He doesn’t need to apologize! The outcry from those who wanted the Government to stop funding to Crossroads is louder and outnumbers those Evangelical voices screaming for an apology. While you have your freedom of religion when you accept taxpayers money for programs, you open your organization up to scrutiny and yes sometimes there are also conditions. Like for instance one that would require that Crossroads does not express any opinion in Uganda or Canada on the issue of the law Uganda would like to pass that would cost Open Homosexuals their lives!!
He absolutely needs to apologize. Though I disagree with the religious stance on homosexuality; to call an organization that holds such beliefs as “un-Canadian” is un-Canadian in of itself. Thus, it follows anyone who holds similar beliefs, that homosexuality is a sin, is “un-Canadian.”
Therefore it follows further anyone who believes abortion is a sin or murder, must be “un-Canadian” as well. Anyone who expresses a point a view, as they are entitled through our Constitution, that is different from Mulcair’s beliefs, must therefore be “un-Canadian.”
Furthermore, anyone who accepts the catechisms of the Catholic Church, must therefore be “un-Canadian” and anyone holding those beliefs who helps those in need must therefore forefeit their Constitutional rights of Freedom of Religion and Freedom of Speech, in order to be “Canadian.”
I grow tired of the NDP’s anti-religion stance. To be consistent, however, Mr. Mulcair should look into those former separatists in his own party to determine whether or not they hold personal bias including but not limited to any indication of “pur laine” or xenophobic beliefs found predominantly in the Parti Quebecois.
TO be fair here Mr. Mulclair said that Crossroads view on Homosexuality goes against Canadian Values….he did not utter the words Un-Canadian! Typicall QMI reporting twist the words of anyone that is not right wing nut job Conservative
