SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- Another demonstration is planned for Wednesday evening to protest the morality clauses in the handbooks of San Francisco Catholic high schools.

At issue is language in the Archdiocese Teacher's Handbook, which critics say requires teachers to adhere to church doctrine in their personal lives, not just at school.

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone has revised the language of the original handbook, but protesters say the message remains the same and undermines the mission of Catholic education and a diverse community.
