Teacher sacked for being porn star appeals, claims she can ‘promote Christian values’

A teacher at a parochial school in Germany was fired without notice when church leaders discovered she had a side job — as an award-winning, hardcore pornographic actress working under the name “Julia Pink.” She’s now appealing the judge’s ruling that her dismissal was “legitimate,” stating that she’s capable of teaching “Christian values.”

The teacher-actress lost her job of 17 years teaching children at the Diakonia Germany Evangelical Federal Association in Munich. Church authorities apparently found out about her weekend job when she became too good at it — she won a “shooting star” award at the Venus porn fair, according to the New York Daily News.

“Despite her long years of service, we feel that her other work is incompatible with our message,” a church spokesman said of her dismissal. And a judge apparently agrees. The Daily News reported:

In October, Pink took the Association to court where judge Renate Leier agreed that her dismissal without notice was “unfair” but that the “reasons for doing so were legitimate.”

The judge ruled that: “The applicant is involved with pornographic activities contrary to the Church’s sexual ethics and thereby committed a breach of duty of loyalty that may justify a dismissal.”

But now Pink has decided to appeal that decision.

“I do porn films but that doesn’t mean I can’t teach and that I can’t promote Christian values,” she said. “I myself am a Catholic and a believer. I visit swingers clubs and do porn but so what?”

She’s managed to get some support from at least one parent.

“Millions of people watch porn in Germany and around the world and it doesn’t mean that they can’t bring up their children properly,” said Christian Herman, who has two children taught by her. “So just because this woman is in porn doesn’t mean she can’t do her job as a teacher well.”

The question is, how soon will it be before this attitude reaches the United States? I’m sure the American Civil Liberties Union would love to take on the American version of a Julia Pink case.
