There is no reality! There are only perceptions!
— Phil McGraw, The Dr. Phil Show, 2003 11 20
Although I have no idea whether Phil McGraw is a religious man in the Christian or any other sense, the world view he promotes fits in well with feminism, Christian feminism, and, more specifically, Catholic feminism. His world view is an expression of the foundation of feminist ideology: modern liberalism.
In a nutshell, Catholic feminism is not much different from any other variety of radical feminism. Catholic feminists hate men, or at best they have disdain for them, they promote the vilification of men, spread lies about men as batterers and women as victims, and they wish to replace God with the goddess.
Catholic feminism is actually a "goddess movement" in which the "goddess within" replaces the Christian God of objectivity and becomes the object of feminist worship.

Research debunks greenhouse theory: Proof exists (that greenhouse does not), but believers would rather denounce than debate
By Lorne Gunter
Too many scientists have based their research, their reputations and their incomes on the greenhouse theory to let it go now.

According to MerriamWebster's, "Götterdämmerung: twilight of the gods : a collapse (as of a society or regime) marked by catastrophic violence and disorder."
It appears that Quebec's justice minister Bellemare believes that he has just the thing that will save the newly-declared Nation of Quebec from the consequences of its crushing decline in its birth rates, arguably the lowest of all nations on Earth.
According to a Nov. 7, 2003, Montreal CBC article:
Bellemare said the current law discriminates against low-income parents to the point that it may even discourage them from having children with new partners.
He said that Bill 21 may reverse that trend and give Quebec's sagging birth rate a boost.
The Third Reich faced the reality of a similar catastrophe, and Hitler and Bormann (his personal secretary) had just the thing for that, too, but,
....When the slogan began to circulate "Honey, come on, let's go at it; let's make babies for the Leader,"* Hitler and Bormann became the laughing stock of their nation.
(* In the original German: "Liebchen, komm wir wollen reiten, Kinder machen fuer den Fuehrer.")
Let justice minister Bellemare take care that his handlers may not lead him to become the laughing stock of his nation on account of him trying to burden low-income second families with the duty to save Quebec's population from its looming extinction....
As the article at the preceding link explains, it will take far more than a Band Aid to solve the problem that the Powers in Quebec wish would go away. Pardon the pun, but Quebec's population decline is a pregnant issue that cannot be resolved by second families in a mere nine months, not even within ten years or more.

Global Temperature Changes — Update
What The Satellite Record Reveals
By Willis Eschenbach, (Nov. 4, 2003)
Willis Eschenbach made an analysis that shows that the global surface temperature record is riddled with errors, and that it just doesn't measure up to the quality of the satellite-measured temperature data that has been compiled since 1979. There isn't much global warming, and what of it exists is obviously not due to CO2 emissions, or else, according to the IPCC, the polar regions would be showing the largest temperature increases over time. Instead, the Arctic temperatures are showing only marginal increases, while the Antarctic experiences a cooling trend.
A summary of satellite-measured temperature-trend data produced by the NASA Global Hydrology and Climate Center agrees with the conclusions reached by Willis Eschenbach. (Full text — about two minutes)

Michele Landsberg no longer staff-writer for Toronto Star
After having written throughout the past 25 years pro-feminist, man-hating, left-wing opinion columns that often presented innovative and startling conclusions about the bad deeds that she alleged men do to married women and other people in epidemic proportions, Michele Landsberg "retired" from her position as staff-writer of the Toronto Star. Few journalists can claim to have contributed more than she did to the systematic destruction of Canadian families and the persistent slandering and vilification of men.
As a result of two findings by the Ontario Press Council following complaints about her creative ways of manufacturing concern, Michele Landsberg, banner carrier and icon of Canadian redfems, now stands officially exposed as a journalist who in her columns does not present the truth, nothing but the truth and all of the truth. And she finally "retired".
Michele Landsberg is the wife of Stephen Lewis (former leader of the Ontario New Democratic Party for years, in the '80s Canada's ambassador to the UN, then the U.N. Secretary General's Special Envoy for AIDS in Africa) and mother of Avi Lewis (host of the CBC's ultra-liberal talk show counterSpin Sunday).
Avi Lewis (UC ’88, Host and Producer) until last year he was host and a producer of CBC Newsworld’s counterSpin, as well as a former MuchMusic personality. He is a member of Canada’s leading socialist family: his father Stephen led the provincial NDP, grandfather David, the federal, and mother Michele Landsberg and wife Naomi Klein are left-leaning authors and journalists. Adapted from Young Offenders by Margaret Webb (University of Toronto Magazine, Summer 2001).

Avi Lewis said that he was raised as a feminist.

Great Alumni Humanitarians
From the website of Upper Canada College
Principles, especially when they were waved by her in everybody's face to promote her left-wing causes, were a big part of Michel Landsberg's repertoire of rhetoric, but, like other radical feminists, she did not stick to them if it wasn't convenient.
...Michele Landsberg, whose political orientation ought to make her one of public education's staunchest supporters, recently responded to a Maclean's reporter's question about why she had sent her son to private, and very expensive, Upper Canada College by saying: "It was against our principles to do it, but you do not sacrifice your kid to political principles."

Curing the Schools to Death: Saving Public Education from its Defenders
Perhaps Michele Landsberg feels as Hilary Clinton does, who once defended the state of the public education system by stating that under-educated people are much easier to govern. (by extension, that means also that those who got the best education will govern those that are under-educated or dumbed down.)
Canadian taxpayers and union members (a portion of the taxes and union dues we pay goes toward promoting and funding the NDP) have been kind to the Lewis family over the generations. Good bye, Michele Landsberg. It was mostly not nice getting to know you. (More)

Controversy Within Family Violence Research
Reena Sommer, Ph.D.
University of Manitoba, Canada
PRESENTED AT THE WOMEN'S FREEDOM NETWORK CONFERENCE
Washington, D.C., 14-15 October 1995
I have been involved in the study of partner abuse for the past eight years. My interest in this issue began with my concern about violence against women. Initially, my examination of partner abuse focused on courtship violence and spouse abuse perpetrated by men. My sense of curiosity led me to go against what I believed to be the essence of partner abuse and examine the prevalence of abuse perpetrated by women. Quite to my surprise, I found that women too, abused their male partners at equivalent rates. This led me to search out other research examining this issue, and again to my surprise I found my findings were not an anomaly, but had considerable support.
Considerable controversy has emerged as a result of studies finding equivalent rates of abuse for males and females. The rift within family violence research centers on how researchers have approached their investigations. On one hand, there is the unidimensional approach to partner abuse advanced by feminists. They view abuse between intimates as a problem of women being abused by men whereby the abuse is perceived as a dichotomous variable (abuse/no abuse) and seen in its most severe forms. On the other hand, sociologists and family researchers view partner abuse as being gender neutral and occurring along a continuum with no abuse at one end and very severe abuse at the other end.
I would like to address this controversy by first providing a backdrop to how the divisiveness in the study of partner abuse developed, and then by discussing some of the methodological and practical issues that have contributed to it.

Freedom, Equality, and Society's Treatment of Men and Families
A discussion of the totalitarian roots of the politics of sex and the implementation of the agenda for the planned destruction of our families
The use of force to achieve equality of outcome destroys freedom and families. To bring equality of outcome about for women requires discrimination against men and massive asset- and income-transfers from men to women. It's a lure that many women find impossible to resist. On the other hand, men, as well as women, are lured also through sexual freedom (the early communists called it "free love") although there is nothing free about free love. Both trends motivate more and more people to forego the altruism of families for the care by Father State via increasingly harsh, progressive and family-hostile taxation.
In the course of the implementation of the agenda for the planned destruction of our families, in all nations in whom the concept of western chivalry is part of social traditions, men die between six to fourteen years sooner than women. The two most populous nations on Earth experience virtually no differences in the average life expectancies of the sexes.

Ontario father in danger of being destroyed by the Canadian judiciary, for wanting to protect his daughter from violent, abusive mother
Eric Bouchard's case
Update 2003 10 23
Mother violent, abusive, made several suicide attempts, but CAS (Children's Aid Society — the gate-keeper when divorced or separated Ontario fathers long to see their children) refuses to inform the fathers of the two children about the mother's hospitalization on account of her latest suicide attempts and further refuses to tell the fathers anything about where the children are.
With the help of the judiciary, the mother demands child support for the same child from two different men, from the natural father whom she consistently denied all access to his daughter (for which she was even jailed during the course of one single weekend — one of only two women in Canada ever to be jailed for that criminal offence) and from the father of her second child, whom she denies access as well.
Are you willing to participate in a demonstration at the court house in St. Catharines (Oct.30, 2003) to protest the marginalization of fathers, and to see first-hand how the judiciary treats fathers who wish to protect their children?

Is this it, finally?
STMicroelectronics announced Sep. 30, 2003 that they expect soon to have solar cells on the market and in mass production that will generate power at a cost per Watt of one twentieth of that of conventional solar cells and of one half of the cost per Watt generated by means of fossil fuels.

Restitution for Paternity Fraud
The duped and cuckolded fathers condemned to a life-time of indentured servitude to mothers of children by other men are not the only ones who have to foot the emotional and financial bills for children with whom they should by rights have nothing to do. What about the other members of the "father's" half of the extended family and the emotional and financial investment made in vain by them to a cuckoo's egg? Will any of them ever get compensated for the loss and the great void in their hearts, the confusion and emotional turmoil they feel when they find out the truth? What about the children? What will they learn from what is being done to the men who are supposedly their fathers but obviously aren't? Will all that they learn be that honesty doesn't matter and that, if you are a woman and pregnant by a man you chose to impregnate you but whom you don't like for some reason to be the father of your child, just finger the wrong man to be the father – any convenient man – and the crime of lying pays so big that it is just as if you won the jackpot in the lottery.
If the law wishes that children should have respect for the law, let the law have respect for children, respect for the children's fathers and respect for men who are falsely alleged to be fathers.

...[T]wo scientists from the Institute of Solar-Terrestrial Physics of the Siberian Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences challenge the politically-correct global warming dogma that vexes the entire world. Bashkirtsev and Mashnich (2003) say that "a number of publications report that the anthropogenic impact on the Earth's climate is an obvious and proven fact," when in actuality, in their opinion, "none of the investigations dealing with the anthropogenic impact on climate convincingly argues for such an impact."....
In light of these several sets of real-world observations, we would not be at all surprised to find that Bashkirtsev and Mashnich will indeed be proven correct in their prediction of imminent, if not already-in-progress, global cooling. Full Story

The planned destruction of the family was part of the communist agenda from its inception by Karl Marx and Frederic Engels. It became government policy in the USSR in about 1917. It was so successful in the USSR that it threatened to destroy society in the USSR. Curiously, while in the 1940s the USSR took steps to repair the damages its family-hostile policies had caused, American communists imported the Soviet agenda for the planned destruction of the family into the USA. It has been and continues to be promoted by left-leaning liberals in the West ever since.

Feminists, pro-family activists and blacklists
Incredibly, in the face of catastrophically declining birth rates, escalating divorce rates and epidemic numbers of children who increasingly suffer the consequences of fatherlessness, the federal government of Canada provides $640,000 in funding to "women's" organizations for the express purpose to operate a program that will ferret out, label and eventually prosecute pro-family men, their supporters and their organizations as enemies of feminists?
In other places and other times such state-sponsored purges were launched to eradicate so-called enemies of the state, but never with the express purpose of destroying a country's economic and moral foundation, the wish to form families.

Gun-laundering registry a farce
One billion dollars a big investment for a national firearms lost and found

Wes Winkel, the manager of Ellwood Epps Sporting Goods in Orillia, Ont., -- "For all your hunting, shooting, fishing and camping needs" -- says "OPP[Ontario Provincial Police] officers were laughing their heads off," when they came this week to confiscate a hunting rifle from his store, just "two minutes north of Weber's barbeque restaurant," on Route 11. . . .
The rifle had been listed in the RCMP's national crime computers since it was reported stolen in Quebec in 1992. Still, the Liberals' national gun registry had registered it not once, nor twice, but three times. On the fourth, someone at the registry finally got around to matching the rifle to the RCMP's list of heisted guns and prevented its re-registration; actually, its re-re-re-registration.

Secrets of the Dead-Baby Industry (Revisited)
Aborted fetuses are being dissected alive, harvested and sold in pieces to fuel a vast research enterprise, by Celeste McGovern, Alberta Report
Aug. 23, 1999
Yes, that's no mistake! That is what happens with the results of abortions, they provide material for a thriving trade in body parts derived from unborn children ripped from their mothers' wombs. If you think that sounds bad, read the article! Here are a couple of excerpts:
The doctor walked into the lab and set a steel pan on the table. "Got you some good specimens," he said. "Twins." The technician looked down at a pair of perfectly formed 24-week-old fetuses moving and gasping for air. Except for a few nicks from the surgical tongs that had pulled them out, they seemed uninjured. "There's something wrong here," the technician stammered. "They are moving. I don't do this. That's not in my contract." She watched the doctor take a bottle of sterile water and fill the pan until the water ran up over the babies' mouths and noses. Then she left the room. "I would not watch those fetuses moving," she recalls. "That's when I decided it was wrong."....
Routinely, the women would go into labour before the final surgery. "They [the children] were coming out alive," says Kelly. Aside from the incident with the twins, she says, there were three to four live births in a typical two-week period. "The doctor would either break the neck or take a pair of tongs and basically beat the fetus until it was dead."

Sweden Backs Off U.S.-Style Child Support Reforms
Government Investigation Reveals Fundamental Flaws

1975-2000 was an era of radical international child support reform, beginning in the United States.

Military dads seek fair child support
By Marilyn Gardner | Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor ; 2003 04 02
Like many military reservists, Mark Wetzel took a pay cut when he was called for active duty last year. Instead of the $31,000 he earns as a nursing assistant in a Philadelphia hospital, he received $27,000 as a Navy corpsman serving in Kosovo.
But one thing didn't change: his child-support payments. A family court declined to reduce the $899 a month he pays to his estranged wife and two children.
As more National Guard and reserve units are deployed for the war in Iraq - 216,800 have been called to active duty so far - more noncustodial parents find themselves in the same circumstances that Wetzel did. If they fall behind in child-support payments because of reduced wages, they could incur penalties when they return home.... Full Story
The article does not mention another consequence for children of non-custodial dads who served in the military. It should have. There have been numerous instances where family courts restricted or even prohibited children of servicemen and ex-servicement who are non-custodial dads from having access to their fathers. The courts hold that their heroic fathers are trained killers and cannot be trusted to come into contact with their children.

Long-Range U.S. Drought Forecast
Dr. Theodor Landscheidt from the Schroeter Institute for Research in Cycles of Solar Activity predicts that it will remain dry until 2007, upon which there will be seven to eight years of wet weather followed by another dry period that will peak in the 2025-2030 interval. There are good reasons to believe the prediction. Unlike the general circulation models used by climate alarmists, Dr. Landscheidt's forecasting technique produced other predictions that were right on the nose. Moreover, his technique accurately simulates the climate the way it was going back to the year 1900, a level of accuracy that the climate alarmists still only dream of and hope to be able to achieve if only they were to receive increased funding from our hard-earned tax-dollars.

Austria launches program for the examination and improvement of the status of men
Many people are enthused about what the Austrians are doing, and some of what is in the program outline is impressive. However, there is also considerable reason for concern. Rather than to spend time on an exhaustive analysis and assessment of what the proposed program may and may not do, comments were appended that address concerns relating almost entirely to the context in which the Austrian Program for the Examination of the Status of Men will be operating, as well as to concerns about what seems to peek through, fairly obviously, between some of the lines of the program outline.
In general, there is reason to be considerably less than enthused about the Austrian plans. They seem to contain a liberal dose of further intrusion by the State into personal lives and into the lives of families. More on that is provided in the individual footnotes linked throughout the translation of the program outline. The question arises whether it is the government's business and duty to define and implement the rules for what comprises families, or whether families still have any power at all to have the government support, promote and nurture the concept of the nuclear family.
