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. Read the rest of this entry »

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

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:
Paycheck in Abortion
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.
Paycheck in Catholicism, Homosexuality
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 »
Steve G in Economics, Life & Family Issues
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 »
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.

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.
Steve G in Islam
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.
Paycheck in Freedom, Media Distortions, Social Conservativism
Let us no longer be dominated by bloated, pompous, and Leftist mouthpieces like the CBC.
The Heresy Hunter (aka TH2) has produced a thorough and well-documented review of Novalis, the “Catholic” publisher famous for its dissenting publications (see an example I wrote about here). The extent of the Novalis documents reviewed by TH2 is very impressive. What impressed me the most, however, was the accuracy of TH2′s depiction of the dissent at St. Paul’s University, where Novalis was founded. Read the rest of this entry »
Steve G in Media Distortions
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.

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:
Steve G in Catholic Scandals
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 »
Steve G in Abortion
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 »
