“We pray for our Sovereign, Queen Elizabeth and the Governor-General.”
Black Québécois put forward a motion to abolish prayer, which has been read in Parliament since 1877 at the beginning of each session. Bravo!
Yes, it is relevant in 2022
According to Justin Trudeau, this is not a priority. Religious and secular issues may be retaliated as “very high priority” for occupying much of the English debate during the last federal election.
In the midst of the federal debate, the place of religion in our institutions was precise when media leaders, with the tacit complicity of the chiefs, regarded the Quebecs as racists because of the values of secularism protected by Bill 21. Question. Hypocrisy.
The Quebec Bashing Full range in Canada. Double talk of continuing to defend Catholic prayer, which does not include the same people who hate the secular Quebec majority. So, yes, debating the place of religion in parliament is the topic.
Catholics against abortion
The Catholic Church condemns abortion as immoral and if we know that about forty members of the conservative religious right are against abortion, we have a greater right to discuss this liturgy in Parliament in 2022.
In short, it is a paradox that that prayer still exists in the largest Canadian democratic institution, but what is unacceptable above all is that those who want to keep it are the same people who despise Quebec.
In Quebec, prayer was abolished almost 50 years ago. In this, as with many issues, there is a different way of approaching Canadians to content and religion. Canada has nothing to teach us.
Thanks to Black Quebecois for pointing out all the Canadian contradictions. When will there be a movement to change the national anthem glorifying “God”? I did not even dare to think of a constitution that recognizes the supremacy of God … Long live Canada!
