'Gay' marriage galvanizes Canada's religious right
OTTAWA: It was a lonely time here in the capital for the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada in the early days of the gay marriage debate in 2003.

Of the scattered conservative Christian groups opposed to extending marriage rights to same-sex couples, it was the only one with a full-time office in Ottawa to lobby politicians. "We were the only ones here," said Janet Epp Buckingham, who was the group's public policy director then.

But that was before the legislation passed in 2005 allowing gay marriage in Canada ...

"Quebecers have sat in the prime minister's chair for an astonishing 43 of the last 55 years"

living hell? hardly the case now. the "Great Upheavel" is only taught in the states because of Louisianna. The average Quebecer cares about it as much as I care about the loyalists who were forcibly ejected after the american revolution and had to move to canada.

Me too, Mike....I guess Canadian metal products are one of a kind, very resistant to corrosion .

Correct, Neil. I can only imagine faintly how it must have been for husbands, wives and children to see their homes burned and then be separated onto different ships and be at the "mercy" of your enemy's captains. The wikipedia article is quite brief, but generally accurate, but not as graphic as literature I have read and studied. I realize the Acadians' settlement was in Nova Scotia and vicinity, not necessarily Quebec proper...however, many fled in that direction.

Perhaps Remnant has the Acadian "Great Upheavel" in mind:

Faithful Remnant,
I have never heard of the "living hell" that you claim the British forced on the early French settlers in Quebec. That is incorrect. The British actually gave Quebec the right to govern themselves, except on matters which fall under Federal jurisdiction such as the postal system, armed forces, printing of money, etc. Quebec has its share of members of Parliament in the Federal Government House of Commons, a large share in the Senate, and very large numbers in all levels of the Federal government in Ottawa and central and eastern Canada. They have Roman Catholic Canon Law in Quebec. We have a Federal system here in Canada which gives the provincial governments, including Quebec, a lot of powers to make their own laws.

They run their own health care system, educational system, language laws to protect the French language, canon law to protect the French culture, etc. They have benefited in many ways from being part of Canada. Canada has excelled in pluralism and has expended a lot of energy and resources to protect minorities, Quebec being a big beneficiary. It is far from a melting pot. That is the history.

You can't even campaign against same sex marriage.

Canada's hate laws prevent it.

So how do you expect to win?

The United States is close behind, and it's only a matter of months before our free speech rights are killed also.

B'Nai B'rith and ADL are behind the push for passage of the so-called "hate" laws, laws which have been narrowly stopped in the past, but this time may go sailing through. Ted Kennedy keeps sponsoring them.

Already people are afraid to speak against Bush lest they be called "terrorists" -- since Bush said he who is not with him is against him.

But if we get these hate laws, nobody will be able to criticize Bush for his homosexuality either.

Considering the living hell the British forced upon the early French settlers, it's no surprise how Quebec behaves(still recovering, I suppose)....and it's actually more orthodox(the Mid-east and Kyoto issues anyway).

We are still in an uphill battle here in Canada. I think getting enough support in the present minority Parliament to overturn the same-sex marriage law will be difficult.

The Conservatives also need the support of Quebec voters to win a majority government in the next election. At present they are not too popular with a lot of Quebecers because of Canada's military involvment in Afghanistan and the Kyoto Protocol issue. Quebec is more pacifist than the rest of Canada, and they also more strongly support environmental action against industry and automobiles, like the Kyoto Protocol, (even though it may be bad for Canada, and in my opinion, not stop global warming, if it even exists).

Outside Quebec, in the rest of Canada, about half are against having the military in Afghanistan. This will probably be an issue in the next election and the election results could affect the existing same-sex marriage law and whether it is rescinded by the next Parliament. We in Canada need the prayers of Christians everywhere.

Sounds like happy people in Canada are quite adept in the metal industries . Homosexual activists on the other hand are not inheriting heaven (1st Cor. 6:9-10) and should therefore have no control of the Christian Church given to them.
