01 Feb 2008 Liberal MP Launches Motion to Stop Human Rights Commission Squelching of Free Speech

By Hilary White (from www.lifesitenews.com) OTTAWA, January 31, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A British Columbia Parliamentarian, Keith Martin, has called for the abolition of the clause in the Canadian Human Rights Act that makes it possible for special interest groups to file petty grievance complaints through the Human Rights Commissions. Martin today presented the motion to Parliament in the face of the ongoing scandals of Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals being used to silence journalists, Christian pastors and political writers on a variety of controversial topics. The motion states, "That, in the opinion of the House, subsection 13(1) of the Canadian Human Rights Act should be deleted from the Act." Subsection 13(1) makes it a "discriminatory practice" for individuals or groups to communicate messages that are "likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt". Critics of this section of the Act have long said that the clause creates the precise equivalent of a "thought crime".

20 Jan 2008 Ezekiel’s Vision of God’s Throne and Current Events

 "Each one went straight ahead. Wherever the spirit would go, they would go, without turning as they went." Ezekiel 1:12The first vision which the LORD shows Ezekiel is the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD on His throne in brilliant light. The LORD is served by four living creatures and four wheels, who all move at the same time in the same direction. They move back and forth, up and down, and sometimes they stand still. But in whatever direction they move, they always move straight,...

10 Jan 2008 Can a word be murdered?: Committing verbicide against “family”

by Michael Wagner People think and communicate through language, and each language uses words with particular meanings. Thus words are important tools in thinking and communicating. As George Orwell so famously pointed out decades ago, it’s possible to channel people’s thoughts by manipulating the words they use. Thoughts can be restricted if words are not available to carry certain “forbidden” meanings. How can you think about something if you don’t have any words to represent that something?

10 Jan 2008 Losing our religion

Why the government’s “neutral stance” hurts Christians and our country by Michael Wagner*            We live in a pluralistic society – we live in a country made up of many different groups that often hold to wildly differing views on the most important matters in life. For example, in the religious realm, Canada and the other developed English-speaking countries contain Christians, Muslims, Hindus, secular humanists, Jewish people, as well as other groups. In order for all these groups to peacefully coexist, it is commonly believed that the government must be “neutral” on religious and moral issues. If the government was to favor the perspective of one group, the other groups would suffer discrimination or even oppression. Thus the existence of a pluralistic society requires the neutrality of the government.

10 Jan 2008 The Birth Control Pill and Abortion

by Jaclyn VanderHorst* Our Father knits us together in our mothers’ wombs in a very unique way that has never been duplicated in all of history. A new human being is created when the sperm fertilizes the egg and after this combination of the male’s and female’s separate chromosomes there are no major additions. The sperm and the egg cannot exist or develop on their own, but once joined this new human will simply require the right environment and the right nourishment to grow and continue to develop through varying degrees of dependency and independence onward through their lifespan. God has created and guides this wonderful process, and so another person is made in His image, for His purpose and to live to His pleasure and glory.
