Gay activists threaten to challenge Catholic doctrine in court if schools donít follow Bill 13

As Catholic bishops in Ontario scramble to figure out how to square McGuinty’s new law mandating Gay-Straight Alliances with Catholic teaching on sexual morality, homosexual activist groups say that they are prepared to challenge Catholic doctrine in court come September.

Ontario Gay-Straight Alliances Coalition lawyer Doug Elliott told the homsoexual news service Xtra! that if Catholics “driven by the position of the Vatican” think they have found a loophole in the legislation, then they will be hauled before the courts.

“If the schools try to play games with kids …. the law is clear. We won’t put up with any of that crap come September,” Elliott said. “If you’re not complying with the law, then we’re going to take you to court. It’s that simple.”

Tonya Callaghan, a lesbian researcher and former Catholic teacher whose work, “Holy Homophobia: Doctrinal Disciplining of Non-heterosexuals in Canadian Catholic Schools,” is about to be published, says that Catholic schools are “hotbeds of homophobia”.

“The reason is because of Catholic doctrine that directs all the policy and practice in those schools regarding sexual minority groups,” she told Xtra!.

Callaghan said that Catholic doctrine on homosexuality “flies in the face of the laws of the land and Canadian equality rights.” She called the Catholic document titled Pastoral Guidelines to Assist Students of Same-Sex Attraction “dangerous” because “the doctrine [within it] is like bullying to queer youth.”

Canada does not have a First Amendment.

Catholics will shut schools. Go under ground. Persecution is good for the faithful.

> Canada does not have a First Amendment.

What makes you think the courts will uphold the US First Amendment when the Gaystapo hauls Christians before the courts for “hate crimes”?

Face it.

Once the creepy sodomites got their foot in the door, it was over, all over, for the Christians who still believe that Sodomy and Fornication and Adultery are SIN.

I have wondered why—through history—when gays became more mainstream they ended up being put back in the closet~
Now I understand why~

Any other questions about how anti-bullying laws work, and what they’re for?

...and why the Left always fails - whether it takes 5 years or 70 years. Because they are unnatural.

Sadly, that may need to be upheld by the Second.

Today, those practicing homosexual behavior are emboldened to stridently challenge the Catholic church in court - and anyone else who dares oppose their agenda to get at our children. I don’t know Canadian law but I have a hunch the Sodomites will win their case. The sad part is that it only took about 40 years to get here.

How does this comport with muslims up there? Canada has a fairly large muslim presence as a proportion of the population as a whole. Has this mandate met with pushback from them, or has the government given them a pass?

Christians believe that, if it's in God's will they have to be ready to suffer from being persecuted from bearing Christ's name. It doesn't follow that persecution is good for them. The latter implies we seek for being persecuted in a way Sadomasochists seek for being hurt because it feels good for them. The difference is one is ready when it comes but doesn't see it desirable, the other sees persecution as desirable situation.

Catholics and other Christians need to disobey this law and challenge it in court. If they fail in court, then they need to simply continue to disbobey this law. They have the example of Peter (Acts 4:29) and the prophets before him, and countless of people since him, who stood for the law of God when secular law sought to trump it.

From the point of view of the liberty of individuals and institutions, this law strikes at the very root of a foundational freedom. No government, no matter how hard it may try, has the right to dictate what a person or a religious body may or may not think or believe or teach. (No government, that is, outside of North Korea, Saudi Arabia, etc.) If Canadians and Americans and any other free people care to continue to be free, they had better fight this kind of law with all their might.

Complain about being a persecuted minority.

If they had their way all the kids would be recruited and they would become a majority OVERNIGHT.

Then they would have to use turkey basters to take from the hims to inseminate the hers and brainwash more home grown recruits for the next wave of young meat.

“Callaghan said that Catholic doctrine on homosexuality “flies in the face of the laws of the land and Canadian equality rights.” “

The laws of the land flies in the face of the laws of God.

Canada was founded on the articles of confederation in the British North America act which gave both Catholics and Protestants legal rights, also in education, to teach freely according to the dictates of their religion.

Canada has also a Charter of Rights and Freedoms with includes freedom of religion. When it was drafted, homosexual rights were explicitly excluded by the drafters.

Homosexual rights were read into the charter by the courts. I point this history out because it indicates that constitutions, bills of rights or charters are no real defense against determined wickedness. They are pieces of paper which men tear up when it suits them.

God’s judgment however does not change.

This article is chock full of things that boggle the (thinking) mind......”homosexual news service”? “lesbian researcher”? They all belong on the B Ark with the telephone sanitizers and management consultants. Course now that Obama has come out of the closet these are the sorts of people that will be in charge of things if we don’t get rid of him.

This would be a good time for you to research what happened in the Vendée in France in the 1790’s. That will answer your question. By the way, the Crusades weren’t what you apparently think they were, based upon your remark.

The problem for the Catholic schools in Ontario is that they are publicly funded. The Canadian Supreme Court has already ruled that Ontario does not need to extend public funding to Jewish or moon cult schools.

Once you accept taxpayer money, you're screwed. My advice is for the RCC to tell the Canuck Ceasar that he can keep his filthy denarii, tell the queers to shove off, and go about their business of providing an untainted Catholic education as purely private schools.

Disgusting sodomites used to have enough sense to feel guilty ashamed of themselves so would stay in the closet. Now these perverts & misfits are trying to dominate normal people. But they still know the “sex” they have is insane and contrary to human nature especially what the guys do to each other. Plus keep doing that anal sex and it will make them even crazier because it messes up their nervous system on up to their brains

Very true...and we're not talking about a very old document, either. It received royal assent in 1982.
