Hey Canada Look -- Our Supreme Court Thinks Its American.

Here we go, Canada. Our Supreme Court with its decision today telling parents they cannot take their kids out of "Ethics and Religious Culture" course in Quebec, may as well have been appointed by the great Obama down south.

Unfortunately, I don't think the CCCC's have gone far enough in their commentary on this ruling. For example, I don't object to "comparative religion" as it is a parents and grandparents job to pass on their faith to children and grandkids.

What I do object to, though, is if indeed the "course" assumes or projects the idea that what I believe in is simply "legends" or "myths". At the very least the course needs to be neutral and say, "Christians believe that . . . ". I wonder if the CCCC's made that argument or whether they went for the right of parents to withdraw children instead and ended up losing the baby with the bathwater. Just wondering. You be the judge.
