Keep The Clause is an umbrella organisation which is made up of individuals, groups and organisations who are united in opposition to the proposed repeal of Clause 28.
We believe the Scottish Executive is out of step with the wishes of the Scottish people on this issue and have failed to consult parents and teachers regarding the desirability and consequences of repealing Clause 28.
The Keep The Clause campaign is not about intolerance towards homosexuals. We recognise the rights of adults to choose their own lifestyle and sexual practices, but Clause 28 draws a clear line in the sand between the rights of consenting adults and rights of parents to nurture their children with their own values.
Clause 28 does not prevent the objective discussion of homosexuality in the classroom or the counselling of pupils about their sexuality. Clause 28 prevents the intentional promotion of homosexuality and the teaching of the acceptability of homosexuality as a pretended family relationship.
A series of polls conducted on television and in newspapers demonstrate that almost two thirds of people do not want the promotion of homosexuality in schools.
To remove Clause 28 without replacing it with alternative protective legislation is irresponsible, leaving children without any statutory protection from homosexual campaigning.
The Scottish Executives consultation period ended on 14 January 2000 and the Executive has stated that it intends to introduce the Bill to the Scottish Parliament in early February. Without obstruction, the Bill will become law by June 2000.
