UPDATE: Alberta school board wanted pastor punished for defending Bible

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

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.

Revelation 22:19

And if anyone takes words away from this scroll of prophecy, God will take away from that person any share in the tree of life and in the Holy City, which are described in this scroll.

NDP = Godless

That’s the reality.

I’ll bet the scary Skori Lorrie didn’t expect to be outed this a way in all her ridiculous glory. Look out. There is nothing more ‘skori’ than a Marxist marm scorned! I can’t wait to hear the rest of the ‘skori’ story. What kind of mind would come up with such a demand?

- Socialists hate Christians & whenever they get power the war on Christianity begins. These school board people are little Hitlers & Stalins, abusing what little power they have & dreaming of having more one day.

Dan Mancuso, so right on that one. My nephew wanted to be a fire truck when he was little. I’m so happy my sister and brother-in-law didn’t have him equipped with a Transformers style exoskeleton to fulfill this wish. No offense to kids, but they’re not smart enough yet to make their own decisions about certain things. It’s why they can’t drive, vote, or get married. Major medical decisions shouldn’t be left in their hands either.

Last I looked Canada was predominantly Christian. Apparently not!!!

Any school who denounces the bible or promotes anti-Christian values should be dealt with accordingly.

These school board trustees will stand before God one day, and it won’t be pretty!

Say what’s with all these school boards and all the nasty things I’m hearing about their goings on?
Oh right, THEREBEL!

This is kind of related:
“Chilliwack school trustee: Allowing children to ‘change gender is nothing short of child abuse’
Facebook post declares B.C. Ministry of Education is enforcing a ‘biologically absurd theory’”

The lefties will likely be going after this trustee…

A Christian school will certainly use the Bible as part of the curriculum, as they are advertising a Christian based education and Christianity is based on the Bible. The fact that the board takes issue with what parts of a generally unalterable text is used to teach with indicates that it is the Bible as a whole, and Christian education as a whole, that the board really takes issue with. Dissolve the partnership they have had with the Battle River School Division since 2009 and the school division will no longer have a say. As far as implying that this pastor is unethical or worse based on mildly expressed anger in a private email,is ridiculous and more than a little frightening.

Timorous proggy secular warriors way over their heads in responsibility and comprehension – I see petty vindictiveness and paranoia – fear and loathing in Battle River. Surely rate payers who support the school system deserve more professionalism and maturity than this.

Grubby little Maxist, scared of the Competition from above. Fear not you Grubby little Marxist, You are still part of the Flock.

There was a time when people worked face to face and if someone was out to get you, you called them into a closed office and tell them to watch out…and warn them you’ll deny anything they say about that conversation.
Worked like a charm!!!!

Sheila, thanks for the update. This situation belongs on an episode of the Twilight Zone!
The pastor has been through the marxist wringer, and, he has the support of so many people.

SHEILA , they called the cops on you , but you called us on them
Looking forward to the other reports
Like HAROLD said , could you imagine if it involved Islam
commented 2017-10-23 19:07:47 -0400
Well done Sheila, I agree with the pastor that it’s nice to watch these regressive leftists squirm. Keep up your great work and to the pastor, God speed.
It will be comical to read what the Godless trolls to this site will post.

this actually is funny

Sheila, I always love your reporting, but this one is simply Brilliant!!! I broke into uncontrollable fits of laughter … only the sheer idiocy of thinking someone can order a Pastor not to teach Bible teachings (Hey! Try that one on an Imam with a Koran) … but that there is some Christian “Ethics” Ombudsman “in the sky” to complain to! :-)

Ms. G-R,

You made use of term, “Reasonable adult discourse”.

Of course the socialists, such as this school board chair and vice chair, are only chronological adults. They are not intellectually or mentally mature adults.
