Calling someone by the wrong gender could now become a hate crime in Canada. The protection of gender identity is now being compared to the protection of freedom of religion by proponents of the new legislation.
Here is some of the story as reported by the Daily Caller:
“Canada passed a law Thursday making it illegal to use the wrong gender pronouns. Critics say that Canadians who do not subscribe to progressive gender theory could be accused of hate crimes, jailed, fined, and made to take anti-bias training…
“Proud that Bill C-16 has passed in the Senate,” said Jody Wilson-Raybould, the country’s attorney general and minister of justice. “All Canadians should feel #FreeToBeMe.”
So this is the point we have come to now? Comparing gender identity to religious freedom?
So if I believe I am a girl even though I was born with a man’s body I can now call it my religion to believe I am something I am not and force the world to go along with my mental disorder? And yes that is exactly what homosexuality and transgenderism is – it is a mental disorder. Let us remember that up until the 70’s and 80’s homosexuality and transgenderism were RIGHTLY labeled as mental disorders by the main stream American medical establishment.
It is absolutely crazy what our world is coming too. Whether it be homosexual or transgender so-called “rights” or the homosexual or transgender agenda we are giving away our freedoms more and more as a society. We have been doing this for decades and now we are reaping the consequences.
The Word of God clearly states “male and female created he them”(Genesis 1:27) and it tells us what homosexuals and transgenders do is “against nature“(Romans 1:26) and “unseemly“(Romans 1:27). God did NOT create homosexuality or transgenderism and we must continue to preach that these behaviors are corruptions of his perfect design.
Many who fight to force our nations to accept the homosexual and transgender agendas are fighting to force us to accept what is against nature as God designed it. And unlike the Civil Rights movement which was about race, this is about behavior. It is about forcing people to accept and validate behavior which violates their deepest religious beliefs as well as their own sense of the natural world.
And unlike the Civil rights movement of the 60’s(which had its own problems) this is one the progressives will not win. Men have died for their faith for centuries before the homosexual and transgender movements of the modern era. If Christians are being put in hand cuffs over speech against homosexuality and transgenderism or failure to fully embrace it the progressives will awake a sleeping giant. Even those who are more secular and don’t have a religious beef with homosexuals and transgenders will begin to turn against them when Christians are locked up for their faith.
It is one thing to say you want to be free to be a homosexual or transgender – most Americans will accept giving you that freedom now.
But you are not free to force anyone to validate your behavior which they find to be immoral. You are not “free” to make them make your wedding cake or cater your gay wedding. You are not “free” to make them take of photos of your gay pride event. You are not “free” to make them design your gay website. You are not “free” to make Christian adoption organizations adopt to gay couples.
In other words, You are not “free” to force us to violate our Christian faith by making us validate your immoral behavior.
On these principles, most Americans will agree whether they are Christian or non-Christian. Once Christians start being prosecuted regularly for supposed “hate crimes” against homosexuals and transgenders for simply not participating in events that honor or promote homosexuality or transgenderism this nation’s acceptance and embrace of homosexuality and transgenderism will fracture.
