Male high school student arrested and charged when he agreed with women at the school. In a class discussion women were concerned for their safety because male students were "allowed" to walk into the women's restroom.
Catholic Student Charged For Saying Men And Women Are Different
Being in trouble for practicing your faith while attending a Christian university? Josh Alexander, a Canadian Catholic high school student, alleges this is the reason he was arrested and charged last month for simply trying to go to school.
Until he spoke up about his worries about male students using female facilities, Alexander was a student at a Canadian Catholic high school in Ontario.
After he stated that law enforcement had arrested him because of his insistence on the binary nature of the human sex system and his belief that God had created only males and females, he was indeed charged with an infraction.
“They were concerned about their safety, the female students told me because guys were accessing their restrooms. This sparked a heated discussion among students. I gave my take on things and referenced relevant passages from the Bible.
When he tried to return to school, he was “removed from the building for the balance of the year” and “arrested and charged” for his absence.
According to Alexander, he tried to have a conversation with school authorities about how the school had a Christian identity, but they wouldn’t have anything to do with him.
On Friday, lawyer James Kitchen weighed in, telling Fox News that there are “little” legal remedies available to defend Alexander’s free speech rights because of Canada’s “far weaker” constitution.
There is “far more interest in government having the capacity to do what it wants,” he argued, while “much less regard for individual rights and liberties” pervades society culturally and legally. Nevertheless, the Ontario Human Rights Commission can be consulted for legal redress; “we believe there has been religious discrimination based on Josh’s Christian religious convictions, thus we are going to file a complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Commission.”
After his interactions with Canadian law enforcement during last year’s freedom convoy—during which Canadian truckers opposed the government’s COVID-19 vaccination mandates—Alexander referred to Canada as a “pretty humiliating” police state.
