The Letter That Should Have Been Written

So in the next week or so, Bill 13 will become law.  Of course, there will be legal and constitutional appeals and it will be caught up in the courts for years to come.

But in the mean time, when the socialists pass the law, it will be the law.  And the Catholic School Boards and School principals will have no choice but to permit these GSAs because it is, after all, the law.  And our bishops, unlike the American ones, are hardly going to call for civil disobedience. That would be impolite.  And yet, even if they did, who would join up for the Crusade? The teachers, the trustees, the unions?!  Bahahahahaha.  Let’s get serious.

And as for appeals of the law, they are just that: appeals.  They are not the law.  The Bishops’ lawyers will inevitably ask for an injunction against the law.  I’m not sure how this whole thing is going to play out. I’m no lawyer, but I have a pretty good idea of what will happen in the interim.

The Gay Agenda already has some Judas “Catholic” school or schools ready to go with their GSAs.  As soon as the the legislation passes, they will pounce, and with their partners in the School Boards, they will create the GSAs.  It’s the law, after all.  And then it’s not even about normalization of these clubs in these Schools – as some of you who are mildly naive might think.  No. 

What we are dealing with here is about institutionalization of bullying against conscientious objectors who oppose the Gay agenda. Yes, that’s right, folks – the opposite of what this legislation claims (“bullying”) is so very wrong. Don’t kid yourself, folks, that’s exactly what this is about. And if you don’t think so, you’re as dimwitted as the nearest half-wit Church bureaucrat who thinks negotiation with Pope Dalton is clearly, CLEARLY!, the only way to save our Catholic education system! 

“Soft in the head”, as we use to say in the playground.

What are Cardinal Collins and the rest of the bishops going to do about it?  Come and rip off the GSA signs which will now be proudly bolted to the door frame?  I seriously doubt it.  This isn’t Poland and the Bishops of Ontario are not Karol Wojtyla or Cardinal Wyszynski.

The proverbial horse has left the barn – at least the Catholic-in-name-only barn. 

Game. Set. Match.

Pope Dalton I, Never Corrected, Never Disciplined

So, looking back now, what can we say about the quiet diplomacy of our bishops with Pope Dalton I and his regime?  Well, it was hopelessly naive, because, for one thing, we can hardly believe that we are dealing with people of goodwill, especially considering the subject of this controversy and, secondly, considering the track record of these pro-abort moral heretics, the fix was in from the beginning as anyone with a modicum of street smarts will tell you. 

 

But the bishops persisted in continuing this fruitless negotiation which was doomed from the beginning.  Hopefully, if anything else, it has hopefully taught them a lesson that they won’t soon forget:  this is not aggiornamento and this is not the 1960s.  Ontario is not Shangrala, and Dalton McGunity is no Catholic, although he doesn’t really know it because – ahem – no bishop would have cared enough about his eternal fate to point that out to him and to us.  Moreover, I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever that his Liberal holiness will be in line on Sunday for Communion, and I have no doubt whatsoever that absolutely no bishop in the province would ever dream of denying him his Eucharistic “rights”.

So, now, where do Catholic schools stand?  No where.  Why? Because the bishops will pin their hopes in the courts while the GSAs are setup anyway, in the mean time.  This is not the approach we should be taking – or should have taken. Here is the letter that Cardinal Collins should have written:

My dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

As you may have heard through various media reports, Premier Dalton McGuinty has decided to ignore my rejection of his proposed anti-bullying measures that he wishes to impose on Catholic Schools through a political gay agenda known as “Gay-Straight Alliances”.  In so doing, Mr. McGuinty’s regime has encroached on religious liberty in general and my authority in Catholic schools in particular, effectively trying to change Catholic moral teaching in a domain which is not the State’s competence or jurisdiction.

I have informed Mr. McGuinty that once this Bill passes into law in Ontario, all Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Toronto will no longer be permitted to use the name “Catholic”.  All sacraments and sacramental formation programs will end and no priest will be able to minister in these schools without my direct authorization.  The attorneys for the Archdiocese of Toronto will then begin negotiations with Government officials on the question of school property division and compensation to the Archdiocese of Toronto. 

The Archdiocese of Toronto has already formed a board of advisors to begin a new Catholic school system under my direct supervision and authority.  I have instructed my treasurer to formulate a budget with proposed tuition rates and other financial matters related to a new school board.  Archdiocesan resources which were previously devoted to “social justice” will end and be directed towards the education of our children.  There will also be a new intensive program launched for teachers who have the privilege of teaching Catholic students.  I will personally interview each teacher and each teacher will be accountable to me and to me alone.

The Archdiocese of Toronto has also engaged with other faith groups to form a Committee devoted to promote the rights of parents as first educators and lobby the government to provide a financial recognition of their sacrifices to educate their children, according to their own values.  The Catholic Church teaches that parents and not the State are the primary educators of children.  As such, the government is subservient to parents and families – not the other way around. 

I have also discussed the Catholic Faith with Mr. McGuinty and warned him that he has put his eternal salvation in grave peril by advocating for the destruction of innocent human life through abortion and his recent promotion of the gay political agenda.  I have indicated to Mr. McGuinty that he has placed himself outside of the Church’s Faith and have asked him kindly to refrain from receiving any of the Sacraments within the Archdiocese of Toronto, until he becomes honest with himself and with his Faith.

I hope this provides some clarity to the recent issues raised concerning Catholic education.  I have no doubt that these measures may cause some discomfort and anxiety.  But, honestly, we all have to grow up some time and realize that being Catholic means something.  It also means that, as your Archbishop, I want you all to make no mistake that the Catholic Faith in this Archdiocese begins and ends with me, not the State, not Mr. McGuinty, or the Agendas which are hostile to the Catholic Church.  The sooner you all learn this simple teaching, and the sooner that I, myself, recognize it, is the sooner we will all have a much more harmonious and less confusing time with one another.

Yours truly in Christ,

  1. Once again, as a Yankee I have no dog in this fight. But I am sure there are greater issues than what they are going to call this club and what they are going to do. People are starving in Canada as well as in the US, both countries are sending young women and men out to be killed in Afghanistan. Your Grace, keep away from these sex issues and start cramping down on teachers who smoke.

  2. My Fellow Canadian citizens be careful what you allow to be legalized, because it starts to be imposed on innocent impressionable schoolchildren as a human right and social justice, from Kindergarten through University by Government decree and Court enforcement.

    In its December 20,2005 decision a few days before Christmas, The Supreme Court of Canada legalized a type of business activity previously restricted by Canadian Law, overturning two previous Court of Appeal decisions that had ruled group-sex clubs qualified as bawdy houses violating community decency standards and were therefore illegal.

    Now under Canadian Parliamentary and Supreme Court Law consenting 14 year old’s are considered consenting adults as a Human Right ,and Social Justice. The Courts controversial decision has made Canada a legal sex trafficking playground for pedophiles, and every kind of sexual predator

    Supreme Court Of Canada Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin was joined by Justices Major, Binnie, Deschamps, Fish, Abella and Charron in the sex-club decision.
    Dissenting Justices Michael Bastarache, and Louis LeBel said the high court’s ruling,” strips of all relevance the social values that the Canadian community as a whole believes should be protected,” according to the Globe and Mail newspaper.

    Bill C313 to raise the age of sex consent was defeated 167 to 99 on September 28,2005. 90 FEDERAL Conservatives voted to raise the age of sex consent, and of the rest of the POLITICAL PARTIES IN CANADA PUT TOGETHER ONLY 9 MEMBERS VOTED TO RAISE THE AGE OF SEX CONSENT. How our MP’s voted was on the website http://www.parl.gc.ca

    Social Conservatives have to unite and the liberal-minded change their minds, and join us as some already have by looking at the consequences of their choices on Canadian society.
    From 2005 to 2008 Concerned Parents and Citizens united politically to force Parliament in 2008 to pass a Bill into Canadian Law raising the age of sex consent in Canada, thus ending this rotten Parliamentary legislation and Canadian Supreme Court Law. This is Democracy in action. We published the names of The Politicians and Supreme Court Of Canada Justices who Legalized this perversion as a Canadian Human Right and Social Justice, and then asked Canadian Citizens if this is the kind of Democratic Canada they wanted? Between 2005 to 2008 Concerned Canadian Citizens from all faiths and agnostics united politically to defeat rotten Legislation and Supreme Court Of Canada Law. If you like we can politically unite and do it again? Perverting innocent impressionable Canadian or American schoolchildren from Kindergarten through University as a human right and social justice is diabolical.

  3. Cardinal Collins, like the vast majority of bishops in Canada, is too severely compromised to take on the evil encroaching on his turf. His record in this regard is pathetic. He is blind to what is happening around him. Witness the following press release from 2007. What has changed? Not the Cardinal. The forces of evil have rallied due to his predictable inaction and have been emboldened now to assail the very religious liberty of Canada.

    Vote Life, Canada! Calls on Toronto Archbishop to Redress Scandal Surrounding Governor Schwarzenegger’s Stem Cell Deal with Ontario Premier McGuinty

    Contact: Eric Alcock, President, Vote Life, Canada! 403-253-1577
     
    Calgary, AB, June 4, 2007/Christian Newswire—“The scandal caused in Canada and the US by so-called ‘devout’ Catholic politicians who defy the true Catholic faith reached new depths of disgrace last week,” says Eric Alcock, President of Vote Life, Canada!

    Even as Governor Schwarzenegger met with Premier McGuinty to contract a deal which underwrites $30 million in public funds for the willful destruction of embryonic human beings, both politicians brazenly affirmed a staunch Catholic faith.

    Catholic teaching condemns embryonic stem cell research (ESCR) as a crime against the dignity of embryonic human beings since they have a right to the same respect as the child already born. Furthermore, Alcock noted, “ESCR is a worse crime than abortion since no mother sets out from the beginning to abort her child whereas ESCR always envisions the purposeful, willful destruction of human life at the embryonic stage.”

    “Canada has descended a path of barbarism and secularism, even sponsoring the monstrous evil of abortion, thanks to a succession of ‘devout’ Catholic politicians and Prime Ministers,” says Alcock. “Their testimony confirms the spiritual apathy and neglect of Canada’s Bishops, practically all of whom continue the cowardly policy of leaving the defense of innocent Unborns to a persecuted minority of ‘fundamentalist’ pro-lifers.”

    Ironically, Alcock disclosed that in Toronto on the same day of Schwarzenegger’s and McGuinty’s scandalizing actions, Toronto’s Archbishop Collins was delivering a speech entitled The Contribution of Religion to Society. One point the Archbishop made was that religion contributes to the common good of society by bringing to bear on current social issues the insights arising from religion’s ancient heritage of wisdom.

    Alcock also pointed to an interview in December past when Archbishop Collins inferred that he would not rule out excommunication for politicians who defied Church teaching. Father Raymond J. de Souza judged in an article in the National Post that “the sheer size of Toronto and its status as the nation’s media capital make the Archbishop the sine qua non of the Church’s presence in Canadian public life.”

    Therefore, for the sake of Canada’s Unborn, Vote Life, Canada! calls on Archbishop Collins to reverse the trend of deadly silence among the Bishops, to immediately and publicly address this scandal through reaffirming Church teaching on ESCR and to initiate Church Canon law discipline for all professing Catholics who refuse to make their consciences correct with Magisterial teaching, starting with Premier Dalton McGuinty.
