Why should children going to faith schools receive preferential treatment over those going to non-faith schools? Does he feel that non-faith schools are somehow inferior? Does he believe that Catholics who choose to send their children to non-faith schools on the basis of more logical criteria, such as academic excellence or locality, are failing their children somehow or even committing a sin?
If parents choose to send their child to a faith school instead of a perfectly adequate local, non-faith school, they are free to do so, but I strongly object to my taxes being used to fund their transport.
