Former #Catholicteachers #OECTA Prez doubles down to support immoral teachers’ “private lives”

He called Teachers clauses “fascist” and should be illegal.

And was unwilling to say that a lesbian OECTA teacher in a “gay marriage” could tweet about being being proud of her 3rd abortion and speaking about it proudly at a “pro-choice” rally, should face ANY employment ramifications!!

As long as teachers don’t cross the path of Pope Wynne and Bishop Mitzie Hunter and stay clean with the “progressive” Ontario College of Teachers (OCT), everything is FIIIINNE!

This is the thinking of members of Ontario English Carnal Teachers union.





NARAL Abortion League and #OECTA together against Morality Clauses

OECTA is firmly against any morality clauses for teachers. If a teacher want to wear a “Proud of my abortion” shirt and post it on her facebook, there is no problem according to OECTA. Same with same-sex marriage, IVF, etc etc

NARAL also has the same view! They are pushing a bill in California to stop Catholic teacher morality clauses.


There is a LONG history of teaching that a teacher’s personal life DOES matter!!


The integration of religious truth and values with the rest of life is brought about in the Catholic school not only by its unique curriculum, but, more important, by the presence of teachers who express an integrated approach to learning and living in their private and professional lives.



Example Teacher morality clause here. They are called what they are “Teacher-Minister”. Chaplaincy leaders in Ontario already use the “clergy” tax rebates. But OECTA is opposed to considering teachers in any sort of role like that would limit their lifestyle choices!!


Another one:

Teacher-Minister agrees to comply with all policies, handbooks, rules and regulations of the School and of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. Teacher-Minister also agrees to exemplify Catholic principles in a manner consistent with Teacher-Minister’s relationship with the Catholic Church and to refrain from any conduct or lifestyle which would reflect discredit on or cause scandal to the School or be in contradiction to Catholic social doctrine or morals.  While the School does not mean to suggest that Teacher-Minister is involved in such conduct or lifestyle, by way of example, such conduct or lifestyle that is in contradiction to Catholic social doctrine or morals includes, but is not limited to: cohabitation outside marriage; sexual activity out of wedlock; same-sex sexual activity; use of abortion; use of a surrogate mother; use of in vitro fertilization or artificial insemination; advocacy (defined as presenting or promoting as acceptable) for conduct, lifestyle, positions, policies, programs, causes or movements in contradiction to Catholic social doctrine or morals; and/or flagrant deceit or dishonesty.  Teacher-Minister further agrees to teach and act consistently in accordance with the mission statement of the School and to strive to aid in the formation of students by personal witness so far as conscience allows to the stated philosophy and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church (these can be found in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, which is incorporated herein by reference).

Yet another reason why “Catholic” education in Ontario is so much worse than in the USA!!!

CTF conference pushes govt edctn monopoly. #oecta too! #catholicteachers

VATICAN: whenever the State lays claim to an educational monopoly, it oversteps its rights and offends justice…


Meanwhile, Canadian teachers have this forum:




The Catholic church SUPPORTS school choice, private schools, etc etc!!

In 1987, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith articulately communicated that “whenever the State lays claim to an educational monopoly, it oversteps its rights and offends justice… The State cannot without injustice merely tolerate so-called private schools. Such schools render a public service and therefore have a right to financial assistance.”



The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches, “Parents have the right to choose a school for them which corresponds to their own personal convictions. This right is fundamental,” and “public authorities have the duty of guaranteeing this parental right and ensuring concrete conditions for its exercise” (CCC #2229).   Additionally, the Code of Canon Laws emphasizes, “The Christian faithful have the right to a Christian education by which they are to be instructed properly to strive for the maturity of the human person and at the same time to know and live the mystery of salvation” (No. 217).


Former #OECTA Prez supports EGALE genderbread, believes CCCB Bishops wrong . @archtoronto @cccb_cecc







No Church teaching on trans? Wow





CCCB Bishops:






#oecta pushed C16 trans bill which church opposes! #catholicteachers @archtoronto

OECTA are big behind C-16 Trans bill. They push Genderbread person etc. Meanwhile the actual Holy Catholic Church opposes!!

OECTA Bill C-16



While the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops supports Bill C-16’s intention to protect Canadians from harm, some of the principles behind the legislation – even if widely accepted in our society – cannot be endorsed by Catholics. The most serious of these is the claim that gender is separable from biological sexuality and is to be determined by the individual. This central tenet of contemporary gender theory is not in accord with natural law or Christian revelation and has therefore been explicitly rejected by Pope Francis and by Pope Benedict XVI.

According to Genesis, we are created male and female, in the image of God (Genesis 1:26, 27). Each of us – man or woman – is challenged to fulfill our human vocation in a way that is individually unique yet true to what we have been created to be. In the words of the Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2332 and 2333, each man and woman “should acknowledge and accept” his or her biological sexual identity, including “physical, moral, and spiritual difference and complementarity,” which “affects all aspects of the human person in the unity of his body and soul.” This identity “especially concerns affectivity, the capacity to love and to procreate, and in a more general way the aptitude for forming bonds of communion with others.”











Does #OECTA believe in Chrislam? #catholicteachers

OECTA appears to believe that children can be Catholic and muslim at the same time!!

Is Jesus God or is he simply a muslim prophet?

Is God a trinity or not?

Is Mary is the Mother of God or not?

Was Jesuscrucified and rose from the dead?



OECTA paid for this blog post and tweeted it:




Blog quote:

Once we started the discussion of having kids together the conversation quickly panned to religion and in turn education. As two very stubborn people we did have some back and forth. I wanted them raised Catholic, he wanted them raised Muslim, and then we realized that we can raise them with both religions taking equal importance. We didn’t have to choose one or the other, one of us did not have to lose out, and the kids in the end would win.

Former #oecta Prez believes that divorce/remarriage is NOT adultery . #catholicteachers

Apparently, Jesus was talking about the lack of alimony in Mark Chapter 10.





Apparently, jim wants to defend Henry VIII, Jim’s friend Jack Layton, and all the divorced and remarried (without a decree of nullity) “Catholic” teachers out there.
