OECTA against CARDINAL COLLINS

The Ontario Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) - a militant left-wing union that officially dissents from Catholic dogma - (e.g. they wish to abolish the sacramental priesthood) - has issued a press release supporting the Ontario Government's attempt to force Catholic schools to abandon, what Thomas Cardinal Collins calls: "a particular approach to life which is largely in harmony with their family and faith convictions". 

The Holy Father and the Cardinal
I suggest that you read this press release and compare it to the Cardinal's statement. Whilst the former avoids the issue at hand (religious liberty) and turns it into a gay issue (which it is not); the Cardinal focuses on the issue: freedom of conscience and the retention of the Catholic schools as Catholic.


It might be appropriate to quote the Cardinal once more to underscore the true nature of the Government's attack on the religious liberties of Catholic schools, and to realize the scurrilousness and treachery of OECTA in attacking His Eminence. It would be beyond the scope of this post, but those who claim to be Catholic within the OECTA administration are entering upon a path of schism. 

"To the members of our Catholic community: I urge you to reflect on the implications for Catholic education of this sudden government change in policy...we need to consider the path ahead. 

...please consider the implications for all when legislation is enacted that overrides the deeply held beliefs of any faith community in our province, and intrudes on its freedom to act in a way that is in accord with its principles of conscience".


Action Plan: Please email Cardinal Collins to let him know you are supporting him.  Actions speak louder than words. The Cardinal may be reached at: archbishop@archtoronto.org
