6:05 P.M. Typical Globe and Mail !!! …

2015DoubleAppMed

The following is a prime example of several of my categories colliding !!! … This is an excerpt from the left wing , social liberal mindset of one of the staff of the Globe and Mail … Apparently approved by the ‘ editor ‘ !!! …

… It is this neutralizing of sexual orientation and gender identity that so infuriates critics … Listing such polarizing issues as simply one more of the qualities that make up a person , on a par with eye colour and family background , contradicts the tenets of their faiths … As one group puts it ; the lessons ‘ show no respect nor tolerance for traditionally-principled families ‘ …

But that is where the critics make their big mistake … The values reflected in the new curriculum are not family values … They are society’s values …

We live in a society in which equality and tolerance are enshrined as fundamental priorities … We want children to be armed against abuse , to be able to flourish on their own terms and under their own identity and to appreciate the differences in others … We want young men and women to grow up with a clear understanding of consent in sexual relations … These are the lessons that a public school system should teach , as long as it is done with care and the lessons are based on sound educational principles … The Ontario curriculum , which is conventional when compared with curriculums in other provinces and countries , meets that standard …

We will give this to its critics , though : The curriculum has a bizarre omission that baffles even the most open-minded and modern parent … When discussing sex , it never once mentions marriage or love … This is absurd …

Proponents of the new curriculum say its critics need to wake up and face reality , that this isn’t your grandfather’s world any more … Okay … And yet these same self-avowed realists look out the window and don’t see marriage , or love , going on around them ?…

No , marriage is not a basic societal value any more … But it has value to society and it is a fundamental part of many of the religions in Canada , and is also an important civil ceremony … It seems like a bit of a provocation not to acknowledge the role of marriage , traditional or otherwise , in our world … If children can learn over time about the different sorts of parents that exist in their world , then they can also learn that some parents are married and why that is important to them and irrelevant to others … At the very least , the government should acknowledge its existence in the curriculum …

As for love , when did that word become unmentionable ?… The curriculum refers to sex as a way of showing ‘ affection ‘ … 

MORBNOTE ; The above nonsense is certainly not my point of veiw !!! … I’ll add my thoughts to this later …
