Students to learn ‘positive’ aspects of homosexuality

Next year, BC schools will begin to teach students about homosexuality—from a “social justice” perspective, says the BC Ministry of Education. That means, obviously, a favorable representation of homosexuals as alleged victims of social injustice.

The decision settles a human rights suit brought by two homosexual men who had charged that the provincial curriculum fails to portray ‘gays’, lesbians, bisexuals and ‘transgendered’ persons in a positive light.

Does anyone imagine that such a course will include information on the many negative aspects of homosexuality? Not likely!

The BC course illustrates the transition from education to indoctrination in government-monopoly schools—and this same pro-‘gay’ agenda will almost certainly be coming soon to a school near you, wherever you live in Canada.

We can also safely assume that the acceptance of same-sex relationships as ‘normal’ will also become a requirement in private schools that accept any government funding. School boards that resist will find themselves in front of human rights tribunals, or before courts that have been enlightened by the “superior wisdom about natural law” that Chief Justice Beverly McLachlin ascribes to jurists.

In BC, even homeschoolers who accept government help (the bait is a free computer) are forbidden by the provincial government to use any religious materials in teaching their own children!

In this, BC is following the lead of Belgium, which is prosecuting an opposition MP for the “crime” of homeschooling his five children—four of whom are already doing well at university—on charges of “neglect of parental duties”.

There is, of course, a place for teaching tolerance in schools; but in the post-modern atmosphere of today's government schools, "tolerance"—of almost anything and everything except traditional moral principles—is the only remaining "virtue". But tolerance of evil is itself a major social evil.

That is not to say that homosexual persons are evil; they are as worthy of human dignity as anyone else. But the effects of homosexual behaviour are surely evil: shortened life expectancy, much higher-than-average rates of disease, and the highest rates of domestic violence. (There is much more "gay-on-gay" violence than "straight-on gay" violence.)

If we want to curb the abuse of people for their sexuality, we have to start by teaching our children the truth. And that will require, among other things, electing people who have the courage to tell the truth, no matter what it costs them personally. Such a person is former Alliance MP Larry Spencer, who was kicked out of the Alliance caucus by then-Opposition leader (now Prime Minister) Stephen Harper. His “crime”? Telling the truth about homosexuality in public. Not politically correct.

You can read the whole story in Larry Spencer's new book, Sacrificed? Truth or Politics, available on-line at

If an elected MP cannot move the government to protect Canada's children from homosexual propaganda, what can an ordinary citizen do?

Here's a suggestion: download Dr. Scott Lively's warning about the legal liability school boards could face if they allow the classrooms to be used to indoctrinate children into believing that harmful, unhealthy, unnatural practices are “acceptable”—and send it to your local school board with your own letter of concern, as a warning. Dr. Lively (who teaches law in California) notes that a few tort liability [he explains the term] lawsuits could bankrupt an entire school district. The pdf file is available on-line at
