Citizens’ rights advocate threatens education ministry with human rights case over ‘slurs’

VICTORIA, Feb. 27, 2012 (CultureGuard) — A citizens’ rights advocacy group, Culture Guard, has asked Education Minister George Abbott to ban words it says demean and incite hatred against students, parents and other stakeholders who oppose having the homosexual political agenda propagandized in schools.

The offensive words include “homophobia”, “homophobe”, “homophobic” and “heterosexist”.

“The words are just made-up propaganda words,” says Culture Guard president Kari Simpson. “They may sound pseudo-medical or pseudo-psychological, but they aren’t found in any recognized medical, psychological or psychiatric dictionaries.

“Their only purpose is propaganda: once the sex activists hang a hateful label on parents or others who don’t want children brainwashed in school, they can more easily persuade the public, the media, and politicians not to listen to fact-based arguments for protecting students from political propaganda.”

In a letter to Abbott, Mrs. Simpson cites the up-coming “Pink Shirt Day”, which will be observed in many BC schools, as an ideal time for the minister to ban the use of such “bully” words in official documents and programs.

“Failure to stand against this anti-democratic strategy, which denies civil Canadians rights that are explicitly protected within the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, will result in a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal,” her letter states.

Simpson notes that many homosexual practices are provable vectors for diseases which are at epidemic proportions among homosexuals, and which cost the public billions of dollars—but are “100% preventable” by behaviour change.

Under the guise of “anti-bullying”, sex activist campaigns seek to “celebrate” in schools (quoting a recent BCTF graphic, handed out at a conference where teachers were coached on how to implement the “teachers’ guide” Making Space)

One example cited was a report published by a provincially-funded community health organization that serve Vancouver’s homosexual community, which stated that throat cancer caused by sexual practices common among homosexual men is now a greater threat than lung cancer from smoking.

Another web-site funded by the government gives kids “how-to” information on “fisting”—a physically dangerous practice common among homosexuals. And her letter stated that a pro-gay, Drag Queen sex activist who “sponsors” a northern BC school’s “Gay-Straight Alliance” club gave the same kind of information to students.

Re:    Eradication of the Slurs: Homophobe, Homophobia, Homophobic, Heterosexism, Heterosexist

Attention Mr. Minister:

The opportunity is before us to make “Pink Shirt Day” truly meaningful—to convince students to end the use of all slurs, including hateful, harmful, and demeaning “bully” words like “homophobe”, “homophobia”, “homophobic” and “heterosexist”—which are all invented propaganda words. Although they sound pseudo-medical and pseudo-psychological, they are not to be found in any recognized medical, psychological or psychiatric dictionaries.

As you are aware, words like these are verbal weapons, used by some radical teachers and sex activists against students or their parents (and others) who hold constitutionally-protected views and opinions about homosexuality, sexual promiscuity and other defined or yet-to-be-defined sexual identities. These words are typically used by sex activists to demean and promote contempt for those who seek to have a mature, informed and long-overdue discussion about the growing and costly implications—to both our health-care and to our social services—associated with homosexuality and sexual promiscuity.

It is long past time to eradicate the use of such contemptuous labels. And when official documents and/or statements make use of them, it gives official sanction to a fascist strategy of co-opting authority to silence dissenting opinions.

Failure to stand against this anti-democratic strategy, which denies civil Canadians rights that are explicitly protected within the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, will result in a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal.

I trust you are aware of the growing and troubling numbers, among those 25 years of age and under, relating to transmission and proliferation of sexually-transmitted diseases. As Education Minister, you have a duty to inform students, for their protection, about the serious implications and costs to health and social services that are a direct result of dangerous and unhealthy sexual practices. I, like most Canadians, support the right of others to engage in relationships of their choosing; but the factual reality is that some of these practices are now costing me, and other Canadians, billions upon billions of dollars in health-care and other related costs. This is where it becomes my business, and that of other Canadians, to start questioning the irresponsible behaviours of individuals that are over-burdening our social services. It is also where I and other Canadians, including our elected representatives, must look critically at the purveyors of false and/or misleading information, and how this propaganda is spreading through our civil society and contributing to goals contrary to those mandated by the School Act, specifically:

WHEREAS it is the goal of a democratic society to ensure that all its members receive an education that enables them to become literate, personally fulfilled and publicly useful, thereby increasing the strength and contributions to the health and stability of that society;

AND WHEREAS the purpose of the British Columbia school system is to enable all learners to become literate, to develop their individual potential and to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to contribute to a healthy, democratic and pluralistic society and a prosperous and sustainable economy;

. [Emphases mine]

I was recently engaged in an exchange of correspondence with a man who has contracted AIDS. This individual’s sexual practices included sodomy. I trust you are aware, as BC’s Education Minister, that in Canada, the category of men having sex with men (“MSM”) is vastly over-represented in the new infection statistics from the Centres for Disease Control. MSM is, in fact, the primary vector in North America for a number of costly sexually transmitted diseases.

This individual, in addition to all the medical costs to tax-payers related to his treatment, is also collecting two government pensions, including a federal disability pension. He is also receiving a government subsidy for housing because of his 100% preventable disease. He likes to live comfortably, so one of his recent accommodations costs $1,800.00 per month. He shares this with his “buddy”—another man collecting the same pensions, due to his own AIDS status. He also advised me that he expects hard-working Canadians to pay for “all his expenses.”

I trust that, as Education Minister, you are aware that among the homosexual male population, throat cancer caused by common practices among that group is now more likely than cancer caused by smoking! Here is one warning that a provincially-funded community health organization called Health Initiative for Men, which, in addition to creating hard-core homosexual porn with tax-payers’ money, also provides health advice to homosexual men, the caution states:

Too Much of A Good Thing Can Make You Sick

The ‘good thing’ in this case being oral sex. Yes boys, a new research finding has officially stated that giving too much head is more likely to cause throat cancer than smoking! Stating the obvious; we love giving our partner’s penis and ass some loving, perhaps more so than our straight counterparts, and with more ‘partners’ at that. This means then that the gay population is at higher risk of getting throat cancer, especially when you consider the fact that the more people you perform oral sex on, the greater the odds of you contracting an oral infection which leads to the cancer.

Then we have the provincially funded youth resource “Planet Ahead” which, aided by “Luci Lubricant” and “Condom man”, is invited into schools to alter/form the “values” of 12-15 year olds. Like government-funded Planned Parenthood (which changed its name to Options for Sexual Health after the link between Planned Parenthood’s founder, Margaret Sanger, and Adolf Hitler was exposed, along with her racist advocacy of “eliminating weeds from the human garden”), these groups promote to students the liberty to freely “express themselves” in any sexual manner they wish.

“Won’t get Weird”, a youth-oriented web-site funded in part by we tax-payers, and operated by Options for Sexual Health/Planned Parenthood, gives kids “important” information, such as “giving blow jobs with braces on”, while making mock of parents.

Another government funded site called “Spiderbytes” gives information to teenagers on “fisting”—how-to, etc. This information on fisting parallels information given to a Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club at a public school in northern BC by its “drag queen” sponsor.

One alarming aspect of all this sex talk is that the reality of the financial costs and health hazards associated with irresponsible and unnatural sexual conduct and/or behaviours is utterly absent from the discussion—and there is no opportunity for debate. It’s all one-sided propaganda… and lies.

Respected BC Court of Appeal judge, Justice Mary Southin, addressing the issues of promoting homosexuality in the public education system, wrote:

When there is a sea-change in the accepted wisdom of a society, those who have adhered to the attitudes of the past, what I call the “old wisdom”, in a very short space of time may find themselves denigrated by adherents of the “new wisdom”.

The slurs used by adherents of the so-called “new wisdom” have been shown to be factually foolish; what is more, they wilfully endanger the health and well-being of our children and youth. Further, the monetary costs to our society by “celebrating” medically unsafe sexual practices are prohibitive.

Defaming and denigrating those whose wisdom and insight has stood the test of time—and continues, provably, to do so—must not be tolerated. As Minister of Education, you will also be culpable for promoting hate and contempt, if you tolerate your subordinates embedding the language of hate within Ministry of Education statements and policies.  These slurs of hostility and belittlement, designed to silence anyone who would dare to initiate pertinent, fact-based discussion of important and serious matters relating to sexual practices, must cease.

Here is one of many ironic examples: in the Ministry of Education’s Safe Caring and Orderly Schools directive, schools are required to incorporate a number of policies and practices designed to “protect” all students—i.e., to teach, model and encourage socially responsible behaviours that contribute to the school community, solve problems in peaceful ways, value diversity, defend human rights, and assume responsibility, in partnership with the wider community, for resolving critical safety concerns.

This looks like a good directive—until one reads on and sees that your Ministry believes it is OK to single out those who—for religious, cultural, moral, medical and other common-sense motives—want to challenge the propaganda being published within the schools by politically-driven sex-activist teachers. And here’s where your Ministry starts to use demeaning slurs:

…work together to better understand issues such as bullying,

harassment and intimidation, racism, sexism and

homophobia

Linking this invented propaganda/slur to “harassment” and “racism” is a further insult to people whose opposition to homosexual propaganda in the schools is based upon valid medical and economic criteria, and has nothing whatsoever to do with “hate”.

You exacerbate the problem by asserting—as factual—propaganda published by self-identified homosexual and political groups like GALE (now known as Pride Education Network), and by allowing its use as “appropriate resources”. Resources like Challenging Homophobia are political, and incorporate hateful words and slurs designed to bully, demean and silence fact-based opposition to their writers’ political agendas.

Because these materials are so clearly political—in some cases acknowledged as such by their authoring groups—they have absolutely no place within our schools!

I have been appalled at the many examples I now have seen that demonstrate the cultivation of hate within our schools; newly-recruited homosexual “allies” use despicable bullying tactics to target youth, parents and other stakeholders who might dare to demand a factual and truthful account of important issues relating to homosexuality and other aberrant and unsafe sexual practices.

I recently confronted the Chair of the Vancouver School Board with these facts, after witnessing the hatred and contempt demonstrated by some students who made presentations under the guise of “questions” to the Board at two recent meetings. I am delighted to report that Ms. Bacchus subsequently refrained from using the slurs referred to herein, at the next VSB meeting. I have, for your convenience, enclosed a copy of my recent correspondence to Ms. Bacchus.

With the controversial “Pink Shirt Day” fast approaching— controversial because its original agenda of opposing all bullying has been hi-jacked by homosexual activists and the BCTF—I fervently hope you will embrace the true spirit of that day by refraining from using any slurs. Further, I request that you write to me forthwith, affirming your willingness to:

1) Eradicate from the Ministry of Education’s policies and/or directives any use of the slurs referred to herein;

2) Write to all Boards of Education, instructing them to prohibit the use of the said slurs in any policy or program.

I hope this matter can be resolved quickly, as failure to do so will certainly result in a complaint to the BC Human Rights Tribunal. I believe the documented evidence will be overwhelming as to the degree of hatred and contempt being fostered in our schools by allowing these slurs to be treated as “acceptable”. They are not.

I trust that you will act quickly to resolve this troubling situation.  I remain in my willingness to meet with you and brief you on the issues related to the BCTF and the political agenda of sex activists within BC schools.

Yours truly,

Kari D. Simpson

Re: Hateful & Contemptuous Slurs

Attention Ms. Bacchus:

As you are aware, I attended the last meeting of the Vancouver School Board on January 16, 2012. The meeting was also attended by a number of concerned parents, students and several homosexual activists and homosexual activist teachers: teachers who belong to overtly political groups like Pride Net.

I was disappointed and offended to see you allow hateful and contemptuous slurs being used that night: slurs made by trustees, teachers, students and PAC representatives. The terms “homophobe”, “homophobic” and “homophobia” are well-known hateful words, typically rooted in bigotry or ignorance and used to target, demean and bully into silence and compliance individuals and/or groups opposed to the public dissemination of false and propagandist information related to homosexuality and other allegedly “fluid” sexual determinations.

These same slurs are standard verbal weapons used by sex activists against individuals and/or groups that oppose the “celebration” of medically unsafe sexual practices like sodomy, and other associated sexual practices that are physically harmful and cost individuals their lives and their health—and which heavily burden our tax-funded healthcare system and other social services with obscene costs that are, for the most part, 100% preventable.

The groups targeted by the sex activists include members of the various faith communities (whose beliefs are protected by the Charter of Rights and Freedoms); medical and mental health professionals; politicians; and informed Canadians—all of whom are increasingly appalled at both the misinformation being disseminated by their public education system, and by the abuse of their tax dollars by individuals who engage in risky and unhealthy sexual practices, and then expect the next generation to pay for the medical and societal expenses associated with the consequences of their sexual behaviour.

As a trustee, Ms. Bacchus, you are duty-bound— by your own policies, and by law—to ensure that an environment without discrimination is cultivated within the Vancouver School District. Your lack of leadership and willful acquiesce to the bully tactics that played out that evening were nothing short of disgraceful; and perhaps only trumped by the ignorance displayed by students who spoke — students who proved only that the VSB has been providing platforms for sex activists who are demonstrably ignorant about issues involving homosexuality; but are well-trained in parroting the talking points and slurs used relentlessly by homosexual and other sex activists. Hardly something to take “pride” in.

I trust tonight’s meeting will be conducted in a more respectful and lawful manner. I believe it would be prudent for you to ensure that hateful slurs like “homophobe”, “homophobic” “homophobia” and “heterosexist” are prohibited. These words create a false impression of medical or psychological authority—but they do not appear in any recognized medical or psychological dictionaries. They are merely propaganda labels used to dismiss legitimate arguments used by opponents of the “gay agenda”. I am requesting that at the outset of tonight’s meeting, you openly declare those terms, and other similar words, to be inappropriate; and that you apologize to those in attendance for having allowed such vile and contemptuous slurs during the last meeting.

Be further advised that I have also asked the Vancouver Police to attend, to protect concerned parents who will be there. At the last VSB meeting, a videographer for Culture Guard was assaulted by one of the pro-sex activists. Your participation, by allowing nonsensical, divisive tactics like the politically-driven censure of Trustees Woo and Denike, fuelled some of the sex activists’ penchant for violence. I trust you will ensure that individuals videotaping the aggressive conduct of sex activist teachers, trustees and VSB facilitators will not have to endure further physical assault. I also trust that you will not give preferential treatment to sex activist teachers like Ms. Dumont, a member of the sex activist political organization Pride Education Network, as you did at the last public meeting. Ms. Dumont’s request not to be video-recorded at a public meeting is at best silly; she is featured on the PrideNet website, picture and all.

I remain in my willingness to meet with you and brief you on matters related to the Out In Schools program and other propaganda like Gender Spectrum—another pile of propagandist nonsense put out by the BCTF.

It is obvious from the last meeting that you and a few of the other trustees appear to be ignorant of the facts relating to the Out In Schools program. This is most troubling, as you refused my request to appear before the Board at the last meeting—an appearance that would have informed you about the Out In Schools program. Are you afraid of the facts? Do you fear public condemnation when parents find out about a program that you endorse, but claim to be ignorant of? Yes, I have the video from the last meeting which confirms both these statements.

In closing, Ms. Bacchus, be advised that I will accept your invitation to meet if you have the leadership skills and courage to extend one. I will do this, I admit, not because I have any measure of respect for you—quite the contrary—but because the students involved deserve to have their best interests protected, and their parents deserve to know the truth.

Yours truly,

Kari Simpson

President, Culture Guard

RKR launches drive to have the Baynes’
children returned to home and parents

RoadKill Radio wants answers from the Ministry of Children and Family and has become a champion for the Bayne family in their struggle to be reunited with their children.

That decision was announced on-air by Kari Simpson March 8 after Paul and Zabeth Bayne appeared in studio to relate their story—a story that included information that a Ministry official had admitted—in court—falsifying a document, and the story of a four-pound premature baby being seized in hospital, only five hours after his birth!

The Bayne’s story, as they related it to Kari Simpson and Terry O’Neill, began with an injury suffered by their new-born daughter, Bethany, in October of 2007. Zabeth Bayne had just finished feeding Bethany, she said, and had put the child onto a blanket on the floor, when their second son ran around a corner, tripped and fell onto Bethany.

The Baynes took Bethany to the hospital, where the doctor on duty said, “She’ll be fine.” …full story, must read, must act!

Parents for Democracy in Education is an organization that tries to stop the teachers’ union from forcing one-sided information about dangerous, medically unsafe sexual practices into the classroom. When PDE vice-president (and occasional RKR co-host) Ron Gray was a guest on RoadKill Radio’s March 8 broadcast, he not only outlined the organization’s strategy, he also exposed how the “downstream” media distorts coverage on this issue, on which it has already adopted a position.

March 6, PDE issued a “Parents’ Alert” informing the public of a booklet being distributed by the BC Teachers’ Federation—Gender Spectrum, published by Pride Education Network (formerly Gay And Lesbian Educators of BC). That booklet describes “gender” as “a spectrum” and “a product of the mind”; it says there is really a range of many gender identities besides male and female; and that gender identity development happens from birth to death. Furthermore, Gender Spectrum says there is no “correct” style of expression for males or females; and says “Being transgender or gender non-conforming is normal and healthy.” …full story

Parents for Democracy in Education/March 2011
Thanks to BC Parents and Teachers for Life (BCPTL), we’ve been informed of a new propaganda booklet produced by a pro-homosexual group, Pride Education Network, that is being distributed by the teachers’ union in B.C. (BCTF). This booklet, Gender Spectrum, makes unsupported claims that gender is a “continuum”, and that normal concepts of “male” and “female” are obsolete. (We have included a copy below, so you can read their one-sided presentation for yourself.)

In contrast, Dr. Leonard Sax, author of Why Gender Matters, Boys Adrift and Girls on the Edge—a medical doctor and a PhD in psychology—has published a rebuttal to such ideas in the Journal of Sex Research (his article is also included below). We call your attention to a statement on Page 9 of Dr. Sax’s peer-reviewed study, which—after a review of the medical evidence—declares:

“The available data support the conclusion that human sexuality is a dichotomy, not a continuum. More than 99.98% of humans are either male or female.”

The PEN/BCTF mis-information campaign is working through teachers in an attempt to radically change the very nature of our schools, among other things encouraging children to practice cross-dressing as “role-playing” the identities of children in one of five (or more) imaginary “intersex” genders.

Such a campaign puts the health and safety of 99.98% of students at risk, for the sake of a pro-homosexual doctrine being promoted by the BCTF.

To protect their children from this barrage of propaganda promoting acceptance of sexual perversions, parents should take steps to establish clearly their wishes for the education of their children.

Bear in mind that the United Nations’ 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights, to which Canada is a signatory, states clearly in Article 26, section 3:

Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

While there may be elements of that Declaration not all Canadians agree with, very few would argue with Article 26—and because Canada is a signatory, the Declaration’s concepts have protective force as strong as Canadian law. If your wishes are made known to your children’s school, they must be respected.

Below is a copy of a Parents’ Directive document available from BC Parents and Teachers for Life at www.bcptl.org
Use (or adapt) this document, then sign and date two printed copies of it, and deliver them to your children’s school with a request that one copy be signed by the Principal and returned to you.

Parents’ Directive regarding education of their children
BCPTL has frequently drawn attention to the necessity of parents taking steps to protect their children in the schools, given the attempts to propagate harmful propaganda in the school system. British Columbia Parents and Teachers for Life is offering what we think may be of some help: a Parents’ Directive regarding the education of their children, a document which parents can deliver to the school, making clear their wishes with regards to the education of their children.

We think that this document is written in respectful terms yet is firm in stating the parents’ wishes. We do not take credit for the idea. Others have written similar documents. We present this as reflective of issues we feel parents should be concerned about, and hopefully reflective of the tone which such a document should have.

This document, when sent to the school, does not come from British Columbia Parents and Teachers for Life. It is only of value if it is recognized as coming from the parents who deliver it. Parents are responsible for the document when they use it. British Columbia Parents and Teachers for Life cannot be responsible for its use, and our name should not be attached to it when it is sent as a parental directive.

Should you as a parent wish to change the document in any way, you are entitled to do so. You may have other concerns which you wish to express, or you may wish to change it in some other way to suit your family’s situation. Of course, we are not responsible for any changes made. It would be well, in our view, to ensure that any changes retain a respectful tone and are carefully checked for wording before the document is delivered to your children’s school. The text of our suggested directive is given below and also on the “Help for Parents” page of this website (www.bcptl.org).
Parents’ Directive regarding education of their children
To the administrative authorities of _______________________ School in??_______________ in the province of British Columbia, regarding our children, namely:
______________________________________?__ _____________________________________
________________________________________ _____________________________________
We, the undersigned, as parents, are desirous of the welfare of our children in every aspect of their lives. We are thankful for the positive opportunities for education which are available in our country, and for teachers in our schools who generously devote their time to teaching the children and youth of our nation.
Conscious that parents are the first educators of their children and that they continue to bear a prime responsibility for their education, we are communicating the following statement of wishes regarding our children’s education. We request that this statement be kept on file in the school to which we have entrusted our children, and that it be brought to the attention of all those teachers and other staff members who will be charged with dealing with our children. We respectfully issue this statement as a legal directive to school authorities and personnel.

Holding certain principles regarding the family as the basis for our own teaching of our child or children, we desire that those principles should in no way be undermined.

We hold as an ideal the concept of the family as founded on the life-long commitment of one man and one woman to one another in marriage, and on their commitment to the welfare of their children. Nothing taught to our children in the school should undermine respect for this principle.

The school should seek the welfare of all children entrusted to it, and to the best of its ability protect all from harassment; but it shall in no way teach our children that concepts of the family diverging from our ideal are equal or superior to that ideal.

We hold to the belief that human life is sacred from conception to natural death, and nothing taught to our child or children in the school should undermine respect for this principle.
We, as parents, have signed two copies of this document as an indication of our wishes. We request that you return one copy with the signature of the school principal, as an indication of his or her having received the document. We further request that any principal succeeding the present one shall likewise sign this document.

Dated and signed this _________ day of _______________, in the year ___________ at??_________________________ in the province of British Columbia.

Parents for Democracy in Education is an organization that tries to stop the teachers’ union from forcing one-sided information about dangerous, medically unsafe sexual practices into the classroom. When PDE vice-president (and occasional RKR co-host) Ron Gray was a guest on RoadKill Radio’s March 8 broadcast, he not only outlined the organization’s strategy, he also exposed how the “downstream” media distorts coverage on this issue, on which it has already adopted a position.

March 6, PDE issued a “Parents” Alert” informing the public of a booklet being distributed by the BC Teachers’ Federation—Gender Spectrum, published by Pride Education Network (formerly Gay And Lesbian Educators of BC). That booklet describes “gender” as “a spectrum” and “a product of the mind”; it says there is really a range of many gender identities besides male and female; and that gender identity development happens from birth to death. Furthermore, Gender Spectrum says there is no “correct” style of expression for males or females; and says “Being transgender or gender non-conforming is normal and healthy.”

Gray had sent a copy of Gender Spectrum to internationally-renowned expert on gender and education, Dr. Leonard Sax, author of Boys Adrift and Girls on the Edge.

Dr. Sax’s concise summary of the 62-page booklet: “Thoughtless… Badly-written… Silly.”

BCTF has also issued guides for teachers, telling them how to incorporate ideas from Gender Spectrum into the classroom. Those suggestions include students cross-dressing, or role-playing as “transgenders”—males in female bodies and/or females in male bodies.

PDE also informed parents of three pro-homosexual events planned by BCTF: a “Day of Silence” April 15; a “Day Against Homophobia” May 17; and a “Week Against Homophobia” May 17-21—and recommended that parents protect their children from BCTF brainwashing by keeping them home from school while those events are on.

On the same program segment was Doris Darvasi, president of REAL Women BC, advocating a voucher system that would allow parents to choose alternatives to the government’s tax-funded monopoly on schools.

The broadcast also played a clip of a radio interview with Gray March 7. On The World Today, CKNW host Jon McComb said “The idea that anyone gets up one morning and says, ‘I think I’ll be a homosexual’ is a ridiculous statement.”

“But it’s not a statement I ever made,” Gray said. “Jon McComb is putting words in my mouth—then calling those words ‘ridiculous’. The factual statements I made to reporter Brett Mineer—like a study published in the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association and in the International Journal of Epidemiology, that says homosexual behaviour shortens life expectancy by up to 20 years—got edited out.

“A journalist like Terry O’Neill asks where these ideas come from. They didn’t.”

Doris Darvasi interjected: “What’s being said here… is easily researchable.”

Co-host Kari Simpson queried: “Why can’t this sort of discussion take place in the ‘downstream’ media? A BCTF document acknowledges the higher prevalence of low self-esteem and emotional distress… among LGBTQ students.”

“They would say that’s because of social rejection,” co-host Terry O’Neill pointed out.

“But it’s not true,” said Gray. “In the Netherlands and Belgium, where homosexuality and even same-sex ‘marriage’ have been accepted for 15 or 20 years, the same higher incidence of psychological distress is found among homosexuals.”

Doris Darvasi summed up: “We are the primary educators of our children; nobody will ever love my child the way I love my child. I want the best for my child; so when I see things happening that are not the best—an agenda grown-ups have, and they’re using the public school system for their own agenda—I get seriously upset.

“Take your children out of school April 15,” she urged. “But you also have to sit down with them and talk to them about what’s going on in the school. That’s a parental responsibility.

“We have a lot of good teachers; but the BCTF will clamp down on them if they poke their nose up,” she added

“I would challenge the BCTF to take their own advice, and become better informed,” said Kari Simpson.
