Canadian Catholic leaders say "bullying" is a "distraction"

| Reddit | Tumblr | Digg | FARK

It's sad, but as Gaius wrote earlier, what in God's name has happened to Canada?  From the Toronto Sun:
Ontario Catholics are pushing back against the provincial Liberal government’s plan to force them to accept Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) in their schools.

Thomas Cardinal Collins, the Archbishop of Toronto and President of the Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario, said in a statement issued Monday that all people, of faith or not, should be concerned by this action.

If it happens to us, it can happen to you on this and other issues,” Collins said.
He's right, you know.  If they try to stop the gay kids from killing themselves, some day they may stop your child from committing suicide as well. And we all know how upset Catholic leaders get when someone tries to stop them from harming children.

Check out the insouciance, and near contempt, that this Catholic leader has for the very notion of bullying:
Marino Gazzola, president of the Ontario Catholic School Trustees’ Association, said the government’s Accepting Schools Act now emphasizes gay bullying over all other grounds that a student might be intimidated, harassed or physically assaulted by peers.

”In our view, the word itself is a distraction,” Gazzola said.

When asked if he believed the word “gay” was a distraction, Gazzola said, ”It can be. It just it takes away from the entire focus of our message which is the safety of all the students.”
Im sorry, but when you aid and abet the rape of small children, and refuse to come clean to this day, you have zero moral authority to say anything about anything.
