Catholic School Board Compares Gays to Nazis
Gay-Straight Alliances are wonderful student groups that promote tolerance and safer schools.
You can find them in schools right across Canada. The Ontario government and many educators think they are a useful tool for fighting bullying and teen suicides.
But the Halton Catholic District School Board has banned them, because in the words of its Chair, Alice Anne LeMay:
“We don’t have Nazi groups either... Gay-Straight Alliances are banned because they are not within the teachings of the Catholic Church."
Can you believe that? Comparing decent gay and straight kids to Nazi scum. What an ignorant woman. What a hideous bigot.
But then what do you expect eh?
When the leader of her ghastly cult once belonged to a Nazi club himself...
And now presides over a church wallowing in the filth of child abuse and homophobia.
The bottom line: if Catholic School Boards aren't prepared to make schools safer for ALL children, they should get out of the school business.
Because too many kids have died of bigotry.
Too many others are being bullied.
Our Canadian children deserve better.
And enough is ENOUGH...
