Canada Schools Forced to Admit Gay-Straight Groups

Ad Feedback

Lawmakers in Ontario, Canada, have passed a law that forces Catholic schools to violate their beliefs about homosexuality.

The new law says all schools, even religious ones, must allow in students form gay-straight alliances.

Catholic schools that receive government funding had objected. They argued they shouldn't be forced to accept student clubs that go against church teachings.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty disagreed, saying "discrimination" based on sexual orientation, "is no longer acceptable."

He added that he believes those "are values that transcend any one faith."

After it became law Tuesday, Cardinal Thomas Collins of Toronto issued a statement saying Catholics have "serious concerns" but will continue to "foster safe and welcoming" schools in accordance with their faith.
