    I sure do , but I believe that the misogynist that I replied to is in the USA.

    For anyone who doesn't know a 'misogynist' is "a man who hates every bone in a woman's body except his".

    Silly me, see I thought we were supposed to address the topic, not attack other posters, at least that is what I have always been told....

    How do you think we feel about concealed carry? You can carry bladed weapons here like you can carry guns in the U.S..

We have a thread in here now about a statue in OK being pushed of Satan's right hand demon to be erected in the town square. We have argued how, and why there should be a separation of any sort of religious, or perceived religious act, and school. Yet now we argue whether a school in Northern neighbors land should be cowing to Islamic religious dictate? Give me a break.

    The Dean was dead wrong, and should be removed, and Europe and Canada needs to grow a pair when dealing with this creeping Islamism and tell them to pound sand.
    We are far more secular than you Americans and bowing to religious pressure of any kind is frowned upon by the government. Our schools are secular and will remain so. The student's religion was never revealed either, he may have been Jewish.

    It is blatant sexism which has no place in modern society.

    Religions has no place in government and the sate must remain purely secular. Quebec seems to be doing the best so far expect they may be taking it a bit too far.

    Yes there are, private but we do have public catholic schools in Ontario and they should be ended but at least judges drew the line there. You will never see Jewish or Islamic schools and Catholic schools will eventually end.
