It is an honest representation of what is going on in the public schools in Ontario, and other provinces. What I don't like is the fact that parents can not take THEIR children out of those classes. Parents should be outraged by the fact that schools are dictating to them, and forcing them to obey or shut up.
Overall, the curriculum amounts to a government-endorsed sexual exploitation of young children. Teaching children tolerance (accepting something you don’t like for the good of society) is very different from teaching them they must actively promote, or refrain from the legitimate criticism of, certain practices.I see nothing wrong with this ad, but apparently the typical lefties have their shorts in a knot. It must have been real bad for the National Post to buckle under the pressure.
It’s time for public schools to get out of the social activism arena and focus on providing kids with the real educational tools that they need to succeed.
Where the ad exceeded the bounds of civil discourse was in its tone and manipulative use of a picture of a young girl; in the suggestion that such teaching “corrupts” children, with everything that such a charge implies; and in its singling out of groups of people with whose sexuality the group disagrees.What a pathetically weak reason for canceling the ad. The people at the National Post should be ashamed of themselves for grovelling before the special interest groups. SHAME! The manipulative use of a picture of a young girl? So I guess you will not be taking any ads from World Vision and the like, because if they don't use manipulative pictures of young girls and boys, I don't know who does. I lost a lot of respect for the National Post because they bowed down to a special interest group who is busy manipulating our children in our schools. Grow some balls National Post.
The fact that we will not be publishing this ad again represents a recognition on our part that publishing it in the first place was a mistake.
What happened to freedom of speech in Canada? Special interest groups have taken over and corrupted what freedom of speech means. Special interest groups think freedom of speech only refers to them and their positions on issues, try to give a different point of view, and you end up like the National Post, grovelling BEFORE them, instead of standing up TO them.
Thanks for showing some balls Sun TV! Keep up the great work!
