Legislation by emotion

Have a gander at this.

You know the country is going crazy when we attempt to legislate based on subjective emotion. Perhaps I feel this decision is inappropriate and hurtful? Does that mean I get to sue the BC Human Rights Tribunal? Consistency would say that I could.

Of course, I know how far that would get, because my feelings are not the ‘right’ feelings, nor am I part of a protected group.

It seems that when you lose any objective standard of truth, this is the sort of thing that results. We share something in this with fascism and communism; the subordination of objective truth to subjective feeling, truth being ‘whatever the party says it is’.

Sow to the wind, reap the whirlwind.

    Good grief! It’s another one of many signs of the times we are living…

    May the Lord have mercy, is all I can say… or perhaps better yet, the will of the Lord be done, in all things, at all times. His ways are higher than ours.
    Bless you Peter,

    This is incredible. Pete, is it considered a hate crime in Canada to preach and teach on Romans 1 in your church? Could you be fined for reading Scripture in a service that these folks find ofensive?

    We are starting to fall victim to this in the US as well. We are starting to see legislation passed because it makes us feel good. Whether or not it is actually harmful or helpful is irrelevent.

    Yes – it’s all fine as long as you are a member of a protected group and cannot see beyond the end of your nose…..
