Catholics should support the abolition of the Ontario’s Catholic Schools

Having a publicly funded Catholic school system hurts the Catholic faith, and cripples its ability to fully meet its own mandate and expectations as defined by the Church. By accepting public money Catholic schools are ultimately as accountable to the state and to the general population as public schools are. Thus, when the government tells Catholic schools that they have to allow gay-straight alliances, or pro-choice clubs they ultimately have no choice other than to accept this command. By accepting public money Catholic schools are just as much required to act in accordance with government policies on human rights and other potential areas of conflict, as are departments of the civil service and public schools.
