June 8, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – It’s been a long time since Ontarians heard their provincial leader asking down God’s blessing at the end of a speech. 

I’m pretty sure that didn’t happen once during what pro-family leaders are calling the five-year-long “reign of terror” of lesbian premier Kathleen Wynne. It’s no surprise that a woman who outright opposes God’s plan for marriage and sexuality would refrain from asking for God’s blessing. 

But such is not the case with Doug Ford. 

Doug Ford’s Progressive Conservative party won a stunning majority last night. And it was a breath of fresh air to hear Doug end his rousing victory speech with a calling down of God’s blessings to all. 

“This is your victory,” he told his supporters. “Tonight is your night. I thank you. And God bless each and every one of you.”

Doug included God along his campaign trail, too. 

The Star even criticized him for speeches that were “borderline biblical.”

“A new day will dawn in Ontario ... God bless you,” Doug told one gathering.

The Star mocked Ford for his “evangelical, messianic quality” of his “campaign sermons.”

While Ford may or may not be the most devout follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ, it is surely nice to hear the province’s leader ask God to bless all of us. 

It can only be for the good that Doug Ford, whether you like him or not, has brought God back to Ontario.

“God bless each and every one of you!”

I suspect that God will hear that prayer and will honor it.
