POLAND’S EX-COMMUNISTS FAIL TO ACHIEVE EXPECTED MAJORITY GOV’T

WARSAW, September 25, 2001 (LSN.ca) – Although the final count is expected tomorrow, it appears that Poland’s ex-communist Democratic Left Alliance (SLD) has failed to win a majority of seats in the parliament and must seek a coalition to form a government. Prior to the elections the SLD was expecting a landslide victory and had already announced a cabinet. However, just one week before the September 23 general election, Poland’s Catholic Bishops had a letter read in every parish urging Catholics – some 93% of Poles – not to support the country’s so-called “ex-communist” social democrats because of their support […]

NOTABLE QUOTES

LINDA BOWLES It is a joy to see so many Americans calling upon God again and to see politicians publicly soliciting His blessings. It has been a long time since that happened. How much grander is our vision when there is no wall of separation between God and country! I hope that in the months and years to come, we will not forget our moment of truth and return to the way we were. I pray we will not allow the lessons of this tragedy to be gradually undermined and chipped away by those among us who secretly consider our […]

CALGARY, September 25, 2001 (LSN.ca) – The Canada Family Action Coalition (CFAC) has launched a nation-wide campaign to pressure the federal government to raise the age of consent for sex from 14 to 18. “Adults can legally prey on and have sex with children in Canada,” says Brian Rushfeldt, CFAC Executive Director. “Since the age of consent was reduced to 14 in 1987, there have been increased incidents of vulnerable young boys and girls being exploited by adult sexual predators.” Internationally, Canada has established a reputation as a sex tourism “hot spot” and an attractive destination for pedophiles.
