PC Leadership Race: Randy Hillier endorsed by Catholic Insight

According to the Free Dominion, the pro-life magazine called Catholic Insight has endorsed Randy Hillier. This is a break from other pro-life groups that have endorsed Frank Klees.

I have often thought that Randy Hillier is the rare candidate that both principled social conservatives and principled libertarians can support. He is the only candidate that is proposing policy that addresses the concerns of pro-lifers. His Freedom of Conscience Act would allow doctors to refuse to perform abortions on moral grounds.

Very funny! Glad to see the anti-catholic crew is alive and well! Burn any churches lately? I'm young, irish catholic, conservative, and proud! My only problem with the catholic community is that too many older catholics just let the church haters run all over them. My family knows all about hatemongers. My relatives caught crap in Ireland from catholic bashing protestants. The only difference is that in Canada the hatred comes from snobby atheists who think that they are smarter than everyone else. They can't believe in God because it would seriously damage their over inflated egos. They also seem shocked when they find someone can be both a devout catholic and have multiple degrees. I have some bad news for them! The atheists can trash us, wish us away, and even kill us like in communist Cuba and the former eastern bloc but we will continue to stand by our faith. The Nazis put priest in concentration camps(and killed others), the atheistic Communists have done the same, Islamic radicals have beheaded us, and even our fellow christians have persecuted us. The end result has always been a rebirth. The rise in religious faith in most of eastern europe(especially Poland). The post-war establishment of Christian Democratic parties as a counter to the left in much of western europe. They are signs that persecution strengthened the church.

Arnold, don't worry. No one who reads the comments here at the Western Standard takes Epsilon seriously.
