Re: ‘Family group’ targets pro-gay policy, Oct. 23.
I read, with such disappointment, the front-page article on the local “family group” expressing their concern about the Surrey School District’s Resolution 9410.2.
First of all, the fact that we require such a resolution is a sad expression on our society. We do, however, if it allows our children to be more accepting and not blindly follow the biased and archaic views expressed by their parents.
Being gay or lesbian is not a choice, but simply who you are.
We are not surrounded by homosexual activists who will “force” our children to be gay or lesbian. They will be what they will be, and if they are allowed to do that without the condemnation of the rest of society, they will be allowed to live happy, open lives.
More importantly, it saddens me that even in this day and age, there are people expressing these views.
They call themselves a family group. If they were my family, I would disown them. If they were my parents, I would be ashamed. If they were my teachers, I would be scared.
Historically, there have been groups and world leaders who have been universally condemned for their prejudice, and no matter what these were, they are no different than the opinions expressed in this article.
It is a sad expression of White Rock/South Surrey as a community that we all share.
