Is All Love Equal

No Comments, Authors, Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.


judicial tyrannyToday, in a 5 to 4 split decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, the so-called “equal protection” amendment should be interpreted to mean that marriage cannot be restricted to only heterosexual couples since homosexual couples must also have equal rights to access marriage licenses. This  same amendment, which was enacted during the U.S. Civil War period some 150 years ago,  also was used by the court in 1973 to create via judicial reasoning a right to abortion. An explicit reading of the 14th amendment says absolutely nothing about either abortion or homosexual marriage.

Flashing Signs of Danger

Flashing Signs of Danger!

warning-challengesAnyone traveling on the roads needs to be constantly alert to signs of danger. For the last few months the morning commute to work in Victoria, B.C. has been an increasing hassle due to the on-going construction on one of the main traffic arteries leading into the downtown core. A bicyclist who usually took this route to commute to work downtown observed on one particular morning a few weeks ago that all traffic was being squeezed into just one lane by a small group of flaggers who had placed numerous warning signs, barriers, and orange plastic cones to block off the inside fast lane. But, while most people feel obliged to take notice of the warning signs and make the appropriate inconvenient travel correction,a commuting cyclist, a 30s-something woman, decided to ignore the warning signs…

Assisted Suicide: A Duty to Kill?

No Comments, Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.


assisted suicide-skullBack in early February 2015, the Canadian Supreme Court decriminalized physician-assisted suicide and euthanasia. The court insisted that to do otherwise would mean that citizens would have a duty to live. This current Supreme Court reversed its previous 1993 decision on this same subject, and instead launched a “right-to-die” revolution in Canada’s legal policy that involves: 1) abandoning the idea that every human life is always a good to be protected, 2) while substituting the concept suicide and euthanasia can be accepted as a social good and as a personal autonomy right, and 3) removing the law’s obligation to protect the weak and vulnerable.

April Fools – The Quartodeciman Controversy

No Comments, News, Videos, by CGP.


The Quartodeciman Controversy began with the apostle John’s fight against the Bishop of Rome as documented in scripture and history, but it did not stop there. Several centuries later the spiritual descendants of the apostles were once again contesting the authority of Rome. This is their story, the story of the common Celtic Church, and their scripturalist tradition inherited from the apostles.

The Greatest Issue of our Time? Inequality Slavery?

No Comments, Blog, Jeff Patton, by CGP.


85 richestThe Greatest Issue of Our Time? Inequality Slavery?

Is the world’s growing inequality  the new de facto slavery of our time?

Target, the American mega-chain retailer, failed in its expansion plans in Canada and recently announced that they are closing all of its 133 Canadian stores and laying off about 17,600 employees. But Target’s Canadian liquidation is not the news I want to write about, rather it’s something more shocking than a mere business flop.

It seems the fallen CEO of Target’s Canadian subsidiary will get a total severance and benefits exit package from the home office worth about the same as the total amount being offered to all 17,600 of the chain’s Canadians employees. Now that’s a golden parachute!
