Scottish Schools to Teach LGBT Rights – Catholic Bishops Tacitly Supportive…editor
Schools in Scotland soon will be required to teach students LGBT history to prevent “homophobia and transphobia” and to encourage exploration of their gender identity.
That’s according to the London Guardian, which says Scotland has become the first nation in the world to embed teaching about gender options in its regular school curriculum.
The move comes after lawmakers “accepted in full the recommendations of a working group led by the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) campaign,” the report said.
“There will be no exemptions or opt-outs to the policy, which will embed LGBTI inclusive education across the curriculum and across subjects and which the Scottish government believes is a world first,” the report said.
Those advocating for mandates regarding alternative sexual lifestyles were cheered.
“This is a monumental victory for our campaign, and a historic moment for our country,” Jordan Daly of TIE told the newspaper. Read more here
Pride in our national identity used to be a characteristic of Scots. Well, not this Scot. I’m thoroughly ashamed to belong to a country – once renowned for its rigorous academic record in education – where evil is being taught (“embedded”) so that young people grow up to think that homosexual activity and “transgenderism” are normal behaviours; something good and desirable.
And note, importantly, that the Scottish Bishops can’t complain about the fact that “there will be no exemptions or opt-outs to the policy” [including for Catholic schools, obviously] because one of their priests – Father Paul Morton, Diocese of Motherwell – actively supports the group behind this diabolical policy, the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) Not only does he actively support TIE but the Scottish press lauded him as the very first Catholic “representative” [of the Bishops] to support LGBT education in schools.
This policy, then, is being implemented in Catholic schools, with the active support of the Catholic Church in Scotland – and that will remain the case unless and until the Bishops take action – publicly – to safeguard children in the Catholic education system against being “embedded” with immoral beliefs which are contrary to Catholic teaching because they are offensive to God. Not for any puerile reasons, not out of bigotry or prejudice, but because such sexual immorality is offensive to God.
We’ve discussed this LGBT indoctrination in schools before and, to be honest although I saw the headline a few days ago, I contented myself with posting it on one of the topic threads, but now that I’m getting emails from thousands of miles away to alert me to this latest report, I thought it might be time to launch another thread, in the hope of encouraging Catholic teachers and parents to fight this evil with all of their collective might, in a spirit of better late than never. I didn’t include “priests” in that list. No prizes for guessing why…
Everyone’s going along to get along, as the saying goes. Nobody’s fighting back. Everybody’s terrified of the LGBT +++ juggernaut. I’m not crazy about it, myself, but I think we need to regroup and DO something. But what? When Catholics thousands of miles away are reading that Scotland is proud of being a”world first” in brainwashing children into the LGBT +++ “lifestyle”, then maybe it’s long past time we were a bit more pro-active in dealing with this scandal.
Talking’s no use. I challenged Father Paul Morton to a debate, before, remember? That went down like the proverbial lead balloon, with the Bishop banning any such debate although not banning Father Morton from his supportive “pastoral” work on behalf of the TIE bunch. I wonder what that Bishop is thinking now, with the “fruits” of his tolerance about to be “embedded” in the souls of children and young Catholics across Scotland.
I’m fresh out of ideas. Over to thee!
