A study has found 90% of people don’t want the province to enact Bill 13 — proposed anti-bullying legislation which would allow groups like Gay and Straight Alliances in schools, according to the Alliance for Family Values.
“We are here to protect our children. We don’t want homosexual clubs led by homosexuals against the will of the parents. This is offensive material and that is why we are standing up,” Charles Mcvety, of the Institute for Canadian Values, said Tuesday.
“This is about our schools and what we want to be taught. (The government) has no respect for parents. We do not want this taught to our children.”
During the press conference, Premier Dalton McGuinty was accused of getting into bed with sex advice columnist Dan Savage because he supported a gay campaign for youth called It Gets Better.
“The message is we are all equal, but some are more equal,” Mcvety insisted.
The Alliance for Family Values survey of 2,800 people found Bill 13 should be decided by a referendum.
The survey found schools should not educate young children about sex or ask elementary students to participate in Gay Pride parades for anti-bullying purposes.
It also found there should be no Gay-Straight Alliances.
“We are not going to bias or to suppress or persecute the homosexual and multi-gender people. We want to have fair choice on our own decision to accept or not to accept certain life behaviour for our children other than the basic ethical training and the general education knowledge,” said Kenny Tsui of the Alliance for Family Values.
