Re: “Trustee’s anti-SOGI post shocking”, Progress Letters, Feb. 12, 2020.
I read with great interest Margaret Reid’s letter reacting to a resource I posted for parents concerning the controversial SOGI 123 resource.
She claims the organization that wrote this excellent document [Family First New Zealand] was extremist.
Is that how we characterize pro-family, Christian organizations now? What interests me more than that though is the fact that Margaret and her pro-SOGI 123 group also cry “censorship” when a parent uses school board policy to object to a resource, as is their right.
They can’t have it both ways.
Either we have free speech and freedom of association as depicted in the Human Rights code, or we don’t.
We don’t all agree on everything in society, however that’s what makes us a diverse, inclusive mosaic in this city, province and country of ours.
