Please watch the entire video because the address given is very well researched and eloquent. Fr. Korz's presentation to the HWDSB makes a solid effort based on facts to defend the rights, equality and safety of Christian students. With statistical evidence, he urges the board to fight against Christophobia. In the interest of fairness and justice, there's a need for the board to develop, like they have done for self-identified LGBT, (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) an anti-bullying initiative for Christian students who are bullied because of their faith. Fr. Korz goes on to describe an eight point plan that will similarly protect Christian and all other students. He is asking for no more than what Bill13 and the "Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy" will do for students who express one or more of the sexual orientations.
For parents who are thinking of what they can do now that Bill 13 is law, this presentation offers a number of practical strategies. The ideas can be easily used and modified for a school parent council and to develop a parish/family strategy to push back so that Christian students and students from other cultures have the same rights afforded to them as the LGBT students. We thank Fr. Korz and the association he represents for taking a leadership role in defending not only Christian students, but all students against all kinds of bullying, not limited to sexual orientation.
