BLACK TUESDAY - June 28, 2005
The Government has attempted to re-define an institution that it has no authority to alter. As such, I do not recognize this legislation, and I will not recognize any same sex couple as being "married". Marriage is an institution defined by God alone, and in accordance with the teachings of the Bible, God's Holy Word, I do not recognize such unions as valid.
Today, hereby referred to as "Black Tuesday", marks the beginning of the end for Canada as we know it. History shows that as a nation declines morally, its end is near. Let it also be stated that the enacting of this law will result in the imprisonment of Christians within the next few years. As one who may enter Church leadership sometime in the future, and one who may be authorized to perform marriages, this law may end up in my own incarceration. Nevertheless, may God's will be done.
My Declaration - (to be read at my court hearing at a date yet to be determined)
On this day, "Black Tuesday", June 28, 2005, I, "Christian Conservative", declare that in accordance with God's Holy Word, the Holy Bible, I do not and will not recognize the validity of same sex marriage.
In accordance with the religious freedoms proclaimed within Bill C-38, it is my right. Prime Minister Paul Martin has indicated that religious freedoms will be protected, and he is to be called as a witness to this fact. Any overturning of this right by any court or tribunal is in direct conflict with the religious freedoms protected under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
We acknowledge that at a future date, these rights will however be ignored for the "greater good", and let it be known that at every stage of debate, opponents of Bill C-38 warned that the protections for religious freedoms within Bill C-38 were not sufficient.
In other words, we were right. Bill C-38 will in fact be used to target those of faith.
