Religious groups protest gay-straight alliance law

Last month, Ontario passed a law requiring schools to allow students to form gay-straight alliances, surely a plan to prevent anti-gay bullying. Catholic and other religious communities have respected the decision and owned up to the fact that many of their institutions facilitate a hateful climate for LGBTQ folks.

No, just kidding. They're upset.

Despite the fact that Catholic schools are able to shut down any club that they feel "tarnishes their religious character", Parents as First Educators are apparently still taking issue with the law, insisting that Ontario Catholic Trustees implement 'respecting difference' groups as an alternative.
