By Letter to the Editor on November 12, 2017.
This is not really happening in Canada, not in Alberta, were our premier, Rachel Notley, is dictating (trying anyway) to the Catholic school board what to teach in sex education.
And this probably also counts for all Christian schools with government funding (Christians pay taxes, too).
This is the state mingling in church affairs. Christians believe it goes against God’s law what she wants to teach in schools.
It would not be a bad idea actually if the government worked more according to Christian principals and laws. It would make it a lot simpler. For example, the second greatest commandment is “love your neighbour (everybody) as you love yourself.” That means do not hurt or misuse anybody, no murder, theft, abuse, fraud or even bullying, no hatred, no jealousy. Does this not sum up just about everything we need for a safe society? Just by more love for each other, also no more divorces. How much better that would be for the thousands of children that have parents that are not together anymore.
There will never be a Canadian law “love your neighbour like yourself” but isn’t this lack of love the root of all crimes or evil? It would not be possible to enforce a law like this with people anyway; it is God’s law.
I notice more dislike or hatred toward Christians in letters to the editor, more in the Lethbridge Herald online, to the point that it is annoying to more people, and the writers (only a handful) get away with it because of what we believe, “love your neighbour as you love yourself.” Christians are supposed to forgive. Why do the critics not pick on an other religion?
I have to say this, that from all the countries and people in the world, we still have probably the best and safest country with the nicest, most helpful and giving people. We see this every time when there is help or money needed for some disaster.
May God bless Canada, the government leaders and the Canadian people.
