“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

Although most of HumanLifeMatters blog readers are American, I want to bring readers attention to the following link by the Canadian Association For Reformed Political Action. If this can happen in Alberta Canada, it can happen anywhere.

"Speak Up! Alberta Forces All Alberta Schools to Accept GSAs"

It speaks directly to the Canadian province of Alberta's recent passing of Bill 10 for Gay Straight Alliances (GSAs). But the Bill doesn't stop with imposing GSAs on all schools (including faith centered schools); it potentially infringes on faithful Christian families (not to mention Muslim and other families of faith). Bill 10 is an assault on the very the multicultural, pluralistic and tolerant society Canada's claims to be.

In a previous blog I wrote about a problem with GSAs not being inclusive in protections against bullying. That is one reason why Alberta's government should not have passed Bill 10. Governments must support anti-bullying alliances that do not give special recognition to one small group of vulnerable students. That is not the only problem with Bill 10. The ARPA points to its deeper and darker flaws.

It should be noted that Bill 10 was put through the provincial
legislature by Education Minister Gordon Dirks who is an
Gordon Dirks
evangelical Christian. He betrayed faithful Christian families for the sake of political gain.  
I know Gordon Dirks and even spoke about Life issues at his former Calgary church, at his invitation. 

I am deeply saddened at his betrayal since leaving the church. I am even more saddened for Christian families.
