A roundup of news and commentary from around the interwebs.
Justin Trudeau’s next move may be even more radical than usual—demanding that all chaplains in the Canadian forces accept his view of LGBT ideology (see point 6 of the recommendations here by the Government of Canada.) Leslyn Lewis responded perfectly:
The Advisory Panel on Systemic Racism and Discrimination was delivered to the Minister of National Defence in January, but people are only just now realizing how far it goes in its attack on traditional faiths.
It recommends that the Department of National Defence “Not consider for employment as spiritual guides or multi-faith representatives Chaplaincy applicants affiliated with religious groups whose values are not aligned with those of the Defence Team.”
Asking that chaplains’ values are aligned with the Defence Team may seem innocent enough, but when you read further you see that the “religious groups” it considers to not have the right values fall under the banner of “The Abrahamic Religions.”
This explicitly is stating that followers of Christianity, Islam, and Judaism should be disqualified from serving as chaplains in the military.
How are all the Jewish, Muslim and Christian members of the military to feel now that they have been singled out as out-of-step with the values of the country they are fighting for? Or that their beliefs are explicitly compared to the worst kinds of racism in the same report?
These are good questions. The reality is that the longer Trudeau is prime minister, the further Canadians of faith will be pushed to the margins.
More consequences of our gender insanity—again, suffered by a woman. The New York Post reports:
A transgender Rikers inmate raped a female prisoner while in the women’s section of the jail and has been sentenced to seven years, officials said Monday.
Not a peep from the progressives, of course. Eggs and omelets and all that. (Women are the eggs in their gender scenario.)
Catholic writer Miriam Diller writes a scathing and important essay on how “TikTok is emotionally and spiritually killing our children.”
The New York Times actually dropped the word “fetus” from their Wordle game after the leak of the Roe v. Wade opinion. For real.
