Christianity Under Attack In Canada As Priest Is Investigated Under Federal 'Hate Crime' Law For Quoting From The BibleTopics: Faith
A priest is being investigated as a potential criminal under a federal "hate crimes" law for quoting from the Bible, and he's being targeted using a Canadian provision under which no defendant ever has been acquitted. Father Alphonse de Valk, a pro-life activist known across Canada, is being prosecuted by the Canadian Human Rights Commission - "a quasi-judicial investigative body with the power of the Canadian government behind it."
And what was Father de Valk's alleged 'hate act'?
[...] Father de Valk defended the Catholic Church's teaching on marriage during Canada's same-sex 'marriage' debate, quoting extensively from the Bible, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and Pope John Paul II's encyclicals: Each of these documents contains official Catholic teaching. And like millions of other people throughout the world and the ages - many of who are non-Catholics and non-Christians -- Father believes that marriage is an exclusive union between a man and a woman," he wrote.This is another case of courts acting in such a manner as to be so bizarre that it boggles the mind! As is noted in the WNT story, apparently Canada now considers morality a "hate crime" and Christian beliefs are evidence for convictions of a hate crime.
The new case comes just as columnist and author Mark Steyn, and Maclean's magazine which published an excerpt from his "America Alone" book, are on trial before the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal for similar "offenses." (More ...)
What's next - lions?
Canada is no longer a Christian nation, and watch out America - we're already moving in that direction.
