Pastor Coates released, hearing pending

Earlier this month, we alerted you to a Canadian pastor who had been arrested and placed in jail for holding church services after the government ordered him to cease.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have been holding GraceLife Church Pastor James Coates since March 15, after he refused to agree to a bail release condition that he stop holding church services.  Pastor Coates remained firm in his religious conviction to obey God rather than man.

Since that time, the government’s prosecutors have agreed to release Pastor Coates and withdraw all but one of the charges against him.  That one charge is for allowing more than 15% of his church members to attend Sunday worship services.

According to Pastor Coates’ attorneys, he is expected to be released today and will be challenging the remaining charge in court in May, forcing the government to prove why it has the right to limit congregational worship.

Pastor Coates is a hero of the faith and deserves our continued support and prayers. Rather than go away quietly, Pastor Coates will continue to challenge the government’s immoral laws threatening religious freedom.

Our AntiAmerican Law Makers Are Attempting To Break The LAW That Our ForeFathers Laid Down

This is plainly AntiAmerican activity by our Law Makers, as they plan to break our laws spelled out in The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
Every single one should be impeached and recalled, then jailed in Cuba!

Tell Congress to vote against Nancy
Pelosi’s radical Equality Act

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
Robert StrongBow

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will soon attempt to pass the radical Equality Acta bill designed to wield a wrecking ball to religious liberty.  The bill has nothing to do with equality, but everything to do with punishing Christians’ religious liberty.

The deceptively named Equality Act passed the Democratic controlled House in 2019 when 8 Republicans voted for the bill and 16 Republicans refused to vote against the bill.  The Democratic party, now having a majority in both chambers, as well as the presidency, are attempting to pass the bill again this week.

Take action now by sending your U.S. Representative a message to vote “NO” on the Equality Act.

TAKE ACTION NOW

The bill is yet to be introduced, but that won’t prevent House Democrats from advancing the anti-religious liberty legislation by violating regular House rules, bypassing the normal committee process, and going straight to a floor vote.

According to a February 16 letter to members of Congress, House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said, “Members should be aware that the House may need to remain in session through the weekend next week to [consider] . . . . the Equality Act, which will end legal discrimination against LGBTQ Americans.”

This destructive legislation goes far beyond the recent and disastrous Supreme Court decision to add sexual orientation and gender identity as a civil right for government employment purposes under Title VII.  If the House and Senate were to pass Speaker Pelosi’s bill and Democratic President Joe Biden were to sign it into law, it would unleash radical liberals to attack those whose faith teaches that marriage is only between one man and one woman and that sexual identity of male and female is a fixed, biological fact.

By government edict, business owners, employees, and customers alike will be subject to a radical LGBT agenda:

  • Female business owners, customers, and employees would be forced to share spaces in restrooms and dressing rooms with men who claim to be women.
  • Women’s sports would be forced to open up to the participation of men who claim to be women.
  • Health care providers and professionals would be forced to perform gender transition procedures (sex changes) and provide medical services (hormone therapy) that would violate their moral and religious convictions.
  • Adoption and foster care agencies will be forced to place children into same sex households and into homes of individuals suffering from gender confusion.  College and professional sports stadiums would be required to open their restrooms to either sex.

The Democratic Party has clearly laid out its intent to force Christians to submit to radical sexual deviancyThe Party’s platform has stated, ‘We support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate.”

The “progressive vision” of religious liberty for Democrats was made clear by Chai Feldblum, the former commissioner of the Obama administration’s Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Feldblum staked out the view of the Democratic Party when she said:

“I’m having a hard time coming up with any case in which religious liberty should win. …  Sexual liberty should win in most cases.  There can be a conflict between religious liberty and sexual liberty, but in almost all cases the sexual liberty should win because that’s the only way that the dignity of gay people can be affirmed in any realistic manner.” (Emphasis added.)

Take action now by sending your U.S. representative a message to vote “NO” on the Equality Act.
