"His radical homosexual agenda is offensive",some say. "His words are only directed to... Read More
On December 20th, 2013 the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the prostitution laws. It gave the government one year to come up with a new law. Legalizing brothels and decriminalizing prostitution in Canada will inevitably lead to increased sex trafficking and child exploitation.In highly developed countries such as Sweden, Norway and Iceland there has been massive success in decriminalizing those being sold while criminalizing the purchase of sexual acts.

What is needed, rather, is to lose ourselves for the sake of... Read More

I confess that I came with some reservations, but I did want to meet the people who were behind the promotion.
