!! A CALL FOR ACTION!!
Recently a church in Steinbach (where the uproar over this anti-bullying law is) released this statement in their newsletter regarding the bill:
"As many of you are aware the province is looking to pass a Bill on antibullying referred to as Bill 18. While we certainly do not condone any form
of bullying and believe that measures need to be taken to ensure that our
schools are safe environments for our children, we also need to be aware
that Bill 18 is much more than an anti-bullying Bill.
In reality this bill is ultimately not about bullying. It is about aggressively
promoting a pro-homosexual educational agenda in our schools, one which
seeks to brainwash our children into viewing homosexual behavior as
perfectly normal, good and moral – a healthy alternative to the traditional
heterosexual marriage relationship.
While it is not our intent at Word of Life Church to condemn those who
struggle with homosexuality, it is important that we hold to the standards
set for us in God’s Word. Scripture makes it very clear that the institution of
marriage is reserved for a man and woman. God created the gift of
marriage and as a Church we must stand for this wonderful blessing from
It would appear the Manitoba government has decided that, contrary to the
Bible, it is a self-evident truth that homosexual behavior is a perfectly good
and moral alternative to the traditional heterosexual marriage relationship.
It would appear that they believe all children should have the ‘right’ to be
taught about, and even encouraged to explore this type of behavior.
Again, it is not our intent to condemn or show hatred toward those engaged
in a homosexual lifestyle. However, believing that homosexuality is a sin
because the Bible states it as such is not bullying.
Forcing our children to learn about and accept the homosexual lifestyle is
As Christians we need to be aware of insidious Bills such as Bill 18 that chip
away at the moral core of our society. To some fighting this Bill may seem
extreme. But, if we don’t stand up for the rights of the Christian home and
the values of God’s Word then who will? This is where being a dedicated
and unashamed believer in Jesus Christ becomes a reality.
I would encourage all of you to go to the following website
www.protectourschools.ca and take a minute to express your opposition to
Bill 18. You will be asked fill in your name, your mailing address and your
email address. When you click ‘send email’ and an email outlining your
opposition to Bill 18 will automatically be sent to 4 people:
1. Your MLA (there’s a drop-down bar to pick who your MLA is);
2. Manitoba Premier Greg Selinger
3. Education Minister Nancy Allan
4. Opposition Leader Brian Pallister
Please make this a priority as this Bill could be passed as early as this spring.
Continue to pray for our country and our government in what is another
clear reminder that we are living in the last days.”
Anyone know how to shut down that site (protectourschools.ca) that sends the emails?
This anti-bullying law needs to be passed.
AND SO I URGE YOU TO E-MAIL THE PASTORS AND CHILDREN’S ADMINISTATORS OF THIS CHURCH REGARDING THEIR TOTAL IGNORANCE:
