Skip to comments.Ontario Considers Legislation Criminalizing Public Displays of Faith for Christians
Posted on 05/22/2019 7:56:21 PM PDT by Tolerance Sucks Rocks
The nation of Canada has been giving us a chilling vision of what it looks like when a western nation completely succumbs to the dangerous ideology of multiculturalism, the cultural Marxism that always inevitably restricts the rights of some to pave the way for the rights of others.
There is no equality in multiculturalism.
Christians have faced increasing adversity in Canada as of late, but new proposed legislation that would make it a crime to publicly express ones faith is a chilling new low.
In the proposed legislation, it would become illegal for Christians to make any public displays which are deemed hateful to Muslims, LGBT people, and other victim groups as designated by the left. The bill has been dubbed Prohibiting Hate-Promoting Demonstrations at Queens Park Act, 2019, is part of Canadas anti-hate laws and would give the government complete freedom to ban all things Christian.
This would mean any Christian protests or demonstrations could potentially be criminalized. Public prayer vigils could be outlawed.
How is this even being considered in a modern, Western nation?!
Life Site News explains how vague the new bill is and how dangerous it is for Christians in Canada:

All these Canadian idiot celebrities, like Jim Carrey and Samantha Bee, why don’t they just go back to Canada, it sounds like the perfect place for them.
The US Democrat party is fast becoming America’s largest hate group. I can only assume that Canada’s Liberal party is doing much the same thing.
Burn them to the ground and import them from the US!
Soon to come to the USA. Tolerance for evil, no tolerance for good.
Multicurturalism = anti white, Christian, Western Civilization. Funny how multicurturalism is only a goal in white countries. If a large group of whites were to move to a brown or black country the multicural lovers would be the first to scream about displacing the non whites. Hypocrites.
No mention of how the koran instructs muslims to kill all nonbelievers? Is that intolerance?
Christ is coming for his bride. Woe to those left behind.
Hey Canada- nations have fallen for being Godless- sure ya wanna go there?
and btw canada- aren’t you being hateful towards Christians by banning them from freely expressing their religion which you claim is hateful? Also- it isn’t hateful to try to warn people to AVOID ETERNITY IN HELL by getting right with God! That is an act of supreme love- NOT hate-
A bit of background might surprise you on this.
The legislation was motivated by past demonstrations against Israel and Zionism, and in favour of Palestine. The proposed legislation is from a government member (opposition members can also bring private members’ bills) in the Ontario Conservative government.
Clearly some leftists have jumped on the bandwagon because they can use this legislation, if passed into law, to harass various conservative groups demonstrating (Queen’s Park is the location of the Ontario Legislature, the bill proposes to ban demonstrations on the grounds of the legislature rather than everywhere in Ontario).
I think this is an ill-considered action by a legislator eager to score points with his local voters (in a predominantly Jewish north Toronto riding). It’s not clear to me that he actually considered the wider context, perhaps he did, perhaps not.
Also, it’s only on a very small piece of land that is by no means the most likely place for political demonstrations of any kind to take place in Toronto. But of course it’s the principle of the thing.
It might be a good example of unintended consequences. The current Ontario government is well to the political right of the previous one or the Ottawa federal government. I am surprised the premier of Ontario, Doug Ford, allowed this private member’s bill (he would have had an opportunity to tell his back-bench MPP to reconsider it). Anyway, it’s just before a committee after a first reading, it has to survive two more rounds of debate in the House to become an actual law. Then there would inevitably be constitutional challenges. I don’t see much chance of this bill, worded as it is now, passing into law or if it does, remaining valid law for very long.
The original hate literature, with over 109 parables about death to the infidel.
No more Christmas lights on the house, garage and driveway?
Just have them out all year. Then they’ll just think that you’re a redneck.
Thanks for the info. We have problem politicians like that down here. We call them RINOs (Republicans in Name Only).
Time to break off diplomatic relations with Canada!
Pointing that out could soon be a hate crime in Canada. Soon to come to the USA.
Why Canada is so ignorant of God. This is its history:
Denomination Population, 1951 census % of total
Roman Catholic 6,069,496 43.3%
United Church 2,867,271 20.5%
Anglican 2,060,720 14.7%
Presbyterian 781,747 5.6%
Baptist 519,585 3.7%
Lutheran 444,923 3.2%
Jewish 204,836 1.5%
Ukrainian (Greek) Catholic 190,831 1.4%
Greek Orthodox 172,271 1.2%
Mennonite 125,938 0.9%
Pentecostal 95,131 0.7%
Salvation Army 70,275 0.5%
Evangelical 50,900 0.4%
Jehovah’s Witnesses 34,596 0.2%
Mormon 32,888 0.2%
No religion 59,679 0.4%
Other/not recorded 260,625 1.9%
“Christmas lights” are pagan nonsense anyway.
It is Yeshua that they are trying to outlaw.
Please explain what a 70 year old census showing over 90% Judeo-Christian residents has to do with today?
I doubt the differences between our nations have altered near as much as the utterly irrelevant stats you posted.
