Brad Wall government seeks law that would allow civil servants to discriminate

REGINA — The Saskatchewan government wants the province's highest court to weigh in on proposed legislation that would allow marriage commissioners to not perform interracial marriages if it is contrary to their religious beliefs.

Justice Minister Don Morgan said Friday that the government is referring legislative options to the Court of Appeal for its opinion on whether the proposals meet the requirements of the Charter of Rights.

"We've given the Court of Appeal two suggested options: one that we grandfather the existing marriage commissioners that are reluctant or refusing to perform a interracial marriage, and the other one would be to create a religious exemption for those and for future marriage commissioners," he said. "It would require us to have two pools of marriage commissioners. One that would be willing to perform the interracial marriage and one that would not.". /parody
Oh, wait... not that section of the Charter of Rights. I guess as long as it's (as Wall's friend Tom Lukiwski so eloquently put it) "homosexual faggots with dirt on their fingernails that transmit diseases", rolling back Charter-enshrined rights is A-ok with Wall.
