The Charter and gay rights

It is hard to imagine gay rights activists being so successful in getting their agenda implemented, were it not for the complicity of sympathetic courts invoking the Charter of Rights and Freedoms in various rulings to advance special rights for homosexuals in piecemeal fashion over the course of several years. Between 1995 and 1999, the Supreme Court of Canada granted new rights to homosexuals on three separate occasions. ... (Continue reading)

Religious beliefs permitted, religious actions not so much

In 1995, Trinity Western University sought certification of a teaching program from the British Columbia College of Teachers. The BCCT governing council refused. Why?

Canada’s Charter and civil religion

Niccolò Machiavelli, the teacher of modern politicians, including Canada’s Pierre Elliott Trudeau, writes that while Romulus founded Rome, the second king, Numa Pompilius, made an even more important contribution by instituting its civil religion.

Human life must precede things

Jan. 21, the date that President George W. Bush chose for his fellow Americans to honour the sanctity of human life, is significant for two reasons. First, it falls on a Sunday, the Lord’s Day. Secondly, it is one day prior to the 34th anniversary of the infamous Roe v Wade decision that drove a sword into the nation’s commitment to the sanctity of human life, leaving a wound that has ...

The sad story of ‘Tiny Tim’

“Did I hear you gentlemen say, ‘Pro-life’?” She was the only woman in the restaurant in which I happened to be grabbing a late lunch with CLC Sault Ste.
