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.”
