UN chastises Vatican over Catholic moral teachings

UN chastises Vatican over Catholic moral teachings

On January 31, the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child released a report castigating the Vatican for its moral teachings. The committee, which provides oversight to the 1990 Convention on the Rights of the Child, focused on the Catholic Church’s handling of cases of abuse of children by priests, but in its 16-page report it also took the liberty of calling upon the Vatican to reconsider ...

Legislating morality

The old trope is not whether we legislate morality, but whose morality do we legislate. The question is pertinent in regards to the issues we deal with at The Interim like abortion, the family, homosexual rights, and religious freedom. At Intercollegiate Review, Amelia Sims addresses the issue in a short post entitled, "Is not legislating morality an option?" And of course the proper response is that virtually all legislation, even taxes and treaties, are legislating some sort of morality. ... (Continue reading)

Consumerism produces a throwaway culture

Michael Coren Journalist for Life Not all pro-lifers are Catholics, but every Catholic worthy of the name should be pro-life. As such, what the Pope says and writes is extremely important for the pro-life community, and after Evangelii Gaudium or “The Joy of the Gospel,” was issued there was enough hysteria to fill a CBC show about the achievements of Henry Morgentaler! This papal statement was ... (Continue reading)

Teacher resources push gay agenda

Teacher resources push gay agenda

A teacher resource uncovered by the Toronto Sun that suggests teachers change the names of Mother’s and Father’s Day is only the tip of the iceberg in terms of political correctness when it comes to homosexualist propaganda being foisted upon Ontario schools. The Social Justice Begins With Me program, a “literature-based resource kit for early years to Grade 8” is intended to expand upon We’re Erasing Prejudice for Good ... (Continue reading)

Supreme Court hears prostitution challenge

The Supreme Court of Canada asked government lawyers tough questions as they heard arguments for and against the law on prostitution. The federal Criminal Code provisions criminalizing brothels, pimping or “living off the avails” of prostitution, and communication to buy sex was struck down in 2010 by the Ontario Superior Court. In 2012, a 3-2 ruling by the Ontario Court of Appeal upheld the decriminalization of brothels and pimping as long as women were not being exploited by the pimps. ... (Continue reading)

Mad pride

Light is Right Joe Campbell My editor had got me an exclusive interview with Professor Hans Bunglethorpe. “I’ve never heard of Professor Bunglethorpe,” I said. “Of course, you haven’t,” he replied. “Nobody has. You’ll be the first reporter he has agreed to talk to. Once you’ve broken the story, everyone will have heard of him.” “Everyone?” “He’s made a landmark discovery. He’ll be drowning in publicity” “It sounds like a ... (Continue reading)

Openly gay athlete hailed as a hero

Openly gay athlete hailed as a hero

Jason Collins Last year, center Jason Collins was by, some basketball metrics, one of the worst players in the National Basketball Association. He was benched for 24 of the final 29 games of the season after the Washington Wizards acquired him. A free agent, he was not expected to find a new employer and would probably retire. Then he came out of the closet as North America’s first openly ... (Continue reading)

Tolerance for me, but not for thee

Arün Smith favours diversity, just not diversity of opinion. So in early February he removed the free-speech wall at Carleton University – stole the paper and destroyed the frame – then, on Facebook, rationalized his violent direct action. In his incoherent philosophy, “liberty requires liberation, and this liberation is prevented by providing space for either more platitudes, or for the expression of hate.” He vowed to repeat his crime should the free-speech wall be restored. Carleton’s stifling cultural climate, known to ... (Continue reading)

Christian charity ‘against Canadian values’: NDP leader

An evangelical group came under scrutiny from the Canadian International Development Agency, after the Canadian Press reported Crossroads Christian Communication Inc. received foreign aid money to help build wells and toilets in Uganda. The article, written by Lina Dib and Fannie Olivie, attempted to link Uganda’s consideration of imposing the death penalty for homosexual acts to the religious organization’s view of homosexuality as a “perversion” and a “sin.” The Harper government has condemned the Uganda plan to make sodomy a ...

Girls is Sex and the City for millennials

Girls is Sex and the City for millennials

Lena Duham It’s a truism that every generation believes that the ones immediately following it will preside over the dismantling of every social, cultural and economic virtue that they took for granted, a rite of passage for senior generations that begins roughly when they realize that they’ve slipped out of the green vale of youth. There’s no objective way of proving this imminent decline, but since popular culture began to edge ... (Continue reading)

A challenge for abundant life

In a recent video battle against gay activist/sex-advice columnist Dan Savage, Family Research Council president Tony Perkins quoted an old headline: “Dan Savage Explains Why He Started ‘It Gets Better’ Project: ‘When a gay teenager commits suicide, it’s because he can’t picture a life for himself that’s filled with joy,’ columnist tells MTV News.” Incredibly, Perkins used the image of that headline as part of an otherwise sound case against Savage. There’s certainly a place for ... (Continue reading)
