The ideology of the “brave new world” does not include the more than 2,000 years of religious, cultural, and moral attachment that unites families, respects traditions, and provides moral guidance in everyday life.

The pogrom against churches in Canada has reached a new level in recent weeks. Dozens of churches have been set on fire or damaged, including in midwestern Alberta, where at least ten churches have fallen victim to vandalism. A simple explanation would be that the Black Lives Matter and other extremist organizations’ “cancel culture” ideology has spilled over from the neighboring United States.

But there is more to it than that, though there is no doubt that the campaign of hatred against religion cannot be dissociated from the social transformation processes of the great brother to the South. All this is closely related to the fact that, with the reign of current Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, the world of wild liberalism has almost completely engulfed the country, with all its negative consequences.

The immediate trigger for the current campaign to set fire to churches was that more mass graves have been found in Canada recently. The approximately 3,000 deceased were all children, and all belonged to native tribes. A common feature of the horror is that the mass graves were found next to so-called boarding schools, which were in fact child prisons.

Schools were the main executors of the forced assimilation program of the indigenous population and were established in the late 19th century. The official goal was to “civilize” the children. In practice, the authorities solved this by forcibly removing indigenous children from their families and placing them hundreds of kilometers from their original place of residence in a boarding school, where conditions were appalling and beatings, incarceration, etc. were on the agenda. The last such school was closed in 1996.

After the excavation of the present mass graves, instead of actual confrontation with the truth, things began to be blurred, events renamed, because the human remains in the mounds are mentioned as unmarked graves in official documents, thus giving the mass graves a bureaucratic appearance. Tempers soared, which also resulted in the burning of the temples. However, it would be a very hasty and irresponsible claim to blame native Canadians.

Since the vast majority of boarding schools belonged to the Catholic Church, anger was also directed primarily against them. It is at this point that the theory of identity imported from the United States gets involved, as it classifies a white man as a criminal. Since the perpetrators of those child deaths are already dead, extremist movements are extending responsibility to their descendants, which in this case is embodied in the arson of Catholic churches, taking revenge on those who have nothing to do with child abuse.

This anti-Christianity then came in handy for the liberal mainstream Trudeau government, which has so far done little to defend Christian values. So far there has been no arrest and there are no suspects for the arson of the temples, only a token official expression of “regret”.

All this in the name of progress.
