Euthanasia, abortion and the culture of death in Canada!

The reaction from the people were mixed. Many of the drivers were honking, some with approval of our stance, others with visible hate towards us. We received some thumbs up and sometimes the middle finger (you are number one finger :-) ) The bottom line is that we stood publicly for life. People will have to choose what they want to stand for.

Watch what had happened after those terrorists left the New City Hall on July 18, 2014 and where they moved to find new victims. Shocking and unbelievable that something like this is taking place in democratic Canada.

Anti-gay pastor, denied by Ric McIver, endorses the PC leadership candidate anyway for his ‘traditional Alberta values’ PDF Print E-mail
Written by News   
Thursday, 24 July 2014 00:00

by David Climenhaga on July 24, 2014 in Alberta Politics

The Calgary pastor who believes gays aren’t merely being duped by Satan, but are practically on the demonic payroll, endorsed Tory leadership candidate Ric McIver yesterday.

Artur Pawlowski of Calgary’s so-called Street Church, a well-known nuisance violator of civic noise bylaws and leader of the annual March for Jesus attended several times in his political career by Mr. McIver, yesterday told the Calgary Herald the candidate is the best man to preserve “traditional Alberta values.”

Never mind that Mr. McIver disavowed his connection with the Pastor Pawlowski’s beliefs at least thrice, if not quite his relationship with the pastor himself, after his 2014 appearance in the preacher’s annual “March for Jesus.”

No sooner had Mr. McIver allowed himself to be photographed at the June 15 parade than his political opponents were Tweeting links to the Street Church’s contentious views about participants in the city’s Pride Parade – “that they are not ashamed to declare the name of their master (Satan).”

Mr. McIver hid out for a few days, and then gingerly backed away from the Street Church’s views, declaring that “if chosen premier, I do and will continue to defend equality rights for all Albertans as defined in the Charter, including sexual orientation.” Eventually, he issued a statement calling Pastor Pawlowski’s opinions “ugly” and “nasty.”

Pastor Pawlowski didn’t shed any tears about that disavowal, though. He went straight to the media and explained that “Albertans would be stupid not to vote for that man.”

Anyway, no roosters crowed before or after Mr. McIver’s disavowal of the pastor and at least some of his doctrines – thanks at least in part to Provincial Court Judge Catherine Skene’s 2012 ruling that the Cowtown bylaw prohibiting Calgarians from keeping chickens in their back yards is constitutional. (That’s enough obscure Bible references — Ed.)

The pastor told the Herald that real Albertans were disappointed by Mr. McIver’s disavowal, but they understood why he had to do it. “We have, in the Bible, very similar circumstances,” he said, referencing the same chicken story noted above.

He had some unkind words for both of Mr. McIver’s opponents – frontrunner and former federal cabinet minister Jim Prentice and former deputy premier Thomas Lukaszuk, slamming the former for being too inclusive in his campaign staff and the latter for not living up to the pastor’s fiscal views.

The important question now, though, is whether Pastor Pawlowski’s endorsement and the votes of his flock will help or hinder Mr. McIver’s leadership bid.

As argued here, posts passim, they could actually boost Mr. McIver’s leadership campaign, since the Calgary-Hays MLA has now almost cornered what’s left of the extreme social conservative vote left among the PC Party’s supporters.

It’s even possible, if unlikely, that they could push him over the top. And they will certainly make the winner and future premier of Alberta – most likely Mr. Prentice – think twice about not putting Mr. McIver into his cabinet to shore up the province’s hard-core Christianist vote.

But if Mr. McIver did win, his association with Pastor Pawlowski’s flock would destroy him and the Progressive Conservative Party.

They may also sink the chances of any other candidate who wins, because between them, Mr. McIver and Pastor Pawlowski have torpedoed two years of concerted efforts by PC strategists to brand the Wildrose Party as a bunch of homophobic nuts for remarks discovered in a blog by a candidate in the 2012 election campaign.

Since both conservative parties stand for pretty much the same thing on most other issues, they have frittered away about the only significant advantage held by the PCs.

Thus endeth the lesson.

July 23rd 2014

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

McIVER BEST CHOICE TO LEAD ALBERTA,” SAYS STREET CHURCH LEADER

CALGARY – Artur Pawlowski announced, today, that he will continue to support Ric McIver's bid to become the Leader of the Alberta PC Party and Premier of Alberta.

Said Pawlowski, “I still believe that my good friend, Ric McIver, is still the best choice for Albertans of good will who want to make sure traditional Alberta values are defended in Edmonton at the Legislature. Despite the fact that we are both Poles, I continue to have serious doubts about Thomas Lukaszuk and his commitments to fiscal responsibility, to moral standards, and to the truth. Mr. Lukaszuk was a key supporter of Alison Redford, and we all know where that took Alberta and the Alberta PC Party. Mr. Lakaszuk and I both speak Polish, but we speak different languages when it comes to traditional Alberta values.”

A few weeks ago, Ric McIver was challenged by Alberta media as to his association with Artur Pawlowski and his participation in the international “March for Jesus” here in Calgary organized by the Street Church led by Mr. Pawlowski. While he initially defended his participation, under enormous pressure Mr. McIver later attempted to disassociate himself and his leadership campaign from the Street Church, the March for Jesus, and Mr. Pawlowski.

Pawlowski also holds serious doubts about Jim Prentice and his campaign to lead the Alberta PC Party.

“I also have serious doubts about Jim Prentice's fitness to lead the Alberta PC Party, let alone the Province of Alberta. Mr. Prentice's policies would see higher tax bills for hurting Albertans. But Ric McIver has promised to make Alberta debt free, not by raising taxes, but by cutting public spending. Ric McIver has supported the work of the Street Church to feed the homeless, including homosexual, lesbian, transgendered, and transvestite homeless people – people we feed every week. But Mr. Prentice has long been a supporter of an anti-marriage, anti-family, anti-religious, and pro-abortion political agenda, and he is bringing that agenda to this race,” added Pawlowski.

Jim Prentice's campaign includes Jaime Watt and his public affairs company, Navigator Ltd, of Toronto. Mr. Watt and Navigator were granted sole-sourced contracts by Alison Redford while she was Premier. Mr. Watt was recognized by EGALE as a leading campaigner on behalf of gay marriage, gay adoption, and using the courts to force Catholic schools to promote or to tolerate a militantly gay social and political agenda. When he was asked about his association with Jaime Watt and Navigator, Jim Prentice refused to deny his association and Mr. Watt's taking a role on the Prentice leadership campaign.

I know that many Albertans were very disappointed at Ric McIver's efforts to distance himself from traditional, Alberta values. But I still believe that my friend Ric is the best choice to lead the Alberta PC Party and our Province in the 21st century,” said Pawlowski.

McIver gains endorsement of religious group he disavowed PDF Print E-mail

Calgary Herald

Artur Pawlowski, leader of Calgary’s controversial Street Church, endorsed Tory leadership candidate Ric McIver Wednesday, saying his “good friend” will best be able to defend “traditional Alberta values.”

“Canada is a wonderful country, it was built on sound principles, and family is one of those principles. I know that Ric McIver wants to bring that to the table,” he said at a press conference outside Old City Hall.

Pawlowski said he would advocate for McIver throughout the race.

“Albertans would be stupid not to vote for that man.”

He also outlined his concerns with the other two Progressive Conservative candidates, Thomas Lukaszuk and Jim Prentice.

“Despite the fact that we are both Poles, I continue to have serious doubts about Thomas Lukaszuk and his commitments to fiscal responsibility, to moral standards and to the truth,” he said, while he criticized Prentice’s ties to Toronto-based communications firm Navigator Ltd. and its chairman Jaime Watt, a gay rights advocate.

The Street Church has openly condemned the gay community on its website. “They are not ashamed to declare the name of their master (Satan),” reads a blog post about the Calgary Pride Parade written by Pawlowski.

Last month, McIver came under fire for walking in the organization’s March for Jesus, which he later apologized for.

“I didn’t check the website, with all of this, you know, ugly ... nasty mean-spirited stuff on this website that there is no excuse for, and I apologize for drawing attention to it,” he said at the time, adding he would not be participating in future marches barring a change in church leadership.

Pawlowski said many Albertans were disappointed by McIver’s decision to distance himself from the church, but that he understood the need to bow to political pressure. “We have in the Bible, very similar circumstances when the apostle Peter denied Christ three times,” he said.

A spokeswoman for McIver said Pawlowski would have no part in the campaign and that McIver, a Roman Catholic, has never been a member of the Street Church.

Written by Artur Pawlowski   
Tuesday, 22 July 2014 18:27

"A heartfelt welcome to all participants of the 2014 March for Jesus in Warsaw!”

IMG 0913

"The event we are taking part in today is truly one of its kind. We have not come together to stand against anything or anyone, but to stand for something and someone. This march is for Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. Today, in this capital city, we can come together in unity and share the privilege of manifesting our faith in the one true God. We can show the world that we, the people of Poland, have nothing to be ashamed of and we will not keep hiding in the shadows. On the contrary, we will be like King David, we will dance and praise the Living God, bringing the Ark of Covenant, surrounded by people, into our capital city. A thousand years after David, we will be like him, dancing and singing to our God. We will dance to the popular song “When the Spirit of the Lord moves in my heart I will dance like David danced”.

It is my heart’s desire for us to stand in unity and honor God just like this great ancient king.

This year’s March sets out from a place deserving our deepest respect. It is full of symbolism we cannot afford to forget. Over here we see the Tomb of The Unknown Soldier, symbolises the sacrifice of people fighting for our freedom and democracy. Behind us is the cross – a symbol of victory and grace. A symbol of God’s limitless love, the highest sacrifice made by the very Creator of heavens and earth, our God, Jesus Christ. There is one more symbol here, we can see it in the distance, a symbol of patriotism. It is the monument of a man who proved with more than words that our Homeland is something more than a set of empty phrases. This monument commemorates Marshal Jozef Pilsudski.

It was Marshal Pilsudski who said: “A nation who does not respect its Past does not deserve the respect of the Present and has no right to a Future”.

This place where we are standing today calls to us in so many ways to REMEMBER, the past generations are calling – DO NOT FORGET. God Himself is calling us to learn and draw conclusions from the experience of those who came before us.

God, in His Word, tells us about many places of remembrance. When Joshua crossed the Jordan River he used stones to build a monument, proclaiming: “When your children ask their fathers in time to come, saying, ‘What are these stones?’ then you shall let your children know, saying, ‘Israel crossed over this Jordan on dry land’ for the LORD your God dried up the waters of the Jordan before you until you had crossed over, as the LORD your God did to the Red Sea, which He dried up before us until we had crossed over, that all the peoples of the earth may know the hand of the LORD, that it is mighty, that you may fear the LORD your God forever” (Joshua 4:20-24).

We live in times when many want to mock the achievements of the past generations, but we, Christians, should be different: WE ARE MEANT TO REMEMBER!

We, Christians need to cultivate this universal, unchanging truth: “If we don’t know where we are coming from, we will not know were we are going”.

We are marching for Jesus every day, in everything we do, in our lifestyle, in the words we speak. Once a year, however, we can march for Jesus together, as one family. On this very special day we can march as one. We have the opportunity to honor the One who died for our sins and was not ashamed to call us His children.

In this place, I want to tell my God: “I praise You for what you have done, that it was your will to leave Your throne and save a sinner like me”.

If I also had the opportunity to say a few words to those heroes who died for our freedom, this is what I would tell them:

Heroes! We live in times when patriotism is often unwelcome and the words GOD, HONOR AND HOMELAND are mocked. But we, Christians from all over the world declare and want you to know that we remember and we are grateful for your courage, sacrifice and faith in a better future. We know that it is thanks to you and to the one God, Jesus Christ, that we can stand here today, enjoying the freedom you have purchased for us with your own blood. We bow our heads, expressing our deepest thanks".

Lord, today there are so many important people gathered in this place, but it is our heart’s desire for you, Lord Jesus, God Almighty, to bless us with Your presence. This March is for You alone. These people have gathered for Your glory. Lead us all through our capital city – Warsaw!

Closing, I would like to recall words once spoken in the very place where we are standing now. They were pronounced 35 years ago by another Pole who lived, like me, in a foreign land, missing his homeland and longing to see it fully devoted to God.

I want to repeat these words after a great Patriot, voice them loud and clear, so that all of heaven and earth can hear me as I pray these words from Psalm 104:

Myself a son of this land, I am calling today… Let your Spirit descend! Let your Spirit descend! and renew the face of the earth – of this land! Amen!”

Let us remember that the Word of God is powerful.

These are my wishes for you, Poland, and for every person standing here in the Name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ”.

Pawłowski's speech in Polish:

Przemówienie inauguracyjne wypowiedziane przez Artura
Pawłowskiego przed Marszem dla Jezusa w Warszawie 2014.

"Witam was bardzo serdecznie na Marszu dla Jezusa 2014!

Jesteśmy dzisiaj na wydarzeniu jedynym w swoim rodzaju. Zgromadziliśmy się nie przeciw czemuś czy komuś, lecz za czymś i za kimś. Jest to marsz za i dla Jezusa Chrystusa naszego Pana i Zbawiciela. Dzisiaj w stolicy Polski w jedności, razem możemy mieć ten zaszczyt aby zamanifestować naszą wiarę w Jedynego Boga. Pokazać światu, że MY POLACY nie mamy się czego wstydzić, że nie musimy i nie będziemy się chować gdzieś po kątach. Wręcz przeciwnie, będziemy jak Dawid niegdyś, tańcząc i wychwalając Boga Żywego, który przyprowadził ludzi i Arkę Przymierza do swojej stolicy. Tak i my dzisiaj, tysiące lat później będziemy tańczyć i śpiewać naszemu Bogu. W rytm tak dobrze nam znanej piosenki „Gdy Boży Duch napełnia mnie jak Dawid tańczyć/śpiewać chcę”.

Moim pragnieniem jest, abyśmy właśnie tak, jak kiedyś ten wielki Król uhonorował Boga, tak i my dzisiaj w jedności Go również uhonorujemy.

W tym roku Marsz rozpoczyna się w miejscu którego nie wolno nam zignorować. Jest to miejsce symboli o których nie możemy zapomnieć. Z jednej strony znajduje się Grób Nieznanego Żołnierza, symbol ludzkiego poświęcenia i ofiary którą złożyli ludzie w walce za naszą wolność i demokrację. Z tyłu za nami stoi krzyż, symbol zwycięstwa i łaski. Symbol nieskończonej Bożej miłości, najwyższej poniesionej ofiary jaką zapłacił sam Stwórca Nieba i Ziemi Jezus Chrystus nasz Bóg. Jest jeszcze jeden symbol, stoi tam w oddali, symbol Patriotyzmu. Pomnik człowieka który nie tylko słowami ale czynami udowodnił, że ojczyzna znaczy coś więcej niż tylko puste frazesy. Jest to pomnik Marszałka Józefa Piłsudskiego. To właśnie on powiedział kiedyś:

„Naród, który nie szanuje swej przeszłości nie zasługuje na szacunek teraźniejszości i nie ma prawa do przyszłości”. Marszałek Józef Piłsudski

To miejsce na którym się znajdujemy, w każdym calu krzyczy PAMIĘTAJCIE, przeszłe pokolenia wołają - nie ZAPOMINAJCIE - a sam Bóg nawołuje abyśmy uczyli się i wyciągali wnioski z doświadczeń przeszłych pokoleń.

W biblii Bóg niejednokrotnie pokazuje nam przykłady miejsc pamięci. Gdy Jozue przekroczył Jordan ustawił pomnik z kamieni mówiąc „Gdy w przyszłości wasi potomkowie pytać się będą swoich ojców: Co znaczą te kamienie? Pouczcie waszych synów, mówiąc: Suchą nogą przeszedł tu Izrael przez Jordan, Gdyż Pan, Bóg wasz, wysuszył wody Jordanu przed wami, aż się przeprawiliście, podobnie jak Pan, Bóg wasz, uczynił z Morzem Czerwonym, które wysuszył przed nami, aż się przeprawiliśmy, Aby poznały wszystkie ludy ziemi, że ręka Pana jest mocna, i abyście się bali Pana, Boga waszego, po wszystkie dni.” Księga Jozuego 4:20-24

Nastały czasy gdzie wielu chce drwić z dorobku przeszłych pokoleń ale My Chrześcijanie mamy być inni: MAMY PAMIĘTAĆ!

My chrześcijanie musimy kultywować tą uniwersalną, niezmienną prawdę „Jeżeli nie wiemy skąd przychodzimy to nie wiemy również dokąd zmierzamy”.

Maszerujemy dla Jezusa codziennie we wszystkim co robimy, tym jak żyjemy i tym co mówimy. Lecz przynajmniej raz w roku Maszerujmy dla Jezusa razem, w jedności, jak jedna rodzina. W ten jeden wyjątkowy dzień możemy zrobić to wspólnie. Mamy okazję uhonorować Tego, który zmarł za nasze grzechy i nie wstydził się nazwać nas Swoimi dziećmi.

Na tym miejscu, Bogu mojemu mówię: „Chwała Tobie za to co zrobiłeś, że zechciałeś zejść ze swojego tronu i zbawić takiego grzesznego człowieka jak ja”.

A Gdybym miał jeszcze okazję i mógłbym skierować kilka słów do tych bohaterów którzy polegli za naszą wolność, powiedziałbym im tak:

„Bohaterowie! Przyszło nam żyć w czasach gdzie często patriotyzm jest nie mile widziany a słowa takie jak BÓG, HONOR, OJCZYZNA wyśmiewane. Jednak dzisiaj MY chrześcijanie z całego świata deklarujemy i pragniemy abyście wiedzieli, że pamiętamy i wam dziękujemy za waszą odwagę, poświęcenie i wiarę, że kiedyś nastaną lepsze dni. Wiemy, że to dzięki wam i Bogu Jedynemu Jezusowi Chrystusowi możemy tutaj być i cieszyć się tą wolnością za którą WY zapłaciliście swoim własnym życiem. Chyląc czoła, mówimy: Dziękujemy WAM!”

Boże, dzisiaj na tym miejscu zgromadziło się wiele ważnych Osobistości ale pragnieniem naszym jest abyś to Ty Panie Jezu, Boże Wszechmogący, zaszczycił nas swoją obecnością. Ten Marsz jest dla Ciebie. Ci ludzie przyszli dla Twojej Chwały. Poprowadź nas wszystkich po naszej stolicy - Warszawie!

Na zakończenie chciałbym przypomnieć słowa wypowiedziane na tym samym placu na którym teraz stoimy. To słowa z przed 35 lat też wypowiedziane w czerwcu przez pewnego Polaka, również jak ja żyjącego na obczyźnie i również tak jak ja, tęskniącego za swoją ojczyzną którą chciał widzieć oddaną Bogu.

Pragnę ponownie zawołać tak jak kiedyś ten Patriota, wołać tak głośno aby całe niebo i cała ziemia usłyszały słowa tej modlitwy z psalmu 104:

„Wołam, ja, syn polskiej ziemi,...„Niech zstąpi Duch Twój! Niech zstąpi Duch Twój! I odnowi oblicze ziemi, tej ziemi. Amen”.

Pamiętajmy, że Słowo Boże ma moc.

Tego życzę Tobie Polsko i wszystkim tutaj zgromadzonym w imieniu
naszego Pana i Zbawiciela Jezusa Chrystusa".

For the first time ever, representatives of the Polish Catholic Church have taken part in the March for Jesus in Poland. Its main goal is the promotion of positive Christian values. It also encourages people to lead a moral life dedicated to God. Five representatives of different faiths had the chance to speak to participants, which included the Nigerian ambassador to Poland Samuel Wodi Jimba.

The procession came to an end with a speech by Artur Pawlowski, a pastor in Canada and the brains behind the March for Jesus in Poland. As expected, Franklin Graham, son of the famous evangelist Billy Graham, also took part in the festival. He is president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief organisation.
