June 29, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) – The rise of the power and influence of homosexual priests, bishops and cardinals, as well as influential laity, has been a major factor in the growing chaos within Catholicism over the past 60 years. This disorder within the Catholic Church has had a negative impact on the entire world because of the resulting decline in the positive influences that Catholicism has had on civilization for many centuries.
To think that what is happening now is new, however, betrays an ignorance of history. In 1049, when St. Peter Damien wrote his treatise, Book of Gomorrah (Liber Gomorrhianus), to Pope Leo IX, homosexuality and sexual perversion in general were far more openly rampant within the clergy than today. This horrendous state of affairs is what the Saint addressed in his appeal to the Pope for urgently needed reforms.
We often hear from sleepy, comfortable, cowardly, timid or cultural Catholics, and especially from clergy who are directly implicated in homosexuality, that we should never criticize priests, bishops and especially the Pope. Supposedly, that is a greater sin than that of the heretics and sexual perverts facilitating great personal suffering and sending souls to Hell without anyone doing what is necessary to either convert or stop them.
St. Peter Damien was not so foolish as to listen to such nonsense denying God His justice at a time when the Church appeared to be in its death throes. (more...)

It's a rare, if not historic pushback—tens of thousands of people across the Canadian province of Ontario are announcing loudly that they oppose the new sex education curriculum proposed by the province’s premier, Kathleen Wynne. Large numbers of protestors have made their voices heard in front of Wynne's office, in front of the provincial legislature at Queen's Park, and at the offices of Members of Provincial Parliament across the province. Harking from every culture and ethnic group, the protestors are demanding one thing: Let kids be kids.
The entire phenomenon is startling for a number of reasons. First of all, school systems have been implementing sex education programs that parents have disliked or outright opposed for decades now—but never has a movement of this size and tenacity congealed around opposing a curriculum and the politicians seeking to implement it, until now.
Second of all, this movement is not made up simply of the “usual suspects” - socially conservative Catholics and Protestants - but rather, includes huge numbers of Indo-Canadians, Muslims, Hindus, Sikhs, and Chinese immigrants. Perhaps Wynne's sex-ed curriculum is simply the straw that broke the camel's back, one tiny step too far for tens of thousands of parents who are sick of our politics and education being dominated by discussions of sex that are often in direct conflict with the values parents seek to pass on to their children in the home.

TORONTO — A high school teacher being investigated in connection with a Twitter account that discusses alleged Islamophobic beliefs is also being connected to a blog post that discusses imposing atheist beliefs on students.
A now-deleted Twitter account with the handle @firstatheist used a photo that former students say appears to be of Michael Marshall, an English teacher at Richmond Green Secondary School in Richmond Hill. The York Region District School Board said it was made aware of the Twitter account Thursday and Marshall was told about its investigation.
The board said it is looking into whether the account may have been hacked, or is an impersonation. (more...)

|Dutiful Political Puppet?|
We had been kissing but I didn’t particularly want to have sex with him and I think I told him that – although we were both pretty drunk so I’m not completely sure if I did or even if he heard me. Either way, we ended up having sex and I woke the next morning with a sore head and plenty of regrets. Back then, I (like many other women) put the whole evening down to experience. Stuff happens, move on.
Today though, according to the Director of Public Prosecutions, Alison Saunders, I am a rape victim and that drunken horny bloke is an alleged rapist. Even though neither of us thinks a crime has taken place, Ms Saunders is adamant that she wants justice to be done in the wake of every drunken sexual encounter that turns sour the morning after the night before.
She has instructed the Crown Prosecution Service that unless a man can prove a woman has consented, and unless he can be sure that she was not too drunk to give that consent, then he is effectively guilty of rape until proven innocent in a court of law.
Yet this is the very same Ms Saunders who yesterday defended her decision not to prosecute former MP Greville Janner, 86, on 22 serious child abuse charges involving nine victims because, it is claimed, the Labour peer is incapacitated by advanced dementia, despite no court assessment of his health ever having taken place.

“I’ve been doing the work for support for LGBTQ people for a long time, for actually the 28 years I’ve been in the board,” Joan Grundy, retiring vice-principal at St. Mary's Catholic High School in Kitchener, told CTV News.
Grundy admitted to CBC News that she had been in a lesbian relationship for about a decade during this time but had presented herself as a faithful Catholic so she could maintain her job with its position of influence.
Grundy, who has a Masters degree in theological studies with a concentration in counselling, has penned an account of her explicit rejection of the Catholic teaching on same-sex attraction in a book released this month titled A Deepening Life. (more...)

Mark Watts tells RT’s Sputnik about ‘Britain’s biggest scandal’
Watts' segment begins at 12:55. This will never appear on the BBC.
In a news release, the Peel District School Board explains that it has sent a letter to parents explaining the "myths" about the new controversial sex curriculum as the board moves to implement it as scheduled for the school year 2015-16. This is the kind of the public relations battle that will only intensify in order to convince parents that the 2015 radical sex curriculum is needed and harmless. The government has launched a similar advertising campaign and have also put out a government Myth vs. Fact document.
The board statement tries to reassure parents by making four major points: that "the updated curriculum WILL NOT encourage or teach students how to engage in masturbation, oral sex or anal sex;" it "WILL NOT teach students to reveal or touch private body parts on themselves or others;" it "WILL NOT teach students to become homosexual," and lastly it "WILL NOT encourage students to consent to sexual activities."
The are a number of problems with these misleading statements. (more...)
Len Lewis doesn't think much about Ontario's new sex education curriculum.
He calls it despicable, disgusting and abhorrent.
The Echo Bay resident wants the first update to the province's health and physical education curriculum in 17 years stopped before its launch in classrooms in September.
“Just stop this legislation,” said Lewis.
Lewis was one of about 50 opponents to the new curriculum who rallied on Bay Street on Sunday afternoon.
The retired welder at Inco is concerned that children will receive “explicit” instruction about sex acts.
Anal and oral sex will be discussed in Grades 7 and 8, as well as contraception and preventing sexually transmitted diseases. Students learn about gender identity and sexual orientation in Grade 3.
“I don't think that young children who are very open and gullible should be subject to this curriculum,” said the grandfather of four. “I think it's terrible.” (more...)

|Director of Public Prosecutions|
The legal U-turn came just days after The Mail on Sunday revealed that the Labour peer had made secret visits to Parliament despite medics claiming he was too ill to be questioned by police.
Critics insisted Alison Saunders could not continue as the head of the Crown Prosecution Service when she had made such a catastrophic mistake over the high-profile case of the 86-year-old, who is accused of molesting boys in care.
She provoked fury among police chiefs when she ruled in April that Lord Janner could not be prosecuted because of his dementia, despite detectives collecting enough evidence to charge him with 22 offences against nine victims in the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s.
Mrs Saunders, who earns £205,000 a year, strongly defended her decision – but an external QC was drafted in to reconsider the case after a challenge from alleged victims.
Last night it emerged the CPS has accepted the review’s decision to let the case be heard in court. (more...)

An independent QC is to overturn the controversial decision that Lord Janner should not face justice over a string of paedophile allegations.
The sensational U-turn by prosecutors means a court will now hear historical child sex claims against the disgraced former Labour MP.
A top barrister, who has spent several weeks examining the decision not to put Janner on trial, has concluded the allegations should be heard even though the peer has severe dementia.
The QC is said to have serious reservations about the original decision not to charge the 86-year-old and is to recommend to Director of Public Prosecutions Alison Saunders that it be overturned. Barring a last minute change of mind, his ruling – due to be made public next week – paves the way for the evidence against Janner to be tested in a criminal court – in a procedure known as a ‘trial of the facts’ – even if he is too unwell to attend.
Never before has such a high-profile Crown Prosecution Service decision been overturned following a review.
The development will pile pressure on Mrs Saunders, who has suffered a torrid two months amid questions over her handling of the Janner affair. She is expected to face renewed calls from critics to consider her position. (more...)

|Yusuf Talukder serves as principal of an after-school tutorial program he owns.|
The government plays no regulatory role over tutoring programs, nor does it license or accredit the 1,000 private schools in the province, which serve more than 110,000 students, a Ministry of Education spokesman told the Star, following a Star investigation that revealed a convicted sex offender was directing an after-school tutorial program in Toronto.
Because independent schools operate as private businesses, all disciplinary action is handled between the principal and the teacher — behind closed doors.
Yusuf Ali Talukder, 52, is working as a principal at the after-school Dhaka Learning Centre in Scarborough. Talukder spent six months in jail, was listed on the sex offender registry and was banned from public schools after he was convicted of sexually assaulting a female student under the age of 14. He denies committing the assault.
But he was able to return to his role in the tutorial program because he ran it as a private business — which means it lies outside the jurisdiction of provincial education authorities.
Critics claim the Talukder case has unveiled major flaws in Ontario’s education sector, including a complete lack of regulation over private tutorial programs and weak oversight for private schools. (more...)

Re: Secular society means we leave religion out of education, Sunday Forum by Paul Spiers, June 14.
In the public square, the religious point of view is just as important as the secular point of view.
To many people of faith, secular society is not part of the solution, but part of the problem. We can see results of theworld’s view of sex all around us. The world has reaped a bumper crop of unwanted pregnancies and people who have sexually transmitted diseases.
In contrast, many religions teach sex before marriage is wrong. By following this teaching, people can avoid unwanted pregnancies and contacting sexually transmitted diseases. (more...)

|The ring, led by politics teacher Michael Densham, pictured, was sensationally exposed in 2004|
An exclusive institution, with Edwardian architecture and picturesque games pitches, it admitted only the brightest boys, and was rightly famed for creative, sporting and academic prowess.
The ranks of ‘Old Gowers’, as alumni are known, included a host of the great and good, from athlete Roger Bannister to film star Dirk Bogarde and the celebrated mountaineer Chris Bonnington.
Despite its fee-paying status, UCS was (and still is) run according to a liberal philosophy that included a statutory ban on religious education and a refusal to acknowledge, in any formal way, differences of ethnic or cultural background.
This made it the favourite public school of the local area’s social elite, who — in time-honoured tradition — were happy to overlook any principled opposition to private education when it came to the treatment of their own children.
The roster of pupils duly contained the offspring of many Labour grandees, including both sons of the party’s former Prime Minister, Harold
A few years later, UCS would educate the likes of Tristram Hunt, the son of a Labour peer (and now Shadow Education Secretary), Jonathan Freedland, the Left-wing commentator, and Ian Katz, a former Guardian journalist who is editor of BBC2’s Newsnight.
Yet behind its historic red-brick facade there lay a troubling secret. For throughout this heady era, the UCS staff room was home to four paedophile teachers, who used their positions of authority to prey on teenage pupils. (more...)

Yusuf Ali Talukder, principal of the Dhaka Learning Centre, was sentenced to six months in jail in 2010 for sexually assaulting a female student under the age of 14.
He was found guilty of putting his hand inside the student’s bra, squeezing her breast on multiple occasions and rubbing the zipper of her pants during class, according to the court decision.
Talukder, 52, pleaded not guilty, and in an interview last week he told the Star he was innocent.
The Dhaka Learning Centre is an afterschool tutorial program owned by Talukder.
Because it is a private business, provincial education authorities had no power to stop the principal, who is on the sex offender registry, from walking out of jail and back into his office. (more...)
The new sex education curriculum for Ontario elementary schools is set to begin in September with minimal parental/community input on the choice of material. Certainly there are commendable elements within the curriculum. At the same time many seem unaware of the explicit details and of the grades in which they will be presented. Much the same curriculum from the McGuinty government in 2010 was withdrawn after only three days in the face of vigorous opposition.
Positive elements in the new curriculum include teaching the proper names for bodily parts, warning against sexting, the danger of online predators and that “no” can be an appropriate response to requests for sexually activity. Yet explicit teaching on topics like masturbation, anal and oral sex, vaginal lubrication and the idea that there are in fact six “gender identities” are by no means necessary for these age groups. Another concern is with the rise in teen pregnancies. While numerous socio-economic factors are involved, teen pregnancies topped the country in New Brunswick, rising almost 40 per cent from 2006 to 2010 following the introduction of a similar curriculum.

PETERBOROUGH, Ontario, June 24, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Concerned Parents of Peterborough met again June 19 outside of MPP Jeff Leal’s office to protest the proposed changes to Ontario’s sex-ed curriculum.
The group’s numbers have continued to rise and the number of protestors has more than doubled since last month’s protest. The group met during regular business hours and still managed to draw 46 members. Protestors displayed placards that read, “Parents are first educators, not politicians!”, “Let Kids be Kids!” and “Teaching consent, did you get ours?”
This new group is not alone in their concerns over the Liberals’ new sex-ed curriculum, which will be released in the fall. There have been three protests at Queen’s Park where thousands of people gathered to voice their concerns to politicians. There have also been protests in Sarnia, Windsor, and London.
“Politicians and the media are trying to ignore concerns and downplay the vast number of parents opposed to this curriculum,” said Laura Van Bakel, director of Concerned Parents of Peterborough. “However, they will be disappointed if they think we will stop fighting. We are determined to get this sex-ed agenda out of our schools regardless of how long it may take.” (more...)

Ontario parents know by now that several Catholic boards in the province have voted against the idea to delay the implementation of the controversial sex curriculum contained in the 2015 Health and Physical Education document. Catholic trustees, board directors and lawyers have told both teachers and parents that the curriculum cannot be delayed. It's the duty of school boards to implement it this fall and follow government directives. This is not true, but it's the official message being given.
Here's why the message about not delaying the curriculum isn't true. Everyday for Life Canada got a copy of a letter sent to parents on June 18, 2015, by the director of education for the French schools Rejean Sirois, telling them that the 2015 Health and Physical Education document will not not be implemented in their schools until February 2016. This is a bit of good news for all parents opposed to the sex curriculum, but why are they allowed to wait until next year and not the Catholic English boards or the public boards? (more...)

While serving a 16-month jail sentence for luring a former student, a former Saskatoon teacher will likely lose his teaching certificate.

On May 15, Kennard was sentenced to 16 months in jail followed by two years’ probation after a Saskatoon judge found him guilty of using Facebook in an attempt to lure a 16-year-old former student while working as a teacher in Saskatoon.
Kennard testified that he was in a troubled relationship and heavily using marijuana when he unknowingly exchanged messages with a police officer posing as the boy on Facebook. Kennard asked the officer, who he thought was his former student, if he could perform oral sex on him; when the undercover officer said no, the ex-teacher asked for a picture of the boy's genitals.

Concerned Ontarians who come from all walks of life, have been attending protests to make their concerns known, but they are all dismissed by the Premier as "homophobic" and by Education Minister Sandal as "misinformed".

LifeSite is being sued over its coverage of an LGBT-themed teachers' conference. Their reporter's audio from the event included a self-described lesbian teacher describing "how they teach children as young as Grade Four about same-sex marriage, LGBT rights and homosexuality, basically."
I spent an entire day trying to figure out how to break it to my wife that my name appeared in a legal threat sent to LifeSite involving two recent investigative reports I wrote about two lesbian teachers promoting homosexuality to young kids in public school.
Later that evening, as my kids gobbled pizza around a picnic table and Erin and I sipped on pear and blackberry ciders, a sudden inspiration made me say jokingly: “Well darling, I’m now a full member of the LifeSiteNews team!”
“Why is that,” she asked slowly, withdrawing the drink from her lips.
“Because I’ve been named in a legal threat for my reporting,” I said with a bit of a forced laugh. “You know, you aren’t really a full member of the team until you’ve been mentioned in a potential lawsuit.”

A senior Labour MP has told Channel 4 News his party's leadership "failed to act quickly and efficiently" to suspend Lord Janner, despite his private written warning to Ed Miliband sent last year.
The peer was suspended by the Labour party on 16 April, when the director of public prosecutions announced that while there was sufficient evidence to charge him with multiple counts of child abuse, a prosecution could not go ahead due to the "severity" of his illness.
However, on 6 October 2014, Rochdale MP Simon Danczuk wrote to Ed Miliband, then leader of the Labour party, warning him of "stomach-churning" allegations faced by Lord Janner.
In the letter seen by Channel 4 News, Mr Danczuk explained that he had been "visited by three senior officers from Leicestershire Police" and that the alleged abuse that was disclosed to him in relation to Lord Janner's case was "stomach-churning". He called on Ed Miliband to "suspend Lord Janner from the Labour party at the earliest opportunity". (more...)
