SANDUSKY (AP) - An Ohio band and choir director says he knew that announcing his engagement to another man likely would mean he could no longer teach at a Roman Catholic school because of the church's teachings on marriage.
Brian Panetta said he was forced to resign recently after he told administrators at Sandusky Central Catholic School about his engagement over the Christmas break.
In a letter to people associated with the school, Panetta calls himself "a proud and gay Catholic" who hopes the church will change its teachings on marriage.
Two other teachers at Catholic schools in Ohio have recently fought their firings over actions that administrators said went against teachings of the church.

Depending on which church one attends, there is an interesting mix of topics planned from the pulpits.
Based on sermons provided to the Sentinel-Tribune, pastors will be discussing the interesting and eclectic mix which are converging on Sunday.
It is Groundhog Day, Super Bowl Sunday and the celebration of The Feast of the Presentation of the Lord, commonly called Candlemas, as well as the last Sunday before the start of the Winter Olympics.
Other references and topics mentioned for Sunday services include the Pope, the Beatitudes, Frosty the Snowman, amputation, happiness, pain, misery and loneliness, to name just a handful.
The one which is probably least known is Candlemas. a Catholic traditional feast day, the Presentation of the Lord is noted in most Bibles. It is 40 days after Christ's birth and the time when Jewish women according to the Mosaic law who had given birth to a man-child was considered unclean for seven days. Moreover she was to remain 33 additional days "in the blood of her purification" to account for the 40-day total.
