Catholic teachers rallied Tuesday in Cincinnati to protest the morality clause in their contracts. The contract states teachers cannot support homosexuality, sexual activity out of wedlock and artificial insemination. Teacher Molly Shumate says she has a very personal reason not to sign the agreement.  "The main reason I will not sign this contract is my son is gay, and the day he came out to me, the world was lifted off of his shoulder as well as mine, and it was at that moment that I said to myself I will never hide who he is, be embarrassed of who he is and at that point I said I'm going to use this opportunity to make a difference." The teachers have more than one thousand signatures on a petition to the local archdiocese.
