Recent legal measures within Canada provide students the right to affirm the moral permissibility of lesbian, gay, bi, trans, two-spirited, and queer (hereafter LGBTTQ) identities within any state funded school. Such rights extend even to students in independent religious schools that parents may have chosen precisely because they teach that LGBTTQ desires and practices are immoral. Many, both within Canada and throughout the world, oppose such legal measures as wrongly promoting a controversial moral worldview at the expense of legitimate parental authority. In this study, I consider whether theories of political morality that endeavor to be neutral in justification can justify such measures against moral and religious dissent. I argue that, due to a lack of a genuinely neutral basis from which to build a morally binding theory of justice, the neutralist approach fails, given the resources on offer in the literature.
