Another Absurd Attack On Traditional Families Furthers The Liberal Agenda

With liberal attacks on everything traditional families stand for, parents should have seen this coming.

A new trend is emerging this year throughout school districts in the U.S. and Canada.

In an effort to celebrate “inclusivity”, several schools are now doing away with the time-honored tradition of students making Mother’s and Father’s Day cards and crafts for their parents.

A note was sent home recently to parents in a British Columbia school, and now other schools are jumping on the bandwagon of destroying a family tradition which dates back a century.

KXTV in Canada released a copy of the letter from a primary day school:

As Mother’s Day and Father’s Day approach we have met as a Primary (Grade 1 and 2) team to discuss our core values. In an effort to celebrate diversity, inclusivity and also nurture our students who are part of non-traditional families, we have decided to encourage those celebrations to take place at home. Due to this, the children will not be making gifts at school to give on Mother’s Day and Father’s Day. We feel each family knows the best way to celebrate with their own family.

And most parents did not react well to the news:

I think disappointed is an understatement. This will be the first year that we don’t get gifts crafted with love from our kids, and since we only have one little one now it makes it all that much worse. I don’t understand why we, as Canadians, need to give up our traditions that have been passed through generations. I welcome all races and ethnicities, but forcing us to give up things that are important to us as Canadians is crap. And it doesn’t even have anything to do with religion? You can’t celebrate your Mom and Dad?

The schools seem to think that by allowing their students to make a Mother’s or Father’s Day card, that they are going to offend non-traditional families, or those with alternative parenting structures, such as homosexual couples.

And, of course, the liberal media is celebrating the idea, going so far as stating that if a child has a transgendered or “transitioning” parent, then that parent would not be called a mother or father, but “parent”.

So what is the liberals’ alternative for destroying these holidays that bring so much joy to parents?

They have made a new “non-offensive” holiday — “Parents’ Day” to be celebrated in July.

Popsugar reports on one school’s decision to placate non-traditional families:

“We have traditionally shown our appreciation for all of our wonderful parents by setting up a card making station for the children in each room so they can make cards for Mother’s Day and Father’s Day (if they like). But times, they are a-changing! We have single parent families, dual mom families, families that are just about every shape and size — and rather than inadvertently point out differences in families during Mother’s Day and Father’s Day, we are going to offer the children card making stations to celebrate Parent’s Day, in July.”

One parent commented on this absurd idea:

And it’s not about Parents’ Day. No one even knows when Parents’ Day is, and it certainly doesn’t hold the same significance for moms and dads as Mother’s and Father’s Days do. It’s also not even completely inclusive as it’s still called Parents’ Day, plural.

It’s the principle that we’re slowly chipping away at longstanding traditions and celebrations in order to avoid pointing out differences. Differences exist. We’re never going to do away with differences. And why should we want to? We should celebrate them and discuss them. We should expose our children to them. We should arm our children with tools to handle them. We should fight to keep them as part of the narrative so they become less different and more ordinary.

Biblical history, as well as centuries of culture in the U.S. and elsewhere, show the tremendous importance mothers and fathers have in the lives of their children.

This new step by liberals to embrace “diversity” does nothing but destroy more of the traditional foundations of the family.

Not only are they introducing a new “holiday” to include non-traditional families, but they are calling for an end of the traditional Mother’s and Father’s Day holidays altogether — showing that their idea of being “inclusive” is simply getting rid of any long-standing traditions that don’t fit their agenda.

    This is nothing but propaganda and is ridiculous! Leave our children alone!

  2. sutherncon says:

    That’s okay. Older family members can help them make cards. This can help on two fronts, especially if Mom and/or Dad is the helper. An added benefit is having to buy all those Christmas and end-of-the-year gifts for the [email protected]

    Get real. The school is put in a bad position. Who is the mother in a two men partnership.

    • William Collins says:

      Just figure out which one thinks and wishes she was a man, but never will measure up to being one.

    • Doug Ribot says:

      The mother gave birth and the father gave seed and should be married to the mother and caring for her and the child or children as they grow normally and healthily.

    Stupid is as stupid does. Schools are in a bad position because of the positions they take.

  5. Richard Schwartz says:

    Here is something liberals seem to forget. The more public schools move away from our values the more charter school will emerge!! Quality education and moral values.

  6. Liberals are morons. You eliminate the justifications of using the Arts and Crafts, then there’s no reason to fund the Arts at any level anymore. And what ever would the Liberals ever do without their precious National Endowment for the Arts?

  7. Centurian says:

    While I don’t agree with their position, there are a couple things to consider here:

    1) Mother’s Day and Father’s day were created by the greeting card industry in order to sell cards. This new one is just another artificial recognition or holiday to fit another agenda.

    2) What the hell are kids doing at school in creating cards and gifts when they should be learning language, history, math science and arts? (Sorry, they don’t teach much of that anymore). When my wife was a teacher, she had 4th graders reading novels and science students making and launching rockets, with the students measuring the angle of elevation and using trigonometry to to determine maximum altitude of each launch. Not too bad for 4th -6th graders.

    3) They should be learning tolerance and acceptance rather than exclusions in the name of so called “diversity” or “inclusivity.”

    4) We are well on the road to raising an entire generation of submissive snowflakes who will bend to every regulatory abuse. Canada is not alone. This is happening in the US, Australia and New Zealand. It is mostly accomplished in Europe.

    God help us and the generations to come. Eventually, somebody will read or see the right stuff and major dust-up will occur. I don’t know if I will live to see it, but I hope so, because I would be honored to participate.

    • They aren’t learning language, history ( especially when the left wants to destroy it), math and science. You can bet they teach global warming too. It’s a shame the communists have taken over the school systems.

  8. Turkey basters should be used for just that. One man, one woman, end of story. One way or another. He can sort us out. What a joke is being made out of creation. He won’t laugh for to Long before it gets fixed. Repent and get saved or not…I guess.

  9. HOME SCHOOL !

  10. This is just too ridiculous for words!!!
    The liberals again at work!

    They took Halloween out of school and I heard silence.

  12. The reason why the left hates or wants to ignore Mother and Father’s Days are because they dont want to offend their tiny minority brethren and sisren of the homosexual persuation by reminding them that they are “different”. More liberal hypocrisy! They want to celebrate only the diversity that is of the gay kind! Forget the mainstream. normal or generally accepted! That is not diverse! That is oppressive! They cant be celebrating that! They make me want to hurl!
    Liberal = Hypocrite!
