EDMONTON, July 18 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Health Canada is warning of a syphilis outbreak mostly around homosexual men.  Seventeen cases of the previously rare sexually transmitted disease, syphilis, have sprung up since March in Edmonton.  The outbreak, with cases mostly occurring in gay or bisexual men, is the first such outbreak in Edmonton since the mid-1980s.  The Edmonton incident is not an isolated incident, however, with syphilis cases on the rise among ‘gay’ men in a number of North American and British cities which had no such problem a decade ago.

More On Elitist, One-Worlder Maurice Strong From Lorne Gunter

Edmonton, July 18, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Western Canadian journalist Lorne Gunter has written another revealing article on the dangers to Canada of upcoming Liberal Party leader Paul Martin’s likely appointment of Maurice Strong as a senior advisor.  Gunter relates that “Everything that is wrong can, in Strong’s mind, be traced to three sources—industrialization, wealth and free markets. I’d add a fourth—Christianity—except Strong never quite comes out and blames it for the world’s ills. He merely hints at it with statements such as “We are all gods now, gods in charge of our own destiny,”  Strong, Gunter says, sees himself as […]

Kenya Faces Looming Abortion Battle

MOMBASA, July 18, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Kenya’s Catholics are girding themselves as feminist MPs promote the legalization of abortion and the glorification of homosexuality. Several government ministers are calling for legalization. Others say what is needed is tougher laws to support pregnant women and to force adulterous men to support the children.  Mombasa archbishop John Njenga called abortion “outright killing” and said the proposals are a threat to the moral fabric of society. “Nobody should interfere with the unborn child; it has the right to be in the womb until it’s time to be born, and anybody flushing it out […]

Canadian MPs who Voted in 1999 To Retain Marriage Definition To Be Challenged to Act Accordingly in 2003

OTTAWA, July 18, 2003 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Some Canadian pro-family activists have suggested another political strategy in the battle to retain the traditional marriage definition in Canadian law. On June 9, 1999, Parliament voted 216-55 to affirm “that marriage is and should remain the union of one man and one woman to the exclusion of all others”.  This vote was taken with the knowledge that court decisions were headed in the direction of possibly changing the definition of marriage and that the vote would be Parliament’s pre-emptive strike against any such abuse of legislative decision-making by the courts on this issue.  […]
