Canadian Christian Allegedly Victimized by ‘Viking Discrimination’

A Christian graduate from a Canadian university, which makes students sign an agreement to not engage in sexual relations outside heterosexual marriage, was allegedly denied a job at a Norwegian wilderness tourism company. The women, Bethany Paquette, claimed to have been rejected by the company on the basis of her faith since she is a Christian.

According to Paquette, her job application was rejected in Canada’s North for Amaruk Wilderness Corp. due to her faith and because she is a graduate of Trinity Western University. She stressed that being attacked due to her religion had hurt her. She claims to be an experienced river rafting guide and alleged to have applied as a wilderness guide for the company’s northern Canadian branch. The hiring manager of the company, Olaf Amundsen, mentioned in the rejection email addressed to Paquette that “unlike Trinity Western University, we embrace diversity, and the right of people to sleep with or marry whoever they want.”

Trinity Western University, i.e. Christian university in B.C., makes all its students pledge to abstain from sex of any kind unless they are in a heterosexual marriage or else they would be expelled, but Paquette stresses that it doesn’t affect the kind of worker she is. In her response to the rejection email, Paquette stated that “your disagreement with Trinity Western University, simply because they do not support sex outside of marriage, can in fact be noted as discrimination of approximately 76 per cent of the world population!!! Wow, that’s a lot of diverse people that you don’t embrace.”
