Many different people have tried to make a GSA at Alemany High School in Mission Hills, CA multiple times and all have subsequently failed. Just recently a proposed Alemany GSA has been taken all the way to the Archdiocese of Los Angeles where it was again turned down, we need help. The goal of the Alemany GSA would be to create a place for students to safely discuss and express themselves without fear of ridicule. As you’ve probably already noticed Alemany is a Catholic School and uses Catholic doctrine as an excuse for the fears of a select few, but that doesn’t mean they should be allowed to push bigotry on their students, and that also doesn’t mean that Catholicism should be used to shuttle a homophobic agenda. Alemany has already tried to silence its LGBT+ community multiple times as well as causing an openly gay faculty member to leave, as for years he was showed that he is not welcome. This petition would also like to cite the multiple homophobic clauses in the parent student handbook that many parents skim over and sign in order to admit their students into Catholic education. (*A link to the handbook and citations of specific pages are included at the end of this petition) These clauses need to be removed. We need to bring to justice obstinate organizations that try to use religion to push their political agendas, agendas that are rooted solely in fear. Thank You, any support helps.

-Pg 57: (“Homosexual persons are called to chastity. By the virtues of self-mastery that teach them inner freedom, at times by the support of disinterested friendship, by prayer and sacramental grace, they can and should gradually and resolutely approach Christian perfection” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2359).)
-Pg 61: (All dances are male-female date dances and for Bishop Alemany High School students only, unless otherwise announced.)
-Pg 67: (Bishop Alemany High School supports healthy boy-girl relationships in so far as they yield emotional, psychological and social growth in all students.)

Now that the Christopher Columbus statue has been removed near the St. Paul capital in Minnesota. We should place a Prince statue there. Perhaps a sculpture of Prince playing the Super Bowl circa 2007, with that beautiful guitar of his. Rocking out into the Minnesota sky near our capital. How beautiful would that be?Read more
My name is Biju Mathews and I would like to request your help and guidance on behalf of Malayalees with regards to facilitating a direct flight from Toronto to Cochin.
At present, there are no direct flights from Toronto to Cochin while there are several airlines that operate from Toronto to other cities like New Delhi, Bangalore, and so on. If a Toronto-Cochin flight can be made possible, it will be very convenient and useful for visitors to Kerala - those visiting loved ones as well as tourists - saving both time and money.
Facilitating a flight from Toronto to Cochin is indeed possible as Cochin International Airport handles Boeing 777 airliners as well. Moreover, this flight route will also be a profitable move since there are approximately 400-450 Family passengers weekly who travel to Kochi using different flights information obtained from 4 different travel agents. This number is only likely to increase, given the surge of the Malayalee population. There are currently about 500,000 Malayalees including students, who reside in Toronto Canada.
If you could help make this flight possible, it will not only be a dream come true for travelers to Cochin, but it will also be a highly profitable venture given the number of daily passengers to Kochi.
Please provide us with the necessary information and guidance and thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.
Looking forward to hearing from you.

On April 1st, a family of beavers in Nevers Park was trapped and killed, on orders from town officials. An assessment of the pond by a nationally known beaver expert showed that a simple water flow system and some tree wrapping could solve any problems and allow for co-existence with the next beavers, for less than two thousand dollars. The expert also said young beavers will certainly find the pond, perhaps any day now, when they are most active. We need to stop all trapping NOW and work toward coexistence with the next beavers, and to let the citizens of South Windsor and visitors enjoy these fascinating creatures as they go about their work creating a tremendous ecosystem that harms no one.Read more

a gay-straight alliance in our school, which is a support group for LGBTQ students. However, our school blocked us from forming such a group.
After having been blocked from forming a gay-straight will never allow gay-straight alliances. While students at a few Catholic schools have been able to their groups “gay-straight alliances,” or anything with the word “gay.”
I am gay. Many of the students gay-straight alliances and groups like them, and that students can name the groups what they wishRead more
