Same-Sex Marriage Ten Years On: Lessons from Canada

This summer the United States Supreme Court is going to make all of us except the perverted idea that homosexuals can marry. what is that going to mean to the real Christian, the true Christian? All we have to do to know the answer to that is look north. Homosexual marriage has been legal in Canada for over 10 years. What’s happening there? This article tells us.

This article is very long. I have only quoted part of it. It is worth reading the entire article.

A Warning from Canada: Same-Sex Marriage Erodes Fundamental Rights

http://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2015/04/14899/

From this article:

I am one of six adult children of gay parents who recently filed amicus briefs with the US Supreme Court, asking the Court to respect the authority of citizens to keep the original definition of marriage: a union between one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others, so that children may know and may be raised by their biological parents.

I also live in Canada, where same-sex marriage was federally mandated in 2005.

I want to warn America to expect severe erosion of First Amendment freedoms if the US Supreme Court mandates same-sex marriage.  The consequences have played out in Canada for ten years now, and they are truly Orwellian in nature and scope.

Canada’s Lessons

In Canada, freedoms of speech, press, religion, and association have suffered greatly due to government pressure. The debate over same-sex marriage that is taking place in the United States could not legally exist in Canada today. Because of legal restrictions on speech, if you say or write anything considered “homophobic” (including, by definition, anything questioning same-sex marriage), you could face discipline, termination of employment, or prosecution by the government.”

Hate Tribunals Are Coming

“In Canada, it is considered discriminatory to say that marriage is between a man and a woman or that every child should know and be raised by his or her biological married parents. It is not just politically incorrect in Canada to say so; you can be saddled with tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees, fined, and forced to take sensitivity training.”

“Anyone who is offended by something you have said or written can make a complaint to the Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals. In Canada, these organizations police speech, penalizing citizens for any expression deemed in opposition to particular sexual behaviors or protected groups identified under “sexual orientation.” It takes only one complaint against a person to be brought before the tribunal, costing the defendant tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. The commissions have the power to enter private residences and remove all items pertinent to their investigations, checking for hate speech.”

“The plaintiff making the complaint has his legal fees completely paid for by the government. Not so the defendant. Even if the defendant is found innocent, he cannot recover his legal costs. If he is found guilty, he must pay fines to the person(s) who brought forth the complaint.”

“If your beliefs, values, and political opinions are different from the state’s, you risk losing your professional license, job, or business, and even your children. Look no further than the Lev Tahor Sect, an Orthodox Jewish sect. Many members, who had been involved in a bitter custody battle with child protection services, began leaving Chatham, Ontario, for Guatemala in March 2014, to escape prosecution for their religious faith, which conflicted with the Province’s guidelines for religious education. Of the two hundred sect members, only half a dozen families remain in Chatham.”

“Parents can expect state interference when it comes to moral values, parenting, and education—and not just in school. The state has access into your home to supervise you as the parent, to judge your suitability. And if the state doesn’t like what you are teaching your children, the state will attempt to remove them from your home.”

“Teachers cannot make comments in their social networks, write letters to editors, publicly debate, or vote according to their own conscience on their own time. They can be disciplined or lose any chance of tenure. They can be required at a bureaucrat’s whim to take re-education classes or sensitivity training, or be fired for thinking politically incorrect thoughts.”

“When same-sex marriage was created in Canada, gender-neutral language became legally mandated.”

People are going to say that there are Christians who do not believe that homosexuality is a sin. People will point out that there are Christians who think that homosexuals up to be allowed to

People think that homosexuality is not a sin and that homosexuals should be allowed to marry are not Christians. they may be many other things. They may be churchgoers. They may call themselves Christians. They are not Christians.

But those kinds of people are indeed going to be very useful in these last days of the last days.

Those of you who are true Christians, be prepared to stand. Keep in mind, it is going to look like we have lost the war. That is not the truth. We are going to lose a few battles in this life, but we have already won the war.
