ONTARIO ENGLISH CATHOLIC TEACHER'S ASSOCIATION: A review of its radical dissent against the Church


The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) has a long history of dissent from the Catholic Church. This goes a long way to explain the poor quality of student that it produces. In the main, these young people are un-educated, uncultured and - worse - lacking in knowledge of the Faith. How can this go on? For how long has this been going on? Where were the trustees, the parents... yes, and the bishops? 


OECTA also has a long history of political "groupthink". A few "highlights"  (any commentary would be superfluous) from 1997 include:
  • combat homphobia within the Catholic community
  • work to raise awareness of the negative effects of sexism within the Catholic Church
  • promote inclusive language in prayers and liturgies 
  • eliminate sexism in all materials used in school
  • combat sexism among male students
  • formal and informal support networks among women 
  • produce practical material ...to deal with ... a poisoned working atmosphere for women
  • eliminate offensive unofficial...beauty contests
  • discuss pervasive heterosexist attitudes that lead to homophobia
