Catholic schools in Spain refusing to allow parents to opt kids out of controversial course Madrid, Jun 20, 2007 / 12:03 pm (CNA).-
The civil rights watchdog organization HazteOir.org has reported that a number of schools run by religious congregations are not allowing parents to opt their children out of the controversial Education for Citizenship course.
The EcP course blatantly promotes the normalization of homosexuality and the societal acceptance abortion among other issues. The website has published a list of schools with how they rank in allowing parents to conscientiously object to the government-sponsored class. The data for the list comes from several associations that are promoting the right of parents to exercise conscientious objection.
Several Catholic schools in Madrid, Toledo, Majadahonda, Valdemoro and Huelva are listed among those not allowing parents to exclude their children from the course.
Of course, I do not agree with them, but I understand them, very well indeed.
