Largest Ontario Catholic parents group opposes homosexual clubs in schools


Ontario’s largest association of Catholic parents has opposed the homosexual “anti-bullying” clubs being developed for Ontario’s Catholic high schools.  The group also called on the Toronto Catholic District School Board to pass amendments to its equity policy designed to protect Catholic teaching in the schools.

“We feel that the amendments enhance, strengthen and clarify the document making it more relevant to the diverse student population enjoyed by the TCDSB as well as more faithful to the teachings of the Catholic Church,” wrote Darlene Canton on behalf of the Toronto Association of Parents in Catholic Education (TAPCE) in June.

TAPCE is the Toronto affiliate of the Ontario Association of Parents in Catholic Education (OAPCE), which is recognized by the Ontario government as the voice for parents with children in Ontario’s publicly-funded Catholic schools.  Canton is an officer with TAPCE and a member of OAPCE’s board of directors.

The Toronto Catholic District School Board’s equity policy, passed earlier this year as part of the Ontario government’s sweeping equity and inclusive education strategy, has sparked an unprecedented mobilization of parents who fear that it will give homosexual activists a foothold in order to further subvert already weak Catholic sexual teaching in the schools.

    This is SO silly. Bullying of students for any reason should NOT be tolerated in any school system. There is certainly no reason for homosexual “anti-bullying” clubs to be established for Ontario’s Catholic high schools or for ANY schools anywhere.
    Whatever happened to common sense and the notion that society does not accept harassing or persecuting an innocent person at will for any reason? We don’t need to establish a governmental bureaucracy to replace what reasonable human beings all know is right or wrong and should or should not be done in a civilized society.
    School policies should prohibit taunting or bullying of anyone for any reason and these policies should be strictly enforced, with penalties levied for violations.

    How small minded and myopic to oppose these groups.

    Please keep the blinders on our eyes and our ears covered so that we won’t have to deal with the dreaded “other” – they are sinners and we are the saved and we don’t want to be contaminated by them. So, let’s pretend that “they” don’t really exist within our community and we can feel safe and comfortable.

      Thank you Charles, I agree with you 100% Let’s let people beat up on the queer kids. As long as they aren’t anti-Catholic.
