It seems lazy for many of the responders to your coverage of our MP Tamara Jansen’s comments in the C-6 debate to assume, as did Robert Oliphant, that she was calling him “unclean.”
She clearly explained that the biblical quote was a warning against hypocrisy, not against being homosexual.
Do we want to live in a world where we assume the worst of those we disagree with, even when they expressly tell us otherwise?
I find that her position on this bill was reasonable and valuable. She is asking for the wording of the bill to be updated so as not criminalize open conversations with young people who may want to explore various options when it comes to their sexuality.
