The 7 Beatitudes of The Revelation

            Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear, and who keep what is written in it, for the time is near.
(Revelation 1:3 ESV)

            And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.” “Blessed indeed,” says the Spirit, “that they may rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them!”
(Revelation 14:13 ESV)

            (“Behold, I am coming like a thief! Blessed is the one who stays awake, keeping his garments on, that he may not go about naked and be seen exposed!”)
(Revelation 16:15 ESV)

            And the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” And he said to me, “These are the true words of God.”
(Revelation 19:9 ESV)

            Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.
(Revelation 20:6 ESV)

            “And behold, I am coming soon. Blessed is the one who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”
(Revelation 22:7 ESV)

            Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.
(Revelation 22:14 ESV)

Double Standards in Ontario Concerning Abortion

The National Post has an excellent opinion piece noting the hypocritical actions of the Crown in persecuting those who voice an opinion against abortion.  The legal issues in the case against Linda Gibbons are complicated, but not more so than many other cases. Somehow, our government seems to have lots of time and resources to keep pounding away at this.

Parade naked in Toronto. Shout at a woman wearing fur. Acceptable.

Stand quietly with information about abortion within 60 feet of an abortion clinic. A crime.
