St. Joseph Catholic Secondary School in Ontario, Canada is so adamant about pushing gay issues under the rug that it has  banned rainbows. Administrators at a Catholic high school in Canada told students they couldn’t use rainbows for an antihomophobia event.

The school  banned the display of any rainbows during what was called an “anti-homophobia event.” Some clever students secretly baked rainbow cupcakes and sold them as a fundraiser. Since rainbows couldn’t be displayed openly and proudly, the students baked rainbows into the cupcakes by dying the batter in a rainbow of colours.
