I went to Parliament Hill today then I hit the beach with my kids. Had a wonderful day with my daughters. Will be writing a bit about it later on.
In the meantime, I see that the Butcher got his way and soiled the Order of Canada for everyone who has held it in the past and will hold it in the future. Membership is agreement by association, as we all know.
I have written to one of the past recipients of the Order of Canada to ask him to return his medal. I hope he accepts the invitation. All it takes is one or two to get some momentum and before you know it, the Order becomes just another Abortion booby prize for Canada’s leftists.
I am, however, shocked at the tactical blunder the pro-aborts have made. There’s nothing to gain by Morgentaler’s fraudulent award, but there is sure a lot to lose. Maybe nothing will come of it. Maybe something good will. We shall see. Far from finishing the job, the pro-aborts have opened up the abortion lockbox that has been shut for over 20 years, and heaven might just break loose on their little hell.
Look out. This may be the first of many salvos to come:
TORONTO, July 1, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) – The Archbishop of Toronto has today called on all Catholics in Canada’s largest city to demand that the award of the Order of Canada to arch-abortionist Henry Morgentaler be revoked.
The full statement of Archbishop Collins follows:
Canada’s highest honour has been debased. Henry Morgentaler has been awarded the Order of Canada. We are all diminished.
A community’s worth is measured by the way it treats the most vulnerable, and no one is more vulnerable than in the first nine months of life’s journey. No person may presume to judge the soul of Henry Morgentaler, but it cannot be denied that the effect of his life’s work has been a deadly assault upon the most helpless amongst us.
Canada glories in the names of Banting and Best, and the other medical heroes who selflessly brought healing where there was disease and suffering. Now it honours with the Order of Canada a medical man who has brought not healing, but the destruction of the defenseless and immeasurable grief. This award must not stand.
I earnestly appeal to all who are tempted to resort to an abortionist, or are pressured to do so by those around them. I urge you to contact organizations such as Birthright, and others who will support you and love you and your precious child. Contact your parish. We are here for you. I pledge to you the support of the Catholic Church. Look to our archdiocesan website at http://www.archtoronto.org for information concerning places where you may find loving help.
For those who have had an abortion, and bear within your heart the fearful grief, I urge you to contact us, to find love and support in your anguish, and in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, to find the gift of inner peace.
I ask the faithful of the Archdiocese of Toronto, and all people of good will, to protest this act of dishonour. Write, phone, or e-mail the Governor General, the Prime Minister, and your Member of Parliament. Ask that this action be revoked.
This coming Sunday will be a day of special prayer in the Archdiocese of Toronto, for an end to the evil of abortion. I have asked that the following prayer be inserted in the Prayer of the Faithful in all the churches of the archdiocese:
“That the scourge of abortion be lifted from our land, that those who promote it may be brought to a change of heart, that all who are tempted to abortion may be lovingly helped to protect the precious gift of life, and that all who have experienced an abortion may be comforted with the healing gift of love.”
May 14, 2009 is JUDGEMENT DAY. Watch for it.
A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth. Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads. His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne. The woman fled into the desert to a place prepared for her by God, where she might be taken care of for 1,260 days.
And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon was hurled down—that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him. – Revelation 12:1-9
