If anyone doubts that some work needs to be done in restoring the “Catholic” in Catholic education, check out this third grade lesson in a local Catholic elementary school:
The children were then asked to write a short essay demonstrating their love for Mother Earth. Last I checked, Animism and other forms of Paganism are still heresy and hardly in line with the teaching of Catholic values the archdiocese advertises.
I don’t want to guess what was taught during the spring and fall equinox.
(I’m witholding the name of the school to protect the child, but it is a Milwaukee Archdiocese Catholic elementary school in Waukesha.)
