Alberta NDP mandates LGBTQ guidelines for schools. Media asks Catholic bishop to comment -- but not an imam

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

Is there a problem with Google Maps? Why can't mainstream media reporters ever find their way to a mosque?

This week, in Alberta our Education Minister, David Eggen, has mandated that schools - including Catholic schools - adopt the NDP's new LGBTQ guidelines by March.

Have you noticed that any time the media reports on a story about gender and sexuality, they can find their way to a Catholic church or the Archbishop's office?

In this case, the media had no problem finding comment from Bishop Henry of Calgary. He called the Education Minister’s new rules "totalitarian” and “anti-Catholic" and he expressed concerns about the lack of consultation with the Catholic community. But you know who the media couldn’t find yesterday? An Imam or an administrator at an Islamic school.

I wonder why the media couldn’t find their way to Edmonton Islamic Academy?

The Academy, in 2013, brought in a local Imam, Mustafa Khattab, who gave a lunchtime talk comparing homosexual people to "someone who has diabetes or someone who has cancer or AIDS."

The Edmonton Islamic Academy receives $4 million dollars in government funding each and every year. But I bet it receives none of the gender policing that Catholic educators get.

I guess it's true. Some animals are more equal than others.

The pattern of these Commie/Socialist Politico’s is so obvious, I am not exactly sure how they are capable of pulling the wool over so many peoples’ eyes, but they do. The teaching of sexually deviant behavior is not the place for the classroom. I hear comments like keep the religion out of the classroom, but sexual relationships (no matter how controversial) is perfectly OK for grade Five and Six. This is a political mandate, teach homosexuality, but don’t talk to the children about God. If you can’t see the undercurrents that drive this Agenda, well I think you are lost, but, I still believe that you can be prayed for to have the veil removed from your eyes (thus I pray), before it is too late. If that fails I pray for the Country that enough people are able to see this Agenda and the corrupt/evil drivers of it for what they really are.

First, it’s NOT a mandate; merely a series of recommendations which have no teeth when it comes to enforcement. Second, we shouldn’t allow for Catholic schools to exist in Alberta at all. Religion is the domain of the church.

Next step of the Libtard scheme will see Trudeau, Nutley, Selenger and Wynne tag-team a radical program to greatly expand the powers of the so-called Human Rights Commission to aggressively hunt down & punish everyone that doesn’t jump on the LGBTQWERTY band wagon, or subscribe to the Party propaganda from the State Broadcaster & Continual Trudeau Vision (CTV). That’s the kind of inclusiveness, tolerance & free speech that Progs subscribe to.

I’ve already called for 500,000 unemployed by 2017. By the next election, close to one million will be unemployed. Does anyone really think that Notley or anyone in the NDP caucus will stick their necks out then? I predict that not one of them will stand for reelection. We will see a collection of nobodies and losers stand in for the incumbents – many from outside Alberta. The NDP will become a comedy act, with a fake leader and fake candidates.

Given enough time, the anger of the people will become palatable. I foresee the Premier being placed behind massive security barriers at all times, as well as all NDP MLAs. They will soon all have bodyguards 24/7. And then an MLA will be assaulted. Then what? Arrest everyone? Close the Legislature and govern from a secure location? Notley never seen, except for carefully control media events and broadcast transmissions from an undisclosed location? Sound familiar?

That’s what tyrants do. The three years will be very interesting – and not in a good way.

This will be an incredible relief for the 100 000 plus out of a job. Whats next notley let me guess, punishment of all dissenters, an entire gov division to enforce the new laws, more idiot gov officials to make more laws when these ones are not followed. Probably the ndp idea of employment.

NDP governments don’t produce well educated citizens. Look no further than Manitoba to see the results of NDP education. It’s the bottom of the barrel. To obtain a good education in Manitoba send your kids to private school. The NDP unions have destroyed everything that was good. We spend more per child than any other province and receive the worst result. Let’s look at the progressive movement, they have high jacked education to the point where pedophiles have been allowed to develop the pedophile ready program. See Ontario. Who supported this were liberals as in Wynne and Trudeau. We even have selfie shoots with our PM fawning over Ontario’s architect of their pedophile ready program. The NDP of Alberta is infested with Liberal progressives imported from the pedophile ready province of Ontario.

Here is a better idea. Separate religion and schools.

What can be said of progressives?

The are no more than humping Bonobos monkeys, and they will not be happy until they, and everyone else, can enjoy what is wrought from the Cult of the Orgasm.
commented 2016-01-16 21:47:53 -0500

What else can be said of the permissive-minded progressive parent today: they want their children – and everyone else’s – to be exposed to every perversion imaginable. They appear to harbour the sick and twisted notion that such experiences create a more rounded adult. This is the sort of subhuman you’re up against.

So, find a conservative gay person. We all know they exist, so let’s find one, or anyone of non-traditional sexuality or gender, and have that person have a hissy fit in front of one of these muslim schools. They don’t even have to be conservative, just different in a sexual or gender way enough that the local imam’s going to have a problem accomodating. I can see a rampant hand wringing collectivist doing this. Where’s the gender-neutral bathrooms? Where’s the “safe space”? If a loud enough noise is made, the media won’t have a choice about covering it. And then we all get to see the leftists’ heads explode! There’s got to be at least one reporter in Alberta who’s more gay than left wing, isn’t there? I don’t live in Alberta so I can’t help but surely there’s someone reading this who lives near a muslim school and can put a bee in the bonnet of someone appropriate? What about the Human Rights angle? Can’t anyone theoretically attack an institution like a muslim school thru that kangaroo system for human rights abuses on a third person? Seems to me I remember a story from Ezra a few years ago about some jerk who made a fortune going after people and institutions on behalf of third parties, even though no actual loss was proven by anyone. Maybe that’s an angle?

Why not teach the kids about math, and reading , and writing instead of focusing on who, what, when and how they can fuck.

Give it time. The radical Muslims will but heads with the modern school policies on all gender issues soon enough. If there was a soccer game that was not Sharia enough, then there will be something popping up any moment.

You couldn’t be more correct Kelvin. It is child abuse. These parents are acting like robots, instead of thinking for themselves. It is not a convenient solution to haul your kid out of the public school system, but it is a solution. Parents have a responsibility to keep their children safe. Don’t give that up to the government party line. The stakes are high, a whole generation. The next in line to run the country. Think of it.
commented 2016-01-16 16:16:21 -0500
It’s a sad commentary to find ourselves governed by sick pedophiles that by the mere power of suggestion will change some children mindsets and damage them for life. For the life of me, why young parents would even consider subjecting there children to this type of indoctrination is mind boggling. This is child abuse perpetrated by this government and its crony school boards.
And of course they won’t consult an immam or any Muslim group because they know what the answer will be, the left are the biggest islamophobes around, they can’t control them so that makes them FEAR them.

Bonus for the left – a perfect pretext to further demonize Christians on the long march to a man-made heaven on earth.

The comment section would be much better if there were reply and notification options.

This problem is also economic and reality. Are the schools now required to build special bathrooms and change rooms every time a student shows up and says they want to be a different gender? Where does the money come from in a down turned economy? Even if the province did have the money, it would take upwards of a year to get a renovation/addition completed. So what do they do in the meantime to support the new gendered kid? Put up a temporary facility outside?

This is similar to all of the accommodating that is being done for muslims. Every time the muslims bitch and demand something the whole system has to make changes and take on a new routine, be it school, sports, or other activities.

There comes a time when those in authority have to draw a line in the sand and say STOP.

It’s only been seven months and the people are ready to declare war on the NDP. Give it another year, when everything is ruined, there’s starvation everywhere, and their MLAs are assaulted daily, the people’s wrath will be full on. The end goal can only be the complete destruction of the NDP and the progressive movement they represent.

In the US, they are headed for a sea change in their society. The GOP grows stronger as their mission is defined separate from the self-serving interests of the party’s establishment; truly moral leadership will emerge. As for the Democrats, they are headed down the road to oblivion. The in-fighting is beginning to ratch up. Sanders and Clinton will soon be at loggerheads and the Dems divided.

Canadians can learn a lot from the US over this period. It will full patriots with the fervour to make the same war on progressives as that being waged in the US right now. Sit back and watch as the wrath builds. And prepare for the coming battles.

A simple question for the minister: Does NDP’s new LGBTQ guidelines apply to Islamic schools??
commented 2016-01-16 12:03:29 -0500
I don’t understand why Albertans are not picketing their legislature and insisting on an election. The NDP want to fit everyone into a box of their design except Muslims, weather they fit or not. The NDP are collectivists and anti-individual, anti-freedom and anti-Albertan and should be routed.

The promotion of sodomity is an indication of mental illness. However, since the vast majority of progressives are mentally ill, they have no idea that they are. When confronted with accusations of the obvious – that they are delusional with the intent to harm others – they reject it and attack those who criticize them and their perversions as harmful. It’s no different than the heroin addict who sees their harmful addiction as “consciousness-raising” or “intellectually stimulating”. They are making up excuses to rationalize their behavior. In the end, such people are a dangerous threat and must be wiped out. There is no other option but extermination.

The problem with these discussions or debates, whatever you want to call them, is that people never talk about what they shoild really be talking about. The discussion should be about if there is an objective moral standard. An objective moral standard means there is a standard of right and wrong that transcends human opinions. If there are objective morals the questions are where does that standard come from, what is it based on, and how do we identify them? If there is no objective moral standard all we are arguing about is our opinions and who can say whose opinion is right and whose opinion is wrong? The tedium and utter lassitude that sets in after listening to the vacuous moralizing of the progressive modern liberal is killing brain cells. These conversations will go round and round and round until the left and our ‘progressive’ culture can finally see that these are questions not to be answered by governments, or school boards, or any human opinion. Sure, we can do whatever we want. We can endorse any moral code that is in vogue or convenient for the time being. We can define what is true and right for human beings and define our own codes of conduct and for today in our narrow minded western progressivism follow the mantra of ‘as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else’. God will not be mocked, we reap what we sow, and we sow in one season and reap in another. The transcendent part of each human being knows the right. It is religion that has domain over the moral questions but not just any old religion and not any God either. I am sure this assertion gets the blood boiling of many. If you find yourself among the many who find this world view offensive you should realize that you are now defining a moral standard within yourself. My question to you would be is that moral assertion, that feeling of being offended just your opinion? Or is it an objective moral standard that you are holding me to? Or, perhaps there is no moral standard working there at all but rather your feelings are giving away the true motives deep inside. Let’s face it, even the very best of us hate being held to a moral standard. Our deeds are evil and we do not want them exposed. We will do what we want to do and we will write the moral code to suit our behaviour. This isn’t a societal problem and education won’t fix it. There is a solution but first we all have to cut the crap. Bishop Fred Henry and those like him have courage and character and a moral standard that transcends themselves. The rest of us are pathetic narcissists. What a small and unhappy world we have made for ourselves.
