Catholic Website Condemns Hate Mail From the Religious Right

John Borst from the Catholic Education website Tomorrow's Trust wades into the religious right hate mail controversy which stemmed from my support for a unified secular public school system for Ontario. To his credit, Borst argues in his post that the author of the hate mail was "misguided" and that such responses "only hurt the cause of Catholic education rather than help it." He also links to Dymaxion World's contribution to the debate before concluding that "as a Catholic community we have to do better than this...We must also become more involved with this new, very powerful, medium of the Internet. If we continue to ignore it, we do so at the peril of our Catholic school systems."
