Kempling and freedom of thought.
Saying he has no regrets about the past ten years, Kempling announced his intention to take his complaint to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights. He hopes that a favourable ruling will embarrass Canada into reviewing its alleged commitment to free speech for religious minorities. Kempling also said he is planning to write a book about his experiences (Christianity.ca, Jan. 19, 2006).
Prior to the refusal of the Supreme Court to hear his case, Kempling had been denied a hearing by the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. The chair of the B.C. Tribunal, Heather McNaughton, also used to be the adjudicator for the Ontario Human Rights Commission (LifeSiteNews.com, Dec. 8, 2005).
The Equipping Christians for the Public-square Centre in Burlington, ON, is urging everyone to contact the B.C. Human Rights Commission. "We need to jam their phone lines and fax lines, and fill up their e-mail and snail mail boxes with messages of outrage ..." said the Rev. Tristan Emmanuel, Executive Director of the ECP (REAL Women, Press Release, Nov. 22, 2005).
