So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Toronto v. Tolerance: Catholics need not apply?

According to the Toronto Catholic School Board chair, the city council of that oh-so-tolerant town has left itself open to a charge of anti-Catholic bias by rejecting an appointee because of her Catholic views.
TORONTO, April 2, 2015 ( -- Two Toronto Catholic trustees have accused Toronto city hall of anti-Catholic bias after councilors voted 20-17 on March 31 to bar Catholic school trustee Angela Kennedy from the Toronto public health board because of her Catholic views.

Kennedy and Toronto Catholic school board chair Mike Del Grande are backed up by their board, which released a statement April 2 objecting to the city’s “discriminatory treatment” of Kennedy. “Ms. Kennedy has been unfairly vilified for her personal views on matters relating to her position as an elected Catholic Trustee, which in our opinion is a flagrant violation of her religious freedoms,” Del Grande stated in the release.

Kennedy told LifeSiteNews that news of her selection – the first time in 13 years a Catholic trustee had been appointed to fill the single school board seat on the 13-member public health board – was leaked to the media “a couple of days ago.”

Councilor Joe Mihevc, chair of the public health board, then took the “unprecedented” step of introducing a motion Monday night to replace her with public school trustee Chris Glover, she said.
According to reports, Kennedy is pro-life and has voted against using schools to offer the HPV vaccination.

While researchers aren't certain that grievances like these stem from direct Gardasil side effects (Cervarix hasn't been around long enough to amass complaints), "it's critical to note that more than 70 healthy young girls have died from a neurological reaction that occurred soon after getting Gardasil," says Harper.—The HPV Vaccine: Risks vs. Rewards. 2012.
