    Do Canadians have a Bill of Rights in their federal constitution like we Americans do in ours?

    The idea of such a thing happeing in the United States is rather far fetched, imo.

    Yes, I believe it is coming to America. I think about what is going on in California with the gay marriage movement and how those who support that movement want to do away with home schools and probably, at some point, Christian schools.

    I don't believe the big question is whether or not it is coming, I think the big question is how will Christians respond. Will Christians respond, like Daniel, with boldness and faith? Or will Christians with complaining and crying? I pray it is the first. All Christians in America need to be ready to stand up. I believe we are going to find ourselves in a situation in this country, maybe very soon, were being a Bible believing Christian will be illegal. We need to be ready to preach the truth in an uncompromising way. We need to be ready to stand up to the ungodly leaders of our nation and, if need be, we need to be ready to go to jail. Just like the apostles, we need to preach the truth no matter what our government says.

    I turned my volume up all the way and could just barely hear him. I didn't feel like straining my ears to hear it.

    From the viewpoint of an evangelical Christian

    From the viewpoint of an evangelical Christian, I would not support the man's posting of the derogatory Muslim cartoon. While I understand that this thread is posted to highlight the loss of freedoms in Canada, we Christians should be reaching out to the lost in Islam, not making fun of their beliefs.

    I believe Paul was our example of what to do in the face of various religions.....talk about the God whom they have not met as yet.

    Acts 17:22 ¶ Then Paul stood in the midst of Mars’ hill, and said, Ye men of Athens, I perceive that in all things ye are too superstitious.
    23 For as I passed by, and beheld your devotions, I found an altar with this inscription, TO THE UNKNOWN GOD. Whom therefore ye ignorantly worship, him declare I unto you.

    Are we facing fewer freedoms in our country, yes, I agree. I do not believe, though, it was wise to enrage the Muslim world with the cartoon. This is NOT the way to reach Muslims for the Lord.

    I believe we're about one decade from prison sentences for Biblical preachers in America. "Quit ye like men" "Watch, stand fast in the faith, be brave, be strong"
