I don’t know what the CCCB directive regarding obliterating the Lahey letter from religious ed texts had to say, but seems that at least two school boards have decided that they know better and ergo, contrary to the wishes of the CCCB, the disgraced bishop’s name and words will retain pride of place in the textbooks.
23 March 2010: Accused bishop’s letter to stay in textbooks
Catholic schools in Cornwall Ontario, are, by the way, part of the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.
Have Ottawa’s Archbishop Prendergast and Cornwall’s Bishop Durocher approved the decisions of their respective boards?
There must be a little in-house fighting and bickering going on behind closed doors over this one 🙂
So, for now, some school boards have complied with the wishes of the CCCB, others have not. For the latter, children will continue to be reminded by Lahey that when they behold him they see God.
I suggest that parents who do not want their children to equate Lahey with God and/or godliness contact their school board and demand that the textbooks be removed.
Enough for now,
