A longtime Conservative who opposes same-sex marriage has been appointed by Immigration Minister Jason Kenney to Canada's tribunal that decides whether gays get refugee status in Canada. Doug Cryer, a former director of public policy for the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, has also publicly defended the right of churches to denounce homosexuality.
I wonder if Cryer agrees with the Minister who appointed him that gay Iranians (and others who live in viciously anti-gay countries) should be able to escape to Canada as refugees. This kind of appointment is alarming and certainly denotes mixed signals from Mr. Kenney. I wonder if the Minister's talk about gay Iranians was just that.
