Progressives have one view of religious rights, and it's the wrong one

Brian LilleyRebel Co-Founder
 

The first fundamental freedom guaranteed in the constitution is religious freedom.

Back in the early '80's, several important people like Pierre Elliott Trudeau, Jean Chretien and the Queen were involved in the repatriation of our Constitution and the creation of the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Since that time though, it seems progressives have become very selective and confused about what constitutes religious freedoms as demonstrated by their response to Harper's recent statement that Canada would continue to stand up for religious freedoms here and abroad.

Brian – Let’s be honest about what we are dealing with here. The part of the left establishment you call “progressives” use the label as camouflage. They are anything BUT “progressive”. I don’t know who resurrected this political label in an attempt to sanitize the progressive record, but they probably did it because they feel the populace is sufficiently dumbed down that it will not bear any stigmata from its previous incarnation of elitist Fabian socialism which believed in social/cultural Darwinism, prohibitionist interventionist government, and eugenics to politically cleanse society of the wrong type of (ethnicity/class/color) people. Elitist statist socialism was what Progressivism translated to. Margret Sanger and Adolph Hitler were both staunch “progressives”

Today’s “progressives” have the genetic imprint of their prototypes in believing in state sanctioned eugenic cleansing, but added to this is a disturbing reflex towards fascist methodology. The Progressive think tanks provide a simple dichotomy which is essentially a pleasant fiction for those dupes who like their politics boiled down to the most unsophisticated, partisan fallacy.

So essentially “progressives” aren’t. Is there any wonder they would like to throw the document which puts restraints on the authoritarian state in the gutter? Progressives are champions of the all powerful state – they need it to carry out their dirty work unopposed.

Thanks for the reminder Brian. I think The Charter is evil.
Rae Fraser, you are absolutely right. Progressivism is regressive.
We can see it all around us, wherever it has taken hold – The West.

“Progressives have one view of religious rights, and it’s the wrong one”

Progressives are wrong on most things. They just don’t have the clarity of thought to recognize it.

Just another example of Canada’s socialists supporting and partnering with islamic terrorism. Force fed islam is the socialist way and it’s coming to Canada if the socialists can get control.

Find out the hard way – and you get four years of utter hell.

Atheists can’t defend religious freedom. They don’t believe in religion, so how can they defend it? They might believe in some form of freedom of conscience, but that’s not religious freedom. If I can’t be a Catholic 24/7, that’s not religious freedom and many atheists are looking to take away the right to live one’s faith in the public square.

I am not going to be around long enough to watch the ‘long con’. And neither are you. I would really like to have the term ‘Progressive’ explained to me.

What ? I am supposed to love a religion that prays 5 times a day that I will burn in HELL?
I should feel guilty for European colonization? Not Likely. Just imagine if the Arabs and their Islam had been the first to screw the Natives. They would all be slaves , dead or Muslims. .
At least with Christians – you have a choice.
commented 2015-08-10 22:14:23 -0400
In other words, in the “progressive’s” attempt to get rid of Christianity, they’re playing right into His/our hands!
commented 2015-08-10 22:13:27 -0400
Actually, Rae, this “persecution” is actually a good thing. “Christianity” should never have been made political in the first place. Constantine did us no favor whatsoever in declaring Christianity the State Religion back in the 400s (the beginnings of what we now know as the Roman Catholic Church). We did much better as a minority, and a nearly invisible one, at that. Records from ancient Rome document how only the Christians would go into disease-infested areas of the city to take care of the sick and dying. Other documents point to only Christians taking care of the local widow and orphan population, and helping those know as “outcast” (including drug addicts and prostitutes).

Today, the Western nations have a form of socialism that includes Welfare (however it’s named, including Employment Insurance and health care) and some form of pension. (When did pensions start to exist, and what right do we have to them, anyways? But that’s a side topic…) What need does Western civilization have of us? We’ve been spoiled rotten.

Let the “leadership”, whoever they may be, take away our rights and freedoms! Let them force us into areas they don’t want to live. Let the Warsaw ghettos be reconstructed in Canada! THEN the politics and religion of Christianity will evaporate, and only those true, die-hard believers will remain. And that’s all it takes.

Are you aware that when Stalin tried to destroy the “church” in Russia, it just went underground? There are documents showing that, prior to the “purge” of the “church”, Stalin knew exactly how many churches there were, where they were, and how many attended. Once these churches were taken out, the believer scattered… and the Body grew, fantastically, and Stalin didn’t know who they were, or where they were. China can tell you the same thing. In Iran, and other Muslim countries where Christians are being rounded up and murdered, the Body is growing at an exponential rate — because the Muslims see Islam for what it truly is, and they’re “defecting”. When persecution comes, the reality shows, and people see the reality.

Let the governments bring this on! Let the Body be driven underground! Let those lukewarm, wishy-washy “attendees” vanish, and let the true Believers be known! Little does the government (ANY government) realize that this is EXACTLY what needs to happen to bring about The End.

Christians need some crazy thing to Unite in the sight of Politicians. Smoking Dope is out—- already taken Wearing a Mask is out….already taken Paedophilia is out——already taken Torture is out….already taken

Persecution of Gays is out—-already taken
Killing of Jews is out—-already taken What is left for us ? I KNOW . GUILT ! This is a Christian. We are GUILTY . And we are SORRY!. Now —Fuck -OFF

But the “progressives” are all for religious freedom… as long as it’s not Christianity, that is…

Pastafarianism, anyone?

I used to know what the word ‘Gay’ meant—everybody ,family and friends getting together and having a ‘gay’ ole time.

Now,it pretty much means that you are a homosexual and all the new variations .
I no longer have any idea what Progressive means. For me, it almost appears to be regressive.
What does Progressive really mean to Justin or Tom ?
