No such thing as “good polygamy”

first_imgMercatorNet 25 Nov 2011Marriage and family advocacy groups have greeted with enthusiasm a Canadian court decision upholding the country’s ban on polygamy, published yesterday.British Columbia Supreme Court Chief Justice, Robert Bauman, has ruled that the government of Canada may continue to prohibit polygamy because, although the law does impinge on the right to freedom of religion, that harm is outweighed by the harms that polygamy inflicts on women and children, and to the institution of monogamous marriage. “There is no such thing as so-called ‘good polygamy’,” said Bauman.The Alliance Defence Fund, an association of Christian lawyers represented by Gerald Chipeur in the court case, said that the court “recognized that marriage is about children and parents, and that Parliament has a very important role to play in protecting the family. The court also recognized that Parliament, not the courts, has the authority to define marriage.” The court had accepted their argument “that, under the Constitution of Canada, Parliament may define marriage as no more than two people,” said Chipeur.“Some organizations claim that same-sex ‘marriage’ won’t open the door to polygamy and group marriage, but that’s what nearly happened in British Columbia,” said ADF Senior Legal Counsel Austin R. Nimocks. “Had marriage never been attacked there in the first place, it’s questionable whether this particular assault would have ever occurred. Canada just dodged a bullet for the moment; Americans should take notice because this country need not risk the same thing.”http://www.mercatornet.com/family_edge/view/9993last_img read more

Win number one on the season for Trey Schmidt came in the Sept. 12 Southern United Sprint feature at 105 Speedway. (Photo by Ron Skinner) Schmidt, who had put a new motor in just the night before, was on the outside pole for the initial start, then moved to the pole after a multi-car melee. CLEVELAND, Texas (Sept. 12) – Trey Schmidt showed he was almost as good at tossing an egg as he is wheeling an IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car.center_img Kids from the grandstand were teamed up with the top qualifying drivers from heats in an egg toss competition to determine the front eight starting positions in the feature. “I searched around in one and two to find speed. I tried all different lines. Three and four were locked down and super fast,” he said. “It feels great to get this win. It came at the right time.” Schmidt topped the Saturday Southern United Sprint feature at 105 Speedway, getting his first win of the season and staying in contention for a second career SUS title. last_img read more

Sacre seeks Champion crown

first_img Press Association Unbeaten in seven races over fences, including the Arkle Trophy at last year’s Festival, Sprinter Sacre has understandably frightened away a lot of the opposition. He still has decent rivals to beat, headed by the 2011 Champion hero Sizing Europe, and Henderson is not taking anything for granted. Henderson added: “He’s something to watch and, from Barry’s (Geraghty) point of view, he said he’s the most spectacular thing he’s ever sat on. He enjoys it, but I don’t. The pressure is on because everybody will expect one of his flashy performances and I hope he can deliver again. “He finds it ridiculously easy, but Cheltenham is Cheltenham and the course takes plenty of jumping. He is a hugely talented natural athlete. He and Simonsig are two of the best work horses I have ever had. Sprinter Sacre is the one we would be disappointed with if he doesn’t win.” While a lot of trainers decided not to take on Sprinter Sacre, Tom George took the plunge and supplemented Mail De Bievre at the confirmation stage. The French-bred eight-year-old showed plenty of pace on his British debut in the Denman Chase over three miles last month before fading into fifth place behind Gold Cup fancy Silviniaco Conti. George reports Mail De Bievre to have benefited immensely for the outing. The trainer said: “He’s come on a lot since he went to Newbury. He’s very sharp and I’m looking forward to him running. He’s able and very ready for the big day. He’ll make it a good gallop, that is one thing we do know.” Nicky Henderson admits he will be disappointed if Sprinter Sacre is beaten in the Sportingbet Queen Mother Champion Chase at Cheltenham today.center_img The seven-year-old is many punters’ idea of the banker of the week and has been long odds-on for the two-mile showpiece since the ante-post book was opened. “He knows he’s good looking, he knows he’s good – it really is ‘look and watch me’. It’s all flashy and show. I’m never going to say he’s the best (I have trained) – I don’t know who was – but he’s right up there,” said the Seven Barrows trainer. last_img read more

Alleged Halloween gunman charged with four counts of attempted murder

first_imgA 20-year-old Inglewood man, who was arrested last week in connection to an on-campus shooting, has been charged with four counts of attempted murder, the Los Angeles district attorney’s office said Monday.Authorities said Brandon Spencer opened fire on four people, including former Crenshaw High School football player Geno Hall, at an Oct. 31 party promoted by LA Hype in association with the Black Student Assembly. At least seven gunshots were fired at approximately 11:45 p.m. last Wednesday when one suspect engaged in a physical confrontation with Hall. Hall sustained at least seven gunshot wounds to his left thigh, back of his leg, buttocks and arm, according to the Los Angeles Times. Three other victims were also wounded and transported to California Hospital Medical Center, but are expected to make a full recovery. The complaint alleges that the shooting was to benefit a criminal street gang.Student leaders from BSA, the Undergraduate Student Government and USC Program Board have issued statements in response to the incident as well as a letter to the Daily Trojan, which states that BSA will suspend social events for the remainder of the semester and that Program Board will increase the scrutiny it places on outside organizations for co-sponsoring events.Deputy District Attorney Antonella Nistorescu — from the hardcore gang division — will prosecute and ask that bail be set at $2.04 million at an arraignment Monday afternoon. If convicted, Spencer will face up to life in prison.last_img read more

Graduation and Drop Out Rates Remain Stable for Northeast Michigan Schools

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisMichigan High School students are graduating and drop out rates are remaining stable, and that includes Northeast Michigan High Schools. According to the Michigan Center for Educational Performance and Information, and Michigan School Data, for 2016, Alpena High School has over 86% of its students graduating with only 6% dropping out.Principal, Matthew Poli said it’s about keeping students engaged with new programs.“We’ve been able to bring in some things in the past couple of years to really help kids stay engaged in school. One of them is, our career and tech program where students can actually get certified. I will use welding as an example; they can go through our program. There’s a lot of kids, schools not their cup of tea, it’s hard for them. They don’t necessarily like what we do or how we do it. But if we get them into a program where they have a passion, whether it’s in welding, automotive, or healthcare occupations where they can do what they really haven’t been able to do before, they really start to see the value in it . They start to say ‘well if I do this, I can go out and start making a living now,’” Poli explained.Poli adds that teachers and staff keep an eye on students by having a connection with them.“We have a lot of kids that struggle for a lot of different reasons. It might be home life, it might be again, and school might not be their interest. It’s two things we teach in education, and that’s reading, writing, arithmetic…but you really have to teach socialization. How do you connect them? I think one of the great things we do here, and we continue to do is try to connect with kids,” he said.Other local high school graduation rates were also shown. Rogers City High School’s graduation rate was 98%. Posen was 95%. Atlanta high school’s rate was 62%. Hillman’s rate was 69%.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Drop Out Rates, High School GraduationContinue ReadingPrevious Spring Break Brings Many Activities for Families at Northern Lights ArenaNext Red Cross in Need of More Donations for the Springlast_img read more
