Hank Hanegraaff, president of the Christian Research Institute and host of the Bible Answer Man broadcast, comments on the Woke ideology of YMCA Canada. In his new book, Fire in the Streets: How You Can Confidently Respond to Incendiary Cultural Topics, Dr. Douglas Groothuis exposes the influence of critical theory, explains its origins, and provides a deep analysis. He warns that multiplied thousands of Christians have been taken in by this poisonous worldview and, as a result, are aiding and abetting the conquest of the church in America—a conquest that is at odds with the very gospel itself. YMCA originally stood for Young Men’s Christian Association—an association that was all about Christian worldview and values. Now, the YMCA in Canada proudly celebrates 2SLGBTQIA+ and resists and dismantles cis-heteronormativity. This alphabet soup stands for Two-Spirit, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, and additional sexual orientations and gender identities. YMCA Canada is committed to “diversity, equity, and inclusion” (https://www.ymca.ca/). Such policy mandates not merely equal opportunity but equality of outcome—the quintessence of Marxism. As professor Groothuis shows, many Christians are facilitating a Marxism that threatens to undo Western Civilization.
