The State Wants God Out Of Our Lives!
How else to explain what is going on?
This Remembrance Day issue just brings it all to the fore in a dramatic way.
Epoch Times Reports :
The Department of National Defence has confirmed that chaplains can’t use the word “God” during official ceremonies such as Remembrance Day.
This follows Defence Minister Bill Blair’s dismissal as “misinformation” assertions by the Conservatives that military chaplains are being prohibited from saying prayers at Remembrance Day ceremonies.
In mandatory military ceremonies, “chaplains should not use the word ‘God’ or other references to a higher power such as ‘Heavenly Father,’” Department of National Defence (DND) spokesperson Derek Abma told The Epoch Times in an Oct. 20 statement.’
The article goes on to quote the Department of Defence spokesman of referring to a Supreme Court of Canada Decision of 2015 concerning religious neutrality .
Well , I have not read that decision( but I will) but I did help create the Charter of Right and Freedoms , a part of the Constitution Act , the Supreme Law of Canada and the opening words of the Charter are :
‘WHEREAS THIS COUNTRY IS FOUNDED ON THE PRINCIPLES WHICH RECOGNIZE THE SUPREMACY OF GOD AND THE RULE OF LAW:’
AND THAT GOD WAS/IS THE JUDEAO CHRISTIAN GOD——-ALL THE FIRST MINISTERS INVOLVED IN THE CHARTER UNDERSTOOD THAT THIS GOD WAS WHAT OUR CIVILIZATION WAS BASED ON —THE JUDEAO-CHRISTIAN ETHIC ! WE KNEW NO OTHER GOD.
And Canadians know now why courts and the Rouleau Inquiry will not hear from me.
Because I will inform them that the the decisions that have been made and are being made by the Courts involving the Charter are WRONG!!
One judge in 1985 mentioned in a decision that the Charter authors never said Christian God and therefore they have free reign to interpret as they see fit .
How wrong , how without involving context , intent, , custom , convention, concepts often mentioned in arriving at court decisions .
The momentous September 1981 decision of the Supreme Court rejecting Trudeau Sr. Government ‘s position that the unilateral government Patriation proposal was constitutional was decided because of Constitutional convention —-custom ——-that important unwritten part of our Constitution.
And here we have it in the opening words of the Charter and in the custom /convention of our society and the veterans’ ceremonies that what the Government through the Department Defence and the Military leadership is doing is VIOLATING OUR CONSTITUTION —
ITS WRITTEN AND UNWRITTEN PARTS!!!!
God is in our written Constitution and our unwritten Constitution ( customs , convention )but not allowed in our Remembrance Day Ceremonies???
Into what evil hole have we fallen ?
If some one wants to change the Constitution there is a Constitutional Way —right in the Charter —-
Using the old Trudeau unilateralism as the SCOC said in 1981 is ———
