Monday has been a very unusual day for us - rather difficult to say the least.
US staff were off for the Memorial Day holiday, two key staff (Washington and Rome) are moving residences today and tomorrow, our assistant editor is on a week's holiday and others were not available for a variety of special reasons. For the most part, it has been John-Henry Westen and myself running LifeSiteNews today, just like the beginning years – but with vastly more to do now. Whew!
On top of that, our fundraising campaign launch email went weird on us and so, my apologies to our many subscribers, it had to be resent in another format.
Please keep us in mind, we really do need your support. $5400 has come in so far. A nice little start. Thanks! $95,000 more to go over the next few weeks. All we can do is ask. The rest is up to you.
We will be back to near normal in a few days.
As for Monday's stories, you must view the video of the surprisingly fair Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) interview with Ezra Levant about the anti-Christian bigotry of some Canadian politicians. This anti-religious behaviour by persons in leadership positions is a rapidly growing phenomenon in the West. Canadian Opus Dei vicar, Fr. Fred Dolan, and Ezra Levant provide excellent examples of how we must respond to this dangerous trend. Each response was very different, but both types are needed. Neither was intimidated and both held fast to their rights and principles.
