Imagine being a kid sitting in a classroom, and hearing things like this:
“Two plus two equals four, children—and I didn’t say ‘boys and girls’ because there’s no such thing as boys and girls. Gender is a state of mind!”
“When a verb ending in i-n-g is used as a noun, it’s called a gerund; and same-sex marriage is great for society.”
“Constantinople fell to the Turks in 1453, and having two dads is wonderful.”
The Manitoba Teachers Society, a union with some 15,000 members, has proposed a “sweeping inclusion of sexual-orientation issues throughout education curricula,” reported The Winnipeg Free Press, May 3. Translation: “gay” stuff gets into everything. The announced purpose is to “ensure that same-sex families and LBGTTQ people and themes are reflected in all curricula.” Note the use of the word “all.”
Because it’s Canada and not the U.S.A., “provincial curricula must be followed by all Manitoba schools, public and private.” In Ontario they’ve ordered Catholic schools to set up “gay” clubs. There’s no escape into the private schools for Canadians. Anyhow, the teachers’ union has its general meeting May 23-25, at which this bizarre proposal will likely be endorsed.
In the history of the civilized world, has any group ever been more fawned upon, treated with more fearful deference, backed up with more coercion from the state, or catered to more than homosexuals are today? Don’t people wonder about that—or have their minds been dulled by non-stop repetition?
The newspaper reported that this story “set off an online firestorm,” with more than 500 reader comments posted in a matter of hours. “Most of the comments, almost all of which are anonymous, attacked the proposal.”
Gee, now why would persons attacking this wicked and inane proposal prefer to remain anonymous? Could it possibly be that, in Canada, it’s always open season on anyone who doesn’t hustle to “obey the gay”? Does the newspaper think Canadians don’t know what the “human rights” commissions do to persons who speak a discouraging word against the march of sodomy? You’d better be anonymous! Canada leads the world in thought-crime prosecutions. But perhaps we’d better say “persecutions,” because these commissions aren’t courts of law, the normal rules of procedure and evidence do not apply, and they have a 99.99 percent conviction rate.
The vast majority of the comments were, shall we say, unsupportive. The paper showed its bias in selecting only a very few to display within the body of the story—including this glittering jewel of idiocy: “This is fantastic news. A more inclusive picture of society is a great step. This isn’t an agenda or some trick to ‘turn kids gay.’ This is an accurate reflection of society. Way to go MTS!”
Let’s see, now… Starting in kindergarten and going right on up through high school, every single day, in every subject taught, unionized teachers tell the kids, “Gay is great! Gay is great!” Every day, and surely more than once a day. And that ceaseless hammering on the mind will not “turn kids gay”? What—none of them? Children will never get the message that if they want to be treated like royalty, they ought at least to try homosexuality?
This is beyond ridiculous. It’s satanic.
But what are we to make of the millions of Christian parents in the United States and Canada who day in, day out, send their children to these schools to be mal-educated? What do the teachers’ unions have to do before those Christian parents stop handing their children over to them—set the schools on fire? But even that might not do the job. “Oh, sure, the building’s burning down. But at least it’s free.” (It’s not free; it’s costing us a fortune; but that’s a subject for another column.)

Meanwhile, whether it’s a lesson about the Wright brothers, or finding the area of a circle, or understanding fractions—if they can even find the time to teach such things, these days—or something as simple as the ABC’s (“B is for Bisexual…”), the Manitoba teachers propose to turn it into a commercial for aberrant sex: not even to mention downright sinful sex, and open-eyed rebellion against God’s laws. And the children’s Christian parents propose to let them do it.
