I don’t have any links to news stories about it, but I know they did (I saw a photograph on a photo-sharing website of a teacher with a rainbow pinwheel on a sign proclaiming he was ‘proud to be a Catholic teacher’), and there are plenty of news stories about their plans to so, from earlier.
That’s taxpayer-funded Catholic education in Ontario, folks.
The OECTA’s decision to march in the World Pride Parade is an ‘internal union matter’; and the feelings of dissenting Catholic teachers, clergy and parents and other faithful Catholics didn’t count for anything with the union leadership.
May I quote myself?
So, Ontario Catholic schools can’t refuse students bringing same-sex ‘partners’ to their proms; they’re not allowed to teach that abortion is wrong any more; they’re not only allowing students to be excused from religious courses, but have bent over backwards in some jurisdictions to accommodate others; but now they can’t even require those attending their schools to attend religious services.
In what way, shape or form are Ontario’s publicly-funded Catholic schools still truly Catholic?
Ontario’s Catholics may do well to wonder whether taking Caesar’s money was worth it, ultimately.
Government funding never comes without strings attached…
“Whose bread I eat, his song I sing.”, as the old saying goes.
And now, this…
Catholic parents in Ontario, if they don’t want their children to potentially be infected with ‘gay rights’ ideology, must withdraw their children from tax-funded ‘Catholic’ education.
