THE SERVANT GENERAL
ASSAULTS ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
CHRISTIAN PARENTS ARE DANGEROUS?
Liberals are overturning all good sense and continue to impose
their diabolical agenda on society. Imagine claiming good,
Christian parents are bad for their children. Liberal governments
intend to take over the raising of children and will not tolerate
Christian ways of doing so.They will remove the rights of
parents. The assault on family continues unabated.
Liberals now claim Christian parents are dangerous.
This is an existential threat we can’t ignore
10, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – Over the past two decades,
it has slowly dawned on Christians that the implications of
same-sex “marriage” are far greater for those
who still believe in the traditional understanding of marriage
than even the cynics first thought possible. The
politicians, the academics, and the media have reached the
collective conclusion that if gay “marriage” is
a civil right, those who oppose it are not simply dissenters
holding to a two-thousand-year-old tradition, but ugly bigots
who deserve to be marginalized for their discriminatory views.
Thus, “live and let live” turned into “you
will be forced to participate and approve,”
with bakers, florists, property owners, and adoption agencies
finding themselves to be the targets of gay activists who
show a shocking ruthlessness in their enthusiasm for prosecuting
supposed thought crimes.
None of this will be news to most of you, but the
impact of radical reinvention of our social structures is
beginning to impact Christian communities in ways that are
striking even closer to home. There is the fact that public
schools across Canada (and many places in the United States)
are beginning to implement sex education that runs directly
contrary to the beliefs of many traditionalist communitiesand
governments are beginning to eye Christian and private schools
as unwelcome havens of dissenting thought and education. And
worse: Christian parents and foster parents are increasingly
finding themselves “disqualified” from adopting
children or taking children into their homes because of their
I’ve spoken to many prospective parents and foster parents
over the last several years who were either overtly rejected
as a result of their views on sexuality, or otherwise found
that they were suddenly and abruptly rejected when their views
were made known. Often, direct questions are put to Christian
parents to find out if they still hold to Christian principles,
with the obvious insinuation that answers not fitting with
the current progressive ideology will render them unfit to
care for children.
Considering the massive shortage of willing foster parents
across Canada, this is a rather shocking and blunt move on
the part of those in charge of the process: Essentially, Christian
parents are being told that their views render them so dangerous
that it is better that children desperate for a loving home
are still shuffled from place to place rather than come into
contact with views that were nearly universal only short decades
ago. Such stories are now just beginning to surface in the
mainstream media, with an Edmonton, Alberta couple being the
latest example. From Canada’s national broadcaster:
An evangelical Christian couple is accusing Alberta of
discrimination, claiming their application to adopt a child
was rejected over their religious views on gay marriage and
homosexuality. The Edmonton married couple say they submitted
their application last year and passed a required course for
potential adoptive parents.
But during a followup by officials this year, the couple say
they ran into trouble when they answered questions about sexuality.
The couple say they accept that same-sex marriage is a legal
reality, but they don't support it and believe that homosexuality
"The casework supervisor explained that our religious
beliefs regarding sexuality were incompatible with the adoption
process," says an affidavit filed in support of an application
for a judicial review of the government's decision.
"The casework supervisor said this stance was the 'official
position of the Alberta government.' "
The couple said they were also asked how they would deal with
a child who was questioning his or her sexuality. They told
officials that children should be taught that sexuality should
not be experienced or explored until a person is an adult
and is married. The couple, who aren't named in the legal
documents, said they treat all people with respect and their
views on sexuality would have no bearing on their ability
to provide a loving, secure and happy home to a child. They
said they never dreamed they would be disqualified from helping
children in need because of their religious beliefs.
You’ll notice that the initial myths propagated by those
who advocated for the reinvention of marriage are crumbling
away. The government does not take a neutral positionafter
all, it is not only evangelicals who hold to a traditional
understanding of marriage. Sikhs, Muslims, mainstream Mormons,
Catholics, and Orthodox Jews also reject the progressive reinvention
of marriage. Of course, it is so far only Catholics and evangelicals
who have found themselves in the crosshairs, and so politicians
feel perfectly comfortable smearing and bashing these communities
as bigots without feeling as if they are undermining their
vacuous virtue-signalling on multiculturalism and immigration.
There is now an official “government position,”
and those who do not hold it are rapidly becoming second-class
As I mentioned, I’ve heard many versions of this story
over the past several years, and I expect that this will only
increase in the coming years. But what is important for Christians
to note here is that they are being demonized in a very, very
dangerous way. The government’s rejection of Christian
homes as loving environments for children is an implicit statement:
They are stating that Christians
are not fit to raise childrenbecause they are Christian.
This is why provincial governments across Canada are making
moves to force Christian schools to change thousands of years
of doctrine, and this is why Christians must be alert and
aware of what is taking place, and engaged in the political
After all, if Christian parents are deemed unfit to care for
children with nowhere else to go, how long will it be before
the government decides that they are unfit to care for any
children? What if they decide that any educational institution
or homeschooling group that does not adhere to the “government
position” can no longer be entrusted with children?
What if they decide that parents who hold to Christian principles
are damaging their own children because of those principles?
Listen closely to the rhetoric that is being used, and look
carefully at the justification politicians like Alberta Premier
Rachel Notley are using to make it illegal for parents to
be told what their children are doing while at school in the
care of government employees. They are already making the
case that Christian parents are dangerous. And that, for Christian
parents and their children, could turn into an existential
threat. It is time that communities that still believe parents
have the right to educate their children and pass on their
own values to stand up and pay attention. If we don’t,
things could get even worse very quickly.
