Who Shall Inherit the Earth?

Donald DeMarco, Commentary:            “Inherit” is a generational term. It implies the passage from one generation to another. If all the unborn were aborted, no one would be alive to inherit the Earth. The question arises:  are some less worthy of inheriting the Earth than others? It seems outrageous to our moral sensibilities that anyone could determine who is [...]

Resolve to do more

We understand that many pro-life activists already do a lot for the movement to restore moral sanity in a Culture of Death, but if we are honest with ourselves, all of us can do a little more. Let us resolve to act like 2023 will be the year we work to end abortion—even though barring some great unforeseen development that is not [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
