Working for a better society

If ill opinions cannot be quite rooted out, and you cannot cure some received vice according to your wishes, you must not therefore abandon the commonwealth.” Sir Thomas More. In the December 1990 editorial, “The spiritual battle for Canada,” we described the formidable forces arrayed against a society founded on and held together by respect for God and the Christian tradition. Within that tradition a cultural pluralism existed and survived, if not always flourished. A degree of cultural was possible because society ... (Continue reading)

We did make a difference – Editorial

There has always been the tendency, amongst pro-lifers, to underestimate their own achievements.  When this happens, the door is thrown wide open, allowing pessimism and a sense of defeat to come galloping in. The time is long overdue for us to look back at our efforts and say “By the grace of God, we did make a difference.” During the past year, Campaign Life Coalition wrote and presented two masterful briefs to the Federal Government.  Both of these briefs ...

The Editorial The Spiritual battle for Canada

Almost a hundred years ago in an Encyclical letter to the American bishops, in 1895, Pope Leo XIII wrote a glowing tribute to the American people.  In it he praised “the great Washington.”  He recalled that President’s statement that religion and morality are indispensable for democracy’s survival.  Added Pole Leo: “And not without cause, for without morality the State cannot endure…But the best and strongest support of morality is religion.  She, by her very nature, guards and defends all ...

The Editorial Feminists dig in

As indicated in The Interim’s October editorial, the Ontario NDP will not innovate but, rather, intensify the anti-life mentality which already prevails in the province of Ontario.  Most likely it will broaden the attack on the moral foundations of the family in such areas as schooling. For over a hundred years the socialist/materialist philosophy has called for abolition of the family.  Free love, common law marriage, divorce on demand, contraceptive practices and abortion were all promoted during the last quarter ...

The Editorial Pro-life perspective

Ontario pro-lifers must look at the electoral change in the province from their own perspective; i.e., the protection of life and the family. In this light, several points are wroth mentioning. Firstly, the electoral upset was the result – so it seems agreed upon by many – of a general anti-government anger which may very well continue to grow. The NDP happened to be in the right position to benefit from this trend. In other words, the electoral vote ... (Continue reading)

‘AIDS a plague’ says editorial

The Fredericton Gleaner stirred up the anger of AIDS spokesmen at the beginning of July by declaring editorially that AIDS ought to be treated like the plague and its victims put in isolation. “A strong body of opinion,” the paper said, “believes that homosexual AIDS victims got exactly what they deserved; that if they had conducted themselves properly, according to the norms of society, they would probably be unaffected today.” The paper condemned especially AIDS carriers who knowingly spread ...

The Editorial The FCP and no one else

The Liberal Government of Ontario has an overwhelming majority in the legislature (95 out of 130 seats). Fearing that adverse economic and constitutional problems on the Canadian horizon may damage its future “credibility,” it has decided to go to the polls without delay. That’s it good right. But it’s our right to reiterate again the folly of being naïve about this government or the two old parties opposing it. The three established parties – Liberals, Conservatives and New Democrats ...

The Editorial

May 29 For the pro-life movement, May 29 will be – or at least should be in years to come – a day of sadness and prayer for forgiveness of our sinfulness. May 29 is the day the Commons passed Bill C-43. Spiritual disaster The Bill is a spiritual disaster because Canada has rejected God and His commandments on matters of life and death. After doing it first in 1969, with a degree of confusion, this time ... (Continue reading)

The Editorial Do Not Proceed

On May 22, Parliament will once again discuss the crime of abortion. This new debate will come 21 years after the original one concluded with the passing of Omnibus Bill C-150 on May 14, 1969. The Toronto Globe and Mail called that moment “a great day for Canada” and thanked Pierre Trudeau for settling the issue. It never occurred to the editorial writer that legalizing deliberate acts of violence against human life never settles anything; on the contrary, ... (Continue reading)

The Editorial Easter, agnosticism and Bill C-43

“And now Israel, take notice of the laws and customs that I teach you today, and observe them, that you may have life… “Keep them, observe them and they will demonstrate to the peoples your wisdom…” (Deut 4:1, 5) Easter tells us that God who created the world also intervened through Christ, God the on, to save mankind from its own created darkness and sin. Christ came to transform and perfect the teaching of the Law given to Moses and the Jews; and ... (Continue reading)

The Editorial The banality of conformity

Judge Rosalie Abella in Viewpoint, a supplement to the Canadian Jewish News, January 4, 1990 entitled “Jews in Canada: Looking to the future,” lamented the trend of Jews “who seek more and more to be the same as everybody else.”  Except for the Jewsish Orthodox, writes Judge Abella, “many Jews in Canada…conclude that the best way to integrate (into Canadian Society) is to abandon their Jewish trademarks…I regret with sadness the eagerness with which so many…Jews have traded their ...

THE EDITORIAL – Conservatives betray God and country

Woe is me! The traitors betray: with treachery have the traitors betrayed! Isaiah 24:16 In 1969 Pierre Trudeau, John Turner and the Liberals betrayed God and country by legalizing abortion. After twenty years of steadily deteriorating morals and equally steadily increased violence in the home and on the street, Brian Mulroney and the Progressive Conservatives have concluded that they ought to repeat the blasphemy. Legalizing abortion is, of course, blasphemy. God alone gives life and takes it. No mere man, nor any body ... (Continue reading)

The Editorial No room at the inn?

As the feast of Christmas approaches, we may recall that Luke’s account of the coming of Christ provides evidence of something which our Supreme Court does not yet realize—that the child in the womb is a human being. When Mary went to visit her cousin, the latter’s infant leaped in her womb. “For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears,” said Elizabeth, “the infant in my womb leaped for joy.” (Luke 1:43-44) The ...

The Editorial No choice

Members of parliament have no choice but to vote for a law which protects life from the time of conception till natural death, and this for two reasons. The first is the feeble, nay hopeless position of the so-called pro-choice faction.  Disguised as true liberty and progress, the feminist “solution” to individual and communal concerns is nihilistic, as killing new life must necessarily be. Killing human offspring wounds the mother, coarsens those who counsel her, brutalizes doctors and nurses who assist ... (Continue reading)
