Steynianism 121

With the hearts and souls unbound, Benedict XVI is ministering to minds, now free. This is testament to a certain truth. You cannot minister to a mind if hearts and souls are enslaved. A mind set free is a mind that can learn and grow. A mind mired in oppressive tyranny will atrophy. Benedict’s mission is not simply academic or intellectual. Love sets the stage and always precedes learning- and that lesson is ever present. One cannot teach if there is no real bond between teacher and student. Benedict XVI understanding of proportion, perception and reality serve to highlight and define the real meaning of ‘calling.’

Steyn Linkery

~ THANK YOU! — “Warman Wednesday, our special fundraiser for the Freedom Five, was a huge success. We raised a lot of money from sales of America Alone and Mark’s other books, and just as importantly we learned that Canada’s beleaguered bloggers have good friends in almost every corner of the earth. The day ended as it began, with readers from New Zealand, Australia and California. In between, as the time zones rolled around, we heard from folks in Asia, Europe, the British Isles, Iceland, the Eastern Seaboard and the North American heartland who all wanted to support the campaign for free speech in Canada. Mark’s autographing arm will be a bleeding stump by the time all the books are signed but we promise to get all the orders processed and in the mail within the next few days.” Here at FreeMarkSteyn, we recommend the Soul Comfort STUMP PROTECTOR. 850 grams of Wool for all your stumpy needs! ….

~ ALONE IN CANADA: Mark will be at the World Press Freedom Awards in Ottawa on May 2nd; at Indigo Books in Toronto on May 7th; and, just ahead of his show trial, on May 26th he’ll be in Vancouver …. (

~ GOOD FOR HIM!– CBC NEWS BOSS admits cowardice over newsworthiness re Muslim cartoons. But.. wait: it’s a Religion of Peace™–? Apology to Ezra frothcoming? …. (marginalizedactiondinosaur)

“I believe that human rights commissions are being sufficiently denormalized in the court of public opinion that it’s time to put pressure on politicians to do something about it. In other words, we should continue to expose the corrupt practices of the Dean Steacys and Richard Warmans of this world. But we should start to move the pressure to the people who are supposed to be in charge of the whole thing — and, in the case of the CHRC, that’s Rob Nicholson. I’m a Conservative partisan, but my love is not so blind that I can defend Nicholson’s inaction — though, given that a lawyer from Nicholson’s department is actively intervening for the CHRC in the Lemire case, I don’t think we can even say the Tories are neutral or inactive in this matter.”

~ PLEASE TO SURRENDER! On their knees in the Temple: “The Archbishop of Canterbury’s infamous lecture on sharia was the launch event of a series of discussions at Temple Church under the heading ‘Islam in English law’. The very title of this series might well raise an eyebrow among those who believe naively that the law of the land is the law for all minorities, since it assumes by definition that the extent to which Islam may or may not be accommodated by English law is an issue to be discussed” ….
