#OCSB back down allow LGBT book “Drama” . #catholic #catholicmetoo #tcdsb #ottnews #onted @archtoronto #onpoli #anticatholic #noprinciples

UPDATE: OCSB wimps out and backs down!! trying to maximize enrollment of kids whose parents hate CATHOLIC teaching! 10yo (Grade 4 and above) will be allowed free acccess to read/takeout book. Activists are now screaming that this is too tight and they want full K-8 access (“no censorship yada yada”
OCSB has removed a novel from its K-6 libraries and the CBC is having a fit.
– it is not banned for use by teachers. it is still being used in classrooms (a cartoon book in Grade 6 when they should be reading CSLewis and Tolkien!)
– it is still available in libraries in OCSB middle schools (ie to 12yos in Grade 7). How is this appropriate for young Catholic minds???
– OCSB was warned THREE years ago about this book!
– OCSB is still radical pro LGBT. Just yesterday, they had radical Kevin Welbes-Godin (google his name!) of Genderbread fame of OECTA/EGALE presenting to OCSB teachers. OCSB refused to make public his presentation to OCSB
Please share!!

Upcoming disastrous CCCB conference on Evangelization. #catholic #catholicmetoo

Things are in free-fall in the Canadian church. Ontario will soon be like Quebec with 3% attendance etc.. (see `related` links). The OECTA run schools are a disaster with 95% of kids rejecting the Faith before they even graduate (a few are recovered by CCO in Uni)

But who do the Bishops invite to a conference on Evangelization?? A Richard Rohr buddy who will talk about meditation for kids!

A New Dreaming, the Ancient Seeking: LivingReligious Life since Vatican II

Vatican II’s call for the refounding of Religious Life set in motion an adventure of large proportions for many congregations of women religious. The adventure has been bearing fruit in a variety of ways for almost fifty years. As that journey continues here in Canada numerous congregations have been responding to a further call for reframing their missions through a challenge placed before them by Thomas Berry, OP. In his words: “the time has come when the single greatest service that women religious could make to the larger destinies of the human, the Christian and the Earth community would be the recovery of our human and Christian intimacy with the spontaneities of all those wonderful participants in the universe of being.”  Thomas Berry, Women Religious: The Voice of the Earth, UISG Bulletin, #95 (Summer ’93) “Evangelization, New Challenges.”  This lecture will explore changes in religious life since Vatican II and seek to understand how some religious are responding with fidelity to the gospel in light of the New/Ancient Story.

#OCSB pushing LGBT agenda with LGBTQI2S Teacher training. @archottawa #catholic

Given the OCSB and OECTA history in this area (promoting gender transitions, refusing to teach catechism on sexual matters), this workshop will be an attack on our faith!

If the OCSB is confident in what teachers will be told, why not invite the Archbishop or the auxiliary Bishop?



Frmr #OECTA Prez says probort #catholic teacher/tweeter is a “faithful” Catholic ! #tcdsb #catholicteachers #ocsb #onted #prolife

When the union or a priest tells you the Ontario “catholic” system is full of “faithful” teachers, question them on what ” faithful” means! It could mean proabort, proLGBT sex, pro euthanasia, etc etc!

#Catholic school trustees turn system into “multi-faith” school sytem. #ottnews #onted #onpoli #tcdsb #ocsb #hcdsb

The Catholic trustees have totally given up on running a Catholic school system. It is now a defacto multi-faith system.

even though “Open Access” to all faiths applies to only Grade 9-12, the Ottawa OCSB allows anybody to go K-Grade 8. They don’t even know how many non-Catholics go to their elementary schools. One retired principal stated that his elementary “catholic” school was >50% non Catholic. (OCSB definition of “Catholic” is a child that has a stepmom or non-custodial parent have an old Catholic baptism certificate laying around)

One OCSB student said his homeroom in Grade 11 was >60% muslim and he was the ONLY student in entire class that attended Sunday mass!


The Catholic Bishops only accepted “Open Access” reluctantly after Bill Davis lost his majority and the Liberals/ made it a condition of full funding! Even 15 years ago, there was consideration in Catholic circles to go back and get Open Access revoked.

https://www.ocsta.on.ca/ocsta/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/Resource-Material.pdf   (page 6)

Now OCSTA has TOTALLY thrown in the towel. They realize that Catholic-only schools will fail due to demographics (even with a loose definition of a student’s Catholicity (stepmom birth certificate)

The result? Catholic school grads are less biblical than public school grads! Maybe 3% Sunday mass attendance after age 18.




The bad news is that Public “Catholic” High Schools are WORSE than
Public schools in many areas:
– more likely to support Same Sex Marriage
– more likely to want even bigger government
– more likely to feel helpless in dealing with problems in life
– more likely to believe that Religion is a Private Matter that should be Kept
Out of Public Debates about Social and Political Issues
– less likely to feel an obligation to vote
less likely to believe God or the Bible Help Me Decide what is Right
and Wrong

– less likely to have boycotted a company for its political or social views and less likely to have participated in a demonstration or protest

Areas where Public and Public Catholic are virtually identical:

– volunteer hours

– rate of cohabitation before marriage



2016 results:

•no difference with public schools of rate of divorce
•Catholic grads more likely to be gay/bi/trans
•same as public school in believing so-called gay marriage is ok
•do not volunteer any more than public school grads
more likely to believe that science conflicts with religion
•-Less likely than public school grads to believe the bible is an infallible guide for behaviour







OCCB’s education officer, Msgr. Kenneth Robitaille, and an expert on separate school matters, Fr. Raymond Durocher, prepared for the bishops a commentary in response to Davis’ proposal. With regard to open access for students, they wrote that that requirement did not make sense because the highest court in the land had described a separate school as one characterized by a class of people united by one faith, by trustees elected by these people, by teachers of the same faith selected by the trustees, by programs controlled by the trustees which reflect the tenets of
the faith, and by pupils of the same faith. In other words, separate school trustees have a
constitutional right to admit only Catholics to their schools and to accept a non-Catholic student only on an exceptional basis.

Nevertheless, the OCCB decided to accept the premier’s condition. In a public statement and a pastoral guideline, the bishops expressed their assurance that the arrangements required with reference to the admission of non-Catholic pupils could be made without endangering the
Catholic character of the Catholic high schools. They also expressed the concept that the
admission of non-Catholic students was congruent with the ecumenical mission of the Catholic school.
By the time the Ontario legislature considered Bill 30 on funding for Catholic high schools, there was a minority government under Liberal Premier David Peterson. His minister of education, Sean Conway, presented legislation which provided for non-Catholic students who needed to attend a Catholic high school for reasons of special programs or geographical accessibility, or who simply wished to enrol in a Catholic high school. Students attending the school out of necessity would be exempted from religious education. The others would have to apply for exemption to the separate board, which could grant or refuse the request. Furthermore, admission
of non-Catholics would be subject to the availability of space. After first reading of Bill 30, the legislation was referred to the standing committee on social development.
The Committee’s New Democratic Party and Progressive Conservative members objected to the space limitation to open access and to the trustees’ power to grant or refuse exemption from religious education classes and asked that these clauses be removed from the bill. Conway realized that refusal to accede to their demands could result in the defeat of the bill at second reading — the PCs and NDP constituted a majority of the legislature. The final version of Bill 30 provided that any child of a public or separate school supporter could attend a Catholic high school and that no child of a public school supporter would be required to take part in any\ program or course of study in religious education where a parent or guardian applied in writing
 to the Catholic school board for exemption.

#OECTA opposes Parents’ rights; pushes gender fluidity etc. #tcdsb #ocsb #otnews @archtoronto #onted #onpoli

Here is OECTA position:


OectaSubmissionNov2018_v2  PDF

“In this effort, enumerating a formal “Parents’ Bill of Rights” is an unhelpful exercise –
one that threatens to drive a wedge between parents and teachers”

ie. “trust us, and you have NO rights!!

If the government is intent on developing a new HPE curriculum, it must provide
teachers with relevant, up-to-date information and resources. Topics such as
consent, gender expression, and a host of LGBTQ+ issues must be included to
ensure that students are prepared for the realities and challenges of modern life.
While it might make some members of the community uncomfortable, we cannot
ignore the fact that students are already learning about these topics on the internet
or from their peers – it is crucial that the publicly funded education system provide
them with proper information, from a trained source (Jolly 2015). It is also
imperative that the curriculum be informed by a broad base of subject matter
experts, including teachers and other education stakeholders, to ensure the safety
and well-being of all students.

ie. we want to indoctrinate your with anti-Catholic gender fluidity etc etc!!


and NO standardized EQA  tests!!


But the Church teaches that parents and families DO have rights! Lots of them! (including full school choice)


Article 5

Since they have conferred life on their children, parents have the original, primary and inalienable right to educate them; hence they must be acknowledged as the first and foremost educators of their children.

a) Parents have the right to educate their children in conformity with their moral and religious convictions, taking into account the cultural traditions of the family which favor the good and the dignity of the child; they should also receive from society the necessary aid and assistance to perform their educational role properly.

b) Parents have the right to freely choose schools or other means necessary to educate their children in keeping with their convictions. Public authorities must ensure that public subsidies are so allocated that parents are truly free to exercise this right without incurring unjust burdens. Parents should not have to sustain, directly or indirectly, extra charges which would deny or unjustly limit the exercise of this freedom.

c) Parents have the right to ensure that their children are not compelled to attend classes which are not in agreement with their own moral and religious convictions. In particular, sex education is a basic right of the parents and must always be carried out under their close supervision, whether at home or in educational centers chosen and controlled by them.

d) The rights of parents are violated when a compulsory system of education is imposed by the State from which all religious formation is excluded.

e) The primary right of parents to educate their children must be upheld in all forms of collaboration between parents, teachers and school authorities, and particularly in forms of participation designed to give citizens a voice in the functioning of schools and in the formulation and implementation of educational policies.

f) The family has the right to expect that the means of social communication will be positive instruments for the building up of society, and will reinforce the fundamental values of the family. At the same time the family has the right to be adequately protected, especially with regard to its youngest members, from the negative effects and misuse of the mass media.


here is an excellent Parents Bill of Rights!:
