"We stand together, as a Canadian people as a Muslim and a Christian, to protect our children," one man said in a video posted on Twitter by Rebel News. "From that," added another man as he pointed to a group of LGBTQ activists across the street.
"We came to this country because we have freedom of choice," a Muslim man said. "We can practice our religion, deserve the right to protect us, we can be whatever we want to be, you can do whatever you want to do, but just leave our kids alone."
"The other side can believe what they want they can decide whatever they want," he continued. "In their own bedroom, in their own home, but please don't implement it in our kid's education system. Don't promote it in our schools in our life."
"Even now if you want to let your son watch a Disney movie, you have to monitor it, watch it three times before. There are so many hidden agenda there, that we can not understand," he concluded.
At one point, the situation got tense as the parents crossed the street to chant, "Leave our kids alone!" within feet of the counter-protestors. Parents held signs with phrases such as "Let kids be kids," "Stop the insanity, quit terrorism, confusion bullying children," and one child was seen donning a sign reading, "Protect Innocense, Demand Change."
The Queer activist side of the protest was smaller than expected as the left-wing organizations ostensibly didn't want to be seen as racist against Muslims. Queer Citizens United put out a statement that they "are not sufficiently informed by Muslim leaders in the community."
"As a result of our conversations with a member of Unity Mosque about the protest at City Hall today, we believe that any counter-protest to the action at city hall will likely be used as ammunition for this hate group to paint queer folks as racist," the group said in a Twitter post.
People of the Muslim faith began to stand against LGBTQ activism in recent weeks. Last week, an all-Muslim city council in Hamtramck, Michigan, voted to ban all Pride flags from being flown on public property. Parents in Montgomery County, Maryland, protested to be allowed to opt their children out of LGBTQ teachings in school.
In October, Muslim parents in Dearborn, Michigan, fought to keep "This Book is Gay," out of their school libraries.
