The Gauntlet has Been Thrown Down

LifeSiteNews is today reporting comments from the Ontario Government's minister of Training, Colleges and Universities, Glen Murray, who has openly told the bishops of Ontario what they can  and cannot teach in Catholic schools, specifically that they are not allowed to teach the Church's doctrines on homosexuality:
“I have to say to the bishops: ‘You’re not allowed to do that anymore,’”
Here we see the tolerance of the left, you can do what you will, as long as you do what we say.  Essentially this in my mind amounts to the beginning of the end of religious freedom in this province, in the same way the raging debate of the Obamacare initiatives in the U.S. have signaled an attack on religious freedoms in our neighbour to the south.

Suresh Dominic of Campaign Life Catholics, has observed that the minister's statements:
“amount to a declaration of war against the Catholic Church and all people who support traditional moral values.”
No longer is the separation of Church and State being respected from the side of the state, so perhaps it's time to respond in kind on the part of the Church.  I hope and pray that our bishops in Ontario will realize what is happening, that the provincial government may be talking cooperation, but it's actions are a blatant attempt to stifle religious freedom in our schools.  A rally was held by parents at Queen's Park last week, but I think the faithful need to see leadership from the top, to see their bishop's responding.  Hopefully, the bishops of Ontario will responds as vigourously to this attack as the American bishops have to the attacks on religious freedom in the U.S.
