Pro-family group quits gay marriage fight
“Dave Quist, executive director of the Institute of Marriage and Family Canada, said Thursday he has become less concerned about same-sex marriage since census figures released earlier this month demonstrated how rare gay marriage is.
“The census, which counted same-sex marriages for the first time, reported 7,465 such unions, accounting for about 0.1 per cent of the 6.1 million married couples in Canada.”
Maybe he could focus his attention now on plans for a more “penetrating” school cirriculum:
“In the absence of queer content in BC’s compulsory high school curriculum, a queer arts organization wants to incorporate its established film-and-discussion program into mandatory Planning 10 coursework to fill what it sees as a significant gap.”
