Re: Anti-Christian bigotry has become politically acceptable (May 9). Sen. Donald Plett seems incapable of understanding that those opposed to Trinity Western University's covenant agreement forbidding sex outside the traditional definition of marriage is not an attack on Christianity, but rather an "attack" on those who discriminate against gays and lesbians and then hide under the cloak of the Bible.
The issue is not religion -- it's discrimination.
It's interesting that Plett writes passionately of upholding the rule of law and the ruling from the Supreme Court of Canada. Sen. Plett's Conservative party was held in contempt by Parliament in 2011 for abusing its powers, and more recently attempted to rewrite the Supreme Court Act via the budget omnibus bill.
Plett's article provides more fodder for those of us who feel the Senate needs to be abolished.
