Scotland Weighs Forcing Catholic Schools to Teach Same-Sex Marriage, Contraception
The Cardinal Newman Society ^ | 1/14/14 | Matthew Archbold

Posted on 01/14/2014 7:56:39 PM PST by marshmallow

Government ministers of Scotland are demanding that Catholic schools must be forced to teach students about same-sex marriage and about sex clinics which provide contraception, according to The Scottish Express.

A government spokesperson reportedly said, “Denominational schools, like any other local authority schools, are subject to inspection by Education Scotland on the quality of their learning and teaching.”

Michael McGrath, director of the Scottish Catholic Education Service (SCES), was quoted as saying, “The SCES has encouraged the Scottish Government to move beyond the grudging tolerance which this draft and the original guidance showed towards the right of Catholic schools to follow Church guidance when teaching about sexual health and relationships, including marriage.”

It’s so sad to see Western Europe turn into the former Soviet bloc in the East.

Scotland will reap what they sow. By 2050, England will have begun to come under Islamic law in many areas, as Islam is projected to make up over 25% of the population by then, not counting the number of English likely to leave, which will increase as Islam begins to permeate society. Once that happens, Scotland will be the target of Jihad, and expansion of the Dar Al Islam.

You reject Christ and the teachings of the Lord, He has shown throughout history that He has no qualms about sending pagan armies against those who mock His Word.

No surprise. The anglicans forced my Catholic ancestors off of their farms during the famine of the 1840’s and they’re up to no good again.

I wonder if they will force this edict on mudslime madrassas as well. Doubt it.

If forced to do so, teach it this way:

The government, which has been taken over by anti-christian ministers who do not follow God’s teachings have decided that our school be required to tell you their lies. Understand that we are being forced to pass these lies on to you but we will also teach the truth that is in the Bible. That way you will be able to know for your self what is right and what is wrong.

And when you come of age, you will know which ministers to keep in office and which ministers must be removed from power.

Even though I agree with you in your prediction about the outcome with regard to England, I think your timeline is optimistic. If England survives the next 10 years without the ragheads becoming the dominate culture, I would be surprised.

It depends a lot on the EU status, Cameron’s commitment to a referendum etc. The British experience high numbers of natives leaving the country, yet a critically low birthrate. Muslims on the other hand, breed like rabits, and bring ALL their relatives into the country with them to breed.

Sharia patrols as seen in London, by 2020, will not just be blocks, they will be cities. Birmingham is the most disturbing example of an exploding Islamic population.

However, compared to Austria, Britain is looking good. Austria could be over 35% Islamic by 2050

I’m sorry.....but not as optomistic to the 2050 projection. I think it will be much sooner having lived there.

The peeps are under the opiate of ‘pop culture’ and ‘trash headlines’ from their so-called “media”. Have been for some time.

The C of E church I attended and played for was HEAVILY under the influence of the whole “new age” crap.

I remember being in a bible study where we were supposed to “concentrate on a candle” and “meditate on it’s flame in silence” while chanting what the mediator wanted us to chant.

Meanwhile....”free trade coffee” was always served after church. Nauseating.

Yep! Birmingham has a HUGE problem. As does Sheffield, Leeds, and Bradford.

In fact....some years ago, some kids made a video “taking the piss” out Birmingham (punk style).

Had friends that lived in a certain district in Sheffield with a huge Paki community. The cabbies wouldn’t even come pick us up after a party.

Scotland has contributed so much to mankind in the past, but I feel that if/when it achieves independence, the fever of it all will hasten to turn Scotland completely into a tiny, backward wasteland of leftism and post-modernism.

Maybe there is no connection between the two, but I think they are running in parallel tracks.

I’m getting to where I’ll even be surprised if the US lasts much more than a decade. Not due to the ragheads, but due to its own cultural and moral rot. Between socialism, dope, and homo-marriage, America’s embrace of evil will doom it just as quickly.

Simple question: Do these schools take money from the state? If yes, than they are government schools and their real God is the state. If not, they should fight this tooth and nail even if it means organizing schools underground, directing home education, or closing in protest.

That will never happen. After it’s finished with Christianity and Judaism, leftism will go after Islam. Leftism is worse than Islam.

The Soviet system started with, among other things, abolition of the "bourgeois institution of marriage". Homosexuality as such was probably too much a visceral taboo to try, but on-demand divorce and abortion became the norm in the early Soviet days. It is a couple of decades later that Stalin realized that turning the Russians into rifle-carrying hippies is not good for world domination and gradually the soviet Union became as we remember it in the 50's through 80's, a socially conservative society.

No force will be necessary here. "Common Core" will get the job done, and some bishops are already forcing it upon their diocesan schools.

Well, in the Soviet Bloc they didn't like homos either. Still don't.

It is worthy to note, that Stalin for the most part was very much a conservative in these kinds of matters, and that certainly was a big factor in how the Soviet Union, even after his death, was for the most part a fairly conservative society in that respect.

Many of the original Bolsheviks were much more Libertine, of course Stalin inevitably dealt with all of them.

I don't say this to defend Stalin, who of course was a monster.

I find it interesting that Stalin would be so insistent on a peripheral moral behavior of the Soviet people. A semblance of morality without any interior relation to the Author of morality. After years of experimentation he knew that it was better to at least appear to be moral. Here is a quote by him:

America is like a healthy body and its resistance is threefold: its patriotism, its morality, and its spiritual life. If we can undermine these three areas, America will collapse from within.

Stalin’s godless morality was, of course, all a rickety structure. The Party leadership had serial marriages and girls on the side, drank themselves into stupor regularly, let alone the fundamental sin of murder, theft and deception that they practiced as a line of work.

But indeed: for the rank and file, marital affairs were grounds for demotions, homosexuality was a criminal offense, children were taught strict chastity till marriage. Abortions though were available practically without restriction, although I believe there was a period when they were banned: the country needed cannon fodder.

The Celtic nationalists and grievance mongers have always been anti-Israel. The IRA used to train in PLO camps and in Libya and the Maoist "Scottish National Liberation Army" is no different. Although the Scottish National Party is a standard political party they are pretty far left. And while Celtic nationalists have no trouble labeling the "base, brutal, and bloody Saxon" a "foreign invader," they are considerably more sympathetic to moslems . . . and Communism.

Ironically, Scotland is practically an object of idolatrous devotion by some "palaeoconservatives." The neo-Confederates base their whole claim to a separate nationhood on being "Celts" rather than Anglo-Saxons.

First it's the Jews, and then they come after the Catholics.

The Catholic Church in Scotland is a disgrace. If you don't believe me, check out Catholic Truth Scotland. Warning: this is a traditionalist site and Catholic traditionalists are not philo-Semitic, though I've never read anything awful there like I have a lot of traditionalist Catholic sites.

best of luck to Scotland.

I'm afraid it's too late for any country in Europe. I'd be happy to be proved wrong, but I don't think I will.
