Eustathios (Steve) Tourloukis, a Smithville, Ont., dentist, has two daughters at Gordon Price elementary school in Hamilton, and in September 2012 he announced he was launching a legal action against the Hamilton-Wentworth District School Board, seeking a court order that he be given advance notice of any material that would be covered in class that might conflict with his family’s religious beliefs on matters of family or sexuality.

His application says Tourloukis made several requests to the school and board for an accommodation for his religious beliefs, but was refused. He is asking the court to find the refusal a violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Ontario Human Rights Code and Education Act. His affidavit states that “as a committed Christian and member of St. Demetrios Greek Orthodox Church, I am committed to providing a biblically-based education and upbringing for my children.” He includes as an example his disagreement with lessons that promote same-sex “marriage” noting that the Bible states marriage is between a man and woman and that sex between homosexual partners is sinful.

Hamilton-Wentworth board director John Malloy told the Hamilton Spectator in 2012 that the board has a religious accommodation policy for sex education but that it does not apply to the equity policies of the board. Since 2011 in Ontario, schools have promoted gay rights under the guise of anti-bullying programs under the province’s educational equity policies. “We provide accommodation as long as it does not cause harm to others,” Malloy said.

All students are forced to attend mandatory “anti-bullying” indoctrination sessions

Don’t be fooled! These are not about “bullying” at all – they’re all about forbidding kids to voice any objections to LGBT behavior, and in forcing them to agree that LGBT behavior is perfectly normal and acceptable. Bullying of normal kids, particularly those who are white, is never an issue that concerns school authorities.
