NL schools cancel Operation Christmas Child, call Samaritan's Purse “homophobic”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Newfoundland and Labrador schools will no longer be participating in Operation Christmas Child’s shoe box program because they think Samaritan's Purse is a homophobic organization.

Operation Christmas Child is a project of the non-denominational Christian charity, Samaritan's Purse, headed by Franklin Graham, son of "America's Pastor" Billy Graham. As far as Christian charities go, it’s as mainstream as it gets.

Schools and churches fill shoe boxes with hygiene items, school supplies, small toys and books.

These shoe boxes are then sent to children in need — in the developing world, in war-torn countries, and in places stricken by hunger, disease and famine.

The shoe boxes are given to children regardless of gender, race or religion.

But in spite of all that good work, the Newfoundland and Labrador English School Division recently terminated their participation in Operation Christmas Child because Samaritan's Purse is an avowed Christian organization.

The activist decision-makers at the NL English School District can't put aside their own discomfort and bigotry about Evangelical Christians to ease the suffering of a poor child, if only just for a day.

This is so sad. SJWs are the beginning of the demise of Western society and Western common sense. They are so disconnected from reality. They should, one day, be in a situation that these poor children are in, and then wish for some stranger to offer them some sunlight in their sorry state of existence.

This group is doing good. They are not preaching, pushing a philosophy, or trying to do more than give some happiness to children they don’t even know. Seriously, the NL English Language School Board are idiotic jerks, and that is putting it mildly. Horse’s ass is a more apt description.

In the West there have been so many cases of the left acting so far out of sanity and reason as to seem ridiculous and unbelievable…but of late these cases have been moving into the extremes of persecution and prosecution of specifically Christian and conservative minded people – and perpetrated by organs of THE STATE, as your videos so clearly show, SHEILA GUNN REID.
The left have been acting out a lot of weird, sick stuff, and trying to force it on the rest of us and they’ve stepped it up, and they are protected by the Fake News Liars (FNLs). The FIVE P conspirators are all in on it and I’m just waiting for that 4:00 am ‘visit’ from the state’s jackbooted thugs…
I feel absolutely powerless to do anything whatsoever about the treasonous swine responsible for herding us like sheep on this headlong crash into global fascism and its consequent destruction of my country, heritage, history, and community.
Someone just go ahead and start that revolution!

This is an attack on Christianity! Teaching children to be loving, kind and giving, and to help others in need, are Christian teachings. Watch as society crumbles into chaos under the damned.

I always had tremendous respect for Reverend Graham and his son is a force of good against the evils our society is facing.
I’m going to put a few boxes together today as an in your face answer to these loathsome so called educators.
My pro-activism is starting to cost money lol. I sent a Christmas Barbie Doll to you know who and she never even sent a thank you note back.

Our relationship with the overall gay community as Christians would greatly improve if we stopped throwing gays off rooftops .

Great report as usual Shiela. There has to be a complaint filed against these imbeciles for blasphemy of a religious faith with hate speech who are just trying to help the less fortunate.. After all isn’t that what M103 is all about? To slander Christians as homophobic or bigoted because we do not agree that such a lifestyle is not appropriate or preferable is pure bigotry itself, as you have alluded to. I truly hope that someone sensible files a complaint with the proper authorities in that region. Eastern Canada seems to be spiraling more and more into a third world shithole every day. Sickening.

- They find Christians to be “homophobic”. Now if Christians were to start pitching homosexuals off the top of buildings & stone them to death if they live, it might be a different story. After all, you never hear of these politically correct bigots shutting down Muslim bakeries for not making wedding cakes for their same sex marriages.

LGBTQ2 militants successfully put a stop to the shoe boxes given to children regardless of gender, race or religion; impoverished children who look forward to opening the box to see what another child from another part of the world has sent to say I care.
67 000 children have been excluded this year – Newfoundland and Labrador English School Division responsible for this exclusion. F***ing Grinches!!!!

Yea, all the inclusive gays from NL are so sensitive to the needs of poor, hungry orphans. Their sex life is more important………

Just one more example of a Marxists run educational system.

The regressive socialist creed:

“Never let charity or compassion stand in the way of ideology.”

This is just so outrageous…no words at the moment.

… Schools are run by PS unions. Unions are based upon Marxist principles, and thus opposed to Christianity.
… One crucial difference between Marxism and Christianity is that Marxists advocate the role of the state for charity- the state forcing earnings and property from one citizen to another. Christianity is about inspiring true charity- freely sharing one’s earnings and property with the less fortunate.
… Thus, PS unions attempt to destroy any signs of true Christian charity.

Not to worry, they will stand before God one day, and be held accountable.

On display. The true convictions of the left!

What really gets me though is the fact that these boards are made up of Parents who send their children to the schools that are governed by these bigots.
Where are the parents voicing their discontent about this decision. School boards are not dictatorships, although they think they are. Parents can and have made them change asinine decisions in the past.

I should have proof read my comment below, as it should have read “B I G O T S”, with a single “T”. Sorry about that.

Mette Reed none of these SJW clowns gives a damn about anyone else, it is all about them and their self importance. And of course they only virtue signal in certain directions, never will they call the Wahhabi’s
homophobic or crap on them in such a way. They are sad self absorbed people.

Left wing B I G O T T S !!
When will we ever be rid of these worthless idiots??

These schools obviously don’t really care about children, they are more concerned with Political Correctness. Political Correctness and LGBT rights top the list, all other rights are secondary. Yes, it’s okay to discriminate against Christians. Even more embarrassed to call myself a Canadian after this story. Just shameful! I’m packing 2 boxes next year also, Sheila. As a matter of fact, I think I’ll make another donation to Samaritans purse this month.
