The new Canadian theocracy

Publication YearIssue Date 

Given all the attention directed towards the Conservatives' governing crisis in the last few days, it's hard to fathom how no commentator has yet grasped the True meaning of the issue.

Slightly below 60 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballots in the most recent Canadian election. Given that these were then divided amongst a number of parties, the plurality of eligible voters did not cast a ballot at all. Some take this as the natural order of elections, while others, pointing to the fact that the number of voters has declined in recent years, argue that this is evidence of the breakdown of the electoral system. Both of these interpretations are wrong.

Eligible voters who declined to vote did not do so for any reason other than their righteous conviction that casting their ballot would be a sin. Elected officials have a primarily legislative task. They create law. Clearly, by virtue of their being humans, this law will necessarily be inferior to divine law. This being the case, voting for an individual who will then develop law that will be promulgated as the supreme law of the land over and above revealed law is to elevate those lawmakers to a higher authority then God. Voting in an election is thus the active practice of false idolatry.

As can be seen, the current governance crisis is a simple matter of misunderstanding. The people of Canada, by giving the electoral plurality to none of the parties, have given a firm democratic mandate for Canada to be transformed into a theocracy.
