STAND OF BC TEACHERS COLLEGE ON HOMOSEXUALITY “HYPOCRITICAL”

CALGARY, April 25, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Canada Family Action Coalition (CFAC) has exposed the hypocrisy of the British Columbia College of Teachers (BCCT) in their action against a Christian teacher who objected to the pro-homosexual agenda being fostered in the classroom.  “The Code of conduct espoused by the BC College of Teachers apparently does not apply to the College elite, but only to the teachers over whom they ‘rule’”, says a CFAC release.  BCCT Registrar Doug Smart has made critical comments to the media about teacher Chris Kempling, because Kempling expressed his views in letters to the editor.  Smart […]

GRAND RAPIDS, April 24, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Michigan law which was to come into effect this month has been challenged by the legal arm of the pro-abortion movement.  The law, which forbids prepayment for abortions, was designed to keep women from being financially bound to abortion providers.
