Justin Trudeau contradicts his Father on Abortion:

In a letter dated Dec.  21, 1981 to G. Emmett Cardinal Carter, Roman Catholic Archbishop of Toronto, Trudeau said that the government of Canada would never allow the Charter of Rights and Freedoms to dictate abortion policy. The cardinal had been lobbying for a right-to-life amendment to the Charter. Here are the salient parts of that Trudeau letter:

“… Since the November 2, 1981 Conference of First Ministers, Parliament’s authority has been strengthened by the addition of the notwithstanding clause to the Charter.
Should a court decide at some future date that sections 7 or 15 do establish a right to abortion on demand, Parliament will continue to legislate on the matter by overriding the court’s decision and the specific Charter right as interpreted by the court.

Archbishop Richard Smith has a turn.

Everyone, e-mail your bishop and tell him to get into the game.

I have always said that if you ask the wrong question, you will always get the wrong answer.  That, in a nutshell, is the problem with pro-abort politicians.  The problem is not with the pro-abort politicians. Wrong question. The right questions is:  “What’s wrong with the bishops who taught them by their silence?”  Ask the right question.  Get the right answer to the problem.

For the first time in a very long time (if ever) in the very sad abortion-contraceptive history of the Canadian episcopacy, Archbishop Prendergast of Ottawa has made some encouraging remarks about finally – at long last – getting to the crux of the abortion matter with “Catholic” politicians who somehow think dismembering a baby is somehow consistent with their Faith.  I am unsure if we should get too excited about it, but sometimes it’s good to hold on to a bit of hope, even if it is short-lived.

Edmonton’s Roman Catholic Archbishop is taking exception to comments made Wednesday by federal liberal leader Justin Trudeau.   Trudeau says his party will make sure no one who opposes abortion will be accepted as future candidates for the Liberals.

Archbishop Richard Smith says it’s outrageous that the comments came on the eve of the March for Life rallies across the country.  “To time that statement to coincide with these voices is obviously a deliberate slap in the face.”  The archbishop said thousands of people were coming together across Canada to defend all life, including that in the womb.

 I believe personal morality should be framed by the individual, and while I agree passionately with marital fidelity I would not want to be part of a college that tried to impose such an idea from above. (Source)

This comment, along with many others, prove that Coren no longer has much of any kind of credibility as a Catholic.  He has effectively personalized morality to individual tastes and refused to accept the idea that we are not only accountable to ourselves, but also to the larger Christian community and ultimately to God.

And to claim that Gays have to “forever refrain from sex” is some kind of boogeyman and totally unrealistic, Coren is dismissing the sacrifices of many people who choose to be chaste their whole lives in accordance with what Jesus taught – whether single, religious, or clerical.

“Many of us donated our life savings. … This is our home,” Li Xile, a local from Wenzhou, told the Times.

When the liberals get their chance here in the West, they’ll do the same.  The gentle, tolerant and diversity crowd that they are.

Right on.

The answer is no.  Those anti-Christian bigots at the Law Society of Upper Canada say so.

So the Law Society of Upper Canada (LSUC) which regulates lawyers in Ontario has recently declared that if you are a Christian and seek to associate with other Christians and do so in forming a law school, you cannot be admitted to practice law in society.   And why?  What is the reason for such a blatant persecution of people who don’t worship the same-sex god as the liberal elites of the legal establishment?

Jonathan Kay has an interesting article on the subject here.

I also have something to ask the LSUC.  I am sure they are familiar with this argument.  It goes something like this:

How is a Christian’s practice of Godly sex a threat to Gay Canada?  Have we not heard that refrain before?  You know, “How is Gay Sex a threat to you?”  Remember that one?

It appears that the LSUC is just spitting mad that anyone would abstain from sex for any reason.  They see this abstention as some kind of threat to their own promiscuous ways, and they seek to enforce their sexual ideology by ensuring that there is no public association which consensually demurs from the prevailing sexual dogma of our legal high priests.

Tolerance and diversity?  You must be joking.

I’m not sure if totalitarianism has a sexual orientation, but I think we can all see what it is if it indeed has one.

Most vexing of all is Mozilla’s attempt to present this forced resignation as if it is consistent with an embrace of diversity and openness. Its public statements have been an embarrassment of illogic, as I suspect the authors of those statements well know.  (Source)

Not all liberals, apparently, agree with the Jackboot.

High Noon and the Ranchers win it.  So much for the “Common Good”.  Smirk.

This is the kind of thing that inspires.

Militia members from Montana and Utah have already arrived at the ranch and indicate plenty more are headed that way. Operation Mutual Aid, a coalition of state militias, is planning a coordinated effort of support, according to West Mountain Rangers member Ryan Payne. “They all tell me they are in the process of mobilizing as we speak,” he said earlier this week. Payne said the county should prepare for “a band of soldiers” responding to the standoff, explaining militias are necessary to be “the barrier between the oppressed and the tyrants.” (Source)

Now you know why Americans see the right to bear arms as fundamental to protecting their freedom.    And they’re right, too.  Sometimes thugs only understand the justice that comes from looking down a barrel of a gun.  If you donna speaka da language, you donna make them capiche.

Watch video here.

In 1993, The Federal Bureau of Land Management created new fees on public grazing land in Clark County, Nevada. BLM officials came up with these fees to discourage ranching in order to protect an endangered tortoise. Bundy refused to pay for grazing on land that he and his family had been using for over 100 years. Now BLM officers have surrounded the ranch and are forcibly removing his cattle. In the meantime, as protests have grown, the BLM has restricted free speech to designated “zones”, and even violently confronted protesters.

Sad days for Mozilla!

Comments 2 Comments »

Pardon this interruption of your TruthRevolt experience. Mozilla recently forced its CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign over his personal support for traditional marriage. The firing followed a vicious smear campaign against Eich by dating website OKCupid, in which OKCupid blocked Mozilla users from visiting their website.  We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access TruthRevolt, given Mozilla’s crackdown on political and religious positions held by millions of Americans. To sign our petition vowing to uninstall or cease using Mozilla Firefox, Mozilla users can still click here. Going forward we urge you to consider a different web browser for accessing TruthRevolt.org. (Source)

Socon or Bust has decided to block access to its blog for any user who is visiting us using Mozilla’s FireFox.  Socon or Bust calls on all Catholic Bloggers and other bloggers of good will who value marriage and freedom of speech to stand against Mozilla and block them.

What You Can Do

It is important that people give Mozilla pushback–and a lot of it–because the less people suffer the consequences of this kind of behavior, the more it will be invited in the future.

You want Christians to experience a new and even worse persecution than what they’re facing now? Do nothing.

You want to fight back? Here’s what you can do . . .

1) Mozilla has a web page where you can leave feedback on its Firefox browser.

THAT WEB PAGE IS HERE.

At the time of this writing, the feedback in the last day has been 93% negative, and many of the comments are withering. You can read them here.

2) You can tell them of your displeasure by social media, including:

Greetings Firefox User!

Unfortunately because you tried to access Socon or Bust using Mozilla’s FireFox, we cannot permit you to read our Blog (note:  our older posts are still accessible, but this will be inaccessible to you in the near future as well).  In April 2014, Mozilla forced its CEO, Brendan Eich, to resign over his personal support for traditional marriage. The firing followed a vicious smear campaign against Eich by dating website OKCupid, in which OKCupid blocked Mozilla users from visiting their website.  We would therefore prefer that our users not use Mozilla software to access Socon or Bust, given Mozilla’s crackdown on political and religious positions held by millions of North Americans.

Please consider using another Browser to access Socon or Bust, as well as dumping Firefox completely for all your browsing activities.  Unless we stand against this tyranny now, the price later will be much, much greater.  Thanks for your support and consider signing the pledge to dump Firefox.

What Else You Can Do

“Mozilla believes both in equality and freedom of speech. Equality is necessary for meaningful speech. And you need free speech to fight for equality,” Mozilla Executive Chairwoman Mitchell Baker wrote. “Figuring out how to stand for both at the same time can be hard.”

The logic of a liberal always astounds me.  There is no such thing as free speech for a Gay Stormtrooper.  Now, they want to ensure that you are banned from earning a living, should you dare -  in the most innocuous way – to oppose what they stand for.  They operate on one simple premise. It’s not logic or common sense or nature or based on any philosophy.  It’s simply based on instilling FEAR and promoting genuine hatred for those who dare oppose them.

This was never about marriage. It was about forcing submission to the Gaylords.

The good news is that there very well might be a formal division in the Christian churches (not totally unlike we have in China today):  those who lick the Gay Jackboot and are recognized by the State’s “Human Rights” Commissars…and those who don’t.

At least the dividing line will be a lot clearer than it is today.  For that we can be grateful.  The Lord is going to sift us through suffering.  That’s the only way to fix our collective pathetic witness and boot the pretend Christians from our midst.
