Why bishops are to blame for empty Catholic churches across Australia – LifeSite News articleThis article compares the 1970s religious education programs with current programs and discloses that, in the 1970s, the bishops had changed the religious education curricula in Australian Catholic schools, so that students are only taught half of the Catholic faith.  Students are led to believe that everyone goes to heaven.  There is no reward for living a moral life and no penalty for leading an immoral one.  Graduates of Catholic schools therefore do not practise their faith.  No one has told the parents.  It has been one of the greatest deceits of all time!
