A Christian mom complained to her son’s school for teaching him about LGBTI Pride month.
Heavers Farm Primary in South-East London held a special event in June this year celebrating Pride month.
Teachers invited parents to join their kids at school to celebrate ‘the rainbow things that make them and their families special’.
But Christian mom Izzy Montague refused and asked teachers to remove her son from the event because it conflicted with her Christian beliefs.
But the school refused, according to Montague.
The Christian mom ended up keeping her son at home on the day of the event. Montague then asked for a meeting with the school’s principal over the ordeal.
‘Why be homophobic… when you can just be quiet?’
The meeting took place in September, but not everything went according to plan.
When Montague arrived at the school, she noticed a teacher wearing a t-shirt with a slogan about homophobia.
The t-shirt slogan read: ‘Why be racist, sexist, homophobic, or transphobic when you could just be quiet?’
The member of staff is the school’s deputy safeguarding manager.
Montague told the Daily Mail yesterday: ‘Given the nature of my complaints it was obviously a deliberate act to wear the T-shirt.
‘I believe it was intended to belittle my views and intimidate me into silence,’ she added.
But the school denies the teacher wore the shirt deliberately.
They say it was entirely coincidental and the teacher meant no offense.
Montague then wrote a letter complaining about the shirt. She said in the letter: ‘It was highly unprofessional and surely does not adhere to the school policy dress code for staff.’
The Christian mom has since taken her son out of the school and enrolled him into a Catholic school.
