Would Muslims be banned from saying "Mohammed"? Toronto told Voices of the Nations not to sing about Jesus

David MenziesMission Specialist

For years the non-profit, Christian group Voices of the Nations staged events at Toronto’s Yonge and Dundas Square.

Recently though, a city bureaucrat decreed that this group will not be allowed to continue holding events starting next year yet, other faith groups continue to hold events in the square.

Yesterday, hundreds of supporters, including Faith Goldy, held a rally to bring attention to this double standard and challenge city officials to reverse this decision.

Those of us that grew up in the fifties might remember the little jingle that I’ve updated to todays political climate:
“Muslims Muslims ring the bell, Christians ,Christians go to hell”. Our recently elected politicians at all levels are bending over backwards to accomodate their newest minority group to save , totally ignoring the fact that there are around one and a half billion Muslims on the planet. That isn’t a minority in my mind.
We are quickly finding out that “political correctness” is just a thin disguise for suppression of thought , suppression of free speech and freedom of expression. And of course if a group of Muslim woman adorned in Niquabs were chanting on the street , they would receive the full protection of the Ontario Political Police and plaudits from the Toronto Star ,declaring what a wonderful inclusive multicultural society we are. But pointing out the duplicitious thought process of liberals (socialists) and liberal (socialist) politicians is a waste of time.
People, we need to wake up. We need to start exercizing our right to free speech, any speech because that is what this country is all about. It isn’t about Wynne and Trudeau and Tory telling us what we can say and do and think. Telling us what our values are. And by the way Trudeau , just where do you think the Canadian values you talk about come from???? OUR CANADIAN Values are based on guess what , JUDEO CHRISTIAN VALUES, not of the values contained in the you know what book that the muslims follow.

Hi Dave,
I noticed a discrepancy in your “reporting” here. You point out that “other faith groups” are still welcome “at the square” but you show a (muslim?) man sitting at a table that is not at the square. Is this what your whole argument about other groups being tolerated is based on? Surely you must have some evidence that another religious group actually had an event AT THE SQUARE, right? Or… are you guys being dishonest?

The unfortunate truth is, a lot of awful people have identified themselves as christians. When I think christian, I think of some child molesting priest or non, or of some mega church pastor telling the church goers to tithe. As long as christians keep holding on to their belief of their self righteousness as opposed to purging themselves of the bad, you christians will keep getting treated as a bunch of sexually abusing money sucking rule imposers.

And has it ever occured to any of you that you might be wrong in your beliefs? That maybe another religion could be right? Or that you are wasting all your energy and money on a god that does not exist?

I take more seriously the elephant head god Ganesh than jesus.

Thanks for this report, David. It seems that tolerance and diversity end in Wynne’s Ontario where Christianity begins. The Liberals clearly regard Christians as the enemy of their new socialist Utopia. Wait till they see what replaces it.

But until then, Christians need to stand up for their rights under the Constitution and Charter of Rights of Canada. Make the hypocrites know that they will not get away with persecuting Christians or any other group they don’t like. Ever.

The only reason for Tory’s duplicity on this issue is the fact that he is a coward. No matter what Sam Young says Christians are peaceful, open and accepting, while too many Muslims are willing to go to any lengths to achieve their misogynistic goals. Before you pull out your swords, notice I said too many, not all.

Kelly, so do the other groups – so what’s your point?

We have Freedoms and Rights and can say and do anything that we want and we’re not going to give them up to appease anyone 😊 ❤️

Kelly Weber – God’s people are the church, not the building structures.

Isn’t that why we have churches?

Sam Young – so you sit in judgment, and as you judge, you will be measured by the same judgment, that you have imposed on those you know nothing about. Christians are the salt of the earth, and once the saltiness has been taken out of this world, then the depths of mans evil nature will be revealed.

Oh really Sam Young? You have it coming, when Christ shows up. Oh happy day ;)

Christians had it coming, especially after all the crap they have pulled.

Glad Toronto will be getting the first sharia patrols, they seem to be deserving of it. Hopefully only the useful idiots get beaten and attacked.

Judy, thank you for that. Amen.

I would not be surprised at all if there is someone who has issued a complaint against Christians from an opposing ideology or belief system or non-belief system.

No doubt, The Toronto City Hall is a Rats Nest of Politically Correct Liberal Wing Nuts. Kissing Muslim Butt. Scared of being called Islamophobic, a word coined by the Muslims.

David, if we really want to get some action on this front, I would suggest enlisting that Goliath of a fighter for diversity, none other than, Chrystia Freeland, Canada’s Minister for International Trade, who in that exchange with Bill Maher, extolled the virtues of “diversity”, saying, "I think it is incredibly important, particularly now after the Paris attacks…to stand up for real diversity and say that our diversity is our strength.”

" And I saw heaven opened , and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war .His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written , that no man knew , but he himself. And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God. And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword, that with it he should smite the nations: and he shall rule them with a rod of iron: and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name written , KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS. Rev. 19:8-16

“… Christ Jesus: Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: But made himself of no reputation , and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow , of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; " Phil 2:5-10
