The Province of Quebec had instructed all schools, including faith-based ones, to teach a course labeled "Ethics and Religious Culture" in a fashion that would make their faith equal to others such as Wicca and paganism. That didn't sell well with Loyola High School, established by Jesuits, and the school filed suit.
"The issue in this case was that the government not only identified those learning outcomes, but also proscribed how you're supposed to attain that," explains Bruce Clemenger, president of the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada. "[Quebec's order] included when teaching ethics you're supposed to teach ethics from a common, morally neutral perspective ‚Äď so you're not to challenge the students in terms of their own ethical reasoning and kind of remain silent on whatever conclusion they may come to."

Steve, there are a lot of people around the world who believe they are "contending for the faith", but you have to look at what "faith" they are contending for. If it is not "justification by faith alone in Christ alone", then it is not the faith of the Bible.
Here's a question for you, and anyone else who would care to answer it, what do you understand by the expression "reconciled to God" in the following apostolic exhortation? Be as detailed as you would like.
2 Corinthians 5:20 KJV (20) Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ's stead, be ye reconciled to God.

Anybody that has gone searching for Colleges with their children, knows its the Catholic Universities in general that are contending for the faith. Sadly, Protestants like money and secular adoration too much to keep their institutions faithful. Sure, expect legions of Satans reprobates to kick and scream over this article, but its clear who the LORD is watching over in the area of education during these dark days of wickedness
I should have thought that a Jesuit School WAS on a par with wicca and paganism, what with their church having magic show priests, special effects and smoke machines, incantations for the dead, worship of skeletons, etc.
