Controversy[edit]

In an article published in the Literary Review of Canada, entitled "Living Better Multiculturally: Whose Values Should Prevail?" Stein proposed traditional religious groups must either abandon any religious beliefs that conflict with the ideologies of the state, notably that of radical feminism, or cease to make any claims to special financial considerations for their charitable, non-profit works for the community. In her words: "Religious institutions that systematically discriminate against women are recognized at least implicitly by government. They enjoy special tax privileges. Religious institutions do not pay property tax and most receive charitable status from the federal government. Does it matter that the Catholic Church, which has special entitlements given to it by the state and benefits from its charitable tax status, refuses to ordain women as priests? How can we in Canada, in the name of religious freedom, continue furtively and silently to sanction discriminatory practices?”

The first sentence seems to lack a neutral point of view. I wouldn't call a desire for equity "radical feminism" unless I was some sort of misogynist. Esptoronto 16:28, 19 July 2007 (UTC)

Seconded. The notion that women should be allowed to participated fully in public life is, by no definition, radical feminism. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 70.51.148.45 (talk) 02:17, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Jewish background[edit]

She also happens to be a Jew. Is it a coincidence that this woman is involved in the creation of the ridiculous GhostNet accusation against the Chinese? Are the Jews trying to divert the attention from the dire financial crisis they had thrown at us? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 201.51.48.229 (talk) 18:11, 29 March 2009 (UTC)
