Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

  The health and physical education curriculum for Ontario needed to be updated, but the manner and content of the “updating” has been dishonest and disrespectful toward parents. The process has been a continuation of the social engineering launched by this provincial government in 2008-2010 under then Education Minister Kathleen Wynne. Unhappy with the pace of implementation of its Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy the Liberal government amended the Education ... (Continue reading)

The Liberals’ desperate turn

The Liberals’ desperate turn

The Liberal Party has heeded that old adage of advertising: if you have a problem, feature it.  After decades in the ascendancy as the most winningest party in the West, they have all but collapsed. A string of feckless leaders – Martin, Dion, Ignatieff – have left the Natural Governing Party without their aura of inevitability. But their very desperation has attuned them to the weaknesses of their thin-principled ... (Continue reading)

Children from large families less likely to divorce

Scientists have found that children from larger families may have lower divorce rates. Sociology professor Doug Downey, assistant professor Donna Bobbitt-Zeher, and graduate student Joseph Merry from Ohio State University presented their findings at the annual meeting of the American Sociological Association on August 13, 2013. Data from the General Social Survey, which involves interviews with 57,000 American adults between 1972 and 2002, showed that having an additional sibling (up to a maximum of seven) gave additional protection from future divorce, ...

Grade-by-grade breakdown of Wynne’s graphic new sex-ed program

Grade-by-grade breakdown of Wynne’s graphic new sex-ed program

While the Ontario Liberal government under lesbian Premier Kathleen Wynne would have parents believe its newly unveiled sex-ed program is an unbiased presentation of fact, a detailed look at what kids in grades 1-8 are expected to learn reveals something entirely different. The 2015 Health and Physical Education program states in its earliest pages that sexual health “is more than simply teaching young people about the anatomy and physiology of ... (Continue reading)

L-G-B-T, X-Y-Zee, now I know my ABCs

Sanders, Wynne and sex ed. When Mark Steyn alluded to Kathleen Wynne’s renewed attempt to smuggle her radical “sex education” curriculum into the elementary school classroom (I’d call it a hidden agenda, but only conservatives have hidden agendas), Indigo CEO Heather Reisman nearly fell off her hostess chair. Interrupting her interview with Steyn on his new book, Canada’s self-proclaimed Reader-in-Chief protested, “I’ve never heard of that.” ... (Continue reading)

Ten reasons to reject Wynne’s sex education curriculum

Ten reasons to reject Wynne’s sex education curriculum

As the Ontario government gets ready to bring back the radical sex education curriculum for Ontario’s children, here are ten reasons why parents should reject it in spite of the political correctness propaganda that supports it. Children don’t need to know all the mechanics of sex before they are emotionally, physically, intellectually, and spiritually old enough to understand what they are being taught. Scrap the curriculum and spend the money ... (Continue reading)

Incest and the next frontier for civil and human rights

This is painfully sad and pervertedly sick at the same time. New York magazine: "What It’s Like to Date Your Dad." The story begins talking about biological relatives reunited after adoption and the sexual attraction that can occur (some research suggests that in half of all cases one of the relatives feels a Genetic Sexual Attraction or GSA). The bulk of the story is an interview with an 18-year-old bisexual girl who lost her virginity to her biological father ... (Continue reading)

The brave new world of three- and four-parent babies

As British scientists lobby for permission to create three-parent embryos, some bioethicists are calling for the creation of four-parent babies. In an article for the November edition of the Journal of Medical Ethics, John Harris, César Palacios-González, and Giuseppe Testa suggest using stem cells to create eggs and sperm (in vitro generated gametes or IVG) to allow for “multiplex parenting.” The bioethicists note that the ability to create stem cells out of adult somatic cells instead of relying on embryonic stem ...

Dare we hope?

Dare we hope?

On Christmas morning, children in our homes—and in the homes of our grown children—will bound down stairs to wonder at the arrival of wrapped gifts. Straining at the limit of a joy which is almost pain, they will wait with infinite impatience to open them. And, with something as trivial as the latest electronic amusement or toy, these innocent recipients will experience surprises surpassing their wildest hopes, leaving them ... (Continue reading)

Homeschooling is countercultural

Brigitte Pellerin points to an excellent post about staying sane as a homeschooling parent, and adds an important point herself: If you're homeschooling many people will automatically assume you're not sane to begin with, and they do have a point, so don't overstress yourself. You do what's best for your family and that's just that. You do not need to conform to other people's expectations of what your life ought to be like. The decision to homeschool, like ...
