Legislation proposed in the Canadian province of Ontario would criminalize public displays by Christians deemed hateful to Muslims, the LGBT community and other victim groups designated by the radical Canadian Left.
While Christians in the U.S. were given a reprieve with the election in 2016 of Donald Trump; Canadian Christians have been suffering under the Globalist/Marxist rule of Justin Trudeau.
“When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn. Scornful men bring a city into a snare: but wise men turn away wrath.” Proverbs 29:2,8 K(JV)
Don’t let his cute face fool you – he is a snake in the globalist grass, and Christians in Canada are becoming alarmed. Before Trudeau came to rule, Canada had a wonderful prime minister in Stephen Harper, who is a Christian man and a blessed friend to Israel and the Jews.
I have tried to keep up with reports about Trudeau through the years. Today, a reader of my articles wrote to me about the Leftist PM of her country. It was heart wrenching as I read her words. She asked for much prayer for Canada.
Canada Moves to Ban Christians From Demonstrating in Public Under New Anti-Hate Proposal
FROM BIG LEAGUE POLITICS: The bill, “Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queen’s Park Act, 2019,” bans any demonstration, rally or other activity that is deemed hateful by the Speaker from being permissible on legislative grounds – effectively insulating the government from Christian speech.
The nebulous nature of Canada’s anti-hate laws essentially give leftist legislators carte blanche to ban all Christian protest:
THE PROBLEM WITH THIS BILL, HOWEVER, LIES IN THE FACT THAT THE DEFINITION OF “HATE” IS UNCERTAIN UNDER CANADIAN LAW. AS A RESULT, UNFORTUNATELY, THE USE OF THE WORD “HATE” CAN BE A USEFUL TOOL FOR SOME TO PREVENT DIFFERING VIEWS FROM BEING EXPRESSED. THAT IS, THE WORD “HATE” CAN BE USED TO SILENCE OPPOSING VIEWS EXPRESSED WHEN, IN FACT, THE VIEWS ARE SIMPLY A REASONABLE EXPRESSION OF BELIEF.
THIS CONCERN IS BASED ON ACTUAL EXPERIENCE. CANADIANS HAVE ALREADY EXPERIENCED THE CONTEMPT SHOWN BY THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA TOWARDS SECTION 2 OF THE CHARTER OF RIGHTS WHICH PROVIDES FOR FREEDOM OF OPINION, EXPRESSION AND RELIGION. IN THE TRINITY WESTERN CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY CASE (2018), A PRIVATE CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY’S MORAL COVENANT WAS DEEMED HATEFUL AND DISCRIMINATING. IN THE BILL WHATCOTT CASE (2013), THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA CONCLUDED THAT THE EFFECTS OF AN EXPRESSION USED, NOT THE COMMUNICATOR’S INTENT, ARE WHAT IS RELEVANT. THE COURT WENT ON TO CONCLUDE THAT “TRUTHFUL STATEMENTS AND SINCERELY HELD BELIEFS DO NOT AFFECT THE FINDING OF “HATE”. MR. WHATCOTT MERELY EXPRESSED IN HIS PAMPHLET THE WELL-ESTABLISHED FACTS ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY WHICH THE COURT HELD TO BE “HATEFUL”. IT IS WORTH NOTING THAT THE SASKATCHEWAN COURT OF APPEAL, PRESUMABLY CONSISTING OF EQUALLY LEARNED JUDGES, HAD PREVIOUSLY CONCLUDED THAT THE PAMPHLET WAS NOT HATEFUL. THE SUPREME COURT OF CANADA PRIDES ITSELF ON BEING A “PROGRESSIVE” COURT AND HAS AN ESTABLISHED BIAS AS EVIDENCED IN A SERIES OF DECISIONS THAT HAVE STRUCK DOWN LAWS BASED ON TRADITIONAL VALUES. THERE IS LITTLE LIKELIHOOD THAT THE COURT WILL PROTECT TRADITION-BASED GROUPS IF THEY ARE DENIED THE RIGHT TO DEMONSTRATE AT THE PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE. SOURCE
As Canada becomes more restrictive toward Christianity, they open their arms for the LGBT agenda and Islam to take a foothold in their culture.
The Royal Canadian Mint issued a commemorative coin last month to celebrate homosexual love as a core principle of Canadian society.
