Gay student files human rights suit against Catholic school

A homosexual student has filed a human rights complaint against his former French Catholic high school for what he calls a pattern of “homophobia” he says he experienced while being a student there, reports LifeSiteNews.

Christopher Karas, a graduate of École Secondaire Catholique Ste-Famille and current student at Humber College, said his $25,000 suit filed at the Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario at the end of January is not about trying to change sexual morality in Catholic schools.

“I’m not changing anything. The whole [Catholic] faith is based around acceptance. It’s based around respect and love. And to teach hate and to tell people that they should hate people because of who they love, that is not OK, that is not acceptable, and I won’t allow it,” he told Jim Richards on News Talk 1010 recently.

In addition to seeking $25,000 in compensation, Karas is asking for a written apology and seven “public interest remedies,” including amendment of the curriculum, sensitivity training for all teachers and students, and installment of gender-neutral bathrooms, reports the Star.

The Tribunal has yet to decide on the merits of the case.

Karas claims he faced discrimination while on a Grade 10 school field trip to Ottawa, the Star reports based on a copy of Karas’ complaint. According to Karas, one male student did not want to share a hotel room with him. The student complained to the teacher, who shuffled students around to accommodate the complaint.

Karas said the event made him feel embarrassed.
