The cackle of the Left is almost deafening. They really don’t know what to do with themselves. First, they are defending free speech, then they are expressing their glee that conservatives are being hauled before the Kangaroo Court, and that Free Dominion might be forced to shut down in its current form. How they believe this is a victory for them requires, I am sure, a degree from women’s studies at Tyranny U.
It’s amazing how these people don’t read the writing on the wall. They are so in love with Islam that they don’t understand what attacking the Christian West is going to do to all of their pseudo “rights”. After all, everyone can clearly see the connection and the logical alliance between supporting a hijab day and pushing the homoerotic agenda forward. It’s just so damn obvious. Don’t you see it? There’s no contradiction there at all and we can all clearly see how freedom of speech, women’s “rights” and “gay rights” are all just going to fit right in with a civilization under Sharia law. It’s only us dumb conservatives who insist on pointing out that the socialist emperor has no clothes. As Mark Steyn remarked….
I’m a social conservative. When the mullahs take over, I’ll grow my beard a little fuller, get a couple of extra wives, and keep my head down. It’s the feminists and gays who’ll have a tougher time. If, say, theree of the five judges on the Massachusetts Supreme Court are Muslim, what are the chances of them approving “gay marriage”? (Mark Steyn, America Alone, p. xxvii )
Anyhow, this collective delusion seems to have creeped into their delight over Free Dominion, a discussion board where Canadians actually debate issues, being bounced into Kangaroo court. They haven’t figured out that once the bar is lowered to the extent that it will be if the CHRC accepts Ms. Gentes complaints against Bill Whatcott, let’s just say that things are going to degenerate very quickly.
TORONTO, May 25, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Catholic Civil Rights League today called on Aileen Carroll, Minister of International Cooperation, to review the funding relationship between CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency) and rabble.ca, an e-zine whose current edition features a strongly anti-Catholic cartoon caricature of Pope Benedict XVI. In the animated cartoon, the pope repeatedly marches to a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, then gives a Nazi salute with the caption “Heil Mary.” Source
As a Catholic I would consider this cartoon as an example of fostering hatred and contempt against the Vicar of Christ and Catholics in general. If the complaints registered against Bill Whatcott make it to first base, then this one will surely mean a home run. While Bill called out Muhammed as a false prophet (a theologically correct phrase), and his claims were backed up with historical fact, the same cannot be said for our government funded leftist site. Rabble’s defamation of Pope Benedict XVI was based on a lie that Benedict willingly served with the Naziis. This serves to incite contempt and hatred towards faithful Catholics, even though the Catholic faith was the predominant theological opponent to Naziism in its day.
TORONTO, Canada, May 28, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation independently approved a recently-aired anti-Catholic comedy that offended Catholics by depicting the Communion host as snack food, according to a spokesperson for Canadian Television Fund. CBC denied approving the controversial pilot show of The Altar Boy Gang that ran May 11, which mocked the Catholic sacraments of Holy Communion and Confession. A public outcry following the show’s airing led CBC Television’s executive vice-president Richard Stursberg to send a letter to the National Post defending the CBC, in response to an editorial in the paper condemning the anti-Catholic bias.
“It’s the broadcaster that determines what kind of program they want to support and air,” she said in a telephone interview from Toronto. Broadcasters abide by the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ Code of Ethics, which prohibits “abusive or unduly discriminatory material or comment”, she said.
Two Conservative Members of Parliament have said they want the CBC to answer to a House committee for The Altar Boy Gang. MPs Brad Trost and Andrew Scheer promised to send letters of complaint to CBC officials and to request support from MPs of all parties in bringing CBC officials before the Heritage Committee.
“To depict the communion host, something so sacred, in this fashion, is an extreme act of sacrilege,” wrote Scheer, a Catholic, in a news release May 16.
“The Holy Eucharist is sacred to millions of Catholics across Canada and around the world,” said Trost, pointing out that the CBC has a history of airing anti-Catholic material–in an episode of the program Our Daily Bread, comedian Mary Walsh fed a consecrated host to a dog.
It strains credibility that the CBC does not understand what the Eucharist means to Catholics. Lots of fallen away Catholics work for the CBC, after all. So feigning ignorance just doesn’t cut it. So, if there is no ignorance, the level of contempt and hatred for the Catholic faith is clearly demonstrated by Ms. Walsh’s action. Throwing the most sacred thing in the Catholic faith to a dog is definitely an actionable item. For the intellectually challenged in the leftoid community, just think what the reaction would be if a conservative had thrown a copy of the Koran to a dog. Ya think the Rabblers would be tolerant of that action and accept the excuse that we “just didn’t know these things”?
There are, of course, many more instances that could be presented, but these are two that stick in my mind. I am sure there are many more serious examples which I will be cataloguing in the future. You never know when they might come in handy.
