The Decision of Someone Else’s Life

With the election of the new Canadian government, late last year, euthanasia and assisted suicide have become hotly debated topics. The current laws have been struck down and are being redrafted in order to include some form of medical aid in dying.   In a recent article, certain high-ranking officials from the college of medicine […]

Simone Biles y su fe católica

Durante este verano, mi hermanita de 9 años se convirtió en toda una experta en los Juegos Olímpicos. Cada día sabía qué eventos habría, quién competía por una medalla y las posiciones actuales en el medallero. Se le llenaban los ojos de emoción al ver a sus ídolas de nado sincronizado, clavados y gimnasia pero, […]

Querida FIFA, ¿Quién o qué decide tus agendas?

This family quickly became the subject and focus of global activism. Friends and family stood by the Bodnariu family and […]

A objeção da tolerância: “você não deve forçar sua visão sobre o outros”

Da próxima vez que alguém lhe falar que você não deve “impor suas crenças sobre as outras pessoas”, pergunte: “Mas por que não?”. Qualquer resposta que essa pessoa lhe der servirá de exemplo da imposição da crença dessa pessoa sobre você. A base do argumento da imposição da crença é sempre de que o certo […]

Empty Beds

Christians are often targeted because of their firm beliefs. Christianity is often not understood and it is because of this reason that it is often feared by others. It is often said that what you don’t understand, you fear and this is certainly this is true for Christianity. In Norway, the Bodnariu family has lost […]
