Canadian Christian School Shut Down For Teaching Bible Verses
By Jonathon Van Maren May 03, 2018
If you had asked any Canadian conservative five years ago if Alberta would be the main battleground in the war over the rights of Christians to pass their values and their beliefs on to their children, they would have laughed. And yet, here we are.
The Alberta NDP wants to transform the Albertan school system before their time in power runs out, and Education Minister David Eggen bears an enormous animus towards Christians schools, which he will exercise to the full extent of his power until he gets the boot. And now this, from the National Post:
An Alberta Christian school that clashed with its school division over teaching certain Bible verses may be forced to shut down. The Battle River School Division voted last week to close Cornerstone Christian Academy in Kingman, Alta., southeast of Edmonton at the end of the school year.
The relationship started to fray about a year ago when the school division asked the school to stop teaching certain Bible verses that discussed sexuality. School division trustees said that they believed the verses could contravene Alberta's human rights code.
Just to be clear here: A school board believes, and stated openly, that passages of the Bible could be in violation of Alberta's human rights code. Their response to this, of course, was to ask that those passages no longer be mentioned, rather than considering the fact that there could be some overreach on the part of those drafting or interpreting that human rights code.
Christians have been warning that this could happen for some time, and those warnings were always scoffed off as paranoia.
At the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:10-11

And California is doing something similar....but even selling Bibles with 'offensive' sexual verses might become illegal.
I thought is was funny but very very sad when the writer mentioned how some 'Christians' were saying they were only interested in the 'forgiveness' parts....but take away all the 'offensive' verses, and what's to forgive?
I mean eventually a thief could find any verses on stealing offensive, and one who murders, would find verses against murder offensive, and a person who worships any type of idol, and one who takes God's name in vain, and on and on.
I wonder how much longer before God will rapture His people/church/believers?
