Sep­a­rate school sys­tem equals en­ti­tle­ment

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: It’s time for one school sys­tem (July 13)

It is trans­par­ently clear that a sep­a­rate school sys­tem (which caters to Ro­man Catholics) that is pub­licly funded must be abol­ished for a multitude of rea­sons as noted in Mr. Ro­den’s ar­ti­cle.

The mis­in­for­ma­tion and po­lit­i­cal ma­nip­u­la­tion which has per­sisted for decades to wrongly jus­tify the ex­is­tence of the sep­a­rate school sys­tem is ob­vi­ously (well … to most peo­ple) rep­re­hen­si­ble. Of course, as soon as there is the slight­est scent of a po­lit­i­cal threat to amal­ga­mate the school sys­tems, Sun­day’s mass is all about the need to rally as united Ro­man Catholics to pro­tect the con­tin­u­ance of their dis­crim­i­na­tory school sys­tem. It is a supreme act of en­ti­tle­ment and un­abashed self­ish­ness.

I don’t think Je­sus would ap­prove, but I’m sure the Pope does. Oh, and by the way, when Kath­leen Wynne loses the next pro­vin­cial elec­tion, she can’t ap­ply for a job with the sep­a­rate school board be­cause she is gay. Heaven for­bid. Don’t worry, I’ll go to con­fes­sion for my sar­casm and put a lit­tle ex­tra in the en­ve­lope. Kevin Boyd, Hamil­ton
