OECTA AGM Results- new LGBTQ Working Group w/ 50% self-identified LGBTQ Catholic Teachers

First, other news first:

Expect a strike or work-to-rule in #OCSB schools this fall.




The New President of OECTA (ie. OE*TA) is now a non-Catholic. Not as in non-practising or heretical, but not even Catholic in any way. She is big into social justice and women’s rights

Also, this:

OECTA passed resolution at AGM to form LGBTQ working group composed of at least 50% self-identified LGBTQ Catholic Teachers.





The opening and closing prayers were not done by a priest. Instead they were Aboriginal. No idea whether they were Catholic-compatible or called out to spirits. (Aboriginal Prayers can certainly sometimes be Catholic – just like Celtic- inspired prayers to the Trinity)

Indoctrination of Children into LGBTQ Agenda and St Jerome’s University

Just like St Paul’s university in Ottawa helps ruin the OCSB, St Jerome’s spreads heresy to the teachers  at WCDSB…

We read about Canadian gay activist S. Bear Bergman in a piece appearing on Huffington Post a week ago tellingly titled ‘I Have Come to Indoctrinate Your Children Into My LGBTQ Agenda (And I’m Not a Bit Sorry)



Now we see he is speaking next month at St jerome’s Sexuality, Marriage and Family (SMF) Symposium:

The SMF Department is BIZARRE given that it’s a Catholic university:

1979 Bob Dylan: “When you gonna wake up?” applicable to Ontario 2015!

This album helped me come to Christ many years ago. I was listening to it today and was struck by the number of things that are relevant to this month in Ontario

Some lyrics:
Counterfeit philosophies have polluted all of your thoughts
Karl Marx has got ya by the throat… (OECTA and Socialism etc etc)
You got innocent men in jail, your insane asylums are filled (Prolifer Mary Wagner in Jail)
You got unrighteous doctors dealing drugs that’ll never cure your ills   (CPSO No conscience rights and Supreme Court on Euthanasia)
…pornography in the schools (new sex ed curriculum)

Do you ever wonder just what God requires?
You think He’s just an errand boy to satisfy your wandering desires

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain?

There’s a Man up on a cross and He’s been crucified
Do you have any idea why or for who He died?

When you gonna wake up, when you gonna wake up
When you gonna wake up and strengthen the things that remain?

Comparing ACBO/ICE responses to Sex Ed in 2010 and 2015

ACBO= Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario

ICE = Institute for Catholic Education

In my recent posting about ACBO/ICE I wrote about the numerous problems with “Fully Alive” that ICE has been pushing for the last 20 yrs.




This is also a great recent article criticizing the Fully Alive:


Fully Alive has horrible objective results. In another post, I quoted a UO study showing that Ottawa Catholic students have intercourse on average 8 months before Public School counterparts


Even with ICE being bad for our children, only 4 years ago, they were willing to stand up to the govt and say NO to gay marriage being taught in Grade 3. They planned to teach it in Grade 7/8 in 2010.


2010: The Globe and Mail has reported that Catholic officials were developing their own sex-ed program that deviates significantly from the provincial one. The Institute for Catholic Education had informed bureaucrats in the Education Ministry that they were not prepared to introduce children as early as Grade 3 to such topics as homosexuality, Sister Joan Cronin, the institute’s executive director, said in an interview earlier this week.

The institute was working with ministry officials to tailor the province’s now-shelved sex-ed curriculum to separate schools, Sister Joan said. It had completed a first draft for Grade 1 to Grade 7, containing revisions to its long-standing family life program known as Fully Alive.

Mr. McGuinty told reporters Wednesday that this was news to him and said all schools in Ontario that are publicly funded must follow the provincial curriculum.

“God love Sister Joan,” he said. “I don’t distinguish between two school systems when it comes to our curriculum. We have a single curriculum when it comes to mathematics, when it comes to history, when it comes to world studies and when it comes to sex education.”

The now shelved sex-ed curriculum would have introduced the topic of same-sex marriage to Grade 3 students and a mention of anal intercourse in Grade 7. Sister Joan said the Catholic version of the curriculum would not have taught children in separate schools about gender identity until Grade 7.


Now, only 4 years later, ICE (now under Pautler) is taking $$ from Wynne to write a little commentary (“social justice” and “dignity of the person”) around the GenderBending Wynne/BenLevin sex ed. However, they are going to teach the official government curriculum (ie gender identity and gay “marriage” to 8 year old children!). Also, they have offered up our children to Bill 13 GSAs and Equity and inclusive Education (EIE) over the last 5 years.

The ACBO, now under the leadership of Liberal Party partisan Roger Lawler is also 100% behind the government curriculum. in 2015, Cardinal Collins now says: While Catholic schools have a responsibility to follow the curriculum set out by the Ministry of Education..”

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/national/ontario-offered-funding-to-help-catholic-schools-develop-their-own-sex-ed-course/article1210904/ 2010

The ACBO/ICE statements in 2010 and 2015 are so very different on the SAME curriculum! It must be confusing for Archbishop Prendergast who harshly criticized the curriculum in both 2010 and 2015 – CONSISTENCY!

In 2010, there was talk about “denominational rights” and making major changes to the curriculum between the public and public catholic systems (eg. things introduced 4 to 5 grades later). In 2015, there is submission and capitulation. 

IDENTICAL curriculum from 2010 to 2015: http://torontocatholicwitness.blogspot.ca/2015/03/the-ontario-2015-sex-ed-program-copy.html


How will this new curriculum impact what is taught in Catholic schools?

2015: Liz Sandals: The curriculum is the same in public schools and Catholic schools—this is the Ontario curriculum. In the case of the Catholic schools, they also do a lot of curriculum development through an organization called ICE, which is the Institute for Catholic Education, and that’s the Catholic teachers, the Catholic principals, the Catholic directors—it’s all the stakeholders in the Catholic education system. The Bishops are represented there too. So we work with ICE on the development of their curriculum. They will make some components of the curriculum part of their family life course.

In terms of (what) your parents would want to know, the Catholic trustees, the Catholic teachers, the Catholic principals, the Catholic directors have all been quite supportive of the curriculum.


Liz Sandals has also said this:

 2015: ” that while the Catholic school system will be able to provide “commentary” on the government-mandated sex-ed through its own family life program, it won’t be allowed to change anything and must “deliver” the sex-ed as written.”


Even though the ACBO and ICE have capitulated, please stand firm for your children!! Do what is best for them! Protect their souls!
