In a statement by the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario dated January 14, but released today on the ACBO website, the Bishops sidestep the matter of the existing Halton policy and focus on the GSAs saying that anti-bullying programs are supported by the bishops for all those experiencing bullying but those programs should be consistent with the Catholic fatih.
The statement said:
The debate surrounding Gay/Straight Alliances (GSAs) in Catholic high schools is being complicated by the fact that people are not distinguishing between an objective and a strategy. GSAs are a strategy that some people propose to achieve an objective with which the Bishops of Ontario are in agreement: that all students in schools feel safe and respected. Our objective is that each student be treated with dignity, for each is a child of God. It is not right or fair to suggest that one particular strategy is the only way to achieve a given goal. We seek to achieve the goal of a safe and loving environment for all students in a way that is in harmony with our faith.
Like I said in my earlier post about their response:
Milksop response. Milksop results. Just putn’ their time in ’till retirement. Sending off the obligatory directive. Making the customary objection. Framing it in such a merely academic way. Mark my words. They’ve issued their communiqué. There won’t be any action taken against the School Board. Everything’s back on track with the Gay Agenda.
It amazes me how these bishops think that their milk-toast response actually has no consequences to them or their office. They are counting on us having the useful idiot syndrome, again, like with Development & Peace. “Everything’s OK. Just a small adjustment required”
Hey bishop! If you can’t do the job of protecting Catholic education, GET OUT OF DODGE AND LET SOME REAL MEN DO IT.
Just what self-respecting father would trust these men with protecting their children’s spiritual and emotional equilibrium? They’re so stoned on social justice that the thick haze is preventing them from seeing the ravenous wolves inside their own house. They’re like ecclesiastical Teletubbies who refuse to recognize the Sodom and Gomorrah that they have helped usher in decades ago.
That’s why in my house, sadly, I’ve become bishop in so many areas….because we have no chief pastors. Just pseudo-pious men in pious collars.
