Schools and religion

Right now our schools are controlled by anti-religion ideologues. They have a very specific agenda they want to push. The problem with our school system in Canada is that it is very conducive to this type of manipulation. The reason si simple. Schools are centrally controlled. A few bureaucrats decide what every school must look like in the province. Here's how it should be: Give the students the money and let them decide. If the funding for education in NL was divided equally amongst all students, they would all get $12,500. Then they could do whatever they want with it. If they want to attend a Catholic school, they can do so. If they want to attend a non-religious school, that's fine as well. There could be schools for various religions. The market would decide. As it is right now, kids are forced to be taught all kinds of immorality and they have no other choice. They could go to a private school but it's very expensive because it's not sponsored. There have been outrageous attempts to teach kids every imaginable type of immorality and deviancy and claim that it is normal and natural. They teach kids that any sexual expression, at any age, is not only allowed but is very healthy and will make them happy. If parents disagree with this TOO BAD. Two groups want to keep schools the way they are now and will fight tooth and nail to do so. One group is the union because no competition is always better for the people in an industry. The other are the thought-influencers, the activists. They don't want to have to do the hard work of convincing every school to teach their programs. They'd prefer to have easy access to policymakers who can enact their teachings at the flick of a switch. My opinion is if you want to teach kids all kinds of deviancy, I would say that as a parent that is your right, but you do not have the right to force everyone to do the same.

  1. As a practicing Catholic and a teacher, I find this article ridiculous. You make broad ranging statements with no support, and seemingly paint all school boards, schools, administrators and teachers with the same brush. Perhaps if you would like people to take the blog seriously, you could take a little time and find supporting evidence for your claims in Government documents and Curriculum Guides, which are readily available on any Department of Education website in the country.

    Then, if you find evidence to support your claims, you should include those in your writing so it doesn't come off as an angry rant.

    If I was your teacher, all this would be stated with this quote:

    "You need to provide specific and verified sources to support your claims, please find these and resubmit."
