CHRISTIANS OR PAGANS ? ~ is our Catholic Faith alive in our works, or are we "Christian charlatans"?

The Christian life is a life of belief and action, our actions are informed by our belief, our belief is reflected in our actions. They are inseparable.

St. Paul outlined for us a few identifiers of the authentic Christian.

In the Book to the Romans 12; 9-21, he wrote: 

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. 
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn.
Live in harmony with one another. Do not be proud, but be willing to associate with people of low position. Do not be conceited.
Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone.
If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.
Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord.
On the contrary: “If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.  

St. James stressed this in his epistle:

Just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead. (James 2:26).

Crisis at the Toronto Catholic District School Board ~ Have trustees and teachers LOST the Catholic Faith?

The outstanding Catholic blog, Everyday for Life, Canada once again has published gravely disturbing details on the ongoing demolition of our once Catholic schools. Readers of that blog, as well as our own, will be aware of years of corrosive decay in the areas of Catholic Faith and Morals. 

To quote from Everyday for Life, Canada: 
The Toronto Catholic District Schools Board (TCDSB) is no longer the school board that many parents believe or want it to be....The Biblical words "sin," "evil," "devil," and "hell" are no longer welcomed at the TCSDB....The updated TCDSB board code of conduct says that boys and girls are not just boys and girls but that a girl can be a boy and a boy can be a girl....
The full article can be read here. 

No one is forcing these dissident trustees and teachers, administrators etc. to remain Catholic. The gift of Faith is given freely, but must be accepted in its entirety. As St. Augustine taught, to reject one doctrine, is to reject all doctrine. The Christian Faith is not a personal assemblage of ideas; the keeping of some doctrines, the discarding of others. It is received. The Faith is, as is defined in the Catechism, is: "a supernatural virtue, infused by God" (1,1, 153). This definition also means that there is only one Faith, for God cannot contradict Himself, and impart "faiths" that are in conflict with each other over doctrine. 

As I have written before, these trustees, teachers and others, when they reject the Church's teachings on the sanctity of human sexuality, the exclusiveness of sexual expression within Matrimony, are guilty of material heresy. They blaspheme God by mocking the order of Creation and the reflection of the Triune Love as reflected in the acts proper to marriage between husband and wife. St. John Paul II could not have written it more clearly: so-called same sex "marriage" is an ideology of evil. 

It is time to move from the pastoral admonition to challenge these dissenters on the doctrinal level, to challenge each and every trustee, teacher and administrator ad seriatum

1. Do you reject lust as a morally disordered desire that is isolated from the right use of sexual pleasure within marriage? (c.f. CCC 2351)

2. Do you reject masturbation as an objectively evil act? This question must be asked, as homosexuality involves mutual masturbation, manually, orally and anally. (c.f. CCC: 2352)

3. Do you reject pornography as it (e.g.) offends against the marital act? Sex "education" that teaches sexual acts outside of marriage, or the teaching of the 'LGBT" agenda as acceptable expressions of sexuality therefore qualify as pornographic. (c.f. CCC 2354)

4. Do you reject homosexual acts as "acts of grave depravity" and "intrinsically disordered"?  Do you reject homosexual acts as "contrary to natural law"?
(c.f. CCC 2357)

5. Do you accept that persons with same-sex attraction are "called to chastity", and therefore to refrain from same-sex sexual activity? (CCC 2359)

6. Do you accept that sexual love is "ordered to the conjugal love of a man and a woman"? (CCC 2360)

7. Do you accept that under no circumstance can homosexual acts be approved? (CCC 2357)

8. Do you accept that for those for whom homosexual inclinations is a trail, they should be accepted "with respect, compassion and sensitivity", such that they can "fulfill God's will in their lives"and, "if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition"? (CCC 2358)

9. Do you accept the following teaching that "Among the sins gravely contrary to chastity are masturbation, fornication, pornography, and homosexual practices"? (CCC 2396)

Those who reject Sacred Scriptures and the teachings of the Church we can openly state they are gravely suspect of material heresy. How we approach human sexuality and the morality of human acts, is not, as one dissenting teacher wrote (his arrogance only outdone by his ignorance) based on political positions. It is based on Divine Revelation through the Authority of Christ's Church. The Catechism is not conjecture, opinion, it is mandated with Apostolic Authority. St. Pope John Paul II wrote
I today order by virtue of my Apostolic Authority, is a statement of the Church's faith and of catholic doctrine, attested to or illumined by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church's Magisterium. I declare it to be a sure norm for teaching the faith...
Those who reject this Apostolic Authority, and the Catechism are placing themselves in a very dangerous position. Such people expose themselves as actors of ill will, knowingly pouring spiritual poison into our children and youth. They are not just bad Catholics, but public dissenters and evil corrupters of the innocent. Following Bishop Emeritus of Calgary, His Excellency Fred Henry, we quote:
Only God can judge the state of the human soul but it is pure nonsense to suggest we cannot and should not judge human behaviour. Reluctance to judge moral behaviour is the inevitable consequence of moral relativism and moral subjectivism that has eroded confidence in the ability to determine objective moral truth on which sound judgment is based.
As Bishop Henry also wrote there is an objective moral order of truth. Part of this objective moral order is that "male and female He created them" (Gen 5:2; Mt 19:4; Mk 10:6) and that "a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh" (Gen 2:24; Mt 19:5; Mk 10:7; 1 Cor 6:16; Eph 5:31).

Solemn Latin Mass for the Feast of the Epiphany for Toronto area Catholics

Dear Catholic friends who live in Toronto. Tomorrow there is a Solemn Latin Mass for the Feast of the Epiphany. Come, let us celebrate the Visit of the Three Kings. 

This great feast has been downplayed in recent years. In other countries, such as Poland, Italy this is not so. The Three Kings have and continue to have incredible importance. 

Bring friends and family if you are able, and remember to pray for all of those involved with the Toronto Traditional Latin Mass Society.

George Weigel: Has the neocon propagandist taken to trying to censor Catholics?

George Weigel is at it again. Church Militant reports that the wealthy Beltway resident, neocon Zionist, Americanist-Catholic, and self-declared "theologian" is warning Catholics to keep away from "unofficial" Catholic news sources. Naturally, Wegiel believes himself to be one of those "official" sources of news, but more importantly opinion. Let there be no mistake Weigel has some very strange opinions. For those who have been following his thought his Catholicism is very heavy on promoting the "liberal democratic political project", and not the social Kingship of Christ. 

Let us now consider this man and a bit of his strange history. Just how did George Wiegel become a "theologian" on a graduate degree (on Karl Rahner), from St. Michael's College at the University of Toronto? I'm sorry, but having a graduate degree from St. Mike's hardly qualifies one as a "theologian" of any standing.

Having disposed of Weigel's "theologian" persona, let us now examine his much more dangerous "socio-political" persona. 

George Weigel graduated in 1975 and went on to lecture at a very low-end seminary in Seattle which closed in the Fall of 1977, for lack of seminarians.  During this time it would seem he was into the proto-neocon "World without War Council" which ironically advocated war to end war! In the mid 80s Weigel made a major step forward and was recruited into the Wilson Center. By whom and for what reason was he recruited? How did Weigel, an obscure "theologian", suddenly became a person of interest in high-=powered political think tanks? 

Within a few short years, Weigel was rubbing shoulders with the political and social elite of Washington D.C. Just what talents and skills does Weigel have to be drawn into the inner circles of some of the most powerful men in America? Is Weigel "their man" to move amongst the exalted circles of the American hierarchy, advocating for Catholic support for the neocon political agenda, with the result that millions of ignorant Catholic voters will cast ballots that favour the militaristic adventurism of American imperialist foreign policy?

Weigel has been a faithful servant of his political mentors and benefactors: churning out hundreds of articles and over 50 books. He has created a cottage industry of mixing politics and his strange brand of Catholicism, and it has proven to be for Weigel, a very profitable cash cow. So profitable it has been that Weigel lives in the wealthy Rockville-North Bethesda neighbourhood in Montgomery County, Maryland, and vacations regularly in his summer cottage in the Outaouais region of western Quebec. Contrast his lifestyle to a US war veteran, disabled for life, suffering PTSD, living in poverty after fighting, and in constant danger of committing suicide. 

The question remains unanswered. Just what did Weigel have to become a: "distinguished fellow" of the neo-con "Ethics and Public Policy Center", the "Project for the New American Century", the "National Endowment for Democracy", the "Friends of Israel Initiative"? What did these recruiters see in George Weigel? Each of these organizations is intrinsically anti-Catholic. Their objectives are not in favour of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. They are all opposed to Christ's Church. 

The various signatories and leaders of these organizations have far from their thoughts, Jesus Christ and His Social Kingship over Society. Pius XI wrote in Quas Primas that Our Lord should be publicly recognized by the State, is absolutely anathema to men such as Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams, Robert Kagan, Aaron Friedberg, I. Lewis Libby, Carl Gershman (interestingly once an "officer" of the "Young People's Socialist League) and so on....

Just how many neo-cons hanker for state control/soc?
Neo-conservatives like socialists, 
advocate secular messianism and globalism

There is no incongruity between socialism and neo-conservatism. Both are secular and promote a materialistic messianism. As with Karl Marx and David Ricardo, so too with the socialists and neo-conservatives. The "disagreements" are an "in-house" dispute. What is not disputed is: secularism, messianism and globalism imbued with a virulent anti-Christian worldview. One would have to be a complete fool to think that (e.g.) William Kristol of the PNAC and the EPPC (both of which Wiegel belongs to) thinks in terms of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Sovereign King. What is it in Weigel these globalist neocon ideologues see? What service does he offer them? 

Assorted neo-con war mongers who are - in varying degrees -responsible
for the death of hundreds of thousands in the Iraq War and around the world

George Weigel has consistently advocated for wars of aggression, sponsored by neo-cons and the Zionist State of Israel. Weigel even had the audacity to claim that Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI were wrong in their assessments of the Middle East situation. The never-ending blood bath has since proved the two Popes correct. Weigel rejected the Popes and supported the criminal invasion of Iraq that led to the virtual destruction of that ancient civilization, and the deaths of over 200,000 civilians, millions living in poverty, and fear of constant violence and death. Nearly 5000 American boys have died for this disgusting foreign war, with tens of thousands suffering life-long PTSD (estimated at 30%); not too mention broken families, suicide (about 2 dozen per day) and poverty when they returned to the States. The leading war criminals who prosecuted this war are free to this day, feted by the controlled media, and live in luxury. 

America's Blood and Treasure being sacrificed in vain for foreign wars

Weigel's bizarre political positions and go back years, as a devoted exponent of the "liberal democratic project", and consistent supporter of aggression and imperialism serving the neocons. goes back many years. For example he even signed the neo-con 1997 PNAC "Statement of Principles" which included the following text:

The PNAC "Statement of Principles" 

The 1997 Signatories of the PNAC 

Friends, keep far away from the enigmatic and contradictory George Weigel who on the one hand speaks of reading the lives of the saints, yet has devoted his much of life as a propagandist for a violent political ideology that is far from the Mind of Christ. 

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God".
(Mt 5:9)

St. John Chrysostom VS. the Pontifical Biblical Commission: The Sin of Sodom WAS HOMOSEXUAL DEPRAVITY

A homosexual mocking Our Lord Jesus Christ at a
"gay flag" raising at Toronto City Hall 

Is the Sin of Sodom "inhospitality"? Are the phrases coming to "know them" (Gen 19:5), "going after strange flesh" (Jude, 1:7), "vile affections" (Romans, (1: 25) references to (so the dissenters claim) inhospitality and not unnatural lust for the same sex? Have biblical exegetes been wrong for OVER 2000 years? 

Were the inspired authors of Sacred Scriptures wrong? Has the Catholic Church been wrong for 2000 years? The historical fact is, that the Kingdom of Sodom and its cities of Gomorrah, Admah and Zeboim were utterly destroyed (c.f. Deuteronomy 29:23) for the sin of homosexuality. Zoar (Bela) was spared for the sake of Lot and his family.

"Catholic" teachers disgracing themselves and mocking Our Lord Jesus Christ
by marching in a "gay pride" parade

Where are the men which came in to thee this night? Bring them out unto us, that we may know them (Gen. 19:5)

Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire. (Jude 1:7)

For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet (Rom. 1:26–27)

Teachers responsible for elementary children encouraging participation
in evil "gay pride" events (e.g. drag shows,  bathhouse events etc.

St. John Chrysostom in his 4th Homily on the Book of Romans deals in great detail on the causes and effects of the sin of sodomy. The great saint, also referencing the Book of Jude writes about homosexuality in this way: 

How many hells shall be enough for such? But if you scoff at hearing of hell and believest not that fire, remember Sodom. For we have seen, surely we have seen, even in this present life, a semblance of hell. For since many would utterly disbelieve the things to come after the resurrection, hearing now of an unquenchable fire,God brings them to a right mind by things present. For such is the burning of Sodom, and that conflagration! And they know it well that have been at the place, and have seen with their eyes that scourge divinely sent, and the effect of the lightnings from above. (Jude 7) Consider how great is that sin, to have forced hell to appear even before its time!
God destroys those who engage in the sin of Sodom. It is, one of the four sins that cry to Heaven for Vengeance. Any Catholic who excuses, lessens this sin, if they have not lost the Faith are well on the way to losing it.

Friends, please understand how evil this sin is. God hates homosexuality. It blasphemes the Creator. It blasphemes the Love of the Most Holy Trinity. It mocks - sacrilegiously - the Sacrament of Marriage, which is a reflection of the Unitive Love between the Persons of the Most Holy Trinity. When we begin to understand this, we see just how evil homosexuality is. 

God will not be mocked. He destroyed Sodom, and He will destroy each and every Nation - without exception - that does not repent  and do penance for the Sin of Sodomy. In fact, God is already in the process of bringing His wrath down upon us. Far worse, than even a war (and I believe a war is coming as a chastisement), is the the near demolition of the Catholic Church.

St. Michael the Archangel or "LGBT" ideology: Guess what is more preferred at the Toronto Catholic District School Board?

"I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," (Acts, 9:5)

Gender ideology is the new Nazism of the 21st Century

There is something terribly wrong at the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB). Followers of this blog, will be well aware of the 8-4 vote in favour of "LGBT" gender ideology being enshrined in its Code of Conduct this past December. As I wrote the other day, we are not dealing with people (the dissenters who voted in favour) who are going through a private, spiritual crisis of faith. No, we are dealing with people who have not only lost the Faith (though, of course they would deny it), but actually hate the Faith and reject Jesus Christ. 

"LGBT" activist-infiltrators in Catholic education 

They reject Him, for the "christ" they proclaim does not exist. Their "christ" is NOT Yeshua, God Incarnate, who took Flesh from His and our Mother Miriam 2000 years ago, who preached in Galilee, proclaimed His Father, worked miracles, forgave repentant sinners, and then came down to Jerusalem to be mocked, scourged, and crucified at the hands of sinful men. Yeshua rose again in the Flesh on the third day. He established HIS Church, the New Israel to preach to ALL men (without exception) and commanded that they ALL be incorporated into HIS Mystical Body, the Catholic Church. 

Their "christ" is a false "christ", a "christ" that is of this world, a LGBT "christ", a gnostic "christ". This "christ" is a satanic creation. In believing in this satanic "christ", they (perhaps for some unwittingly) hate Jesus of Nazareth. But if they know what HIS Church teaches, but reject it, then they hate Jesus. For He identifies Himself with His Church (""Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?" Acts 9:4). In voting in favour of "LGBT" ideology, they persecuted, and continue to persecute Jesus of Nazareth (c.f. Acts 9:5). 

Two very recent events manifest the ongoing persecution of Jesus of Nazareth. The first is trustee Norm Di Pasquale praising the bisexual, pro-abortion and "LGBT" activist, Cheri DiNovo as a "spiritual leader", and congratulating her on receiving the (now disgraced) Order of Canada. 

What Catholic would praise a woman who claims to be "ordained" in a heretical, pro-abortion/"LBGT" sect as a "spiritual leader"? As a Catholic, Di Pasquale knows that those in sects outside Christ's only Church, have received NO commission to preach, let alone a woman pretending to be a minister of the Gospel, mocking the Mass, teaching not only heresy, but open apostasy. 

"Spiritual Leader" DiNovo mocking the Mass

DiNovo is also notorious as a pro-abortion activist. She was even involved in the late 1990s in a protest group that threatened violence against a pro-life conference being held in Toronto. In fact the police had to be called to ensure that thugs associated with DiNovo did not attack people. I know about this, as I was at the conference. Her pro-abortion activism in politics, and  her public appearances in promoting abortion continues to this day. Yet Di Pasquale calls her a "spiritual leader" and a "conscience" for the city of Toronto!

outside an abortion "clinic" in the west-end of Toronto.

DiNovo is also a fanatical "LGBT" activist, even being a so-called "co-grand marshall" at the 2012 Toronto "gay pride" parade. As a member of the Ontario Legislature, DiNovo distinguished herself as a notorious gender ideology propagandist. Yet Di Pasquale praises her for "incredible service" and "standing up for human rights".  

"Spiritual leader" DiNovo at "Gay Pride" 
What kind of a Catholic praises and supports someone who advocates for such evils? Worse, this man is doing so publicly, as a member of the TCDSB. Yet these same dissenting trustees dare to try to demand an apology of Michael Del Grande for defending Catholic morals, all the while they go about promoting depravity and trying to impose it on innocent children and youth! Di Pasquale should should RESIGN!  

The second scandalous event - it is hard to believe, but it is even worse then the first - is reported by the excellent Catholic blog, "Everyday for Life, Canada", where an attempt to promote the Prayer to St. Michael was rejected by the dissenting TCDSB. There can be no doubt that there is something of the diabolic in the thinking and actions of a number of trustees on the Board. 

EFL, Canada writes: 
The Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB) has decided that they, the staff and the students that attend and work in Catholic schools should not recite the St. Michael's Prayer. One trustee said that even the discussion about the motion to do so was a waste of time because they have more important things to do and talk about.

As EFL, Canada reports, these dissenters can promote gender ideology, graphic and pornographic sex-education, but they cannot accept a prayer to St. Michael. Well, at least they not hypocrites, at least they are consistent. They hate Jesus and His Church; they are proving it through their actions. 

Read the full report here. 

So there you have it, dear friends. As we end the secular year, let us reflect on the monstrous EVIL that has penetrated Catholic education in Ontario and Toronto. Pray for these deluded trustees, educators who have been seduced by world, and no longer believe in the Jesus Christ, His Church and His Gospel, but believe in secular humanism, the "LGBT" gender ideology, and the sexual revolution. Pray also for the bishops and priests, who are silent, if not co-conspirators with these evil dissenters. Those who corrupt the innocent, will have to answer to Jesus Christ, the Lion of Judah. 

Bishop Emeritus, Fred Henry of Calgary

These evil dissenters will fall back on the usual non sequitur about Catholics  being "intolerant" and "judgmental". 

Let us see what Bishop Emeritus Fred Henry taught authoritatively on this: 
Only God can judge the state of the human soul but it is pure nonsense to suggest we cannot and should not judge human behaviour. Reluctance to judge moral behaviour is the inevitable consequence of moral relativism and moral subjectivism that has eroded confidence in the ability to determine objective moral truth on which sound judgment is based.

The last word on this subject belongs to Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI: "How many winds of doctrine we have known in recent decades, how many ideological currents, how many ways of thinking. The small boat of thought of many Christians has often been tossed about by these waves ­ thrown from one extreme to the other.... Every day new sects are created and what Saint Paul says about human trickery comes true, with cunning which tries to draw those into error [cf Ephesians 4, 14].

Having a clear Faith, based on the Creed of the Church, is often labelled today as a fundamentalism. Whereas, relativism, which is letting oneself be tossed and 'swept along by every wind of teaching,' looks like the only attitude acceptable to today's standards. We are moving towards a dictatorship of relativism which does not recognize anything as certain and which has as its highest goal one's own ego and one's own desires. However, we have a different goal: the Son of God, true man.

Cries of "hate speech" thrown at Catholics at TCDSB meeting by dissenting trustees and "LGBT" activists

Complete moral chaos reigns at the Toronto Catholic District School Board (TCDSB). Never has the situation looked so grim, with activist-dissenters constituting the majority of the Board, with the result of promoting dissident views contrary to Catholic Faith and Morals. 

I watched online some of the proceedings from last Monday's (December 23rd, 2019) special meeting called to denounce Trustee Michael del Grande for calling gender ideology "evil". Readers may recall that Pope St. John Paul II also used the the word "evil" to describe homosexual activity in his last book. 

Just within ten minutes of watching these people it was so obvious that the vast majority had lost the Faith. One could feel, even watching online, the animosity, the distain when a Catholic priest presented in the opening minutes the truths of the Catholic Faith. One could see, feel, they no longer believed. The bored stiff looks on the dissenters' faces told it all: when will this "stupid, old priest stop telling us how to live our lives. Gay is good..." 

The next presenter was a retired Catholic school Principal, Lou Iacobelli. While he was speaking, a member of the audience cried out "hate speech". Following this excellent speech was a very bizarre and disturbing presentation from a woman who claimed to be the head of the Toronto Elementary Catholic Teachers Association, Julie Altomare-Di Nuzio. It was obvious, that she too - tragically - had lost the Faith. It should be noted that Li Preti, also called out "hate speech", when Catholic doctrine was being quoted by another presenter. Yes, this is how "they", the dissenters, the real haters, are trying to persecute Catholics! 

Those of us who know a bit of history cannot but see how this confrontation reflected the Italy of the 1930s: back then the fascists against the Catholics. Today, Rizzo, Li Preti et al., once again against the Catholics. Shameful! 

These confused, sad people have rejected the Catholic Faith. They may claim they believe, but they do not. One cannot believe in gender ideology and the Catholic Faith. These dissenting trustees no longer believe in the Church, the Sacred Scriptures and openly reject the sanctity of the Sacrament of Marriage and the holiness of male-female sexuality, and excuse and promote sexual perversion. In doing so, they reject Jesus Christ. 

Their "belief" is like claiming to believe in "dry water". An impossibility. Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself said: "From the beginning God made them male and female. For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife and the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one flesh". (Mk, 10 6-8). 

Dear friends, this latest confrontation was lost when dissenting Boards across Ontario threw in with gender ideology over the past year. It must be said that the bishops of Ontario did nothing. But it goes back decades when the lesbian Joanna "That Bitch" Manning, defeated then Cardinal Ambrozic in the courts, and obtained her teaching job back, even though she was openly teaching heresy to young people. Manning went on to apostatize into Anglicanism, to then leave that sect for witchcraft. 

It should be noted that already in the late 1980s dissenters had seized control of the organs of the Ontario Catholic Teachers' Association (OECTA), transforming it into a militant, activist Union that is notorious for pro-abortion and pro-homosexual propaganda. It should also be noted that every "Catholic" teacher to get into the public system needs a letter of referral from the parish priest stating the individual is a practicing and BELIEVING Catholic. We know that most teachers are not practicing, and therefore certainly not believing. Once again, we see the destructive role played over the past decades of - let us be honest - evil and wayward priests, who had no calling to the priesthood. These wicked men facilitated the destruction of our Catholic schools. They will answer to God for it. 

Here is part of the address (called out as "hate speech") published by "Everyday for Life, Canada":  

 Good evening everyone, I'm here tonight as a retired Catholic teacher, parent and grandparent. We want begin by citing a bit of Canada's Catholic history. In 1897, 122 years ago this month, Pope Leo XIII issued a letter called, Affari Vos. It was his response to the Manitoba Schools Question as the province tried to pass a law to end Catholic education in Manitoba.
Pope Leo writes in defence of Catholic education: "This is a toxic law. For our children cannot go for instruction to schools which oppose the Catholic religion, or its teachings are despised and its basic principles rejected.” We must “avoid at all costs, as most dangerous, those schools in which all beliefs are welcomed and treated as equal, as if, in what regards God and divine things, it makes no difference whether one believes rightly or wrongly, and takes up with truth or error.”

O Rex Gentium

O King of the Gentiles and the desired of them,
Thou cornerstone that makest both one,
come and deliver man,
whom Thou didst form out of the dust of the earth.
