A left-wing bureaucrat attacked a Christian school for teaching the Bible. But now the school is fighting back in court!

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Last year we told you about the Cornerstone Christian Academy in Alberta.

A bureaucrat at the Battle River School Division, Lauri Skori, literally ordered the school to stop teaching passages in the Bible that she personally disagreed with.

For example, Skori ordered the school to stop teaching a passage from 1 Corinthians, because she finds it “offensive”.

Not just that, but the bureaucrats tried to put a gag order on the school, to forbid them from talking to anyone about what the school board was trying to do!

Things have gone from bad to worse. Rather than respect the Cornerstone Christian Academy’s religious freedom, the school board has served the school notice that it will be officially kicked out next year — so the school won’t get any funding. It’s effectively being shut down, because a left-wing, anti-Christian activist doesn’t like the Bible.

But I’ve got good news: Canada’s best (and only?) civil liberties lawyer, John Carpay, is taking the school board to court, to stop the Battle River School Division from banning the Cornerstone Christian Academy.

Here’s my interview with John, where he describes the situation, and what he’s doing about it:

Last year we raised more than $5,000 for John his team to help the school — they tried to reason with the school board, and negotiate an amicable solution. That failed, so unfortunately, they have to sue.

Let’s help them out.

I’ve promised to help him raise another $2,000 to help pay for his team of lawyers to fight for the school’s freedom of religion, against government censors.

If you agree that this anti-Christian bigotry is unacceptable, please join with me in helping to chip in to support the school by clicking here.

Of course there are many similarities between the Bible and Koran, they shared many of the same authors.

“The following are the names of the prophets that are mentioned both in the Quran and the Bible. The names pronounced in Arabic appear in parentheses.

Adam (Aadam)
Enoch (Idrees)
Noah (Nuh)
Salih
Abraham (Ibrahim)
Ishmael (Ismaeel)
Issac (Ishaq)
Lot (Lut)
Jacob (Yacoob)
Joseph (Yusuf)
Job (Ayyub)
Moses (Moosa)
Ezekiel (Thul-kifl)
David (Dawud)
Solomon (Sulaiman)
Elias
Elisha (Al-Yasa)
Jonah (Yunus)
Zachariah
John (Yahya)"
The “passages” she finds offensive, are most likely to also be found in the Koran. Will she also demand they not be read in class? Highly doubt it, she would then get actual death threats.
“God’s knowledge and power
Regarding God’s power, following are some of the verses.

Quran 57:22: “No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but it is inscribed in the Book of Decrees (Al-Lauh Al-Mahfuz) before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allah.”
Quran (63:64): “Then tell Me about the seed that you sow in the ground. Is it you that make it grow, or are We the Grower?”
The New Testament states the following:

John 1:3: Through Him all things were made; without Him nothing was made that has been made.
1 Corinthians 3:7: So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow."

This just floors me! Soooo…..it’s just fine to discriminate against a Christian School, but what about what Islam is teaching about Homosexuality in their schools? Like I don’t know….blind folding gays and tossing them off of high buildings, sending them to their death!!! The hypocrisy and biased attitude is just simply stunning to me! Christians are simply being taught that homosexuality is immoral and a sin, UNLIKE Islam that outright promotes murder and human rights violations all the time. Where is the outcry from Laurie Skori on that?

Ken Martinson only one religion is allowed to do that and it ain’t Christians. Also for some reason commies can spout off things like that.

Why are conservatives to passive? This bureaucrat should be criminally charged. 119 Corruption, , 264 Criminal Harassment, 336 Criminal Breach of Trust, 380 Fraud. How about something like 121 Breach of Statute? Specifically, the UN Human Rights Declaration Article 26 … (3) Parents have a prior right to choose the kind of education that shall be given to their children.

That is … not a government bureaucrat.

The other issue is “Hate Speech”. Can a religious group teach that “gays should be killed” if it is in their religious text? Is that covered under Freedom of Religion?

Thanks Ezra. The mockery starts at the top.

Our PM and his brother have shown their disrespect for Christianity through their mockery of the Last Supper with their ‘happy birthday’ Christmas sweaters. (remember Justin and Sasha were born on Christmas day!) https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/justin-trudeau-wears-blasphemous-happy-birthday-jesus-sweater-mocking-the-l

Thankyou Ezra for taking this up because I haven`t heard anything from our “fake” media about it!
FYI the Catholic Civil Rights League is another group that would support the school. They were involved with the proposed Trinity Western Law School in B.C.
Canada is becoming totalitarian as fast as a snowball can roll downhill! Pluralism is a figment of our imagination today. Group think is rampant and people of faith who know their God must band together and support one another, as you are doing Ezra. My respect to you and my support..

April 17, 2018, ‘your honour, Ms Skori would like to approach the bench’; likely may go down this path! “36. In the meeting Ms Skori yelled at members from the society, threatening to sue them individually and corporately, called them names and pounded the conference table with her fists. Ms Skori was eventually compelled to leave the room due to her emotional state.’ (Whatever became of rational debate!)

As reported by Sheila Gunn Reid, Laurie Skori, chair of the Battle River School Division, falsely claimed that she had received threats and had reported the same to the RCMP:

Skori forgot to demand that Cornerstone Christian Academy remove the biblical commandment that thou shall not lie and bare false witness against your neighbour.

Next thing you know Laurie Skori will be making accusations that she is being bullied about this issue by Christian bigots because she is a woman.

Wait…she already has.

M-103 at its best. The Liberal snowflakes fall over themselves to right the imaginary wrongs. You want to cut the funding then do it for ALL religious schools.

Lorie Skorie doesn’t have the sense to resign; the Board is backing a loser!

Have they analyzed the Quaran?
In case of Islamic schools virtually the whole Quran would have to be obliterated!!
When will this happen???
commented 2018-01-09 17:05:41 -0500
This would not have happened in the school was Islamic.

They need to team this lawyer up with Shawn Buckley. This is a really big case that needs to be stomped out before it becomes a trend…

Lauri Skori = NDP marxist ?

Did you know that most of scriptures in the Bible including those scriptures reffred to in this report are recognized as true by Muslims; they call the Bible “hadith scriptures”. If You want to win the PR battle just say “The School Board told shool to stop teaching scriptures recognized by Islam” Then hire some Muslim Imam to call CBC to complain!
