I caught a part of Bill Carroll’s show today and I have to wonder why CFRB lets this gas bag use their airwaves.
The argument was about this Jewish professor in York University who wants to continue with the classes in York University despite the fact that it closes down for Rosh Hashana (something to do with a clause by the founders). The professor explains that this is a human rights’ violation as far as students of other religion are concerned. The professor’s argument was that this is actually detrimental to the cause of Jewish people. The more you thrust your religion down someone’s throat, the worse you look.
Then Bill followed it with an idiotic comment which just cements in mind the fact that Bill Carroll is retard. I am paraphrasing :
“Don’t you think that Christians are unfairly targeted, especially in the private sector, when they want a holiday on say Good Friday where the employer would say something like “but are you that religious?” If a member of another religion were to ask for a holiday, they would get it right away. And even though this country was founded on Christianity, it’s the Christians who are always defensive about their religion and the religions of the minorities get a pass?”
Here we go again with “attacking Christianity” theme. Does this guy take his lessons from Bill O’Reilly? I mean, I am really tired of this nonsense theme from “real” Christians and from the politically correct people.
My answer to Billy is : as a member of the minority group, I can take a day off from work from my private sector job but the day off comes from my holiday bank. That goes the same for Muhammad on Eid and the same for Dingane on Kwanzaa and the same for Harpal Singh on Diwali and on and on and on. I don’t know of any company in Canada that says to it’s minority group “sure, go ahead, take a day off as part of celebration of your main holiday. And it will not come from your holiday bank.” But when it’s time for Christmas, work slows down to a crawl as everyone is off, some private companies give a few days off between Christmas day and New Year’s Day, people are slacking as no one seems to want to work…..and what’s that sound? That’s the sound of the management saying “aw shucks. It’s Christmas.”
So Bill. Please shut up. We minorities recoganise very well that Canada is predominantly a Christian country and will be one for a very, very, very long time. Christmas day has been ingrained into the minds of every one around the world. I mean, when even when I was a kid in India, we would look forward to 25th Dec because we knew it would be a day off for all of us.
And if you must take the day off on Good Friday, well do what the rest of us do…..take it from your holiday bank and stop moaning about it.
And can someone please, please shut Jaquie Delaney up? She has steadily become Bill’s lap dog and mouths off absolute nonsense on The Bill Carroll Show.
