Don’t force elementary schools to fly the homosexual ‘pride’ flag this June
Dear School Board Trustees,
I was alarmed to learn that Ontario's Greater Essex County District School Board voted on February 19th to force all its public elementary schools to fly the gay pride flag for a minimum of one week in June.
And furthermore, that public school boards across Canada are increasingly forcing or "encouraging" their schools to fly the controversial, gay pride flag during the month of June, without regard for the religious beliefs of every student, or their families.
It has been reported that further indoctrination often takes place, wherein the school requires the entire student body to come outside and gather around the gay pride flag, to celebrate homosexuality, transgenderism, and other sexual identities pushed by the LGBT lobby.
The homosexual pride flag is a political symbol that divides our communities and creates conflict. It therefore has no place on the school grounds.
The only flag that should be flown at our schools, is the Canadian flag. It is a non-controversial symbol of national unity and shared pride for our great country.
Although school officials justify flying this controversial symbol as a way to promote “inclusion”, it does the exact opposite for many children and their families. The homosexual pride flag makes many children of Christian, Muslim, Sikh, Jewish and other faith or cultural beliefs, feel uncomfortable and unsafe at school.
There have been reports that children who, for religious reasons, object to standing in honour of the homosexual flag, often get bullied by other students, and made a spectacle of by pro-LGBT teachers and staff.
I ask you to please take a stand against flying the controversial gay pride flag on school property, and to institute a policy whereby the only flag permitted to be flown, is the Canadian flag.
