Catholic school angers LGBT community over play


“Boys, Girls and Other Mythological Creatures” is a play meant for children 5 and up, and it introduced the children to a boy questioning his gender.  The play features an 8-year-old boy “Simon/e” who dresses as a girl.

The show, which had been booked in five elementary schools in the Niagara Catholic School District, has now been cancelled.  Although the LGBT community in Canada is unhappy, the Canadian government doesn’t believe discussing transgenderism with small children is appropriate.

Created at the Carousel Playhouse, the show had already been performed at 22 elementary schools, having been on a school tour for three weeks in the Niagara region.  But its first performance at a Niagara Catholic School District on April 25 resulted in the cancellation of it’s performance at 5 additional schools.

LGBT groups accusing the Catholics of being homophobic and transphobic are not swaying conservative groups, who approve the cancellations.

Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life, said the sex-ed curriculum is a “clear and present danger to their precious little ones” and vows to continue the battle against it.

“I praise the school board for canceling this dangerous play but regret they didn’t use it as a teaching moment to set others free with the truth, as Jesus instructed,” Fonseca said.
