Seton Hall Priest Says He Lost Job for Facebook Post

May 18, 2015

Reverend Warren Hall, a priest and director of campus ministry at Seton Hall University, says he lost his job for a Facebook post backing the NO H8 campaign, which opposes homophobia and backs gay marriage, NJ.com reported. Father Hall posted about his firing on Twitter, but then removed the tweet. Seton Hall officials referred questions to the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Newark, which appoints the director of campus ministry. A spokesperson for the archdiocese said that priests are periodically reassigned. The article, however, noted that Father Hall has been in his position only one year while his predecessor had served five years.
