Canada won’t fund student summer jobs unless employers support abortion LGBTBBQ rights

OTTAWA, December 14, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn't first sign an “attestation” that they agree with abortion and transgender "rights."
The new criteria were sent to all MPs and will be made public when the Canada Summer Jobs Program officially opens December 19, 2017.

In order to receive federal Canada job grants, employers must attest that:
  • both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights. These include reproductive rights and the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.

What a tangled web, as if the "funding" for employment of legal adults is somehow ultimately the responsibility of the taxpayer. Take the secular coin, play the secular tune.

I have trouble understanding this view of the State as some endless cornucopia which just needs the right, good-intentioned people in charge to direct the flow of goodies. I have even more trouble understanding why Christians swallow it.

Your point is well taken. I will go even further, and urge all churches to not only refuse government funding, but to arrange their affairs in such a way that they can survive financially, if their tax-exempt status is removed. That is what I have advised my own Parish Council for years.

However, if every church did this, the persecution will NOT stop there. The next step will be to sue or arrest recalcitrant Christians on phoney-baloney, trumped up "civil rights" charges (i.e., refusing to bake a cake is equivalent to Jim Crow lynchings, etc.). If THAT doesn't work, then we will ultimately see Soviet-style persecutions in the U.S.

The plutocratic donor class in the U.S. (what George Carlin referred to as "the OWNERS of this country") has made it crystal clear that they regard Christianity as an abomination which must be expunged.

Unfortunately, I think there is a chance that they might actually succeed. After all, there are places in this world which were once solidly Christian, where Christianity has completely disappeared. North Africa and Central Asia are two of those places.

I strongly suspect that Christianity, north of the Rio Grande, will essentially disappear in the next century of so. After all, the Founding Fathers of the U.S. were Deists, not Christians. If you read their writings, not one of them could recite the Nicene or Apostles' Creeds with a straight face. Besides, when you look at all of the religious movements since the beginning of the Republic, which have had their origins on American soil, you will find that they are more Gnostic than Christian. E.g., Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Seventh Day Adventists, Christian Science, and the list goes on.

Thus, I think that Christianity could possibly be expunged from British North America as effectively as it was in Tokugawa Japan. If you and I are not ultimately given a fumi-eto trample upon, future generations will be.

Rod Dreher is right about this. Sorry, folks!
