Helping Gays and Christians

First off, I think this is a good initiative as long as we are really helping those who are at risk.

Ottawa has pledged $100,000 to support persecuted gay and lesbian refugees who flee to Canada.

Immigration Minister Jason Kenney announced Thursday that the funding will launch a pilot project in partnership with the Rainbow Refugee Committee, a Vancouver-based group that helps persecuted gay, lesbian, transgendered and bisexual people make refugee claims.

Saving those who are threatened with death is a good thing. Now I want those Christians who are being threatened to also get help.

Thousands of Christians have been forced to flee their homes in Western Ethiopia after Muslim extremists set fire to roughly 50 churches and dozens of Christian homes.

At least one Christian has been killed, many more have been injured and anywhere from 3,000 to 10,000 have been displaced in the attacks that began March 2 after a Christian in the community of Asendabo was accused of desecrating the Koran.

Why can't these Christians be allowed to get the same protection from our government as gays? Both groups are in danger, both groups need to be given refugee status in Canada.

It will not happen as long as we have idiots like this:

“I want to shoot everyone in this room,” a McGill University student recently announced using his online Twitter feed, claiming he had surreptitiously “infiltrated” what was in fact an open film screening of Indoctrinate U, hosted by Conservative McGill and Libertarian McGill. “I should have brought an M16,” read another of his messages. In short toxic tweets, the student called the conservative gathering “a Zionist meeting” and a “Satanist ritual,” while sprinkling in insults about Jews.
Yikes, we have a serious nut case here, but I bet that they will be coddled and hugged by the "progressives".

I do not want more boat loads of illegal immigrants showing up on our shores. We have enough "real" refugees to deal with, let alone illegal cue jumpers, who are not really refugees. Canada has opened it's doors to all who want to come here for a better life. It's time for us to stop taking in the drug dealers and unemployable ingrates.

Funny how the left will help gays but bitterly oppose any help for Christians in Muslim countries. Why are those on the left so scared of Christians but supportive of Muslims who stone women to death? It continues to puzzle me because the Liberals are trying to portray themselves as the family guys, while the lefty feminists ignore the human rights of women in Arab countries.

I think both gays and Christians need Canada's protection.

How do you know they can't? Are they immigrating to Canada? Or is their plight something that can be addressed domestically?

I'll take that bet.

"...let alone illegal cue jumpers..."

WOW! How specialized are they? How can we give jobs to foreign cue jumpers when our own cue jumpers are unemployed? Enough, I say!!!

So we should invade other countries to save the Christians and gays there?
Because you can already get refugee status here if you are Christian or gay (assuming you would be persecuted in the old country for either of these).

What Minister Kenney is doing is filling a gap in the way refugees are sponsored. If you are fleeing religious persecution, there are likely churches here that will sponsor you. But there isn't really a gay church, so Rainbow Refugee Committee was born. Unlike most churches, they are not a charity so they don't already have government support as the churches do.
