CONTRE L’HOMOPHOBIE RELIGIEUSE

CFI Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. This year, CFI Montreal marched in the Montréal Pride/Fierté Montréal parade. Our message, “CONTRE L’HOMOPHOBIE RELIGIEUSE” (STOP FAITH-BASED BIGOTRY), is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated.

CFI Saskatoon at Pride Festival

CFI Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. CFI Saskatoon has walked in the Saskatoon Pride Parade since 2012. Join us next year to show your support! In 2012, we also sponsored a Saskatoon Pride Festival event with Nate Phelps, the estranged son of “God Hates Fags” Westboro Baptist Church leader Fred Phelps.

Our motto, “Stop faith-based bigotry,” was created by CFI Ottawa and is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated. An example is the recent battles to get publicly funded Catholic schools to allow GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) clubs.

Montreal Pride 2013

CFI-Canada has been a long-time supporter of LGBT rights, and a participant in pride parades across the nation. In Montreal, CFI has walked in Fierté Montréal parade since 2010.

Our motto, “Stop faith-based bigotry,” is a reminder that most of the barriers held up against LGBT equality are religiously motivated, as highlighted by the recent battle to get publicly funded Catholic schools to allow GSA (Gay-Straight Alliance) clubs.

This year, we are partnering up with Concordia Freethought and Humanist Student Association to show CFI’s support for the LGBT community. We invite CFI members to join us with your friends and family to celebrate and defend equality!
