Question: Since the RC School is Catholic, why is the Holy Cross being Anglican such a problem? Many schools in Belize are Anglican.
From their website: "Today, the Diocese is comprised of 31 churches spread throughout the country. In addition to providing spiritual homes for our many congregations, we are engaged in missionary outreach within and outside of Belize and are actively engaged in international companion diocese relationships. Through our churches and communities, in partnership with the government of Belize, we sponsor one preschool, eighteen primary schools and one high school. Total enrollment is almost five thousand children. Our schools employ about two hundred and fifteen teachers. The diocese also sponsors the Anglican Theological Institute through which we work to equip church members, ordained and lay, to embrace more fully their leadership roles in the church."
Jesse don't get me started on my opinion of the RC school either. It is also a less than ideal situation - it is just a small step ahead of the Holy Cross.
This is not a debate about Religion. It is a concern for the kids.
Even though my family is not catholic I went to an RC school, and my eldest is in a RC school. I have friends and family of many faiths including Moslems, Jews and Bhuddists - Don't try and make this about religion because it isn't. I have nothing for or against the Anglican Church and in fact I attended Anglican services often as a child.
If the Anglican Church and the Government of Belize are willing and able to manage the school that is fantastic - but logic, health and safety and honesty must be part of the equation. That is the point I am trying to make.
