As Christianity is deliberately marginalised from national life, the powers that be have created a whole host of celebrations to fill the void left by the absence of the acknowledgement of God. These centre around equality, diversity and inclusion. Instead of Christmas, Easter, Whitsun, Michaelmas and numerous other saints’ days, we now have multiple opportunities to celebrate groups with protected characteristics as defined by the Equality Act 2010.
Therefore, October is Black History month, February is LGBT History month, March is Women’s History month, April 22 is Earth Day and June is LGBT Pride month. This is topped off with School Diversity Week in the first week of July, which is timed to coincide with Gay Pride weekend. School Diversity Week promotes not just LGBT issues, but also multiculturalism, mass immigration and fourth-wave feminism – the kind of feminism which is about destroying the patriarchy rather than equal opportunities. It is so diverse and inclusive that the only thing you are not allowed to celebrate is anything traditional Christian or conservative, as that would be bigoted and xenophobic – the sins of the new liberal order.
You may just about be able to ignore these celebrations if you live on a farm in Breconshire with no television, but anyone who attends a school will have these events forced upon them. Schools and teachers have been wearing rainbow ribbons and some have held ‘Dress To Express’ days on the eve of Pride Day to ensure that children have a positive attitude to all things LGBT. Pupils as young as four have been encouraged to attend Gay Pride events where they can observe many things which children should never see.
To aid and abet the proceedings, the BBC has created an online learning series called Ask Lara, and it encourages schoolchildren aged nine to 13 to watch an episode where the concept of being gay is introduced.
To mark #SchoolDiversityWeek 🌈in your class next week, take a look at our Ask Lara series which deals with many issues faced by 9-13s, including sexuality

It is unlikely that parents will have heard of this series or would know if it were to be shown in lessons, but it is highly likely that many children will have been shown this clip or something similar to mark Schools Diversity Week.
Parents currently have the right to withdraw children from lessons with content such as this, but this right is going to disappear soon if Theresa May’s fake-Conservative government is still in place in September 2019, or replaced by any major party apart from UKIP, which still supports parents as primary educators and rejects gender confusion and the early sexualisation of children in schools.
In the last meeting of the Education Select Committee, Damian Hinds confirmed he would be introducing LGBT-inclusive Relationships and Sex Education in schools from September 2019. He went further and announced that he would use his powers as Secretary of State for Education to make PSHE (Personal, Social and Health Education) mandatory in all schools from September 2020. This means that it will be compulsory for children to view material promoting LGBT issues even if parents don’t want their children to hear about it at such a young age.
Theresa May’s government is utterly out of touch with parents on this issue. It seems hell-bent on pushing the demands of the powerful LGBT lobby on primary schools and forcing through the early sexualisation of children under the guise of preventing homophobic and transphobic bullying.
This is despite mass opposition and growing resistance. In south London last week, a group of parents protested at a Pride Day for pupils as young as five at the end of School Diversity Week. The school was forced to axe the event, but not after slurring them as a ‘minority who are spreading hateful messages’.
But parents know what is best for their children, not ministers and LGBT lobbyists, most of whom do not have children of their own. Parents, in their wisdom, do not want children exposed to ideas which they are too young to cope with. The result of plying children with too much information at too young an age is reflected in the number of children under ten presenting with gender dysphoria, which has quadrupled in five years.
School Diversity Week is over for this year, but the next academic year is going to be a battle in the lead-up to the removal of parents’ veto over Relationships and Sex Education. Parents often feel isolated, but it is possible to win. Similar plans in Peru in 2017 were overturned by parents in the mass movement ‘Con Mis Hijos No Te Metas’ meaning ‘Don’t Mess With My Kids’. The government there was forced to back down from its plans to introduce an LGBT school curriculum.
The battle in the United Kingdom will not be easy. Parents, Christians and social conservatives will be relentlessly attacked by those who want to interfere with children’s natural development and deconstruct traditional family life, not to mention British traditions and Christianity. Yet if true conservatives stand up to Theresa May’s fake-Conservative government and the new religion of ‘equality, diversity and inclusion’, we can win here too.
