Abortion is science's grim story
Technology is showing the foetus as a human being. Time to encourage adoption and stop government funding of abortion.

Why Judy Sgro is just plain wrong
Canadian Immigration Minister, Judy Sgro, says there is no need for churches to provide sanctuary to people under threat of deportation. Is this because the government already has God-like ability to decide with perfect mercy all legitimate refugee claimants? Shouldn't churches and other citizens have a say in who is a legitimate refugee? It's a life and death matter.
Sanctuary under fire
"Only once have the civil authorities forced their way into a church to seize a protected person -- in March of this year, when Quebec City police pushed past the minister of St-Pierre United Church to arrest Algerian refugee claimant Mohamed Cherfi."
The government wants this practice of sanctuary to stop. Actually, it's not hard to see why governments are pressing this issue. Every modern government wants total control. From their point of view, they're creating a brave new world, and ancient traditions can go to hell.
However, many of us recognize higher moral laws, and we respect other allegiances that transcend human government, such as family and tradition. Even the Canadian Constitution of 1982 says "Whereas Canada is founded upon principles that recognize the supremacy of God and the rule of law..." So it's on paper that the Canadian government acknowledges the supremacy of higher principles - above themselves. Maybe they should delete this line in the Constitution Act before they proceed with their police state.
If I was in the government, I might notice right there in the first section a bunch of other strange items called "Fundamental Freedoms". And I might notice how it goes on and on about "mobility rights" and all sorts of amazing "legal rights"! Huh? We now know all this stuff is so out of date because of 9/11. Canadians don't need such "freedoms" and "rights" any longer because we have such a government of perfect knowledge and goodness. And tradition - church property - private property - no such thing - it's all to be violated, because the government knows best. And they must have total control, otherwise how can there be any goodness in this world!? We can't let people even think about making such decisions for themselves. There is nothing worse than disobedience. Obedience is what life in a free society is all about.
