Euthanasia -- Colorado’s Proposition 106 Would Dehumanize Medical Care

A Colorado brown bear sees in a wounded deer not a fellow creature to be helped but dinner. If Proposition 106 passes, legalizing euthanasia, something analogous to that brutish, subhuman relationship will obtain between doctors and their patients in Colorado, as those who were once considered fellow human beings to whom care was due are now taken to be problems to be technologically “solved” — or, worse, burdens to be lifted (from others, or from the state) by the self-administration of a lethal drug. And if that is what liberality, tolerance, and compassion have come to in the Centennial State, then Colorado is little more than nature red in tooth and claw, beneath a veneer of Rocky Mountain High civilization.

Canadian polyamorists face unique legal challenges, research reveals - Politics - CBC News

When they legalized gay marriages, we Christians said that next would come polygamy. Its proponents accused us of promulgating a false 'slippery slope' argument that would never come to pass. 


Calling it by a different name (polyamory instead of polygamy) is just a smoke screen to confuse the issue. To quote William Shakespeare, 'A rose by any other name....'

I hate it when we Christians are proven correct.

"But there's a rub. In addition to the amendment, the board adopted a complementary policy forbidding any member institution from using "exemptions for bona fide occupational requirements in an employments relationship to discriminate based on protected grounds, whether or not such exemptions would be otherwise permitted under applicable human rights law." In other words, the carefully measured balances that courts have sorted through when it comes to conflicting rights isn't good enough for Universities Canada. To remain within Universities Canada, some universities may be required to waive some of their legal rights as both employers and educators."
