Mayor Naheed Nenshi, mayor of Calgary, has repeatedly ordered the arrest of Pastor Artur Pawlowski who dares to pray in public in the atrium of City Hall. Nenshi had stated that the atrium of City Hall is the “living room of the city”; however Christians are not allowed to do anything Christian in that “living room”.
Pawlowski was even removed for singing Christmas carols in the atrium a month ago. Today, he was arrested yet again for praying in the atrium. The pastor is doing this intentionally now, precisely to draw attention to the fact that Muslims get freedom to practise their religion wherever; the only ones who are not free are Christians.
Nenshi is the first Muslim mayor in a Canadian city. He was a colleague of Ezra Levant when they were in university; in fact, they used to debate each other on campus.
So watch out, Nenshi, Levant has got your number and is calling you out on this double standard. And, true to Ezra, he will not stop until the problem is resolved.
You have got to want this Ezra in your court. Talk about tenacious!
