(a) Seeing their social conservatism, reinforces my a priori belief that social conservatives’ attempt to invite newcomers from non-Western, non-Christian cultures to join them in existing conservative parties is a non-starter, because (a) they will instead generally vote for their interests in terms of bringing more of their own kind over by supporting pro-immigration and particularly liberal and leftist parties that are guaranteed to keep the floodgates open, and (b) now they have a choice to vote for their own kind of parties like this one, which represent social conservatism coupled with their religious worldview as well; why would they bother to join forces with white, Christian social conservatives in pre-existing conservative parties?
(b) I see they reference the ‘dead letter’ portion of the Charter, the part that legal experts will tell you has no actual bearing on our laws; you know, the preamble recognizing that Canada is built on principles recognizing the supremacy of God and the rule of law. Kudos to them for doing so, taking it seriously. We should, too. We should actually do better and go back to the preamble in the Canadian Bill of Rights, 1960:
The Parliament of Canada, affirming that the Canadian Nation is founded upon principles that acknowledge the supremacy of God, the dignity and worth of the human person and the position of the family in a society of free men and free institutions;
Affirming also that men and institutions remain free only when freedom is founded upon respect for moral and spiritual values and the rule of law;
And being desirous of enshrining these principles and the human rights and fundamental freedoms derived from them, in a Bill of Rights which shall reflect the respect of Parliament for its constitutional authority and which shall ensure the protection of these rights and freedoms in Canada:
Therefore Her Majesty, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate and House of Commons of Canada, enacts as follows:
And instead of it being a ‘dead letter’, it should carry the force of law just as much as all the rest of the Act does.
Why the hell not?
From their platform:
Principles & PoliciesIslamic Party of Ontario is founded on and will be guided in its policy formation by the following principles:-Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms starts with, “Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law.” The Islamic Party of Ontario believes in “Supremacy of God” and understands that it is our constitutional requirement to make all the rule of laws of Provinces and Federal in obedience and according to the will of God.– Believing in God’s Supremacy means believing in His Oneness, His Authority, and His Obedience in all spheres of life.-God is Himself the GUIDE to set fundamental principles of the outlook of life and practices in private to public life –political, social, education, economy, health, environment, and the justice system. In Quranic term, it is known as DEEN.-God sent Adam to Muhammad (peace be upon all of them), 124,000 messengers and prophets in different eras, nations, and tribes with one DEEN (system of life); that is “Islam”.-The word Islam means “surrender” and “peace”. That means Islam requires surrender to God to attain peace. This is the DEEN taught by all the messengers and prophets from God and to all the nations.-The DEEN of Noah (Nooh), Abraham (Ibrahim), Isaak (Ishaq), Ishmael (Ismail), Jacob (Yaqub), Jonah (Yunus), Moses (Musa), Jesus (Eisa), and Muhammad (p.b.u.h.) are the same, and that is Islam. These messengers are all brothers and sent from the same God.-Islam is the only and oldest DEEN of GOD brought and started by Adam (p.b.u.h.), the first man and the first messenger of God, created by God without mother and father. It is the same DEEN brought by Jesus (p.b.u.h.) before Muhammadﷺ who born without father. It is a misconception that Islam is a “religion” created by Muhammad ﷺ. Islam is the only way to attain peace and justice and provides laws without any prejudice.-We understand and believe that Islam is the native DEEN of Ontario and Canada.
The native religious system of Ontario and Canada?
News to me!
Not believers in relativism, are they…
Nope; they are supremacists for their faith, their way of life.
Understandable; people of any non-syncretist creed, if they truly hold to it, are likewise partisans of their particular faith as the only true one, superior to all the others in that it is true and the others are false.
Of course, not all faiths require their believers to establish global theocracies.
But that one certainly does.
In the long run, then, can any honest observer conclude anything other than that their worldview is incompatible with liberal democracy?
-Islamic Party of Ontario sets its policy of governance, economy, social justice, human dignity, healthcare, family life, environment, and justice, etc. according to the Qur’an and Sunnah.
Straight from their own platform…
Post-Script: Now, it is true we Christians may certainly like some elements of their platform:
-Family System has to be restored to protect the generations to sustain human beings on earth until its natural ends.
-Marriage is a sacred union between a man and woman. The birth of babies of next generation and survival of human species depends on this institution. Majority of Ontarians and Canadians living as single moms and dads are affecting the sound healthy growth of children. If the situation continues, this society will rely hundred percent on immigrants and from the nations where the traditional family system is protected. The Canadian family system and marriage institution must be restored for the survival of coming generations.
-The sexual relationship is only between men and women. This relationship should be protected with a marriage contract by clearly defining rights and responsibilities of both man and woman. They must have to take responsibility for family care and children nourishment. The government should be supportive of this responsible family. They should be given privilege and affordable housing for healthy living and nourishment.
-Allah has created two genders: men and women. Any physical defect in any organ of a person doesn’t change one’s gender identification and sexual orientation. All the communities of all the faiths believe in it; modern science proves it. The concept of “gender identity” or “seven-colour gender” is a false concept.
-The relationship established under a marriage contract is a sacred union between a man and a woman. God made Adam and Eve –not Adam and Steve.
-No artificial and irresponsible approach to stop the birth of children at any stage should be allowed. -We believe in a complete ban on abortion except in a situation when a mother’s life is in danger.
Measures should be taken to stop suicide, including doctor-assisted suicide of patients. All life is precious and trust of God. No one has the right to take his own or another’s life due to depression or disease. It is only God who gives life and can take back the life whenever He wants.
-Obscenity, vulgarity, nudity, and perversion must be checked.
Nevertheless, they mean to impose their Weltanschauung, even as they claim to honour religious freedom.
I for one would prefer that we Canadians get to decide what we want our country to be, and not let The Stranger decide for us.
The men of my own stock,
They may do ill or well,
But they tell the lies I am wanted to,
They are used to the lies I tell;
And we do not need interpreters
When we go to buy or sell.
The men of my own stock,
Bitter bad they may be,
But, at least, they hear the things I hear,
And see the things I see;
And whatever I think of them and their likes
They think of the likes of me.
This was my father’s belief
And this is also mine:
Let the corn be all one sheaf–
And the grapes be all one vine,
Ere our children’s teeth are set on edge
By bitter bread and wine.
So be it.
Not only did Trudeau go to India – which, as PM, isn’t out of the ordinary – but so have ostensible conservatives Andrew Scheer, Jason Kenney, and Patrick Brown, all gone over there to pander. It works, of course: Patrick Brown won Brampton’s mayoral race no doubt because of the contacts he made a year ago over there when he was still Ontario’s Tory leader; no way can a white person win Brampton’s mayoralty without Indian support…
Anyway, I expect a Liberal PM to go to India and pander; I’m disappointed when supposed rightists do likewise, but I’m certainly not surprised, when they do…
But you know who hasn’t gone over there to pander (far as I know and as far as I can tell in attempting to fact check this)?
There’s a man who still has some honour, and who is not a traitor to his people.
Some good news, for the first Sunday in Advent:
Hoorah to the Italian government, standing up for your people and their tradition!
