That’s the view Jack Fonseca, above, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition.
According to this report, Fonseca “excoriated” the Liberals after it was announced that the Canadian Government will ban any employer from receiving summer job grants for students if the employer doesn’t first sign an “attestation” that they agree with equality laws – laws that those of a religious bent are strongly opposed to.
In order to receive federal Canada job grants, employers must attest that:
Both the job and the organization’s core mandate respect individual human rights in Canada, including the values underlying the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms as well as other rights. These include reproductive rights and the right to be free from discrimination on the basis of sex, religion, race, national or ethnic origin, colour, mental or physical disability, sexual orientation, or gender identity or expression.
Fonseca went ballistic:
This is a jaw-dropping act of discrimination against faith-based employers and non-profits. Although the Trudeau Liberals have signaled many times they have special contempt for Christians, this new policy requires a massive negative reaction from all faith-based communities in Canada – Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, etc.
More and more, Justin Trudeau is transforming the Liberal Party into a hate group against Christians … It’s abundantly clear the Trudeau Liberals hate Christians.
Conservative MP Brad Trost, above, was first to publicly raise the alarm in a twitter and Facebook video in which he denounces the Liberals for discrimination.
In practical terms, this means you have to be with the Liberal Party position on abortion, gay marriage, transgendered rights, all sorts of legislation in the House of Commons, otherwise you will be an ineligible employer for this program. That’s wrong, that’s discrimination.
He added that Canadians:
Are allowed to have different political beliefs than the government of the day and they shouldn’t have their funding be cut off because they disagree with the government.
The second problem with this is it automatically excludes all faith-based organizations that are traditional on their values of human life and sexual morality. That includes millions and millions of Canadians.
Non-profit groups, small businesses, and public sector employers can apply for funding through Canada Summer Jobs programme to create jobs for students from 15 to 30 years of age.
Formerly, it was up to individual MPs to assess and approve funding applications from groups in their constituencies.
But Trudeau Liberals already decreed last year no Liberal MP could approve Canada Summer Job funding for pro-life groups. Moreover, Liberal Minister of Employment, Workforce Development and Labour Patty Hajdu said at the time through spokesman Matt Pascuzzo that she would change the programme to make sure no pro-life group would be approved in the future.
Pascuzzo said at the time:
We have been unequivocal in our support for a woman’s fundamental right to choose.
Alliance for Life Ontario and the Canadian Center for Bioethical Reform were among pro-life groups cut off from Canada Student Job funding in 2017.
Pro-family leaders have warned Christians will face increasing economic and political pressure to conform to the pro-abortion, pro-homosexual ideology, including the possibility of having to sign on to a declaration supporting human “rights,” such as abortion and homosexuality.
Fonseca echoed this.
This is no minor tweak to a federal program. This is a ground-breaking first step on the inevitable path to raw totalitarianism and open persecution with the sanction of the state.
Once the government implements this unconstitutional, anti-Christian policy, the next thing will be that the private sector will take it as permission to do the same thing. Perhaps first with supplier contracts. But eventually, private sector employees will be required to sign such a declaration which essentially, is a way of getting Christians to disavow their beliefs.
Campaign Life Coalition has launched a petition calling on the House of Commons to protect faith-based employers from discrimination in the summer jobs programme.
