Supporters of ousted Eastside Catholic School vice principal Mark Zmuda took their case to Seattle Archbishop J. Peter Sartain on Wednesday, submitting 21,000 signatures on a petition seeking a dialogue and calling for reinstatement of “Mr. Z.”
Eastside Catholic students were in school where they presented their own petition to Principal Mary E. Tracy. Zmuda was forced out in December after the school learned that he had married his male partner last summer.
Editor’s note: We have no way of knowing how many of the 21,000 signatures on that petition are from Catholics – but from this we might infer that the level of Catholic faith formation in the Seattle area is downright pathetic.
