Canadian Bishops Lament Catholic Teachers Group’s Intent to Join ‘LGBTQ Activism’ Parade

Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto and other Canadian bishops have recently criticized the decision of Ontario’s English Catholic Teachers Association (OECTA) to participate in the World Pride parade later this month in Toronto, according to the National Post.
