Document the atrocities, Catholic-style.

One more busy day this week so why don't you pop over here and luxuriate in the lunatic rantings of the National Post's resident religious dumbass, Father Raymond J. De Souza?

Really, he's always good for a chuckle, as long as you don't take him too seriously. Ummmm ... you weren't taking him seriously, were you?

I liked how he cited dozens and dozens of attacks on religion in Canada with actually, you know, mentioning any of them.

Except Bishop Henry. Poor, persecuted Bishop Henry. Let's take up a collection for him.

It's pretty lunatic, all right. If I were to hazard a guess, I'd say that his argument is that you can't always respect both 'freedom of religion' and 'equality' at the same time, and that religion should take legal precedence based on the order in which they are mentioned in the Charter.

That and the French Revolution was "lamentable".

There's a couple of thoughts I have on this.

First, why is it that the "religious freedom" has to include denigrating and demonizing other people?

Second, not one of these clowns has ever brought forward a case where their "freedom" is being curtailed that does not involve imposing their belief system upon others.

Grog, I can't believe you've forgotten about the war on Christmas. That was a clear-cut attack by secular leftists on the Christian ability to say "Merry Christmas". That's illegal now, remember?

What? It isn't? Well, speaking as a secular leftist, it should be.
