Homosexual School Curriculum With No Parental Opt-Out?

B.C. Gay Couple Seeks Mandatory Homosexual School Curriculum Without Parental Opt-OutWhere do I start? This is a logical next step in the gay activist agenda. That the proposed curriculum would run roughshod over parental rights and constitutional protections for freedom of religion and belief is obvious. Having said that, I have no confidence that human rights commissions, populated as they are with "progressive" minded zealots, will reject such outrageous demands. Let's hope I am wrong about this.
VANCOUVER, B.C. July 11, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) A British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal is preparing to hear what pro-family and religious groups are calling a truly frightening case. Murray and Peter Corren, a B.C. gay couple, filed a complaint against the B.C. Ministry of education in 1999 alleging that the Ministry'’s curriculum didn'’t adequately “address issues of sexual orientation. That case is slated to be heard beginning today.
“"Basically, there is systemic discrimination through omission and suppression of queer issues in the whole of the curriculum," alleges Murray Corren, who is an elementary school teacher in Port Coquitlam.
What many are finding deeply disturbing, however, is that the Corren'’s are not only seeking inclusion of explicitly homosexual material in the curriculum, promoting homosexuality as a normative and safe lifestyle option, but also that they wish to ensure that the material is mandatory.If successful, the case will ensure that parents do not retain the right to choose to pull their children from the offensive portion of the curriculum and provide yet another extraordinary exception from normal rules because it has been insisted upon by gay activists.
