First They Went after Gay Children...
Now they are going after their parents and supporters...
The other day I wrote a post about how some Catholic school boards would not allow their students to take part in a survey about homophobia.
And I pointed out how the British were doing a better job than we were to try to stop bullying.
In large part because a survey by the gay organization Stonewall, had shown how bad the bully problem was:
A survey of 1,145 gay and lesbian secondary school pupils last summer by Stonewall found that almost two-thirds had been victims of homophobic bullying.
Stonewall's survey found that 41% of respondents reported physical attacks, 17% had received death threats and 12% had been sexually assaulted.
And what needed to be done:
"Gay [students] need to know that they are not alone, that it is all right to talk about it and that it is perfectly normal. The potential bullies need to know that homophobia will not be accepted, that all of us have an equal right to live lives free from bullying...."
So now the British government IS doing something about it.
Meanwhile.... here in Canada where some studies suggest the bully problem is even WORSE.....we can't even get a comprehensive survey done. Because some school boards want to put the dictates of an old homophobic Pope before the interests of Canadian children.
If you want a good idea of how insane this hatred is, just check out how a Canadian union's decision to contribute to PFLAG.
A wonderful group of straight and gay people who try to help gay kids in all kinds of ways. And always get the biggest round of applause at gay parades.
Was greeted by the religious hatemongers.
A homosexual activist lobby has thanked the Canadian Auto Workers Union (CAW), for a donation of $25,000 Cn.
A media release from PFLAG Canada (formerly the Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) says the grant was provided through the CAW's Social Justice Fund to help finance the homosexual lobby group's efforts in Canada's schools to legitimize homosexuality.
Good for the CAW Social Justice Fund. And from what foul cave of depravity do these rabid flying monkeys....and fetus fetishists... come from?
And from what diseased corner of their simian brains did they ever get the crazy idea that young gay people have to LEGITIMIZE who they are? And who they love. In short their humanity.
To them .... or anybody else for that matter. Huh? Wot?
When what we should all be doing is helping young people to become happy productive citizens WHOEVER they are.
You know it makes me really sad to see how Canada, thanks to the evil Cons, is losing its reputation in the world as a progressive country. And where once we led the way when it came to human rights.... now we don't even follow.
But if we can't even protect our school children...from bullies, violence, sexual assault, and the bigotry spawned by religious intolerance. And other countries are doing more to save their children than we are.
What kind of country are we becoming?
And if we want to reclaim OUR Canada and save our beautiful Canadian values.
Shouldn't we start by saving the children?
