February 9th, 2023:
“A new report from the Family Research Council (FRC) highlights the growing persecution and intolerance towards Christians in the West.”
Well done, say CAP. Those who make an effort to move beyond the media firewall funded by Canada’s Liberal government will discover the incredible imbalance in terms of reporting on the topic of racism.
By way of federally-funded CBC News, the entire dynamic is skewed by cries of “systemic racism,” so-called Islamophobia, and other accusations intended to lower the collective self-esteem of Canadian society.
For decades, a gaping hole has existed regarding persecution of Christians on a world-wide basis, as well as upon Canadian soil. In truth, Cultural Action Party[est. 2016] has never understood why media would deal in such a blatant imbalance.
“Nigeria is considered the ‘Greatest Enemy of Christian Faith in the World,’ and country with the world’s largest Christian deaths for the year 2021.”
“No fewer than 5,191 of the victims were unarmed citizens hacked to death or shot by Islamic radicals or hostile members of the country’s security forces.”
Did you know? For the year 2022, Nigeria was #4 on the list of top sources for immigration to Canada. On this basis– and even without it– Canadians deserve to understand the extent of community persecution in proper context.
Canadian media do not fulfill this obligation. Eschewing examples of racism government do not want our citizenship to become aware of, anti-Christian bigotry in all forms is omitted from media presentation.
In its stead arrives “Islamophobia” and its vicissitudes. Let us present this in street level context:
“Over 50,000 Christians have been killed in Nigeria since the outbreak of the Boko Haram Islamist insurgency in 2009, a newly-released report published by a Nigerian non-governmental organization has revealed.”
Not a peep from Canadian media. Then, we have the tearing of a Hijab off the head of a Muslim school girl in Canada:
“An alleged scissor-attack targeting a hijab-wearing Toronto schoolgirl drew condemnation from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.”
Turns out the scissor-attack never occurred– the young girl made up the story. But even if it did, our point has been made. A pair of scissors versus 50,000 murdered Christians? You be the judge.
“In the same period, 18,000 Christian churches and 2,200 Christian schools were set ablaze.”
We transition to Canada:
“A series of vandalizations, church arsons, and suspicious fires in June and July 2021 desecrated, damaged, or destroyed 68 Christian churches in Canada.”
Trudeau called the destruction “understandable.” Would he have done the same regarding Sikh Temples? One can fit Liberal government condemnation of these arson attacks on the head of a pin. Simply put, the Liberals couldn’t give a damn.
“The authors of the report admit that their work is far from exhaustive but it does highlight the factors contributing to Western governments’ violations of Christians’ religious freedom.”
The country with the highest number of incidents in the FRC report was the U.S., with 58, followed by the U.K., with 43, and Canada, with 36 cases.
Number #3 on the charts, Justin Trudeau’s “no-core-identity” Canada. Glaring discrepancies flavour the food of the press in this category.
Take the Covid pandemic as an example. Readers may be familiar with a crackdown on Christian religious freedom which occurred during a two-year period in which the pandemic permeated Canadian society.
Christian churches busted, pastors arrested and placed in prison cells. All the while, not a single incident of equivalence was covered by establishment media in terms of Sikh Temples and Islamic Mosques.
Why? Are common sense Canadians to believe that not one of thousands of these houses of worship violated pandemic regulations? At the behest of the Trudeau government, non-Christian places of worship were omitted, while Christian churches were exclusively targeted.
Systemic religious persecution, or what? Equally fascinating is the idea that Liberal government behaviour so closely emulated methods in which the government of China deal with those who practice Christianity.
“The second theme seen throughout the past four years was Christians being fired, fined, arrested, or even imprisoned for speaking out against the LGBT or abortion agenda, as well as for praying or preaching in public.”
Irony oozes from the pores as insightful Canadians recognize a glaring hypocrisy inherent in the character of PM Trudeau.
While claiming to be a “practicing” Catholic, the PM systemically violates nearly every tenet of the Christian faith.
Pro-Abortion, Pro-Euthanasia, LGBT financier, transgender promoter. If this guy is a true Christian, than Osama bin Laden deserved to be appointed Pope.
“The report included the case of Josh Alexander, the Canadian teenager who famously organized a protest at St. Joseph Catholic High School against males using women’s bathrooms.”
“He was expelled and then arrested for trespassing when he returned to his school. Alexander said his parents were put on leave from their jobs as teachers in Ontario simply for being related to him.”
A blatant violation of a young Canadian’s rights. The very same goes on in China, a nation lauded not only by Justin Trudeau, but by brother Alexandre Trudeau, as well as Pierre Trudeau before them.
After which we add a corollary. A person doesn’t have to be a Christian to dislike these examples of community favouritism and draconian governance. All one has to do is believe in proper application of the law, in addition to the idea that individual rights and freedoms are to be maintained within society.
Justin Trudeau and his Liberal neo-communist government wouldn’t take this position for all the white rice in China.
