The United Nation’s LGBTQ Agenda to Indoctrinate Children Worldwide.

      

The UN LGBTQ Agenda to Indoctrinate Children Worldwide.

Exposing the Driving Force Behind the LGBTQ Political Movement.

The following Report is an Alert advising of the current war we find ourselves in, for the hearts
and minds of our children, against Sexually Deviant Activists pushing unscientific and trans
ideology in an attempt to deconstruct the family and cultural norms. This report is intended to
equip Elected officials, Leaders of the Church, and all Citizens with facts and resources
necessary to counter the lies and misinformation. We must be informed and no longer permit
the soft language of inclusion, acceptance and equality to silence the critical opposition
necessary to preserve a strong, moral, and democratic society. To protect Freedom of
Speech and Freedom of Belief.

There are legitimate concerns and significant objections to the ever-increasing amount of
political propaganda associated with the LGBTQ2+ sex activist lobby initiated by the United
Nations, directed at our children and society as a whole.

This includes:

 Comprehensive Sex Education, Eg, SOGI 123 BC schools (indoctrination) (more
information below)
• Changing the Human Rights Act to include gender expression and gender identity

• Pride Parades (warning graphic images)
 Rainbow crosswalks , Flags,
 Rainbow stickers (intended to create ‘safe’ spaces? Do we assume these spaces were
unsafe prior to the stickers or is it propaganda?)
 Public Imagery (please sign petition)
• media, legal documents, forced pronouns, women’s/children’s private spaces, attacks
against personal beliefs and convictions, freedom of speech, businesses, etc.

The creator of the Pride flag, Gilbert Baker, did not mince words when he declared its meaning,

“That’s what flags are for. “Flags are about proclaiming power”… that
visibility is Key to our success and to our justice.”

With this in mind…do we want the rainbow flag being raised at our schools claiming
power over our youth? …or our cities?

The loud voice afforded to the LGBTQ2++ activists must be tempered and it is imperative that

the voice of reason, rationale and commonsense prevail.

 

To be clear, opposition is not against the individual peacefully living their lives. It is aimed

directly at those who are attacking Canadian’s Rights, Freedoms and Democracy. The

LGBTQ 2++ activists are attempting to mask their intentions as a noble cause yet cloaked in

deceptive language. This is not a harmless, benign agenda to promote inclusion, anti-bullying

and equivalent human rights.

 

The once earnest cause to support the LGBTQ community has mutated into an ideological

demonization of hetero-normativity by the LGBTQ2++ political movement which now exploits

the gay and lesbian community using them to vilify and attack our society’s concepts of

gender. Disguised as “Social Justice Warriors” the political movement is inflicting and

imposing lies and misinformation in order to advance their agenda to deconstruct the family,

remove parental rights and sexualize our children.

 

Anyone who does not agree is attacked using hateful bullying tactics, labelling those who

oppose as Nazi, Alt Right, homophobic, transphobic, intolerant, bigots. Victimization of this

group has enabled manipulation of our anti-hate laws wherein you can now be convicted for

your ‘Speech’. Opposition is no longer a Freedom. It has been replaced by the “Thought

Police”. The Sex Activists no longer strive for acceptance, their goal is domination of ‘their’

worldview.

 

The Canadian Human Rights Act, both federally and provincially, was specifically amended to

give special privilege to the LGBTQ community by adding ‘gender identity and gender

expression’ – an unnecessary decision as the Charter of Rights and Freedoms already

covered the protection of citizens equally.

 

Section 15 (1): “Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the

equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination”.

 

However, the amendment now permits individuals to force unscientific delusions on the rest of

society and demands, not only acceptance, but participation. If you refuse to comply there is

the risk of being dragged before the Human Rights Council, thus being forced to forfeit

freedom of thought and belief.

 

The change to the Human Rights Code is in conflict with the provision of rights permitted in

the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The HR code must be challenged and

rescinded.

 

The “Duty of State Neutrality” also stipulates neutrality must be adhered to and upheld by

elected officials, who must do so without favour and in respect of the law. Giving special rights

to one group is divisive and unlawful.


The Supreme Court of Canada addressed this issue in Mouvement laïque québécois v. Saguenay
(City), 2015 SCC 16, [2015] 2 S.C.R. 3 (para 72 -74). it stated:

 

• [73]…“When the state adheres to a belief, it is not merely expressing an opinion on the subject. It is creating a hierarchy of beliefs and casting doubt on the value of those it does not share. It is also ranking the individuals who hold such beliefs:

• [74]”By expressing no preference, the state ensures that it preserves a neutral public space that is free of discrimination and in which true freedom to believe or not to believe is enjoyed by everyone equally, given that everyone is valued equally.

The UN Convention on the Rights of a Child supports parental rights in raising children and determining best practices. Article 14;[2]

• [2] Parties shall respect the rights and duties of the parents and, when applicable, legal guardians, to provide direction to the child in the exercise of his or her right in a manner consistent with the evolving capacities of the child.

UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights 26(3)

• (3) Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

In spite of this, there is currently a dangerous agenda, set by the UN “Human Rights Council” who appointed an LGBTQ Czar, Vitit Muntarbhorn, to ensure ‘every’ UN Member Nation complies with the following 5 point mandate:

 decriminalize sodomy,

 prevent mental health professionals from treating homosexuality as a disorder,

 ensure legal documents reflect individuals’ subjective gender identity,

• impose social acceptance of homosexuality, including by challenging religions,

• and indoctrinating children and society through propaganda at all levels.

UN Goals For Humanity Target Children as “Agents of Change”.

It comes in the form of the aforementioned Comprehensive Sexuality EducationIt is supported by theUNFPA , UNICEF, IPPF, UNESCO and the UN World Health Organization. CSE is a program that “seeks to change sexual and gender norms in children as early as possible”. Instructing children 0-4 to be taught about masturbation, 4-6 to be taught about same sex relationships, etc.

The UN’s edict is already a full reality in Canada with the overwhelming support and endorsement from the Prime Minister and the Liberal and NDP governments.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau lowered the age of anal sex from 18 to 16 in support of the UNHRC’s objective.

The depth of sexual depravity has no limit, opening the door to incest and bestiality.

Bill C-16 (known as the bathroom bill) amended the Canadian Human Rights Act, federally, to add gender identity and gender expression to the list of prohibited grounds of discrimination aligning with the demands of the UNHRC, allowing –

• men into women’s washrooms and change rooms, putting women and children at risk.

 boys into girls change rooms and bathrooms

• boys/men to compete in girls/women’s sports.

• access to women’s prisons and women’s shelters.

**Note**- the majority of transgender males are fully intact. Consider the risks for women in shelters andprisons.

Consider the sacrifice of women athletes, who train vigorously to compete, only to be outdone by a male counterpart. Losing scholarships and opportunities. Is a transgender’s journey to glory more important than a biological woman’s?

Gender Neutral bathrooms, in High Schools, “Students” are protesting decision. Boys and Girls are being forced to use the same bathroom and showers. Open space between stalls, risk of filming.

One of the most heinous organizations is one in which paedophiles are re-branding themselves as “MAPs” or “Minor Attracted Persons” in an effort to gain acceptance and sympathy and be included into the LGBT community. The blanket term MAP includes infantophiles (infants), paedophiles (pre-pubescent children), hebephiles (pubescent children), and ephebophiles (post-pubescent children). Having gone so far as to create their own flag. Refer to Video exposing the push for Paedophilia (**full version).

Gender neutral and non-binary pronouns have been imposed, no matter how illogical.

A beauty pageant in Spain recently allowed a transgender male to participate… and win. And will now be the first biological male to compete in the Miss Universe Pageant. “There are women with a penis and men with a vagina, because the only key part of being a woman is to be and feel like a woman,” ‘she’ said.

The transgender movement is fraudulently attacking the unique creation, value and beauty of womanhood and emasculating boys/men and their unique creation and strengths.

Facts about transgenderism.

An egregious component of the LGBTQ agenda is against individuals who are caught in this lifestyle and may be victims of childhood abuse. Whether sexual, physical, or emotional, it has had a powerful and lasting effect on the psyche and, if left untreated, manifests itself in the form of self-abuse such as drugs, alcohol, eating disorders, depression, suicidal tendencies, self-mutilation and unhealthy relationships. Due to the gross agenda of the radical LGBTQ2+, these individuals are being exploited and marginalized rather than genuinely being supported through counselling and care in a safe and healthy environment.

A priority of the Homosexual Agenda is to prohibit and outlaw conversion therapy, particularly for teenagers. This is an attack against a parent’s right to provide counselling for their child. Vancouver has banned conversion therapy and several U.S. states have enacted such laws. This would effectively ban all forms of therapy or the sale of material to help anyone who sought freedom from homosexual urges or gender confusion to seek faith-based counselling and resources.

Conversion Therapy Report – In debunking the LGBTQ’s claim that Conversion Therapy is ineffective former chief psychologist “Nicholas A. Cummings, declares, “Gays and lesbians have the right to be affirmed in their homosexuality.” However, he also wrote in USA Today that “of the patients I oversaw who sought to change their orientation, “Hundreds were successful”.

Good News – Recent push back in California by faith-based organizations, family counselors, church leaders,OnceGay and citizens alike, recently defeated a bill to ban conversion therapy.

Puberty blockers have been approved for children/youth who are questioning their gender. Despite the fact that, statistically, 80–95% of children work through confusion to eventually embrace their birth gender if not discouraged from doing so. In an effort to force parents to comply, new Ontario law allows gov’t to seize children if parents oppose their gender identity. Puberty blockers are extremely harmful and leaves permanent damage. Puberty blockers sterilize children. Invasive surgery has been approved for youth, removing perfectly healthy body parts. Youth are not permitted to vote, buy alcohol or drugs until they are 18 or 19 but life-changing, permanent surgery, mutilating their bodies, is somehow acceptable. This is child abuse.

Individuals who have undergone sex reassignment surgery have a 20 times greater rate of committing suicide than the general population.

Sex Change Regret Stories. those who underwent “sex change” operations but then experienced regret and ended up accepting their biological sex.

“Sex is a binary biological characteristic of the human person that is established by our DNA at conception.One is conceived either male or female. Gender, in contrast, is a term that refers to the psychological and cultural characteristics associated with biological sex. Gender identity refers to an individual’s awareness of being male or female and is sometimes referred to as an individual’s “experienced gender.” Gender identity has to do with thoughts and feelings.”

Pediatrician explains why the transgender movement is a fraud.

American College of Pediatricians reports Gender Ideology Harms Children.

Health hazards of homosexuality and mounting health care costs. Syphilis rates continue to climb amongst gay men as well as oral cancer and anal cancer. “Among men who have sex with men (MSM), the incidence of anal cancer is significantly more prevalent and increasing annually”, as reported by the National LGBT Cancer Network.

In BC, taxpayers are covering the full cost for individuals to receive HIV prevention medication.$15,000/per year per person. While diabetics, and others, are forced to pay for their life-saving drugs, gay men, who choose to take part in risky sex, are fully covered.

“Millions” of taxpayer dollars are paid every year, throughout the provinces, to fund LGBTQ2+ organizations.

Gladd is the media arm of the LGBTQ (USA). It “works with news, entertainment, sports, and

social media in an attempt to share LGBT stories in an aim to change society.” “GLAAD has already empowered itself by being able to use a mass communication tool to build and frame its agenda with the assistance of the mass media. …Furthermore, less appealing truths are avoided in an aim to strategically advance the organization’s goals for an overall perceived greater good, even at the potential harm created by such avoidance”. EGALE is a Canadian version.

Flags and Crosswalks – A method of self-victimization is advancing the LGBTQ’s movement. The rainbow crosswalk and flag are key to their progress as they conquer one city/school after another, claiming these symbols are inclusive of everyone.

The pride parades are vile, exposing children to degeneracy, nudity, perversion, bondage and extreme sexual fetishes and indecent acts. (Warning graphic images) If parents took their child to a strip club the child would very likely be removed from the parent’s care, yet taking children to Pride ‘Festivals” is acceptable.

Foster care and adoption. There are growing instances wherein traditional families are being demonized and priority is being given to placing children with gay couples, despite children having lived for many years in a traditional home, and the foster parent’s willingness to adopt them.The best interest of the child is being overlooked, yielding to a Political agenda.

In July 2016 the BC Human Rights Code was changed to include ‘gender identity or expression’ (Bill 27),provincially, without the public’s awareness… yet 100 sex activists showed up for the vote. Then BC Premier, Christi Clarke, reportedly, ordered her MLA’s to vote in support or else! 1st, 2nd and 3rd reading all in one day. This opened the door…very timely….to secretly launch the SOGI 123 Resource Sept./2016 into numerous school districts.

Around the world this agenda is rapidly progressing. Once the Human Rights Code is amended to include ‘gender identity and expression’, opposition is stifled and the invasive sex-ed resource follows shortly thereafter.

SOGI 123 Resource is an example of what is being integrated into every facet of the Canadian Education system beginning in Kindergarten to grade 12. Including the indoctrination of teachers (a UBC program is required to obtain degree). The resource teaches and promotes normalization of homosexuality, transgenderism and gender dysphoria. Parental rights are being violated and the resource is a threat to our child’s identity, values, morals and religious beliefs.

SOGI teaches children that gender is fluid, they can be a boy, a girl, anything in between or neither,teaching explicit sexual behaviour well beyond their intellectual capacity. Instructing teachers they can no longer use the term boy and girl, mother and father, pink or blue, stick people, removing celebratingmother’s/father’s day in school, to question parental authority, etc…the list goes on. (Refer to further SOGI resource links provided below).

Drag Queen story time for children in schools and public librariesThe trend began in San Francisco and is quickly moving throughout Canadian public libraries.

The BC Ministry of Education is demanding every child be taught the SOGI 123 resource and has intentionally intertwined it throughout the curriculum to ensure parents cannot have their child opt out.

SOGI 123 was created by the ARC foundation in partnership with the BC Ministry of Education, BC Teacher’s Federation, UBC Faculty of Education and local, national and international, LGBTQ community organizations. *** Sogi Backgrounder

**Note** – No Child Psychologist or Parental input was given in the development of the SOGI 123 Resource.

The resource was created in violation of The 1989, Order in Council Statement of Education Policy Order which requires that parents participate in the development of policies.

The OIC states:

• Parents: have the right and responsibility to participate in the process of determining the educational goals, policies and services provided for their children. They have a primary responsibility to ensure that children are provided with the healthy and supportive environment necessary for learning. They have a responsibility to help shape and support the goals of the school system and to share in the tasks of educating their young.

The BC School Act also states that parents are entitled to be informed of a student’s behaviour and progress in school and that a parent may consult with school staff with respect to the student’s educational program, yet, in spite of these legal privileges that are granted to parents, the SOGI 123 agenda uses “confidentiality” as grounds for not involving parents in this crucial part of their child’s education.

Alberta recently passed a bill prohibiting parents from being informed if their child joins a GSA (Gay Straight Alliance) club at school. GSA’s are supported by organizations who produce gay porn.

SOGI was a Trojan horse, brought into schools under the guise of anti-bullying and to teach children to be “Inclusive” and support LGBTQ2+ students. However, the SOGI 123 resource goes way beyond this to indoctrinating kids into unhealthy sexual behaviour and confusion through lies and misinformation.

Many teachers and parents are unaware of the resource as the Ministry of Education has intentionally neglected to inform the public. Parents are also unaware that activities have been in place in schools, for many years, that seemed benign, but were also created by the ARC foundation, ‘Out in Schools‘ (warning graphic), the Queer Film Festival, and others directly associated with the LGBTQ political movement. ‘Out in Schools’ is associated with the Queer Film Festival who produce gay porn. **The ARC foundation, reportedly, funds the Queer Film Festival. The websites have exposed students to explicit gay porn.

An example of an activity held without parental consent or knowledge is Sex at LunchHosted by teachers for students at a Vancouver public high school. The students were instructed not to tell theirs parents.

It is vital for parents to engage their children and youth in conversation.

Take Action…Print, sign and present the following Declaration of Family Rights to your school principal and take authority over your child’s education. Please read the instructions carefully.

This political agenda can be revoked. But parents, educators and leaders, must get involved. In Ontario, under the leadership of a new provincial government, the Wynne sex-ed curriculum is currently being repealed due to the strong opposition of Parents As First Educators (PAFE). An organization who are rallying parents through a grassroots movement. In BCCulture Guard is working tirelessly to do the same.

Society is being turned upside down for the trans community who make up approximately.01% of the population (combined LGBTQ 3%).

The LGBTQ2+ Political Lobby group are not interested in creating genuine unity but instead, because of their consistent overreach into every facet of society, are provoking resentment due to their contentious demands…thus the political symbol of the crosswalk in turn becomes a contentious matter as is the flag. This is a massive movement viciously imposing their agenda by forging through society voraciously consuming anything in its path that does not agree or conform to their ideology. They trample on the Charter Rights of all faith groups, Christians, fellow citizens, and create unequal rights, for a small, select group, with venomous precision. The double standard, through their intolerance and mean spirited attacks against individuals, the family unitchurchesbusinessesand universities, is evidence.

Elected Officials, Teachers and Parents who have naively decided to support the SOGI 123 resource, rainbow crosswalks and the raising of the flags, may have had good intentions but truly need to step back and understand the detrimental consequences of the LGBTQ2+ movement. It is a Social Engineering Propaganda machine. Accomplished through manipulating our laws, our sense of fairness, compassion and sympathy.

Hiding behind the beauty of the rainbow does not negate the evil it now encompasses.

The original biblical meaning of the Rainbow is one of grace for humanity and undeserved favour.

Reportedly the Prime Minister and every Liberal and NDP (NDPleader, as well as some in the Conservative party, support Bill C-16 and the LGBTQ2+ agenda.

Governments, including our school boards, which we support with our taxes, and which we have helped to elect, are misusing their powers to undermine parental authority and institute this harmful propaganda.

Therefore it is time to:

• Scrutinize the values and policies of ‘every’ elected official – School Trustees, City Councilors, Mayors, MLA’s, MP’s, etc.

• Demand the Canadian Government pull out of the UN.

• Demand ‘gender expression and gender identity’ be removed from the Human Rights

Code, both provincially and federally.

We respect an individual’s right to live according to their own beliefs but when it so forcefully impedes on the rights of others, with such devastating consequences, there must be fierce, swift and righteous opposition.

Rise up Canada, Rise up Parents and Leaders, from all faith groups and backgrounds!

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil

is for good men to do nothing!

RAINBOW FLAG

 BC Ferries—steering a course set by the transgender lobby and its political agents

On Thursday night I attended a Campbell River meeting of the Freedom Defence Council, a growing grass roots made-in-Vancouver Island group of some 200 social conservatives.. The meeting was intense, informative and geared for action. The discussion moved from the broader picture—the demolition of our Christian heritage and culture and the war on free speech —to the immediate threat posed by the aggressively imperialistic transgender lobby, insatiable in its appetite for more public spaces to occupy.

Specifically, it was about the alarming imposition of LGTBQ posters and banners and flags on city owned facilities, and the implementation of a trans-friendly curriculum in schools.  To give you a measure of these conquests,   on Pride Day, the public library even hosted a Drag Queen Folk Tales event for children! Lesbian sex toys were  on full display at a nearby waterside public park—with  children in close proximity! Dolls are apparently passé. Dildos are the rage now.

The conclusion is inescapable.  Children are being sexualized with few ‘safe’ spaces to find refuge.  One powerful lobby group has claimed the public space.  Their message:  Move over or go home—and shut up.  The media and the politicians are on our side and the BC Human Rights Tribunal stands behind us.

Hmm.  This sounds pretty alarmist. Are things really that bad? Are the barbarians really at the gates, or inside them?  The answer came soon.

When I took the returning ferry to Quadra Island, I noticed that the ship was flying the rainbow Pride flag,  17 days after Pride Day! This is on  a taxpayer subsidised ship! Which made me think that it would be appropriate if the BC Ferries Corp. was renamed the” BC Fairies Corp”.  Should that change transpire, I may one day feel compelled to do something I would never have dreamed of doing.  I may have to run to catch a fairy. But I will be damned if I’m ever made to ride one! I’d rather swim.

If the BC Ferries Corp was indeed to become the BC Fairies Corp maybe the CEO should be replaced in favour of a Rear Admiral, eg. Svend Robinson. After all, every vessel in the fleet can unload at either end, although docking can be problematic at times.   Since most ships are referred to as “she”, as in “there she blows”, it is certain that this sexist practice will be soon come to an end when our progressive provincial NDP-Green government realizes that the fate of the nation depends on its immediate termination.  Every ship must eventually be referred to using a non-binary pronoun, or maybe a traditional pronoun with a gay male connotation, as in “there he blows”.

 Perhaps BC Fairies vessels could be gender fluid. They could leave one terminal as a ‘she’, and arrive at the destination terminal as a ‘he’, depending on the fluctuating mood of the non-binary captain who was hired to meet the new quota targets. “ The Queen of New Westminster” could leave the Tsawassen terminal at 11 am and be received 90 minutes later in Swartz Bay as “The King of New Westminster”.  Alternatively, the vessel could simply be called the “Drag Queen of New Westminster”, a venue for reading Queer Folk Tales to children with or without parental approval or supervision. Tsawassen-to-Swartz Bay and back could then become a world class trans-portation route.

 If the vessel should collide with another, take on water and begin to sink, the “women and children first” protocol would have to be changed to a “gender dysphoric children and gender fluid mothers first” rule. Biological male passengers eager to claim a seat on a lifeboat would not need to offer proof that they are actually women–they need only declare that they presently ‘identify’ as a woman. Any ship officer or crew who would challenge such an assertion would be subject to immediate dismissal and a BC Human Rights complaint adjudicated by political hacks.  To hammer that point home, vessels would be re-christened to honour the contributions of trans activists who have contributed so much to our progressive and tolerant society, especially in the area of free speech. How does “MTV Morgane Oger” sound? It would be designated as the Mother Ship of the fleet, but It wouldn’t need a wide berth owing to the fact that it can’t give birth.

Seriously, as one speaker at the meeting said, “Things are moving so fast that if we don’t soon get off our butts, organize and ACT now, it will be game over….for one thing, we need the ability to call upon a quick response group to counteract Antifa and LGBT bully groups who show up to shout us down…..of those in our congregations who feel as strongly as we do, many feel too intimidated to stand up to them……as a result, our children are being abducted by this evil cult, made ever more powerful by the ardent support it receives from local council, the provincial government, and the local media…. (words to that effect).

The issue here is not just about free speech, but the flagrant transgression of the formerly respected boundary between ideology and state.  The former is the privilege of the elected custodians of the state, and the latter is, or should be, a neutral instrument employed impartially for the benefit of all taxpayers regardless of their political orientation.  In an authentically democratic nation, civil servants, public sector employees and the institutions they work in should be politically neutral.  In Canada, neither the RCMP, nor a City Hall, nor a public school, nor a public library, nor a publicly subsidized ferry—to cite a few examples—should dare display a political message that promotes a given ideology no matter how many citizens there are who may ascribe to it.  That’s basic Canadian Civics 101.

But in the emerging soft totalitarian society, the Party that controls the state, feels little compunction in using public resources to propagate a partisan line and commandeering  state property for use as a platform for that same purpose.  In this case, they frame their shameless display of rainbow flags and posters as an acknowledgement and celebration of the ‘diversity’ that exists in our society. But they celebrate cultural or sexual ‘diversity’  to the utter neglect of the ideological diversity that is as much a reality in the community as anything else.  The Left is keen on the diversity of people, but not on the diversity of ideas.  They are all for “inclusion”, but their inclusion is not inclusive of ideas and views they detest.

 They assume that all taxpayers are on the same page. They pretend that Christians and social conservatives do not exist, or if they do, are too marginal and too out of sync with the times to warrant consideration. In their eyes, conservative thought or expression is an atavism that needs to be suppressed, silenced and ignored, until its aged proponents  pass into the dustbin of history. The implication is clear.  Bigots pay taxes, but they do not deserve representation—or an audience for that matter. Consequently, our entreaties and LTEs are ignored.

 Soon, it seems, the rainbow flag will be a permanent feature of every flag pole every day of every week in the calendar. The most worrisome part of this story is, as a few speakers pointed out, the active dissidents are predominantly male, white and over 60, and the pastors are too timid and ostrich-like to lead them or rally younger parishioners to the cause.  They choose to ignore the fact that if the bullies continue to have their way,  ten years hence their churches may be on life support. If that.  The window is rapidly closing and having feasted on blood,  the sharks are circling ever closer. We need the younger generation to step up and pick up the torch. That was the consensus.
