By the time my four-year-old son is swathed in the soft flesh of old age, he will likely find it unremarkable that he and almost everyone he knows will be permanently implanted with a microchip. Automatically tracking his location in real time, it will connect him with databases monitoring and recording his smallest behavioural traits.
Sex is not a taboo subject at Yale, home to Sex Week, a biennial celebration that's one of the most provocative campus events in the nation. But a couple's frolic in a shower at one of Yale's undergraduate residential colleges prompted a professor to issue an e-mail of protest, which in turn has sparked debate on the Internet.
The sectarian conflict inside Iraq was ignited with demonic precision by the al-Qaida forces. Their publicly announced purpose was to derail the unfolding democratic process set in motion by elections within a constitutional framework, and wreck the hopes of the Iraqi people for freedom and decent living. But the politics of the greater Middle East are a labyrinth unfathomable to the average Westerner.
The Family Coalition Party of Ontario is pleased to launch a new blogs aggregator for social conservatives called Soconblogs.com at http://www.soconblogs.com/
. All listed blogs support equal rights for unborn children and the traditional definition of marriage ... This is the first blogs aggregator in Canada organized around a provincial party.
A radical group of anti-pregnancy extemists launched their political campaign to eliminate pregnancy with a new website this week. Birth Pangs will be an organizing centre of support in their call for legislation to end pregnancies in Canada. April Reign, the group’s spokesperson said, “The facts show that carrying a pregnancy to term is more dangerous than other medical procedures. And then there are the post-partum issues: depression, sleepless nights, teenagers.” (Note: this is satire.)
Babies could be vaccinated with brain-altering chemicals to stop them getting hooked on drugs and cigarettes in later life. Newborns would have jabs which could prevent addiction to cocaine, heroin or tobacco, under secret Downing Street plans. Details of the extraordinary proposal to stop the annual £20 billion cost of drug misuse are in a leaked No 10 policy document.
A trail of campaign contributions has been documented by the pro-life group Operation Rescue
that appears to connect the Wichita late-term abortionist who was accused of criminal charges, the district attorney who sought to have those charges dropped, and the judge who made that decision. Additional documentation appears to show the abortion doctor's campaigning may even have helped the newly elected state Attorney General Paul Morrison.
Wood said all of the infected men are gay and have had multiple partners, most anonymous. They also used methamphetamine, which tends to increase sexual activity. Public-health officials have found some of the patients' partners, and so far none has the resistant strain. But many others have not been found because the men had anonymous sexual encounters, Wood said.
A ruling by Switzerland's highest court released Friday has opened up the possibility that people with serious mental illnesses could be helped by doctors to take their own lives. Switzerland already allows physician-assisted suicide for terminally ill patients under certain circumstances. The Federal Tribunal's decision puts mental illnesses on the same level as physical ones.
Gov. Rick Perry ordered Friday that schoolgirls in Texas must be vaccinated against the sexually transmitted virus that causes cervical cancer making Texas the first state to require the shots. The girls will have to get Merck & Co.'s new vaccine against strains of the human papillomavirus
, or HPV, that are responsible for most cases of cervical cancer.
Sometimes I wonder what kind of world this would be if Christian weren't in it, if he had not survived his surgery or if we had lost him in those dangerous first two years. Or worse, if this child would have been killed because he was prenatally "diagnosed" with Down syndrome. For our family, of course, the world would be a different place, an infinitely lesser place.
Revised report into allegations of organ harvesting of Falun Gong practitioners in China. See PDF at:http://investigation.go.saveinter.net/report200701/report20070131.pdf
Canada has expressed alarm at the "pattern of discrimination" against homosexuals at the United Nations after the UN committee that vets the credentials of activist groups blocked Quebec's leading gay and lesbian coalition from becoming an accredited observer.
What bothers me is that it seems the only documentaries getting airtime are ones that advance left-wing agendas. Going through a list of the most popular documentaries available, I can only find titles that focus on issues fashionable among the urban left. Fahrenheit 9/11. An Inconvenient Truth. Fast Food Nation.
CHINA'S military is harvesting organs from unwilling live prison inmates, mostly Falungong practitioners, for transplants on a large scale - including to foreign recipients- according to a study. The report's authors - Canada's former secretary of state for the Asia Pacific region David Kilgour and human rights lawyer David Matas - implicated dozens of hospitals and jails throughout China in July, after a two-month investigation.
With 4D ultrasounds and a litany of women telling their stories of pain and regret following an abortion, the American public is less supportive of abortion now than at any time since Roe. Other facts cannot be ignored. The recent “Right to Life” march in D.C. had up to 200,000 people ignoring snow, ice and below-freezing temperatures to let legislators know how they feel about this heinous procedure.
Italy's lower house of parliament last night voted in favor of a government-proposed motion to pass a law recognizing civil unions, including those of same-sex couples. The nine-party ruling coalition won the vote in the Chamber of Deputies in favor of civil-union legislation by 301 votes to 266.
What is clear is that Wal-Mart continues to dabble in supporting a lifestyle that is contrary to what many of its customers believe is natural and safe. By offering book selections that cater to the gay and lesbian crowd, America’s top discount retailer is demonstrating a desire to satisfy a vocal minority at the expense of losing the support of a large demographic that helped make Wal-Mart the successful business it has been for years.
There was goodness in the Beatles. Often, they sought to spread goodwill. But in the end there was a strong shadowing of drugs and the occult - and this would take a dramatic turn when Lennon met future wife and occultist, Yoko Ono (who was similarly misled and whose current album is called "I Am a Witch").
Russian prosecutors are investigating allegations that hospital staff in Yekaterinburg gagged babies because they did not want to hear them crying.
A Saskatchewan marriage commissioner told a human rights tribunal yesterday that he does not oppose a same sex couple's right to marriage, but to perform the ceremony himself would contradict his own beliefs. "I don't have a problem with them getting married, but I can't perform the service," said Orville Nichols during testimony before the Saskatchewan Human Rights Tribunal.
The former president is a former prime minister, and Camp David was Harrington Lake. The payments amounting to $300,000 are true. Pasta, envelopes stuffed with cash, file closed, "never had any dealings with him." That is true too and it happened in Canada. Why the payments were made remains a question without a satisfactory answer.
I speak here of a book called The Gospel According to the Beatles - which carefully sets forth what many of us ... suspected: at the base of the music was often an occult or at least an agnostic force that rose from music - some of it, at least - like a genie from a bottle, the cork for which was lost long ago, as the genie, in other guises, still roams.
The Vatican newspaper denounced an Italian journalist who posed as a penitent and confessed fake sins in order to write an expose on the sacrament of reconciliation. "Fake confessions in search of a shameful scoop," the newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, headlined a commentary condemning the cover story of L'Espresso magazine, one of the country's leading weeklies.
Sienna Miller and Hayden Christensen treat us to some utterly convincing lovemaking in their new movie, "Factory Girl." And it's no wonder: We hear the costars actually coupled on camera. "It's not simulated," an insider tells us. "They're really doing it."
If Pope Benedict hopes his first book will sell like Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code, he has the right U.S. publisher. Doubleday, which sold Mr. Brown's best-seller - branded by the Vatican as blasphemous - is also handling the U.S. market for the Pope's book about the life of Christ.
Dozens of strangers have stepped forward to offer support to a Calgary family left behind when a father died less than two weeks after welcoming his twins to the world.
Internationally, there is unease about Beijing’s support for dictatorial regimes such as Zim-babwe and the DRC, and of China’s willingness to overlook human rights abuses. The most pressing example is Sudan, which will play host to Mr Hu on Friday.
Under the auspices of its Institute for the Study of Canada, McGill University has introduced an inter-disciplinary seminar, The Conservative Movement in Canada (CMIC). The title is prosaic; the course content and the students it has attracted are anything but.
The most stunning statistic, however, is that the total number of deaths caused by conventional medicine is an astounding 783,936 per year. It is now evident that the American medical system is the leading cause of death and injury in the US. (By contrast, the number of deaths attributable to heart disease in 2001 was 699,697, while the number of deaths attributable to cancer was 553,251.)
At every turn we hear of more wars. There are those who say Bush is preparing for an October strike against Iran. If that is the case, the drop in oil and gold was an excuse to skim off the top of the world's assets (yours and mine). It appears that we are in a time of perpetual war for war is a transfer of wealth and an opportunity to finance both sides. There is nothing in this world that is not affected by the supreme power of a few major families worldwide. Furthermore, most of the major political players today are members of one of Rhode's secret societies: the Council on Foreign Relations, the Royal Institute for International Affairs, and the Pilgrims Society.
Moscow Mayor Yury Luzhkov said Monday he would never allow a gay parade to take place in Moscow despite pressure from the West, Russia’s RIA-Novosti news agency reports. “Last year, Moscow came under unprecedented pressure to sanction the gay parade, which can be described in no other way than as Satanic,” Luzhkov said at the 15th Christmas educational readings in the Kremlin Palace. “We did not let the parade take place then, and we are not going to allow it in the future,” said Luzhkov who has been in office since 1992.
Television = Hypnosis
Hillary Rodham Clinton left caucus-goers here yesterday believing that Bubba had given her a baptism by fire in how to deal with "evil and bad men." Clinton's quip, made during a morning rally with about 500 Iowans, drew 31 seconds of straight laughter and applause that left little doubt among attendees that she'd made a joke at hubby Bill Clinton's expense.
THE Catholic Church is to go to war over new legislation on rights for homosexuals, vowing to create "gay rights martyrs" if the laws are passed. In a change of tactics, Church officials now say they will not close down adoption agencies as a result of new laws forcing them to deal with applications from gay couples.
Nearly four years of fighting in Darfur between rebels and pro-government militias has led to the deaths of more than 200,000 people, and forced more than two million people to flee their homes.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) will decide on Monday whether there is enough evidence to try a Congolese militiaman for using children as soldiers in what would be the new court's first trial. A decision to confirm charges against Thomas Lubanga and launch a trial would be a major landmark for the ICC that was set up as the first permanent global war crimes court in 2002 and is now backed by 104 countries.
The next milestone in the relentless pursuit of smaller, higher performance microchips has been unveiled. Chip-maker Intel has announced that it will start manufacturing processors using transistors just 45 nanometres (billionths of a metre) wide.
I may be asking those of you who believe in freedom of speech and conscience to give me some financial support before long because what I am about to say is apparently illegal and not to be tolerated in Canada. I believe that homosexuality is not normal and not natural.
A boy of 12 is believed to have become the world's youngest sex change patient after convincing doctors that he wanted to live the rest of his life as a female. The boy - originally called Tim, but now known as Kim - has started to receive hormone treatment, in preparation for the operation that will eventually complete the sex change.
Between 1882 and 1968, 3,446 blacks were lynched in the U.S. That number is surpassed in less than 3 days by abortion. 1,452 black children are killed each day by the heinous act of abortion. 3 out of 5 pregnant black women will abort their child. Since 1973 there has been over 13 million black children killed and their precious mothers victimized by the U.S. abortion industry. With 1/3 of all abortions performed on black women, the abortion industry has received over 4,000,000,000 (yes, billion) dollars from the black community.
Pope Benedict on Saturday reiterated his defence of the traditional family, saying real marriage can only be between a man and a woman ... The Pope warned against what he said was a "cultural context marked by relativism" and against any views of marriage as merely a legal union "that human will could manipulate as it pleases, even depriving it of its heterosexual nature."
