I’m all for religious tolerance as long as they are also tolerant of others. I’m intolerant of intolerance. The Supreme Court of Canada just made an important ruling with an 8-0 victory for freedom and tolerance. I think it’s time for some Canadian gun owners to start a new religion to “push the envelope” just a little bit more for the cause of freedom. Here are the details on the ruling:
For nearly five years, Gurbaj Singh has argued that he has a legal right under religious freedom to wear a ceremonial dagger to school.
The Supreme Court of Canada now agrees with him.
In a unanimous 8-0 decision yesterday, the top court sided with Singh, now 17, that a Montreal school board went too far in banning his wearing of a Sikh kirpan, stating that it is an infringement on religious freedom that “cannot be justified” under the Charter of Rights.
