Kempling, an advocate of conversion therapy , wrote:. The American Psychological Association finds insufficient evidence supporting the idea that sexual orientation can be changed and notes that conversion therapy can be harmful,  while the American Psychiatric Association questions the scientific validity of the theories behind conversion therapy, notes reports of harm, and actively recommends against it. Kempling challenged his suspension in court, arguing that his treatment violated his rights to free expression because he wrote the letters on his own time, he was expressing common social conservative opinions, and there were no complaints to the school board or the BCCT from the public prior to the disciplinary action.
He also said that it was a violation of his religious freedom rights as his views are based on his religious beliefs. Kempling's right to freedom of expression under Section Two of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms was found to have been breached, but this limit was found to be reasonable under Section One , given the importance of "ensuring a tolerant and discrimination-free environment, and restoring and upholding the integrity of the school system.
While his appeals were in process, Kempling was interviewed by CBC Radio in January, , and made statements similar to those he had expressed in his letters. In response to this, his school district wrote him a letter instructing him not to express his views on homosexuality in any school setting or publish them elsewhere. This interview became the rationale for a formal letter of reprimand from the Quesnel School District, which concluded that Kempling had contravened their earlier instructions. The disciplinary action was taken with the stated goal of "ensur[ing] that there is no poisoned environment for either students in schools or staff working in Board facilities in the District.
District schools must remain places where there is sensitivity to issues and where an atmosphere of tolerance and respect exist. In response to this disciplinary action, Kempling complained to the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal that his religious freedom was being infringed. In November, , the Tribunal ruled that the comments made in the interview were similar to the statements which the Court of Appeal had found to be discriminatory. Concluding that the Quesnel School District would be able to establish that the restrictions placed on Kempling formed a bona fide occupational requirement necessary to "ensur[e] the school system is free from discriminatory attitudes about homosexuals," the tribunal dismissed the complaint.
In that capacity, Kempling wrote another letter to the editor criticizing the recently proposed Bill C, the Civil Marriage Act , which allowed same-sex couples to marry. Quesnel School District suspended him for three months as a breach of its earlier direction.
Kempling made derogatory statements against homosexuals or otherwise promoted discrimination against homosexuals as illustrated by one or more of the following:. In a published rebuttal, Kempling argued that participation in interviews was not illegal; that his statements were biblically-based, Charter-protected religious beliefs; that some citations referred to the actions of others; and that running for a political party is also Charter-protected right.
Since his initial suspension in , Kempling has spoken publicly about his conflict with the BCCT and Quesnel School District and raised funds for his legal challenges through organizations such as Equipping Christians for the Public-square Centre and British Columbia Parents and Teachers for Life. In June, , the Bill C parliamentary committee invited Kempling to testify as an official witness. In a January, press release issued after leave to appeal his case to the Supreme Court of Canada was denied, Kempling stated:.
It is my intention to keep on fighting by filing a formal complaint with the United Nations Commission on Human Rights.
