Anonymous Threatens Columbus Diocese over Gay Teacher's Firing

COLUMBUS -- The hacktivist group, Anonymous, is threatening to dig up dirt on members of the Columbus Catholic Diocese if a fired gay teacher is not allowed to return to her job at Bishop Watterson High School.
The group released a video Friday in support of former phys-ed teacher Carla Hale, who was fired from Bishop Watterson after referring to her partner as her spouse in a published obituary.
The Anonymous video includes the group's trademark Guy Fawkes mask, along with a computer-generated voice that threatens to find "skeletons" in the records of members of the Diocese if Hale is not reinstated.
The video's release comes after dozens of students gathered outside the Diocese's Downtown office on Friday morning to protest Hale's firing.
