The Governor General Julie Payette recently gave a speech to the Canadian Science Policy Centre, in which she questions why anyone still believes in Creation or divine intervention.
I was not aware that this was one of the roles as Governor General, to denounce any faith practiced in Canada. I understand that she was talking to a science field, but her speech is offensive to anyone that holds their faith dear. Because you believe that there is no higher power, G.G Payette, does not mean that proof has been presented to prove Creationists are wrong.
Justin Trudeau has been quick to support the Governor Generals views, and stated that the Liberal Party of Canada has a deep rooting in science. Again, by talking down to anyone that practices a faith in Canada is just plain wrong. We are a nation that is founded on Christian values, we have openly accepted other faiths to practice here freely, and openly.
Our National Anthem has a request to our God to keep our land glorious and free. Representatives of the Queen and our Prime Minister should not be mocking or calling people of faith less intelligent than those that believe in science. If all the scientific minds of today, that are much more educated than those of the men that penned the Bible, can’t disprove one aspect of the Bible, I believe faith to be the smart choice. While it is fine if the Governor General wants to believe there is no God, or any higher power, she is entitled, but not to opine against believers across Canada.
I am angry that so new to her role as Gov. Gen. Julie Payette has managed to offend so many across this great country. Her apology hopefully is given before she pays tribute to all those men and women who went to war for God and Country, on November 11.
