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)

THE EDITORIAL

Magistrates across the country are fining and jailing pro-lifers who defy court injunctions. In Vancouver, Judge John Bouck handed out sentences of six months jail on July 14. In Calgary, on September 5, Judge Ernest Hutchinson fined one pro-lifer $500 payable in 15 days, or six months in jail. In Toronto, Judge A.E. Charlton imposed a $750 fine, payable in 60 days, or fifteen days in prison. These judges and others who have sentenced pro-lifers before them have one thing ... (Continue reading)

The Editorial In jail for Jesus

Recently someone had buttons made showing prison bars and the words “In jail for Jesus.”  A priest saw the rather large button for the first time when a well-tattooed motorcycle rider came up for communion on Sunday morning.  Afterwards he mused out loud that “another nutty group like the Baysiders of New York” must be getting started in the Church. Actually, the button is worn by some pro-lifers who have participated in an Operation Rescue or who have picketed or ... (Continue reading)

The Editorial

The love of God’s law is true love of country Over the last few months Josiah Wood and other British Columbia judges have handed out harsh sentences to pro-lifers.  These range from two to four months in jail for breaking an injunction imposed to protect Vancouver’s free-standing abortuary. An added sting is the judges’ refusal to grant a reduction in time served for good behaviour, something readily granted to others convicted of a criminal offense. The men and women who are ...

The Editorial Resisting Evil

This is what the Lord God asks of you: To fear Him, and to love and serve Him with all your heart and soul. For the first time in Canada since the second world war a large group of men and women who are innocent in the eyes of God but guilty in the eyes of society has voluntarily gone to jail.  Forty-four Vancouver men and women participating in Operation Rescue on Tuesday, February 7, were ...

The Editorial United Church confirms stand

Despite very strong opposition among rank and file members, the United Church reiterated its acceptance of active homosexuals as ministers in November 1988. Last August the General Council of the Church formally approved ordaining practicing homosexuals as ministers, a policy which earlier appears to have been permitted on an occasional basis in some places.  Organizations such as the United Church Renewal Fellowship and the ad hoc Committee of Concern attempted to channel their strong disagreement with this decision ...

The Editorial New Year’s resolutions

1989 is set to become a year of unprecedented challenge for pro-lifers. A crystal ball is not needed to predict that once again all of us will be called upon to take an active part in this battle for fundamental justice for the preborn child. As we approach the first anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in the Morgentaler’s case, the newly-elected federal MPs need to be told consistently and clearly by their pro-life constituents that it will be completely ...

The Editorial – We were wrong

In the Election ’88 supplement to the November Interim it was stated that “in ridings without a pro-life  candidate, it is still possible to make distinctions for voting purposes such as “not pro-life” and is “pro-abortion.”  We were wrong.  We apologize to our readers for any confusion this statement may have caused. For the truly pro-life voter there is no distinction between ‘not pro-life’ and ‘pro-abortion.’  A legislator who does not have the defense of the pre-born child as ... (Continue reading)
