U.S. leaders sound alarm over Canada’s new pro-abortion loyalty oath for businesses

While the eyes of freedom-loving Americans are focused on the Masterpiece Cakeshop case now before the United States Supreme Court, a serious threat to religious liberty has suddenly erupted in our neighbor to the north.

The Liberal government of Justin Trudeau has just announced it will demand – in writing – fealty to transgender and abortion “rights” from employers before they will be allowed to receive summer job grants for students.

Both the job and the organization’s core mandate must be in line with the Canadian government’s mandated ideological beliefs in order to participate in the program.  

“This is a jaw-dropping act of discrimination against faith-based employers and nonprofits,” said Jack Fonseca, senior political strategist for Campaign Life Coalition, excoriating the Trudeau Liberals for their blatant anti-Christian bias.  “More and more, Justin Trudeau is transforming the Liberal Party into a hate group against Christians.”

Canada is quickly becoming a cautionary tale for Americans as the principle of religious liberty is tangibly suppressed, being traded for a form of government totalitarianism made possible by sixty years of sexual revolution.

Americans Take Notice, Express Deep Concern

Some Americans have taken notice and are expressing concern about the heavy handed, discriminatory policy.

“Canada is marching straight down the path toward a new form of authoritarianism we are seeing pop up in Western countries in recent years – one that commands obedience to State ideologies in the area of human sexuality,” said Travis Weber, Director of the Center for Religious Liberty at the Family Research Council.  “This recent action is but another step down that path. I hope this is a wake-up call for those in the United States who think we will never get there. While our First Amendment for now guards against many of these dangers, there are always those trying to chip away at it, and we must be ever watchful for similar encroachments on freedom here at home.”
