An openly gay first grade teacher at Miami's Saints Peter and Paul Catholic School was sacked after posting pictures of her wedding to social media.
Wrote Morffi on social media: "This weekend, I married the love of my life and, unfortunately, I was terminated from my job as a result".
In an Instagram post, Morffi said, "In their eyes I'm not the right kind of Catholic for my choice in partner".
The principal, Carlota Morales, called Morffi's firing "difficult and necessary" in a letter to parents.
Cini said she didn't know that Morffi was gay, but that it didn't matter to her or other parents.
"We were completely outraged, all of the parents", Samantha Mills, whose child was in Morffi's class a year ago, told the Herald. Peter and Paul Catholic School say they are fighting for the reinstatement of a woman who didn't just teach their children to read and right, but also ran a volunteer organization called #teachHope70x7 that enlisted students to distribute meals to the homeless on weekends.
Parents learned of the firing in a letter they received from the school on Thursday evening, which did not give a reason for the decision.
Instead, about a dozen angry parents showed up at the school the next day, demanding an explanation and speaking to gathered news cameras.
A beloved Miami Catholic school teacher who recently married her partner, was sacked mere days later, angering parents.

"She is the Mother Theresa of teachers, she has made such a big contribution to this school", said parent Samantha Mills. "If something along the way does not continue to stay within that contract, then we have no other choice". One parent even considered withdrawing her child from the school in light of recent developments, the Miami Herald reported.
