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..”
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!
Is Fact VERSUS Opinion taught in Ontario schools? YES!

Ben Levin has pleaded guilty to making child porn etc.
This has also come out! Incest etc etc!

“Dear colleagues, I am writing to provide an update on our sector’s agenda … I will be filling the ADM (assistant deputy minster) position previously held by George Zegarac … The division formerly headed by George Zegarac will be renamed as ‘Learning and Curriculum.’ It will have responsibilty for curriculum and for Special Education including Provincial Schools.”
Then on April 6, 2009, Levin penned a memo saying, “Today, the ministry released its new equity and inclusive education strategy paper … This provincewide strategy has been a priority for our Minister of Education Kathleen Wynne and me.”
On June 24, 2009, Levin wrote that the “Realizing the Promise of Diversity: Ontario’s Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy” sets out a “vision for an equitable and inclusive education system.” He wrote “the principles of equity and inclusive education should be embedded into all aspects of board and high school operations including program, employment, research, curriculum, resources, instructional and assessment practices.”
These memos end the confusion as to just what was his involvement was in the curriculum that expands the traditional two genders understanding to a more “equitable” and “inclusive” six.
In an interview with OISE’s winter 2009 newsletter, Levin said: “I was the deputy minister of education. In that role, I was the chief civil servant. I was responsible for the operation of the Ministry of Education and everything that they do; I was brought in to implement the new education policy.”
The precursor to this has already been implemented in OCSB etc! EIE (Equity and Inclusive Education). it was ALSO done by Levin!

PROTECT YOUR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please share!
Wynne/Levin are a BAD TREE
A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.: Matthew 8:17
PS: See what Catholic psychiatrists say about the curriculum:
The Story of Stuff indoctrinating youth
Given their track record on this, do we trust them in classes like S@x Ed or Religion?
at MTHS in the #OCSB:
At St Joseph’s High School. OCSB. Note the GAIA hypothesis too!
In RELIGION class at #WCDSB:
This is relevant given the current sex ed debate
Does the current General Secretary of the ACBO (former Director of Ed for WCDSB) agree with the following being taught to students in Catholic schools?
Also, many other teachers in other school boards may also be teaching similar material. WCDSB just happens to be the Board that publishes its lessons more than others! OCSB is locked up pretty tight!
Please google this: homosexual site:classnet.wcdsb.ca
This Religion teacher tries to say that Church MISINTERPRETS Scripture on Homosexuality!!
Roger Lawler is now the General Secretary of the ACBO (Conference of Bishops of Ontario). Previous to that he was Director of Education for the most noncatholic catholic school board in Ontario (#OCSB runs second according to experts I have talked with about a ranking system)
Wouldn’t a quote like the following raise HUGE alarm bells at the ACBO before hiring him?
Lawler spoke of legitimate differences of opinion on matters of “faith and morals”. “Faith and one’s understanding of faith is not static. As we learned and have been taught as a Post-Vatican II people, we are a Church with rich diversity,” he wrote. Adding: “Diversity also can bring about differences of opinion in areas like theology, faith, and morals. This is natural and healthy for a living, dynamic Church.”
Another incident at WCDSB:
Now Roger Lawler is hoodwinking organizations like the CWL on the new sex ed curriculum. Follow Archbishop Prendergast on this matter, not Mr Lawler!
Letter to members regarding new curriculum <– pdf of CWL-ACBO Lawler interaction IMPORTANT
The triumvirate of Lawler along with Pautler of ICE (Former Director of Education at Halton; also known for presenting a paper discussing “discerning a same sex orientation”) and Julian Hanlon (soon to leave as Director of Ed for the #OCSB to be Exec Director of the Canadian catholic School Trustees – CCSTA) needs to watched carefully.
I don’t know this triumvirate of men personally and I am sure they have good intentions. However, I will NOT be entrusting the souls of my children to Lawler/Pautler/Hanlon!

Update: Roger Lawler: Fan of Wynne, Trudeau (and Reg Cohn of TorStar) and GAY PRIDE
