Canadian Teacher: "I will not teach lies to children"
QUESNEL, B.C. - Chris Kempling doesn't seem to be enjoying his new role at the centre of a fight over what is taught in schools about homosexuality. He's edgy, and his eyes have a haunted look. He needs sleep.
It has been a rough seven months. Last April, the British Columbia College of Teachers ruled that he had overstepped the bounds of free speech. Now he faces the suspension of his teaching licence. He's short-tempered when a television crew visits him at Correlieu High School in Quesnel, where he teaches Grade 12 creative writing.
"This has nothing to do with my teaching," he snaps.
Mr. Kempling believes, with a conviction rooted in his faith, that homosexuality is immoral, and that it should not be presented to B.C students as a normal and acceptable lifestyle. "I will not teach lies to children," he says through clenched teeth. But at the same time, he insists that he would never force...
I taught Science in a government high school for eleven years. When the law stopped me from teaching Creation as an alternative to Evolution, as well as all this students rights and no responsibility, I decided to leave teaching insteead of breaking the law of man or teaching lies as facts. I had many things which I did to help both children and community like this teacher. It will be the education system's and the students loss if they drive out good teachers. There are too many bad ones already and although there are laws against sex offenders working in these fields, there are many who continue to not only teach that sodomy and pedephillia are normal, but also practise it and will continue until they are caught. Then they hide behind a new identity, move to another state and start again. When will good people stand up and say enough is enough and demand morallity in their laws. Think about what sodomites do! They are worse than animals, sexual perverts and they will contaminate as many other people as they can. Sodomites are not born that way they are infected by others and taught to be sodomites. They don't stop at this baseactivity, but their desires lead them to even worse things like pedephillia, drugs, murder and suicide. How can anyone say this is good or normal?
