A woman fired for premarital sex is topping U.S. news headlines this weekend as the Huffington Post reported this Friday, March 1, that a previous employee of a Christian school has hired known attorney Gloria Allred to sue a Calif. college that allegedly fired her for participating in premarital sex. In certainly strange news, the rumored details on the case went on to reveal that the school then offered the pregnant woman’s former position to her fiancé at the time.
Teri James is the woman behind the “fired for premarital sex” search term, revealing to NBC News this week that she did agree to sign a contract with the San Diego Christian College that required her to not involve in any “sexually immoral behavior during her position … including that of premarital sex.”
"I needed a job in this economy and so I never thought that anything would happen," James explained in defense.
However, James went on to say that she was later humiliated beyond belief after being called into her boss’ office early last fall. She was asked by her supervisor if she was indeed pregnant, and then fired. James not only lost her job, said the report, but also alleges that her fiancé at the time — who is now her husband — was then offered the job, even though it was known that he had sex before their wedding as well.
James intends now to sue the Christian school, as she feels she was treated “very unfairly.”
"I was unmarried, pregnant and they took away my livelihood," James said.
Legal cases that involve teachers at Christian schools who have reportedly been fired for engaging in premarital sex are not necessarily rare either, added the report. Mrs. James’ case is currently ongoing.
