Lifeshit News strokes themselves into another OoC orgasm:
9th Order of Canada to be Returned over Award to Abortionist
The siblings of the late Alphonse Gerwing and the Alphonse Charity Foundation have unanimously agreed to return the Order of Canada medal
By John-Henry Westen
KELOWNA, BC, July 21, 2008 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The siblings of the late Alphonse Gerwing and the Alphonse Charity Foundation have unanimously agreed to return the Order of Canada medal he was awarded in 1989. The decision was made to add their voices in protest of the awarding of the Order of Canada to abortionist Henry Morgentaler.
This time, however, someone is a bit hacked off about it:
The Gerwing gambit
July 23, 2008
Victoria -- As a former Benedictine monk and a member of the Gerwing family, I find it disconcerting to think that Canada might remove the name of Alphonse Gerwing from the Order of Canada at the behest of the John Gerwing family (Humanitarian's Family Returns Order Of Canada - B.C. and online editions, July 22).
Alphonse was a kind and remarkable man who richly deserved this honour. The Order of Canada was not given to the John Gerwing family, and they have absolutely no right to return it simply because they disagree with the fact that Henry Morgentaler is also a recipient. Canada should not accept the return of such an honour unless it is explicitly written into the deceased person's will.
Dear ignorant wanks: Here's a thought. Unless it's your personal Order of Canada, just shut the fuck up. No one cares what you think.
P.S. By the way, wanks ... what part of "A person's membership in the Order ceases when (a) the person dies; ..." are you still having such difficulty with?
Jesus. Intolerant and stupid. What a crippling combination.
Three dead people, "three anonymous recipients," and one child-abusing priest. What's next, a partridge in a pear tree?
Returning the medal doesn't constitute a resignation from the Order of Canada anyway.
55% of OcC recipients who answered the spambot telephone poll returned their medal, 19 times out of 20, with a margin of error of 3%. And a 95% confidence interval. Plus a demographically weighted geographic sample. And a geological survey.
