LETTER: BC Liberals should not apologize for advertising in Christian publication

These are ‘attacks by the LGBTQ community and those who have a “progressive” agenda’

Dear Mr. Andrew Wilkinson, and members of the BC Liberal caucus:

I was very disappointed by the apology… because you dared to advertise in a Christian publication. That is a reason to apologize?

You have been bullied and you have surrendered. The LGBTQ community will call us homophobes and accuse us of the very actions they are taking to persecute and bully us for our beliefs and our faith.

And the destruction of our families and our society as we have known it is happening and we have closed our eyes.

The distraction of COVID-19, climate change, riots and ‘racial inequality’ are not the real problems we face.

The real problem is a lack of will to stand up for moral values, to love and respect all people equally, and have the courage to stick to our moral values, while loving and respecting those who accuse and persecute us.

I am not condemning the LGBTQ community nor do I judge or persecute them. They too are my brothers and sisters.

The attacks by the LGBTQ community and those who have a ‘progressive’ agenda – stealing the minds of our children in our schools; the purposeful and treasonous attacks of extremists both ‘right’and ‘left’ on our values and religious ideals, and especially the consistent attacks on our families and family values, are leading to destruction.

The Communist Manifesto states that the Communist goal is to destroy the family, the church and the state.

We are in crisis and I pray that you will stand up for all our freedoms in this province and not exclude religious people. That is what your apology did.

That is persecution of those who have Christian, or Jewish, or Hindu or Islamic values, which are strong, healthy families which will lead to a strong healthy society.

I hope you have the courage to respond to all the people of British Columbia.

John Abelseth
