RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS

Transcript: RELIGIOUS SYMBOLS - Canada's role regarging Reigion tends to be neutral - Canada promotes multiculturalism The decision was that Gurbaj was allowed to wear his Kirpan under certain regulations - was appealed and overturned by the Quebec Court of Appeal The Court of Appeal found that allowing the Kirpan would violate and undermine the schools safety and this decision is what stands. Gurbaj later had to transfer to a private school where he was allowed to wear his Kirpan. Do you think that not allowing children to wear the Kirpan to school is not only a violation of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms but also ethically wrong? The school felt that it was their responsibility to keep their students safe and therefore couldn't allow weapons on school property. Religious Connection In 2001, he dropped the Kirpan from under his clothes and the school initially said that Gurbaj was allowed to wear his Kirpan provided that it be sealed within his clothing. Kirpan Class Connection Usually worn underneath clothing His father argued that it was his sons religious freedom and right to equality under section 2 and 15 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms (previously stated) and section 3 and 10 of the Quebec Charter of Human Rights and Freedoms Section 3 Every person is the possessor of the fundamental freedoms, including freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, freedom of opinion, freedom of expression, freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of association. Section 10 Every person has a right to full and equal recognition and exercise of his human rights and freedoms, without distinction, exclusion or preference based on race, colour, sex, sexual orientation, civil status, religion, political convictions, language, ethnic or national origin, social condition or the fact that he is a handicapped person or that he uses any means to palliate his handicap Similar to Section 2 and 15 In the education system public schools are the only education system that prevent religious teachings What is the Niqab? September of 2015, Prime Minister Stephen Harper told reporters that it is "offensive that someone would hide their identity at the very moment when they're committing to join the Canadian family." The elections are coming. And if Thomas Mulcair is elected, there will be a big beautiful pipeline coming, even if we don’t want it. And, even if you’re not in agreement with people wearing the niqab to vote or to be sworn in, Thomas Mulcair, he is! It’s the drop too much. The last straw, I’m returning to the Bloc. In 2002, the boards decision was reversed and decided that Gurbaj could not wear his Kirpan to school, regardless of how it was concealed or secured. The niqab in Canada The Old Testament proclaims, "Once they enter the gates of the court," implying God's court, "they are to wear linen vestments. They shall wear linen turban." Elsewhere in the Old Testament, the significance of the turban is further highlighted: He put the turban upon his head and set the gold rosette as symbol of holy dedication on the front of the turban as the Lord had commanded him. Moses then took the anointing oil, anointed the Tabernacle, and all that was within it and consecrated it. (Leviticus 8,9) Set the turban on his head and the symbol of holy dedication on the turban. Take the anointing oil, pour it on his head and anoint him. (Exodus 29-6) The turban, since ancient times, has been of significant importance in Punjab, the land of the five rivers and the birthplace of Sikhism. Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms Section 2 (a) Freedom of Conscious and Religion Section 15 Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability The Kirpan serves as a reminder of the battle between good and evil Zunera Ishaq Multani v. Commission Scolaire Marguerite-Bourgeoys -The niqab is a face and hair veil worn by women for religious obligation and identity expression Gurbaj Multani, a 12 year old boy who attended public school in Quebec Turban Do you believe the Catholic church should remain relevant in regards to the Quebec government and law? Do you believe that women wearing a niqab are able to wear it while taking oath goes against Canadian values of openness, social cohesion, and equality? Or does it fit in with Canadian values, in the sense that they have the freedom to practice their own religious ways? The dastaar, as the Sikh turban is known, is an article of faith that has been made mandatory by the founders of Sikhism. It is not to be regarded as mere cultural paraphernalia. The turban ceases to be just a piece of cloth and becomes one and the same with the Sikh's head. The turban's importance can be found in just about every culture and religion, starting with the ancient Babylonians to

Transcript: Religious Symbols Christianity The fish was an early symbol of Christian faith that endures today on bumper stickers and businesses as a sign of Christian faith. The fish had been used for representation because the Greek word for fish (ICHTUS), works nicely as an acrostic for "Jesus Christ, God's Son, Savior". Trishula Representation and why: Representation and why: Usually used in Hinduism(Hindu god shiva) Alice McEwen-Singleton Thank you for watching, hope you learned something new about religious symbols. More specifically, it represents and memorializes Christ's death. The empty cross, usually favored by Protestants, reminds Christians of the resurrection, while the crucifix, with the body of Jesus on it, favored by Catholic and Orthodox churches, is a reminder of Christ's sacrifice. Religion(s) used: Religion used: Representation and why: Religion Used: The End Judaism, also was used by Christians and Muslims at various points in history. Lotus Cross Hinduism regards lotus as the symbol of youth, beauty and life. This symbolization is based on the characteristic of the lotus flower itself. Lotus flower grows in muddy water, but in spite of growing in dust and filth, the flower never has even a drop of mud on it. Hindu religion regards this as the symbol of aloofness, this symbolization can be seen quoted in the following stanza of Bhagavad Gita, the holy book of Hindus. Representation and why: Religion(s) used: The Hindu religion/ Hinduism Star of David Fish It does not have any religious significance in Judaism but it is one of the symbols most commonly associated with the Jewish people. Many Jews wear jewelry with the Star of David as part of the design and the flag of Israel has a blue Star of David in the center. In many ways it has come to be a symbol of unity. Christianity The Trisula (or, trishula) is the three-pronged sacred weapon of the Hindu deity Shiva. In a general sense, the trisula represents the deity in his three aspects of Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer. The three points have various meanings and significance, and, common to Hindu mythology, have many stories behind them. They are commonly said to represent various trinities--creation, maintenance and destruction, past, present and future, the three gunas.
