Catholic schools 

There have been examples of publicly-funded Catholic schools taking students to anti-abortion rallies, of gay students being bullied. In March, the most senior Catholic cleric in English Canada wrote warning that “social trends antagonistic to the Gospel gather strength” and that Pride Month should be dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

Why do school systems based around an institution that embraces such teaching continue to receive public funding?

@danso I guess because it's a viewpoint and if you suppress any viewpoint then you're moving away from democracy? As an example, people promote abortion and a large percentage of those promoters think it is a "magical procedure". They don't talk about snipping a live human being's spinal cord with scissors and tossing it in a bucket to die, do they? Nevertheless, abortion is a viewpoint also, so in a democracy it must be accepted.
