Say NO to a "Gay" Loonie!

UPDATE: April 12th, 2019

We held a rally to-day in front of the Royal Canadian Mint in Ottawa from 12 to 1 PM. About a dozen people gathered to take a stand against the politicization of our coinage and the aggressive push of the LGBT agenda on ALL Canadians.

Most of the pedestrians we talked to on the street had not even heard of the new design for our one dollar coin. They were shocked when we told them about it, and were glad that we were protesting.

While the mainstream media mostly ignored our event, LifeSite News offered extensive coverage, which you can find here: https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/canadians-protest-new-coin-celebrating-decriminalization-of-homosexual-sex-acts

Gay Loonie Protest

After the rally, we delivered our petition in-person to staff inside the Mint. We will continue our efforts to oppose this offensive design and we encourage Canadians to add their names to our growing petition.


Last December, the government of Justin Trudeau announced a new design for the one dollar coin (known as the “loonie”) to be released sometime in 2019. (See CBC report.) Though the specific details are being kept a secret, we have been told that the coin will be used to celebrate and normalize homosexuality. This is truly “loony”!

2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the legalization of homosexuality in Canada. The government of Pierre Elliot Trudeau (Justin Trudeau’s father) decided in 1969 that criminal homosexual acts should be legal. Now Trudeau junior wants to celebrate this event.

But “legal” does not equal “moral”. Not everything that is “legal” should be celebrated.

There are many things that are perfectly legal in Canada, which are not only questionable, but often downright immoral.

Divorce is legal. Trudeau senior lifted many of the restrictions on divorce in 1969 along with the legalization of homosexuality. However, it is doubtful that anyone finds it is perfectly decent or commendable for a man to divorce his wife (or vice versa) “just because”. The breakdown of a marriage and the ensuing damage to children and other family members is nothing less than tragic. We would never think of putting an image on the 2019 loonie to commemorate legal divorce.

Abortion was also legalized in 1969 by Trudeau senior. But does that mean we should celebrate the destruction of innocent human life? Do we want to see a "pro-abortion" loonie?

And so, when it comes to homosexuality (the practice of sexual intercourse between members of the same sex), we ask the question: Just because it’s legal, does that make it right? This behaviour may be decriminalized, but does that mean it should be encouraged and promoted?

Most Canadians are not homosexual and find the idea of homosexual sex to be unappealing or even repulsive. They respect people’s choices, but they would never choose homosexuality for themselves. So why should this divergent and unpopular sexual practice be highlighted on our circulation coinage?

Furthermore, many Canadians consider homosexuality sinful, based on the teaching of Judaism and Christianity. God has said: “If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination.” (Leviticus 20:13). To celebrate homosexuality is not only an offence to God, but it is an offence to those who take God’s Word to heart. Many will feel uncomfortable using or carrying these coins. Some will believe they must reject them entirely. This is sure to widen, not mend, the current social rift in Canadian society.

In addition, statistics show that homosexuality poses a danger to one’s health. Active homosexuals do not live as long as non-homosexuals, and they are prone to more disease. (See FRI report.) Should we celebrate a lifestyle that puts people at greater risk of harm?

Finally, many people (including numerous non-religious Canadians) argue that homosexuality is unnatural. They say that the practice of same-sex sexual activity is akin to fitting a square peg into a square peg: It defies the normal design of the human body. Should we celebrate an unnatural act?

For all these reasons and more, it is completely irresponsible and needlessly divisive to create a “gay" loonie for 2019. We are calling on the government to rethink its decision and withdraw its plans for any design that celebrates the homosexual lifestyle. Homosexuality is legal, but that does not mean it should be forced upon all Canadians.

No 'Gay' Loonie!

Canadian Coins Should Not Promote Division

Dear Royal Canadian Mint,

I am very upset over the planned release of a pro-homosexual one dollar coin later this year. I do not want a "gay" loonie.

When Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau decriminalized homosexual acts in 1969, he famously said, "there's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation." In other words, people's private sexual practices should stay private, and the government should keep out. If that is the case, then why are you promoting certain sexual practices on Canada's official coinage? It is like the government is opening up the doors of certain bedrooms and inviting everyone in to watch. This is unacceptable and un-Canadian.

Just because homosexual acts have been legalized, that does not mean they should be celebrated or commemorated. Divorce is also legal - many restrictions on divorce were lifted in 1969, but that does not call for the minting of a "pro-divorce" one dollar coin. Abortion laws were also liberated in 1969, but that does not mean there should be a "pro-abortion" loonie.

There are many things that are perfectly legal in Canada, which are not only questionable but also immoral. The government has chosen to step out of the debate on these issues and has left it up to ordinary citizens to decide. By minting a coin to celebrate homosexuality, the government is not only stepping back into the debate, but it is taking a strong stand on one side. This is sure to alienate and divide many people. This is not the function of our national coinage!

The fact is that many religious Canadians consider homosexual acts to be sinful - a serious offence to God. Also, numerous non-religious Canadians feel homosexual acts are unnatural or unhealthy - at odds with normal human biological and reproductive functions. Many will feel uncomfortable using or carrying these coins. Some will believe they must reject them entirely. This is sure to widen the current rift in Canadian society and may promote discrimination against traditionally-minded people.

Therefore, I am asking you not to mint a "gay" loonie in 2019. The government must withdraw its plans for any design that celebrates homosexual acts. I do not want homosexuality forced upon me and my country.

Sincerely,
[Your Name]

Say NO to a "Gay" Loonie!
