David Menzies of The Rebel.Media reports: Which identity group occupies the pinnacle of the human rights hierarchy? Is it Islam or the LGBTQ community? Thanks to the Peel District School Board, we now have a definitive answer. MORE: Islam trumps LGBTQ: Peel “mini-mosque” school won’t “accommodate” Pride flag
This month, many schools in Canada will be raising the rainbow flag to celebrate the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia, except maybe Peel schools.
The Globe and Mail reports there have been “concerns” voiced about raising the flag, without mentioning who’s raising those concerns.
But, based on some stories we did on controversies at the Peel Region School Board stirred by their embrace of sharia and the accommodation of gender-apartheid mosques, I’m going to go out on a limb and speculate.
Concerns expressed by some about Muslim prayer in schools were dismissed as the rantings of racists, bigots and Islamophobes, while concerns expressed by others about the LGBTQ community were taken seriously?
Neither of these should even be a topic in public schools, particularly at the elementary levels, but that’s just how far Western educational institutions have fallen. Education is secondary.
