Need for change in Canada’s anti-discrimination laws is obvious

Charlie Butts   (OneNewsNow.com) Wednesday, February 12, 2014

There is good reason why a pro-family leader is calling on provincial and national lawmakers in Canada to change the anti-discrimination laws.

Transgender people are demanding protection throughout Canada under human rights laws, but Brian Rushfeldt of Canada Family Action believes it's because people confused over gender want to be able to "do anything they want to." He cites an example in Ontario of why the system is not working.

“A man who “self identifies” – that’s the term he's using – as a transgender, was in a ladies changing room,” he tells OneNewsNow. “He stood there with a towel around him in front of a 70 year old woman who had come out of the pool and wanted to change into her street clothes.” 

And there were signs that the man was attracted to the woman. She was horrified and left. She then filed a complaint with the Ontario Human Rights Commission, which responded by saying the man had a right to be in the changing room.

“The chief commissioner of Ontario is a lesbian activist and has been in that position for many years,” he says. “I'm not surprised by this ruling, but she should not be given any power to make this kind of ruling. So we've got to get legislation to take the power away first of all. And if this continues to evolve in the way that it appears to be, we need to have legislation very specifically that would protect women's facilities.”

Rushfeldt quotes Deuteronomy 22:5, which says the Lord detests it when a man wears women's clothing and a woman wears men's clothing.
