No LGBT ‘Pride’ flags at our schools
Dear School Board Trustees,
I am alarmed that school boards across Canada are increasingly forcing or "encouraging" their schools to fly the controversial, gay and transgender 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 LGBT Pride flag, to celebrate homosexuality, transgenderism, and other sexual identities pushed by the LGBT lobby.
The LGBT 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 transgender and 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-and-transgender pride flag on school property, and to institute a policy whereby the only flag permitted to be flown, is the Canadian flag.
