sparking outrage from secular groups and questions about the role of teachers in exploring controversial issues.
Hmmm... but they have no issue about teachers exploring controversial issues like being pro-abortion, pro-gay "marriages" etc. etc.

It’s a CATHOLIC school!
People pay money to send their children there, even AFTER paying exorbitant taxes for the government school collective which they cannot use, since it is antithetical to their faith.

"sparking outrage from secular groups and questions about the role of teachers in exploring controversial issues."
These would be the same secular groups who see nothing wrong with teacher forcing classes to attend union protests and encouring studants to attend OWS rallies.
Its a Catholic school. I’m guessing they also impose their religion on the kids.

If some "fearless" nuns were telling kids to sign something in support of infantacide the same whiners would be praising them instead of whining.

And this is why it’s getting harder to distinguish between “real” news and satire!

The hypocracy is obvious.
Fortunately Catholics and Christians in general are fighting back.

But secular groups say this should not happen in publicly-funded institutions. Were pretty offended by it, said Greg Oliver, president of the Canadian Secular Alliance, a group that supports separation of church and state. It just raises the question again: is this the sort of thing that taxpayers should be funding?
Since when are Catholic schools *publicly funded institutions*?
Are they really stupid enough to think that people aren't going to notice that they are objecting to something done in a CATHOLIC high school?
What taxpayer dollars are funding this school?

Individual students have the right to hold whatever opinion they come to independently, Oliver said in a telephone interview, but this is a case of a publicly-funded school system essentially using these children, either indoctrinating them, or using them as a political tool, to advance certain opinions.
This is unintentionally hilarious.
