Trudeau doubles down on his war against Christians

Ezra LevantRebel Commander


We told you about this bizarre new requirement to get a summer jobs grant in Canada.

Basically, this grant program is a subsidy for small companies, or non-profits, to hire young people for the summer. 

But there's a pecking order. Employers already had to say what race job candidates are, or what languages they speak.

And then, as we reported, the Trudeau Liberals added that companies and organizations had to swear they agree with Trudeau on moral issues, especially on "reproductive rights" —meaning abortion.

Our docile national media doesn’t much mind, but some religious leaders do. Catholic bishops across Canada are instructing their followers not to sign the attestation.

So this week, the Liberals put out what they call a "clarification" on the subject. Tonight I'll walk you through it, as they torture words like "mandate" and "respect" in weird ways.

This "clarification" was obviously written by people who have never a.) gone to a church or b.) run a company.

In other words, Liberals.

If I were a religious summer camp, or any other organization, I’d say: don’t take the money. The time it takes you to fill out all the forms, the invasiveness of it all — use that time to run your actual business and be free.

There are other things in life besides money. Freedom is important, and so is the rule of law, and limited government. They’re at risk.

I care — and I hope you do too.

NEXT: "It's like Trudeau ranks pro-lifers as worse than jihadists":

That's Edmonton Sun columnist Lorne Gunter's take on this issue, and tonight he joins me to talk about whether or not the prime minister's attitude will backfire on the Liberals.

THEN: New Brunswick PC MLA Brian Macdonald comes on to talk about the Nova Scotia fracking ban, which is costing his province dearly in terms of jobs and revenue.

Andrew Stephenson please dig up even one example of this affecting a Muslim. I will wait. And this is the action of a dictator and you know it.

Dear Prime Minister Trudeau,

As one of your most loyal serfs, I was thinking today what a splendid idea you and your government had in forcing everyone who wanted to participate in the Summer Jobs program (or whatever it is called) to ‘attest’ to your thoughts.

In fact, it occurred to me that you could take this a few steps further and force everyone in Justin Liberal Canada to kowtow to your thoughts to obtain every benefit that touches on Canadian citizenship, for example the right to vote.

Then I had an even more interesting thought: why not print up a little red book, just like Mao did in your favorite country, China, called “Thoughts of Chairman Justin”, and force everyone to read it every day and obey it without question.

Well, I hope you appreciate my small contribution to your ongoing program of improvement of our country. Oh, one more thing: You might want to give this program a name. How about “The Great Liberal Cultural Revolution”? Eh? Eh?

Servilely Yours,

Justin Liberal Canada

Trudeau’s redefinitions of “core mandate” and “respect” are put forth by “the party”.
Big Brother Justin has dictated it as fact, therefore it must be so.

Correction Ezra, we Christians do what we are comissioned by God regardless of the law of man. Acts 5:29 “Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.”

Business owners are used to sign forms to various gov’t agencies but this one will stand out and will not pass unnoticed, I believe. I would never in my life sign such an attestation to any government, even if they had put anti-abortion in it. I’d prefer to not get any grant, and probably re-visit the need to hire for summer jobs. No gov’t has the right to force their own moral values, especially when they have none like those leftist islamo-fascists, and I truly hope that a few companies sue them.

It’s amazing in this day and age that people still believe that there is a man living in the clouds that watches over us when we have completely laughed off other crazy beliefs from the past. The Bible and God is completely illogical and obviously needed for the weak minded.

That’s funny, James, since you are mentioned in the Bible.

If I see Justin I will ask him this question: Mr. Prime Minister, how do you reconcile your being in favour of womens rights and the LGBTQ while at the same time you attend and be friendly with Wahabbi Mosques that promote the killing of gays and relegate women to the balcony or the back of the room?
commented 2018-01-26 00:40:40 -0500
Not sure that I would agree with New Brunswick PC MLA Brian Macdonald that the opposition to fracking is because of a safety issue, but, rather, an ideological issue, embracing man-made global warming. Would love to have you ask Macdonald if he believes in man-made global warming.
He asked, “If we don’t have resources, what else will we replace it with?” Answer: Transfer payments (essentially welfare) for self-imposed provincial poverty.

Ron. You might be right, but we can try through the courts, biased as they may be, with enough signatures from the public, reform may be possible. Besides, the Laws of War state that you have to try all other options first.

Ezra, “You can’t have as a goal to reform the law peacefully.” William Wilberforce would have had an even tougher time getting rid of slavery facing a totalitarian regime like Trudeau’s.

Andrew

There’s also the issue of men (not) getting a say. No, it is ‘not’ the ’women’s body’. The child’s body is the child’s, and of the two ppl it took to create the child, one happens to be the carrier. If women were decent human beings, instead of spoiled children, they’d offer this to men whether it’s law or not.

In Sweden they’re considering that men can “legally abort” the child. Hey, why not?

Andrew.

What it really comes down to is when does life begin, because if the fetus is deemed a person, abortion is murder. Your ilk think it starts with the first breath, Christians believe it’s at conception.

I can tell you this much, it starts long before their first breath. I want you to try this at home. When a child is 3, they’re young enough to remember being in the womb, and old enough to express their views on it. I’ve done this a dozen times – they all remember, and, to my surprise – they all say “it’s too squishy!!” Try it, I dare you, I double dare you!!!
commented 2018-01-26 00:15:22 -0500
James. If people didn’t need religion, a guiding light, it wouldn’t exist. It’s hard to believe you can’t see that. Also, you anti-religious types need it too, you just call it by other names, like “global warming”. For decades I’ve often heard Lefty’s lamenting “consumerism”, dreaming “there must be more”. Yeah, there is – religion you idiots!!! (and this is coming from a non-religious fellow if that matters).

Troll, your bigoted post doesn’t deter people of faith. Your skepticism is yours, and, you will have a day of reckoning… I wish you well on that day!

The Trudeau Derangement syndrome is strong in this thread. Heh.

Tammie, I’m curious as to what, exactly, makes it unconstitutional. It’s not religious discrimination, because vocal pro-life beliefs are not indelibly linked to Christianity – many religious groups, even if grudgingly, accept that individual autonomy is more important than their own specific beliefs. It certainly doesn’t prevent anyone from practicing their religion.

You’d also have a hard time arguing unconstitutionality when you’re asking the government to subsidize advocacy for a position that was itself long ago deemed unconstitutional. Reproductive rights are a constitutional right (under “security of person”), and legal rulings are pretty clear on this – if there are conflicts between individual rights and organizational ones, the individual ones take priority. For example, there WILL be a challenge about religious care homes providing access to assisted death, probably sooner rather than later, and it will result in the homes being forced to provide access to services. Not a “war on Christianity” so much as an endorsement of individual rights.

This is strictly an atheist, Soros agenda and they are making sure that all Christian denominations, plus Jewish and Muslim are going to be affected by it. They’re hoping some of the Churches will cave.

Lorne is 110% correct, when he says the Attestation is the roots of communism which will only grow bigger. I think I’ll seek an injunction to stop it, rather than a Charter Challenge which would take way longer.
commented 2018-01-25 22:46:08 -0500
While listening to you and Lorne discuss another one of Justin’s attacks on Christians and democracy, etc, I had these lines of Scripture run through my consciousness…

“…And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.
And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads:
And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six…”

“…those people who are supposed to be on guard for our freedom…” you mention Ezra…that’d be the FIVE P’s wouldn’t it?
