Orthodox Christian father loses religious freedom and parental rights case


 

OTTAWA – An Orthodox Christian father has lost a religious freedom and parental rights case before the Ontario Superior Court even though the judge agreed his rights were encroached.

  • On Nov. 23, Ontario Superior Court Justice Robert B. Reid denied Steve Tourloukis’ request for a declaration of parental authority in education. He also refused a request that the Hamilton-Wentworth School Board be required to accommodate Tourloukis’ religious beliefs.

Constitutional lawyer Albertos Polizogopoulos, who represented Tourloukis, declined to comment as he and his client are reviewing the court decision.

Tourloukis, a member of the Greek Orthodox Church, had requested in 2010 that the board inform him in advance when teachings contrary to his religious beliefs were to be taught so he could remove his two children from class. Among teachings he listed as objectionable were moral relativism, occult practices, sex education, birth control and the promotion of abortion or euthanasia.

The court action began in 2012 and the hearing took place in June 2016.

While Reid agreed Tourloukis’ beliefs are sincerely held and his Charter rights to religious freedom are impinged, he ruled the school board had properly balanced Charter rights with its other legislative obligations to promote safety, inclusivity, equality and tolerance in a multicultural society.

“The context of the board’s decision not to provide the requested accommodation is, in part, the need for religious neutrality and tolerance in a public institution,” the justice wrote.

“It must respect religious difference and attempt not to interfere with the beliefs or practices of any religious group while recognizing there are 103 schools within its jurisdiction.”

He noted there are many differing religious and non-religious beliefs among the thousands of students who attend the schools.

“Accommodation by non-attendance, which is sought by the applicant, would allow him to isolate his children from aspects of the curriculum that in his religious belief would amount to ‘false teachings.’ However, isolation is antithetical to the competing legislative mandate and Charter values favouring inclusivity, equality and multiculturalism.”

The judge found the board’s actions to be “reasonable,” “prudent” and “a practical response.”

He noted that the teacher’s federation submitted that “the curriculum has so fully integrated the requirements for gender equity, antiracism, respect for people with disabilities and respect for people of all sexual orientations and gender identities that it would be impractical if not impossible to advise the applicant in advance when any of the positions that he considers objectionable were to be taught.”

The federation said such an accommodation would create an “undue burden” on teachers.

Tourloukis had other alternatives in pursuing his religious freedom than sending his children to public schools, the judge said.

“Independent schools, whether faith-based or otherwise, may be available as is, of course, the option of homeschooling,” he wrote.

Reid said “some nuance” is required on the matter of parental rights. “A black-and white declaration of parental authority in favour of the applicant would, in my view, oversimplify the common law principles with which neither party disagrees.

An international research team based at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) in Austria have discovered both a cause and treatment for certain autism spectrum disorders


VIENNA, Dec. 1 (Xinhua) — An international research team based at the Institute of Science and Technology (IST) in Austria have discovered both a cause and treatment for certain autism spectrum disorders, Austria Press Agency reported on Thursday.

The team, led by Gaia Novarino from the IST, found that a large neutral amino acid transporter known as SLC7A5 that is essential in maintaining normal levels of branched-chain amino acids in the brain was found to have shown mutations in several patients with autistic traits.

It was further discovered in testing on mice that the deletion of SLC7A5 led to an irregular amino acid profile in the brain and severe neurological abnormalities.

When the researchers administered branched-chain amino acids directly to the brain, they discovered an improvement in the abnormal behaviors of the mice with an autism profile.

The team said its data showed SLC7A5 mutations as being linked to a neurological syndrome, and that branched-chain amino acids have an essential role in human brain function.

Following further research, it said a cure for a certain group of autism patients could be found in the future.

Turkish bill clears men of statutory rape if they marry


http://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-38030182

AFP

Critics are accusing the ruling AKP party of legitimising rape
A bill which would allow men accused of raping underage girls to be cleared if they marry the girl has been preliminarily backed by Turkish MPs.
The bill would pardon men only if they had sex without “force or threat” and if they married the victim.
Critics say it legitimises rape and child marriage, and lets off men who are aware of their crime.
Violence against women in Turkey has increased in the past decade – 40% of women report sexual or physical abuse.
Statistics also show the murder rate of women increased by 1,400% between 2003 and 2010.
The bill was initially approved on Thursday evening after being brought to parliament by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP). On Tuesday, MPs will debate the bill a second time before casting their final vote.

Analysis – BBC’s Mark Lowen, Turkey
It is a highly contentious bill that has divided Turkey along its traditional secular versus conservative fault line.
The aim, says the government, is not to excuse rape but to rehabilitate those who may not have realised their sexual relations were unlawful – or to prevent girls who have sex under the age of 18 from feeling ostracised by their community.
There is opposition to the bill on the streets of Istanbul. Many say it will encourage men to rape.
But the government will get support among its pious voter base in poorer areas where girls are married off young and the sexual abuse rate is higher. Supporters say Mr Erdogan has liberated religious women by repealing a ban on headscarves in public places.
The vote on Tuesday could spark mass protests.

If it passes it will likely quash the convictions of some 3,000 men accused of assaulting an under-18-year-old.
But critics say as well as overlooking statutory rape (underage sex) it would legitimise child marriage.
Is Turkey increasingly misogynistic?
Women not equal to men, says Erdogan
Turkish students fear assault on secular education
“Sexual abuse is a crime and there is no consent in it. This is what the AKP fails to understand,” said Ozgur Ozel, MP for the opposition Republican People’s Party, according to AFP news agency. “Seeking the consent of a child is something that universal law does not provide for.”
But Justice Minister Bekir Bozdag said it could help couples who have engaged in consensual sex and want to marry.
“When a child is then born from this non-official union, the doctor warns the prosecutor and the man is sent to prison, putting the child and mother into financial difficulties,” he said.

Clericalism, an Historical Church’s Analysis


Priests must serve with simplicity and love

Clericalism
November 16, 2016 by Abbot Tryphon

Orthodoxy has traditionally avoided clericalism, yet in more recent times this very corruption of priestly service has enter the doors of the Orthodox Church. The quest for honor has led many clergy to participate in a culture of abuse, where they even turn on one another in their sad attempt at aligning themselves with “officialdom”. The culture of abuse that is encouraged and fomented by refusing to live in adherence to the simplicity and humility of Christ’s example, is not much different than that of the grade school pecking order where the bully builds alliances based on fear.
It is the same culture that chooses to ignore destructive behavior which undermines the message of the Gospel, and displaces the ministry of healing, replacing it with a worldly culture not unlike that of the fiefdoms of medieval Europe. Those in priestly service must be close to their people, serving as both fathers and brothers, ever being gentle, patient, and merciful. Those in priestly service must be animated by inner poverty, and give themselves over in the freedom of the Lord. Their lives must be in witness to the outward simplicity and austerity of life as exemplified by Christ Himself. Priests must lead their people as loving fathers, and not as local governors appointed by Caesar.
These are dangerous times, and the people of God must be given the spiritual tools needed to thrive as society falters and Christianity itself is under increased attack. The road ahead requires priests be more than religious officials, they must be holy men who lead their people as loving, caring, and merciful pastors.
Love in Christ,
Abbot Tryphon
