What’s Good For Uganda Is Good For Canada?

Jim Burroway

December 6th, 2009

That’s what the College of Prayer thinks. Two members of College of Prayer introduced the notorious “Kill Gays” bill in Uganda’s Parliament, with the full blessing of the head of the College of Prayer’s Ugandan campus. Now Bruce Wilson at Talk To Action has found that College of Prayer Canada head Rev. David Chotka wants to plant some seeds for Ottawa:

When the team returned to North America, they received a phone call from David Chotka, COP Canada. David said, “I have three-twelve members of the Canadian Parliament who have heard about what God is doing in Uganda and would like to attend the Parliamentary COP [College of Prayer -- ed.] in Uganda next year. They are interested in bringing the College of Prayer to the Canadian Parliament.” It seems that God continues to expand our spheres of influence. The extraordinary favor of God is resting upon us. All glory to His name!

While I doubt that this will bear much fruit in Canada, this is indicative of COP’s ambition. Great catch by Bruce Wilson.

How much do you want to bet that, if this is true, that these memebers of parliament are right-wing conservatives nut-jobs, probably from the western (the mega polluting oil producing tar sands) province Alberta (a right wing haven of nut-jobs if there were any (see the book: Stupid to the last drop”)

Every time the wingnuts shoot their mouths off the Conservative Party of Canada loses popularity. Even though they form the government over 60% of Canadians voted for left-of-centre parties.

Canada as much less of an overt religious presence in politics than the U.S. does. Canada also has a Charter of Rights and Freedoms that the Supreme Court has determined applies to gay people.

Good golly! I moved ‘up here’ from the US to get AWAY from these wacky people! Hopefully their words will fall on deaf ears.

Fundamentalist Christians are being made a part of our current gov’t in Canada to a degree that’s never been seen before

so yes I am very concerned about their influence on this gov’t and its policies though I seriously doubt they’ll ever be able to roll back the equality rights we have achieved here in Canada due our Charter of Rights but they could affect funding of LGBT festivals and other social programs deemed un-Christian by these folks.

As for uganda, boycott their coffee. It is used as a coffee filler in most brands of coffee and is one of their major crops.

For the MPs in canadian government just send the canadian people a list of their names and we will question them ourselves.
