Quebec: Schools Must Teach About ALL Religions! Christians: Stop Oppressing Us!

A Quebec provincial judge has ruled against a group of Christian parents who were outraged that their children were being taught about all of the world's major religions as well as aboriginal Canadian faiths.
Quebec Superior Court Justice Jean-Guy Dubois dismissed a bid by parents in Drummondville, Que., who said the course on ethics and religious culture introduced across the province last year was undermining their efforts to instill Christian faith in their children. "In light of all the evidence presented, the court does not see how the course limits the plaintiff's freedom of conscience and of religion for the children when it provides an overall presentation of various religions without obliging the children to adhere to them," Judge Dubois wrote.
Last year Catholic groups organized protest marches against the courses in several Quebec cities, with parents demanding that their children be exempted from attending. What's Québécois for "tough shit"?
