Ontario is looking to pass a bill pointed directly at Catholic schools.
Their religion necessitates that they argue for their right to discriminate (while taking taxpayer money paid, in part, by the demographic they’re discriminating against). And yet they still consider themselves a religion of love.
The proposal, which was introduced by Ontario Education Minister Laurel Broten on May 25, would ban Catholic schools from stopping clubs that go by the “Gay-Straight Alliance” name. This would mean, in essence, that these religious schools would be forced to recognize the clubs by name if requested by the student body. The decision to consider this mandate is complicated, especially considering that the Catholic school system in Ontario is publicly-funded.
Love deserves better than them.
