Last week, I brought you an update to the story about how one Alberta school board – the Battle River School Division — tried to censor the Bible as it was bring taught in a private school, Cornerstone Christian Academy.
(You can catch up on all our coverage of this anti-Christian censorship at TheRealBigots.ca)
We learned through Access to Information requests that the school board chair – a woman names Laurie Skori — called the police to report her hurt feelings because The Rebel told the world what she was trying to do behind closed doors.
But they didn't stop there.
We just found another email where the school board mused that a pastor who spoke up against them in a private email should be subject to an ethics complaint.
The pastor made a mistake we all have made before — He cc'ed the wrong person on the email, which reads:
I agree I think we already have everything we need if Laurie and others will sign off on her promise of no more censorship or interference on Bible teaching. We took out the bad words that got them all worked up. Get it all written up and signed up and I think I have all I need to be content.
Looking forward to seeing which Laurie we get Monday morning: scared Laurie or mad Laurie. I like scared Laurie better.
When the pastor realized what he had done, he was apologetic and tried to explain himself to the board vice chair, Lorrie Sitler.
WATCH to see the email Sitler sent to her fellow board members in reaction.
And I'm not done with this story yet:
In my next report, I’ll show you the Education Ministry picking sides and meddling in the affair.
