The passage of Bill 13 and Bill 33 in Ontario urges me to again write about their consequences. Together, both morally and legally, we must do what we can to defend religious freedom and parental rights. For the sake of the children in our schools, we ask you to please support the Parental Rights in Education Defense Fund (PRIEDF). As you know, in Ontario the ruling provincial government has imposed an over-sexualized curriculum called the "Equity and Inclusive Strategy." They have now backed it with Bill 13. The anti-bullying rhetoric sounds appealing, but it rejects the natural and Christian moral view about life, family and sexuality. It amounts to a legal attack on religious freedom and parental rights.
Come September 2012, our entire school system will be forced to accept policies to promote LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, Questioning) lifestyle, establish gay/straight alliances in Catholic and public schools and redefine traditional marriage and the family. Parents were told the policy is to prevent bullying and discrimination. However, local communities and parents have sadly learned by now that the true agenda of the government was to politically normalize and promote homosexuality. This is misguided social engineering and indoctrination. As a result, parents are organizing to legally push back, but as you know it's difficult for the average citizen to be heard in the public square and to go to the courts. On the other hand, the government and boards of education have millions of dollars to publicize their ideology and the power to pass policies that make it all lawful.
In our efforts to fight back, last year we established a new association called, The Parental Rights in Education Defense Fund (PRIEDF). This legal strategy is going to be a learning experience for us in Ontario. The association is registered and has five directors. Lawyers are prepared to file at least two lawsuits where they feel they have good cases in which parental rights were violated. As you can understand, the potential plaintiffs will face much emotional stress, and so we can at least assure them that there's some financial backing for them from our fund. If we can get support from concerned Ontario families, the court case will bring attention to this important issue. This could help put parental rights and sexual morality in school curriculum back on the provincial agenda. But only if we act quickly and with financial resources. One court case alone could easily costs fifty to one hundred thousand dollars and more.
A legal proceeding could also compel Dalton McGuinty's Liberal government to think twice about the harm they have legislated for our schools with Bill 13. Let us turn the violation of parental rights into the central issue of irresponsible governance in this province. We need to take action. It is also an opportunity for all Canadians to know and to insist that governments must make it a priority both during and after elections to protect our freedom of religion, marriage, children and family. The time has come to act on our beliefs. Here's some detailed information about the association.

We hope you do consider making a donation to the fund, PRIEDF. Together we can tell the government that parents have the right to direct the moral education of their children. Parents want to have a say in what's taught in schools when it comes to human sexuality and the family. We kindly thank those who have already made a contribution. Please let your friends know about this initiative. Thank you.
