Californians reject gay marriage California voters have said an emphatic "no" to the question of same-sex marriage. Results of the state's direct democracy plebiscite indicate that voters have turned thumbs down to a proposal that would give official sanction to homosexual unions. The plebiscite, which contained 31 propositions, asked for a yes or no vote to the proposal: "Only a marriage between a man and a woman is ... (Continue reading)

Dr. Laura’s foes are anti-semitic

The story of my relationship with Dr. Laura Schlessinger. Actually there isn't one. Never met the woman, never spoken to her. But she has read two of my columns out on her radio show and that pleased me no end. I was flattered, because whatever minor criticisms one may have of Dr. Laura, she has courageously stood up for the virtues that do not change. For first things, for permanent things, for ...

Participation in PrepCom was eye-opener on feminism

‘I thought feminists were pro-woman, not angry, hurt people whose logic I can't understand' By Cathrina Keet The Interim A battle over women's rights was fought at the United Nation Headquarters in New York. My concept of justice, democracy, and reality was shattered during the portion of the Beijing+5 PrepCom which I recently attended. I expected the United Nations to attack violence against women, hunger, war disease, and a lack of education, water, and medicine. Instead I ... (Continue reading)

Pro-lifers speak up at UN’s Beijing+5 PrepCom

Delegates to follow-up women's conference fail to agree on abortion and homosexuality By Tim Bloedow The Interim Last month, from March 3-16, feminists from Western countries took another stab at advancing their pro-abortion and homosexual agenda at the United Nations during the so-called Beijing+5 PrepCom. Once again, however, they were beaten back by aggressive pro-family forces and resisted by developing countries, organized at the UN as the G-77. The UN is reviewing the compliance of ...

Toronto Christian vows appeal of anti-gay ‘discrimination’ ruling

Analysis by Tim Bloedow The Interim A recent ruling in an Ontario Human Rights Tribunal case has produced one of the most explicit statements to date from a government agency relegating Christianity exclusively to the private sphere of life, banning its use as a legitimate defence for behaviour deemed unacceptable by the establishment. The case involved a complaint of discrimination taken to the Ontario Human Rights Commission by homosexual activist Raymond Brillinger against Toronto-area Christian ... (Continue reading)

Liberals avoiding debate on C-23

Pro-family critics say traditional marriage definition leaves substance of gay bill intact By Tim Bloedow The Interim The federal Liberals continue in their push to entrench same-sex benefits and, as a result, to redefine marriage in Canadian law through Bill C-23. As of this writing, the House of Commons Justice Committee is examining the bill, but critics say the process is nothing but a sham - more a publicity stunt than a sincere attempt to solicit ...

Ballistic bishops

"Bishops are not intercontinental ballistic missiles, manufactured on one continent and fired into another as an act of aggression." So fumed Archbishop Michael Peers, primate of the Anglican Church of Canada, in a statement quoted recently by the National Post. Archbishop Peers was referring to the January 29 consecration in Singapore of two U.S. Episcopalian (Anglican) priests - the Right Reverends John Rodgers and Chuck Murphy, as "missionary bishops," by theologically conservative Archbishops Moses ...

The ‘end’ of the gay agenda is the ‘end’ of marriage

On the face of it, the federal Liberal government's Bill C-23 is about granting all the privileges and obligations of common-law couples to same-sex partners. Looking just under the surface, we see that the measure would make homosexual unions equal to marriages, since there is currently little difference between common-law partners and spouses in ...

World Youth Alliance raises pro-life hopes

By Anna Halpine The Interim The North American Youth Alliance (NAYA) held their first meeting in Washington D.C. at the end of January.

The meeting heralded the beginning of the NAYA, a network of youth groups and organizations in North America, and the North American branch of the World ... (Continue reading)


Sweeping federal benefits bill grants full common-law status to homosexual couples By Tim Bloedow The Interim By the time you are reading this article, the Liberal government's same-sex benefits bill may well have already passed through the House of Commons, if not the Senate, and into law. As of this writing, the federal government appears to be expediting the bill through the House. The Prime Minister is also reported as having ... (Continue reading)

The hangover from a 30-year binge

The hangover from a 30-year binge An English friend of mine commented recently that "there are some liberals over here who are starting to get a hangover from their binge." Indeed, what began with idealized hopes for the perfectibility of man has ended in a near-total cave in of public morality and civility - something even liberals are finding it a challenge to deny. Affirmation of disordered ... (Continue reading)

Pro-family victory in B.C. school board vote

From LifeSite News Parents and citizens in Surrey, British Columbia have resoundingly supported their pro-family slate of Surrey School Board members. During a municipal election Saturday, voters continued support for the current school board members, who faced severe criticism from homosexualist advocates for banning three books designed specifically to indoctrinate children with the notion that homosexual households are morally equivalent to normal families. The board also opposes Planned Parenthood, promoting chastity education ... (Continue reading)

Prepare ye the way of the Lord

Often today we hear people say that some idea or movement is "prophetic," or that "So-and-so is a real prophet." In the case of a person, what's meant is that he's a "radical"; that is, that he stands up to the powers-that-be, and challenges the status quo. Our culture idolizes "prophets" and "prophetic" movements. Our heroes are "radicals," and our history is constant ... (Continue reading)

Manning’s response to the Throne Speech deserves high praise

On Oct. 13, Reform Party leader Preston Manning delivered perhaps the most compelling and passionate speech on moral issues that the House of Commons has heard in a long time. Responding to the Throne Speech delivered by the Governor-General the previous day, the Leader of the Opposition made a commitment to both economic and moral conservatism in a 100-minute speech, which included calls for tax cuts and free markets, a definition of ...
