On July 28, Statistics Canada released new data on the main causes of death in Canada for 2006, the most recent year available. When looking at the table of leading causes of death for all age groups combined, we read that the #1 cause of death is malignant neoplasms, i.e. cancer. However, their table did not include abortion deaths for obvious political reasons. So where would abortion rank in this table? Read the rest of this entry »
Paycheck in Development & Peace
TORONTO, July 30, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The newly released edition of Canada’s Catholic Register includes the letter of apology to Campaign Life Coalition (CLC) by the Canadian Catholic Organization for Development & Peace (D&P), the official development arm of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. D&P issued the letter in response to a threat of legal action by CLC after D&P made a number of slanderous statements about the national pro-life organization in a 10-page Question and Answer document.
The letter, signed by D&P executive director Michael Casey, apologizes for the statements and retracts them unreservedly. The letter appears in full on the back page of the current edition of the Catholic Register.
The slanderous statements that have been retracted were:
- “These groups are part of the far right wing fringe element of North American society and have themselves been associated with groups and individuals who have resorted to violence to publicize their cause and achieve their objectives.”
- “These single-issue militant advocacy groups, particularly those focusing on anti-abortion advocacy, continuously misrepresent facts and distort reality to serve their purpose.”
Responding to these statements, the D&P letter states: “DEVELOPMENT AND PEACE acknowledges that any inferred or implied references to Campaign Life Coalition in these quotations are false, and we unreservedly retract these comments. We extend our sincere apologies to Campaign Life Coalition for any embarrassment that this document may have caused.”
After the letter is reproduced in the Register, CLC comments: “CLC thanks D&P for setting the record straight.”

Today, the Ayatollahs come in all shapes and sizes…most notably the government secular ones who try and force sodomy into the education system.
Squeaker in Eco-Frauds
It seems the climate change fear-mongerers have tripped themselves up with exaggerated claims. It’s not unusual for us to read headlines about a certain region warming faster than everywhere else on Earth. Typically, such articles refer to the Arctic and are accompanied by cataclysmic predictions of rising water levels. However, nowadays, it seems that scientists from virtually every region on Earth are claiming that their region is warming faster than everywhere else, which is simply not possible.
Squeaker in Homosexuality
It’s so uplifting to see a clergyman clearly and charitably stating the truth. May God bless him.
Squeaker in Homosexuality, International Politics, Socialism
Just when you thought the world couldn’t get any crazier, we break a new record on the dumb-ometer. It’s worse than dumb. It’s outright evil.
In Spain, a TV network called Intereconomia has just been fined by the socialist government for ads that allegedly “attack the dignity” of homosexuals. Sounds pretty serious, eh? So what horrible things did the TV network show in its ads? After all, as Christians, we may disagree with the homosexual lifestyle, but we still want to show them respect. So what heinous ads did the TV network show?
Squeaker in CCCB, Development & Peace, Pro-Life Activism
At the end of their last Plenary Assembly, on October 23, 2009, the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops expressed their desire to be more involved in pro-life work. That was welcome news at the time. However, last week marked 9 months since that lofty promise and we haven’t seen much action. On the contrary, we’ve seen regression. That being said, it’s still not too late to move forward.
A great example, even if it’s politically incorrect.
Out with the communists!
Ain’t this the truth?
Think of all of the Catholic scandals that have been exposed and the frauds that have been busted.
Viva the internet!
It’s encouraging to see so many young people celebrating the Resurrection!
Squeaker in Catholic Scandals
In an earlier post, we looked at how Fr. Raymond Gravel butchered the Church’s teaching on the Eucharist. Today we gain some insight into his views of Truth and Divine Revelation. Once again, we’ll rely Fr. Gravel’s own words.
Squeaker in Euthanasia
Parliamentarians, who defeated a bill to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide last spring, are now stuyding what pushes people to want to kill themselves in order to develop positive alternatives, such as palliative care, support for people with disabilities and the elderly. This is a hugely encouraging development, another sign that pro-life forces are shaking things up. Read the rest of this entry »
Watch this amazing story of Janet Boynes. It’s very inspiring how she overcame so many obstacles in her life.
From the Mail Online. Abortion=bad. Breastfeeding=good.
Squeaker in Abortion, Catholicism
The video below shares a very uplifting story and illustrates the power of the prayer of priests. Four priests positioned themselves at the four corners of an abortion facility in Illinois and started praying a powerful prayer of exorcism. Interesting stuff started to happen almost immediately. Watching the video below. Two key points to take away from this incident: Read the rest of this entry »
Squeaker in Religious Persecution
It’s great to see people mobilize to defend an innocent man who was unjustly dismissed by autocratic thugs. Keep up the good work. We need more of this.
The university will be investigating the firing of Dr. Kenneth Howell. I suggest you drop them a line to put in your 2 cents worth:

Squeaker in Catholicism, Contraception, Homosexuality, Marriage, Same-sex "marriage"
Many people have the impression that the Catholic Church thinks sex is bad. This belief may have been reinforced by some over-reactions by members of the Church to the abuses of sexuality that have occurred in the last 50 years. However, the Church actually teaches that sexual union, when properly understood, is very good. It is sacred, beautiful and glorious! Read the rest of this entry »
This says it all.
Squeaker in Abortion, Development & Peace, International Politics
Hmmm… This sounds awfully familiar… But I can’t seem to connect the dots…
Ah yes! Of course! Isn’t this the same as what Development and Peace is doing in many countries of the Global South? I.e. funding pro-abortion groups that are lobbying to overturn legislation in order to legalize abortion? We’ve certainly seen it in the Philippines, Peru, El Salvador and East Timor, to name a few off the top of my head.
Actually, in the case of East Timor, the pro-aborts succeeded and abortion was legalized under some circumstances in June 2009. The blood of those babies is on our hands.
