A most dishonourable honour

Henry Morgentaler, Canada's foremost abortionist has now received the Order of Canada from Her Excellency, the Governor General of Canada.

I am filled with disgust at those involved in recommending this noxious award and I applaud those who returned their snowflake and the 100 parliamentarians who publicly expressed their profound disagreement over the shameful decision.

Approximately 100,00 babies are killed in the womb each year in Canada thanks, in large measure, to Morgentaler and his ilk.


Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.

Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

William Butler Yeats (1865-1939)

I am with you. I pray daily for the children gone.

Also, it has been years since last I visited Yeat's "The Second Coming".

Peace be with you in these times of travail

Its time we start organizing rosary rallies and days of fasting in our catholic and christian churches to atone and make reparation for the sins of our nation

Fasting and rosaries are exactly what it will take.
