Bill77Ontario

Last Thursday, all three Ontario provincial government parties collaborated together to pass Bill 77. The bill makes it illegal to provide psychotherapy to a minor who is experiencing unwanted homosexual or transgendered feelings - even if they are requesting the therapy.

LifeSiteNews reported that, "National Post columnist Barbara Kay called the bill a “dangerous overreach” because politicians were deciding for psychiatrists what was treatable and what wasn’t." They also reported that, "Dr. Joseph Berger, an eminent Toronto psychiatrist...called the bill “ill-advised.” Berger went on to explain that, "Transgenderism is a classic delusion and society ought to help a deluded person see reality, not try to change reality (through mutilation of the genitalia) to fit the delusion." He later shared that "between 20 and 40 percent say they have homosexual feelings in their teens, but only 1-2 percent say so later."

If you are from Ontario we encourage you to email your MPP (in a spirit of love and honour) to express your views on the passing of this legislation. Also, please continue to pray for the province of Ontario. The annual Pride Week is scheduled for this month.

A personal note from our director in regards to the passing of Bill 77 and the current battle in Ontario over the s-x curriculum:

Over the past weeks I have had many e-mails, and Facebook messages asking one question, “What do we do about the radical s-xual agendas that are being pushed through our provincial governments?”

In response to this question I have had one repeated response arise in my heart. It is this: those who disagree with this agenda need to run for office, at every level of government, whether that be federal, provincial or municipal (or get involved with being a voice for Godly values through media). In the short term activism and prayer is fine, and an important part of the overall process of being a voice in Canada. However, in the medium to long term the bottom line is that those who are in office are the ones who have the power to set agenda, or stop agenda. I want to appeal to those of you that consider yourself socially conservative and pro-family to seriously consider running for office.

Over the last 10 years of advocacy work in Canada I have noticed that things can change, and fast. Things that were “unthinkable” only a few years ago are now broadly accepted because a few committed people on the inside of the government system chose to work to see their agendas passed, even when they were out of step with the values of the majority of Canadians at the time. It is not actually that hard to change a nation. All you need is committed people in the right places.

I firmly believe that if people who hold socially conservative values will begin running for office (federally, provincially, municipally, for school boards, library boards etc.) we can see many of these socially liberal agendas reversed within a few years. I appeal to you to consider giving of a season of your life to serve your nation in this way. Until then, go to the rallies, write the letters, make the phone calls, sign the petitions and pray. We just can't stop there. Please consider this calling.

KomarnickiMotion

Conservative MP Ed Komarnicki tabled a motion in the House of Commons recently which would allow MPs of all parties to vote freely on issues of conscience. Whether dealing with the issue of abortion, euthanasia, the environment, domestic security or any other controversial social justice issue it is imperative that MPs have the freedom to vote according to the general conscience of their constituents as opposed to being forced to vote their party’s position.

Mr. Komarnicki stated, "In the interest of democracy, justice and good government, we want all members to vote on these issues freely and without impediment."

The issue of freedom of conscience has been increasingly under fire in Parliament with the Liberal Party of Canada stating that they will not allow their MPs to vote in a pro-life manner even if this is the will of the majority of the constituents that a MP represents. Because of this Mr. Komarnicki’s motion could not come at a better time.

Please join us in supporting this important motion.

Truth Reconciliation

A report from the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) of Canada was presented between May 31st and June 3rd in Ottawa. During the week up to 10,000 First Peoples and non-First Peoples walked through downtown Ottawa in a show of unity and reconciliation. The report presented had 94 recommendations for changes in Canadian policies and programs.

To read the full article click here.

The TRC is made up of individuals who were previously children/students that attended and survived Indian residential schools in Canada. The purpose of the TRC is to create a vehicle for these individuals to teach the rest of Canada the truthful history from their perspective of what they went through as children in residential schools. The TRC also provides a platform for these individuals to speak from the depths of their hearts to say "this is what I went through but I am reclaiming my life and I want our country to learn from this experience."

Indian Residential Schools are a part of Canadian history. For more than 120 years Aboriginal children were taken from their families and stripped of their cultural identity by being sent to these schools that were funded by the federal government and run by various churches. Unfortunately the relationship between Canada and its Aboriginal people has suffered because of it. The TRC hopes to bring reconciliation between the two that is based on mutual understanding and respect.

Please take a moment to e-mail your MP and ask them to continue to work for reconciliation in Canada.

CANADA'S FIRST CONFERENCE ON MEN AND ABORTION

Often times abortion is seen as only a women's issue and only effecting the woman afterwards. With research and scientific evidence it is found that abortion causes both harm and suffering to the man involved as well.
