Gay religious education teacher sacked in the Canary Islands

c9efd320-1463-421a-9fa3-174e2f761156.jpg

Luis Alberto Gonzalez Delgado, a religious education teacher in two secondary schools in Lanzarote in the Canary Islands wrote a letter to El Pais, a Spanish daily newspaper, which was published on 28 July that said – “I married a man in 2012. This wouldn’t be of any importance if it was not for the fact that I work as a religious education teacher in two public secondary schools in Lanzarote. At the end of the year I got married, I thought it was opportune for reasons of transparency, that I reveal my status to the bishop.”

In Spain, same sex marriage has been legal since 2005, but the Catholic Church has remained opposed to this. Luis thought he would be sacked, but his contract was renewed each year. In his letter, Luis wrote – “Either the bishop of the Canaries doesn’t believe the subject is important or he has a new approach to the subject in his jurisdiction. This is good news.”

However, two weeks after this letter was published, Luis, who had been a teacher at these schools for 15 years, received a letter telling him his services were no longer required. Luis is Catholic and does not want to leave the church, but recognises that being a man in a same sex marriage conflicts with the church.

Perhaps Luis should have kept quiet about his marriage to his same sex partner. Perhaps the bishop of the Canary Islands had been sympathetic to same sex marriage privately, but could not openly support this.
