SOGI critics are on the wrong side of history

Support for SOGI is ‘the right thing to do’

Yes, there are two sides to the B.C. SOGI curriculum: a wrong side and a right side.

On one side, you have biblical morality which comes from our ignorant and superstitious past, written by men who had no knowledge of how the natural world worked so they invented a god with all the worst of their own personalities rolled up into their creation.

On the other side, you have social justice which comes from science, from advances in human relations, from observation, from understanding that human sexuality is complex. It comes from human rights, women’s rights, equality rights, all things which the fundamentalists still oppose as they fight a desperate, losing battle with the modern world.

I have no problem supporting the SOGI curriculum as it is the right thing to do if you support social justice, basic human decency, acceptance of reality, and the truth of science from genetics to behavioural science. These fundamentalist parents are demanding the right to pass-on their own warped ideas of biblical morality to a world that no longer believes that the Earth is flat.
