Catholic Blogger fired for reading Catholic Blogs at Work

Just when I thought it was getting safe to read some good Catholic content on my lunch hour. Many companies permit limited personal access to the internet on company computers, provided it is not something like porn, or other offensive material.

Curt Jester brings us a sad story of a Catholic blogger fired not for writing to his blog, but for reading Catholic blogs. It seems that religion - specifically the Catholic religion - may be a bit offensive to some.

Well, I was wondering how I would find more time for just non-internet reading. Now I know. I'll pack St. Augustine's Confessions, Homiletic and Pastoral Review, Catholic World Report, and the new Compendium.

Wait.....if someone sees those things on my desk, they may get offended.

Quick - hide!
