We can debate the issue for years, about whose policies are best, whose policies are putting Canada on track for economic recovery, and all that, but bottom line is that we cannot put Civil & Human Rights as being Inconsequential. The Government is the bastion to defend our DEMOCRACTIC RIGHTS, NOT TO HIDE THEM.
Stephen Harper & his Conservatives have a different view on Democracy. To them, it is about FOISTING their own narrow minded view on ALL CITIZENS, and in ignoring the truth, whenever possible.
Am I bitter? Certainly am, because you know, while Canada winning Gold in Curling or in Hockey is nice, there are other achievements, that are monumental. For example, setting aside religious views, to insure all citizens can access all benefits of citizenship.
After reading the report on CBC, about how our Immigration Minister has attempted to HIDE HISTORICAL TRUTHS due to his own narrow minded, bigoted view of Gays, it infuriates me, that such a political party can even hold a single seat in Parliament.
While having won so many medals, the action by the Immigration Minister, to demote the achievements of Gay Rights in our Country, diminishes all those medals. YES, I said that, because you know, our accomplishments are more than just winning some brief glory on a sports field. The fact that Canada protected the rights of an unpopular minority, will triumph any Gold Medal won at any Sporting Event.
Think about it, because you know, the vast majority of people can barely skate, can barely ski or curl or figure skate or any of those things. Yet we all can marry the person we love, and not be worried about being thrown in jail, or executed, as Gay Citizens of Nigeria are facing.
We can all worship God in any way we want, unlike those in Iran who must worship according to the ruling tyrants. In China religion is tolerated, to some point, and yet here, we can follow any form of religion we wish, and now that has been subjected to being inconsequential, thanks to Stephen Harper and his party of Homophobes, of RACISTS.
For those who may indeed believe he is right, that allowing same sex marriages has ruined this country, then look around. Gay Marriagesdon’t have a divorce rate of 60%, but all you heterosexuals do, and more than that, not one single Church has been forced to consecrate a Gay Marriage, despite the frothing of people like Stephen Harper, Vic Toews, and our Immigration Twat Jason Kenney, that passing same sex marriage would do just that.
Once more, we have been told one thing, to force ordinary people to HATE their neighbour, who is simply different. This is a land of TOLERANCES, and it is in our HISTORY, that shows why we are different than our arrogant neighbours to the south. AND NOW, JUST LIKE GEORGE BUSH WE ARE SHOVING ASIDE OUR HISTORICAL ACHIEVEMENTS IN ORDER TO APPEASE A NARROW GROUP OF RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS WHO NEED TO BE PROPERLY POTTY TRAINED.
People forget that the UN Charter on Human Rights was a Canadian Achievement, and that Same Sex Marriage is another example of what it truly means to be a Canadian. It is about standing up for those who are not the majority. It is about protecting the French Culture who is in a minority, and it is about redressing the wrongs done in the name of religion, in regards to the Residential Schools.
All of that is not mentioned, because Mr. Harper does not want Immigrants who don’t think like him. He is about money, about protecting his interests, his special friends, not about protecting the average Canadian. He uses fear, attack, to divide this nation, not unite it.
STEPHEN HARPER & HIS PARTY MUST BE DEFEATED, TO KEEP CANADA FREE.
