  1. *sigh* "If ya can't dazzle 'em with brilliance, baffle 'em with bullshit." I don't know who originated that quote, but the practice keeps popping up, especially when someone's sacred ox is about to be gored.

    No. The ruling on Prop 8 will NOT criminalize Christianity. What it will do is make civilly unacceptable the practise of public discrimination against anyone becasue of their sexual identity or preference. In other words, it will turn the tables on those who are standing atop their little soapboxes, screaming themselves hoarse about the horrors of the "gay agenda" -- something they have yet to prove exists. Because they can't. Because it doesn't.

    Catholic (and other) leaders will still be allowed to think that homosexuality is sinful and "harmful" (whatever they think that means). They simply will not be allowed to move against it en masse, either civilly or politically. They can wag their little fingers all they want, but they will not be allowed to enforce their disapproval on a world that does not agree with them.

    Kinda like Jews can't enforce their religious laws against the eating of pork.

Sisters of Life

Here is an excellent website for any and all interested in the pro-life cause. The Sisters of Life are a religious order than began in New York City under the authority of Cardinal Jon O'Connor (RIP) in the 1980's. Their traditional religious lifestyle and clear charism have led them to grow much faster than many other orders. As a result, these wonderful women are moving beyond the boundaries of NYC and have opened a convent in Toronto. Here is a link to a news account from LifesiteNews which explains in greater detail their history and mission in Toronto. The Sisters of Life count among their numbers a woman from our Parish here in Mattawa who is soon to take her final profession. This is one of the greatest blessings that we have received as a parish. Anytime a religious vocation comes forward from a parish community, many graces flow back to the local church. I can only pray that as the Sisters of Life establish their ministry in Canada that more and more women will join
