Today is Father’s Day.  The difference between a father and a sperm donor comes down to 2 things:  relationship and sacrifice.  If a man does not engage with his offspring, then he’s just a sperm donor.  The sperm donor might donate through “conventional means” or unconventional ones.  But he’s still just a sperm donor.   Sperm donors are the logical extension of fathers who don’t father, who don’t care, who don’t discipline, who don’t sacrifice, who don’t give a damn…who don’t love.  Why bother with the messy business of separating oneself emotionally from women and children when you can get paid to donate?  It’s kind of like giving blood.  Sperm donors masturbate and give their sperm instead.  Think of it as a community service.

Everything said in this video about American bishops applies equally to Canadian bishops.  Please pray for them.

New York, NY—MAY 31, 2010— The Commission on Parenthood’s Future today released internationally the groundbreaking report My Daddy’s Name is Donor: A New Study of Young Adults Conceived Through Sperm Donation, co-investigated by Elizabeth Marquardt, Norval D. Glenn, and Karen Clark. The report reveals stunning findings about the lives of adult offspring of sperm donation, one of the most common reproductive technologies and one that has been practiced widely in the U.S. and around the world for decades….

This Sunday is Father’s Day.  There will always be a Father’s Day for true Fathers, but it is not at all guaranteed that this holiday will not be demoted so as not to offend all of the sperm donors out there.  If we call it “Sperm Donor’s Day”, it kind of catches everyone and no one is excluded.

According to news reports, some rogue members of the Irish Republican Army (IRA) are still devising terrorist acts:

BELFAST – Security forces in Northern Ireland have defused a 300 lb (136 kg) bomb in an abandoned van outside a police station, which would have been deadly if it had been detonated, police said on Friday.
(…)
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) said dissident Republicans opposed to Northern Ireland’s peace process had called in a coded warning to a Belfast newspaper but declined to say which dissident group had claimed responsibility. (Source)

So, he is prohibited from practicing real medicine but he can still do abortions…do I have this right?

I mean abortions are such a safe procedure and quite harmless. No botchups there. No need for a high standard of care and professionalism.

It’s a good thing that we all have 1) a high regards for abortionists and 2) that we think the procedure is quite safe and harmless.

Otherwise, we might get the wrong impression that women who were seeking abortion aren’t really that special.

LYONS, June 17, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Approximately 200 young Catholics came to the defense of the Cathedral of Lyons, France, during a “kiss-in” protest held by homosexuals in front of the building last month. The homosexuals reportedly came on the eve of the “World Day Against Homophobia” in May to kiss each other in front of the cathedral, presumably in protest against the Catholic Church’s 2,000-year-old condemnation of homosexual sex acts.  In a video recently released by ACI Prensa, the counter-protesters can be seen forming a line several layers deep in front of the cathedral, holding up crucifixes, the flag of Vatican City, and a large banner stating “No More Catholophobia.” They chanted slogans such as “Saint Jean (the Cathedral) is ours!” and “Europe, Youth, Christianity!” Read the rest of this entry »

If you listen to left-leaning journalists, economists and think-tanks, you’d think that the main cause of chronic child poverty in Canada is a lack of good paying jobs.  That’s not true.  The biggest cause is broken families. Read the rest of this entry »

It appears the abortionist working at the abortion clinic at 65 Bank St. in Ottawa, Krzysztof Janusz Fabisiak (CPSO#: 62857), has been disciplined by the CPSO for the following reasons :

“Allegations of Dr. Fabisiak’s professional misconduct and incompetence have been referred to the Discipline Committee of the College. It is alleged that Dr. Fabisiak failed to maintain the standard of practice of the profession and is incompetent in his care and treatment of Patient “A”, Patient “B” and 23 patients. ” Read the rest here.

A little bird has told me that abortions are way down at Morgentaler’s clinic, no doubt because of (surprise!) the abortionist failing to meet basic standards of “practice” (if you want to call it that).  These kinds of citations against abortionists, of course, are par for the course.  

The little band of faithful prayer warriors and sidewalk counsellors have been outside of the abortuary regularly since last November.  They have been maintaining a faithful vigil ever since.

If you are a believer, then believe that God is really moving.  If you’re not, just think of it as good Karma.  What goes around comes around.

By the way, 40 Days for Life is starting up again this Fall in Ottawa outside of the same abortuary.    It could be the last nail in the coffin in Canada’s most notorious abortuary.  And if Henry’s flagship goes down, the psychological damage to the pro-abort establishment will be significant. 

It could be the canary in the coal mine.

Development & Peace and its partners, of course, are doing their part in Nicaragua too.

Click on the picture to read what the abortion imperialists are trying to force on a poor, Catholic country.

It’s a good thing that we have strong and fearless Catholic bishops in this country to resist the pro-abort thugs and their abortion-pushing agendas.

Mmmm…hmmmm.

Snuffed out at 16 years old

Aqsa Parvez, snuffed out at only 16 years old

Today we were reminded of a tragic episode whereby a Muslim father living in Mississauga killed his 16-year-old daughter in 2007 with the help of his son.  The father and son pleaded guilty to second-degree murder today.  They will be sentenced to life in prison, although I don’t know if they’ll be eligible for parole.

Let it be true.

Let us no longer be dominated by bloated, pompous, and Leftist mouthpieces like the CBC.

We’ve all read many instances of unjust media attacks against the Church and against Pope Benedict.  Today I’m writing about an example of media bias that expresses itself through what they choose not to report.  The case in point involves Shane William Mark, a repeat sex offender.  Looking at his criminal history, you could argue that the justice system seriously mishandled the case.  The circumstances of his crimes and his punishments (or lack thereof) are eerily similar to some predator-priest cases.  Yet the latter have been splashed on the front pages of newspapers while the former has been ignored outside of the Ottawa area.

MEXICO CITY, Mexico, June 11, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – According to a May 21 Catholic Register article by Associate Editor Michael Swan, LifeSiteNews.com is accused of running a “nasty” campaign against the Miguel Agustin Pro Juarez Center for Human Rights, a Mexican organization funded by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development and Peace (D&P).

As LifeSiteNews has reported in numerous articles on the Center and many other groups funded by D&P, the organization has clearly and repeatedly indicated its support for the legalization and availability of abortion.  However, Swan’s article uncritically repeats the organization’s claim that they have been falsely accused, based on a single UN report that the group only contributed to, and supposedly did not endorse.

Ezra Levant, who happens to be a Jew, nonetheless stands up for Catholics when they get unjustly bashed.  He wrote a great piece in the National Post a couple of weeks ago.  Here’s an excerpt concerning the Intolerant in Chief, Gilles Duceppe, leader of the Bloc Québécois: Read the rest of this entry »

Yesterday during the homily of the Mass to mark the end of the Year of Priests, Pope Benedict called for priests to use their “rod” to defend the faithful and the Faith.  Referring to Psalm 23, he said:

“Your rod and your staff – they comfort me”: the shepherd needs the rod as protection against savage beasts ready to pounce on the flock; against robbers looking for prey. Along with the rod there is the staff which gives support and helps to make difficult crossings. Both of these are likewise part of the Church’s ministry, of the priest’s ministry. The Church too must use the shepherd’s rod, the rod with which he protects the faith against those who falsify it, against currents which lead the flock astray. The use of the rod can actually be a service of love. Today we can see that it has nothing to do with love when conduct unworthy of the priestly life is tolerated. Nor does it have to do with love if heresy is allowed to spread and the faith twisted and chipped away, as if it were something that we ourselves had invented. As if it were no longer God’s gift, the precious pearl which we cannot let be taken from us. Even so, the rod must always become once again the shepherd’s staff – a staff which helps men and women to tread difficult paths and to follow the Lord. (Source)

Today is the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  It also marks the end of the Year for Priests.  Pope Benedict celebrated Mass at St. Peter’s Basilica to mark the occasion.

In his homily, he again referred to the sex abuse scandals and offered his apologies.  But the media generally failed to report the most important excerpt in my opinion: Read the rest of this entry »

A few weeks ago, at the height of the media’s outcry in reaction to pro-life statements by Cardinal Ouellet of Quebec City, the Quebec Conference of Bishops issued a short statement calling for people to tone down the rhetoric and name calling.

The statement is quite short, just one page. Most of the space is devoted to exhorting for a calmer debate. As we’d say in French, people need to breathe through their nose.  The Church’s teaching on abortion is  summarized at the end.  The statement was published in parish bulletins across the province so many people must have read it during the homily.  :-)

At first, I was a tad disappointed over this statement since it doesn’t mention Cardinal Ouellet by name and doesn’t seek to defend him.

But after further reflection, I realized that this was an ingenious move. Whether they fully realizing what they did or whether the Holy Spirit spoke through them, I don’t know. The bottom line is that this is a very smart tactical move. Read the rest of this entry »

PETERBOROUGH, ON, June 10, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A man who caused great turmoil in the Catholic Church in Canada has been shown kindness and forgiveness by the very Bishop against whom he launched a human rights complaint.  In June 2009, Jim Corcoran, a man who self-identifies as a ‘gay’ man, launched a complaint seeking $25,000 in damages from Peterborough Bishop Nicola De Angelis, after he and his homosexual partner were forbidden from continuing as altar servers at St. Michael’s Church in Cobourg.

It is believed that this was the first case in Canada to be accepted by a human rights tribunal relating to the internal governance of the Catholic Church. The case led to fears of serious repercussions for the Church’s freedom in Canada. Throughout the public scrutiny of the case, which gained international attention, the bishop remained firm in his resolve not to permit the human rights mechanism to interfere in Church matters.

However, in May Corcoran dropped the complaint without terms or conditions after meeting with the Bishop and praying with him.

Last Sunday, Bishop De Angelis said Mass in the troubled Cobourg parish and afterward went to the home of Jim Corcoran where he had supper with Corcoran and his mother.

Normand Lester, a respected veteran journalist from Quebec, apparently wrote a virulent article against the pro-choice activists and journalists that vilified Cardinal Ouellet a few weeks ago for his pro-life statements.

When I read the article, it was a Twilight Zone moment for me.  I’m still not entirely convinced that this article is authentic because it’s impossible to find on any mainstream media outlet, with the exception of Yahoo Quebec.  It is dated May 24th and can be found here. It’s also posted on various blogs, but would you really trust a blog?  :-)
