Trinity Western grad ‘attacked’ for being Christian in job rejection


A Trinity Western University graduate says she was “attacked” over her religion by a Norwegian wilderness tourism company, just for applying for a job.

Bethany Paquette claims her application to work in Canada’s North for Amaruk Wilderness Corp. was rejected because she’s Christian.

“It did really hurt me and I did feel really attacked on the basis that I’m a Christian,” Paquette said.

In her complaint to the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal, Paquette outlines a series of emails from executives from Amaruk Wilderness Corp.

Paquette, an experienced river rafting guide, applied to be a wilderness guide for Amaruk’s Canadian operations in the North.

She says she was shocked when she read the rejection email from Olaf Amundsen, the company’s hiring manager.

He wrote that she wasn’t qualified and “unlike Trinity Western University, we embrace diversity, and the right of people to sleep with or marry whoever they want.”

Trinity Western is the Christian university in Langley, B.C., where Paquette earned her biology degree.

All students must agree to a covenant prohibiting sexual intimacy outside heterosexual marriage, under pain of possible expulsion, which has led to controversy over the university’s new law school.


In the rejection email, Amundsen also wrote: “The Norse background of most of the guys at the management level means that we are not a Christian organization, and most of us actually  see Christianity as having destroyed our culture, tradition and way of life.”

Paquette wrote Amundsen back defending her faith, saying “your disagreement with Trinity Western University, simply because they do not support sex outside of marriage, can in fact be noted as discrimination of approximately 76 per cent of the world population!!! Wow, that’s a lot of diverse people that you don’t embrace.”

She also wrote that the Norse people chose Christianity.

“I signed it God Bless, probably partially because I knew it would irritate them,” Paquette said.

It clearly irritated Amundsen, who wrote back, describing himself as “a Viking with a PhD in Norse culture. So propaganda is lost on me.”

He explained why graduates from Trinity Western are not welcome in the Norwegian company.

“In asking students to refrain from same-sex relationships, Trinity Western University, and any person associated with it, has engaged in discrimination.”

He ended the email writing, “‘God bless’ is very offensive to me and yet another sign of your attempts to impose your religious views on me.

“I do not want to be blessed by some guy… who has been the very reason for the most horrendous abuses and human rights violations in the history of the human race.”

Amundsen then used an expletive to state that if he met God, he would have sex with him.

Stupid hipster neopagan asshole.

Does he think his pagan Norse ancestors would have been as ‘progressive’ as him as regards queers?

So, grads from T-W are not welcome, but she was not hired purely because she ‘wasn’t qualified’.

Yeah, right! {/sarcasm}

Bigoted leftist twit.

  1. If these kinds of things were happening in Russia or Syria; the media would be screaming about ‘political purges’. But when it’s a PC purge, not a peep out of them.

  2. These stupid libtards have no idea how ignorant and intolerant they are. I hope that when he meets his maker, God strikes his genitals with a lightning bolt. Odin didn’t like homosexuals, and Jehovah let the sodomites know what he thought of their perversion. No self-respecting god has ever been a faggot. God is a celibate heterosexual.

  3. Trigger warning: the following article may cause extreme nausea:

    I’ve been noticing a very disturbing trend, especially popping up a lot at the Huffington Post. There seems to be a new angle to prog arrogance; we’re accustomed to thinking of them as militant atheists, but I’ve been noticing more and more that they’re taking on an air of ‘superior spirituality’. I don’t mean merely the limp-wristed Churchian type, either. It almost seems like the masks are really coming off and the progs are admitting that THEY are the new secular gods.

      • Will:
        The progs are sounding (and behaving) more and more like those psychopaths who ruled France during the Reign of Terror. I have no trouble envisioning a kook like the author of that article praying to the ‘Rainbow Christ’ one moment and offering human sacrifices to it via the guillotine the next. Did you notice that rather ominous reference to the rainbow that appeared after the Great Flood?
