Do we need a Christianity Awareness Month?
The Ontario public school system was founded in the mid-nineteenth century, and rooted in a broad-based approach among various Protestant denominations. Egerton Ryerson was its first Superintendent of a long-standing Christian Heritage.
Thanks to a successful lawsuit, since 1988, the Lord’s Prayer and the reading of Scripture has been banned from Ontario public schools. It was argued at the time that the exemption provision effectively stigmatized children and coerced them into a religious observance which was offensive to their parents.
Since that time, not only have Christian parents been forced to place their children in a neutered public space, in school districts like the Toronto District School Board they have for some time been required to participate in an Islamic History Month.
What began as ‘awareness’ is now, apparently, a matter of heritage. Thanks to an activist Muslim community, since 2016, the whole of Ontario now celebrates an Ontario Heritage Month.
The continual rewriting of the past in order to disestablish Christianity from public life has taken place with the consent of all political parties in large part because Christians have refused to speak as missionaries within a culture that no longer acknowledges the truths of the Christian faith, and in which most people are totally ignorant.
The case recorded in this article refers to the confusion of a Christian believer with a Muslim is in London, England, but given the degree of confusion about Canada’s Christian Heritage in Canada, is it not time that Canada as a whole had a Christian Heritage Month?
The status quo is now misleading, discriminatory, and exclusively promotes the Muslim religion.
No one benefits from this ignorance.
