Catholic high school appeals to be allowed to teach the faith

Are you worried about where the US government assault on religious liberty might lead?  A Catholic high school in Quebec is appealing to the Canadian Supreme Court to be able to teach the Catholic faith to students.  A lower court ordered the school to stop teaching its religion and morality class and instead teach a government-provided secular course on ethics.  The government course clearly violates Catholic moral teaching.  

The appeals court made this ruling based on the proposition that Catholic schools, as corporations, do not have religious freedom–that only individuals have religious freedom.  This is exactly the argument put forth by the Obama Department of Justice in their defense of the many lawsuits against the HHS.  

We are headed down a very dangerous path, indeed.
