Leslie Scrivener's war on the Catholic Church in Toronto

Leslie ScrivenerLeslie Scrivener is a reporter with the Toronto Star, Canada's version of Hell's Bible (a.k.a., The New York Times). Has there ever been an article by Scrivener or the Star in living memory that dealt honestly with the faith? Do they ever interview anyone other than dissenters?

Let's just take a little look; but sorry no links, I won't be responsible for any more hits than necessary to this failing media broadsheet.

Reformist priest refused permission to speak to Toronto-area educators on Catholic property. He's now speaking at Sheridan College 

Well Leslie, the Archdiocese of Toronto implemented a protocol recently that all speakers must have either faculties if a priest (that means they're in union with a bishop) or a letter in good standing from their Ordinary (that's a bishop) if a layman or woman to speak on issues within the Church. What is so shocking about ensuring that those who speak on Church property preach what the Church preaches. When I first saw this policy I said to myself, "well, that's an interesting way to keep Michael Voris out of Toronto's church halls" but then again, the knife cuts both ways. It could keep out many of those whom you fawn over such as the ex-Anglican, Roman Catholic Nun, then married mother and grandmother and now lesbian Anglican priestess who spent most of her career in Toronto corrupting Catholic school children with her heterodox views as we will read about three paragraphs below.

Toronto Catholics express their hope for Pope Francis - one word at a time

Blessings, peace, love, reformation, change, equality, gender, sexuality, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I guess she didn't visit the Oratory. Enough said.

Catholic parents disgusted with by letter sent from parish priest containing provocative questions.

This matter was dealt with a few weeks ago. I'm disgusted that these people re referred to as "Catholic parents."

Former Catholics say rigid church forced them to leave

I could be snarly and say, "don't let the door hit you on the way out" or that "it's okay, the biological solution is fixing the problem" but we really do need to regret this. These Catholics have not been fully formed in the faith. They are protestant in their belief and this is a sad fact for us. Our Pope Benedict XVI wrote of a "smaller church" though it would be "holier" as a result. While this is happening slowly and may come to be more explicitly  it will not be nice. It will be through mass desertion, apostasy and persecution. We are seeing it now in many parts of the world and most shockingly, in the United State of America where even now, Catholics, have been equated on the same level by the U.S. military as the terrorists. Rather, we really don't want a smaller Church, we must want a bigger Church. We must want what Our Lord wanted, that all come to Him to be saved including Joanna Manning and Leslie Scrivener.

On the matter of Scrivener and the Toronto Star, we count four articles on the Catholic Church in just over a month; let us remove for a moment the one on Pope Francis as Scrivener's not responsible for badly catechized Catholics; not one of these is balanced; each is presented as Church bad - subject good. Not one of these columns interviews anyone that is not a dissenter.

Where's the balance? The fact is, the anti-Catholic bigotry of the Ulster of North America has never gone away, the "liberal" founders of this newspaper, notwithstanding.
