Being gay is a ‘choice’ says Christian mother who is suing a London school

Recent comments

Central London County Court is expected to rule soon on a case brought against Heavers Farm Primary School in Croydon. Izzy Montague, above, alleges that her son, aged four, was “forced” into taking part in an LGBT+ event in 2018 and claims that being gay is a “choice.”

The bigot’s case, which began on February 1, is being supported by Christian Concern, a dodgy hate group established to support “persecuted Christians.”

Montague, according to Christian Concern, launched legal action against the school on the grounds of direct and indirect discrimination, victimisation and breach of statutory duty under the Education Act 1996 and the Human Rights Act 1998.

Christian Concern says the case is the first time that a UK court will scrutinise the legality of “imposing LGBT ideology on primary schools”.

Under the spell of the Stonewall charity

Christian Concern lays part of the blame for the event with the school’s executive headteacher, Susan Papas, saying she was as a trained Stonewall “champion” who was given a brief by the school to focus on the theme of “no hierarchy of equalities” during “so-called” Pride month (June).

When Montague went to the school to complain to Papas about the Pride event, the head teacher’s daughter, who works at the school, was wearing a T-shirt with the slogan “Why be racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic when you could just be quiet.”

Montague understood that this was a provocative move to demonstrate that her concerns were homophobic.

Christian Concern said:

The influence and approach of Stonewall was apparent in the school’s partisan Pride month activities in June 2018, which saw free speech silenced, religious beliefs ignored, and parental rights infringed.

Stonewall posters were emblazoned across the school, children were shown Stonewall videos during lessons, and children as young as four were read stories promoted by the organisation aimed at normalising same-sex relationships.

LGBT pride flags were spread across the school and children were encouraged to wear rainbow colours and children as young as four were shown videos of two men kissing.

In her complaint, Montague said the school had breached the Equality Act 2010. In particular, she asserted that the parade was

Unlawful discrimination against children who follow their Christian or any other mainstream religion.


Andrea Minichello Williams, above, Chief Executive and founder of the Christian Legal Centre presents herself as a barrister at anti-LGBT+ meetings and rallies but is not on The Bar Standards Board Register.

She said of the lawsuit: 

This case epitomises the chaos we can expect to see in the coming years in our schools and is another example of the ‘totalitolerance’ that has become so prevalent in our society. Those who preach tolerance and diversity the loudest do not appear to be interested in practising it.

The treatment of parents at Heavers Farm Primary School represents some of the most chilling breaches of parental rights I have ever seen in my many years of working on educational issues.

Education is always a partnership between the school and parents, but the school’s actions showed disrespect, dismissiveness and hostility towards these parents. A particular agenda is being forced onto children inside the school gates and parents are being given no means to ensure that their children are being taught in line with their religious and philosophical beliefs.

  1. Being gay isn’t a choice. Being a bigot like Old Leather Face is.

    1. I am in the mood for setting up counter-organisations, such as Christian Unconcern, aka ‘We Will Make Your Worthless Lives Even More Miserable’ which will persecute the bigots of Christian Concern.

  2. I notice that Ms Montague is black. I don’t need to elaborate, do I, as the point has been made many times before where blatant bigotry and discrimination are concerned. Christians don’t do irony, otherwise they would see it too!
