Christian school has right to refuse child from same-sex home: Ontario tribunal

Katheeen Wynne’s Mom disappointed at ruling.

TORONTO, September 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A Canadian civil rights commission has granted a Christian school the freedom to follow its own rules.

The Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario (HRTO) ruled that The Private Academy, an evangelical grade school, may turn down a lesbian guardian’s application for their adopted child to attend.

The homosexual activists, who say they are Christian but do not go to church regularly, met with the school principal to get their ward admitted to a preschool program. However, the Christian school — which does not receive government funding — has a moral code that requires families of students to attend a church and share the same biblical values the school advocates.

    “Homosexual advocates who are christian but do not go to church regularly” (I’m guessing “not at all.”) deliberately try to get their child into the one private school out of hundreds if not thousands that requires them to go to church. Sounds like a scam for some of that free “human rights” money to me.

    • Exactly.

      Professional shit disturbers.

      Ruining some kid’s life.

    I’m sure Wynne and little Justin will be calling for legal action. Why don’t they try a muslim school and see what happens?

    • David Murrell

      Muslim schools are allowed (and are even encouraged) to discriminate against homosexuals, since Muslims are higher in the pecking order of “human rights” orthodoxy. Christian schools? Not so much.

    Regardless of what decisions they make, Human Rights Tribunals are an abomination. Scrap them.

    …she considers the lawsuit a case of Christians using civil rights law to violate civil rights.

    Let’s call it “affirmative action” for Christians.

  • Manual Paleologos

    The school may have a legal right to exclude the kid, but I wonder if that would be the best course of action. They have lost the ability to influence the child, to overcome some of his parents’ influence. Isn’t that the avowed mission of a Christian school?

    • Exile1981

      If they did that the ‘parents’ would have sued the school again for saying mean things about their lifestyle.

      • Manual Paleologos

        Depends on how they do it. I’m not sure they should turn the hard cases away.

      It would also set a precedent that would be undesirable in the long run. Once their foot was in the door the demands would have been endless and the whole purpose of having the school would eventually been lost. They have so many Muslim schools that they don’t need to use a Christian one. This is entirely to destroy Christian schools. The same as they are doing with our country.
