Anyway, I grew up heavily influenced by my father, but the Bible told me to rebel from my Dad --- and that did even seem like a good idea at the time. Jesus is way smarter than my Dad. Believe me. I'm probably smarter, in numerous ways, than my own Dad is.
Anyway --- one of the laws that my Dad heavily criticized when I was growing up, which I have learned to absolutely love, is the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
The Charter is legally applied as a CONSTITUTIONAL LAW ---- which means that it takes precedent over all other laws in the country, and is essentially a "trump" card in all legal issues, as I would say.
Anyway, at the very beginning of the charter, it says:
CANADIAN CHARTER OF RIGHTS AND FREEDOMSWhereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law:
Did you see that?
I know, a lot of people I've been around probably never even read their Charter rights, and the part that I'm about to discuss, many people never even took seriously,
but for me, this is absolutely serious.
The law states "...recognize the supremacy of God..."
So, there you have it::: The LORD GOD is constitutionally enshrined as the supreme leader of Canada, and I personally find this to be a beautiful thing.
He's above the Prime Minister, ranked higher than the Governor General, and as the feudal system would likely dictate, he's ranked above the reigning Monarch as well.
So, Canada is God's country. It's right there in the country's highest law.
I am aware that any number of religions might make any number of false or potentially false claims about God --- and this is a concern to me ---- but hopefully God will get this nation straightened out about the actual truth of things sometime.
The reality of an existent God has made itself heavily evident in my own life, eyes and experience, so of course this simple mention in the Charter is extremely important.
And this post is basically just a post to let people know that this is the actual legal situation in Canada --- a lot of people probably didn't take it seriously, but for a guy like me this is absolutely serious.
I was wondering what I could possibly post on my blog that might have any worth of talking about, and after a while of thinking, this topic crossed my mind as something I could say.
It's pretty interesting and cool to me.
Too bad my Dad has so many political issues. Oh well, life goes on.
