Dear Editor

The writer here clearly states his view that regardless of a person’s feelings with respect to sexuality, they are not evil and deserve respect and protection.  I understand that view while not supporting it in its entirety.  It is true that all people are of equal value in the sight of God based on their personhood including the unborn, the infirm and the aged, however, I do not support today’s utopian definition of diversity/equity which has at its core that all worldviews, lifestyles and behaviours are equally moral and valid.

While the medical evidence alone is overwhelming with regard to the effects of homosexual conduct on people, there is another test that can also be applied.  It is the test of universality.  To apply the test you simply ask, “ If every human lived the homosexual lifestyle, what would be the impact on mankind?

To respond to the writer’s idea that the precise point of public education is to present different perspectives than what is being taught in the home, I would refer him to the current Ontario Education Act which defines the duties of the teacher as follows;

S.264 (1) (c)    “[Teachers have a duty]... to inculcate by precept and example respect for religion and the principles of Judeo-Christian morality and the highest regard for truth, justice, loyalty, love of country, humanity, benevolence, sobriety, industry, frugality, temperance, and all other virtues.”

Teaching young children that all worldviews, lifestyles and behaviours are equally moral and valid is false indoctrination and therefore does not exemplify highest regard for truth.
