Woman Sues UK School For Forcing Kid To Participate In LGBT Parade

Published on


Mrs Izzy Montague, a devout Christian mother, has filed a lawsuit against her son’s school, Heavers Farm Primary School in South Norwood, London, for forcing him to march in an LGBT pride parade.

The 28-year-old lady told the Central London County Court that her child was forced to participate in what was termed as the “most terrible of the deadly sins” by the school.

According to Metro, on June 19, 2018, the school sent a letter to parents inviting their pupils to participate in a Pride march.

Students were urged to “enjoy the differences that make them and their families unique.”

Montague, on the other hand, objected to the Pride event and stated that her four-year-old son would not be participating.

She contacted the school and stated that his participation in the LGBT celebration would be “a public display of devotion to values that she did not accept.”

However, her plea was denied by headteacher Susan Papas, prompting the woman to respond with a lengthy email.

Montague met with Ms Papas on September 19, during which the headteacher’s daughter donned a T-shirt that read, “Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just stay quiet?” according to the court.

According to Judge Christopher Lethem, the woman and her husband are “devout born-again Christians who believe that sexual intercourse should be refrained from or take place inside the constraints of a life-long marriage between a man and a woman and that any behaviour outside those confines is evil.”

“They also think that pride is the most dangerous of the deadly sins,” Lethem added.

It was the first time a UK court considered the legality of LGBT education in primary schools.

While the school has justified the march, calling it “a celebration of what makes the pupils proud,” the woman was not convinced.

“It seemed like it was lecturing me about British principles and how we weren’t conforming to British standards,” Montague explained.

Lethem has not rendered a decision in the case.
