    Makes one wonder where we will be in 20 years.

    While Americans are fixated on President Trump and his administration, watching everything he does and says, one issue that many Americans don’t pay much attention to, is religious liberty and what it means to Americans.

    How often Americans pay attention to events or news stories in other nations is unknown, but when it comes to Canada, Americans may watch an occasional sporting event, but what many haven't paid attention to, is the erosion of religious liberty in Canada and the question is, is America next?

    Emilie Kao of the Daily Signal reported on Thursday (Dec. 28) that Canadians are facing the dilemma of religious liberty discrimination.

    Although the nation was founded on the indication of religious pluralism, which in Quebec, Canada, Catholics were once allowed to engage their faith without inference, now seems to not matter anymore as we head into 2018.

    I doubt we are next. Of course you will always have totalitarian states like New York and California and Illinois etc that pass illegal state laws but it eventually works its way to the SC and gets overturned especially once Kennedy retires or dies and Ginsburg dies.

    Blind or dumb which is it?
    In November, Christian parents in Alberta, Canada were barred from attempting to adopt a child. Why? According to the government, their Christian views about sexuality were not compatible with the Alberta government’s so-called “bureaucrat position” in which the government asserted that the Christian couple’s Christian beliefs that having an intimate relationship are not allowed until that person is married, did not create a protected, beneficial, loving, and inclusive home.

    Then in June, Ontario enacted a law, (once again, government intervention) that will allow state agencies to use their authority to block religious liberty minded-families from adopting or even foster any child if the parents refused to encourage the child from switching their gender individuality.


    If the parents refused to allow their child to do that, then as far as the government of Ontario is concerned, that denial equates to, yes you guessed it, “child abuse.”

    Christians aren’t bring oppressed in Canada. It’s the religious wing whack jobs who aren’t being allowed to adopt that are crying discrimination.

    If your beliefs make you hate certain sections of society then you should be excluded from that society.

    Christian conservatives are trying hard to make their beliefs law. They are the number one threat to free religion in the United States.

    The so-called Christians who profess hatred of gays are not being allowed to adopt. This is an infringement of their religious freedom.
