"........ secondary school in North Dublin held an LGBT week and pupils were forced to wear LGBT badges, write essays in favour of LGBT rights and do artwork in a similar vein. There was hardly a peep out of our media.
A 16-year-old girl who refused to wear one of the badges was told by her teacher that she was being "disrespectful" to LGBT people. (Would it be "disrespectful" to Catholics to refuse to wear a crucifix? Obviously not).
This girl was told by her teacher that she deserved detention.
Another girl (aged 14) was asked to do an art project on an LGBT theme. When she objected, the teacher said she would have to leave her convictions outside the classroom. The irony was lost on the teacher that she was the one forcing her convictions on the whole class regardless of parental wishes."
