  • CJNEWS THE TORAH AND TRANSGENDERISM Friday January 19th, 2018
    In our liturgy, the Torah is referred to as the “tree of life.” But although it’s rich in general guiding principles, the Torah is paradoxically terse or mute on several of our era’s hottest issues: abortion, gay marriage and transgenderism. These issues share two common denominators: all reverse or thwart natural procreation, and all have become litmus tests for left-wing ideologues. As a resu...
  • National Post Canadians don’t need a ‘National Day’ scolding us for being Islamophobic Wednesday January 17th, 2018
    The federal government has been asked by the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) to declare Jan. 29, the first anniversary of a murderous attack on a Quebec mosque that left six dead and several others injured, a “National Day of Remembrance and Action on Islamophobia.” The word Islamophobia is something of a trigger to some of us, as NCCM knows well. The group was in...
  • National Post Fighting off the chill (no pun intended) against skeptical climate science Tuesday January 16th, 2018
    Yes, the Earth is warming. How much and how fast is so far all hypothesis. It is therefore imperative that scientists be free to debate each other’s theories Baby, it was cold outside.

  • National Post Confessions of an underperforming grandmother … 'Regrets, I’ve had a few' Saturday January 6th, 2018

So regrets, yes, I’ve had a few — and not too few to mention, either. I should, for example, have lived alone, even for a few months, in my own pad some...

  • National Post A sadly necessary handbook for men falsely accused of sexual assault Thursday December 21st, 2017
    It is a sad commentary on our culture that few people care what happens to men falsely charged with sex crimes   Liam Allan, a 22-year old London, England-area criminology student, spent two years “in a terrible form of limbo” when he was charged with 12 counts of rape, based on allegations by a woman (unnamed) with whom he had had a consensual sexual relationship. ...
  • National Post Parents face scorn for worrying about letting their children change genders Thursday December 21st, 2017

  • CJNEWS INTELLECTUALS AGAINST ISRAEL VS. EZRA LEVANT Friday December 15th, 2017
    In The CJN’s Nov. 30 edition, prominent attention was given to the question of whether Rebel Media founder Ezra Levant is good or bad for the Jews. JSpace president Karen Mock opined that Levant’s “diatribes” and “intimidation” tactics “are an embarrassment to most decent people in our community.” I offered a different view in that feature article, and would like to elaborate on the reasoning b...
