The Real Story

This week the gay magazine Xtra reported that teachers in a Catholic school were involving their students in right to life issues by circulating a petition supporting a bill to redefine the legal beginning of life. Now the Star has picked up the story. The spectacle of Catholics behaving as Catholics is hardly newsworthy but take a closer look at the immediate effect these stories have. They tend to generate a great deal of response in the combox that borders on sheer hatred. Much of the commentary consists of questioning the use of tax dollars to further a religious agenda. My guess is that this sort of news coverage is a softening up for a future challenge to separate school funding.

Glad to know that Xtra is following what Catholic schools do. Interesting that "People for Education" (e.g. total statist control) consider this a "controversial" issue. All of this stinks of an approach to "education" right out of the National Socialists Teachers Federation guidelines...

We are truly living in a world that is standing on its head, but thinks it is upright.

Wondering if OECTA will defend these teachers right to choose how to educate...?

Nope.... OECTA is busy promoting "pink" and worrying about negotiations with the government vis-a-vis personal financial matters.
