An Edmonton teenager and her mother have successfully filed a complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission, alleging the Edmonton Public School District’s use of a Christian fundamentalist abstinence education program infringed upon their rights as non-Christians.
And it should start a trend.
A similar objection to sex-ed taught by religious nutbars, who, by the way, run fake abortion clinics in the schools' neighbourhoods, was based on the lies and distortions typically offered in such courses.
Why bother with facts and science and tolerance? Let's just cut to the chase and use their tactics against them.
In other words, you have fucking conscience issues, nutbars? So do we.
Take your Christian Sharia crap and stuff it.
