Philippines: Bishops warn Catholic schools cannot reject Catholic teachings

CWN - August 21, 2012

The Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) has issued a warning that the hierarchy may remove the “Catholic” designation from schools that promote dissent from Church teachings.

Archbishop Jose Palma, the president of the CBCP, complained that some Catholic schools have thrown their support behind a family-planning bill that the bishops have strongly opposed. That conflict has sharpened tensions between some schools and their bishops.

A Catholic school “should not teach anything contrary to the official teaching of the Church,” Archbishop Palma said.
