The Quebec Court of Appeals has ruled against a private, Catholic high school desiring to teach a global religion course from a Catholic perspective.

The Court ruled that Loyola High School must fulfill Quebec's mandatory religious culture education requirement through a “secular” and “neutral” course provided by the government. Loyola had sought to win the right to use its own course, which teaches religion from a Catholic perspective.
“Exposing students to the global study of religions in a neutral perspective without requiring them to adhere to it, is not an infringement of freedom of religion,” stated the Quebec appeals court.

what a bunch of baloney

they should be able to teach whatever they want

if i were the president of that school, i would go out with a fight to combat this

EDIT: Reminds me of how, to go to a college where I live, you are required to attend environmentalist classes to graduate. No thanks... not going to waste my time and money to attend that
