National Post providing real diversity in media

Despite an inauspicious beginning, the National Post, which began publishing one year ago this month, has been a boon for pro-life and pro-family Canadians desperate for principled journalism from the mainstream media. The Post published its inaugural issue in the days following the murder of abortionist Bernard Slepian. It ran a cartoon which implied the pro-life movement was behind his death and depicted pro-lifers [...]

Fostering healthy sexuality in kids

An Ounce of Prevention: Preventing the Homosexual Condition in Today's Youth, by Don Schmierer (Nashville: Word, 1998) To some people in our culture, the title of this book is absurd and offensive. How dare anyone suggest that homosexuality is something that should be prevented! From the developmental perspective which its author Don Schmierer takes, however, it makes good sense to help young [...]

Let’s give a big warm welcome to number six billion

The impending doom that underlied the news stories when the world's population reached six billion earlier this year is unfounded, and worse, a sign of the devaluation of human life. There is little reason to believe that the earth becomes a worse place to live with each new person. However, Princeton University "ethicist" Peter Singer seems to believe so. He stated in [...]

Singleness is not a state of limbo

A young Catholic advises: ‘Let's not waste this precious time pining after what we don't have.' A place or state of temporary suffering or misery" - this is actually a definition of Purgatory, not of singleness, though more than a few singles may beg to differ.

Axworthy and Cairo+5: stacking the deck

Most of you, I am sure, remember this summer's United Nations pro-abort jamboree, affectionately billed as Cairo+5.

Mr. Lowther's office recently released copies of the letters that went back and [...]
