We are all hypocrites to some degree or another.
I will be the first to acknowledge this.
There does exist hypocrisy, however, that is most dangerous to not just families, but to the very fabric of society.
I know many of you are well aware of that which I speak. Some of you are already becoming defensive. And yet others will remain oblivious. Such is mankind (Yes, I considered writing humanity, and I would have, were I not so frightened and angry right now).
Here in Canada, Bill 89 has passed. Various groups, among them PAFE (Parents As First Educators), have been fighting the wording in this bill.
The gist of it is that if you want to adopt a child, but hold the Natural Law and Christian view that Marriage is between a Man and a Woman, you cannot adopt. And if you already have children with you and you “abuse” them with your ideology, they can be taken from you.
Statements by Minister of Child and Family Services Michael Coteau clearly signaled the pro-LGBTQ, gender ideology Liberal agenda, critics warned.
Coteau, who introduced the bill, told QP Briefing he sees questioning teenagers’ self-identification as LGBTQI or telling them to change as abuse.
“I would consider that a form of abuse, when a child identifies one way and a caregiver is saying no, you need to do this differently,” he said.
“If it’s abuse, and if it’s within the definition, a child can be removed from that environment and placed into protection where the abuse stops.”
What if you God has entrusted you with biological children? Are you safe?
Children’s Aid agencies now have “a type of police power to bust down your door, and seize your biological children if you are known to oppose LGBT ideology and the fraudulent theory of ‘gender identity’, if for instance, some claim is made that your child may be same-sex attracted or confused about their ‘gender,’” according to Fonseca.
And where are the defenders of our Faith? Where are those that represent Mother Church?
Not surprising, sadly.
Our Shepherds are abandoning the flock. I wonder if they read today’s Gospel?
When they had finished breakfast, Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.” A second time he said to him, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.” He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep. Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were young, you girded yourself and walked where you would; but when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and another will gird you and carry you where you do not wish to go.” (This he said to show by what death he was to glorify God.) And after this he said to him, “Follow me.”
~ John 21:15-19
If we say we Love Him, should not our actions reflect this love?
Again, I am the first to acknowledge that we fail at this, we all do. But our Shepherds hold a greater responsibility, us, the Flock. And we have been abandoned for far too long, the wolves are upon us. They have been and have dispersed the Flock. How long must we wait?
When we become impassioned, we may fail to listen to reason.
When we fall victims to fear, self-preservation may cause us to weaken.
When we are pressured by name calling and labels, we may cower.
But when we claim that we want justice, equality, love and fairness, but only if you agree with me…
The Ontario court in 1995 ruled “for the first time in Canadian history that it was ‘discriminatory’ of the Child and Family Services Act to not allow homosexual couples to bring a joint application for adoption.”
But the “same activists who cried discrimination in 1995 [are] now actively legislating the same discrimination upon Bible-believing Christians, by banning them from having children through adoption,” Fonseca said.
“Will the left never feel ashamed of its hypocrisy?”
None of us ever do, at least not aloud…
