CARPAY: A rebuttal to Licia Corbella’s column the Calgary Herald refused to run

Pastor Matheson and Ms. Corbella base their denunciation of truth-loving pastors on Romans 13:1: “Let everyone be subject to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God.”

I hate to disagree with Calgary Herald columnist Licia Corbella because she is a personal friend, and someone whom I admire greatly for her intelligence, her excellent writing ability, and her integrity. But disagree I must with her May 12, 2021, column titled “Defiant Alberta pastors defame and blaspheme Jesus with their actions.”  In the spirit of honest dialogue and benef

    I would agree that generally we should follow the rules we disagree with but still openly oppose them and try to get them changed in a proper and peaceful manner. However, there are times when people are justified to peacefully defy them especially for moral reasons. On the extreme side, who would argue that it was wrong for Germans who defied the Nazis by hiding their Jewish friends or for those that participated in the underground railroad that helped slaves escape their masters.

    Thank you John Carpay for this well written rebuttal to Lisa Corbella whom I also normally appreciate and respect but was dead wrong in her article. Pastor Matheson should know better! Shame on Calgary Herald for not accepting the rebuttle. Typical mainstream media that is more interested in those who support their narrative.

    This is a little story inside the big story that will be exposed and prosecuted in the courts and tribunals.

    Great article, can see why Kenney and Hinshaw hate the idea of having to stand behind their science, with lawyers like you John all ready for battle. Love your podcast

    Did Corbella use similar logic to explain the tyranny of the far from perfect Jason Kenny . . . who just made up stupid regulations, Jason & his Health Minister went out of their way to Persecute Christians with ZERO science.

    There was NEVER any threat to the healthy under 70 population and children were even less likely to be affected. The insane lockdowns & the economic destruction were completely unnecessary. The idea that it was Ok to wander through Costco or Safeway but Dangerous to sit in your Church is patently Insane. But Shandro & Kenny created this . . . had they directed their efforts towards the Seniors’ Homes & those with co-morbidities . . . as they did in other jurisdictions, life today would be 1000% better.

    Now that NIH emails have been released we know that Dr. Fauci & his Agency in the US Government were funding Gain of Function research at the Wuhan Lab. They discuss in emails a year ago last March that this Wuhan Virus was no worse than a Bad Flu Season . . . yet they Politicized the entire issue and with the help of the FakeStream Media. They lied for over a year about the Origins of the Virus and the Unquestioning Media just went along.

    In Canada Dr. Tam . . . WHO connected fraud, the UN agency who lied about the Virus for months covering up for the CCP. Along with the inept Crime Minister just threw money around and promoted the CCP lockdown mentality.

    Back to Corbella . . . comparing today to the 1918 Spanish Flu is absolutely comical.
    A substantial % of the victims of the Spanish Flu died from Bacterial Pneumonia . . . caused by Mask Wearing.

    James Coates and Art Pawlowski were absolutely correct challenging the Unconstitutional & Unlawful edicts of Alberta’s wanna-be Caesar . . .

Some commentators have noted the silence of Canada’s Left in the face of anti-government protests in Cuba. Why the reluctance to condemn a communist dictatorship? Well, as it turns out, some members of Canada’s Left have a fairly positive view of communism. One such prominent Canadian leftist was C.B. Macpherson (1911-1987), an internationally-renowned political scientist who taught politi

MORGAN: COVID has shown the need to overhaul Canada’s health care system

“We need to stop pretending the American and Canadian models of health provision are the only ones on earth. In fact, only two other countries on the planet explicitly ban private health care insurance: Cuba and North Korea.”

After his retirement, Ralph Klein was quoted expressing regret for having backed down on his "third-way" health care reform plan. We are paying the price today for the government's lack of will of yesteryear. Canada's health care system has long been considered a sacred cow. We have been taught since childhood that it's the best health care system on the planet; it's the very thing that defin

Simone Biles' choice to withdraw from the remaining Olympic events is respectable when you look at her reasoning. Characters like bombastic TV personality Piers Morgan would disagree, but Biles' choice to withdraw from the remaining gymnastics competitions in this year's Olympics is not only honourable but, sadly, predictable. The lives of professional athletes have always been caught up in a

No Media Bailouts

The fourth estate is critical to a functioning democracy in holding the government to account. An objective media can't maintain editorial integrity when it accepts money from a government we expect it to be critical of.

We the undersigned call on the Canadian government to immediately cease all payouts to media companies.
