RAY: Who has the right to teach our children when it comes to issues of morality? Are we going to sit back and let the state assume this role? This is a letter hot off the press that was sent to me this morning. I recommend that if you live in Canada that you talk to your local MP about this matter. Write into your local newspaper. I must applaud those that are able to withdraw their children from the public education system and home school them when I read reports like this.

The New Norms
“Have you been ‘re-normed’ yet?”
Maybe you haven’t, but the campaign to re-norm your children has already started—at school.
In January of this year, the managing editor of Vancouver’s homosexual newspaper made a startling declaration: “We will teach your kids the new norms!”
That campaign is not really new; it’s been lurking in the woodwork for at least four years, probably longer. In 2008, writing in the Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy, Catherine McGregor of the University of Victoria published an article entitled “Norming and forming: Challenging heteronormativity in educational policy discourses”.
Who is Catherine McGregor? Dr. McGregor is an associate professor of Leadership Studies at the University of Victoria. Particularly interested in promoting the role of teachers, as leaders in schools and communities, on bringing about social and educational change, she says, she represents UVic as a member of the Educational Leadership Network, and is a member of the BC College of Teachers—that’s the organization that violated the free speech rights of BC teacher Chris Kempling, you may remember.
She has clout in the field of public education. She’s also been a member of the NDP for more than 40 years. She is a doctrinaire socialist, so when she writes about “re-norming” the culture, we need to beware. She starts from the position that everything traditional is wrong, wrong, wrong! Especially “heteronormativity”. In her 38-page treatise in the Canadian Journal of Educational Administration and Policy she clearly wants to re-shape the entire society that our children and grandchildren are going to grow up in. She wants to manipulate their minds and their attitudes, especially about “heteronormativity”.
What is “heteronormativity”?
It’s the assumption, universal in all human societies and cultures for millennia, that the normal or default setting for human sexuality is intimacy and dependence between two individuals, one male and one female.
Under the “new norms” the radical sex activists want to teach to your children, “heteronormativity” is a no-no.
In fact to them, everything “hetero” is a no-no.
Can they “re-norm” the culture? They believe they can, and they’re determined that they will—and you will have no voice nor vote in the matter. Just shut up and let your betters, like Catherine McGregor, tell your children that you’re wrong, wrong, wrong!
Moving from “normative”(that is to say, what has for millennia been regarded as “normal”) to “reformative” policy practices— the prescription favoured by Dr. McGregor and her cadre of revolutionaries prefer — means chucking out what has been normal and stable and replacing it with the acronyms, symbols and perversions of the LGBTTIQQ—regardless of the opinions of students, parents, pastors, priests and more traditional educators. Your betters (the sophisticated intelligentsia) will tell you what you ought to want.
