More “justice” from the Anglican Church of Canada

Filed under: Anglican Church of Canada — David Jenkins @ 12:24 pm

The Anglican Church of Canada is, as usual, more interested in left wing political agitation than it is in defending those who, in the face of all opposition, faithfully hold to the faith that the ACoC works hard to suppress in Canada: Christianity.

Thus, it is a partner with Kairos, an organisation which is imploring us to pressure politicians into killing the FTA with Columbia:

Adopt a Liberal: If you live in a NDP/BLOC Riding after writing to your representative, why not consider adopting a Liberal or two to target with a letter of concern. Don’t let the Liberals remain on the fence! Tell them it’s time to take a stand and say NO to the Canada-Colombia FTA ! Some Liberals to consider contacting: Scott Brison, Bob Rae, Marlene Jennings, Mario Silva, Justin Trudeau, John Cannis, and Michael Ignatieff.

Whether free trade would in the long term harm or help Colombia is open to debate: the fact that the ACoC opposes it is one point in its favour. Kairos:

unites churches and religious organizations in a faithful ecumenical response to the call to “do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God” (Micah 6:8)

A not unworthy cause; and one that would naturally wish to concentrate at least some effort on countries that persecute Christians. Kairos’s “countries of concern are as follows: Congo (DR), Columbia, Palestine and Israel and Sudan; that’s it.

Here  – from World Watch List – are the countries where Christians are most vigorously persecuted:


Does anyone still think that Kairos is seriously interested in justice?

  1. Killing the Canada-Colombia FTA would hurt Colombians far more than it would us. What does Kairos have against Colombians?
