The CCRL Deplores MP’s Anti-Catholic Comment

The Catholic Civil Rights League (CCRL) is disappointed to learn of a cheap anti-Catholic comment made recently by Liberal Party MP Adam Vaughan (Spadina – Fort York) via Twitter. The implications of the tweet, subsequently deleted, that the Church is engaged in an ongoing cover-up of sex offenders, and that the Church evades the terrible abuse of these scandals, remain troubling cheap shots, and are unacceptable.

The current bill moves us from what the CCRL deemed to be a national climate of “suicide relativism”, which is a half-hearted opposition to suicide in general, but sanctioned allowance when requested through the medical system.  Canada has now moved to a regime of full “suicide facilitation”, with further expansion expected.

The League Mourns the Death of Co-founder and Former Exner Award Recipient Fr. Alphonse de Valk

Fr. de Valk was a passionate defender of life, and of free speech, and stood for a robust understanding of freedom of conscience and religion. Fr. de Valk was born on Easter Sunday, 1932.  He died during the Easter Octave, and just prior to Divine Mercy Sunday.  His witness to the Gospel of Life was always centred on his relationship with Jesus Christ, in his case, through the priesthood.  May he be richly rewarded with the promises of the same Christ, our Lord.
