TORONTO—As Pride Month kicked off on June 1, many Christians in Canada kept their children home from school to avoid events that don’t align with their faith.

A mother with a son in the York Catholic District School Board (YCDSB) in Aurora, Ont., pulled him out of school June 1 when she heard Pride Month was being celebrated in his high school, despite a much-publicized decision by the board not to fly the pride flag this month.

“You don’t need to raise some students by putting others down,” she told the Epoch Times. She preferred to give a pseudonym, Anna, to protect her son’s privacy. Anna is raising her son to have compassion for all people, she said, but to adhere to the Catholic faith’s view of marriage and sexuality—a view she sees as under attack even in the Catholic school system.
