Rights violated

June is the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ. Recently, the Toronto Catholic District School Board passed a motion to fly the rainbow flag and celebrate Pride month in June. We believe the vote was wrong on moral and legal grounds.

Conservative MP Cathay Wagantall’s bill to ban sex-selective abortions in Canada was defeated in the House of Commons by a 248-82 margin June 2.

Worthy fight

RE: Lindsay Shepherd carries on fight for free speech (May 11):

Ms. Shepherd innocently “fell into” her situation at Wilfred Laurier University. Her mother suggested recording the meeting that she had been mysteriously called to by her supervisors. Otherwise, Ms. Shepherd would have left the meeting feeling guilty of misdirecting students on gender ideology. Instead, she blew open for all to see one of the biggest crimes of our time. 

The latest annual report from Development and Peace reveals the financial toll that COVID-19 has taken on the Canada’s Catholic development and aid organization.

The Supreme Court of Canada has reaffirmed that secular courts should not be making theological decisions.

Land rights

Re: As Israeli-Palestinian violence escalates, Christian leaders voice concern (May 16):

The Pride flag will be flying over Ontario Catholic schools in a number of jurisdictions, including Toronto, in the month of June.

Great theologian

Just read in The Catholic Register that the theologian Hans Küng passed away. It may have been a small piece, but it was respectful.

Wonderful work

Re: Sisters turn crisis pregnancy into storybook ending (April 4):

What an awesomely uplifting story your YSN writer, Angelica Vecchiato, wrote describing the wonderful work the Sisters of Life are performing: aiding women facing an unexpected pregnancy.

Total contradiction

Re: Faithful find worship restrictions harsh (April 11):

It’s true that government COVID restrictions put on religious groups have been harsh. In Toronto, the Catholic Church has co-operated in following COVID protocols. Despite this, our churches have been given stringent restrictions not applied to liquor, beer and big box stores. Why?
