They have overstepped the line - this is not okay. It's disgusting actually
And they wonder why so many people shun organised religion

I wouldn't be surprised that this was put to every catholic school and also any other Lutheran or Anglican school. I think without the support of the parish priest or pastor,, it might not even get to the principals. I would expect the religious schools to at least point out what the 'ideal' 'biblical' situation should be. as the bible says, man and woman joined together and go forth and multiply. I seriously doubt that most of the teachers/ principals these days would still have such narrow views of the world. I know when I was at high school forty years ago we had some very open and frank discussions about life, and relationships, and reproduction. way before ivf, and same sex couples or aids had even become common place. I think it is ok to encourage acceptance. marie.

Teen mums were asked to leave my high school. We had one in my year (in year 9) and several in the few years ahead of mine.
There was a lot of shoving of religion down throats. The teachers and even maintenance staff had to be Christian and regularly attending church as well.

I'd be furious.
I don't understand why they keep saying same-sex couples getting married would ruin the sanctity of marriage???? I mean, straight people sh*t all over marriage constantly and always have???? Plus, marriage is a man-made concept???? Why can it not evolve with the rest of society???

I am torn on this. Im guessing the pamphlet is a reflection of what the catholic church in australia teaches and believes? Whilst I disagree with their stance on gay marriage, I understand their rights to have their own beliefs. If it were a muslim school telling girls to dress modestly, would it get the same backlash? I wouldnt send my child to a catholic school, because I dont personally agree with their fundamental beliefs and teachings. I think its unfair to send your child to a religious school, &then get upset when the school teaches principles of that religion. As long as the school is upfront about their beliefs and what they teach from the beginning.

hi delirium i haven't read the pamphlet, so i don't know what it says, but why do you say it is "bigotry dressed up as morality " . unless it says the other lifestyles are evil or not to be accepted, it is not bigotry to say this is what the catholic church teaches. same as it is not bigotry for a muslim to say we believe xyz. xyz is fine if that is what they believe, but to say abc is wrong and vile and not allowed that is bigotry, that is my understanding anyway. marie.
