By Hilary White OAKVILLE, December 20, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The latest election gaffe from the Liberals comes from the Oakville Liberal riding association where confirmed abortion-supporter, Bonnie Brown, is running for re-election. Elie Betito, a prominent volunteer for Brown’s campaign, responded to an email to the campaign from a voter who took the Liberals to task in strong terms for the Sponsorship scandal and Paul Martin’s proposal to ban handguns. The email writer, Stacey Cherwonak, who identified herself as a forensic firearms specialist with the RCMP, wrote, “I want to thank your party for making it clear who I should […]

Abortion-Shoah Comparison Infuriates Abortion Advocates at EU

  By Hilary White BRUSSELS, December 20, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – That it is verboten to compare abortion with the Nazi holocaust is a routine assertion among abortion advocates and is a particularly sensitive dogma among secularist partisans in the European Parliament. The latest example comes from Catholics for a Free Choice (CFFC), which has issued a media release excoriating the European Parliament for allowing the display of a poster that made the comparison. The CFFC release is in conjunction with a statement from a group of 500 self-proclaimed “women’s rights and human rights leaders,” saying they were “outraged” by the […]

Christmas Message from President Bush – Contrast to Non-‘Christmas’ Cards

By John-Henry Westen WASHINGTON, December 20, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – US President George W. Bush and his wife Laura have issued a Presidential Christmas message brimming with faith and all about the ‘reason for the season’. The message, reproduced in full below, is striking in that rather than stating ‘I believe . . .” or “Christians hold that . . .”, the Presidential message on the WhiteÂHouse web siteÂstates as a plain matter of fact that “More than 2,000 years ago, a virgin gave birth to a Son, and the God of heaven came to Earth.” There was considerableÂcontroversy in the […]

The Origin of Silent Night – A Christmas Carol is Born

Special to LifeSiteNews.com by Fr. Bernard Heffernan For 22 years I looked after the spiritual needs of senior citizen homes. Volunteers helped. Among them was Anna Cairnduf, a lady who hails from a mountain town in Austria. She’s the grand niece of Father Joseph Mohr, the writer of the Christmas carol “Silent Night” which for a long time was ignored. Why? Great music is expected from great cities and great Cathedrals but hardly from a poor, cold, drafty little mountain church, where a few days before Christmas in 1818, a hungry mouse chewed through the bellows of the old organ, […]

Schiavo Case Unpacked: Lies, Jesse Jackson, Aretha Franklin and “Terri-ism”

Special Commentary to LifeSiteNews.com by Anita Crane It’s easy to see why lies can be so tempting. For those intent on having things their own way regardless of the cost, lies are useful because they can injure and destroy people. They are especially useful when propagated by journalists; because under the guise of journalism, lies have an air of legitimacy, enabling them to influence untold millions. Michael Scherer broke Salon.com’s Dec. 7 story on Michael Schiavo’s project Terri PAC, the political action committee he formed “with the hope of raising money to defeat the politicians who tried to intervene in […]
