Sure enough, as Socon or Bust predicted yesterday, Louise Mailloux has apologized.

Kinda.

Various media are reporting that she says she’s sorry if anyone was offended by her comparison of baptism and circumcision to rape. That’s the extent of her apology. In other words, she hasn’t changed her mind. She hasn’t realized that pouring water on someone’s head has no correlation whatsoever to being violently abused. Nope. She’s just sorry anybody was offended.

So her underlying views are unchanged. Is that someone you want to have authority to vote laws in this country? If not, take 30 seconds to sign this petition. The number of signatures is rising fast. The best part is that Ms. Mailloux receives an email each time somebody signs, so she must be freaking out by now.

And the Premier defends it! What does that say about the PQ?

Let me tell you : I know women who have been raped. It’s hell. This PQ candidate is committing the most extreme insult and banalization of women who have been raped. I think she’ll be apologizing publicly before the end of the week.

MONTREAL — Pauline Marois has defended a Parti Quebecois candidate who compared baptism and circumcision to rape.

Louise Mailloux, who is running for the PQ in the Montreal riding of Gouin, has also written in the past that a tax on kosher and halal foods helps to fund religious wars.

Mailloux, who is a philosophy professor, made the rape comparison in an essay on religious neutrality. It appeared in the book, Laïcité ça s’impose!, that was published in 2011.

Mailloux made clear this week that she stands by the statement.

Get a load of this statement by Obama on Crimea’s independence referendum:

“The proposed referendum on the future of Crimea would violate the constitution and violate international law,” Obama said. “We are well beyond the days when borders can be redrawn over the heads of democratic leaders.”

(Source)

It strikes me that the same would be true of a Quebec referendum on sovereignty. Pauline had better take notice that Obama may not be as passive during a Quebec referendum as Clinton was in 1995.

Wow.

They’ve just ensured they will never be re-elected.

In 2007 Conservative party brass in Ottawa cut off Heather Stilwell’s run for the Conservative nomination in a B.C. riding. Stilwell had launched her campaign prior despite warnings that the Conservative Party would not allow her to run due to her history as a prominent advocate for the right-to-life and the traditional family. The party’s decision was reversed days after LifeSiteNews.com broke the story. Harper rejected the candidacy of outspoken social conservative John Pacheco, organizer of the 15,000-strong March for Marriage on Parliament Hill in 2005, during the Ottawa West nomination that same year in a move to protect the party’s preferred candidate John Baird, a staunch proponent of homosexual ‘marriage’. Pacheco, an unflinching pro-life advocate who runs the blog Socon or Bust, welcomed the news of Chong’s bill. “Since the political culture in Ottawa is firmly rooted in the culture of death, any structural change that lessens its grip and gives more influence and leverage to the pro-life movement and pro-life MPs is a good thing,” he told LifeSiteNews.com. “Time and time again, whether it’s abortion, gay ‘marriage’, or euthanasia, we see that the people are against these totalitarian and destructive ideologies, yet the political class and the power-brokers behind the scenes ram it through anyway.” Pacheco sees the bill as benefiting the political effort to protect unborn life. “It stands to reason that anything we can do to saturate government’s power is a good thing for the pro-life movement. This measure and any others like it should be strongly backed by people who value family and life,” he said. (Source)

Sooner or later, the totalitarian impulse is confronted.  It would be great if this Bill passed.  When I organized the March, I should have had the gonads to deny Harper a speaking platform.

Trudeau has insulted Canadians on many fronts with this event. As we remember the thousands of Canadians who gave their lives to fight dictators and preserve freedom, the aspiring PM prefers dictatorships.

He needs to apologize immediately.

During the event, which itself was widely criticized for sexist and patronizing undertones, an audience member asked Mr. Trudeau which nation’s “administration he most admired.”

The party leader responded: “There is a level of admiration I actually have for China because their basic dictatorship is allowing them to actually turn their economy around on a dime and say we need to go green, we need to start, you know, investing in solar. There is a flexibility that I know Stephen Harper must dream about: having a dictatorship where you can do whatever you wanted, that I find quite interesting.”

Here are some highlights related to family issues from today’s Speech from the Throne, which outlines the government’s priorities for the upcoming legislative sitting. Not all of these announcements are specific policy initiatives yet.  Some are more like themes.  The specifics will likely be announced in the upcoming Budget.

The bullets below are copied verbatim from the Speech, in no particular order.  Read the rest of this entry »

When I ran against Baird in 2006, I told everyone that he would do much more damage being a Conservative than if he were a member of the Liberal Party or NDP.  I see that I was right yet again.

Just when you think they couldn’t fall any lower or stink it up any higher, we learn that the Ontario Liberals apparently pressured the Speaker of the Provincial Assembly to change his mind about the release of internal documents showing just how badly they had screwed up.

The Speaker’s independence is sacrosanct. Sending an emissary from the Premier’s office to put him “on notice” is at best shockingly poor judgment and at worst an attempt to subvert democracy. (Source)

The only thing worse than somebody that lies to your face is somebody who also tries to bully others and orchestrate a cover-up so that you never learn the truth.

Enough with these people. We need an election now.

When the election comes, get your butts out there and vote. Apathy will land you another four years of abuse.

If you’re in Ottawa South and you care about what future your children will inherit, vote for PC candidate Matt Young. He’s not pro-life because he supports abortion in cases of rape and other hard cases. But that’s much better than the other candidates, who are all pro-abortion. Besides, Matt Young doesn’t seem to like the hyper-sexed curriculum that the Liberals want to ram into the schools, based on an interview with Brian Lilly on Sun News Network.

So vote Matt Young.

For the other ridings having by-elections, information is sparse. But we do know this:

  • The Liberals are the ones pushing the crazy sex curriculum. And they’re thoroughly corrupt.
  • The NDP supports the curriculum. Besides, all their candidates are required to be pro-abortion and pro-same-sex “marriage”.

So that leaves you with either the Conservatives or the Greens. Keep in mind that the Greens typically support abortion and other lefty causes, although I’m not sure that Ontario Conservatives are much better. But only a Conservative has a legit chance of getting elected in those ridings. So for lack of better information, I would pinch my nose and begrudgingly vote Conservative.

The priority is to make sure the Liberals and NDP don’t get nothin’.

TORONTO, July 23, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) – As evidence mounts regarding the influence former Ontario Deputy Minister of Education Dr. Benjamin Levin exerted in developing the province’s temporarily shelved “sexual diversity” sex-ed curriculum, it has been revealed that the alleged child pornographer also criticized criminal background checks for adults working with school children.  Read the rest of this entry »

As you’ve probably heard, Brent Rathgeber has resigned from the Conservative Party and will sit as an independent MP. He just couldn’t stomach Stephen Harper’s strong-arm tactics any more.

Good on him.

As Andrew Coyne points out in a very thoughtful article, this is part of the unrest that started several weeks ago when Mark Warawa had his democratic rights quashed when he tabled a motion to condemn sex-selective abortions. Let’s see if anybody else jumps ship.

No need to invoke mythical videos on this one. We have direct testimony based on an investigation by the Ontario privacy commissioner.

I hope heads roll on this. Do you know how much could have been accomplished with the squandered $585 million? It’s mind boggling.

“Mr. Speaker, I am proud to stand today to talk about an amazing event that will take place this week in the nation’s capital. It is the 2013 National March For Life,” MP Leon Benoit said during Statements by Members yesterday afternoon. (Source)

Get ready.  We’re coming!

No more smooth sailing for Stevie.

And remember, the freedom that is being granted to ALL MPs was started by a Pro-Life MP asking tough question about abortion.

The slavery that we’re under is about to end.

But make no mistake, if Mr. Scheer had allowed the status quo to stand, the last vestiges of independence on the backbenches in the House of Commons would have disappeared. The convention that the party whips dictate who says what during Question Period and members’ statements would have been confirmed — the status of backbenchers as disposable as that of Star Trek redshirt security officers on landing-party duty.  (Source)

Hahaha. That’s true!  The poor bozo security officers on Star Trek always got knocked off.

Good one for Andrew Scheer. Putting his Catholic Faith in action.  This is a great day for freedom indeed.

Let us rally to “FREE MARK WARAWA” on Monday, April 15, 2013, High Noon, the 1st day of the new Parliament sitting. It will be a greeting for the MP’s to remember.

Let us all rally around the “Freedom Flame” on the grounds of parliament hill in peaceful and respectful defiance of these dangerous suppressors of Free Speech and their leader, Harper. And let’s do it this Monday! The urgency is great, for our fundamental freedom is being eroded quickly and dramatically by the muzzling of our elected MP’s, and then the rest of us eventually in turn.

Funny how that works.

It’s interesting that Harper and his political enemies in the other Parties can come together to put down the Innocent.  Sometimes, nothing ever changes.

Now Herod was very glad when he saw Jesus; for he had wanted to see Him for a long time, because he had been hearing about Him and was hoping to see some sign performed by Him. And he questioned Him at some length; but He answered him nothing. And the chief priests and the scribes were standing there, accusing Him vehemently.  And Herod with his soldiers, after treating Him with contempt and mocking Him, dressed Him in a gorgeous robe and sent Him back to Pilate. Now Herod and Pilate became friends with one another that very day; for before they had been enemies with each other. – Luke 23:8-12

The Passion appears to play out in every age:  First Jesus, now the unborn.  Which actor are you in this drama?
