Ontario Considers Legislation Criminalizing Public Displays of Faith for Christians

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 one’s 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 Queen’s Park Act, 2019,” is part of Canada’s 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:

“The problem with this bill, however, lies in the fact that the definition of “hate” is uncertain under Canadian law. As a result, unfortunately, the use of the word “hate” can be a useful tool for some to prevent differing views from being expressed. That is, the word “hate” can be used to silence opposing views expressed when, in fact, the views are simply a reasonable expression of belief.

This concern is based on actual experience. Canadians have already experienced the contempt shown by the Supreme Court of Canada towards Section 2 of the Charter of Rights which provides for freedom of opinion, expression and religion. In the Trinity Western Christian University case (2018), a private Christian university’s moral covenant was deemed hateful and discriminating. In the Bill Whatcott case (2013), the Supreme Court of Canada concluded that the effects of an expression used, not the communicator’s intent, are what is relevant. The court went on to conclude that “truthful statements and sincerely held beliefs do not affect the finding of “hate”. Mr. Whatcott merely expressed in his pamphlet the well-established facts about homosexuality which the court held to be “hateful”. It is worth noting that the Saskatchewan Court of Appeal, presumably consisting of equally learned judges, had previously concluded that the pamphlet was not hateful. The Supreme Court of Canada prides itself on being a “progressive” court and has an established bias as evidenced in a series of decisions that have struck down laws based on traditional values. There is little likelihood that the court will protect tradition-based groups if they are denied the right to demonstrate at the provincial legislature.

Canada has been opening the door for Islam and the LGBT agenda to take control of their culture for some time now

Just last month, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) issued a commemorative coin to celebrate homosexuality.  Marie Lemay, president and CEO of the RCM, said, “Marking 50 years since a landmark decision that began a process of legal reforms to recognize the rights of the LGBTQ2 Canadians is a powerful way to recognize Canada’s profound belief in equality and inclusion.”

Meanwhile, the inevitable aim seems to be the exclusion of Christianity from their culture and society.  

Romans 1:22 tells us some truth about those living for themselves in these wicked times: “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.”  How true is that? In their worldly wisdom, they see it as a good thing to protect Muslims and the LGBT left by discriminating against Christians, even going as far as to criminalize their public display of faith.

This is just the tip of the iceberg for Canada as their government continues to rapidly conform to globalism and liberalism.
