Joe screen-capped this tweet from Porno Pete about a new proposed law in Alberta:
Wow, that would be just crazy if the Canadian province of Alberta passed a law denying parents the right to teach their children to be little bigots! Homo-fascism indeed!
Of course, that’s not happening in any way, shape or form. Is Porno Pete just excitable, or is he a liar?
Here is what is actually happening. The actual story can even be gleaned from the hysterical “news” article at WingNutDaily, if you read between the lines of abject bigotry and fear:
Homeschooling families will soon be forbidden from teaching that homosexual sex is sinful as part of their schooling program, according to the government of Alberta, Canada. Under the province’s Education Act, homeschoolers and religious schools will be banned from “disrespecting” people’s differences, Alberta Education Minister Thomas Lukaszuk’s office told LifeSiteNews just last week. “Whatever the nature of schooling – homeschool, private school, Catholic school – we do not tolerate disrespect for differences,” said Donna McColl, Lukaszuk’s assistant director of communications. “You can affirm the family’s ideology in your family life, you just can’t do it as part of your educational study and instruction.”
So, again, reading between the lines, Alberta is considering a homeschooling curriculum which doesn’t include hate. Parents who happen to be bigots will have to find supplemental materials in order to indoctrinate their children into hate, I suppose. I’m sure they can find appropriate churches for that?
The question, one more time. Porno Pete: excitable/gullible/ravaged by fear of gays around every corner and behind every tree, or just a liar?
