Proud to be a Canadian???

First, read this article.

Go ahead. I'll still be here when you're done. I'll probably still be fuming, so you have lots of time.

First of all, it's interesting timing because I'm preparing for my Bible study on prayer from the Sermon on the Mount. You know the one. About not praying aloud on street corners and all that.

You never know from a single journalist, but this guy seems to have pretty legit ministry. Finding out you can be arrested on a Canadian street for praying or reading the Bible is a pretty discouraging thing. Six police officers to bring down a preacher who wasn't resisting arrest? The Calgary police force needs to look at it's priorities. And while their at it, the country should take a look at theirs.

All in all, not a good day for Canada.

Reminds me of a comic somebody posted at work a few years ago:

A street corner covered with advertisements for booze and cigarettes, pictures of scantily clad women, "LIVE NUDE GIRLS" prominently displayed, and basically all manner of filth.

The caption underneath read "Which of these things is too offensive to be displayed in public?"

The answer, of course, was the small wreath hanging on a lamppost in the middle with the words "Merry Christmas!" beneath it...

If anyone's interested in voicing their opposition, here's the list of Calgary MP's. The Calgary Police force is not a federal issue, however justice is.®ionId=35&submit.x=8&submit.y=9
