Ontario sex-ed battle reveals cracks in Left's alliance with Islam

Marissa SemkiwArchive

Toronto Star columnist Heather Mallick recently wrote a piece in which she called all the parents protesting Ontario's new sex-ed curriculum “bad parents.”

But think about this:

For Mallick, her worlds are colliding.

Who are the bad parents she speaks of?

Not the white Christian Conservative right.

No, these protesters come from traditional immigrant minority groups.

And the most stunning absenteeism, according to Chris Selley of the National Post, is from the Muslim community.

There has always been this uneasy alliance between progressive leftists and Islam but now they’re clashing.

Earlier this year, Mallick fiercely defended the right of a Muslim woman to wear a mask while swearing the oath of citizenship. But if a girl is raised in an environment where she needs to cover her face, I’m pretty sure that family also isn’t comfortable with her leaning about sex is a co-ed classroom.

Cultural relativists like Mallick unreservedly harp on about the importance and beauty of multiculturalism and equal recognition of all religions, until their traditional values collide with a progressive leftist cause, then they bail.  

This is the practical intolerance of the so-called “tolerant."

Hey Muslim extremists! The lefties don’t care if you want to blow us all up if we don’t convert and starting treating our women with less respect than a goat. They will, however, be furious with you if you don’t consent to having your children learn the ins and outs (so to speak) of oral and anal sex before they are old enough to order off of the adult menu at Applebees.

A corrupt Liberal government trying to take away parents rights, while greedy teacher’s jump aboard an ill timed strike. I’m so done with the public school system in Ontario, I hope the whole thing goes down in flames, and takes Wynn with it. I’m off to find a baby sitter, because my kids teacher is on strike next week, no graduations, no proms, remember when it used to be about the kids, what a joke !

Peter. Stay safe on the road.

Yes, Jamie and I banter back and forth. In good humour, I assume. Eh, Jamie?

Take as much time as you want. No pressure. I agree that it is impossible to keep up with all the information; it can be all-consuming and overwhelming at times.

With prayerful love until later …

All hells broken loose. I don’t condemn. I pray for conversion. Not my choice but my calling. I need your prayers

Joan sorry, flattering mockery though. I wish I could be insulted like that. That amazing rendition of my favourite hymn filled my heart with hope and joy. I Have a six hour drive now. I already spend too much time on this site from my wife. will need more time. I don’t read too good or express myself clearly. I like the videos but I can’t keep up. All helps broken loose here. Love you. Later ok?

Peter Babich – a family member of Micahel Coren came out of the closet as a homosexual. Would you have him condemn his family rather than love him/her, to continue to hold, publicly, on media, that heterosexuals can enjoy intimacy, warmth, release and the love of children while homosexuals must always sleep alone, must never enjoy the bond of intimacy, must never hold or love a child?

Do you expect him to choose rigid adherence to old-testament rules over the law Jesus fulfilled and said was the greatest law of all, the law of love?

Many Catholic homosexuals go through agony trying to adjust to same-sex sexual attraction. Fear their families will reject them too often leads them to despair and suicide. I think Michael has done the right thing by sacrificing not only rules Jesus said love trumps but also by sacrificing profit and reputation for love.

As for your friend, Vortex, I disapprove of him calling Michael an apostate when the world’s Muslims don’t discriminate between Anglican apostates and Catholic apostates, and I onject to his belief Michael’s soul is endangered by apostasy. That is the same terrorist argument Muslims use to intimidate those who want to leave Islam. And for him to call everyone who is not Roman Catholic “filthy” is the same misled and proud supremacist attitude held by the Islamists slaughtering Christians all over the world and one that Jesus of Nazareth would most certainly not condone.

Christians, all Christians, straight, gay, Catholic, Anglican, other Protestants, married, single, etc. need to unite under the banner of love lest our babble make us easy prey for Islamists.

Peter Babich – he posted it to mock me.

Jamie, I’m not sure why you posted that but thanks.

Please Joan, I was hoping you would watch my post below. On the other subject, not that you’re wrong, but I think you misunderstood. I will compose something on that site for you ASAP. Peace of Christ be with you

MacGreenEyedMonster – what is your interest in keeping hidden and taboo the fact that pre-pubescent children experiment with potentially life-threatening sex play because no adult has told them the facts? Do you want more children to die from auto erotic asphyxia that they experiment with because they believe it is a safe mind-altering rite of passage alternative to drugs?

I know many people will protest parents should be the ones to educate kids “when they are ready” (i.e., when parents are ready, i.e., never) but how many parents do you know who have had a frank talk with their 9 year-old about cutting, fisting (or fingering), and auto-erotic asphyxia?
commented 2015-05-09 12:23:25 -0400
Peter Babich – for you.
commented 2015-05-09 09:53:51 -0400
Jamie MacMonster – If you insist. Just ditto what I already told you all the way through school and add valedictorian.

Now, why do you seek only to avoid the real issue here – auto erotic asphyxia among the good kids of today? Why don’t you want to help these aspiring athletes and future social leaders?

Why do you deny that children as young as 11already engage in cutting, breath play and other so-called bdsm behaviours entirely without instruction from any adult parent or teacher??

Do you have a vested interest in keeping this all a secret???

JOAN, JOAN, JOAN. Tell us about all the prizes you won in school the following year. Please, please, pleeeeeeez. ….
commented 2015-05-08 18:10:06 -0400
Jamie McMaster – What is wrong with you?

My point is that young people engage in risky behaviours completely outside any adult influence. Among today’s good youth – the popular, athletic good students – auto erotic asphyxia is popular. Some die and corrupt cops who would rather harass anyone who disagrees with them call these accisental paraphilia deaths suicide.

Why not debate my argument instead of always attacking my person? No brain?.

Ron Voss, sir I am heartsick over this. Michael Voris gave a good perspective. vortex. Wish I had time to post it for you. Peace

Hey! JOAN!
Thanks so much for sharing this. “I won the merit award for most popular student. I also got top marks in my class”. You got me humming an old song.
commented 2015-05-08 08:02:41 -0400
Ron Voss, if you are not interested in what I say, why have you addressed me? Seriously, dude!

It is not a one-size fits all program. Boards and teachers have discretion in how they teach the curriculum. They have discretion to modify the information to meet the needs of their students.

Parents should meet with boards and teachers to discuss and influence just what and how the sex-ed curriculum is taught, to discuss and advocate for their children’s needs.

The preamble quoted by media applies to the whole curriculum, to encourage students to see themselves in successful math, science, languages, civics and history expertise, and yes, as tolerant of diversity. Tolerant of difference.

The curriculum does not coerce straight kids to have sex with other straight kids. That is a lie.

“Don’t get youself in a knot about this but your view makes you guilty of sexual child abuse”? Yeah, okay, closet homo! No knot in my person. But you are a bigot and a liar. Stop it.

You need to get off your lazy and read the curriculum instead of thinking you can fool those of us who have read it by citing quotes taken out of context from the media.

Think for yourself, Ron. And quit with the ugly.

Milan – please educate me. What is disgusting and abusive about what you call medical language? What is wrong with the words penis, vulva, vagina, testicles? Or for that matter, the word anus?

How are they worse than pee pee, hole, bags or poo poo?
commented 2015-05-08 07:28:46 -0400
Liza – abused kids don’t use the words “vulva” “penis” “condom” “anal sex” and “no” to describe abuse. Pedophiles don’t use that kind of language. Child abuse is coercive not educational.

Abusers say things like “Don’t tell Mommy” or “If you tell anyone, Mommy will die” Or “if you tell anyone, the police will arrest you”.

Children say things like “Daddy says if I tell anyone, Mommy will die” or “Uncle says I like it” or “Mommy says I deserve all those enemas”.

Don’t think for a second that this sort of thing isn’t happening here:

Christians need to focus on taking the logs out of our own eyes before trying to take the splinter from the eyes of others. Only those who have never sinned should throw stones.

I am tired of Christians on high horses confessing everyone’s sins but their own.

Remember Michael Coren’s February 2015 op-ed in the National Post entitled “Why critics of Ontario’s new sex ed curriculum are wrong”, wherein he not only gave his stamp of approval to the new sex-ed curriculum, but slammed parents who oppose it as “hysterical.”. Now this announcement. As a result of his position on same-sex marriage having “evolved” over time (like Barrack Obama’s):
Michael Coren leaves Catholic Church for Anglican Communion over gay ‘marriage’

Clint Carpenter, really good point,“When a child is sexually abused they use words and language that parents notice. That stops in September when those words and language are taught at school. No one seems to think about that.”

Any abuse will be harder to detect with the normalization of these words, and acts. It puts kids in more danger not less.
commented 2015-05-07 21:39:44 -0400
Joan….you really need to rethink your position. This is a revolting, extremist document that is really meant to de-sensitize little children about sex and introduce left-wing artificial constructs like 6 genders and horrific medical terms to 1st graders like


The next incarnation to this curriculum: “Pedophelia is a sexual orientation and should be accepted” Mark my words.

JOAN ABERNETHY, previous posts have revealed you to be a defender and apologist for this perverse sex-ed program, so I am not interested in what you have to say on this matter. What the Ontario government is doing with this one-size-fits-all sexual education program is outright social engineering by the state, taking the primary responsibility for education away from the parents as Marissa so excellently pointed out in her preamble. The Preface of the new Ontario sex-ed curriculum (p. 3), which spells out the “expectations” for the sex-ed curriculum, says as much. Under a section of the Preface entitled, “Elementary Schools For The Twenty-First Century”, one reads: “It (revised Ontario curriculum) recognizes that, today and in the future, students need to be critically literate in order to synthesize information, make informed decisions, communicate effectively, and thrive in an ever-changing global community. It is important for students to be connected to the curriculum; to see themselves in what is (being) taught…” It is the government’s intention to connect the children to this curriculum and insert them into it to the degree that they “see themselves in it”, a clear admission of social engineering. Don’t get yourself into a knot over this, but my view is that anybody that defends this perverse sex-ed program is complicit in the sexualization of children, as well as showing one to be comfortable with such overbearing social engineering conducted by the state.
