In the last edition of The Interim I wrote about the noted atheist and enemy of the pro-life movement A.C. Grayling. But if Grayling is a problem, Richard Dawkins is a horror.

Liberal no longer

Liberal no longer

An American poet once defined a “liberal” as a man too “altruistically moral” to “take (his) own side in a quarrel.” Justin Trudeau recently decided that Canadian Liberals, in contrast, are not free to do the same.

Trudeau’s shocking declaration, made in ... (Continue reading)
