The district’s Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity regulation is challenged by BC Parents and Teachers for Life.

LETTERS: Schooled on sexual orientation


‘Family group’ targets pro-gay policy, Oct. 23.


‘Family group’ targets pro-gay policy, Oct. 23.

Wasn’t that headline wrong? Shouldn’t it have said: Family group targets ‘pro-gay’ policy?

I’m a ‘family person’. Does that mean every time I see my ‘family,’ I have to speak to them with quotation marks?

Grow up PAN. Not ‘everyone’ agrees with Surrey school board’s bending the knee to the homosexual ‘community.’

Let’s face it, how do boys aged 13 to 16 even know what their sexual orientation is?

Hide your children! Cover their ears! Teach them to be religious bigots and haters like we, their parents, are!

This can be said about the so-called “family group” of your front-page headline – a group of self-righteous zealots that oppose acceptance of homosexuality in our Surrey schools.

It is exactly this kind of mentality, when taken to the extreme, that produces people like those causing mayhem in the world today under the pretext of preserving their religious beliefs.

Some countries, controlled by religious leaders, still hold up the death penalty as a treatment for homosexuality. Maybe this family group would like to see that in Canada?

The world no longer has any use for people like this, and I trust that your online poll on this subject this week will give this group of haters pause to consider how few people agree with them.

Then, hopefully, they might learn to accept what society has come to realize is a normal part of human existence.
