Pluralism, Religion, and Public Policy: The Loyola case

Here is a very helpful page, which gathers a lot of information about the interesting (and, I think, troubling) case in Canada called Loyola High School and John Zucchi v. Michelle Courchesne, in her capacity as Minister of Education.  The question (way-simplified) is whether Loyola High School (which is Catholic) can be required to offer the standard "Ethics and Religious Culture" classes, given that the content of those (government-mandated) classes is (Loyola claims) contrary to the school's Catholic mission and character.  Prof. Douglas Farrow is on the case, and here is his expert report.
