has a running feud on with the government for their policies that are ruining the "first nations" (I link to her blog because many of these problems were found on the midwestern reservations in the US where I worked at the IHS Hospitals).
Today she rewrites the ten commandments as she sees how the social gospel morphs into pure politics that persecutes the non conformer.
Let’s evaluate the NDP in light of the TEN COMMANDMENTS
I. Thou shalt have no other God but God. To an NDPer the NDP becomes their creed, their loyalty, their philosophy and life style. Their graven images are the Family of Crown Corporations ( government control of business), the civil servants who work to run our lives, their Sturdy Stone Building, Fines Building, SaskPower Taj Mahal are their graven images. It used to be described as Making the Revolution. Now it is more like Maintaining Power so we can be our own god ....
3. Thou shalt keep the Sabbath Holy. If God is not God then out of expedience we can have activities that squeeze God out of Sunday, the Sabbath for Christians.
4. Honour Your Father and Mother. This Commandment makes it clear that the first authority and government is the Family. When people attack the authority of parents they are attacking the first and most important governmental institution. Socialists such as the NDP always work to denegrate and replace the Family. They do not want parents to be in control of health care such as vetoing abortion and contraception for minors. They do not wants parents to have educational choice. In the North the NDP pushed out Catholic education and educational choice. They push sex education that attacks morality and the family. They push psycho games such as Magic Circle that violate the privacy of the home and teach children to despise their parents. They push government raising children at the earliest age.
5. Thou shalth not kill. The NDP have been and are in the fore front of pushing abortion which is killing unborn babies and euthanasia which is killing the sick, imperfect and elderly. They had a policy platform in 1981 that any hospital which refuses to kill babies will not get government funds. As soon as they were back in power in 1991 they began destroying Catholic hospitals including St. Paul’s maternity ward....
you may want to go to her blog to see what you may face in another ten years (or another two years if Obama stays in office and you live in a pc state such as California or Minnesota).
Ironically, although I saw the federal gov't and the state gov't in Minnesota pushing these things on our people, it was the tribes who opposed much of this.
The IHS won't pay for abortions because most of the staff is prolife and most of the tribes object to paying for abortions (The two abortions I saw were of really life threatening cases, which I knew the patients but was not involved, but learned about from their history).
A similar "problem" for the federal gov't occurred when they tried to make military hospitals do abortions.
However, Obama's health care law mandates abortion pills as "preventive care" and one wonders who will be willing to say no to this.
the Catholic bishops are up in arms, but the press is silent.
As for the elderly, they just refused to sign "Do not resusitate" orders. We tried to get them to do it but they wouldn't. Then we had a lady aspirate food, and the Emergency room doc saw that order and didn't send her off to get the emergency bronchoscopy that would have saved her life. When one of our docs heard, he ran to the ER but she was terminal and died. After that, we stopped pushing our patients.
