Parents in the United Kingdom infuriated by mandatory LGBT lessons in public schools have launched an organization and a petition demanding the right to exempt their children from the indoctrination.
The Premier broadcast network in the U.K. reports the organization is called OCOFOR, Our Children Our Faith Our Rights. Members recently staged a demonstration at Parliament Square insisting the government allow them to opt children out of the LGBT lessons.
The online petition warns that society “in the process of liberating the LGBTQ community,” is snatching away “the rights of Christians who chose to live according to biblical views and other religious groups regarding homosexuality.”
The petition explains the organization “is fighting to protect the rights of people of faith to peacefully live out their beliefs according to the Holy Bible (a book that dates back more than 2000 years) in the U.K. without fear of persecution or prejudice especially as it relates to the LGBTQ agenda currently in full swing.”
“Religious freedom is fast becoming marginalized with those of the Christian faith being especially set apart for public mockery and shaming,” they warn.
