Halton Catholic District School Board trustee Anthony Danko sought sex-ed delay. Trustees in several Catholic school boards have sought delay of the curriculum until lessons can be prepared to teach the new program through what Cardinal Thomas Collins has called “the Catholic lens.” The Institute for Catholic Education announced on June 1 that resources it is developing at the request ...

Quebec pro-life group fights for right  to protest outside abortuaries

Two Montreal abortion facilities facing the expiry of an injunction keeping pro-life street counselors away have made a last ditch effort to disqualify crucial evidence to be presented in court on June 16. “They want to throw out four of our seven affidavits,” said Robert Reynolds, the lawyer for Campagne Quebec-Vie, the Quebec branch of Campaign Life Coalition. Three of the targeted affidavits are statements from women who had abortions ... (Continue reading)

‘Free Mary Wagner’ protest greets Harper during Poland visit

While visiting a Canadian warship on his trip to Poland, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper wasn’t just shadowed by Russian frigates. He was also followed by Polish pro-lifers protesting his country’s treatment of pro-life prisoner of conscience Mary Wagner. On June 9, the Right to Life Foundation (Fundacja Pro-Prawo do žycia) organized another picket in front of the Canadian embassy in Warsaw to protest Wagner’s persecution. Wagner is a soft-spoken woman who has been jailed for trying to dissuade women from ... (Continue reading)

Justin Trudeau on abortion

Justin Trudeau on abortion

For most of Justin Trudeau’s first two years as leader, he evaded specific policy questions and offered platitudes that would offend as few people as possible while making his ideas and ideals sound lofty. But on a pair of divisive issues, Trudeau took positions in which he was crystal clear: legalizing drugs and protecting abortion. When it came to abortion, Trudeau staked his ground early, as an MP. In February ... (Continue reading)

Judges

Joe Campbell I think I’ve figured out why our top judges are allowing physician-assisted suicide. It’s about restitution. Years ago, they took away our right to birth. Now, they’re making up for it by giving us a right to death. It’s the latest thing in restorative justice. Oh, I suppose they could have made restitution by giving us back the right to birth, but that would have gone against legal precedent. ... (Continue reading)

Gay wedding cakes and the Ayatollahs of tolerance and diversity

Gay wedding cakes and the Ayatollahs of tolerance and diversity

While Christians are being slaughtered throughout the Middle East; while their churches are being burned; yea, while women and homosexuals are being stoned to death, we now learn that what really arouses the ire of Western liberals is that gay couples in America have to trudge yards, sometimes blocks, to purchase their wedding cakes. Since The Wizard of Oz is one of the favourite films of homosexual audiences, allow me ... (Continue reading)

There is more to transgenderism than Bruce Jenner

A documentary on the high-profile transition of Sonny and Cher’s only child Chastity Bono to “Chaz” was premiered at the Sundance Festival in 2011. Three years later, Time magazine featured Laverne Cox of the TV show Orange is the New Black on their cover. The heading read “The Transgender Tipping Point” and below that, in smaller print, was “America’s next civil rights frontier.” Jazz Jennings, at just 14 years old, is the youthful face of this frontier. He has already ... (Continue reading)

Truth in transition

L anguage is rooted in our common experience of the world. As every toddler quickly learns, each thing has a name, and every object within the range of the child’s eye and pointing finger has a word by which it can be called. After a time, the same vocabulary that clothes the visible world with language is used to dress the otherwise invisible world of thought: a “stance” can be taken, a point can be “seen,” and ...

Coren is wrong on homosexuality

Coren is wrong on homosexuality

National Affairs Rory Leishman Pro-lifers across Canada have been dismayed by the decision of Michael Coren to endorse same-sex “marriage” and leave the Catholic Church. What could have led this erstwhile champion of the Catholic Church and the traditional principles of Judeo-Christian morality so sadly astray? When Coren first disclosed that he had “moved on” in his thinking on same-sex “marriage” in a column last year in ... (Continue reading)

Little reality in reality TV

The recent scandal involving Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting has prompted calls for the cancellation of the show and speculation that the whole genre of reality TV might have played itself out. While I don’t think that the end is in sight for the most cost-effective production model TV has invented since the game show, ... (Continue reading)

Abortion industry selling aborted babies

The (pro-life) Center for Medical Progress caught a Planned Parenthood employee brokering the sales of aborted babies. If you read the transcript or watch the video, you'll see Dr. Deborah Nucatola, senior director of medical services at Planned Parenthood, describe how their employees can carry out an abortion to minimize damage to the preborn child, in ways that sound like they increase the pain the child suffers and possible harm to woman undergoing an abortion. It also sounds ... (Continue reading)
