Polish-Canadian Pastor Artur Pawlowski has been arrested and sentenced to 18 months probation for failing to comply with covid regulations in his state. Alberta has an ongoing legal battle with Pawlowski, after he continued to hold church services, despite churches being ordered to close.
Part of Pawlowski’s probation order states that he is to parrot the medical experts advice for his state in his church. This includes guidelines for social distancing, maske wearing, and vaccines.
Pawlowski has refused to comply with the order.
“This is totally and wholly new as far as sentencing goes, as far as I can see or as far as I am familiar with,” Sarah Miller, lawyer to Pawlowski, told Fox News. “I’ve never heard of any kind of probationary period which includes conditions that compelled certain speech. It seems highly unusual and rare.”
The Satanic Temple has seen it’s numbers rise in recent years in Canada. Although there is only one official chapter in Ottawa, there are unofficial meetings emerging throughout the country.
Many of the new members are former Roman Catholics. The organisation says they do not “worship Satan”. However, events see attendees proclaiming, “Hail Satan!” and performing Black Masses, as well as unbaptisms.
The organisation sees its vision to advance the separation of church and state. The Satanic Temple’s literature describes their vision as: “the communication and motivation of politically aware Satanists, secularists and advocates for individual liberty.”
Canadian authorities announced Monday they have broken up an Al Qaeda-linked terror plot to attack a passenger train as it crossed over a bridge in the Toronto area. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said that two suspects have been arrested on terrorism charges. Chiheb Esseghaier and Raed Jaser, who live in greater Montreal and Toronto — were conspiring to carry out an Al Qaeda-supported attack against Via Rail, but posed no immediate threat to the public.”It was definitely in the planning stage but not imminent,” RCMP Chief Superintendent Jennifer Strachan told reporters at a news conference.
Same-sex marriage was legalized in Canada in 2005, since then it is estimated that there have been around 200 to 300 cases in which opponents of same-sex marriage have faced some sort of proceedings either through the courts, employment boards or human rights commissions.
In the National Review, Michael Coren, wrote: “once gay marriage becomes law, critics are often silenced by the force of the law.”
One Canadian Christian marriage commissioner was successfully sued for refusing to marry gay couples. There are now moves in Canada to withdraw tax free status from churches who refuse to conduct same-sex marriage ceremonies, and to ban teachers who refuse to teach same-sex marriage in both state and private schools.
A Catholic Bishop from Alberta was charged with human rights violations for writing a letter to local churches outlining the Catholic Churches position on gay marriage.
Coren believes the number affected by the redefinition of marriage will be far higher as it does not take into account those who have been dismissed from jobs casually.
“The rate of firearm homicides per 100,000 population has generally been declining since the mid-1970s and, in 2011, reached its lowest point in almost 50 years.”
The Canadian murder weapon of choice is now the blade.
“An increase in stabbings accounted for virtually the entire increase in homicides in 2011,” the federal data agency said.
It said there were 39 more stabbings in 2011 compared to 2010. Overall, stabbings accounted for 35 per cent of homicides, firearms for 27 per cent, beatings for 22 per cent and strangulation for seven per cent.
Pedophilia is in the same category as homosexuality or heterosexuality. It is a “sexual orientation”… according to two different psychologists testifying before a parliamentary session in Canada.
Doctors Vernon Quinsey and Dr. Hubert Van Gijseghem…
“Pedophiles are not simply people who commit a small offense from time to time but rather are grappling with what is equivalent to a sexual orientation just like another individual may be grappling with heterosexuality or even homosexuality.”
“True pedophiles have an exclusive preference for children, which is the same as having a sexual orientation. You cannot change this person’s sexual orientation. He may, however, remain abstinent.”
“There is no evidence that this sort of preference can be changed through treatment or through anything else.”
President Obama initially rejected plans for the proposed pipeline which caused great concern with the Canadian government, and they began looking at the possibility of exporting the oil to the Asian markets instead. However proposals are now being reconsidered in Washington DC. The pipeline would be the largest infrastructure project in North America and would create many jobs in Canada and the USA, much needed in the current economic climate.
