A Catholic priest who ministered to Seton Hall University sports teams says his public support for gay rights got him fired.

“I've been fired from SHU for posting a pic on FB supporting LGBT 'NO H8'. I'm sorry it was met with this response. I'll miss my work here,” the Rev. Warren Hall tweeted on Friday.

Hall has since removed the tweet.

Seton Hall is run by the Archdiocese of Newark, New Jersey.

Laurie A. Pine, a spokeswoman for Seton Hall, said in a statement that the university “does not comment on personnel matters.”

“The Archbishop of Newark appoints the Director of Campus Ministry, who serves at his discretion,” she said.

A Change.org petition asking the Archdiocese of Newark John J. Myers to reinstate Hall was started by a Seton Hall student.

“This action is neither in line with the teachings of Jesus Christ, nor is it [in] line with the words of Pope Francis, current leader of the Roman Catholic Church,” Ethan Kraft's petition reads.

More than 4,400 people have signed the petition as of Tuesday morning.
