Canadian Town Bans Pride Flags On Municipal Property
(blogTO) A rural southwestern Ontario community has voted to exclude Pride flags and all other non-civic flags from being permitted to fly on municipal properties and streetlight poles, and some local residents are furious.
The new bylaw approved in Norwich, Ont. will only allow flags representing the municipal, provincial, and federal governments to fly on township property, or banners related to the promotion of downtown businesses or downtown beautification.
The original bylaw was proposed by Coun. John Scholten at a Tuesday night council meeting and specifically targeted Pride and Progress banners.
“Whether flown together or apart, these [government] flags are all we need to represent the diverse and multicultural citizenship in Norwich Township,” Scholten said. “By flying these flags alone on township property, we can coexist in peace and harmony no matter who we are or what we believe.” … to continue reading click here

Hatred stirs up strife, but love covers all offenses.
And by continuing to steal my screen name, bearing false witness against me, and misusing scripture you don’t understand, your hatred of God and of His standards is stirring up strife.
I’ve told you before, such scripture is talking about offenses to one another. Abominable sin is an offense to, and sin against the LORD. No amount of love can forgive that. Only HE can forgive that sin, and He will not forgive it unless you REPENT.
You do not have the authority or power to forgive sins against the Lord.
The strife is the result of your hatred of God.
It’s not the result of anybody else’s hatred of abominable sin. We’re supposed to hate sin, as God hates sin. It’s not the result of anybody’s failure to affirm, accept, or endorse abominable sin.
It’s the result of YOUR HATRED OF GOD.
dagnabbit, now quit stealing my screen name, and bearing false witness. If you have something to post, quit acting like a 12-year-old school child, and post it using your own name.
First love God ……….. ( FIRST !!!!! )
Second love thy neighbor
You cannot fulfill the second commandment unless you honor the first!
Now get thee behind me Satan! Leave!
And don’t try to say, even to yourself, “I don’t hate God”
Just your behavior here proves otherwise. You continue in your sins. You bear false witness. You steal. You misuse His word, and you worse do so in an attempt to try to justify sin. And when rightly reproofed for it, using and according to His word, you ignore that reproof and continue your wickedness.
As He said, if you loved Him, you would keep His commandments.
So you don’t have any basis to even speak the words “love” or “hate”, much less try to point the finger at others. You hate Him. You hate His standards. You hate His commandments. You despise them. You despise anyone who speaks that truth of His word. And from there you only get worse.
You’re sinning against Him far more than you’re sinning against me. You are blind.
Repent and submit to Him before it is too late. He loves you. He died for you. His commandments are not grievous.
