In relation to some recent news stories, Neil Remington Abramson commented as follows (reproduced with permission):
Why are the anti-religious facilitated, while the religious are ridiculed? The Charter guarantees religious freedom, presumably, but a Danish company refuses to hire someone from Trinity Western, because the school is opposed to homosexuality, on religious grounds.
Is it automatic that, in supporting equal rights for gay people, one cannot also support the rights of those opposed to gay practices? It’s an interesting paradox. I suppose it’s the dualism of Euro culture. If one opinion is valid, its opposite is rendered invalid? But then guaranteeing one person’s rights is depriving another. And what has changed, except that liberalism now apparently has more influence, whereas in the past, conservatism was more predominant.
