Tidings of great consternation

And so it came to pass - in my 41st year, an angel appeared and said, ‘Yes, you are pregnant' And so it came to pass - in my 41st year, an angel appeared and said, "Yes, you are pregnant." It wasn't an angel in the conventional sense of the word; rather, it was a home pregnancy test kit from Shoppers Drug [...]

Desperately seeking saints to vote for

I finally have figured out who I'm going to vote for in the forthcoming Ontario provincial election. Right now, it's downright dangerous for taxpayers walking by Queen's Park because they're liable to be knocked down by the bags of money being thrown out the doors to pay for pre-election propaganda masquerading as informational ads. If I can't find a Family Coalition Party [...]

Crushing dissent via ‘human rights’

One of the most terrifying aspects of Canadian politics for social conservatives - at least this should be the case - is the nation's so-called "human rights" commissions and tribunals. These kangaroo courts, where historical, Judaeo-Christian principles of jurisprudence are tossed out the window, have established themselves in almost every part of Canada as the primary tool by which leftists seek to [...]

Romance versus love

By Love Refined: Letters to a Young Bride, by Dr. Alice von Hildebrand (Sophia Institute Press). Perhaps it's just me, but I once had a tendency to think of marriage in terms of romance. I had often been told that even the best marriages must weather rough times - but I was sure that mine wouldn't. As far as I was concerned, [...]

Voting pro-life: It really is the very least we can do

With a provincial election only weeks away in Ontario, and fast approaching in several other provinces, we would all do well to remember the basic principle of pro-life voting: being pro-abortion (or "pro-choice") disqualifies a person for public office. This includes those who claim to be "personally opposed" to abortion, but are unwilling to do anything to stop it.The right to life [...]

Ontario NDP has abandoned ‘the little guy’

Pro-lifers say the party aggressively promotes abortion, while claiming to be ‘family-friendly' The Ontario NDP released its election agenda in late February and despite claims that the party is "family friendly," it contained nary a word about abortion or gay rights. The much-heralded, yet quite empty, "Six Commitments" party platform seeks to undo much of the Tory government's spending cuts. It will [...]

Pro-life, even when it hurts
