Haldimand "The Law is the Law?"


I hope this makes its way around CANADA several times over!!!

So if the CANADIAN government determines that it is against the law for the words "under God" to be on our money, then, so be it.

And if that same government decides that the "Ten Commandments" are not to be used in or on a government installation, then, so be it.

And since they already have prohibited any prayer in the schools, on which they deem their authority, then so be it.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to be a law abiding Canadian citizen.

I say, "so be it," because I would like to think that smarter people than I are in positions to make good decisions.

I would like to think that those people have the Canadian Public's best interests at heart.


Since we can't pray to God, can't Trust in God and cannot post His Commandments in Government buildings, I don't believe the Government and its employees should participate in the Easter and Christmas.... celebrations which honor the God that our government is eliminating from many facets of Canadian life.

I'd like my mail delivered on Christmas, Good Friday, and Thanksgiving & Easter. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like our Government to be in session on Christmas, Good Friday, Thanksgiving & Easter as well as Sundays. After all, it's just another day.

I'd like ALL Representatives to not have to worry about getting home for the "Christmas Break." After all ~~~it's just another day.

I'm thinking that a lot of my taxpayer dollars could be saved, if all government offices & services would work on Christmas, Good Friday & Easter. It shouldn't cost any overtime since those would be just like any other day of the week to a government that is trying to be "politically correct."

In fact....

I think that our government should work on Sundays (initially set aside for worshipping God...) because, after all, our government says that it should be just another day....

What do you all think????


  1. Donna, this has been around for a long time and I always enjoy reading it.

    It makes perfect sense. However, especially here in Haldimand County, we have been well versed in two tiered decisions. “A rose by any other name is but a rose…..” all that means is that our over paid, over pampered politicians, union protected government employees will simply rename the holiday.

    Christmas morphs into Winter. Easter into Spring. Sunday will simply be legislated into a compulsory day of rest.

    Aren’t we clever creatures?

  2. Thanks for your comment Beth. I thought a few people would enjoy this post. It seems to suit to times.

  3. Based on 2001 Canadian Statistics this is the makeup of the Canadian population by religion:

    Total 29,639,030 100.00%
    Christian 22,553,770 76.09%
    No religion 4,796,325 16.18%
    Muslim 579,640 1.96%
    Jewish 329,995 1.11%
    Buddhist 300,345 1.01%
    Hindu 297,200 1.00%
    Sikh 278,410 0.94%
    Non-denom 40,545 0.14%
    Aboriginal 29,820 0.10%
    Pagan 21,080 0.07%

    Yet we allow those minorities of this country to dictate how our Christian values are to be eroded. When with the 76% of this population wake up and begin to assert its authority over this country?

  4. Lisa thank you for your excellent post! When you see the numbers it really makes you think.
