Members of Quebec's only Mennonite community say they may move to Ontario or New Brunswick so they can keep their children in a private school that suits their religious beliefs.
Fifteen English-speaking Mennonite families in this small community in the Monteregie region say they won't send their children to government-approved schools, balking at the teaching of evolution, the acceptance of gays and lesbians and low "morality standards."
They say they are considering relocation out of fear that child-protection officials will seize their children....
Follower... thanks for being astute, and I really can' find anything later than 2007 on the article, I assume they left the backward province of Quebec, and went somewhere else in Canada.

He told LifeSiteNews.com that homeschoolers in the province must be receiving an equivalent education as those in public schools, which means the provincial curriculum must be followed. That curriculum, with its pro-gay sex education and its teaching of evolution, remains unacceptable to many.

This is just another glaring example of our times.
Let this be a WARNING and a CALL to all who truly. Pursue/Follow Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior.

CALL: Let's humble ourselves before our God and Savior, REPENT, REPENT, REPENT every one of us! Cry out to God for Holy REVIVAL!
