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.
