Christian Father Sues to Keep Kids From Learning About Sex and Sexuality but He's Not a Bigot

There are 320 comments on the www.womanist-musings.com story from Sep 10, 2012, titled Christian Father Sues to Keep Kids From Learning About Sex and Sexuality but He's Not a Bigot. In it, www.womanist-musings.com reports that:

Steve Tourloukis, a parent whose kids attend school in the Hamilton-Wentworth area, has asked to be given advanced notice when the teacher plans to teach sex education, so that he may remove his children in order not to conflict with the Greek Orthodox Christian teachings in the home. When the request was denied, he decided to sue.

Okay, I understand that Dr. Tourloukis has religious beliefs; however, schools are public institutions funded by public dollars. I highly suspect that his issue has a lot to do with schools teaching about same sex families and homosexuality. If he really didn't have a problem with the LGBT community, he wouldn't have an issue with his children learning that members of the GLBT community deserve equal treatment in society and should not exist with a stigmatized identity. As it is, the information given in school does not even approach the necessary level to teach children about heterosexism, cissexsm, homophobia and transphobia.

Public schools in Canada have no problem teaching sex education, including homosexuality. The Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms has included anti discrimination coverage for LGBT Canadians for years so it's no surprise Canadian sex education covers more than just heterosexuality.
The stupid effing American trolls on here think every story takes place in the United States. What can you expect from a country where people think Moscow is the capital of Nigeria? Someone I knew there asked me if there was a town named Ottawa in Canada, too.

Canada only matters because of its vast natural resources.
America will always protect what rightfully belongs to us (Canada) because we pay to protect it so Canadians don't have to anymore.
Canada can dump the taxpayer money they don't have to pay for their own self defence (subsidized by the United States taxpayer) into a cesspool of Leftist policy and idiocy.
Canada is a textbook case of what happens when America keeps handing out the welfare.
Canada isn't even a free country.

Not that America is either, just sayin.

It only became apparent to me that this was a story about Canadian homofascism after reading the comments.
America protects Canada with trillions in military force and Canada just continues whining about their precious little queers.
Typical.

Protects Canada from whom?

If you stopped wasting all your taxes on a bloated, insecurity-inspired military, and instead supported a true United Nations/NATO task force, you'd actually have money for health care!

Keep telling yourself whatever you have to to keep from feeling like history's big joke. The only thing that's destroying America is the appalling lack of education and awareness that exists in your dumb populace. Two generations of navel-gazing does that...

And that appalling lack of education and awareness leads DIRECTLY to Democrats and liberalism which is EXACTLY what's destroying America. Teh Obamaniac has cut our military to the bone ! If we were bulding thousands of now tanks, and thousnads of new planes and thousands of new ships, and thousands of new submarines, we wouldn't have the Obamaniac rececession and a record high unemployment rate ! TRILLIONS FOR DEFENSE BUT NOT ONE CENT FOR THE OBAMANIAC !

He is Evil. PURE EVIL.

You can start with our Zionism and Muslim conflict. Or how bout our porous southern border of new democratic voters and the cocaine or meth that comes with it. If this country were uninhabited you'd have a problem. A very very big problem!

However, that said, the people who *watch you complaining about what your kids learn* have every right to call you an uneducated, spineless moron for wanting to AVOID certain subjects.

That's what kills me.

These "religious" people do this and then act like *crybaby morons* when they get criticized for it. They're the LAST people whose feelings I care about when I am being as critical as I damn well please; they have *zero* concern for the feelings of people they *HARASS* all day long. You open your mouth; I *SHALL* open mine, count on it, the end.

A good and decent parent will do what is necessary to protect his child from government-brainwashing.

Kudos to this brave father for undertaking a lawsuit such as this in such an unfree country as homofascist-Canada.
The queers in Canada will gas this guy in a chamber and grille him for lunch.
With some spuds.

Note the delusion that *every last soul* who is not savagely, ferally, monstrously antigay is somehow the "enemy" and that there is a quite literal GOVERNMENT PLOT, so we are told, to force these things upon the nation.

That, in itself, is a psychological sickness I cannot wrap my mind around.

It indicates a stubborn hatred so deep-seated that I believe such people to be clear, present, blatant, unequivocal dangers to society.

Not necessarily *highly* dangerous, but dangerous nonetheless, abso-goddamn-lutely.

It's pretty obvious you don't know jack about Canada.
Or much of anything else, for that matter.

When I'm online and I'm sitting here and I watch *someone like you* telling me I "know nothing," I don't buy it.

I presume I shot your declarations full of holes and you want to pretend you can save your dignity.

If I took such a monstrous shit all over dignity, why in hell would you give me *another* chance to rip you a new one again?

Because ... you're the one who's not intelligent,

not me.

Funny how that works.

If you are REALLY a teacher, I do feel sorry for your students, because they are not learning a thing from you.

Did you fail geogrpahy AND English ? "America" is a colloquialism for The United States Of America. The 2 continents in the western hemisphere are North America and South America.
