“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

A number of months ago I spoke at an information seminar 
Me speaking to ALIES
information session

for the Alberta Life Issues Educational Society (ALIES). I was thrilled to see Catholics, Orthodox and evangelical Christians coming together in common concern over Canada's direction toward euthanasia and assisted suicide. That Christian concern to resist Canada's culture of death must spill into the streets, make its collective formidable presence felt on election ballots, and openly demand protection for all vulnerable human life. Resolute and even militant Christian unity, is now necessary.

This is election time in Alberta. Albertans must question political candidates that seek their support whether they will work to stop taxpayer funded abortions? Will they work to protect healthcare professionals' conscience rights not to participate or refer for physician assisted suicide? If a political candidate's answer is no to either of these questions, the candidate is unworthy of your vote. If no candidate in your constituency will stand up for the protection of all vulnerable humanity, spoil your ballot by writing "no pro-Life candidate" on it before putting it into the box. If you are using electronic ballots, spoil your ballet then send a tweet to Party leaders informing them of your action.

The sanctity of all human life is more important than supporting candidates that will tolerate more killing.
