"Gay Looney" Politicizes National Currency - Yet another Trudeau Goof?

Gay Canadian Coin

How do you know you're in the End Times?  Your country mints a "Gay Coin", and then tries to hide it from the public. I wonder how many Canadians are even aware of this Gay Coin...the announcement of which I discovered hidden on the back pages of the M$M.

Please read the following snippets of a story from the CBC and I will have more comments to follow:


*******************


"A new dollar coin designed to commemorate 50 years of homosexual rights has sparked a dual backlash — from both members of Canada's LGBT community and from a social conservative group.
The loonie, launched April 23 at an invitation-only event in Toronto, features a stylized depiction of two overlapping human faces within a large circle, the dates 1969 and 2019, and the word "equality" in English and French. The Royal Canadian Mint is keeping tight-lipped on details until next week's official reveal.
York University historian Tom Hooper said the coin commemorates a "myth," since the sweeping changes to the Criminal Code introduced in 1969 — which decriminalized sexual activity between men over the age of 21 in a private setting — were modest, and police and courts continued to criminalize same-sex relations afterward.
"I feel like they're putting this myth onto a coin. They're stamping this coin with 1969 and right next to it 'equality' and there was nothing in 1969 to do with equality," said Hooper, who studies the history of LGBT rights in Canada.
"Even the people who supported the Criminal Code reforms were arguing that we were a mental disease. So this was not about equality."
In 1967, after introducing the package of Criminal Code reforms that would pass a heated House of Commons vote two years later, then justice minister Pierre Trudeau famously stated that "there's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation."
"I think that what's done in private between adults doesn't concern the Criminal Code. When it becomes public this is a different matter, or when it relates to minors this is a different matter," he said.

Criminalization continued post-1969

But Hooper insisted that legal persecution of homosexual acts persisted through certain provisions in the Code — such as gross indecency — and pointed to the urban police raids of gay bath houses that continued into the 1980s.
"I think the story of decriminalization and the myth, as I'm calling it, certainly benefits the Liberal Party and it benefits anybody with the last name Trudeau," he said, calling the coin a "big mistake."...

Another day in the Canadian House of Commons
….another Tearful Apology

"Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wipes his eye while he is applauded as he delivers a formal apology to LGBT people in Canada in the House of Commons in Ottawa, Tuesday, Nov.28, 2017. (Adrian Wyld/The Canadian Pres


Some find coin concept 'disturbing'

David Cooke of the social conservative group Citizen Go Canada, meanwhile, accuses the Mint of trying to "politicize" Canada's coinage in order to promote what he calls the prime minister's "gay agenda." He compared LGBT issues to other topics that have proved to be politically divisive — abortion and divorce — and that he said should not be celebrated by the federal government.
"What we see here happening with Mr. Trudeau is, he's going really too far. He's not only going back into the debate, he's taking a side," he said.
"He's saying we as a country, and we as Canadian citizens, are not only saying we approve of homosexual behaviour and lifestyle, but we want to have every citizen have it on their coinage. It's going to be celebrated, going to be promoted and many Canadians find that very disturbing and even offensive.".....

Greencrow says: As an artist, I'm offended by the depiction on the coinage.  It's like a poster from the 60's.  If they were celebrating straight marriage...would they have such a cartoonish depiction of two people kissing?  No.  They would celebrate the commitment that it takes to maintain a relationship for decades. Actually, just leave the matter alone.  Personal relationships and choices are a private non-state matter. Incidentally, my husband and I are celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary this summer.  If Trudeau were ever to celebrate long lasting straight relationships such as ours...which he won't...I don't think the illustration would be of two bulbous lips touching.
My point being....personal relationships are just that--personal.  Justin's father Pierre Trudeau said it best..."There's no place for the State in the bedrooms of the nation."  Too bad Justin didn't learn a single damn thing from his father...as he has made crystal clear since he was anointed in 2015.

While all manner of deviant sex has always been a "normal" minority choice within society....the history of human civilization on this planet is replete with hard, empirical evidence that the more open, common and flagrant that deviant sex devolves within the "culture"....the closer that civilization comes to collapse.

The PC agenda- divide to conquer.
Trudeau is a virtue signaler

I thought the selection of the loonie for this was perfect.
It's a loonie idea

Hi anonymous:

With the dollar valued at 74 cents as of today, it is edging inexorably towards "fake money"...so why NOT make a joke out of it?

A bit sick as far as I am concerned to mint a coin such as this ,if indeed this is true .Maybe I am getting too old . I do think that lesbian and homosexuality is a fact of life as it exists and probably has always existed , but celebrating it is not a good direction for civilization .
What Justin Trudeau does in his own privacy is his business , leave me out out of it.
