On Tuesday the Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) announced plans to partner with two leading homosexual advocacy groups to promote the homosexual agenda among current Olympic athletes, and Olympic hopefuls in Canadian schools.

The COC signed an agreement with You Can Play and Egale Canada in order to "foster LGBTQ inclusivity in national sport" by creating homosexuality-focused "resources" to be incorporated into the Canadian Olympic School Program (COSP), which will focus its efforts on students from grades six to eight.

The initiative will also create a new "OneTeam Athlete Ambassador" program, which will promote visits to schools across the country by homosexuality-endorsing athletes. The program's goal is to "establish formal relationships with 25 school boards nationally and connect with 1 million students by the end of 2016."

“What started as maybe a video, or a little help with LGBT issues, became something that’s never really been seen before or done before in sport in general, let alone in Olympic sports,” Patrick Burke, co-founder of You Can Play, told the Toronto Star.

“There is no other program like this. There is nothing like this when it comes to athletes taking on LGBT issues. You talk about the idea that we are going to train dozens of Olympic athletes to become experts on LGBT issues — even if they’re LGBT themselves, they still need training on how to express it — and then sending them into schools. There is nothing like that being done in the sports world. We’ve never had an organization put this type of commitment forward.”

COC chief executive officer Chris Overholt told CBC that the COC's initiative stems from its lack of reaction to the Russian law banning homosexual propaganda aimed at children as it played out in the Sochi Olympics.

"We chose not to take the action at that moment," Overholt said, "but we promised ourselves when the time was right, we would come back to it in an informed way. And certainly our partnership with You Can Play and with Egale, that is set to do important work in the future."

“Athletes should be judged by their performance on the field of play and their character as people, not for who they love,” Overholt added. “Today’s announcement is a positive step forward and we are so proud to begin the important work in changing the locker-room culture across Canada.”

A poll of Canadians by Forum Research conducted before the Olympics found that the majority (58%) disagreed that Canada should boycott Sochi because of the Russian law, while less than one third agreed with such an action (32%) and one tenth (10%) had no opinion.

A similar poll in the US found that the same percentage of Americans as Canadians disagreed with a boycott, and only 22 percent of Americans, compared to 32 percent of Canadians, thought their Olympic team should boycott the Sochi Winter Olympics.

The International Olympic Committee's (IOC) charter specifically prohibits demonstrations or political propaganda in any Olympic sites, venues or other areas, which thus bans demonstrations by homosexual activists at the Olympic Games.

"Any violation of the provisions of the present clause may result in disqualification or withdrawal of the accreditation of the person concerned. The decisions of the IOC Executive Board regarding this matter shall be final," the regulation states.

The COC stated that their homosexual initiative was not an attempt to put pressure on the IOC to endorse the homosexual mantra of equality and diversity. "This is about us, no one else," said Overholt.

When living as a transsexual woman I continually relied on the endless secular proclamations of diversity,inclusiveness and tolerance. Despite many people congratulating me and patting me on my back I found myself trapped in a tangled web of confusion, continually pining for acceptance with seemingly endless inescapable anxieties and guilt. I was to discover my problem was diversity inclusiveness and tolerance was not the absolute truth.
God's Holy Spirit of Truth was working deep within my soul,pointing out I was committing sin against God, not living in truth,and came to understand I was being taught convicted,and chastened by the Holy Spirit in order to bring me to the cross of Jesus Christ seeking forgiveness and redemption.
I came to realize my gay/trans activism was much more than fighting for equality and against the perceived bigotry and hatred of an intolerant society. I was in reality venting a spiritual battle within my own conscience and awakening soul.
Unfortunately my personal experience and witness of many others seems to be the norm and not the exception among so many gay/ trans identified people.The Canadian Olympic Committee has typically bowed to the pressures of activism and political correctness believing to have done the right thing however in reality are essentially endorsing mental illness, physical disease, death and sin. I and any many others learned this lesson the hard way.
