“Our once great western Christian civilization is dying. If this matters to followers of Jesus Christ, then we must set aside our denominational differences and work together to strengthen the things that remain and reclaim what has been lost. Evangelicals and Catholics must stand together to re-establish that former Christian culture and moral consensus. We have the numbers and the organization but the question is this: Do we have the will to win this present spiritual battle for Jesus Christ against secularism? Will we prayerfully and cooperatively work toward a new Christian spiritual revival ― or will we choose to hunker down in our churches and denominationalisms and watch everything sink into the spiritual and moral abyss of a New Dark Age?” - Mark Davis Pickup

SUICIDE PREVENTION OR ASSISTED SUICIDE

In October of 2012, Canada's Parliament gave UNANIMOUS support to a national suicide prevention strategy. The next month BC supreme court "Justice" Lynn Smith ruled in favour of  assisted suicide for an incurably ill woman. Now Quebec is about to legalize euthanasia and assisted suicide. They euphemistically call it "medical aid in dying." 

So which one is it? Suicide prevention or assisted suicide? Euthanasia proponents will respond "Both"! Healthy people get suicide prevention while sick and disabled people get assisted suicide.

That's the bad news. The good news is that assisted suicide clinics in Quebec will be fully wheelchair accessible.

Selective diversity, selective tolerance.
