Pro-life not merely a religious view

Rory Leishman It is astonishing that even today so many prominent advocates of legalized abortion still think the point at which human life begins is a matter of philosophical debate and religious dogma rather than settled science. In an article entitled “Atheists and the Pro-Life Movement,” Mary FioRito of the Ethics and Public Policy Center cites the example of Justice Sonia Sotomayor [...]

Interim writer, Josie Luetke, Talk Turkey I watched Bishop Robert Barron’s interview of actor Shia LaBeouf a couple of months ago about his conversion to Catholicism. Some British singer/actor, “Oli London,” is apparently converting too, at least to Christianity, and de-transitioning back to male as a result. I wish them the best and I’m happy to hear that they’re seemingly [...]

The Nuremberg Code is not respected in Canada

John Carpay An extreme pessimist would say that the only thing man learns from history is that man learns nothing from history. In support of his argument, the extreme pessimist could point to the massive daily violations of the Nuremberg Code, created by the Nuremberg Military Tribunal in the case of United States v Karl Brandt et al., one of the Nuremberg [...]

The unacknowledged revolution

Donald De Marco He was born in a stable to poor parents. There were no nurses or doctors in attendance, but some animals and a few nearby shepherds. His home would be the small town of Nazareth about which it was said, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” This is a most unpromising beginning of a revolution. And yet, despite all its unpromising circumstances, it [...]

The curse of the mummy’s tomb is credulity

Rick McGinnis This year has been the half-century anniversary of a lot of things. I recently wrote about the 50th anniversary of The Godfather, but the significance of this cultural event wouldn’t become important to me until much later in life. More crucial to my world when I was eight years old was the Treasures of Tutankhamun exhibit, opened at the British [...]

They shall name him Emmanuel

Our story starts in Paradise. The very word, “Eden,” cannot fail to conjure images of perfection, of a natural world which offers bliss without brambles, a habitat in which the Almighty Himself walked with us in the cool of the evening (Gen 3:8). Indeed, Adam, Eve, and God made a kind of “trinity,” a harmonious community of humanity and divinity, a perfect [...]

No to a Covid Amnesty

Andrew Lawton A comedian with whom I worked on a project a while back once told me that there are no bad experiences in life – just good experiences and material. As a columnist and commentator, I’ve certainly tried to embrace this, and channel life’s unpleasantness into something constructive. That said, I must confess I could live with a bit less material than [...]

The government of Jesus, and the ‘separation of Church and State’

Harley Price It tells you something about the times that when you Google “Jesus Christ” one of the first suggestions that pops up in the auto-fill menu is “Jesus Christ Superstar.”   As a ubiquitous phenomenon of popular modern culture, the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical has been one of the most effective forces for the infantilization of the Western mind of the [...]
