Rainbow flags, shout-outs for abortion, promotion of women as priests etc. Now who would be doing such a thing, you may ask? A radical dissident group that has been excommunicated?
Sadly, you would be mistaken. No, the open promoters of homosexuality and these other evils, are the Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA). This militant Union is aided and abetted by the various school Boards in the Province of Ontario. In Toronto, this would be the Toronto District Catholic School Board (TDCSB). The Boards cheer on OECTA in its ongoing campaign to corrupt innocent children with - well, you guess it - SILENCE.
Not the TDCSB to remove Rainbow Flags from schools, not the TDCSB to insist on the teaching of Catholic doctrine. No, the Boards are complicit and active co-conspirators with OECTA in corrupting children. The Boards know children are being fed spiritual poison, but do nothing.
But it goes worse, far worse. What if I told you that the rot goes as far as the official Archdiocesan newspaper, the Catholic Register? What if I told you to spend a few minutes reviewing the recent issues of the Register to see their promotion of the Catholic publicly funded system as a truly Catholic education system? Gay-straight "alliances"(in truth homosexual affirming clubs - after all, why the Rainbow flags in schools?), dissent on doctrine, silence on the extremely hard left Twitter feeds of leading OECTA members, including President Ann Hawkins and so on.
Not one word from the Catholic Register that homosexuality is being hoisted on children as just an "alternate" lifestyle. Not one word from the Catholic Register that OECTA featured two (yes, two! - apparently one is not enough) Rainbow flags at its 2017 AGM. Not one word from the Catholic Register that OECTA has been promoting dissent and heresy for years. The photos of Rainbow flags at OECTA meetings; being waved by Hawkins are not to be seen gracing the pages of the Register.

The most recent outrage is the Register's article promoting "Friends of Catholic Education". Rest assured dear readers, the Register may promote Hawkins as a "friend" of Catholic education, but she is no friend.
Does a friend promote homosexuality? Does a friend obfuscate on abortion? Does a friend re-tweet a call-out in favour of abortion? Hawkins and the gang that control OECTA are no friends of Catholic education. In promoting Hawkins, OECTA, the Catholic Register is proving it too, is no friend of Catholic education.
Readers should be aware that the Catholic Register is owned by the Archdiocese of Toronto. Cardinal Collins is its ultimate boss, as he is the boss of the Catholic schools within the Archdiocese of Toronto. For the Cardinal to sit idly by and to remain silent, whilst "gay" Rainbow flags are displayed in Catholic schools is a dereliction of duty. I wonder what Cardinal Collins would tell a parent as to why a Rainbow flag is up in a Catholic school. In 2012, Cardinal Collins began to take a few small steps to oppose OECTA. Sadly, he has gone silent ever since.
Gone are the days of Larry Henderson. Gone are the days when one could read the Catholic Register, knowing that it is fully Catholic. The Catholic Register has become a propaganda arm of the elite, "go-along-to-get-along" crowd. Gone are the days when Catholicism meant to be counter cultural.
Bishop Michael Power would not be proud. He would - and I am sure he is - ashamed of the treachery in the Archdiocese of Toronto. Be assured, Bishop Power would not be an ecumenical zealot, he would not promote homosexuality, or sit idly by, he would not allow our children to be corrupted, he would not sit on his hands with teachers advocating priestesses, or abortion. He would not hold a dinner in which the Master of Ceremonies was a politician who brought in legislation that resulted in the death of millions of babies. He would not be silent if his teachers dared to invite an open arch-heretic like ex-priest Gregory Baum (a self-admitted practicing homosexual) to address them.
Bishop Power, please move the hearts of the Cardinal his auxiliary bishops, his priests to truly stand up for Christ and His Church, in season and out of season.
Bishop Power, pray for us.
