So our second graders don’t have to learn about this.
A while back I pointed out that in Britain it was now illegal for private Catholic schools to teach that homosexual behavior was morally wrong. I argued that the homosexual agenda has never been about toleration but about forced acceptance and approval by everyone. Many howls of protest went up that I was making too much of things.
Well, now we have some more examples proving my point.
- The City Council of Philadelphia has revoked a 75-year-old ordinance letting the Boy Scouts rent a building for a $1 a year on the grounds that the Boy Scouts discriminate against homosexuals. The Scouts will now have to pay $200,000 a year for the space. You would think that a group which has aggressively worked to prevent problems that have plagued the Catholic Church would be applauded for their efforts but instead they are vilified and have had city privileges revoked in Boston, San Francisco and now Philadelphia.
- The high court in Massachusetts has ruled that parents don’t have a right to remove their children from public school homosexual indoctrination classes even on religious grounds. The court said that if they want to avoid the classes they have to leave the public school system.
- California has just passed a law requiring all school text books to remove anything that might appear to discriminate against or offend gays, lesbians, bi-sexuals and other ambiguous sexual groups. This includes cross dressers.
- San Francisco has forced Catholic Charities to work with Gay-friendly adoption agencies for placement with homosexual couples and the city council unanimously passed a resolution condemning the Church for being “anti-gay.”
This isn’t about toleration. This is indoctrination and forcing the “religion” of homosexuality on everyone under the guise of equality.
You might want to send a note to the Philadelphia City Council to let them know that their actions against the Boy Scouts just exposes their hatred for anything that doesn’t conform to their indoctrination agenda.
Just in case you still buy that line:
After this April’s implementation of the Sexual Orientation Regulations (SOR’s), British religious schools may no longer be allowed to teach school children that the Christian viewpoint on sexual morality is “objectively true,” a government report says.
The Joint Committee on Human Rights, made up of members from Parliament, has issued a report on the implementation of the regulations recommending that religious schools be required to modify their religious instruction to comply with the government-approved doctrine of “non-discrimination.”
Although religious schools will be allowed to remain open and may continue to give instruction in various religious beliefs, instruction must be modified “so that homosexual pupils are not subjected to teaching, as part of the religious education or other curriculum, that their sexual orientation is sinful or morally wrong.”
The report says the regulations will not “prevent pupils from being taught as part of their religious education the fact that certain religions view homosexuality as sinful,” but they may not teach “a particular religion’s doctrinal beliefs as if they were objectively true.” Published February 26, the report says, “We do not consider that the right to freedom of conscience and religion requires the school curriculum to be exempted from the scope of the sexual orientation regulations.”
With the Equality Act 2006, the government empowered itself to create regulations making it illegal for anyone providing goods, services, facilities, premises, education or public functions, to discriminate against that person on the grounds of sexual orientation. The SOR’s are scheduled to come into effect in England and Wales and Scotland in April of this year after a ratifying vote in Parliament. They came into effect in Northern Ireland January 1.
It has never been a matter of just being left alone. It has always been full, unconditional approval and promotion of the homosexual lifestyle. This year the Democratic-controlled congress will most likely pass federal non-discrimination laws for homosexuals. It’s only a matter of time before your first amendment rights will be subordinated to approval of the homosexual agenda.
If you doubt this can happen in America, the Massachusetts’s Supreme Court ruled a couple of weeks ago that children in public schools MUST attend classes and take material that promote homosexuality as acceptable. According to the court, the only way parents can avoid indoctrination is to remove their kids from public schools, they aren’t allowed to opt out because it might make homosexuals feel bad.
