“Leading the legal challenge is the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. The group argues in court documents that keeping parents out of the loop violates multiple charter freedoms, including freedom of religion and expression… It also says gay-straight alliances are ‘ideological sex clubs’ where graphic information on gay sex is available… The group also says the law has ‘stripped parents of the ability to know fully where their children are, who they are involved with, and what they may be encouraged to think or do’.” – Cdn. Press, “’Ideological sex clubs: Alberta gay-straight alliance law faces first legal challenge” – Toronto Sun, June 19th, 2018.

“More than 200 Israeli rabbis published a letter on Thursday criticizing LGBTQ groups for employing ‘aggressive terror accompanied by non-stop media brainwashing,’ and for turning ‘perverts into heroes.’ The letter was triggered by Sunday’s LGBTQ demonstrations in Tel Aviv in response to the new government legislation, which denies gay couples the right to surrogacy.” – Hannah Alberga, “Your daily spiel for July 27” – Canadian Jewish News.

“It is clear from Ford’s populist campaign that he is no ally to the LGBTQ community. This is evident from his courting of a virulently homophobic and transphobic conservative base. His party is likely going to seek to exclude our communities from children’s education, and I would like to warn that this is a dangerous move… Removing sex-ed and LGBTQ material from educational institutions is an act of discrimination against our community” – Abigail Curlew, “Sex-ed isn’t going to turn you gay” – Oshawa This Week, June 21st, 2018.

“At some point we have to say enough is enough in terms of systemic oppression… The system does not do much to guarantee safety of people who are marginalized. Police need to do a lot of anti-oppression training from grassroots level, and on a consistent basis. Otherwise the trust is broken and will not be repaired soon.” – Pride reveller Henry Luyombya, a “peer researcher” with the Committee for Accessible AIDS Treatment, quoted by Gilbert Ngabo in “Pride weekend: The idea is to show strength and support” – Toronto Star, June 24th, 2018.

“I think everybody should have a right to get married regardless of their sex… I believe that Jesus would approve of gay marriage… I think Jesus would encourage any love affair if it was honest and sincere and was not damaging to anyone else and I don’t see that gay marriage damages anyone else… The only thing I would draw a line on… (is) I wouldn’t be in favor of the government being able to force a local church congregation to perform gay marriages if they didn’t want to.” – Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter, quoted by Thomas D. Williams Ph.D. in “Jimmy Carter: Jesus would ‘approve’ of gay marriage, some abortions” – Breitbart, July 9th, 2018.
