‘Green’ crazies seek to cut an already-low population

Jonathon Porritt, a so-called "green" adviser to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, argues that it is "irresponsible" for families to have more than two children. How can anyone take this man seriously? Britain has a total fertility rate of just 1.66. That's far below the rate of 2.1 children per woman that is necessary just to sustain the existing population.

Good television, mixed messages

If you believe the critics, the most watched shows in America today are Mad Men, Damages, Rescue Me, Breaking Bad and Weeds, and not American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, NCIS, Grey's Anatomy and CSI: Miami. While average ratings for the big networks are falling, it's a testament to the profound gravity and cultural triumph of "quality cable" - the roster of [...]

Time to resurrect the debate

      It would be absurd and misleading to call it an anniversary. That word is indelibly linked with celebration, joy and the marking of an achievement. It is 40 years since the Omnibus Bill was passed, decriminalizing homosexuality and allowing abortion and contraception. Interestingly enough, it also imposed stricter gun control and harsher laws for animal cruelty. In [...]

Is abortion genocide?

  The Genocide Awareness Project, which draws parallels between abortion, slavery and the Holocaust, is what the pundits call "divisive." Using images of aborted children, lynched slaves and murdered Jews, the powerful visual displays of the Genocide Awareness Project (GAP) attempt to show the similarity between abortion and these other dark chapters of human history. However, critics of GAP - of which [...]

Canadian malfeasance at the UN

  The 42nd session of the UN Commission on Population and Development (CPD) was held March 30 - April 3, just weeks after a UN Commission on the Status of Women meeting. Pro-life, pro-family forces did not have much time to rest, but their input and presence was instrumental at this year's CPD. The draft resolution presented to the delegations before the [...]

Corporations continue to promote perversion, death

PepsiCo, which owns Pepsi, Frito Lay, Tropicana, Gatorade and Quaker, has been reported to have donated more than $1 million to homosexual groups, while refusing to give money to organizations opposing the homosexual agenda. It's part of a long history of the company's support for homosexual causes, which has attracted a boycott (www.boycottpepsico.com). According to Children of God for Life (www.cogfor life.org), [...]
