Stephen Boissoin Speaks

On The Jan Buterman Case in Alberta

Stephen boissoin wrote this and it was part of a thread in the No Apologies Blog recently:

Catholics have a right to have individuals working for them who are in line with their religious doctrine even if they take government money. Catholics pay millions in taxes.

My children go to a Christian School that is part of our local public school system. It is considered a Christian Alternative Program and there is no doubt that Jesus and scripture are part of the daily culture at that school.

I do not want gays of any sort teaching my transsexuals, transvestites, transgendereds etc. and I would fight tooth and nail to ensure that this did not happen. My tax dollars fund my children's education PLUS there is an additional tuition charged.

Following is an excerpt from the school profile:

In June of 1999 the Red Deer Christian School Society formulated an agreement with Red Deer Public School District # 104 whereby the Red Deer Christian School became a Christian Alternative Program under its direction and as a result this rich tradition continues. In June 2004 Red Deer Christian Alternative Program along with a group of parents, staff and RDPSD board members changed its name to Gateway Christian School. Christian parents still search for schools that will teach their children that the world belongs to God. They want schools that will lead students to understand and heed God’s call to bring justice and restoration to a fallen world. They acknowledge that God calls their children to the research lab, the law office, the political arena, the university, the school board, and the family farm as well as the pulpit and the mission field.
These parents seek schools that look beyond the classroom to the world. They will not settle for Christian schools that retreat from culture or simply add prayer and Bible reading to a public school curriculum. Nothing short of scripture guiding all of life and learning will do. Gateway Christian School seeks to be such a school within the Red Deer Public System, as an Alternative Program School.

What is occurring that is causing so much damage is the social engineering that is confusing Christians and even Christian leaders en masse. Christians are being duped into believing that a person is born gay and cannot change and this is causing them great confusion. They don't know what to believe because church leadership at large is also confused and brushes the issue off as just another one of many issues. It is not just another issue. It is a major attack against Christianity in our day. The gay lobby and those that sympathize with them are doing more damage to the very foundation and security of the Christian institution than any other social moral issue. All others can be dealt with without interference i.e a minister can choose not to perform a marriage if he feels that the couple is not prepared or in line with scripture BUT he risks much by not performing a marriage due to sexual orientation or gender related issues. Imagine this scenario shoved on a minister: a female who was a male but has since had a sex change operation and wants to marry another man. If that minister says no....bang..they can take him to the Commission or Court. This must be aggressively fought against for the sake of the institutionalized church and society. The Church needs to get its head out of the sand, get united and get prepared. Not doing so IS causing the deterioration of the churches foundation in our society.

Sure the church can go underground....remain behind closed doors...solemnize marriages that are not recognized by the government etc. BUT we have come too far to go back to this and anyone who thinks that we should or must is completely ignorant and bordering on being a fool.

Come on people!!!

There was a second part to this, which was a note sent by Stephen to leaders at the school, and I will reproduce this later, as it too is pertinent.

Just so you are aware, while in fulltime ministry, both inside and outside of the church, I have worked with homosexuals by the dozens. I have met many whom I befriended and can speak highly of in many ways. I have also been involved in the Human Rights arena for the last seven plus years while defending my right to freedom of speech. During this time I have had more indepth discussions with homosexuals than I wish to recall. I do not speak out of ignorance here. Regardless how passive a gay activist or supporter of the agenda/ideology may be is truly irrelevant, especially when impressionable young children and youth are involved. Even the subtlest propagation of such a lifestyle is detrimental to the holistic health of an individual and to society at large. Having a teacher who was once a woman and has been manufactured into the appearance of a man instruct Christian children, is an abomination EVEN IF the details are never discussed. In this instance permittance denotes acceptance and causes confusion about right and wrong.

In regards to your comments about a Christian, atheist etc proselytizing….this happens often in the public arena and that is where all ideas should be treated equal and vigorously debated anyways. If you wish to throw your child into the mix…feel free…but accept that at some point they will here an abundance of conflicting opinion.

My children were sent to a Christian school where Christian values are the only ideology taught and where Christian ethics and behaviour are promoted and expected.

In a country like Canada, we should have the right, as should other religions, to set up educational institutions where our unique values can be propagated and protected. These institution should have access to limited amounts of tax dollars. I completely understand the need for legislation that protects the rights of individuals such as protections against discrimination etc. At the same time, a tax funded religious institution should have the right to have and enforce a statement of faith and lifestyle agreement. You cannot and should not separate religion from legislation in an attempt to make everything accessible for every individual. To do so means that secular government (which consists of people) will inevitably impose bias on certain people groups. Exactly what we see occurring today. Religious beliefs should be protected as they are a fundamental part of life for millions of people, whether one is atheist, agnostic or theistic….we have the right to believe and to have our beliefs protected.

The governments attempt to make a system that make all things accessible for all people is backwards thinking and is a serious infringement on human rights and protections.

We should have a society where if you are a round peg, you look for a round hole instead of one that grinds the heck out of every hole so it will accommodate every peg.

Gays have started pro-gay churches. They have created pro-gay theology and if they want to teach in Christian institutions then they should start one that fits and supports their own unique beliefs. Instead they are forcing themselves in places where they are not wanted and we are told we have no right and have to accept them BECAUSE we are being told that they are born this way.

Well spoken and deserving of another posting at another time, since the comments are seldom seen.

It is worthy of being seen.
