Support the teaching of traditional family values in Catholic Schools by signing this petition!
Urge them unequivocally to support Archbishop John Wilson in his prohibition against the use of such materials at St John Fisher School, Croydon.
Call for all such books to be banned from Catholic schools as inappropriate.
In early March, a planned visit by a writer of LGBTQ+ teen fiction to a Catholic school in south London was cancelled after Southwark Archdiocese intervened.
Simon James Green was due to take part in a discussion at St. John Fisher School, a Catholic boys’ secondary school in Croydon. His controversial book, Noah can’t even – with its blasphemous gay parody of the Lord’s Prayer, and sexually explicit behaviour involving LGBTQ characters – is a direct insult to Christian belief.
Southwark Archdiocese, which oversees the school, said in a statement from education director Simon Hughes that “from time to time materials and events emerge for consideration that fall outside the scope of what is permissible in a Catholic school … In such circumstances, we have no alternative but to affirm our unequivocal and well-known theological and moral precepts and to act in accordance with them.”
Hughes’ directive to the school noted that the controversial author’s visit was “outside the scope of what is permissible in a Catholic school” and not “compliant with the Equalities Act 2010 and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.”
Archbishop of Southwark, John Wilson, fired governors at the school after they defied the diocesan directive telling the school to cancel the book-signing event by Simon James Green.
Now, Archbishop Wilson and the Diocese of Southwark are facing a barrage of anti-Catholic hatred from secular bodies and teaching unions calling upon the government to withdraw state funding from Catholic schools.
Show your support …

“Ban books promoting the LGBTQ agenda in Catholic schools”
