Archdiocese of Toronto doesn't support separation of church and state
I was flicking around the TV tonight and I saw a priest from the archdiocese of Toronto being interviewed on Focus Ontario. You're going to love this story.
Apparently the good Pope Benedict has reiterated that politicians who support abortion are not to receive communion in Catholic churches...in other words, be excommunicated. I guess this is actually happening in Mexico. Ontario premier Dalton McGuinty was asked about it and said, quite rightly, that as premier it was his duty to represent Ontarians of all faiths and that he didn't know of any politicians that took orders exclusively from the Vatican. He basically pointed out that the church has their role and politicians have a different one.
So they cut back to this Toronto priest and the interviewer asks him if he agrees with McGuinty that there should be a separation of church and state. And the guy says "First of all, separation of Church and State is a very American concept, and this is Canada."
So the archdiocese of Toronto doesn't support the separation of Church and State!? Fucking hell, somebody put these clowns in their place!! I almost hope they get their way so that we all can see the looks on their faces when the Indians in Brampton vote in the Hindu Party and they decree that Catholic churches aren't tax-exempt any more. I bet there'd be a real run on democracy in the church then.
It's getting out of hand. The churchmen really are starting to think that they should be running things.
Lazy is a word we use when someone isn't doing what we want them to do.
