He should not be allowed to stay in Canada, as he is using the country to avoid prosecution as Majic stated. He enlisted, and probably did so because
he saw no battlefield in his future, but he did take an oath yes, and as such, since he violated same he should be prepared to accept the punishment,
That said, to those bereating him for backing out on an oath before God, I think rationale eludes you. Are any of you divorced, and if so what
happened to that oath? I am guessing that whether one enlists or is drafted, the oath before God must be taken, and that oath places country first,
which runs counter to God' demands, I don't know of commandment e demanding defense of country is before. Furthermore, it seems to me that those
emulating a war stance, have decided that their country comes before their family. Imagine that! Mothers, fathers, wives, husbands, sons, and
daughters take a backseat to a piece of land. What prioities!
Finally, it appears that this conscientous objector plea proviso is nothing but poppycock, where some idiomatic interpretation of his having claimed
he would not always turn the other cheek, renders his mindset on the killing of others void, and no doubt this verdict was made by the military. To
teach him a lesson they assign him a post which forces him to be responsible for his comrades. This is nothing shy of ignorant, for what if the man's
emotional distress causes him to drastically err, will the military be taking responsibilty for the deaths of his comrades? Never!
