Gay wedding cakes and the Ayatollahs of tolerance and diversity

Gay wedding cakes and the Ayatollahs of tolerance and diversity

While Christians are being slaughtered throughout the Middle East; while their churches are being burned; yea, while women and homosexuals are being stoned to death, we now learn that what really arouses the ire of Western liberals is that gay couples in America have to trudge yards, sometimes blocks, to purchase their wedding cakes. Since The Wizard of Oz is one of the favourite films of homosexual audiences, allow me ... (Continue reading)

Truth in transition

L anguage is rooted in our common experience of the world. As every toddler quickly learns, each thing has a name, and every object within the range of the child’s eye and pointing finger has a word by which it can be called. After a time, the same vocabulary that clothes the visible world with language is used to dress the otherwise invisible world of thought: a “stance” can be taken, a point can be “seen,” and ...

Coren is wrong on homosexuality

Coren is wrong on homosexuality

National Affairs Rory Leishman Pro-lifers across Canada have been dismayed by the decision of Michael Coren to endorse same-sex “marriage” and leave the Catholic Church. What could have led this erstwhile champion of the Catholic Church and the traditional principles of Judeo-Christian morality so sadly astray? When Coren first disclosed that he had “moved on” in his thinking on same-sex “marriage” in a column last year in ... (Continue reading)

Little reality in reality TV

The recent scandal involving Josh Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting has prompted calls for the cancellation of the show and speculation that the whole genre of reality TV might have played itself out. While I don’t think that the end is in sight for the most cost-effective production model TV has invented since the game show, ... (Continue reading)

CLC's Jack Fonseca said protests against sex-ed will continue. Parents across Ontario are still outraged at the changes proposed to the provincial sexual education curriculum.

Fight against Wynne’s sex-ed curriculum continues

Even the media acknowledged the “thousands” of protesters at Queen’s Park on April 14 as a large multicultural crowd heard speakers, displayed signs, and chanted that they would never accept the planned new sex-ed curriculum being foisted upon Ontario students by Kathleen Wynne’s Liberal government. Organizers estimate that half the people at the protest were Muslims, most of them women, while there were also large contingents of Sikhs and Russian ... (Continue reading)

Brown the ‘clear choice’ in Ontario PC leadership race

Brown the ‘clear choice’ in Ontario PC leadership race

Monte McNaughton said that Patrick Brown shares his social conservative convictions, but also the best approach to party revitalization. While there was no risk of vote-splitting in the preferential ballot system, Monte McNaughton’s withdrawal leaves one social conservative in the Ontario Progressive Conservative leadership race. On April 9, with about a month ... (Continue reading)

Sex radical wants B.C. to ape Ontario’s early sex ed

‘Younger children are easier to teach’ As Ontario parents gird themselves for a battle over the planned sex education curriculum, British Columbia is quietly promoting a less radical revamp of its entire pubic school curriculum across the board, sex ed included, with far less fanfare.  Some of the elements that alarm Ontario mothers and fathers are there, such as the use of condoms in Grade six, but from the general outline published so far, B.C. is apparently not ...

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

Analysis of Ontario’s Health and Physical Education Curriculum 2015

  The health and physical education curriculum for Ontario needed to be updated, but the manner and content of the “updating” has been dishonest and disrespectful toward parents. The process has been a continuation of the social engineering launched by this provincial government in 2008-2010 under then Education Minister Kathleen Wynne. Unhappy with the pace of implementation of its Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy the Liberal government amended the Education ... (Continue reading)

The Liberals’ desperate turn

The Liberals’ desperate turn

The Liberal Party has heeded that old adage of advertising: if you have a problem, feature it.  After decades in the ascendancy as the most winningest party in the West, they have all but collapsed. A string of feckless leaders – Martin, Dion, Ignatieff – have left the Natural Governing Party without their aura of inevitability. But their very desperation has attuned them to the weaknesses of their thin-principled ... (Continue reading)
