Same-sex ‘marriage’ is not a done deal

On Nov. 25, the subcommittee to the committee on procedure and House affairs deemed New Brunswick Conservative MP Rob Moore's private member's bill on marriage non-votable. Moore's C-268 sought to reaffirm the definition of marriage exclusively as the union of one man and one woman. Without giving reasons or without the release of an official vote, the subcommittee, which meets in camera, said that C-268 was unconstitutional. Funny, though, because ... (Continue reading)

2005 will be an exciting year to watch

As I pen these words, you probably think that, as a beginning-of-the-year column, I would be looking back at the previous year.

Good News Corner: Not just coincidences

One lovely day last June, Vern, a summer counsellor at Toronto's downtown Aid to Women office, decided "to rollerblade" his way back to the Campaign Life Coalition office, a half hour away. It was a good decision, because as it turned out, he helped two teenagers change their minds about abortion. As he approached an abortuary located on his route to the CLC office, he noticed two teenagers sitting on the concrete steps adjacent to the abortuary. They were wearing school ...

The raven still croaks at Christmas

Donald DeMarco The Interim Christmas is a time of peace and merriment. And we are most reluctant to celebrate the birth of Christ in any other way. Yet, as scholars have informed us, the first Christmas was shadowed by a power-hungry king who had no compunction about killing babies. He was, as the American poet John Richard Moreland identifies him, "Herod heedless of his people's tears!" We want to confine Herod to the ... (Continue reading)

Democrats abort their future

Fr. Richard John Neuhaus Special to The Interim Survey research and common sense combine in telling us that children tend to share the values of their parents, including their political views and way of life.
