Progressive solecisms (Part I)

Progressive solecisms (Part I)

Barack Obama While reassuring the world that “it has nothing to do with Islam,” whenever the Mullahs behead infidels, massacre Christians, stone immodestly dressed women, and castrate gays (in the Middle East, if you want a sex-change operation, your local shariah council will provide it free of charge), President Barack Obama has finally drawn a line in the sand against intolerance and bigotry ... in the bathrooms of America. ...

Fighting back

Fighting back

John Carpay You miss 100 per cent of the shots you don’t take, says hockey legend Wayne Gretzky. An old Dutch proverb asserts that “he who makes no mistakes usually achieves nothing at all.” These principles are being tested by courageous Canadians who, by standing up for their own freedom, are defending others’ freedoms as well. Colette Schouten is one of these courageous Canadians. She wanted to display 10,000 small pink ... (Continue reading)

Religious freedom precarious in the West

Religious freedom precarious in the West

In It’s Dangerous to Believe: Religious Freedom and Its Enemies (Harper, 192 pages), Mary Eberstadt documents how faithful Christians throughout the Western world are now living in fear of escalating religious oppression.

Wrong to blame Christianity for Orlando attack

Law Matters John Carpay If you think smoking is really, really bad, does that mean you hate smokers? Or if you believe that alcoholism is a serious health problem in Canada today, would your belief lead you to kill alcoholics, or to approve of someone else killing alcoholics? Of course not. You can disagree with a particular activity, yet not wish death upon those who engage in it. This logic applies ... (Continue reading)

Supreme Court’s bestiality madness

Our first reaction to the Supreme Court of Canada’s decision striking down part of the Criminal Code’s prohibition on bestiality was incredulousness: the newspapers and broadcasters were playing a joke on readers and viewers. Sadly, they were not. On June 9, all but one of the wise jurists on the Supreme Court decided that a ban on bestiality that did not involve actual penetration was unconstitutional. We shudder to think of the ermine-robed justices sitting in the lounge behind their ... (Continue reading)

Where is the evangelical church?

Since 1969, we, in Canada, have brutally put to death almost 4 million pre-born children. Some of these children were poisoned and burned to death with a concentrated salt solution (Saline abortion). Others were suctioned limb by limb from the womb (Suction abortion). Still others were cut up into pieces with a sharp curette (D & C and D & E abortions). Clearly, the plight of the pre-born is an emergency that calls for extraordinary action by the church of ... (Continue reading)

Challenge to pro-life flag in Prince Albert

Challenge to pro-life flag in Prince Albert

A Canadian pro-abortion group compared the pro-life movement to “racists” and “white supremacists” to get Prince Albert’s mayor to take down a pro-life flag, but could only wring from Mayor Greg Dionne the concession to consult the British Columbia Human Rights Commission over the dispute. Joyce Arthur, executive director of the Abortion Rights Coalition of Canada, sent Dionne and Prince Albert’s city council a seven-page letter hinting at legal action ... (Continue reading)
