When it comes to (man-made) rainbows, students are told to stick it where the sun don’t shine.

An Ontario Catholic high school is so adamant about pushing gay issues under the rug that it’s banned rainbows. According to Xtra!, a Canadian gay and lesbian news site, the multicolored motif is off-limits because of its association with LGBT rights and Pride.

“There’s so many other things that a rainbow could be. It’s ridiculous,” says Leanne Iskander, the 16-year-old founder of St. Joseph Catholic Secondary School‘s unofficial gay-straight alliance group. (Official LGBT groups are prohibited at the school.)

    Amusing, as Squirt.org that is part of Xtra that is part of Pink Triangle Press routinely censors comments, good or bad, if it pertains to a business and the business owner(s) do not like what they are reading online. They pander to the advertiser of that business $$ instead of letting the truth be known and letting people choose for themselves.
