I posted a news article a while ago about a group of Mennonites who were forced to leave their homes and province because their school’s curriculum did not meet Quebec’s standards…
I just came across another interesting piece in the National Post about a new curriculum being introduced into Quebec schools. It is very ambitious in scope and will be incorporated into students education throughout primary and secondary education.
Here is a link to a video that is basically Quebec gov’n propaganda supporting the curriculum.
I guess it has always been a struggle for me to understand the separation of church and state. If one of the key tasks of the state is to uphold justice and if justice is ultimately rooted in who God is then the idea of separation of church and state is not clear… I think its a legitimate distinction (Luke 20:25) but it’s not black and white.
The church has already been pushed out of any meaningful contribution to public policy but now the gov’n is intruding into what has traditionally been the role of the church. Their message is relativism, the religion of secularism. And… attendance is mandatory. Maybe we could make church attendance mandatory as well!
Trudeau once said that the State has no business intruding into the bedrooms of its citizens… but apparently that is the only place that is off limits.
Anyway, read this article from the NP. I think the writer makes some good points.
