In Lame Attempt to Divert from Beer and Popcorn Scandal PM Attacks Harper over Gay ‘Marriage’

By Terry Vanderheyden OTTAWA, December 13, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – After facing a torrent of derision for the inane statements of Liberal spokesman Scott Reid suggesting Canadian parents would spend childcare money irresponsibly on popcorn and beer, Prime Minister Paul Martin has created a diversion by pulling out an old and tired campaign tactic – attacking Conservative leader Stephen Harper for a potential repeal of same-sex “marriage” legislation. Appearing in Ancaster, Ontario, Martin, calling same-sex “marriage” a “Charter” issue, challenged Harper to answer whether he would invoke the Charter of Rights and Freedoms’ notwithstanding clause to override the Constitution and repeal […]

You’ve already hit rock bottom.” Kraus’s proposed amendment reads, “Only marriage between a man and […]

Happy HOLYdays

Special to LifeSiteNews.com By Warren Throckmorton, PhD This Christmas season is just getting stranger as we go. All over the place people are trying to figure out what to say to each other (“Happy holiday(s),”“Merry Christmas,”“Get out of my way, I want that iPod”) and how to talk about the time of year we are in. I tried just saying Happy December to a few people and they just rolled their eyes. I agree; it didn’t do much for me either. Schools are hotbeds for these kinds of scuffles. One school near Seattle spent $494 to reprint a cafeteria menu […]
