22,000 Sign Petition for Butte Central Teacher

Posted: Updated:
BUTTE -

A Christian national online group has 22,000 signatures on a petition they plan to deliver to the Helena Arch Diocese Thursday morning, hoping to reinstate a teacher from Butte Central who was fired for being pregnant out of wedlock.

Faithful America says they hope to get Shaela Evenson's job back at Butte Central Catholic High School when they go to deliver a petition to the Helena Diocese Bishop, George Leo Thomas Thursday morning.

Aaron Viles, the deputy director for the organization, says they received 22,000 signatures on the petition to help Evenson.

On Thursday local members of Faithful America will head to Helena to deliver the petition.

"I think firing people because they have broken some dogmatic rule sends a very, not a good message," said Aaron Viles, with Faithful America. "Certainly not the message people are inspired to be Christians because of. So I think it's really important people stand up for their faith."

Thursday's event will take place outside of the Bishop's office at the Helena Diocese.

It is set to begin at 11 a.m.
