Obviously Canada needs a wall of separation between church and state
.
.....and we in America need to enforce our own wall of separation before the vatican takes over and makes everyone wear white sheets, red shoes, and punk hairdoos

ACtually, public funding of religious schools ensures that standard approved curricula are taught.

That's not true.

There are many private schools in Ontario that follow the standards and approved curricula, all without receiving tax funding. They follow the rules because the laws in Ontario require them to do so in order to be considered an accredited educational institution. If they lose their accreditation, the province by law can shut them down.

Catholic schools in Ontario were funded by tax dollars as a result of lobbying by the Catholic school supporters, and a provincial premier (Bill Davis) who was willing to do what they asked.

GSA and similar radical homosexual hate groups add greatly to teen suicide, encouraging young people to engage in behavior they later can't live with and lying to them and telling them they can never change.

This is quite the opposite of science!

The best thing homosexuals can do for children is to stay FAR AWAY.

You sexually sick, misogynist, lying, reprehensible, right wing Catholics need to be bullied and disfranchised if you continue to act out your bigotries.
