There’s a little town in the Province of Quebec called Herouxville, where the Town Council recently passed a bylaw forbidding several social activities such as: stoning women, and forbidding women to drive cars.
It is obvious that Herouxville’s bylaw refers to Moslem practices; since stoning of women for acts of sexual impropriety (true or imagined) is not uncommon within their communities around the world.
And it is indeed against the law for women to drive cars in countries such as Saudi Arabia.
It is very doubtful that Herouxville is at risk of being overrun by a culture, which will dehumanize women, and change the rule of Secular law to the rule of religious doctrine.
Why did the people of Herouxville pass such a bylaw? I don’t know.
But what I do know, is that people throughout North America are singing the praises of the Town Council of Herouxville.
What Herouxville did for reasons I can’t explain, was to simply state the obvious, that in Canada, all people are equal, including women. And in our culture, no one has the right to have dominion over anyone else.
For whatever reason the people of Herouxville passed their bylaw, not only do support it, I think politicians and community leaders everywhere should be supporting it too.
Remarkably, there are politicians who have come outright against this bylaw. And there are politicians such as Quebec’s Premier Jean Charest who would neither support nor reject the bylaw, other than to say that Quebec is a tolerant society.
I can’t imagine a politician or community leader who cannot support a bylaw that says with clarity, that women cannot be forced to acquiesce to the will of men.
And at the same time, I can’t imagine for the life of me, why Moslems within North America would want to reinforce their misogynist stereotype by challenging this bylaw.
Isn’t it amazing how a simple little motherhood-type document that stands for the rights of women, shows how politically correct and cowardly our politicians and community leaders are?
And how it clearly demonstrates how sensitive the Moslem community is to their dirty little secret, which isn’t all that secret.
In all reality, Herouxville might or might not be an open town, where all cultures are greeted as equals. Being in Quebec, that’s doubtful. But doubtful or not, Herouxville opened a debate that was far too long too politically correct to debate.
GOOD ON THEM!
