Alberta school board censors “offensive” Bible — but not the Koran

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The Battle River School board in Alberta has just told the Cornerstone Christian Academy that it can teach the Christian Bible — but only some parts. The school board will decide which parts.

Now, you can agree with or disagree with the Ten Commandments, or other parts of the Bible, but freedom of religion and freedom of expression are an essential freedom in Canada.

In fact, the concept of the separation of church and state actually doesn’t exist in Canada. Our Constitution has religion hard-wired into it.

(Hey: do you think the Board would ever write to a Muslim school and tell them which verses of the Koran they can’t teach…?)

Battle River School board had a public meeting last night, and half the town came — "but since the agenda was set in advance, they could not speak.”

And we already know that Alberta NDP’s education minister David Eggen hates Christian schools, wants to shut them down, and has already taken steps to shut to that.

So who will stand up for the Christians?

Well, I know one man:

His name is John Carpay, with the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. He joins us next to outline his battle plan — and how we can help. VISIT TheRealBigots.com for more.

THEN: Marc Morano of ClimateDepot.com comes on to reveal that the would-be assassin who targeted Republicans in Virginia this week was an anti-pipeline activist.

I don’t believe that any school should teach that it’s evil to be gay, neither Christian nor Muslim. Both those beliefs are rooted in the distant past. As long as gays have protection under the law, we’re obliged to uphold it in our public institutions. As for people’s personal beliefs, that’s up to them. As Trudeau Sr said, “The state has no business in the bedrooms of the nation”.

- Oh, didn’t the NDP tell you that this is the sort of thing your protest vote was going to be used for? They must have left that out.

- A shooting happened? 97.1% chance it’s a Muslim or a Democrat (is there any difference at this point?)

25 or 30 years ago Ms. Skorie would have gone through life in her job totally unnoticed. But, in todays world little people ( not in stature but in mind) can grab onto a small amount of power and twist it so they can control people. People today are afraid to speak out for fear of labeling and Ms. Skorie understands that. Ms. Skorie is now a smaller lady than she was and doesn’t see that. Someday she might regret what she is doing.

John 15:18 KJV
If the world hated you know ye that it hated me before it hated you.
Mark 13:13 KJV
And you shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
These are pretty plain requiring no cross-referencing and pretty much telling it like it is..
The only people that don’t believe in God are the only ones that have never read the Bible.
god is only asking you to not screw your neighbor over or his wife for that matter but love them and be forgiving and follow in his word…
Not to be selfish and greedy and thinking that your problems are all greater than somebody else’s.
The Bible is just so much common sense that I don’t understand why people would not want to live this way as opposed to living under man’s heavily regulated self-serving nature where taxes perversions and idolatry are the mantra for profit and gain at the expense of their humanity.!

Next this useless country called Canada will start bombing churches filled with people.

Many of the critics of Christianity or the bible are only parroting criticism they heard by people who in most cases lacked basic understanding of the bible which has allowed them to totally distort the message therein. I am by no means an expert but what I have learned is that bible passages are meant to be compared with other bible passages to obtain a more rounded message. There are excellent debaters and books written addressing many of the passages that are often quoted and misunderstood.

The bigoted Alberta education head David Eggen is smirking with delight at this anti-Christian assault. He takes every opportunity to trample on biblical teachings so this should come as no surprise to Albertans. He could care less about the constitutional rights in Canada as these social constructs in his eyes, and he and his allies are busy reconstructing society in their image. Stand up for this Christian school and support John Carpay with your donations today. Maybe he can bring common sense back to this issue or else take the bigots to court to face reality.

DEBORAH GRAUPNER commented, “I’ll bet that beady-eyed Eggin has instigated this for the Non-democratic party.”
I agree that this isn’t likely to be the sole initiative of the school board chair, but hatched as a trial balloon by the enemies of parental rights in education, including Eggen, his union friends, particularly, the Alberta Teacher’s Association, and the likes of ‘Dr.’ Kris Wells from the University of Alberta and his Institute for Sexual Minorities Studies, who was responsible for providing links to hard-core porn at a government-funded web site for K-12 children.
If this board succeeds, then expect the virus to be transmitted elsewhere.

The spokesperson for the board, Diane Hutchinson, has made it clear that it is unlikely that the board would allow themselves to become engaged in a legal battle. Rather, the board, the bully that it is, has pulled out its stick, indicating that it would dissolve the partnership between the Battle River School Division and Cornerstone Christian Academy if the academy doesn’t comply with the board’s demands. I presume that would result in a loss of significant funding for the academy. A dangerous precedent would be set if school boards are allowed to do this.

The head of the Battle River School Board is nothing but a little tin pot bitch who is a symptom of the province’s malaise. Little did Albertans know that when they registered their protest vote, last election, that they would be getting an attempted social revolution. Let us pray that the right gets it’s act together and unites to completely annihilate the provincial NDP and so destroy their political machinery that it’ll be decades before they ever show themselves again…

I’d Love to help. Just lost my entire income. My expertise (arguably 6th ranked in North America) is traditional parenting systems, child-discipline science and the harms of criminalizing parenting via S206 and other U.N. backed anti-family initiatives.

I would ask the Rebel (because you don’t answer any emails) what do you believe is important to society’s future? Do you support families and children? if so, why don;t you defend solid traditional parenting? The science is no longer even debatable, criminalizing parents from interacting with their children collapses fertility rates to extinction levels. This is not a “hot button” issue, it’s fundamental survival. When will someone grow a spike and stand up to say “Enough of this harmful positive parenting ideological rubbish” and start defending solid proven parenting systems?

Violence, child violence. child abuse – physical and other forms, drug addictions, child rape, Disinterest in children, State trafficking / vending and child-sex procurement of children, have all been promoted by the denigration of solid parenting and the destruction of the nuclear family. Most are brainwashed by some perverted ideology – my hope is that you’re still somewhat lucid. Don’t ask me or my panel of parenting experts (of which FOUR are ranked the top 1 to 4 in the USA) … just interview my 10 yo son, and ask him whatever you want. He “gets it” because he’s the minority still interested in a family – why don’t YOU get it?

Ezra, you might want to consider having cameras covering the whole meeting room for the whole time.

I remember one of the events in Edmonton or Calgary about a year ago where an off-camera incident occurred that was staged by some reporter. I think she claimed one of the people in the crowd attacked her when in fact no one did.

It would be good to have all areas of the room covered at all times with video proof.

It would not surprise me if one of the MSM in attendance would do something creepy like that to try to smear The Rebel. The MSM, after all, have very few morals. The end justifies the means for them and they already think conservatives are lesser people not deserving fair treatment.

Everyday there is a new assault.
We can’t let any school board in the country have that kind of power. We can’t let them get away with this.
Likewise we can’t let the left blame us for their violence. We have to start controlling the narrative.

They can only do a hit piece if we don’t have our own taping of the show tomorrow, and it is going to be live streamed. That doesn’t mean they won’t try to fabricate incidences. All Rebels should be on alert for reporters filming anything anywhere and be phone camera/mic ready themselves. Record everything that goes on, special attention on reporters. Follow them.
commented 2017-06-16 21:52:21 -0400
Hope Ezra you have a spine because MSM is going to the event for a total demolition campaign. Keep in mind that the more they smear us, more and more people will be attracted to your site.

A few nobodies on an unknown school board are so arrogant as to imposing their changes on words in the Bible. What they don’t understand those leftist dummies is that, for centuries now, Christians take account of the fact that the Bible was written more than a thousand yrs ago, contrary to the muslims who believe every word of their hateful book as if written in 2017. Someone should send that board of retarded a copy of the Qoran and ask them to highlight every word that they find offensive.
commented 2017-06-16 21:44:05 -0400
Oh ya. The bible is offensive. He spoke to the scholars and they were offended. Very few will enter heaven. So they killed Him.
Thou shall not have false Gods.
That would offend multitudes.
Thou shall not kill.
Who might be offended by that?
Etc. Etc.
God bless John
Ezra. Why don’t you and Hannity organize some violence we can take part in?
I’m just itching.
But lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Amen
commented 2017-06-16 21:20:52 -0400
I have no problem with the banning of the teaching of passages that call for the death, torture or maiming of an “undesirable” (REAL hate speech). However, the passage you presented DIDN’T call for death, only the claim that those people would not enter the gates of heaven.
I may be less opposed to the school board’s actions if there was equal treatment of the Koran and the banning of teaching those passages that call for the death of infidels, Jews, gays, etc.
Fact: Christians are being persecuted IN CANADA. Sharia law is acceptable and supported by the government of CANADA.
The world is upside down.

If the MSM interviews someone at Rebel Live tomorrow, and he/she spews something racist, you should research this person ASAP, because chances are they will be a leftist plant.

Ezra, looking forward to the livestream broadcast tomorrow. Wishing the Rebel Team and invited speakers every success.

The Battle River School board in Alberta should remember they are subject to litigation, public outcry and consequences. Lorie Skorie’s bullying should have a separate lawsuit, it would seem she is the driving force behind the BRSB’s anti-Christian bigotry.

JOHN CARPAY , I’AM going to ( therealbiggots.com ) and my credit card is going to get a workout !!!
commented 2017-06-16 20:54:54 -0400
Ezra, you should have charged the MSM fairy tale spinners double. You know they are being sent to spin and distort what’s being said to feed their propaganda machine. Maybe you should have banned them and let them do a story about that! That would twist their knickers in a knot.

God bless John Carpay, and I’ll send what I can to assist them for this persecution of Christians. I’ll bet that beady-eyed Eggin has instigated this for the Non-democratic party.
commented 2017-06-16 20:47:12 -0400
I’m glad you charged the reporters from MSM to get into The Rebel Live. Maybe they’ll learn something about reporting the news properly while they’re there. We can only hope.
commented 2017-06-16 20:46:45 -0400
Looking forward to tomorrow !! As a Christian I read my bible every day and have never came across any offensive scripture. People that find it doesn’t agree with their lifestyle choices may disagree, but then why are they so concerned? They aren’t being beaten with it or berated, maybe they are afraid it’s true and it scares them. I take it as true and a moral guide for life and if Christians want their children to be taught a moral lifestyle and “quality” education then the anti-christians should have no say. Pick on the evil ones and leave the righteous be.
commented 2017-06-16 20:40:19 -0400
Of course the leftist main stream media is only going to The Rebel Live even to do a “hit piece”.

It is not possible for the MSM to be honest and unbiased.
