This is nothing like a dame

Dear Marriage supporter

Dame Louise Casey has labelled church schools supportive of genuine marriage as ‘homophobic’. She even likened them to the Islamitic extremism exposed by the Trojan Horse scandal in Birmingham.

The Government’s integration commissar told a House of Commons select committee that the issues raised by Trojan Horse were “not okay”.

She then added, “the same way it is not okay for Catholic schools to be homophobic and anti-gay marriage”.

Casey then went on to accuse those opponents of homosexual ‘marriage’ of using ‘religious conservatism as a veil for anti-equality views’.

This is one of the clearest indications so far of how the extremism agenda could be hijacked to marginalise those who take a stand for real marriage.

Her astonishing remarks come hot on the heels of her recommendation that everyone who holds public office should take an ‘equality oath’.

They also fly in the face of official guidance that teachers and schools do not need to support or endorse same-sex ‘marriage’.

It’s essential that we speak out when unelected advisers go beyond the law.

Believing that marriage is between one man and one woman doesn’t make you ‘homophobic’ or an extremist. It’s Dame Louise Casey’s comments which are extreme!

Yours sincerely
