Is the #OCSB “devastated” by Pope F. upholding #Catholic teaching against Birth Control?

Or will they just ignore him? After all, he is their favourite Pope since, well, the mythical Pope Joan. Here is another liberal that is “devastated” http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Blog/3635/cruxs_spirituality_columnist_is_devastated_the_pope_upholds_catholic_teaching.aspx

“The news that Pope Francis has strongly defended the Church’s ban on artificial birth control left me, in a word, devastated”

======================

When one sends a child to the OCSB, the OCSB gets $12000 more dollars to pay for things like free abortafacient Pills for staff.

Here is the OCSB stance on Birth Control: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/ottawa-catholic-school-board-defends-coverage-for-employees-contraception-a

In their reply to the ratepayer, they appear to have fundamental misunderstanding of the Pill. They think NFP is quaint thing for some Catholics, sort of like not eating meat on Fridays. In fact, the Pill against Natural Law, ie. it is wrong for all people, all the time. OCSB thinks they have moral obligation to provide free Birth Control to non-Catholic staff. In fact, they have moral obligation to NOT provide birth control to folks. As an analogy, if government OHIP stopped paying for abortions (it should, because abortion are “choice” and therefore “elective” surgery), would the OCSB Benefits Plan step in and pay for them for non-Catholic staff?

The point that OCSB Superintendent makes about doctor-patient privacy is totally bogus as they don’t seem worried about that at all when it comes to free Viagra for impotence! The following statement is the more bizarre, illogical statement I have read in a long time!

the fact that the current practice does allow Catholic employees to not submit or request coverage for any area that may be counter to their personal or religious views, while allowing others who do not share similar views to submit their claims as per current practice.”

What? The plan is great because it allows Catholics to NOT submit claims for birth control?

By the way, Superintendent Tom D’Amico made $182,000 in 2013 (which translates into annual pension of maybe $120,000/yr). This might make him a “Professional Catholic” –

Jessi/Jessica Tayor is a grad of St Paul’s U in Theology and “Ethics”

She is also VERY popular with CFOTAE. Apparently, being a having a VII inspired education means you go on to run abortion clinics.

CFOTAE: “Not bad for “under 25” and a credit to her Vatican II inspired Ontario Catholic education.”

Of course, the Religion Teachers in catholic schools in Ontario just LOVE CFOTAE and its speakers!

BREAKING NEWS: Ben Levin to plead guilty to child porn! Will #ocsb reject the Wynne/Levin Sex Ed program?

This will go under-reported so please share!

http://www.sunnewsnetwork.ca/sunnews/canada/archives/2015/01/20150116-205433.html

TORONTO – Dr. Benjamin Levin will plead guilty on March 3 to some of the child pornography-related charges against him, court heard Friday.Levin will plead guilty to some offences, but not all of the seven charges that were laid against the renowned educator.

He is alleged to have authored graphic child porn and counselled someone online on how to commit a sexual assault on a child. Levin has lectured around the world and has been an advisor to several high-ranking Liberals.

————–

Levin is the architect of the sex ed program and the EIE (equity and inclusive education). Major input was from Jer’s Vision, OPHEA, SIECCAN etc http://www.sieccan.org/

 

http://redlikeme.ca/?p=3440

http://www.torontosun.com/2013/07/17/ben-levin-letter-raises-questions

Today, the ministry released its new equity and inclusive education strategy paper, Realizing the Promise Of Diversity. . . This province-wide strategy has been a priority for our Minister of Education Kathleen Wynne and me,” Levin wrote to Ontario’s senior educators.

———–

From my other posts, we know that Wynne plans on forcing all boards to teach ONE curriculum on sex education. Will the Catholic school boards reject this, unlike when they fell like a deck of cards on Bill 13 GSAs? With pressure from OECTA etc, I expect the OCSB to meekly accept teaching the sex ed program.

There are MANY good reasons to reject the sex ed curriculum, but will the OCSB??

Will #OCSB Follow Pope Francis and Condemn Gay Marriage and Contraception?

We all know that the OCSB is a much bigger fan of Pope Francis than Pope Benedict. They love to quote him (sometimes our of context – eg. Chairman Ted Hurley’s use of “Who am I to judge?”) to their ends.

 

Will the support the Pope now? Will they publish these quotes? They seem pretty “judgmental”.

http://www.catholicnews.com/data/stories/cns/1500200.htm

Appealing to the traditional values of Filipino Catholic families, Pope Francis made one of his strongest calls as pope against movements to recognize same-sex unions as marriage.

“The family is also threatened by growing efforts on the part of some to redefine the very institution of marriage,” the pope said Jan. 16, hours after warning that Philippine society was “tempted by confusing presentations of sexuality, marriage and the family.”

“As you know, these realities are increasingly under attack from powerful forces which threaten to disfigure God’s plan for creation and betray the very values which have inspired and shaped all that is best in your culture,” he said.”

http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/paul-vi-was-right-to-warn-against-contraception-pope-francis-says-71589/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+catholicnewsagency%2Fdailynews+%28CNA+Daily+News%29&utm_term=daily+news

“I think of Blessed Paul VI,” he said. “In a moment of that challenge of the growth of populations, he had the strength to defend openness to life.”

In 1968, Pope Paul VI released the encyclical Humanae Vitae, which upheld Catholic teaching on sexuality and the immorality of artificial contraception, predicting the negative consequences that would result from a cultural acceptance of birth control.

“He knew the difficulties that families experience, and that’s why in his encyclical, he expressed compassion for particular cases. And he taught professors to be particularly compassionate with particular cases,” Pope Francis said.

“But he went further. He looked to the peoples beyond. He saw the lack and the problem that it could cause families in the future. Paul VI was courageous. He was a good pastor, and he warned his sheep about the wolves that were approaching, and from the heavens he blesses us today.”

Pope Francis’ comments come in the wake of Philippines president Benigno Aquino’s signing a highly controversial reproductive health bill in 2013 that drew strong protest from local bishops and members of the faith.

The legislation requires government-sanctioned sex education for adults, middle school and high school students, as well as a population control program that includes fully subsidized contraceptives under government health insurance. The nation’s bishops spoke out strongly against the measure.

Will the Genderbread Army be welcomed at the #OCSB ?

Before I begin this post on trans issues, it might be good to read the following as well as yesterday’s post on Mandatory Sex-Ed from Wynne/BenLevin.

The letter written by the mother references a lot of things that the OCSB subscribes to: OPHEA, Equity and Inclusive Education. In fact, an almost identical letter could be written by St George’s GSA Activist Mom, Ann Maloney:

The EIE (Equity and Inclusive Education) policies of the OCSB and OCDSB boards are VERY similar. Both are big fans of the OHRC (Ontario Human Rights Commission)

The OCSB has a bit of a history of supporting trans issues. See the trans sign up at All Saints:

As well, the OCSB bullying app transfers children to the Kids Help Line:

http://ocsb.ca/schools/tools/safe-and-inclusive-schools/ocsbconnect-ott-citizen-article

“The app will correspond with specific schools, Atkinson said. A phone or text message goes to a service centre, where an operator reviews the information and replies with “a limited set of agreed upon responses,” he said, such as asking questions to get more details, telling someone who’s thinking about harmful behaviour to call 911, and offering to patch the complainant through to the Kids Help Phone”

Of course the Kids Help Phone uses the Genderbread Model to “help” kids!

The BIG Questions:

So, will OCSB teachers be using the Genderbread Person as part of the new MANDATORY sex-ed curriculum this fall?

Will GSAs in High Schools and Elementary schools be using it?

Are some “progressive” teachers already using it?

Has the Board’s “Who am I to judge” and “Gay rights are human rights” (from the OHRC) given cover to all sorts of more things like Gender-bread models for OCSB elementary children?

#OCSB Sex Ed BAD and Getting Worse!

Before we get to the latest news, let’s look at where things are.

The following study looked at graduates from the OCSB and French Catholic Board in Ottawa as well as Ottawa public school graduates. It also surveyed Ottawa French Catholic teachers and Ottawa Public schools teachers. OCSB did not allow the study of their teachers (too embarrassing?)

2026-5396-1-PB   <– PDF of Sex Ed Study

Catholic graduates from OCSB and French Catholic reported earlier sexual intercourse age than the Public schools kids -almost 8 months EARLIER (16.7yrs for Catholics compared with 17.4 for Public school). So much for Theology of the Body! This, perhaps, jibes with the other post I did on the Cardus survey that showed worse results for Catholic grads on things like turning to God to find out what is right and wrong.

Also, most of the Catholic students talked about how they were instructed in subjects like condoms to stop STIs and SRH (“sexual and reproductive health”)

14 out of 15 French Catholic teachers said that talked about practical ways to get contraception and many of them talked about access to so-called “Emergency Contraception”

SRH

srh2

…. AND ABOUT TO GET MUCH WORSE!

Things are going to get EVEN worse next fall!!! There is almost no hope that the OCSB and other boards will stand up to the government on this given how they folded like a deck of cards on Bill 13 GSAs.

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/education-minister-catholic-schools-will-be-required-to-teach-new-sex-ed-pr

Education Minister Liz Sandals stated on TVO’s The Agenda yesterday that Catholic schools will not be able to opt out of the curriculum being forced upon Ontario’s schools by lesbian Premier, Kathleen Wynne.

“There is one curriculum document, and it’s our expectation that all four systems [English and French Catholic, English and French public] will be using the same curriculum document,” she said.

Sandals said 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.

If the curriculum is anything like its forerunner, shelved in 2010 after parental backlash, it will likely contain items contrary to Catholic sexual and moral teaching, such as approval of masturbation, anal and oral sex, homosexuality, and contraception.

#ocsb Sacred Heart Stittsville promoting camp run by gay activists

Last May (2014), Sacred Heart had the following in their daily announcements. I suspect it will be in again this spring to lure students to Camp Micah

CAMP MICAH
: is a one
week leadership camp for social
justice and peace held every August near beautiful
Bancroft, Ontario. Founded in 2009, the camp is led by a
staff of young adults, teachers, ministers, school chaplains
and peace educators with many years of experience
working with youth and developing leadership programs.
Coming from different Christian traditions (including
Catholic, Mennonite and United Church), the Camp staff
shares a common passion for living out the call to
leadership for peace and social justice. Check out
www.campmicah.ca for more information including a YouTube video

Of course CARFLEO is a big fan of Camp Micah too:

Looks like Sacred Heart  may have been advertising the camp for a few years. Here is an article by John Curry (who also happens to be an OCSB trustee) about a girl from Sacred Heart in 2011 going to Camp Micah

The name Catherine Cavanagh popped up in a previous post of mine for her hard-core anti-Israel teaching to children in Brockville Catholic high school. In her script, there is not even a mention of the 800,000 Jews expelled from Arab lands.

and she says that in 1967 the Israelis INITIATED the war!!
