CFI-Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. In Ottawa, CFI has walked in the Capital Pride parade since 2009. Our message, “Stop faith-based bigotry,” is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated.
CFI Ottawa marched on August 21 in the Ottawa Pride March. Despite the rain we were there to support the GLBT community against Faith Based Bigotry. We had 600 “Stop Faith Based Bigotry” stickers and we handed out every single one.
Our message against the few preaching hate on the sidelines, was very much appreciated by marchers and bystanders. This writer was personally thanked by many from the sidelines for all we do and those words of support were reward enough.
