Christians in Toronto spoke out, and after a fight they have won their case. So just what is this about?
In Dundas Square there are many events that take place. For the past five years, a Christian organization called Voices of the Nations has held an event to "promote diversity within the Christian Community by showcasing its mosaic of fine arts and music" .
Suddenly in October of 2015, they were informed that they would not be issued a permit for their next festival because"praising Jesus in their song’s lyrics contravenes the city policy against “proselytizing.”
*Proselytizing means to try to persuade someone to switch to your religious beliefs
Go back and read that again...they were denied a permit for their concert because they sang about Jesus! Now consider that they do not stop Muslims from setting up booths for the express purpose of “proselytizing” (ie) converting people to Islam. Likewise whenOmar Albach, a Muslim University student blasted out the Muslim Call to Prayer, not only was he not stopped, he was not even warned by the police!
Whatever happened to Canada as a Free Country with Freedom of Speech??
Whether you are a Christian, Jew or do not hold by any faith at all this should cause great concern. If you are Christian this is a wake up call! Christians in the middle east are being persecuted and slaughtered for their refusal to turn their backs on Jesus. If Christians in the west continue to placidly sit back and "hope it will blow over" you will soon find yourselves on the run just like your brothers and sisters in the middle east~and note that nobody is rushing to take them in as refugees.
Below is the story. Listen carefully to the exact words of the bigoted woman who denied the permit...and remember if you are not for your faith~who is?
Listen to the Bigot Deny the Group Because they Sing About Jesus! Then Hear the Good News!
