    Sunday | CNN

    As a society, we are often given to doing something after a tragedy to prove to ourselves that we are not ignoring an issue that triggers violence or wrong behavior in our society. When we assume, however, that we can somehow change human behavior by controlling or eliminating an image or object rather than addressing the very real social issues that trigger the violence we do ourselves a terrible disservice.

  10. Why deny witches Charter protection?Read the original story

    Saturday Jun 27 | Daily News

    Public Safety Minister Vic Toews likely dodged the wrath of taxpayers this week when he cancelled a tender to provide the services of a priest for witches inside Canada's prisons, but you can bet there's more trouble brewing down the road. Clearly, any decision to deny a Wiccan chaplain for inmates would not survive a court challenge based on Charter rights that guarantee freedom of religion or even expression.

    Once upon a time - along about 1889 - in far-off Canada, the Federal Government enlisted the support of the three major church organizations, Catholic, Anglican and plain vanilla Protestant , in the Christian endeavor of bringing 150,000 Indian kiddies out of the darkness of their pagan life and into the joys of Christendom. They were transported lovingly by the RCMP as truant officers, placed in 140 brand new schools run by kindly nuns, priests and tender loving pastors and members of the Ladies Aid, who taught them English, their catechism and even animal husbandry, which they demonstrated occasionally with electric cattle prods, especially when one of the kids wet the bed.
