Writer feels columnist discouraging debate

Dear editor,

It was with great interest reading Amelia Naismith’s article in the September 21 issue of the Pipestone Flyer; however, just pondering the title, gave me a good indication of where she and those within the LGBTQA community stand on issues. That is, in promoting and forcing their agenda upon us all, without allowing those who may disagree with them, the right to have a voice.

Let’s just look at the title. “Gay-Straight Alliance privacy in schools needs no debate”. Are we to assume that we no longer live in a democratic society that allows all voices to be heard in order to come to a consensus on issues which would then allow a democratic vote to determine the direction we should go in or are we now living in a dictatorship? Let’s now look further at the sub-heading. “Human rights should come before parental rights”. Are we thus to assume that parents are not human and thus do not have the same rights as humans?

As a parent and a human, I would hope that we would all be concerned about all our children in schools and that they all have a safe environment to learn in. Those involved within the LGBTQA community will have you believe that they have that same concern. You see, they are concerned that a child may be privy to vulnerability, isolation, homelessness or potential for child abuse if they belong to a GSA, as Amelia states in her article. But are they concerned for all children. I have yet to read an article that says they do.

When the Progressive Conservatives were in power, they started with the bullying argument. Now that the NDP is in power and in support of the LGBTQA argument, it has been more open about gender identity and such. Don’t be mistaken! They are only concerned about those within the promotion of the LGBTQA agenda. Why? Let me give you some thoughts. Is it not possible that a child could come under the same harm or scrutiny from parents if they had bad marks? Maybe we should not tell the parents. What if a child did not make a sports team if their parents were very athletic when they went to school? Couldn’t that same harm come to them? There are many situations like this that could arise where potentially a child could be abused. But, is there any mention of that from those in the LGBTQA community? Never, as their agenda is only important.

There is one factor that really baffles me though in this. In this day and age, when our society is trying to open the doors for those in the LGBTQA community, those within the community are closing the doors themselves by hiding this issue so that parents do not have the rights to know. And, their using our children to foster their agenda.
