Paycheck in Catholicism
From a reader…
Paycheck in Catholic Education, Homosexuality, Religious Freedom
Back in 2003, I sat beside soon-to-be Premier Dalton McGuinty at an All-Candidate’s Debate in Ottawa South. You can hear my opening and closing remarks below.
As you will hear in the clip, I was rather animated and “direct” about McGuinty’s pro-gay, anti-religious freedom stance. Most people did not really see the danger of McGuinty’s position, or if they did, they didn’t bother getting too worked up about it.
I didn’t pull any punches then, because I knew what was coming down the pipe for our Catholic kids today. And I was right. What was “unthinkable” 10 years ago with homosexuality in Catholic schools is becoming the standard fare today.
With the current “Anti-Gay Bullying” Bill just months away from becoming law and affecting Catholic education forever in this province, I think my remarks were spot-on.
I even told the crowd assembled at that Debate that their problems would be 10 times worse in 10 years. Well that was 9 years ago. We’re well on the way for that prediction to come true. And we’re further along in losing our religious freedom.
Without the necessary resolve and leadership, we Catholics – and what I mean by that is real Catholics – are well on the way to second-class citizenship in Ontario and in Canada.
I am amazed, really, at just how clueless and naive the regular Joe Six Pack Catholic is….or maybe I am just amazed at how little their religion means to them.
Either way, a pruning is happening because this Gong Show is coming to a quick end because God really does want to know if we’re all serious about being Catholic.
The bishops in the Philippines sure ain’t afraid to stare down the enemies of their flock. Their opposition to the “Reproductive Health” bill is well documented. Now they’re taking on a huge mining company.
It’s not uncommon for multinationals to take advantage of poor countries by wrecking the environment to make a quick buck exploiting natural resources. The multinational mining giant Xstrata is currently looking to expand its operations in the Philippines in a manner that violates government environmental laws. Politicians are under pressure to amend the laws to allow the project to go through. However, local residents and the Catholic Church are opposed to the operation because of the environmental impact. The blowback is having a big impact.
Yeah, they’d better be afraid ’cause the priests are calling it like they see it: Read the rest of this entry »
Paycheck in Catholic Education, Homosexuality
Well, it looks like the “Anti-Gay Bullying” Bill is making its rounds in the province. The “Bill 13 Committee ” will be in Ottawa today to listen to the concerns of parents and other “stakeholders”.
The truth of this Bill, as everyone already knows, is not really about bullying Gay students. It’s about advancing an agenda and bullying students in the Separate School system and shaming them into accepting Sodomy as a legitimate way of life. If there is any bullying going on, it will be against Faithful Catholic Kids as the Gay activists and their sycophants use this latest canard – like they do in just about every other arena - to punish dissent and make sure everyone learns the language of “Gayspeak” and dutifully and obediently conforms to it.

Squeaker in Catholicism
I couldn’t find these prayers on the website of the CCCB. I wonder why the Canadian bishops haven’t published this yet. Hopefully the delay is only due to the need to translate it to French.
Paycheck in Catholic Education, Catholic Scandals
This victimology is all about taking our focus off of the ONE TRUE victim who is Jesus Christ.
When – oh when – are we going to get leaders who are going to put these “Catholics” in their place.
When are we going to get bishops who finally pull the plug on this pathetic Gong show that mocks our Faith every passing day.
This “pastoral” approach hasn’t worked in 40 years, and it’s working even less now.
The bishops either take control of the School System or cut bait and start again. But this sham spectacle has to end one way or another.
Paycheck in Catholic Education, Homosexuality, Religious Persecution
This is the kind of direct questions that we need more of from our Clergy. Good on the Orthodox for asking the hard questions. It’s time to push back. And the politicians really do need to understand that imposing Gaydom on our children will have political repercussions. Only when we start taking ourselves seriously will the politicians start to pay attention.
It’s time for Christians to stop being the doormat of Dalton McGuinty.
Good on Fr. Anthony. Great priest. Takes no bull but delivers the hard truth with charity.
Paycheck in Catholicism, Pro-Life Activism
Above is an email that I received about my push for having a Eucharistic procession and benediction on Parliament Hill. While I certainly respect the idea of having all Christians and non-Christians alike join in the abortion battle, the idea that Catholics (or any Faith group, for that matter) have to somehow check their spirituality at the door is rooted in a false ecumenism. Do not all Christians suffer from the complaint by the Secularists? “Keep your religion out of politics.” If we Christians reject this idea, then we should also reject the same principle when it applies to our intramural differences, as well. It’s the same deadly logic that seeks to impose an artificial unity. We, as Catholics, are on Parliament Hill principally because we are Catholic. So why should we hide our distinct spirituality because it offends non-Catholics? First of all, we’re 90-95% of the people who show up for the March for Life every year. That alone makes this “you may give offense” charge, offensive in itself! Secondly, no Catholic would feel offended if other Christians or non-Christians wanted to express the reason for their participation, either. And remember, folks, I am not even suggesting having the Eucharistic event during the actual March itself. Heaven forbid! I am simply saying, “We Catholics brought abortion in to this country. We Catholics have to do our part to take it out, in our own way.” I repeat: this is a spiritual battle which must be won in that realm, first, before it translates into sociological and political victory.
Paycheck in Catholicism, Religious Persecution
The Catholic Church has been sleeping for the past 40 years, getting fat and lazy, and becoming too damn cozy with the State to the point where we were becoming the department of social justice within the government. Obama has changed all that. He is indeed the gift that keeps on giving. He very well might be the single most important cause for the resurgence of the Catholic Church. For that, we all must be very grateful.
