"A Catholic school board in Ontario has voted to fly the pro-homosexual rainbow flag outside all of its school buildings during June in honor of so-called LGBT 'pride month.'
In a 6–3 vote, the Hamilton-Wentworth Catholic District School Board (HWCDSB) in Ontario passed a motion on March 1 to fly the rainbow banner outside of their schools to recognize the homosexual lifestyle-affirming movement, standing directly against the Catholic teaching supposedly upheld by the school’s administrators.
Board trustee Mark Valvasori – who unsuccessfully proposed the motion to the board last year – told board members at the March 1 meeting that, despite the 'polarizing' nature of the anti-Catholic LGBT movement, embracing its symbols is for the benefit of pupils.
'[The] motion is all about the kids,' Valvasori insisted...
In addition to contradicting the Catholic teaching on human sexuality, the term 'pride' in salvation history denotes an explicit refusal to follow God and God’s law. Raising the pride flag thus denies the Catholic faith the school purports to uphold."
