A Christian group, Christian Horizons, has been hauled before a human rights court and found guilty of discrimination, required to pay a fine, take Soviet-style state-mandated re-education classes, etc. etc.
Same-old, same-old, in godless Ontario.
The group provides assistance to the disabled. They were not charged with discriminating against their clients. The problem was with their internal moral code -- sex outside of marriage, homosexuality, etc. were no-nos.
Which is a no-no now in Ontario and the rest of Canada, where the right to practice homosexuality is protected, but not the right to practice Christianity.
The argument is made that since the organization receives government funds, it should come under the government's sexually amoral human rights code.
"If you’re taking government money, then you are subject to government regulations which obviously prohibits discrimination."
I'll believe that the day I see the Ontario government require someone to re-hire a confessing pederast. Of course the government allows discrimination -- based on its values and views of right-and-wrong.
What is at issue is the right of persons to dissent from State-approved orthodoxies and ideologies.
The argument over receiving government funds isn't worth much. Those funds are first extracted from tax-paying citizens, including Christians, who have as much right to participate in society as anyone else. They were being paid for a service they were providing. As Christians, they have a conservative moral code. Others don't. They do.
The Tolerance crowd oozes intolerance. They just can't handle the very values they claim to espouse -- tolerance and diversity. Instead, they demand rigid conformity to their beliefs.
And that's the way the Ball bounces.
