PRESS STATEMENT of ACT Teachers Party-List Representative Antonio L. Tinio on CBCP threat to strip schools of Catholic status due to pro-RH stand

(Reference: Rep. Antoio Tinio: 09209220817)

The CBCP may well be within its right to strip schools of Catholic status but it yet reveals how Catholic dogma and values are in conflict with modern, secular, and democratic values like women’s rights and academic freedom.  We laud the stand taken by the 150 Ateneo professors for the enactment of the RH Bill and urge the Ateneo administration to respect their right to speak.  We urge other members of the academe, including those in other Catholic schools, to take a similar stand on such a vital issue.20
