The Totalitarian Itch

July 13, 2009 ( – In what some critics of the embattled Canadian human rights commissions say could be the most intrusive human rights case in Canada thus far, the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC) has accepted the complaint of a homosexual man who was dismissed by the Bishop of Peterborough as an altar server. While the bishop has refused to publicly comment on the matter, the complainant in the case says that the bishop asked him and his same-sex partner not to serve on the altar so as to avoid public scandal…. Corcoran is seeking monetary damages of up to $25,000 from the bishop and $20,000 each from the 12 parishioners.  But his primary interest is in restitution of a non-financial nature, he says. He states in his complaint that he wants the $20,000 from each of the parishioners to be allocated “towards a charity of my choosing.”  And the $25,000 from the diocese will be used to cover his legal expenses; but, he told LSN, he will be returning it through parish contributions.He has also requested six other “remedies.”  First, he indicates that he “would like the group of 12 parishioners to be held accountable for their un-Christian actions, in front of their peers in a public forum, by the Bishop or the Bishop’s superior.”  Second, he wants the Bishop to preach at his parish “on the consequences of practicing discrimination and the slanderous spreading of rumours, hate and innuendo.”Third, he wants to be restored as an altar server, and fourth, for the bishop to apologize for having removed him.  Fifth, he wants the bishop to write an article for the diocesan newspaper “on the rights of persons with same sex attractions to practice their faith within the Catholic Church without fear of threats, recrimination or discrimination.”  And finally, sixth, he wants the diocese to develop policies “that support the human rights of all people within the church.” (Source)

I am not sure on what basis the OHRC is accepting this complaint.  It does not fall within their jurisdiction at all. There was no employment contract or business contract involved.  This was purely a voluntary association and therefore falls outside of the OHRC’s jurisdiction. Not surprisingly however, when you’ve got the totalitarian itch like Canada’s HRCs do, you just need to scratch in places that are supposed to be forbidden to you.

The Bishop is making a mistake in attending the preliminary mediation session.  First of all, he is conceding too much to the thugs at the HRC.  What business does the government have in a dispute over a doctrinal and liturgy matters?  They have no mandate or authority to adjudicate or even moderate such a dispute.  The bishop is simply not going to accept the star chamberlain’s judgement against the Church, so why even bother acknowledging its role in the first place?

If Corcoran will not accept to meet the bishop face to face and if he does meet with him and there is still no resolution, then that’s the way the rainbow cookie crumbles.  The bishop is not mandated to go through mediation, but he does have to show up to the Tribunal under the force of the law. If I were the bishop, I’d give them the old Italian salute and tell them I’ll wait for the Star Chamber where all the media can be present to see the Religious Inquisition unfold.

I’m not sure when people are going to clue in to what’s happening to Canada. We are becoming a Gay Stasi State.  The bishops still have not clued in; that much is for certain.  But that’s going to change very quickly when they finally figure out that the cumbaya moral theology they’ve been teaching us these past 40 years, and their refusal to assent to Humanae Vitae and retract the Winnipeg Statement is going to have grave consequences for all of us.  The Gay Sex Parade is going to roll right down the center aisle of the Church in this country because the bishops let the Snake into the Garden back on September 27, 1968. 

Contraception’s a bitch, eh?

April 9, 2005.  Parliament Hill.  That’s when I told Catholics and all Canadians what would happen if we let marriage fall.  Schools are now long gone. Churches are next. And after that? Read on….

…My fellow Canadians, at this critical moment in our history when our country is on the brink of moral collapse, all of us are faced with the central question: Shall we defend marriage or shall we retreat? If we retreat to buy a little time, what will become of our freedoms when our opponents seek to dictate what is taught in our schools, our churches, and even our homes? And what will be left for our children and their posterity? What will become of their freedoms? Of their divine right to practice their faith and enjoy their civil liberties? Will we lie to ourselves today and say it won’t impact us because we fear the sacrifices that come with it?…(Source)

  1. This is not about discrimination but common sense and scientific facts.

    According to the Health Canada HIV and AIDS in Canada Surveillance Report for April 2006 on page 60, we read that eighty-five percent of AIDS in Canada is in MALES WHO HAVE SEX WITH MALES!
    Not healthy is it?

    ” Gay bowel syndrome, ” describes a very well documented collection of bowel diseases that lead to a mechanical dysfunction of the lower bowel tract. However unknown to the Public because of a near total pro-homosexual, university, court, government and media blackout, they include amebiasis, giardiasis, salmonellosis, shigellosis, hepatitis a and b, tuberculosis, sypilis. These are “ENDemic” to the homosexual population.
    Not healthy or normal is it?

    Why are our universities, textbooks, courts, news media and governments imposing this lifestyle on everyone as healthy and a normal alternative, even in spite of the overwhelming scientific proof of the health risks of this lifestyle? Has anyone read ” ANIMAL FARM” and ” NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR”. This is happening right here now through our universities and public schools to most everyone. Why are our universities, courts, news media, governments and so-called Christians choosing to be selectively stupid about this? They have morally decayed Western Civilization. Are we going to let this continue?

  2. I’m with you regarding the Bishop agreeing to mediation.

    I believe he should have told the commission to take a flying leap and see how large their balls then were.

    Not very large, I wager.

    By agreeing to mediation, he is indirectly agreeing that there might be some merit to this nuisance suit.

  3. It has been my experience that the bishops are not politically astute at all.

    Mediation should have been out of the question and should have
    gotten legal advice at the very least before making a decision. It is crucial that the lawyer not be one of the usual ones. I would have suggested the Catholic Human Rights League be contacted for advice. Maybe it’s not too late.

  4. Mediation means that both sides agree there are grounds for compromise.

    In this case there are non. A homosexual man living with his partner should not be an altar server.

  5. Mr. Corcoran can consider himself a leader in the assault on the Roman Cahtolic Church. He would do well to understand what love is. Love is not an emotion, love is a decision. It involves an act of the will. When one chooses to place the needs of others above their own needs, one shows true love, not the deformed Hollywood-type love incessantly belched out of the entertainment industry, only to fall on the faithful as moral and intellectual pollution, and corrode the consciences of all who make the mistake of believing that this is reality. To allow Mr. Corcoran to continue serving in the liturgy would definitely cause scandal among the faithful, despite his claim that the relationship that he maintains with the man he lives with is purely “platonic”. This is not acceptable. Can Mr. Corcoran not think of the good of the community of the faithful over his own hurt feelings? Are his own hurt feelings so important to himself that they justify trampling over the Church and all the faithful, by means of employing a taxpayer-funded well-know-to-be-corrupt quasi-judicial body as his henchmen? Is this not a bit narcissistic? Mr. Corcoran should learn that pride is a sin. A former employee of the Canadian Human Rights Commission, and who has since been heavily involved in their proceedings, Richard Warman, has called men who practice a homosexual lifestyle a “c—-r”. The head of the national body itself, Jennifer Lynch, is a l–r. Their employees have memberships in neo-Nazi organisations and have regularly posted diatribes against men who practice a homosexual lifestyle, as well as against the Jewish people, on internet websites run by such groups. “Human Rights” commissions across the country have been instruments in persecuting Christians, both in and out of the Roman Catholic Church: Fr. Alphonse de Valk and Rev. Stephen Boissoin are two burning examples. Are we about to now add the example of Mr. Corcoran? An apology from the Bishop is nonsense. What should the Bishop apologise for? Protecting his flock against scandal? Being faithful to Christ? If anyone is to apologise, it is Mr. Corcoran, for his attack on Christ’s sheep. Mr. Corcoran should take some time off the spa and do a careful examination of conscience and ask himself who he’s working for: satan or Christ? At the end of the day, we’re all working for one or the other. How do we show our love for Christ? Through holy obedience to Him and His Church. Disobedience and pride are not fruits of the Holy Spirit. The fruits of the Holy Spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). I think that Mr. Corcoran should stop harassing the Bishop. I think that Mr. Corcoran should stop harassing the Church. I think that Mr. Corcoran would discover a happiness that the world cannot give him through material possessions if he were to show genuine humility, contrition and repentance, living and praying in the light of Christ, and not rebelling against it.
