Responsible Parents To Be Turned Into Criminals
- For Immediate Release -

(Calgary) Concerned Christians Canada Inc (CCC) is very alarmed that Canada's Liberal majority run Senate has passed a bill that will outlaw spanking and charge parents with assault for doing so. The bill sponsored by Liberal Senator Celine Hervieux-Payette is expected to go before the House of Commons in the fall session.

"This new bill looks to dismantle parental authority, apply further pressure on the family, and remove an important corrective tool for responsible parents, not to mention further affront religious freedoms. The Bible instructs parents to discipline their children and that failure to do so demonstrates hatred toward them (Proverbs 13:24). The Bible also teaches that "fools despise wisdom and discipline" (Proverbs 1:7). It also states that, "To discipline and reprimand a child produces wisdom, but a mother is disgraced by an undisciplined child" (Proverbs 29:15). I have 4 children and each child is different, one child needs a spank once in a while and others change their behaviour with other methods. Loving parents have no desire to abuse their children, but they also want them to understand and respect authority figures, and systems of leadership. This bill is nothing more than an attack on the family and even more so people of faith" stated Jim Blake, National Chairman of Concerned Christians Canada Inc (CCC).

Concerned Christians Canada Inc (CCC) has already started contacting Christians about this bill and will continue to do so throughout the summer. The CCC will be contacting other organizations as well in an effort to encourage Canadians to communicate with their MP about this issue. The organization is currently re-vamping its website and preparing an action campaign prompting citizens to contact their Member of Parliament via fax, phone, snail mail and / or e-mail.

"It does not surprise me that something this top down has emerged from the Liberal Party, but I am getting frustrated with their hypocrisy. On the one hand Liberals say that the government does not belong in the homes of Canadians when it comes to sexual behaviour that negatively impacts children. While on the other they have no issue stripping parents of one of the important tools that contribute to raising law abiding and authority respecting citizens. This issue alone will bleed votes away from the Liberals to other family respecting parties. I agree with NDP MP Peter Stoffer when he stated that spanking teaches that there are consequences. Again some children need a spanking and others merely need a discussion, the decision should be left up to the parents and not the state", Concluded Blake.

All glory goes to the living God, maker of the heavens and the earth, for He alone is worthy of all glory and honor and praise. I consider the sufferings of this age not worthy to be compared to what is to come for those who place their faith in the King of kings and persevere in faith, day by day, until the end.

For as the heaven is high above the earth, so great is his mercy toward them that fear him.

As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.

Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear him.

For he knoweth our frame; he remembereth that we are dust.

As for man, his days are as grass: as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth.

For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone; and the place thereof shall know it no more.

But the mercy of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him, and his righteousness unto children's children;

To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his commandments to do them.

Psalm 103:11-18
