Lou Iacobelli welcomes listeners to a our feature program: building a culture of life.
On September 12, 2012, Dr. Steve Tourloukis filed a court Application against the Hamilton Wentworth District School Board. Why? He was forced to take this legal step after the school board refused his repeated requests for religious accommodation. Tourloukis is simply seeking a court order declaring that as a practicing Christian Greek Orthodox and parent he ought to have the right and the final authority over his children’s education, especially their moral education. He wants the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board to provide him with advance notification of any class, session or material to be covered which conflicts with his religious beliefs. Tourloukis has merely tried to exercise his parental rights. The board’s answer to his request has been, no.
