Harper's Day of Infamy

December 7, 1941 is remembered as a Day of Infamy when Japan launched a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor, attempting to put the US Pacific Fleet out of commission.

December 7, 2006 may also be remembered as a Day of Infamy when Stephen Harper betrayed his socially conservative supporters by allowing traditional marriage to be subjected to humiliating abuse as MPs voted on the government's limp-wristed motion that would have restored the traditional definition of marriage "...without affecting civil unions and while respecting existing same-sex marriages."

After one day of debate, the motion was defeated. There was no free vote, no Royal Commission on Marriage, no attempt to engage the Canadian public. The original same-sex marriage bill, which passed in 2005, still poses significant threats for our youth and undermines freedom of religion, yet Mr. Harper considers the case closed.

Those who understand God's great love for mankind, His plan to redeem a fallen world and the significance He places on marriage know that the case is not closed. Like abortion, that ruthless killer of innocent human life, same-sex marriage is not a policy that social conservatives can accept. It must be opposed with vigour while we still have a semblance of freedom.

The Christian Heritage Party (one local site is: ) remains Canada’s ONLY national party that is unequivocally PROLIFE, PRO FAMILY and committed to Christian principles of morality, justice and virtue.
