jean Charest is an enormous disappointment. I object to this mandatory ethics and religion course that teaches all religions are equal and wants to make sure that children abandon their faith at an early age. It attempts to teach its own atheist "ethics". Teaching one's faith should be left up to parents. Many parents object to this course, but it has been imposed by the atheists from Quebec city. Loyola High School won a case against the atheists from Quebec study, but now charest is appealing.
In a decision handed down Friday, Justice Gérard Dugré agreed with Loyola's opposition to teaching the course on the grounds of religious freedom.
Loyola argued the course was redundant because the school already offers instruction on ethics and morality from a Catholic point of view.
Quebec's Education Ministry violated Loyola's freedom of religion as guaranteed by the provincial charter of rights, Dugré said in his decision.
Premier Jean Charest said the government will likely appeal the ruling. Officials with the Catholic school said they will comment on the decision Monday afternoon.
Let's hope the Supremes understand freedom of religion. This is another reason we shouldn't have allowed Quebec to do away with its constitutionally guaranteed confessional school boards
