So many letter writers have explained how this land is made up of immigrants. May be we should turn to our history books and point out to people why today’s Canadian is not willing to accept the new kind of immigrant any longer.And there was no political correctness. No desire to overcompensate for the "tyranny of the majority" by instituting a nasty tyranny of the minorities.
Back in 1900 when there was a rush from all areas of Europe to come to Canada, people had to get off a ship and stand in a long line in Halifax and be documented. Some would even get down on their hands and knees and kiss the ground. They made a pledge to uphold the laws and support their new country in good and bad times. They made learning English a primary rule in their new Canadian households and some even changed their names to blend in with their new home. They had waved good bye to their birth place to give their children a new life and did everything in their power to help their children assimilate into one culture.
Nothing was handed to them. No free lunches, no welfare, no labour laws to protect them. All they had were the skills, craftsmanship and desire they had brought with them to trade for a future of prosperity.
If you are a Christian, you cannot say the same things about other groups that so-called minority groups can say about Christians or about other protected groups. According to human rights commissions, an Imam who writes a hateful book about gays, Jews and Christians is a-okay, but a Christian pastor who writes a passionate letter to the editor condemning the tactics of gay activists must endure a lifetime speech ban even in private emails, make a public "confession" and "apology" and pay a crippling fine.The least we can do is simply refuse to cooperate with those who force political correctness on us. Don't buy "happy holidays" cards. Try not to shop at the stores that exclude Christians in their attempts to accommodate everyone else. And of course - reject their "newspeak"; keep using words they're telling you to avoid. When they tell you to say "seasons greetings" instead of "merry Christmas" or when they suggest that instead of asking "are you married" you should say "are you in relationship" - tell them to go... um... in a direction that is not marked on any compass.
This is what I believe is the rationale. Christians are seen to be the majority religion and therefore the ones who have the levers of power. Thus, by definition, they are oppressors, and what they say is uniquely dangerous. I suppose the same thinking goes concerning the white race, and a lot of stupid people conflate the white race with the Christian faith and western civilization.
