Canada offers a life lesson to a timid, quiet Church

CAS OntarioA longtime Canadian activist has been warning for years that Christians are the enemy of the State, and now an allegation of outright discrimination in Ontario is highlighting that ongoing antagonism.  

Hoping to foster a child in their home, husband and wife Levi and Amanda denBok applied with Children's Aid Services (CAS) but were informed via letter that their religious beliefs disqualified them, The Christian Post reported.

The couple shared the rejection letter in a Facebook post, describing how they were asked by a CAS adopting agent what church they attend and if they believe the Bible is true.

In the interview, the husband and wife were asked: "Are you one of those churches that still believes the Bible is true?"

The agent informed the couple that the Bible was written "thousands of years ago" and the world has since changed, the couple claims. 

McVety

Dr. Charles McVety, who leads Canada Christian College as president, says the married couple's beliefs don't match the supposed "values" of the province of Ontario and its leaders. Yet it's widely known, he says, that CAS favors same-sex couples as foster parents over religious couples.

Such a discriminatory practice would be an eye-opening revelation, since the argument from same-sex couples has been excluding them from fostering children is discriminatory.

McVety has long warned OneNewsNow readers that Canada's far-left leaders view Christianity and its followers as the enemy of progress.

"There is no neutral ground now. There is no hiding in the corner," he warned as recently as August.

Bible 1Asked how Canada got to the point that the government can reject Christians on the basis of their faith, McVety says an apathetic Church led by cowardly leaders is to blame.

The same is happening in the U.S., he warns.

According to Levi denBok's account of the back-and-forth conversation with CAS, he and his wife caved to the agency over the issue of spanking in the home and even assured the case worker that if a foster child is homosexual, the denBoks would love the child regardless.

Yet the agency still refused to place a children under their roof. The rejection letter reads:

We also want to let you know that the policies of our agency do not appear to fit with your values and beliefs and therefore, we will be unable to move forward with an approval for your family as a resource home.

"It wasn't enough that we demonstrated that we would love any child that was placed in our home," Levi denBok wrote in his Facebook message. "It wasn't enough that we would provide a safe place for a child to learn and grow. We had to BELIEVE differently. That's not conformity — that's conversion."
