Christianity threatened with extinction, says lawyer

Humphrey Waldock is a B.C. lawyer who has defended pro-lifers who have disobeyed injunctions and broken trespassing laws out of the belief that justice should be done for the pre-born. In Toronto for a week in early July, Mr. Waldock dropped into The Interim offices long enough to discuss the gathering secular assault on Christianity.

Bill C-43 Sign of the times

The following was extracted from a Burnaby, B.C. parish bulletin, written by Canon E. Gale of the Anglican Catholic Church of Canada.  It concerns Bill C-43, the government’s abortion legislation. Someone who has actually studied the bill and subsequent pronouncements by government officials has told me: “The effect of this bill is to legalise the killing of unborn children, to make abortion a woman’s entitlement (the word Hitler used in his abortion and euthanasia laws), to prevent third-party litigation (by the father ...
