Liberals now claim Christian parents are dangerous. Scary possibilities arise. By Jonathon Van Maren. What once seemed far fetched and ridiculous can become normal quite quickly. For example, all mainstream leftist politicians a decade ago said gay marriage was absurd and not on the agenda.

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. …

Christian parents and foster parents are increasingly finding themselves “disqualified” from adopting children or taking children into their homes because of their views. …

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. …

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 position — after 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 citizens. …

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 children — because they are Christian. …

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?

Evangelical Christians have been out-breeding leftists for decades, because they generally have larger families. Leftists counter by educating many of the Christian children in leftist government schools — come over to our side! What next?
