I have another update of the Battle River School Division (BRSD) and their fight with the Cornerstone Christian Academy over the right to teach Biblical scripture.
(You can see all of our ongoing coverage of the anti-Christian actions of BRSD at TheRealBigots.ca)
Now, through a Freedom of Information request, I got hold of an email from the school board to an Alberta Education bureaucrat, regarding an official statement the board was issuing:
“The attached will be posted to our website and most likely shared with ‘legitimate’ media outlets."
Government in any form — be it an out-of-control rogue school board or the provincial government — does not get to decide what is “legitimate” media and what isn't. It's called freedom of the press
For BRSD, legitimate means "friendly” — like the Edmonton Journal, whose approach to covering this story has seemed biased in the Board’s favour.
Their totalitarian stunt with Cornerstone Christian Academy shows how little they respect or even understand freedom of religion, freedom of expression and now freedom of the press
