Am I an alarmist? I only wish. This is reality.
Just a few weeks ago, the Ontario provincial government passed Bill 89- the “Supporting Children, Youth and Families Act, 2017”- which among other things, will allow for the state to remove gender questioning children from their home if their parents aren’t providing them access to treatment.
So if 12-year-old Sally wants to be a boy, and she tells her school teacher or family doctor that mom and dad won’t let her wear a chest binder, take hormone blockers, or provide her access to gender reassignment surgery, well, there’s a good chance little Sally will be taken away and placed into a more supportive environment.
Even the Michael Coteau, Ontario Minister of Children and Youth Services declared:
“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way [LGBT+] and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” and “If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
So what does this mean? It means that the radical sex-ed forced into schools two years ago was just the tip of the iceberg; Ontario is now even more hostile to Catholic parents.
As Catholics we believe God created us male and female, that gender and sexuality are one and the same. This has been the belief of civilization for thousands of years. However, in the last few years our “modern” society has been turned upside down with gender ideology, and Bill 89 is proof of that.
Most of us probably wouldn’t care too much about the transgender fad “as long as it doesn’t affect me,” right?
However with Bill 89 it does affect you: your children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Catholic parenting is a target of Bill 89.
If you are a Catholic, and you rear your kids with Catholic morality, you are at odds with this new Ontario law.
Welcome to our new absurd reality.
