POLL: Most Of Toronto Against The Idea Of An LGBT-Centric School

 

On Friday, we reported on efforts in Toronto to create a special school for LGBT students. While the campaign has its supporters, it also has detractors—including Toronto P-FLAG president Irene Miller, who says segregating students is wrong, even if its with the best of intentions.

Apparently, the majority of Torontonians agree with Miller.

In a poll published by the Toronto Sun, 66% of respondents said  segregating students into a gay-centric school wouldn’t solve the problem of bullying. “It may be that Torontonians see the province’s anti-bullying legislation as inclusive, whereas a separate school for LGBT students might be seen as excluding some,” Forum Research president Lorne Bozinoff said on Monday.

      I have to say that I sort of agree. While the “idea” behind it might seem appealing at first, the reality of it after sober thought is not as enticing.

      As for the poll.. well, if it was paid for by the Toronto Sun, it has about as much worth as a poll prepared by the National Enquirer.

      Gay-centric schooling doesn’t sound right.

      Too much separation.

      Too much “them” and “us”.

      Everybody needs to see us for the easy-to-see good that we are.

      If we are not visible, then nobody will know what we’re like.

      No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house (school) …….Proverbs 5:15

      In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven ……..Proverbs 5:16

      Sorry for the mistake.

      It’s “Matthew” 5:15-16
