Martyrdom Of Mark Steyn’s Message

By now most of us have heard of Mark Steyn and charges against him by the Canadian government, to appear before a Human Right Tribunal to give an accounting of comments that he made in a book ‘America Alone’ Below is a blurb from the article. Please read it in its entirety.

VANCOUVER, June 3, 2008 ( – The British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal has had its first day of hearings in the case being brought against syndicated columnist and author Mark Steyn, and Maclean’s magazine that published an excerpt from his book, “America Alone”.
The lawyer for the complainants, Faisal Joseph, opened his statements yesterday saying that the article, “The future belongs to Islam,” published by Maclean’s in October 2006, depicted Muslims as “a violent people” who hold traditional Canadian values “in contempt”. Their religion he said, was portrayed as “inhuman” and “violent”.

With the rise of radical Islam in the UK, we have also seen a preference given to that religion, and it appears that the same is making its way across the pond. We are seeing some early evidence of this in the States but it will only become more prevalent with time. 

These prejudices will not only succumb to Islam and other vain religion, under the guise of Christianity in America, but will also will be forced to bow to every vile and and wicked way permeating our ungodly society. It will become a ‘hate crime’ to speak the truth of God’s word. The preacher will not be at liberty to call sin, sin without fear of being summoned before the ‘human rights tribunal’.

The preacher of truth will be likened to the preaching of Micaiah in the days of Ahab, and as it was for Micaiah it will be for this preacher. He shall find himself in jeopardy of prison to be fed the bread and water of affliction. It is happening over all of Europe, Asia and Africa.


A small cadre of supporters of Mark Steyn were also outside the court house brandishing blank signs that they said were symbolic of the attempt to force Steyn and Maclean’s to “shut up”. One protester said, referring to the hate crimes provisions in the Human Rights Acts, “We politicize our judiciary with this kind of law, because everything a writer writes is potentially going to hold somebody up to contempt”. “It’s a dangerous law, because if we silence writers, all kinds of implications flow from that.”

When the attempts come to silence pulpits across America, the preacher of God’s word must be prepared to stand as the three Hebrew children……

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we [are] not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be [so], our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver [us] out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

…… a mind that is stead fast upon the faithful word of God. This oppression of God’s word will only wax worse.
