Another glorious weekend passes, the weather is cooling and the leaves are taking a bit of a tint now, reds starting to dance across some of the greenscape, Mother Nature is practicing, ready to dazzle us yet again with her talent.
So, again what to blog about, peeking quickly at the news.. it become easy. *nods my head* hold on, it is going to be a RANT. cause I just got stirred up yet again.
I read this headline,
Father sues Ontario school board for not accommodating his religious beliefs
so right away I am annoyed. I am sorry, but religion is a personal thing and has no place in schools. AND separating schools and students so religious beliefs can be followed.. hmm in my opinion is wrong. Sorry and I will debate this with you if you wish, there is enough separation in the world. We are all the same!
Now, more comments from the article. He, the father goes on to say. “My children are my own. I own them. They don’t belong to the school board,”
GASPS, you OWN them?
now, a further quote from him “Why should I send my children to another school?” he said. “I pay my taxes…I don’t see why somebody else’s discrimination should cause me, should influence where I send my children. Not in a free country. Not in Canada.”
A free country where you Own your children? OWN!
He wants special notice if they plan to discuss family, marriage and sexuality in the classroom, so he can coach them beforehand or remove them from the class.
Oh they will get a good education.. nods.. completely unbiased. Just will have a lot of gaps in it where he disagrees at what his property will absorb.
Now don’t get me wrong, every parent should talk to their children about lessons, and more. Offer their thoughts to them, see how their children think on the topics, perhaps dig deeper into it, learn more, that is great!
Remove them before hand? Where will this stop? All lesson plans must be sent to him beforehand? They must be kept apart from other students, just in case something is discussed? Hold planned lessons back, because he was unavailable the day before, to confer with?
It seems a little bizarre to me. But that is just me.
