Catholic Education in Ontario faces more problems
#1
In Ontario, the Minister of Education is an MPP named Laurel Broten.  The Canadian Press site (http://www.cp24.com/news/tories-say-they...z28vYJJdfn ) reports:
Quote: Broten also said publicly-funded Catholic schools in Ontario should not be teaching students that abortion is wrong because the anti-bullying law prohibits misogyny.

"Taking away a woman's right to choose could arguably be considered one of the most misogynistic actions that one could take," she said.

It only makes sense.  The 'Catholic' schools should refuse the payola.

I agree that public funding makes us vulnerable to this sort of thing, but we still have to fight against Broten's comments.  We are looking at it becoming official policy that opposing abortion counts as misogyny and bullying.

Here is Cardinal Collins response:http://www.catholicregister.org/news/can...-education

"This is true when it comes to the establishment of anti-bullying groups designed to make the school a better place for all, and in Catholic schools that means following the method outlined in the document Respecting Difference, of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees Association. It is our mission to speak up for all those who suffer, and especially those who are voiceless, for those who are forgotten.

"It is also true when it comes to protecting the freedom of all in the school community to engage in pro-life activities in order to foster a culture of life in which the most vulnerable and voiceless among us are protected and honoured throughout their whole life on earth from the moment of conception to natural death.

"Defending the voiceless is our mission."

Calling men and women who are pro-life "bullies" and "misogynists" ... might actually be bullying.

That's what I think.  The petition for Broten's resignation is using "freedom of religion" language.  I know that some people around here get all indignant about that, but I think it is a good response.

It's left wing hypocrisy. All views are tolerated, except ours.

they are against misogeny but they are not against the slaughter of innocent children?
Huh? Huh? Huh?
