Michael Coren stating this FACTS in 2012 before he apostasized:
Some background first. In Ontario, as well as most of Canada, state-funded Catholic education is generally about as Catholic as an Orange Lodge meeting in East Belfast. Non-Catholics assume that eager little Papists are indoctrinated into the Roman faith, but if only this was the case. The vast majority of Catholic teachers — while often decent and dedicated — are non-practising and even anti-Church.
They are divorced, gay, abort and use contraceptives, live together, never attend mass, reject Catholic teaching, are indifferent or even hostile to the religion they are supposed to be part of.
HERE IS BUT ONE EXAMPLE: taken from public facebook posts.
Michelle Blais (head of #OECTA LGBTQ provincial group) and partner Caroline Schaillee
Anyone heard of Southern Ontario Lesbian Educators (SOLE)?? Some sort of lesbian teacher dating club?
“20th anniversary. Not “married” but happily together in all the ways that count”
Steve Paikin is VERY knowledgeable. He is quite neutral but has ties to Liberals via his son Zach.
Is this a trial balloon?
OECTA would be furious, but ETFO and OSSTF would be 110% behind
OECTA is trying the “school choice” card, but we suspect that they only support where parents only have a choice of 4 systems. Apparently, 1-3 systems are bad and 5-20 systems are bad. FOUR is the perfect number for OECTA. We wonder why?
Polls show 51-38% would support the closure of schools.
How else can Wynne win?? Things like “reduced” Hydro and $15 minimum wage have not moved her up in the polls.
The MSM media will be preparing the ground from now until the election with “polls”, columns, editorials etc
The premier acknowledged there are some in the province who want the government to do away with the Catholic system.
“That’s not what we’re going to do. It’s not what I believe should be done,” said Wynne, noting the current configuration is a reflection of Ontario’s history. “We can have that debate another day.”
Is another day the 2018 Election???
This blog supports tax credits(with NO strings attached) to give true choice to parents to give children authentic truly CATHOLIC education!
PDF of Church Teachings on Education:
Even rural “catholic” boards are worried.. apathy in staff, low numbers of practising Catholics, practising teachers who don’t witness, etc
As you can see from pic at bottom, even rural OECTA groups have gone all in with the LGBTQ agenda. It is not just OECTA HQ in downtown Toronto with the wild LGBTQSS2SETC agenda
Faithful Catholic families are withdrawing their children from heretical religion classes (just need to change MPAC tax designation, despite what Pat Daly from OCSTA says)
PDF: What We Value About Catholic Schools
Former OECTA President Jimmy Ryan continues the LGBTQ push (OECTA marched in Gay Pride on Sunday).. now attacking the Knights for donating to organizations that believe the Church’s teachings on sexuality.
Horror of horrors, the Knights donate to EWTN and the NCBC National Catholic Bioethics Centre!!
The knights have to stop coddling all these dissenting teachers!! KofC needs to protect our children from OECTA run schools!
Please note that the National “Catholic” Reporter has been banned for many years under Canon 216 from using the name “Catholic”. They ignore their local Bishop’s order.
As well, New Ways Ministry is also an organization not allowed to do “Gay ministry”
Cardinal George’s statement had criticized the organization for being misleading.“No one should be misled by the claim that New Ways Ministry provides an authentic interpretation of Catholic teaching and an authentic Catholic pastoral practice,” the cardinal said. “Their claim to be Catholic only confuses the faithful regarding the authentic teaching and ministry of the Church with respect to persons with a homosexual inclination.”
OECTA always likes to portray their LGBT work to be “anti-bullying”
In a December 22 story on the issue by the Toronto Sun, OECTA president James Ryan defended their support of EGALE and of GSAs. “I don’t actually see the contradiction,” said Ryan. “OECTA decided to join EGALE because both OECTA and EGALE are committed to fighting any type of bullying.” He added: “Certainly the Catholic Church is against bullying.”
But now the TRUTH comes out!! It is to produce LGBT material like “Genderbread Person”. This is demonic as per Catholic teaching. Pope Francis has been forceful on this issue. Meanwhile OECTA partnered to bring Genderbread to our children!!
What kind of dad brings a 9 and 8 yo to Pride? Look at the signs on businesses, Also, nude men etc… What is Justin grooming them for?
Search instagram for pride toronto for photos of the real parade that occurred, not the whitewashed MSM photos
Former OECTA PREZ Ryan appears to have no problem to such a parade with nude men etc. He says reading this blog is worse for children
What kind of fool wears rainbow socks to a Catholic mass in Montreal (at 350anniversary) then Eid socks to a supposedly Christian service MCC. He attends mass only a few times per year. It is a mortal sin to miss Sunday mass
Justin also seems oblivious to the Quran teaches about killing homosexuals. Eid mubarak became Pride Mubarak
Trudeau also wished the crowd a happy “Pride Mubarak,” a play on words referring to the end-of-Ramadan celebrations happening in the Muslim community Sunday — celebrations Trudeau honoured with a pair of brightly coloured socks.
