Authorities in Canada’s Alberta province are giving Christian schools a choice: Quit being Christian and teaching the truth of God’s Word, or be suspended and potentially even shut down. And because the schools all take government funding at this point, odds are good that the totalitarian gender ideologues running the education bureaucracy will get their wish, absent a massive public outcry.
The Newman Report first reported on Big Brother’s persecution of Christian schools and families in Alberta in 2017. At the time, provincial indoctrination bureaucrats were bullying the schools into promoting homosexuality, sodomy, gender confusion, fornication, masturbation, and more, in violation of Christian teaching. When schools resisted, unhinged miseducation officials exploded into a rage. Now, they are going further.
Recently, the provincial Department of “Education” in Alberta warned sixty private Christian schools that they are in violation of the “Safe and Caring Schools” policy adopted in 2016, Crisis magazine reported. The reason: Their materials still include references to God, the inerrant truth of scripture, the fact that God created people male and female, and so on.
Among the officially banned phrases are:
- “We believe men and women were created in the image of God … and therefore have transcendent, intrinsic worth.”
- “Parents are the primary educators…”
- “The unchangeable and infallible truth of the Word of God…”
- “God created mankind as male and female, equal in dignity and worth…”
- “God’s institution of marriage, a covenant between one man and one woman…”
- “Obedience to God’s law supersedes subjection to human authority.”
- “The above doctrines will be taught as truth in our school…”
If the Christian schools refuse to submit by purging all their materials, bureaucrats threatened the schools with “suspension or cancellation of accreditation.” To avoid more problems with Big Brother’s LGBT-dogma enforcers, all schools must remove what officials described as these “unwelcoming, uncaring and/or disrespectful” words from their written materials.
The Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms, which supports free speech, asked authorities to clarify what was “unwelcoming” or “uncaring” about the phrases. In response, officials pointed to “the opinion of the Minister.” The “Minister,” in this case, is socialist “Education Minister” David Eggen, a radical advocate of sexualizing pre-pubescent children, whose disgusting “opinion” apparently trumps the Bible and freedom of religion in Alberta.
More than a few critics have wondered what sort of perverts would insist on teaching pre-pubescent children about sodomy and other perversion. Interestingly, one of Eggen’s counterparts in Ontario, Deputy Minister of Education Ben Levin, who demanded and facilitated the sexualization of children in Ontario schools, was arrested a few years ago for making and distributing child-pornography as well as online grooming of a minor, Crisis reported.
Before Americans write off the lunacy up north as just another example of Canadian liberal idiocy, they should realize that this is exactly where “public education” is heading in America, too. If developments continue on their current trajectory, there will soon be no refuge from the gender lunatics and their insistence on brainwashing all children into their cult. Even private and homeschools, if they are allowed, will be terrorized and bullied into submission.
