  1. Good to see they’re finally teaching kids about this stuff. I wonder if homophobia has been added to school’s anti-bullying policies like racism, sexism etc.

    I’m only 22 but homophobia was rampant in my school and the teachers done nothing. It’s disgusting that it’s taken until 2013 for the government and schools to act on this properly but I’m glad to see progress is being made, as painstakingly slow as it is.

    Let’s not forget the mp’s want our votes, we’re the hot topic of the time, and their stance on ‘equality’ is subject to change behind closed doors and off camera…

      22 Mr.Pink

      You are far more ahead of me when I was your age so have confidence young man. Great reply and I support it.

      I fight with my sisters one a catholic school head and another a primary school teacher. They both have gay children but cannot escape the church. As they started in catholic schools no other school will touch them.. Sad but true.

    And CoE schools are doing absolutely nothing about it either. Welby, Sentamu and others preach platitudes about the harm the church has inflicted on gay people throughout the ages, yet they’ve done nothing to tackle the issue in their schools either, nor have they made any concerted effort to confront the homophobia in their ranks let alone elicit an official apology for perpetuating persecution of gay people since Henry VIII.

    There’s also a correlation to their homophobia and the exemptions they’re demanding for registrars in regard to CPs and the Marriage Bill. Never trust the swivel eyed religious loons in and outside the church. They’re a bunch of bigots and hypocrites, lets face it.

    I attended two Catholic schools where bullying of any kind was completely prohibited, whereas my cousins went to secular state schools where the teachers turned a blind eye towards intimidation and assault. Not all faith schools are bad. At least north of the border, anyway. PS, not all Christians are anti-gay; my best friend, a devout Catholic, is a big supporter.
