PUBLIC CRUCIFIX

A debate is emerging in Quebec about what is a « reasonable » accommodation of the clothing and religious symbols of ethnic minorities e.g. Muslims, Sikhs or Hindu women.  Now it is the turn of the Roman Catholics.  A large crucifix has adorned the Quebec National Assembly since 1936.  There is  growing sentiment to have it removed.  As the P.Q. leader, Andre Boisclair put it:  « In a pluralistic society religious symbols have no place in public space. »

           Is this political correctness gone berserk?

    Isn’t it ironic, that everybody wants to come here because of what we have made of this country and once they are here, they all try to change everything. When did majority rule no longer count and all it takes is one voice or complaint to change something.

    Bush is forever saying that democracies do not invade other countries and start wars. Well, he did just that. He invaded Iraq, started a war, and killed people. What do you think? What is he doing to us, and what is he doing to the world?
    Our country is in debt until forever, we don’t have jobs, and we live in fear. We have invaded a country and been responsible for thousands of deaths.
    The more people that the government puts in jails, the safer we are told to think we are. The real terrorists are wherever they are, but they aren’t living in a country with bars on the windows. We are.
