Banned and Attacked for Questioning a “Gay Loonie”
Ever since we launched our first “Gay Loonie” petition, we have received an unprecedented level of opposition from the liberal left. After our peaceful protest in front of the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa on April 12th, this opposition has only increased.
Here is just a sampling of the vile and hate-filled comments we have been receiving on a daily basis:
“A grossly anti-Canadian group lacking even a modicum of rational thought. Enjoy the new loonies.” – Jesse James.
“This organization promotes disinformation and the propagation of uninformed rhetoric based on discrimination, fear and hatred. This page should be closed down.” – Jean-Philippe Gavina.
“Hateful Backward thinking group of people.” – Alan R. Warren.
“Nice to see hate-spreading bigots are still alive and well! People like Mr. Cooke and the rest of the bigots spewing their hate are a black mark on Canada.” – Cynical Guy.
“Many Canadians are upset?…Well David, if that’s true, (which it most certainly IS NOT), those PARTICULAR HOMOPHOBIC ASSHOLES should go F**K THEMSELVES doncha think?… HOPEFULLY you are the worst of the worst… People like you are a putrid blight on our Country’s egalitarian reputation… you vile, disgusting POS.” – Mark Marsh.
These leftists call us “haters” and “bigots”, but based on their own words, I think it is obvious who the real haters and bigots are!
In addition to these vulgar and vicious comments, we have now been subjected to the PC Police at Facebook. Just recently, our Facebook post unveiling the new design of our one dollar coin was banned. Facebook has deemed it “hate speech” and removed it from their site. Here is our post and what they said:
Apparently, it is hateful to critique a pro-LGBT dollar coin, but it is NOT hateful to shut down Canadian Christians for sharing their perspective.
I have even received a violent personal threat, concerning which I had to contact the police and file a report.
As we are mocked and attacked more and more, here at CitizenGO Canada, I am reminded of the words of our Lord Jesus: “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.”
I am also reminded of the attacks our brothers and sisters face all around the world: the bombings of churches in Sri Lanka killing and injuring hundreds of Christians, the plight of Asia Bibi in Pakistan, the capture of Leah Sharibu in Nigeria, the growing persecution of the church in China…
I realize that the opposition we face here in Canada is just a drop in the bucket.
But what is our response to all this opposition? Do we hide in our churches? Do we run to the hills? Do we shut down and shut up? Or do we wake up and rise up? Do we step up our efforts to “speak the truth in love”?
I believe all of this opposition only proves we are on the right track. Because if we were having no impact our enemies on the left would simply leave us alone.
As George Orwell put it: “The further a society drifts from the truth, the more it will hate those that speak it.”
And so, in response to all these attacks, I am asking you to do three things…
1. If you are a believer, please pray for us and our vital ministry.
2. Join us in speaking the truth in love with more boldness than ever. You can do that by signing our new petition and joining our “gay loonie” campaign.
3. Consider making a donation to support our efforts.
Thank you for your encouragement and support!
