Over one third of Ontario’s English Catholic school boards support ‘Pride Month’

Eleven of Ontario’s 29 English Catholic school boards explicitly acknowledged June as “Pride Month,” even though “Pride” events are known for celebrating homosexuality, transsexualism, and other sexually deviant behaviors. The Catholic boards acknowledged “Pride Month” in the context of assurances that Catholic schools are inclusive and welcoming to all and often used the tagline: “We are all wonderfully made,” with an illustration [...]

Virtue of who you are, vote pro-life

Jeff Gunnarson, President of Campaign Life Coalition By Jeff Gunnarson Vote only for pro-life candidates I think it’s time we label voters like me and many other “social conservatives.” I would like to substitute the word virtue as the term used to describe a certain political type, a social conservative (socon). In my case, and my circle of friends, it [...]

Tory establishment does not seem to want pro-lifers

The CPC leadership race may not end well The Conservative leadership race reflects an internal struggle for the soul of the Conservative Party between two main groups: the Eastern Establishment (made up mostly of Red Tories) and the social conservatives grassroots of the party.

For the 2020 race, the party establishment set very demanding qualification criteria: garnering 3,000 signatures from current members and $300,000 in donations. The purpose of the signatures is laudable [...]

Neither rump nor stinking albatross

Social conservatives are an unignorable part of Conservative Party Those awful social conservatives, how could they! They cost the Conservatives the election again! The “progressive” overtures the Conservatives had made on abortion and other issues near and dear to the hearts of woke culture were deemed insufficient offerings. The stinking albatross of the social conservatives had to be purged. With the rules [...]

Candidates ignored euthanasia

Despite urgency of euthanasia, CPC front-runners do not address issue The Conservative leadership candidates have not focused closely on the issue of so-called Medical Aid in Dying, or MAiD (euthanasia), even though the government is debating the expansion of euthanasia through Bill C-7.

COVID-19 double standards

Evil spirits

Light is Right Joe Campbell Of course I believe in ghosts. I’ve been one. So have most writers who detoured through public relations on the way to more honourable callings. Chances are they’ve ghostwritten letters, speeches, articles, even books, not to mention jokes, apologies, eulogies, and marriage proposals. In public relations, things are not as they seem. For some years, [...]

Conservative judicial activism?

National Affairs Rory Leishman Should morally enlightened judges strike down any statute that sanctions pornography, abortion, or euthanasia? The late, great Antonin Scalia did not think so. As a devout Catholic, he clearly understood that pornography, abortion, and euthanasia are unmitigated evils, yet as one of the most learned judges ever to serve on the Supreme Court of the United [...]
