Supporters of gay vice principal rally again

SEATTLE — Dozens of people are continuing to demonstrate in support of a former Catholic high school vice principal who was forced to resign after marrying his partner.

The Seattle Times reported that about 80 people rallied Saturday in front of the Catholic Archdiocese of Seattle to show support for Mark Zmuda. Co-organizer Shaun Knittel said the demonstrators want to make sure that no more teachers get fired because they get married.

Eastside Catholic School has previously said that Zmuda signed a contract that states he would follow the official teachings of the church, and gay marriage violates that contract.
