New Blog on Sidebar.: Reclaim the Rainbow Toronto.
Will update this post later.
This blog is about a recent inclusivity bill before the Toronto District Catholic School Board, which will attempt to teach tolerance for all groups and cultures; As is usually the case, "tolerance" means "you will accept this or else."
In particular, this means that we are to accept the Gay/:Lesbian/Transgender/etc alliances. Recently, a group called the Gay Straight Alliance jumped the gun on this bill and gave a presentation, in the gym, of my daughter's high school. They stood on the stage of a school that was founded by nuns brought over by Bishop Charbanel, built on land donated by Sir John Elmsley to teach the daughters of Catholic faithful the Faith, and told the girls there assembled that the church was wrong in its teaching, that the Bible was written a long time ago by some paranoid people and is out of touch with the reality of today; that not only is it false that gay couples don't make good parents, but studies indicate they make even better parents than straight people, and so on. There was no counter point of view explained. .
Fortunately, we have taught our daughter to see through this, but her friends can't.
The fact that this was done before the bill was passed, and that the teachers and principal put them in an assembly before the entire student body is troubling. Someone jumped the gun, before the amendment was even approved, and asked, asked for, or allowed this group to tell unchallenged lies to these students about the Faith they were supposed to be learning. This new blog hopes to help get the truth out there.
