Canada’s sharia law on hold till April

From Josh Craddock at Citizen Go:

Dear Denyse,

Good news! Your voices were heard and the coalition that formed to pass M-103 is beginning to crumble. As you probably know by know, Parliament DID NOT VOTE on M-103 on February 16th; instead the vote has been deferred until April. … SIGN the petition.

SHARE the petition.

I’m torn. In a way, I would like every airhead Trudeau fan (but that’s redundant, isn’t it?) to experience the full force of oppressive religious law.

Let every abortion fanatic who sneered at evangelical Christians trying to save babies (oughtta be a law against them!) discover religious rule under which it becomes an offence to even make fact-based, defensible statements that offend some religious authorities. Meanwhile,

The Conservatives (Tories) introduced their own motion in response to M-103, which omits the problematic term “Islamophobia” and includes a broad cross-section of religious communities.

Most religious Canadians are not asking for this. Most accept a free society where people can say what they like about the divine.

Unfortunately, the Liberals shot it down. This exposes the fact that M-103 isn’t actually about condemning religious discrimination or systemic racism, it’s about prioritizing Islam and providing it a preferential place in Parliament.

Reality check: On the other hand, maybe the Conservatives are showing unaccustomed cleverness here. At least the potheads on the government payroll have been warned. Sometimes, it is all one can do, besides wait.

    Good points in the preamble, but for one.

    ALLAH has nothing to do with the divine.

    ALLAH is a symbol for a barbaric hell on earth. Nothing divine about that.

  • Oracle9

    Islam has little to do with anything “divine”.

    When we figure out that Islam is more a political social system than anything else, we may be able to make the first tentative steps to protecting our civilization.

      “We” have known what islam is for over 1400 years. The problem is that “we” keep forgetting.

      • Oracle9

        Yes “we” do keep forgetting. 95% of Canadians is a close estimate.

  • Jaedo Drax

    If only there was some doctor in the house who could look up in DSM V and read out the section on “islamophobia”.

    Signed and forwarded to friends. Thanks.

  • barryjr

    I work with some Muslims and a couple have become friends. They happen to agree with the petition, why should any group be singled out for special treatment?

    • moraywatson

      If your workmates are bona fide muslims, they have not become your friends.

  • Jaedo Drax

    Also, repeal section 296 of the criminal Code.

  • jt

    I don’t think they expected the backlash there getting and much it from mulims.

    • Tooth&Claw

      A lot of Muslims left because they wanted more than a society under Islam can give them. They left the oppressive governments and social control of their own societies, they don’t want it back.

    Actually, the date for the M-103 debate has been changed from 05 April to 21 March with the vote taking place on the 22nd. This can only be seen as a Liberal Government ploy to get’r done before their Party unity cracks on the issue. Also noteworthy that the budget will be presented on the 22nd as well.

    Already signed & posted to friends and family.

  • gaylord ponce

    Just another cheap trick by that Asshole Trudeau to lock up the Muzzie vote in the next election. This prick is fooling nobody.

  • We do not need blasphemy laws, nor has anyone shelved Motion 103. The government will wait as long as it can before passing it. They will ram it through when no one is paying attention and/or before a House of Commons break.

    • Tooth&Claw

      Let’s hope that doesn’t happen. These liberal bastards need a reality check.

      • People need to park themselves at the House of Commons on the 21st and 22nd.

        That usually scares some people.

  • Christine Marois

    They changed the date and it was deferred to MARCH 21.
