Gender Theory in Catholic Teacher Workshops???


Kevin Welbes Godin, who advocates for LGBTQ-inclusive education, will be delivering a workshop on gender and sexuality for Catholic teachers on December 6 for the Waterloo Catholic School Board Spiritual Development Day.

In addition, activists from a company called “unlearn,” whom we told you about in last week’s email on student workshops, will also be presenting.  This company teaches the scientifically invalid ideas of multiple genders as well as the notion that white children are bigoted against other races due to "unconscious bias." 

Pope Francis has declared gender ideology “demonic”. As for the theory of unconscious bias which teaches that white people are racist by nature, it is ineffective in dealing with racism since racism against one group should not be used to fight racism against another.

If the school board is organizing such workshops for teachers, can student workshops be far behind?


  1. Please write to the Director of Education and the Trustee Chair at the Waterloo Catholic Board and say that under no circumstances are groups that advocate for gender theory to be presenting workshops to the board.
  2. Ask for a retraction of the invitations to Kevin Welbes Godin and “unlearn” to present at the board’s Spiritual Development Day on December 6.
  3. Please let us know that you have contacted the Director and the Chair by emailing [email protected] or leaving a message at 416-763-7233.

    Any religion that promotes GOD’s WORD over their own secular beliefs is the work of the devil. And it should be known that in the simplest terms that when you are born you are given a sex of a boy or girl. If you want to change you sexul identy then that’s a choice and not a born instinct. You are not created that way and it is a curse against nature. And those who oppose it should be able to have a right to express their opinion and not accept this kind of life style as normal or have to compromise their beliefs just to pacify a non gender’s identity crisis. They are non genders by choice and they dont have an identity.except for a bunch of letters trying to describe a bunch of Queers. If they want to be Queer then they should claim the name that suits them and we should address them as much. But when a person is made to except something against their will is what I call trying to silence or control another right to chose for themselves What’s right for them and their family. That’s what freedom is all about. Knowing the each side of the coin is different and respecting the thoughts and concerns and beliefs in what is right is a judgement call for each party so we can live in peace with ourselves and those that disagree. And to conclude, There should be a third bathroom for the Queers. No prejudice intended for my words nor do I hate anyone different that me. Choice is our freedom and everyone should be able to choose.

    In the 21st century, it’s a shame to have a theory overshadow scientific facts! A theory that’s more of a social experiment, which influenced the minds and bodies of several future generations of minor children.

    No to promoting gender identity theory to children and vulnerable victims. It does NOT reduce suicide rates!
