The Office of Religious Freedom is Finally Buried
Well it took a while, and as you can see the Cons weren't happy about it.
But the Trudeau government has finally buried the so-called Office of Religious Freedom.
And replaced with a new Office of Human Rights.
Justin Trudeau's Liberal government has replaced the Office of Religious Freedom created by the previous Conservative government with an office focused more broadly on human rights.
For all the right reasons.
"The struggle for religious freedom is, at its heart, a struggle for the universal and inseparable freedoms Canadians cherish," the release from Global Affairs Canada said.
"Promoting acceptance and protecting the differences that make each and every one of us so unique cannot be divided into separate, but equal, efforts," the release said.
For the Office of Religious Freedom was never about religious rights or human rights.
It was a creation of the foul tyrant Jesus Harper...
Who never saw a human right he didn't try to violate. And it was just a way to pleasure his rabid religious base.
As Brian Jean the leader of the Wildhog Party made only too clear with this last minute appeal.
Wildrose Leader Brian Jean and MLA Scott Cyr have written a letter to the federal Liberals urging them to keep the Office of Religious Freedom open.
"The office has annual funding of $5 million, a smart and strategic investment in protecting and defending this most fundamental of rights and freedoms," the letter states.
Even though it was a total waste of money, and the Wildhog Party is no bastion of human rights.
Terrence Lo, the former Wildrose vice-president for Calgary-Glenmore who resigned last fall over concerns the party was controlled by an “angry, bigoted” cabal opposed to gay rights, now plans to run as a candidate for the Alberta party in the same constituency.
“I departed Wildrose over the human rights thing and they still haven’t really corrected it,” Lo said Wednesday.
And whatever Jason Kenney might have said about the unholy office's closure...
And the Liberal's hidden agenda.
He too is a bigoted Con hog....
How a low life scumbag like Kenney can call himself a religious person is something I will never understand.
But good for the Trudeau government.
Bye bye theocracy...
