VANCOUVER, June 7, 2002 (LSN.ca) - In May, Chris Kempling, a 13-year teacher and counsellor in the public school system in BC, was declared guilty of conduct unbecoming a member of the BC College of Teachers by the College (BCCT).
Kempling was reprimanded for writing letters to the editor objecting to the promotion of the homosexual agenda in the public school system as well as for writing unpublished research essays, and private letters to her supervisors and elected officials.
The College declared that "everything that you have written in its entirety is derogatory and discriminatory," even though some information was merely quoting previously published research data.
Kempling, who holds two masters degrees and an almost complete doctorate in psychology, objected to the use of Xtra West, a BC homosexual activist newspaper, which has obscene and vulgar classified ads, as a recommended classroom resource.
objected to the use of propaganda produced by the Gay and Lesbian Educators of BC, published and distributed by the BC Teachers Federation
One such item, Counselling Lesbian and Gay Youth, stated "we must dishonour the attitude that heterosexuality is the only acceptable orientation."
Another resource, endorsed by the College, entitled "Challenging Homophobia in Schools", depicts the Biblical characters David and Jonathan as a homosexual couple.
By no means a radical, Kempling is a well respected member of the community.
A community volunteer as a Big Brother, president of the Child & Youth Support Society for 14 years; Employee and Family Assistance Counsellor in private practice and a Registered Clinical Counsellor; appointed by the Minister of Health to be the Chairman of the District Health Council; a Sunday School teacher and lay preacher of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church, Kempling requires support in his struggle against the BCCTC.

Raised in a society still imbued with many of its inherited Christian values, they assume that Islam and Christianity are much the same in their message and how they convey it.
Brockie, an evangelical Christian

In 2002, the B.C. College of Teachers disciplined a distinguished public school educator Chris Kempling for conduct unbecoming a teacher giving him a one-month suspension.

British Columbia - Provinces - The Christian Heritage Party of Canada
President: Chris Kempling
Social conservatives disillusioned with the ...
Social conservatives disillusioned with the Conservative Party have a "pro-life, pro-family alternative" in the Christian Heritage Party, according to Cariboo-Prince George candidate Chris Kempling.
Kempling is a testing specialist and teacher with the Quesnel School District and has a private practice in marriage and family counseling.
Kempling has served as president of the Quesnel Child and Youth Support Society and Big Brother/Big Sisters and Quesnel Bicycle Club.
He has also volunteered with the Quesnel and District Community Health Council, Quesnel Minor Hockey and Maple Park Alliance Church.
"We believe we're the only party that reflects the constitution, as it's written" Kempling said.
The preamble to the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in the Canadian Constitution reads, "Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law..." he explained.
"We believe that should be taken literally," Kempling said.
"[But] we're not interested in imposing a religion on the country.
We believe in freedom of religion."
Kempling said secular humanism has resulted in more harm than good.
One example, he said, is the recent ruling by the Supreme Court that swinger clubs don't pose any harm to society.
"I think it's a very wrong-headed decision.
It definitely sends the wrong message," Kempling said.
"Here we're trying to teach young people to abstain and use restraint, and the highest court in the land is saying partner-swapping isn't harmful to society."
Parliament shouldn't be afraid of using the "notwithstanding clause" to rein in the Supreme Court ? an unelected body ? he said.
The Christian Heritage Party is also strongly against abortion and same-sex marriage.
Kempling has been an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage and is a clinical member of the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality ? an organization which treats homosexuality as a mental disorder.
Despite Canada's increasing secular and multi-cultural society, Christian values should play an important role in the governance of the country.
"In the last census, 79 per cent of people expressed an affiliation with some from of Christianity," Kempling said.
