Catholic school board won’t fly ‘Jesus’ pro-gay Pride flag after severe backlash By Lianne Laurence Life Site News
GNN Note – The image below, we presume is the “flag” in question. The first thing one should note is there is not a single human, nor the Messiah, in the image. There is merely a series of dots, circles and rectangles, drawn using a variety of colors and a variety of lines. Yes, I understand these are “stylized” humans, but how much more dehumanizing material are we suppose to accept? At what point do we say enough is enough? Greens, blues, gray, and orange – seriously, orange?! The Catholic school board has drawn a line here. It’s a shame it didn’t come much, much earlier in this process.
Other school districts are celebrating Pride Month.
An Ontario Catholic school board reversed its decision to have schools fly a “Catholic” version of the pro-homosexual “Pride” flag after backlash from across the spectrum.
LGBTQ activists and allies blasted the Waterloo Catholic District School Board (WCDSB) for not planning to fly the “traditional” rainbow Pride flag in June, which is designated as “Pride” month across the province.
And pro-family groups such as Parents As First Educators (PAFE) and Campaign Life Coalition blasted the board for the scandal of planning to recognize “Pride Month” at all, including flying a “Catholic” version of the Pride flag.
Meanwhile, Thunder Bay Catholic District School Board is raising the pro-homosexual rainbow Pride flag in front of its schools this month to demonstrate its commitment to “inclusion” — a practice it began last year.
The so-called Catholic version of the Pride flag that the WCDSB planned to raise at schools depicts Jesus with his arms outstretched over an array rainbow-coloured figures, above the words “We are all wonderfully made,” and a quotation from 1 John 4:19: “We love because he first loved us.”
“This is a sacrilege and an obscene scandal,” said Jeff Gunnarson, national president of Campaign Life, Canada’s national and largest pro-family, pro-life political lobbying group, in an email to supporters.
The proposed “Catholic Pride” flag references scripture in a way that “reinforces and endorses one of the main lies of LGBT activists,” which is that “gay people are born that way.”
