The city of Toronto has announced that they will be banning the sacrament of holy communion in Catholic Churches, using the COVID-19 pandemic as an excuse to attack religious liberty.
The new guidelines issued by the city of Toronto on June 20 read as follows:
All places of worship must adhere to the following requirements:
Suspend all communion-related activities as advised by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health.
The Ontario Ministry of Health has issued COVID-19 guidelines advising to “suspend activities that increase risk of disease transmission, including” the “sharing or distributing materials or objects, which may include but is not limited to: books, communion, microphones, prayer mats, prayer shawls, water, etc.”
The guidelines additionally ban “indoor singing activities and choir service” and require churches to be filled at 30 percent of capacity. The Greek Orthodox Metropolis of Toronto of the Patriarchate of Constantinople published a powerful video of Fr. Fanourios Pappas informing his congregation on July 5 that he could not administer the holy Eucharist.

Big League Politics has reported on Canada’s war on Christianity, which has seen pastors arrested for preaching the Gospel in public after being attacked by soulless LGBT degenerates:
A Christian pastor named David Lynn was arrested and charged with disturbing the peace with “derogatory comments” on Tuesday for preaching the word of God on a street corner at Church-Wellesley Village in Toronto, ON.
After the disciple of Christ was harassed by a group of unruly protesters, he was hauled off in handcuffs by law enforcement because preaching the Gospel was considered to be a criminal violation.
The LGBT mob cheered on as the man was dragged away in handcuffs, a sign of things to come if their perverse agenda continues unabated…
“It’s unfortunate that I am subject to this kind of discrimination and bullying and marginalization simply for saying God loves you, there is hope for you, I accept you and tolerate you. I shouldn’t be in this position, I didn’t do anything illegal,” Lynn said following his arrest. He is now out on bond.
Lynn was shown on the video saying frequently that “God is love,” and that he doesn’t hate anyone. This didn’t stop the police from apprehending him anyway.
“I didn’t know this was the start of the pride month…I didn’t say anything specific to the LGBTQ community, it’s all on live stream,” he said to reporters.
Lynn believes that the LGBT protesters and other hostile anti-Christians throughout his country want him to “stay in the closet” about his Christian beliefs. His arrest will send a chilling effect to others who want to preach the word of Christ in the liberal-dominated country.
“It looked as though they had an event waiting for me, and they had some form of hatred against me,” Lynn said.
The COVID-19 mass hysteria is being used by left-wing public officials to crack down against Christianity, in Canada and elsewhere throughout the world.
Large-Scale Scientific Study Shows That ‘Pupils Pose No Risk of Spreading Covid’ in the Classroom
The hysteria over schools reopening is unwarranted.
A large-scale scientific study conducted throughout the United Kingdom has shown that students “pose no risk” of spreading the Chinavirus when returning to the classroom.
“A new study that has been done in UK schools confirms there is very little evidence that the virus is transmitted in schools,” said Professor Russell Viner, who works as president of the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and also serves on the government advisory group Sage.
“This is the some of the largest data you will find on schools anywhere. Britain has done very well in terms of thinking of collecting data in schools,” he added.
The study was carried out in 100 institutions across Britain. Viner believes that its findings make it “imperative” for children to promptly be returned to school. Prime Minister Boris Johnson is adamant about the kids being immediately returned to school as well.
“The education of our children is crucial for their welfare, their health and for their future. That is why it is a national priority to get all pupils back into school in September,” Johnson said.
“The message I have given to Ministers and civil servants is this: we can do it – and we will do it. Social justice demands it,” he added.
Johnson is fighting against the teachers’ unions, who hope to receive taxpayer funds while refusing to do their jobs with COVID-19 being the perfect cover for their immense greed. They have released a ridiculous list of 200 safety precautions that must be followed if they are to return. The National Education Union has urged their minions to “escalate” action if their demands are not met.
“It is incredible not one of these 200 nitpicking questions asks the most important thing of all – what’s best for the kids?” Education select committee chair Robert Halfon MP said in response to the demands.
The battle to reopen schools is also taking place in America, with President Donald Trump having to take on greedy teachers unions there.
Big League Politics has reported on the Trump administration plan to defund schools while they are closed and give the funds directly to cash-strapped parents negatively affected by the pandemic:
Education Secretary Betsy Devos is suggesting that public education funds should be given to families as relief while teachers refuse to do their jobs during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“If schools aren’t going to reopen, we’re not suggesting pulling funding from education but instead allowing families … (to) take that money and figure out where their kids can get educated if their schools are going to refuse to open,” Betsy DeVos said to Fox News during an interview.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has pointed out the senselessness of keeping schools closed throughout the year due to coronavirus mass hysteria.
“Take for example government experts who continue to call for schools and day care to stay closed or that recommend restrictions that make it impossible for a school to function. There are examples from all across the United States and around the world that show that young children rarely spread the virus,” Paul told Dr. Anthony Fauci, referencing countries such as Denmark, France and Germany that have reopened schools without problems.
“No spike when schools are opened. Central planners have enough knowledge somehow to tell a nation of some 330 million people what they can and can’t do,” Paul added.
Right now, teachers are threatening going on a nationwide strike if they are forced to actually do their jobs. They believe that the taxpayers should subsidize them as they sit at home.
This British study should allay parents’ fears regarding schools being reopened, but the mass hysteria will not be easy to overcome with the Democrats and the fake news media having so much to gain from it continuing.
