One third of Generation Z not heterosexual
More than a third of British youth under the age of 22 identify as nonheterosexual, according to an Ipsos mori report released on July 5. The study found that, in the United Kingdom, only 88 percent of baby boomers claim to be exclusively heterosexual—and this number decreases with each subsequent generation: 85 percent of Generation X, 71 percent of Generation Y, and 66 percent of Generation Z.
The Ipsos mori report identifies social media as one of the biggest reasons for this growing acceptance of homosexuality. Generation Z is being exposed to nonheterosexual relationships at a young age. It is stunning evidence of the success that radical sexual activism is having on society.
Canada welcomes back Islamic State jihadists
Around 190 Canadian citizens have left the country to fight for the Islamic State and other Islamic terrorist groups in the Middle East. Canadian government documents reveal that the administration of Prime Minister Justin Trudeau believes these terrorists have a “right to return” to Canada, a May 14 Global News report says.
A brief prepared for Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale reveals that not only does the Trudeau administration believe these terrorists have a “right to return,” but that the government must facilitate their re-assimilation into Canadian society. The brief asserts that, while returnees may have broken laws by participating in international terrorism, they “may now be disillusioned with the cause” and might no longer pose a threat to society.
The administration calls for the creation of a “High Risk Returnee Interdepartmental Task Force” to work with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to “support” and “open up dialogue” with returning terrorists and their families.
The Bible describes the moral condition of modern Canada and other nations that have descended from ancient Israel as “faint of heart.” In Leviticus 26, God specifically warns that if the people indulge in rank immorality, terror will reign over them as He breaks the pride of their power. Canada—having lost its faith, its obedience, its purpose and its power—now finds itself in this exact situation, seeking to cajole its enemies into loving it.
Democrats want to abolish ICE
A large number of Democratic Party members in the United States want to abolish Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ice), an agency that protects the nation’s borders. A YouGov survey conducted from July 1 to 3 found that over half of Democrats support abolishing ice to some degree, with 34 percent strongly supporting its abolition. Only 12 percent of Republicans support the dissolution of the agency.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 28-year-old self-proclaimed socialist who won a surprise victory in her Democratic Party primary, is campaigning on her promise to disband ice. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio flatly declared, “we need to abolish ice,” while Sen. Elizabeth Warren accused President Donald Trump of using ice to treat refugees “like terrorists” and “put children in cages.”
In the Old Testament, God likened end-time Israel (modern-day America and Britain) to a hedged vineyard, protected on all sides. But because of the sins of the people, He foretold of a time when He “will take away the hedge ” and “break down the wall” so the vineyard can “be trodden down” (Isaiah 5:5-7). Now the hedge on America’s southern border is being destroyed, from outside and from within.
Polyamorous trio ruled legal parents of child in Canada
Two men in a polyamorous relationship with a mother can legally be a child’s second and third parents, according to a Newfoundland and Labrador Supreme Court ruling made public on June 14. While polygamy is still outlawed in Canada, “polyamory” (non-married sexual relationships between more than two people) is legal.
Justice Robert Fowler made this ruling even though the Canadian province’s Vital Statistics Act provides for only two parents to be listed on a child’s birth certificate.
“Society is continuously changing, and family structures are changing along with it,” he wrote. “This must be recognized as a reality and not as a detriment to the best interests of the child.” This is the first case in Canada in which three people in a polyamorous relationship have been recognized as a child’s legal parents. It is surely not the last.
