Ours is a dying nation [nation: from the latin natio: I am born] and Morgentaller and Robinson have played satanic midwives to our self-destruction almost from the start. On its national holiday a country that can't even reproduce itself honors someone who destroys the new generation in the womb. Happy "birthday," Canada!

The award to Morgentaller was predictable if nothing else. Just as predictably the media wades in with the customary paeans to perversity: cf the Globe and Mail, "A courageous honour for courage." The only thing left to round out the national pantheon is a tribute to the homosexual activist Svend Robinson, manning as he does the other great portal to our rush into extinction. But why get upset about it? Conservative outrage is a necessary tonic for liberal self-gratification. It's the sixties in a bottle and guaranteed to get them high every time. What surprise to learn that the United Church of Canada, aka Sod Central, was the instigator of the award?
