Scotland's New 'Section 28' Culture War Breaks out over Mandatory Teaching of LGBTI Issues in School
The moderator of the Free Church of Scotland has been denounced as homophobic for claiming LGBT campaigners are trying to “indoctrinate children” by teaching them about gay relationships in schools in order to end discrimination. Reverend David Robertson said children should not be introduced to ideas about gay or transgender relationships by their class teachers. Campaign group Time for Inclusive Education (TIE) is calling for mandatory education of LGBT issues to be brought in to schools as young people are self-harming and taking their own lives as a result of homophobia and transphobia.
