I had also received another e-mail. This other e-mail was surprising to me. I thank my friends J & B, who are fellow Christians, who live very far away from me, in Ontario, and do work for God, in their ministry.
The e-mail I received, was one written/sent to them by THEREBELmedia. This was the first time I have seen e-mail in support of Christians by a group, here in Canada. Here is what it said:
Dear (sorry... I removed my friends name),
A Toronto bureaucrat has banned a Christian choir from performing in a public square, because their songs include the words “praise the Lord” and “there’s no God like Jehovah."
I wish I were kidding.
Voices of the Nations is a choir that has performed for five years in a row in Yonge & Dundas Square, in downtown Toronto. It’s a little bit like New York City’s Times Square, with concerts, buskers, demonstrations and events — everything from Hare Krishna chants to marijuana rallies to a permanent kiosk where Muslim men hand out Korans.
But when Voices of the Nations applied for a permit to sing Christian songs, they were turned down flat. And when they phoned Natalie Belman, the bureaucrat in charge of the city-owned property, the reason she gave them was shocking: they were banned because they were Christian.
Well, here we go again.
Just last year, a Christian pastor named Rev. David Lynn was charged by police with illegal “busking”, for singing Christian songs at Yonge & Dundas Square — not 50 feet from the Muslim Koran kiosk. We helped recruit a civil liberties lawyer to fight Rev. Lynn’s case, and we won.
Well, the anti-Christian censors are back. They’re not just going after Rev. Lynn — but a whole choir. Even though that choir has performed there for five years in a row.
Click here to watch my video on this outrageous censorship — including to listen to an audio recording of the phone call with Natalie Belman. You will be shocked.
We’ve got to do three things.
1. We’ve got to let people know that anti-Christian bigotry is alive and kicking in Toronto — and that it’s completely unashamed. Seriously — can you believe that bureaucrat didn’t even hesitate to say exactly why she was banning the choir? So, step one is: spread the word, by forwarding this e-mail, or asking people to visit our website at www.AntiChristian.ca.
2. We’ve got to get thousands of people to sign our petition to Natalie Belman, to tell her that anti-Christian bigotry is no better than anti-Jewish or anti-Black bigotry. Please click here to sign our petition.
3. And Voices of the Nations has hired a great civil liberties lawyer — our friend John Carpay, from the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms. I spoke with John today about his legal strategy. Click here to watch that video — and to join me in chipping in to his legal defence fund.
I have personally pledged $100 to help cover John’s legal expenses.
Will you help too?
Will you help level the playing field for Voices of the Nations, and help defend their freedom of speech and freedom of religion?
If we roll over, and let the bureaucracy crush this choir, it will confirm in the minds of Toronto politicians and bureaucrats that they can discriminate against Christians with impunity.
But if we win – if we help John fight the good fight, to make arguments about religion freedom and freedom of speech – then we set a different sort of precedent. A precedent for liberty. Literally, a precedent to allow Christians in the town square.
It will be a win for Voices of the Nations. But also for every other Christian in Toronto. And it will be a lesson to Toronto bureaucrats.
And hopefully, that legal precedent would be seen and heard in other Canadian cities, too. That’s how it works – one court ruling at a time.
What do you think? Will you help me, to help John to help the choir?
Thank you again for standing up for Canada.
P.S: Please sign the petition here and forward it to 5 friends — and post the website www.AntiChristian.ca
What I've said in the past about how we Christians are losing our ability to be heard, is true. It's happening.
Our freedom is ending... slowly. Bit by bit, it is dwindling.
Yet, here in Canada, Islam is gaining more and more. Some schools don't just allow prayer time, but in some places, Muslims have complained and obtained through our court system that they be allowed to have washrooms changed so that Muslims can wash their feet.
This is happening? Even though God and prayer was removed from schools about 50 years ago?
There is more and more happening that is changing our freedom, here in Canada.
In my opinion, it will just continue to get worse and worse.
Because, Islam is doing exactly what I've said in the past. They are doing anything they can, to change our lifestyle here in Canada.
For some reason, they are benefitting by complaining about them needing more and more rights. And, are winning.
They are winning, while we infidels (non-Muslim people), including us Christians are losing, over and over again.
Thinking about what is happening, reminds me of 1 Peter 5:8, "Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:"
Yes, I am sober... clearheaded. I am vigilant by keeping watch for possible danger or difficulties.
I believe this is why I can see truth in our society's lifestyle. I can see that our adversary, the devil, walketh about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Please know that even though our lives are being changed, I am trusting in God. For He is my Father. Jesus is my Saviour. And, the Holy Spirit, guides me... and reveals truth to me.
For this, I will always be thankful.
Thank You, God! Thank You, Jesus! Thank You, Holy Spirit!
Until next time...
