this day in history

By Diogenes (articles ) | Jun 29, 2005

Kudos to Mark Mallet, Canadian Catholic musician (and sometime CWN advertiser) for making the connection:

Yesterday, the Canadian House of Commons approved a bill to give same-sex unions the full legal recognition of marriage.

The first reading for yesterday's Mass recounted the destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    Well, you can also come to Denver - we have Chaput here. But I have heard rumors that he may very soon leave his current position and be a Cardinal. He is a personal friend to Benedict XVI.

    Pseudodionysius: Where exactly would one receive instruction in the faith in the good ol' US of A? We can't all live in Lincoln, Nebraska!

    Canada has already come apart; it is a polygamous marriage confederation of provinces rather than a true country. I assume the next generation will have to emigrate to the US as a Catholic diaspora to receive instruction in their faith.

    A few minor modifications in the electorate, here and there, in the United States; a even more crackpot majority in the Supreme Court, a Democratic win in 2008 for the Presidency, and one of the Houses, a whoopee--it's Canada time here. Allstate Insurance just fired a manager who wrote in an online blog as a private citizen and simply questioned the validity of homosexual marriages. The case is now in litigation. Watch for Canada to start coming apart.
