Dr. Chris Kempling, a public-school teacher and counsellor, was honoured at the event held in Days Hotel in Surrey, where British Columbia Parents and Teachers for Life (BCPTL), who sponsored the event, presented him with a plaque marking the life membership they had conferred on him.
The praise given contrasted sharply with the treatment the educational establishment has meted out to the Quesnel teacher and counsellor. For speaking out in his own time on educational matters, his school board in 2005 gave Kempling a three-month unpaid suspension from his position, and the BC College of Teachers imposed a one-month suspension which he served in March, 2006. The threat of additional punishment by the BC College of Teachers hangs over his head.
Dr. Kempling has been candid about his disagreement with the methodology and goals of his union's program to foster acceptance of homosexuality, and wrote to his local paper expressing his views. He was also interviewed by the CBC. For these activities he has been penalized by the BC College of Teachers and is still under pressure from that organization. As well, his superior in the Quesenel teaching system has attempted to prevent his speaking out on the issues he has raised.
Dr. Kempling, after receiving the plaque marking his life membership in BCPTL, gave a forthright talk entitled "What I Am Not Allowed to Speak On."

It also means that Christian or Sikh or Muslim students should not be indoctrinated with false teachings about sexuality which directly contradict the values of their faith.
Christian parents, talk your children as I have done with my own, and tell them that you expect them to intervene to protect those who are subjected to name-calling and harassment.

Working Together to Spread the Truth
We have worked together with traditional pro-life organizations, and with CASJAFVA and REAL Women, participating in rallies and meetings in support of marriage and in support of the right of teachers such as Chris Kempling to speak out on behalf of youth. We have communicated with the Office of Life and Family and Focus on the Family.
When the public-school teacher and counsellor Chris Kempling was found by the BC College of Teachers to be guilty of "conduct unbecoming" a member, merely for exercising his right of free speech in criticizing a program of the teachers' union, we saw a basic liberty again being disregarded.
Social conservatives disillusioned with the ... [cached]
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.
VANCOUVER, June 7, 2002 ( - ..., 12 Feb 2009 [cached]
VANCOUVER, June 7, 2002 ( - 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.
Further, Kempling 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. He will be appealing the verdict of the BCCT.
British Columbia Parents and Teachers for Life has urged people to support Kempling by praying and:

The case of Dr. Chris Kempling
Read what happened to Dr. Chris Kempling, a prominent member and local spokesman of the Christian Heritage Party in B.C.:
Who is Dr. Chris Kempling?Chris has been a teacher and counsellor for 16 years in Quesnel, B.C., with two masters degrees and a doctorate in psychology; 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; past member of the Quesnel Christian Ministerial Association, and an elder, Sunday School teacher and lay preacher of the Christian and Missionary Alliance Church.
Dr. Chris Kempling, 250-983-3949, Quesnel, BC V2J 5R5,
Chris Kempling was disciplined by his professional body, the B.C. College of Teachers, for writing an article in his local newspaper, objecting to the promotion of homosexuality in the public school system.The case arose out of a complaint filed with the College in July, 2000.
The B.C. Supreme Court upheld the discipline and said that Kempling was not entitled to the protection of the Charter because he was writing in his professional capacity (teacher).This judgement opens the possibility that any professional association can discipline a professional for any politically incorrect statement made in public-especially statements based on religious convictions.
Read the following quote from a message dated August 2, 2003, from Chris Kempling regarding his BC Supreme Court Hearing:
"In other words, the BCCLA apparently believes that teachers who publicly express a religious belief about homosexuality, or who believe orientation can be changed through therapy, should be prevented from working in the public school system, or suspended indefinitely until they recant.I'll let you draw your own conclusions about what that means for civil liberties for Christian teachers in the public school system."
Dr. Kempling and his legal team (again) faced off against the College of Teachers and their allies on April 21 and 22, 2005 in Vancouver's Court of Appeal.It will likely be several months before the judges release their decision.The case will decide whether Christian teachers have freedom of speech and the freedom to express their religious beliefs on their own time.Dr. Kempling is appealing a decision of the College which suspended him for one month.
Dr. Kempling's lawyer is actually not too hopeful of a positive outcome in the trial, and believes it will be necessary to carry on to the Supreme Court of Canada.
It is doubly difficult at this time, since Dr. Kempling is currently enduring an additional three-month suspension without pay for publicly objecting to the Liberals' same-sex ‘marriage' legislation as a spokesman for his political party, the Christian Heritage Party.
On April 4, 2005 the Quesnel School District suspended Dr. Kempling for three months, because earlier this year he had written a letter to the editor of the local newspaper, as a spokesman for the CHP, criticizing the Liberal government's same-sex ‘marriage' legislation.
The school district did not provide a single example of disruption to the school system, or any negative effect resulting from his letter.
It is important to note that, because of this decision of the Quesnel School District, the Christian Heritage Party has become a directly affected participant in what is all happening to Dr. Kempling.
Let's conclude with a quote from a speech by Dr. Chris Kempling to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights delegate briefing in New York City on March 4, 2005:
