Chicken Little was right

Canada's federal government has decided to legalize gay marriage following a Ontario court ruling. Our Prime Minister is promising that there will be safeguards put in to protect religious freedoms but some are worried about the precedent this sets.

For good reason, as Kevin Steel shows. Only five years ago, in the Vriend case, various political figures were saying that this case--which involved the right of an Edmonton religious school to not hire the gay Mr. Vriend on moral grounds--would never lead as a precedent to anything as socially radical as legalized gay marriage.

Well, the sky isn't falling, it already fell.
