GADGET CUTS THE CURSING FROM YOUR TV

NEW ORLEANS, June 22 (LifeSiteNews.com) – In June last year a Pentecostal pastor invented a tool that can delete pre-programmed expletives from TV programs and movies while you are watching them, and ever since it has been selling like hot-cakes. Fed up with the increased bombardment of foul language from TV programs, Rev. Jonas Robertson, pastor of the Abundant Life Pentecostal Church in New Orleans, invented the TV gadget and first introduced it to the public at the annual convention of the 32 million member Assemblies of God denomination last year. The product, called Curse Free TV (CFTV),  claims to […]

BILL TO PROTECT CANADIAN SOVEREIGNTY DEFEATED

OTTAWA, June 21 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Bill C-214, a private members bill which, if passed, would have required the federal government to pass all international treaties through Parliament before ratifying them, has been defeated at second reading despite support from all opposition parties.  In an upsetting loss, the bill was defeated 110 to 151. Pro-life Liberal MPs surprisingly voted with the government even though their support for the bill could have made the difference between success and failure for this initiative which would have inhibited the very serious, on-going, international anti-family agenda via international treaties and agreements. See the way your […]

KELOWNA, BC, June 21 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Kelowna Mayor Walter Gray has again refused to proclaim gay and lesbian pride week, noting that he has stopped all proclamations after a March human rights tribunal decision found him guilty of “discrimination” for not proclaiming homosexual pride.

BISHOP SHERLOCK DEFENDS MARCH AGAIN , BUT APOLOGIZES

LONDON, ON, June 21 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Bishop John Michael Sherlock, of London, Ontario issued a statement Monday apologizing for his earlier disparaging remarks about pro-lifers, but he continues to defend Catholic participation in the World March for Women. The primary reason the bishop gives for supporting the march is “that poverty and violence, especially the poverty of women and children,  kills and disables more children than abortion does, and it is against poverty of women and violence that we march.” Unfortunately, the bishop is severely misinformed on his facts. Even pro-abortion groups admit to “between 36 and 53 million abortions” […]
