The Globe and Mail reports:
Ontario's Liberal government says it is not prepared to abandon the sex-ed component of a pending anti-bullying law, despite criticism by some religious leaders Tuesday that it is an affront to traditional family values.
Christian, Jewish and Muslim representatives say they agree school bullies must be stopped, but they can't condone a requirement under the legislation proposed to deal with it that schools promote sexual tolerance through gay clubs.
“To force, especially Christian classrooms or schools, to have homosexual clubs would of course be an affront to their family values,” Charles McVety, of the Institute for Canadian Values, told a joint news conference.
“And what does this have to do with bullying? Nothing.”
Mr. McVety, who led the fight against the Liberals' last attempt to update the province's sex-ed curriculum, says Premier Dalton McGuinty is using the problem of bullying to advance “his radical sex education agenda.”
The religious leaders say that agenda is driven by gay activists.
“When you are forcing teachers, Christian teachers, Jewish teachers, Muslim teachers, to teach things that are contrary to the values that they hold, to teach that there are six genders and that you are not attached to the gender of your anatomy, do you not find that that may be an offence to a lot of Ontarians?” asked Mr. McVety.
Rabbi Mendel Kaplan of Chabad Flamingo Synagogue in Toronto said he also believes that parts of the anti-bullying bill aimed at making schools inclusive and tolerant of gay lifestyles are offensive to many families.
“This legislation proposes that children be indoctrinated to reject their parents' faith and their parents' family values, and that's an affront,” said Mr. Kaplan.
“What nobody here in good conscience can support is a law that calls on people of faith to abandon the beliefs that we consider sacred, all in the name of political correctness.”
Let us be clear: the issue is not really bullying. This is a poll-tested bit of emotional manipulation used by the radical, sexual revolutionists used by them to slip radical changes past the public and to intimidate the conservative opposition.
The result of this policy is going to be our schools basically doing what the schools in the old Soviet Union did: indoctrinating the children with anti-family, anti-religious propaganda so as to turn them against their parents' belief systems.
This is evil and dispicible. Dalton McGuinty is a cynical, compromised, venal politician who should be disciplined by his Church. Only the cowardice of Roman Catholic bishops allows such a man to trawl for votes by subtly flaunting his Catholicism at election time and then turn against the Church (and all religious people) when it suits his political agenda.
Protestant leaders are no better. Where is the EFC? Where are leading Evangelical pastors and leaders of major Evangelical institutions? I'd say that we get the government we deserve, but our children do not deserve to be authority figures in positions of trust.
Vulnerable, confused children will be encouraged to be "gay" through this program and, as a result, we will see increases in depression, sexual experimentation, vulnerability to adult sexual predators, drug abuse and suicide. The children are collateral damage in the Revolution.
The Marxists are winning without firing a shot.
