Thanks, I needed that!

By Leila Marie Lawler (articles ) | Jul 04, 2003

I'm really impressed with the Bishops of Ontario and tone of their clear, simple statement on marriage.

Sometimes, when things get complicated, common sense is the best defense! Invoking common sense gives us that charitable slap that brings us back to reality, to what we know is right.

Courts and legislatures can react to people clamoring for their rights, but only the Church can show us where we ought to be.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:

    The Ontario bishops, at least one of them, have yet to make any public comment on the excommunication of Jean "I am a Catholic and for abortion" Chretien, Prime Minister of Canada our proud and native land. I assume that the writ is in the mail.
