Mar. 15, 2007: Bud Talkinghorn

The same-sex marriage bill--the Liberals said this couldn't happen, but it has.

Tucked away on page A-6, bottom one inch column of The Globe and Mail (March, 15) is this little Bill 37 amendment. In the N.B. legislature there was a proposed amendment to the new Marriage Act, which would exempt clergy and civil servants from performing a marriage that was against their beliefs. The Liberal majority defeated it. To quote the Attorney-General, one TJ Burk, he said the bill amendment was "flawed and would be a step backward for New Brunswick". Allowing people to have freedom of belief is "backward"?

Almost everything connected with the same-sex bill was tainted with fraud or coercion. First the committee to investigate public opinion on this was stacked with same-sex supporters. Many groups were given advance warning to mobilize their support. Then the committee disbanded before its term was up. Supposedly, because the courts had made a ruling on it. A small sidebar: Isn't it interesting how the superior courts' (or Supreme Court) manages to weigh in on the side of the Liberal's positions? Every time the opposition to same-sex marriages brought up freedom of religious conscience they were pooh-poohed. "Never can happen," the Liberals/Bloc/ NDP leaders assured them. "The Charter wouldn't allow that."

Well, I'm sure there were protections in the original Nazi Party's constitution for citizens' beliefs. But Hitler didn't want to appear, as TJ Burk would put it, "backward". Therefore, new interpretations of the old laws would now apply. I can only hope that the religious challenge this. But where can it get justice? The Supreme Court?

© Bud Talkinghorn--The clergy, in particular, were supposedly protected. What a travesty!

The appointed justices have done their liberal duty. To do what those who appointed them wished was, IMHO, a major reason why they rose from the bottom of the legal pool. All along the way, they make evident their leftist/liberal/Liberal bona fides until, in the fulness of time, they reach the pinnacle of the judicial system. The culmination is the SCOC, a politicized, appointed group who do what they were advanced to do. So what else is new in Canada? Freedom of religion, particularly Christianity, or freedom of conscience in the face of the leftist and Liberal juggernaut which held sway for years? No contest. FHTR

Conrad Black--An appreciation

Perhaps Conrad will turn out to be a big time embezzler, who demanded to live like Louis the Sun King. Certainly the liberal media misses no opportunity to point out his foibles and "predatory" nature in business. An example of that hatchet job they are presenting was in full evidence last night on CBC's "Life and Times" program. Peter C. Newman managed to inject his usual venom with comments like "A mafia don" as well as insinuating that Barbara Amiel, his wife, was a nympho. A few of Black's old acquaintances were trotted out as character references; however, the entire thrust was what a shady egotist Black was. The liberal left delights in his current situation and their media coverage shows it in spades. It vindicates Black's comment that, "In Canada they always want to cut down the tall poppies."

Another Conradian statement was that "Canada is the true home of political correctness". It wasn't just what he said, but how he went about creating a conservative antidote to that scourge. Black built up a newspaper empire that attacked those who had foisted this odious political correctness upon us. The creation of The National Post was his crowning glory. It tackled this suffocating victimology that The Toronto Star, the CBC/CTV, and The Globe and Mail stuff their content with. It was a big spear to skewer the sacred liberal cows of aboriginal policy, the radical feminist movement and, yikes, even The Supreme Court. The Liberal Party was a favourite target, especially as they wallowed in the sleaze of Adscam. By its role in elevating Stephen Harper and the Conservatives to power, the liberal media had found a worthy, if despised, opponent.

So even if the Blacks had a "let the shareholders eat cake" mentality, Conrad will be remembered by Canadian and British conservatives--large C and small--as a champion.
