UPDATE on Trinity Western law school case: "The pure definition of 'prejudice'"

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

In their battle for religious freedom and the rights of Christian students, Trinity Western won a case in Nova Scotia but recently lost in Ontario.

Lawyer John Carpay of the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms represents TWU.

He explains how this is possible, how the Ontario judges misinterpreted the basic concept of "discrimination," and then speculates that the case will might go all the way to Canada's Supreme Court.

I think it's obvious that the Ontario court's decision was "purely political," motivated by ideology rather than the law. Can you imagine if Jewish or Muslim law school students were the ones being singled out by the courts?

The Rebel's viewers have been very generous with their support for John Carpay and his fight for the religious freedom of TWU's students. He's very grateful, and so am I.

Can I ask you to keep donating to this worthy (and expensive) human rights battle?

Hey Fern, the bible says Jesus stated, All of those to the left who serve the devil will spend eternity in hell.

Carpay is right, that as a voluntary organization, TWU is no different than any other such organization — like the Liberal Party of Canada — that discriminates in accepting membership. Going back to Justice Dickson’s landmark Charter decision in R v Big M Drug Mart, there is zero evidence or even likelihood of harm or injury to anyone else’s right to hold and manifest their own, non-Christian beliefs and opinions.

I am very glad that John Carpay and THEREBEL are out there fighting on my behalf and the rest of us – both those that get it and those who don’t, won’t or can’t.
When you look at what’s happening in the West today, and it’s more recent quickening, the ‘tool of force’ that is manifesting this totalitarian suppression of all things Christian, is coming from the government and MSM, but mostly from JUDICIAL TYRANNY!
Read the dissenting opinions of the SCotUS’ ‘decision to force homosexual marriage on all 50 states – against the wishes of the 50 million voters who clearly said they didn’t want it! Or the similarities of how homosexual ‘marriage’ was forced on Canadians by the courts. Or abortion. Or read the cases of discrimination against Christian business people, like the Oregon Labor Commissioner Brad Avakian’s criminality and pure fascist nastiness against some Christian bakers there. There are a litany of examples. Describing what is going on as collusion would be an understatement.
It’s getting to be well past the time for some serious civil disobedience here against this intrusion and complete disruption of our lives by the sociopathic elite in the chattering classes, their fellow travelers and their destructive agenda – the destruction of the family unit, Christian moral principles and societal stability through the forcing of homosexual ‘marriage’ on the people by ‘the courts’, is merely one plank in the destruction of our personal and national sovereignty, by these selfsame ‘people’!
The push-back from Christians and conservatives is revving up in the US, from county clerks to Congressmen. More people on the left are starting to have some grave doubts about where liberalism is going. It’s time to stomp this evil to the curb and flush this filth back into the sewer from whence it came and where it shall return… WHOOOOOSSSHSHH

Terry — oops…

Fern — “We need a spiritual awakening in Canada.” Agreed, absolutely. But that awakening will not come from Ottawa, and will come regardless of who or which party is in power, and regardless of our nation’s social and economic situation. Harper has his flaws, too. He’s just the best of a bad bunch of choices — the least wrong, if you will. Christianity was never designed to be the rule of law; it’s a lifestyle, and a heart choice. Please don’t confuse the two.

And this awakening has already begun, in the North. It’s on its way. Be ready!

Evil is abounding! The Bible says there would be a time when GOOD would be evil and EVIL good! We are in that time now! The freedoms of Christians is getting less and less. There are so many people now who couldn’t think straight if they even tried. The Supreme Court judges should not be making the law. Christians have to rise up and speak up! Most Christians are asleep!!! Be very careful to keep picking on Christians! If you want the DEVIL, God will give you the DEVIL. Just think -— we could get Justine T . or. Thomas M. as PM. We would then be a socialist nation! Everything would be considered okay. Smoking M. would be everywhere, terrorists would find Canada a haven and big spending, high taxes and abortions would be the law of the land. The only leader that is sane is Harper. Our freedoms would be sustained only with the PC government. The other leaders would not care about Isreal. We need a spiritual awakening in Canada.

“Ezra, you need to talk less and listen more. "
Hah. That’s a bit like suggesting to your lower intestinal tract that it should learn to play the harpsichord. The production of fecal material is a humble calling, but for some, it’s a career.

Uh…PK? Maybe you should actually read the statement I’m responding to before critiquing my comment? Just a thought.
Here, I’ll help. Glenn said: “Taking this to the SUPREME COURT OF CANADA does not bode well……members of the “political lesbianism” movement were appointed there by the Liberal Party.”
My emphases.

Terry — why are you mixing up the Federal Supreme Court (SCOC) with the Ontario Supreme Court? The federal gov’t does not appoint provincial judges…

“Members of the “political lesbianism” movement were appointed there by the Liberal Party.”
Glenn, would you be referring to Chief Justice McLaughlin (married, with a son), or to Justice Roselie Abelia (married with two sons)? I ask because the rest of the Supreme Court was appointed by Stephen Harper.

Ezra, you need to talk less and listen more.

It makes you wonder what percentage of lawyers are homosexual.

That was moving. Thanks. I wanna contribute but I’m in Alberta. Scotsford started doing shutdown causing fuel shortages. How do you like it without fossil fuel? I suspect they justify it by no profit and protest if industry revenue is raised 25%. I digress. FYI. The final attack will come against the family, Trinity is that. Humility is not thinking less of yourself, but thinking of yourself less. I really appreciate this Ezra. I’m in
