Death of dignity

Light is Right Joe Campbell I get the impression that the phrase “doctor-assisted dying” is becoming a media favourite. Don’t journalists know that we’ve been dying unassisted since time immemorial? We don’t need help dying. It comes natural to us. If anything, we need help living. I thought that’s what doctors were for. Doctor-assisted living, I understand.

What does Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto preach?

“There are many paths to God, and one of them is Christianity.” So says Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto on its list of bedrock beliefs. When I attended MCC Toronto a quarter-century ago, it billed itself as “a Christian church with a special ministry to the lesbian and gay community.” Grossly heterodox as it then was, MCC Toronto arguably still lay within the progressive fringe of Christianity.

CARP is run by media magnate Moses Znaimer, a founding patron of Dying with Dignity Canada and longtime vocal proponent of legalizing ... (Continue reading)

Alberta Education Ministry’s descent into madness

The Alberta Ministry of Education has gone bat-guano crazy, do escaped from their straight-jacket crazy that even American publications have noticed. The geniuses at the Ministry of Education flunked biology class, and yet see themselves as superior to Sigmund Freud.
