    This came out I think about 2 weeks ago. I have watched carefully, and there has not been a response from the Bishops.
    What is wrong with these Bishops? Are they too busy planning their next defense against charges of sexual abuse within their Diocese ?
    Is it any wonder so many Catholics now believe the Separate Schools in Ontario are a shame , and mis-leading- they are not really Catholic anymore. Just another sink-hole for Catholic money.

    1. As a Registered Nurse working in West Los Angeles and Santa Monica, California at the time, when I think of all the priests I saw die of AIDS in the 1980s and 90s, maybe Catholic teaching on sex isn't such a good idea. They shoulda used condoms and dental dams. They'd probably still be alive today.

    2. The Catholic Schools are not a sink-hole for Catholic money, they are paid out of public money. It's not true that only families who check off Separate Schools on the municiple property assessment fund the Catholic Schools, that's only to determine which trustee you can vote All school funding comes out of a common fund paid for by all tax payers.

      If the Catholic system doesn't want the province telling them thay can't denigrate homosexuals, then they should be purely private. For academic reasons I've had to put my son into a private non denominational school and incur huge expenses in order to meet needs that the public schools can't meet. Catholic should do the same, if they are as committed to their child's education. Note : if he was going to a religious private school, we could claim a charitable tax credit for a substantial part of his educational fees, but since the school is private but non religious, we can claim nothing.

      Replying to the nurse--The use of condoms and other protection against getting AIDS has NEVER been an answer to anything !
      Celibacy for all those who chose the celibate life of being a Priest is and was the answer.
      It was the answer as well for those who chose the homosexual lifestyle .
      The acting out in a sinful manner has consequences!! And those who do so reap the consequences !
      It is idiocy to blame the Catholic Church because of the weak morality of some from within it.
      If you were an EDUCATED nurse you would already know that.
      Responsibility for our actions applies to everyone, not only to the 90% who are not homosexual.

    4. When it comes to educating our children, I'm pro choice. The best thing the government could do is get out of the business of running schools. Introduce a voucher system as many european countries have successfully done with a set amount of cash following each child to the school of its choosing. Set minimum academic standard, stop the social engineering and let private enterprise do the rest. That way my children get a real Catholic School, Rationalist gets his child's school covered and any other legitimate group that meets academic standards gets to pick a school that better fits his or her needs.

      Cheers

    5. The political forces of secular hedonism are encroaching further and further into the lives of its citizens. It won't be long and we'll be like China, where the government tells you how many children you can have, what churches are allowed if any, what you can think, what you can say, what you can believe, what you can eat, how you can vote (if at all)......

    6. "where the government tells you how many children you can have, what churches are allowed if any, what you can think, what you can say, what you can believe, what you can eat, how you can vote (if at all)" A generation or so ago in Quebec the Church did all that.

      No serious person thinks that our government with its Charter of Rights and Freedoms is going to do any of that.

    I will be monitoring the catholic schools very very closely as I have been for the past 30 years to ensure that they abide 'to the letter.' The law of the land is designed to force people to respect the rights and dignity of others but it is only applied to those few who do not do so by virtue. It’s primary function is to protect all and it’s secondary function is to teach and instil virtue - virtue is achieved only through activity and practice , voluntary or not-
    The secular world has become so much more holy than the religious world and that is increasing everyday.
