Focus on the Family banned pending investigation from Australian Capital Territory schools

Focus on the Family has been banned from Australian Capital Territory (ACT) schools while its practices are investigated.

Focus on the Family has been accused [by a parent at a Canberra high school] of vilifying homosexuality, and preaching religion to students without parental consent.

The group runs a values-based program in that school and five others. It covers issues including marriag, abstinence and “the dangers of pornography.”

Odds that their team didn’t make clear their views on homosexuality seem vanishingly small from here. We’ll see.
