Jesus in the City Parade yanked?!

Jesus in the city (or not) August 26, 2014 10:22 How did 'Jesus in the City' become the only parade in Toronto to get shut down this summer? The 15th annual Jesus in the City Parade has had it's permits pulled a mere couple of weeks prior to their event due to "construction". Other events are allowed to conduct their parades without interruption, yet the Jesus in the City event is shut down without negotiation or other options given for alternate routes. As indicated in the Sun News coverage above, many people would have long before made travel and accommodation arrangements. This is an unacceptable anti-Christian tactic on the part of Toronto's pro-liberal government. Please ensure that you watch the video above and then place phone calls and send in complaints (whether you are a Christian or not). Think of your favorite cause. If the organizers of your event went through all the work of organizing an event, rented resources, had countless meetings and organized volunteers only to have the city shut down your event arbitrarily without options, wouldn't you be outraged? Wouldn't you speak up? You can find information regarding contacting the mayor of Toronto here - City of Toronto Mayor's Office Update: After public outcry and pressure, there seems to be some action on this, but nothing certain at this point and with very few days until the parade, the organizers of the event are still left under a lot of pressure to try to make this year's parade a reality - Hope for Jesus in the City? Concerned Christians Canada's National Chairman, Jim Blake has contacted the Jesus in the City organizers to look into the matter further. We are hoping that freedom loving citizens of Canada will continue to place pressure on Toronto's city hall until this issue is resolved and the Jesus in the City Parade is given all necessary support by the City to ensure that this event goes on without any additional hitches.

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
