A good friend of this blog, Nick Donnelly, succinctly encapsulated one very sinister aspect of the moral crisis that has seized Canada. The Hegelian "god-State". Sadly most Canadians adhere to some form of fascist conception of the State, perhaps not in theory, but in practice, accepting the State to be supreme over the human person. From this flows that opposition to the State cannot be tolerated. It is Linda Gibbon's opposition, her public witness for the culture of Life (against the the State's culture of death, that permits the mass murder of unborn children), that causes the State to de facto move against her in the manner of the Gestapo or the KGB.
This is not rhetoric or dramatics- this is reality. Handcuffs are a reality, prison is a reality, persecution is a reality. The police insignia may be different, but the spirit is the same: the spirit of fascism.
Readers should know that Linda was arrested outside a Toronto abortion facility this past September 2nd for holding a sign that read:"Why mom, when I have so much love to give". Her trial has been set for January 13, 2016.
"...what is happening also at the level of politics and government... is the sinister result of a relativism which reigns unopposed...in this way democracy, contradicting its own principles, effectively moves towards a form of totalitarianism. The State is no longer the "common home" where all can live together on the basis of principles of fundamental equality, but is transformed into a tyrant State...when this happens, the process leading to the breakdown of a genuinely human co-existence and the disintegration of the State itself has already begun".
( Pope John Paul, Evangelium Vitae, 20
Please pray for Linda Gibbons, dwelling in prison for love of the unborn babies. For the love of Life and Truth.
