Canadian government to Catholic Church: Piss off.

Well, it's about time:

The Roman Catholic Church should keep its nose out of the government's same-sex marriage legislation, Foreign Affairs Minister Pierre Pettigrew suggested yesterday.

Asked about plans by church groups in Quebec to launch a campaign against same-sex marriage, Mr. Pettigrew said the government and churches should not get involved in each other's affairs.

No shit. Given the Catholic Church's somewhat unseemly history here in Canada, they really are the last people who should be lecturing anyone on the propriety of sexual relations. Assholes.
