Imagine That! I’m Wanted For ‘Hate Crimes’ In Canada…

It seems I have some liberal knickers in a knot north of the border.

The left is anything if not predictable. It tickles me to no end when, by way of their utterly unhinged reaction to one of my columns, secular-”progressives” end up proving true the very point I was trying to make.

Last month, I wrote an opinion piece headlined, “The coming Christian revolt.” It was featured in multiple publications, including the print edition of the Newfoundland Herald, a weekly news and entertainment magazine circulated throughout Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

Among other things, I noted this objective reality in the piece – a reality demonstrated with crystal clarity by liberals’ (to include the Canadian government’s) contemptible response to the column itself: “To fully advance the causes of radical feminism, abortion-on-demand, unfettered sexual license, ‘gay marriage’ and the like, the pagan left must do away with religious free exercise altogether [not to mention free speech].

“Under the guise of ‘anti-discrimination,’ Christians today face discrimination at unprecedented levels. …

“Christians,” I continued, “true Christians – regenerate, Bible-believing Christians who strive their level best to maintain fidelity to the word of God and honor His commands – will not, indeed cannot, participate in, approve of, facilitate or encourage certain behaviors deemed by the Holy Scriptures to be immoral or sinful.

“It is not done from hate. It is not done from bigotry. It is done neither from a position of superiority nor a desire to ‘impose our beliefs’ upon others.

“It is done from both obedience to Christ and compassion for our fellow fallen who yet wallow in folly. …

“In the ongoing culture war, it seems there are no rules of engagement. The secular left will accept nothing short of unconditional surrender. That is to say, the pagans demand that we Christians abandon the biblical worldview altogether, and adopt their own.

“This will never happen.”

You could’ve timed their response to a stopwatch. Want to see a collectivist conniption? Drop an unvarnished truth bomb in the middle of Canada, most of Europe, or blue-state USA–and sit back for the mouth-frothing. It’s quite a show. The bright light of salty truth both blinds and burns those given over to reprobation.

CBC News, the “largest news broadcaster in Canada,” reported on both my column and the ensuing response: “Members of a Newfoundland and Labrador Pride group were so outraged about a two-page anti-gay [read: Christian] letter to the editor published by an entertainment magazine in the province, they filed a human rights complaint.”

Several other “gay rights” organizations have since picked up their pitchforks and joined the mob. The Canadian government was likewise quick to react. Remzi Cej of Canada’s “Human Rights Commission” (something between a Star Chamber and a kangaroo court, but without that level of credibility) said, “he’s disappointed that the Herald has cited ‘free speech’ as justification for publishing the opposing view” (because, of course, to the leftist, free speech is only “free” when it’s speech with which they agree).

  1. Homosexuals are to heterosexuals as Bizarro Superman is to Superman.
    Homosexuals should thank their lucky stars they were not born in other nations and cultures, in other times.
    And thanks to the free world! And are we not fortunate in the world at large? For we may all enjoy the talents and contributions of a few of these.
    But human rights are universal or nothing, so no special rights exist!
    Alas, who will say whom is "special", for where pray tell would that end? In a Papal monastery, perhaps.

  2. No one is trying to stop these homos from being who they are but that does NOT mean that we have to accept their lifestyle as being normal because it is NOT, just like they express their opinion we have a right to our opinion and disagree with their life style.

    These homos forgot if it were NOT for their parents male and female, they wouldn't be here, so what is there problem? the fact is two same sex can NOT procreate but most important God called it abomination

      Your right about these fudge packers why do they think we should have to go along with their views and they can condemn our rights to say what we think.I can't believe a parent is proud of his off spring being a Pillow Biter.We have to love our children or grandchildren but we don't have to like it.
