Ontario’s new anti-bullying ‘gay-straight’ law was born of heroism – thestar.com.
Excellent article by Heather Mallick. Here is just an excerpt. Anyone so moved might write to her, and also add your comments online.
….So now I will go in the opposite direction and assume that ethical Catholic schools will now refuse to accept money from the “gay-straight alliance” mandating government and leave the public system. They will set up as independent religious schools — perhaps a home school in a home the size of Hogwarts — and finance them privately. And I will salute their courage.
As an atheist — “humanist” is the current term — I avoid writing about religion. But this issue seems more about ethics and pride. If following the law so appalls Catholic boards, then they must not let an anti-bullying government bully them into decency.
