Has the war against Christianity begun?

Outrage: Toronto bans Christian music festival over name of Jesus
The City of Toronto has just refused to grant a Christian group a permit to use a prominent downtown square for its annual musical festival next year, all because — get this — the performers sing the name of Jesus.
Voices of the Nations has been using the Yonge-Dundas Square without issue for the past five years for its annual “multi denominational” event in which it celebrates Christianity through uplifting live music and beautiful dance. This year’s August 1 event attracted 19 different performance acts, including a children’s choir from Africa and popular Christian bands.
But Natalie Belman, the city official in charge of issuing permits, has quite literally told the group that singing the name of Jesus in the public square amounts to “proselytizing,” which she says is contrary to city policy.
“If you’re praising Jesus, ‘praise the Lord,’ and ‘there’s no God like Jehovah,’ that type of thing, that’s proselytizing,” she said.
This City official seems to have taken special issue with one well-known praise-and-worship song sung during the August festival called “Days Of Elijah” where the line ‘There’s no God like Jehovah’ is sung repeatedly.
This is nothing more than blatant discrimination against Christians. Can you imagine the City Official saying something like this to a Muslim or Jewish group and getting away with it?
This City Official may even be found to be violating the province’s Human Rights Code for refusing a facility to an identifiable group because of their religious beliefs.
Mayor John Tory and the City of Toronto need to hear that Christians have as much right to be in public spaces as anybody else. It’s time to join together and urge the mayor and the city to reverse this outrageous decision.

Christianity is an important part of African American life, the very idea, that they ban something that helps family to find a moral ground on how to raise their children, add sex education and you can see the push for immorality in our society.
The bible has always been an important part of my family life, from my grandparents, my parents and myself, and to see this, makes me wonder if what is said about the ends of time has merit.
Either way this is pretty disturbing, any form of discrimination is. Because it always start small and if they succeed, it evolves into something bigger.

That said, nude participants in annual Gay Pride parade is OK to these people, but kids singing about Jesus, well that's bad.
