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.
