There is a town in Michigan where only practicing Christians are allowed to buy or inherit real estate. The bylaw has been around since the 1940s, first passed to prevent Jews from buying, and was strengethened in 1986. Non-Christians can rent. The bylaw is being challenged in Court.
Although this bylaw is clealy discriminatory, my initial reaction is its ok in this context. If a group of people want to create their own community, they should be allowed to do so. But I thought I would put it out here to hear other thoughts.
The article is a good read, btw, as it highlights the issues people are facing as the population has grown more progressive but the bylaw has not.
Canada’s has announced to China that Canada has no freedom of speech and no human right last Friday.

Xiaosong works very hard on the show, he went and talked Europa, America, Latin America, Russia ...... he even went to the South Pole. At the same time he also talked about astronomy, geography, and unofficial talk of foreign things, no matter it is right or wrong, political correct or wrong. However, can hundreds of millions of clicks show audience's approval?
The scripts of the first 24 episodes of the talk show have been published. Over 400,000 were sold.
The Talk show releases every Friday morning at 8 am on Youku (Nasdaq: yoku), swpet all the talk show awards in China. The last episode was released on Friday, Aug 19. It talked many nice parts of Canada: http://www.iqiyi.com/v_19rrlz6vu4.html
However, on the Friday of last week (Aug 26), there was no episode released. This even makes many viewers think if Friday had arrived or not.
Gao Xiao Song has to explain to the audience:

In fact, very free speech in Canada, criticized the government criticized the United States or China casually. But this time they are sent to the relevant e-mail and say that aboriginal human rights and an independent Quebec is absolutely not to mention, if the broadcast will be threatened "to rise to the height of very serious political consequences." As advertised freedom and equality in Canada, feel then? !
Xiaosong at 8:25 on August 27, 2016
On induced Xiaosong Qi audience: this program interviewed a Canadian First Nations (indigenous people) of a sheikh, certainly in the current Government of Canada First Nations policy, through the mouth of the chiefs about their historical experience. And commended New Zealand, the United States criticized the aboriginal policy. Unexpectedly strong Canadian authorities were obstructed, resulting in the program indefinitely postponed the broadcast. Telling the truth is fundamental of my talk show. If I cannot tall the truth, I would rather talk nothing at all.

As we all know there was conflict between the south and north in America that caused The Civil War. 150 years later many people across America still fly the Confederate flag today.
The topic here is it racist to fly the flag?
