Catherine McCatechism? McKenna co-opts Lent to push pagan climate change agenda

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Canada's Environment Minister, Catherine McKenna, co-opted a Christian holy day to push her pagan climate change agenda.

In a video she filmed while showing off her Shrove Tuesday meal of pancakes at an Ontario University, McKenna mentioned her meeting with the Pope a few years back to lend legitimacy to her Lenten sacrifice. She said she was “giving it up for climate change.”

What “it” is remains to be explained. It was catechism, McKenna style. And it was dead wrong.

Next time McKenna has the opportunity to meet with the Pope, she should ask for a quick refresher on the meaning of Lent. Billions of Christians around the world, myself included, regard these next 40 days as a baptismal season, a season of contrition and preparation.

Christians use Lent as a time of self-sacrifice to bring ourselves closer to the suffering of Christ. It's not about McKenna’s neo-pagan, climate change doomsday cult agenda of higher taxes on struggling Canadian families.

Who in their right mind thinks that way?

McKenna’s complete and total ignorance of the holy day aside, do you think that she would co-opt a Muslim holy day, completely misunderstand the concept behind it, and then use it to make an awkward video to push a political, pro carbon tax agenda?

Not in a million years. Even she’s not that dumb. The Liberals would consider that offensive. But Christianity is fair game.

Today I'll show you what McKenna said, why I think she is an ignorant hypocrite and why I think even her own staff must deeply dislike her.

McKenna’s Lent message missed the mark, not just because of the gross agenda she inserted into it, but also due to the public nature of the pronouncement of her Lenten sacrifice.

The Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 6 verse 2 gives everyone, even secular types, some solid life advice about how to go about doing charity and good works:

“When therefore you give alms, do not sound the trumpet before you, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may be honored by men.”

I can't wait to pull Catherine McKenna's travel expenses for the coming 40 days just to see how much she really did give it up for climate change this Lent.

Climate Barbie should give up her job and give us all a break!

“No it doesn’t. The isotopic ratios are completely different and it’s usually got different ratios of metals in it whereas atmospheric deposits don’t, so they can attribute how much each source contributed pretty easily (e.g, iridium is almost non-existent in terrestrial dust but common in space-dust. That’s how they determined the dinosaurs were killed by a meteor) They know how much space-dust is in the antarctic ice – it’s a favourite place to go hunting for it.”

So smearing that soot as a cross on your forehead would make it holier than wood ash?

HIGH FLIGHT

Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I’ve climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth
Of sun-split clouds, -and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of —Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov’ring there
I’ve chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft through footless halls of air…
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace
Where never lark or even eagle flew -

And, while with silent lifting mind I’ve trod
The high untrespassed sanctity of space,
Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

“Charred Remains commented 3 hours ago
Andrew… I almost believe that your last statement is actually yours with no cut and paste..”

You keep making that accusation, but providing no supporting evidence. If it’s cut and paste, you must know what the original source is to know it is. Otherwise, what are you comparing to to make that determination?

“That’s right, stardust is not little diamonds like the grit on sandpaper, it is more like soot you would scrape off of a barbeque grill. Which casts doubt on all discovery of hydrocarbon “pollution” found inplaces like Arctic glaciers. "

No it doesn’t.

“All the days of the earth, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, night and day, shall not cease. Genesis 8:22
They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator, who is forever worthy of praise! Amen. Romans 1:25
Climate Change is their religion. They now refer to it as a “moral” crisis as oppose to a Scientific one! Moral taken from Religious terminology!“

Excellent quote speaking to the word of our Lord speaking to his creation..
What’s happening now is what happens when we stray from the eternal wisdom of our Creator and thinking that an inclusive anything goes human created society is better than living by the word of god… That’s why we are in all this trouble and it begins like this… “Open the door for one reprobate and eventually you must open the door for all of them to be inclusive”.
I hope when Alberta separates what we remember is the most fundamental law is that of living by the laws of our Creator.!!

Something I learned recently is that there is a common misconception (one of many) about outer space. It is not pristine or pure. When astronauts come in through the air lock it smells like “a barbecue at a NASCAR rally”.

At first this was thought to be pollution from earth’s atmosphere, but it turned out to be…in the words of Joni Mitchell..“stardust, billion year old carbon”

That’s right, stardust is not little diamonds like the grit on sandpaper, it is more like soot you would scrape off of a barbeque grill. Which casts doubt on all discovery of hydrocarbon “pollution” found inplaces like Arctic glaciers.

Did anyone happen to notice (as I did) that this is one of a very few “man” expressions that feminists let slide? There is a reason for that…you see the evil Penisoids from Mars came here to gang rape GAIA…the man hating Earth Goddess of the vestal virgins from Venus…and yes indeed this is a pagan religion revival….I have attended and seen their rituals with my own eyes (they assumed I was a kindred spirit).

No worries. If she is looking for things to give up….look no further than flying around the world especially to attend climate change conferences. In fact, if you think about how much poison is being spewed into our atmosphere to assemble a collection of the most hypocritical, pompous, self entitled climate change fanatics, we need to pass a law now to ban climate change conferences…..it will turn our 12 years into only 2 years if we allow this madness to continue.

Thanks. I see you joined Laura Ingraham and Raymond Arroyo in expressing your faith in public. God love you

Climate Barbie has gone off message. Green energy isn’t about sacrifice! Why, we can have a green planet AND greater prosperity, too! Isn’t that her line? – that we can green ourselves to happiness? Just think of all of those good, high-paying jobs in the renewable energy sector that Climate Barbie keeps promising the displaced resource-extraction workers in the West. No sacrifice needed to do the right thing.

Matthew 6:3 “But when you give alms, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing”. Guess she doesn’t know her right from her left! Totally out in the open while she speaks out of both sides of her mouth

Lent has no place at all in the public service. Canadians don’t want this Jesus nonsense crammed down our throats. We’re a secular society.

Sorry…I did not mention that CBC DISABLED THE COMMENT

Here is a comment I made on the CBC web site about Butts/Wilson-Raybould
" So….who had the most to gain by lying?? I would believe Wilson-Raybould any day not only because she is telling it the way it is, but because she has credibility, which is in short supply in the Liberal Party"
I am so pissed that the CBC is getting away with this censorship. I previously suggested to Ezra that he run a parallel comments section to the CBC so people can actually say what they want. So far, not even a response from Ezra!! Meanwhile, CBC spreading their fake news!!

Man made global warming is a hoax. It is no coincidence that every socialist and every socialist government is firmly on the MMGW bandwagon. They view MMGW as a tool to advance their socialist hegemony over the planet and as a way to control every person living on it.
Man made global warming is a hoax. And the more obvious that truth becomes the more shrill the warmists shriek. Like cult members, they preach their truth and that, of course, is why warmists will accept no disagreement with their catechism.

Shrug. It’s called embracing all things green, beautiful, and socialist. And she’s not doing anything that our commie churches – led by the UCC – aren’t doing themselves.

Well Sheila Gunn-Reid, I for one appreciated the sign of the cross you carried into the world and the reading from the Gospels.
Thank you.

What?? is she giving up?
Don’t tell me the Liberals are now trying to get the Catholic vote?
Imagine this Catholic liberal McKenna practicing her religion and telling the world. She doesn’t know how to or what she’s suppose to practice, but she’s showing how ‘spiritual’ she is.
There will be those who fall for it, I’m afraid.
Notice she didn’t do this tweet today with any ashes on her head.

McKenna is the simple minded Barbie girl that Junior figured all his women appointments to cabinet would be. Then W-R and Philpott demonstrated otherwise and showed accomplished women with integrity are ‘persons’ too.

Wait…wasn’t that decided a century ago, under a Conservative government? Maybe that is why the Kokanee Groper does not recognize the fact, it was Conservative legislation.

After watching Climate Barbie’s performance at that rally the other day I would have to say that she missed her calling as an evangelist. Kudos to her acting coach. (Justin?)

What is she giving up for lent? Her sheshe brunches? Gawd, I hope those 6 peas and two, I don’t know what’s on her plate are an appetizer.
Climate change is beyond your control Mckenna! What you paid for that ‘feed’ is within it.

Leftists are neo-Canaanites. Hence their penchant for child sacrifice a la Molech. And their attempts to control the weather. Like the Canaanites they have essentially combined the two – kill the child as a sacrifice to prevent weather extremes caused by too many humans.

Katherine McKenna should coopt Ramadan. For the entire month, she should use no electricity or water, not even to flush the toilet, during daylight hours. Toilets use so much water which pagans like her figure never gets cleaned by filtration in the ground. I’d love to see thousands of offended Muslims converge on Parliament Hill to demand her head. After all, we christians turn the other cheek while Muslims tolerate no cheek about their faith.
