“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

The Order of Canada lost its honour!
With a look of obvious adoration, Canada’s Governor General, Michaëlle Jean gave Canada’s highest civilian award, the Order of Canada, to the most infamous abortionist in the land, “Dr.” Henry Morgentaler. A statement released by Rideau Hall (the Governor General’s office) stated, “A Holocaust survivor, he [Henry Morgentaler] has not hesitated to put himself at risk in his determined drive to increase health care options for women.”
The Holocaust survivor from Europe created a new holocaust in Canada. Morgentaler has admitted to personally presiding over a 100,000 abortions. His abortion mills dotted across Canada have helped to make him a millionaire.
This dark and sinister irony went unspoken but was glaringly apparent to all but the most ardent abortion ideologues. Canada’s liberal elite at Rideau Hall and the mainstream media – like the Globe and Mail, CTV and CBC television networks – cheered that their champion of abortion 'rights' received such a high honor. Awarding Morgentaler the Order of Canada did not raise him up; it brought the prestige of the Order down.
Abortion is not a right – it is a wrong. Victory for one person’s rights gained at the expense of another person's right to exist is no victory at all. Nobody who truly believes in the ideal of universal human rights could deny any life the right to be born, breath, walk on the earth, and find their place in the world.
No, abortion on demand is not a victory for women’s rights, it is a defeat for universal human rights. Universal human rights must be universally applied to all humanity – otherwise they are not “universal” human rights. Basic biology tells us that life begins at conception. This is not a metaphysical contention; it is a plain and simple biological truth. Human rights begin when human life begins. Anything less is prejudice and sophistry. Abortion denies protection and care of the youngest, smallest and most defenseless members of the human family.
Yet that is what Canada has celebrated by giving Henry Morgentaler the Order of Canada.
You can decorate an abortionist with all prestigious medals ever made … he is still an abortionist. A murderer by any other name is still a murderer.
Canada has lost the honour in its highest honour. Its luster is gone. By giving the Order of Canada to the most contentious and infamous abortionist in the land, we have unwittingly proclaimed that we no longer embrace the great and noble ideal of universal human rights – of which the right to life is the first and highest.
A mass murderer of prenatal life has been honoured for doing just that. The insignia at the center of the medal should be changed to a swastika.
