Canadian Hate Crime Laws Shuts Down Christian Ministry

The Canadian government has ordered a Christian ministry that teaches doctrine and the differences between Christians and cults shut down because its reference materials were “critical” of the beliefs of those who are not Christian, WND has learned.

So what used to be called MacGregor Ministries with offerings in how to recognize and eliminate “faulty fads” in Christian churches has been re-created in the United States, and now operates under the name MM Outreach Media Ministries.

Lorri MacGregor, who has dedicated her life to explaining the straight and narrow of Christian beliefs since she found her way out of the Jehovah’s Witness system years ago, told WND Canada’s version of a “hate crimes” law prevented their work from continuing as it had for nearly 30 years.

“Canada is no longer a Christian nation,” she said. “And watch out America!”

The issue of the ministry’s charities license in Canada, allowing it to operate as a ministry, came up during a routine audit of the ministry’s finances, which was uneventful.

“The auditor that originally looked at our books told us her supervisor had said she wanted us shut down,” Mrs. MacGregor told WND. “Canada has very strong hate laws.”

She said the ministry points out the differences between Christianity and various cult beliefs, but also with respect, and never as a proponent. She said the work always is in response to a question or issue.

“When a group such as Jehovah’s Witnesses said of our doctrine we’re worshipping a freakish three-headed God (the Trinity), we should be able to respond,” she said. “We say, ‘Here’s the doctrine of the Trinity and here is where it is in the Scripture.’”

That, however, violates Canada’s hate crimes laws, and the ministry was ordered to either make wholesale changes in its presentations, or shut down.
