Should the Catholic separate school....?

Recommended Posts

...be preferentially treated by forcing non-Catholics to either pay out of their own pocket or leave to a public school?....

Here's the recent issue on this for here in Saskatchewan: https://thestarphoenix.com/news/local-news/watch-live-court-continues-to-hear-saskatchewan-appeal-of-school-funding

or, for the CBC crowd preferences: https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/saskatchewan/govt-sask-catholic-schools-make-case-appeal-hearing-1.5051334

I wonder what sort of reaction this story would garner if it was about a separate Islamic school district is Saskatchewan.

Will non-Catholics be required to prostrate themselves when submitting their jizya to the Catholic school division?

? who knows?

I'm against our constitutional protections of the separate Catholic school system, but the confusion of the challengers is to why they even think that the Catholic school system wasn't defaulted to this bias.??? I raised this with a skeptic group who also don't notice that the problem lies with the constitution and has to be addressed there.

I don't...protections for separate Islamic schools were not required for a successful confederation and Section 93 Constitution Act in 1867.

Muslims were late to the game compared to Catholics and Protestants.

Good luck with that. You might as well try to rewrite the bible.

Yeah, I agree that it is unlikely. And this is precisely what Karl Marx meant about political cycles in history. As time goes on, we are going to be divided  more and more on a Constitution that dictates selective favors to specific people without a hope unless another revolution can overthrow it by force.

Its the capacity of the thing to dictate that favours flow to wealth and power that it needs to be stripped of.

The Catholicism in the Constitution is an anachronism - a handy sludge like distraction that helps bog down any impetus for change.  It stands more like a symbol communicating that change is a very bad thing and to be avoided and put off at all costs. It's all very profoundly conservative from where I'm sitting.

And then there are people who fear the Constitution is a dangerous symbol of progressivism.  Its hilarious.
