Canada. There are no human rights there anymore, thanks to the infamous Human Rights Commissions.

This is happening in Alberta, reportedly the least leftist province in Canada. It seems the entire Anglosphere is becoming the dominion of Satan and his minions among leftists and perverts.

Canada’s milice/Gestapo doing what government agents always do. Treat the peasants like dirt, enforce tyranny, just follow orders, drag the government’s critics away to prison, etc. the nature of government is to expand, oppress, and extort. Every government. There is never a limit to government greed for money and power driven by the power hungry sociopaths that make up the Democrat party and quite a few Republicans as well (think Romney).

As Christians we always knew that in the end times the church would endure persecution.

I had no idea that it would be in my life time and I'd have a front row seat.

That's OK though. Bring it on.

Not all of us will turn the other cheek.

"It seems the entire Anglosphere is becoming the dominion of Satan and his minions among leftists and perverts."

Rev 12, 9:
And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.

11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

12 Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Police have become a sort of private security service for globalists, a task which is not really in their mandate, oh did I say mandate? Well that’s ironic.

The pastor will not be alone, thousands and thousands more will agree with his point of view and if he faces any serious legal trouble they will come to his aid. As somebody said, (outside of Calgary, Edmonton and one or two other cities) Alberta is a very conservative province and led the way last year with the freedom convoy. If this happened in certain other parts of Canada this pastor would be without much nearby support although I’m sure people at a distance would try to assist.

I can’t see that freedom of speech or association laws can legitimately cover for an inappropriate act like these story times, even where parents don’t object. Some say, well parents who do object can keep their kids at home, which is partly true but you may not necessarily know in advance that such an event is about to take place at your kid’s school or the local library or community center where you might attend other programs.

What I would like to see is a movement to keep overt expressions of sexuality of any kind away from kids under the age of at least 14, maybe older. Especially when you’re talking about kids of a very tender age who have no defenses of any kind against adult duplicity. This is probably what the pastor in question believes too, and so if he has to go to court about this, I believe with good legal advice he can defend himself with our existing laws. Much is made of the fact that we don’t have a first amendment in Canada but really the laws are not very different and the recent problems have been more due to the legal climate shifting, you can write any laws you want but if judges and lawyers and politicians form alliances to interpret laws to suit an agenda, there’s no stopping it or perhaps the only place you might stop it would be at the final court of appeal (like in your country, the Supreme Court, except I’m not sure if this detail is the same, we also have Supreme Courts at provincial levels so the protocol is to appeal there first and if you lose the appeal you have the right to appeal at the federal court).

What a world, a freak show in every sense of the term.

"Police showed up at the home of Calgary Christian Pastor Derek Reimer this morning to tell him he would soon be arrested and charged because he protested a children’s drag queen story time at a public library over the weekend, saying “homosexuality is a sin.”

The real issue is 'sin,' making the arrest really about the Genesis account. It's about criminalizing the Genesis account:

Vassilis Tsiartas, one of the most legendary soccer players of his time received a ten month suspended jail sentence plus a suspended fine for posting “transphobic” social media messages citing the Bible’s creation account. (1) “God created Adam and Eve,” wrote retired Greek football legend Vassilis Tsiartas in the second of two Facebook posts opposing a law that would have lowered the age to legally change one’s gender to 15 and removed other legal barriers.

The Transgender Support Association, which brought the lawsuit, called punishing his biblical views “particularly important for the transgender community.” Tsiartas plans to appeal the decision.

“This is what happens when we go against the drag queens.”

No; this is what happens when your ruler grabs you by the balls and yanks.


You folks up north want to borrow something?


We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,
 that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,
 that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--
 
That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men,
 deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --
 
That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends,
 it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government,
 laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form,
 as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.
 
Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes;
 and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable,
 than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed.
 
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design
 to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government,
 and to provide new Guards for their future security.--
 
Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies;
 and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.
 
The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations,
 all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.
 
To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

"Police showed up at the home of Calgary Christian Pastor Derek Reimer this morning to tell him he would soon be arrested and charged because he protested a children’s drag queen story time at a public library over the weekend, saying “homosexuality is a sin.”

Just WHERE did he get a crazy idea like that?


 
We are living in a Genesis 19:9 world...
 

"Get out of our way,” they replied.
“This fellow came here as a foreigner, and now he wants to play the judge!
We’ll treat you worse than them.”
They kept bringing pressure on Lot and moved forward to break down the door.
 


The Health Risks of gay sex.


 

And now,  a BIBLICAL Message about homosexuality



 
Genesis 13:13
Now the men of Sodom were wicked and were sinning greatly against the LORD.

Genesis 18:20-21
20. Then the LORD said, "The outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is so great and 
their sin so grievous
21. that I will go down and see if what they have done is as bad as the outcry that has reached me. If not, I will know."

Genesis 19:4-7
4. Before they had gone to bed, all the men from every part of the city of Sodom--both young and old--surrounded the house.
5. They called to Lot, "Where are the men who came to you tonight? Bring them out to us so that we can have sex with them."
6. Lot went outside to meet them and shut the door behind him
7. and said, "No, my friends. Don't do this wicked thing.


Leviticus niv

18:22 Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.

20:13 If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. 

           They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.

 
 


Psalms 12:8 The wicked freely strut about when what is vile is honored among men.

Isaiah 3:9 The look on their faces testifies against them;

they parade their sin like Sodom; they do not hide it.

Woe to them! They have brought disaster upon themselves.

================================================

2 Peter 2:13b Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight.

They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.

================================================

Ezekiel 16:49-50  "`Now this was the sin of your sister Sodom:

She and her daughters were arrogant, overfed and unconcerned; they did not help the poor and needy.

They were haughty and did detestable things before me.

 Therefore I did away with them as you have seen.

 


Romans 1     New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)
 
 18 The wrath of God is indeed being revealed from heaven against every impiety and wickedness of those who suppress the truth by their wickedness. 19 For what can be known about God is evident to them, because God made it evident to them. 20 Ever since the creation of the world, his invisible attributes of eternal power and divinity have been able to be understood and perceived in what he has made. As a result, they have no excuse; 21 for although they knew God they did not accord him glory as God or give him thanks. Instead, they became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless minds were darkened. 22 While claiming to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for the likeness of an image of mortal man or of birds or of four-legged animals or of snakes.
 

24 Therefore, God handed them over to impurity through the lusts of their hearts for the mutual degradation of their bodies. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie and revered and worshiped the creature rather than the creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. 26 Therefore, God handed them over to degrading passions. Their females exchanged natural relations for unnatural, 27 and the males likewise gave up natural relations with females and burned with lust for one another. Males did shameful things with males and thus received in their own persons the due penalty for their perversity. 28 And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God handed them over to their undiscerning mind to do what is improper. 29 They are filled with every form of wickedness, evil, greed, and malice; full of envy, murder, rivalry, treachery, and spite. 


2 Peter 2

1. But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them--bringing swift destruction on themselves.
2. Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute.
3. In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories they have made up. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.
4. For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgment;
5. if he did not spare the ancient world when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others;
6. if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, and made them an example of what is going to happen to the ungodly;
7. and if he rescued Lot, a righteous man, who was distressed by the filthy lives of lawless men
8. (for that righteous man, living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)--
9. if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue godly men from trials and to hold the unrighteous for the day of judgment, while continuing their punishment.
10. This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire of the sinful nature and despise authority. Bold and arrogant, these men are not afraid to slander celestial beings;
11. yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not bring slanderous accusations against such beings in the presence of the Lord.
12. But these men blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like brute beasts, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like beasts they too will perish.
13. They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. 
Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you.


What kind of a people are we;

that we allow men dressed in womens clothes

to pervert the minds of little children?


But there IS hope!!!

1 Corinthians 6:9-11

  9. Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived:
      Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders
10. nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.
11. And that is what some of you were. 
But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

If you could NOT change, you would be in most pitiful shape...
