Christmas 1992

As this is the month of December, I thought it would be fitting to write on the wonder and mystery of Christmas. These are my thoughts as a priest and Catholic.

Like a Christmas of old

When Karen and James Hanlon of Langley B.C. were married four years ago, little did they know that after only one year of marriage, they would be abruptly separated and sent to jail.

Disobeying a court injunction prohibiting pro-lifers from picketing or rescuing outside the Everywoman’s Health Center, a newly opened [...]

Gay-sex classes near

This is our fourth article on the Toronto School Board’s decision to promote the homosexual lifestyle. Readers will not be surprised. Abortion, infanticide, abuse of women, euthanasia and homosexual activity are intimately connected to one another. In Canada, abortion and homosexual acts (done in private between adults) were legalized at the same time. The drive for abortion in the sixties was followed [...]

The Referendum: Why it failed the fixers

Let’s take one last look at why the widely touted “yes” camp lost so badly in the recent referendum. I voted “no” and I have found few pro-lifers who voted “yes”. (Joe Borowski of Winnipeg was the big exception. Sorry, Joe). Actually, I had three hundred and seventy-eight reasons for voting “no” – but I’m sure that you don’t want to hear [...]
