Fricking Commie sympathizers

Still.

Three Liberal MPs want the planned site for a victims of communism monument changed, joining a growing list of opponents to the downtown Ottawa site.

At a press conference Thursday morning, Liberal heritage critic Stéphane Dion and two Ottawa MPs, Mauril Bélanger and David McGuinty, said while the Liberal caucus supports the monument, they don’t believe it should be built on a large vacant site just west of Parliament Hill on Wellington Street.

Oh, bullshit! They just don’t want to have to be reminded about it, as they leave the House of Commons building, if they park to the west.

Canadian Court Rules Christian Law School Can’t Be Denied Accreditation Over Biblical Beliefs

Canadian Court Rules Christian Law School Can’t Be Denied Accreditation Over Biblical Beliefs.

Good news!

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia – A Canadian court has ruled that an educational society in Nova Scotia acted improperly when it denied accreditation to a Christian law school because of its biblical beliefs on human sexuality.

“I have concluded that the NSBS did not have the authority to do what it did,” Justice Jamie Campbell of the Nova Scotia Supreme Court wrote on Wednesday. “I have also concluded that even if it did have that authority it did not exercise it in a way that reasonably considered the concerns for religious freedom and liberty of conscience.”

Trinity Western University, which is set to open its law school next year, had filed suit in October of last year after the Nova Scotia Barrister’s Society after it refused to recognize graduates as being attorneys until the Christian institution changed its policy on sexuality.

“According to the Bible, sexual intimacy is reserved for marriage between one man and one woman, and within that marriage bond it is God’s intention that it be enjoyed as a means for marital intimacy and procreation,” the university policy reads. “Honoring and upholding these principles, members of the TWU community strive for purity of thought and relationship, respectful modesty, personal responsibility for actions taken, and avoidance of contexts where temptation to compromise would be particularly strong.”

New York Magazine promoting ‘consensual incest’, apparently already legal in New Jersey, Rhode Island, and Quebec

Patriactionary

Sure, they may appear to just be presenting an account of ‘consensual’ incest, but to publish a long interview with a pro-incest advocate as they’ve done, while maintaining an ostensibly neutral, non-judgmental tone, frankly ends up, in essence, giving a platform for advocacy of that view.

(And the progs ridiculed us when we said ‘gay marriage’ was a slippery slope…)

The interview mentions something I didn’t know: that ‘consensual incest’ for those over 18 is legal in New Jersey. Don’t know why, but apparently it is so, as well as in Rhode Island, according to the Wikipedia entry.

And apparently, up here, ‘consensual incest’ is legal in Quebec.

No doubt, eventually progs will start pushing for ‘consensual incest marriage’…

Trinity Western loses consent for provincial law school

Will S.' Anarcho-Tyranny Blog

Typical.

British Columbia Minister of Advanced Education Amrik Virk has revoked his consent for Trinity Western University, a Christian college, to open a law school. Virk cited the fact that law societies in British Columbia and other Canadian provinces have refused to accredit the school’s graduates because of a section of the university’s covenant requiring students, faculty, and administrators not to engage in “sexual intimacy that violates the sacredness of marriage between a man and a woman.”

British Columbia law society votes against accrediting evangelical law school

Global News reports.

Excerpt:

The Law Society of British Columbia has voted against accrediting a proposed law school at Trinity Western University.

In a binding decision, 74 per cent of lawyers voted against TWU’s program, with 8,039 ballots cast in total – more than 60 per cent of all lawyers eligible to vote.

The society says the decision means that “the proposed law school at Trinity Western University is not an approved faculty of law for the purpose of the Law Society’s admission program.”

The vote was conducted by mail and required a two-thirds majority, with a turnout more than 33.3 per cent.

CBC has the reaction from Trinity:

The president of Trinity Western University says he is uncertain if the new law school will open as scheduled in 2016 following the recent vote by the B.C. Law Society members to reject the faith-based institution.

Amaruk Wilderness: Questions raised about company at centre of anti-Christian attack

(See previous post here.)

Patriactionary

An interesting follow-up to what I reported in this post:

As more women who received bizarre and inappropriate responses to their job applications to wilderness company Amaruk come forward, efforts to reach the company’s CEO have left CBC News questioning whether the business and its jobs even exist.

Amaruk Wilderness Corp. hit headlines this week after CBC News reported on a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal complaint, in which a Trinity Western University graduate — Bethany Paquette — claims her application to work for the company was rejected because she’s Christian.

Since Paquette’s complaint was reported, CBC News has heard from other applicants, including Lucie Clermont, who applied to Amaruk last year for a job listed as the executive assistant to the CEO, which promised a $120,000 salary and world travel.

Clermont’s application was met with a number of emails asking awkward questions — some of them sexual — followed by more that…

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

Figures.

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.
