Someday, our leaders may use the ‘G’ word

Doreen Beagan It says on the radio and TV and in the papers: the majority of Canadians support same-sex “marriage.” Also on the radio and TV, and the premise of many comedy routines, is: the majority of Canadians hate George Bush. But I don’t. I believe same-sex marriage” is an oxymoron and I’m glad George Bush holds the same view. War is [...]

Saving Canada

The Vatican phoned! It was a prelate in the cardinal’s office in charge of totally disastrous situations. I learned that I had just been appointed grand inquisitor! There hadn’t been a grand inquisitor appointed since the Spanish Inquisition. Here I was, a humble layman and my job was to address a serious case of heresy affecting Canada. I was provided with amazing [...]

Just weeks to go

Christina Tuns My Darling Baby: Over the past couple of weeks I have been reminded how quickly one can go from saying I can’t wait for this pregnancy to be over to I just want to be pregnant as long as possible.

What a queer world

On Jan. 20, the National Post reported that the Women’s Secretariat, an agency of the federal government that focuses on women’s issues, has called for scholarly papers on the effects of polygamy on women and children which it says could become a legal reality now that Canada is on the verge of approving same-sex “marriage.” Later that day, Stephen Harper suggests that [...]

The will of God vs. delusion

Roy Leishman Consider the following pronouncement: “Homosexual conduct constitutes a moral problem in four ways: it violates the will of God as an offence against the proper expression of sexuality in monogamous marriage; by misuse of natural functions, homosexual activity is a sin against the self; since it involves at least one other person of the same sex, with or without his [...]

A time for outrage

Rev. Royal Hamel “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” A question keeps gnawing away in the back of my mind, “Where is the moral outrage”? Prime Minister Martin, the minister of justice and a handful of judges are hell-bent on imposing state-sanctioned sodomy on all of Canada. They keep saying, “It’s only about civil marriage.” [...]

Charter the root of our problems

‘Generation Pro-Choice’ may be the last

Commentary by Donald DeMarco The Interim The story is told of the airline captain who announced some “good news” and some “bad news” to his passengers. The good news was that the plane was travelling smoothly at 30,000 feet and steadily at a speed of 500 miles per hour. The bad news was that the pilot had no idea where he was [...]

Don’t trust these politicians

Commentary by Kate McMillan The Interim The B.C. Human Rights Tribunal heard a case recently in which two women claimed the Knights of Columbus, a Roman Catholic men’s society, discriminated against them by refusing to permit the renting of a hall for a same-sex wedding reception. And so it begins – or, shall I say, continues. I hold no particular religious beliefs. [...]
