In the third and final televised debate for the US Presidency (full transcript here), the subject of abortion was on the table. Republican candidate Donald Trump claimed to be pro-life, while Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton stuck by her long-standing support for one of the most evil organisations on the planet, industrial-scale abortion provider Planned Parenthood. Clinton went further by seeking to cover up the forced abortion regime of communist China. Continue reading
The tiny southern Belgian region of Wallonia has made world headlines for blocking a trade deal between the EU and Canada, concerning 545 million potential beneficiaries. On 9 November 2016 the regional Walloon Parliament in Namur will be debating a much more local issue, how to decendly dispose of the ashes of the 15,000 Walloons who are cremated each year. In the unparalleled complexity of the Belgian federal set-up, legislation on funerals, cremation and burials are deemed a “regional competence”. Continue reading
We normally don’t write about trade policy on these pages. But today we do have to make a comment: the EU’s spectacular failure to agree on the signature and provisional application of the “Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement” (CETA) with Canada marks a new and decisive further step in the Union’s demise. Whatever the merits of the argument may be – the astounding fact that a regional government representing less than one percent of the EU’s population is allowed to block a trade deal that has been negotiated for seven years and that is considered by experts to represent a very satisfying negotiation result shows that the EU is now structurally unable to deliver on one of its core competences, trade policy. As a result, it can hardly any more expect to be taken seriously either by citizens or the outside world. Continue reading
Admittedly, in the 100 years since the organization was founded by Margaret Sanger, Planned Parenthood may have killed somewhat less than 1 billion human beings. However, if you consider that they have been, and quite successfully so, pushing for the legalization of unborn-child-slaughtering all over the world, they are certainly responsible for far more than 1 billion premature deaths.
The World Health Organization estimates the annual number of abortions world wide at 50 million. Continue reading
A report just released by the international religious freedom organisation Open Doors reveals a shocking level of attacks on Christian refugees while being housed in German refugee centres. Over the period covered by the research, up to September 2016, a total of 743 cases are documented of Christian refugees who have reported religiously motivated attacks. Continue reading
There is something very strange going on with the same-sex “marriage” debate in Australia. The LGBT lobby claims that Australians overwhelmingly support their campaign to denature marriage by allowing same-sex couples to register their relationships as marriages. At the same time, the main campaigning organisation, the misleadingly-named “Marriage Equality” is vehemently opposed to the Australian Government’s announced intention to put the question to the Austrialian people by way of a consultative plebiscite. Continue reading
You don’t need to be Catholic, or adhere to another Christian denomination, or even to any religion at all, in order to understand that in today’s world the Catholic Church is the most formidable beacon of resistance against the all-pervasive Culture of Death. There may be other opponents – but the Catholic Church is the one that unites a great number of adherents, the capability of acting globally and reaching out to people of all social backgrounds, and a coherent set of arguments that, being grounded on sound philosophical thinking, cannot be easily dismissed as some kind of outdated “belief” of “superstition”.
If only the Catholic Church could be overcome, there would be nothing to prevent the destruction of society and the world-wide triumph of child-slaughtering, the physical liquidation of weak and the elderly, gender-ideology, sodomy, and the trafficking of human beings by so-called “reproductive doctors”.
The promoters and profiteers of the Culture of Death know this too – perhaps better than most Catholics. That is why they viscerally hate the Catholic Church and seek to fight it both from the outside and from within. Continue reading
