The King’s birth

The King’s birth

"In those days a decree went out from Emperor Augustus that all the world should be registered” (Lk 2:1). St. Luke’s account of Christ’s Nativity begins with the appearance of Imperial power for good reason. Besides being the story of a King’s birth, Christmas is also the story of the effects of that birth: of the old order that this King upsets, and of the people – and the ... (Continue reading)

Breeding confusion

You probably haven’t heard of Bill 28, “An Act to Amend the Children’s Law Reform Act,” also known as the “All Families are Equal Act.” The Ontario government is ramming through this Orwellian bill that redefines family relationships. It was introduced on Sept. 29 and passed second reading and sent to the Standing Committee on Social Policy within a week for a mere two days of consultations. There was little coverage in the media. Real Women said Bill 28 “turns on ... (Continue reading)

The importance of abstinence

If we would ask “Who is the most important person in your life?” what would your response be? In today’s culture many would answer without hesitation, “myself.” In that scenario what would that person’s greatest desire be? What they want to do and have will be uppermost in their mind. A worship disorder has been created which satisfies the self. If the idol we serve is self it enslaves, dehumanizes, and destroys us. When this condition exists with a dating couple ...

Patrick Brown betrays social conservatives

Patrick Brown betrays social conservatives

Patrick Brown's double-cross on sex-ed. Social conservative organizations like Campaign Life Coalition endorsed Patrick Brown in the 2015 Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership race based on his perfect parliamentary voting record during his time as an MP and his promise to scrap the early sex-ed curriculum.

Marriage commissioners must fight for Charter-protected rights

Marriage commissioners must fight for Charter-protected rights

John Carpay Our Charter freedoms are not worth the paper they are printed on, unless they are defended.

Kevin was a biker, and abused drugs and alcohol prior to becoming a Christian. After finding God, Kevin became involved with Christian outreach to bikers, including people involved ...

And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own ... (Continue reading)
