28 Nov 2018 BC: Ask your MLA to oppose Motion 33’s endorsement of SOGI 123

SOGI 123 which deals with how sexual orientation and gender identity are taught in British Columbia classrooms is couched as an anti-bullying initiative, but it is far more.

This in direct contradiction to a Christian understanding of sexuality, its God-given design, its corruption by sin, and its need for redemption through the Cross.

15 Dec 2017 What to Wear to a Worm Wedding: Highlights from BC’s SOGI Curriculum

By Tabitha Ewert, Articling Student The schools back in my hometown of Langley, BC, have a re-designed “SOGI” curriculum. For those unfamiliar with the term, SOGI is an acronym for “sexual orientation and gender identity”. While only announced this year, this curriculum has been years in the making. It started out as an anti-bullying campaign, but it teaches an unhealthy view of sexuality and gender. I want to explain and comment on the new curriculum, but before I do that I need to state four premises: Four Premises Education is not neutral. As the Ontario...
