Ottawa Archbishop circulating letter to priests about Trudeau banning pro-lifers

trudeau catholic

First the Edmonton Archbishop slammed Liberal leader Justin Trudeau in the media for his policy of not allowing anyone in the party who is pro-life:

“This is an outrage for a man who hopes to be Prime Minister some day, to stand up on the eve of a day when thousands of people are coming out to speak in favour of the vulnerable, to speak in favour of the protection of life in the womb, to come out and slap them all in the face. I just find that absolutely outrageous.” (see here)

Then the Toronto Archbishop came out in the media:

“Political leaders in our day should not exclude such people of integrity, no matter how challenging they find their views,” he wrote. “I urge you to reconsider your position” (see here)

And now the Ottawa Archbishop has stepped it up:

Archbishop of Ottawa Terrence Prendergast responded by circulating a letter to priests in his archdiocese.

“The position of the Catholic Church in favour of life at all stages is clear and unchanging,” Prendergast says in his letter. “One may not dissent from these core teachings on life issues and be considered a Catholic in good standing.”

Priests were to make the letter available to churchgoers on Sunday, reminding them “a human being is always sacred and inviolable, in any situation and at every stage of development.” (see here)

Three Archbishops have now publicly spoken out against Trudeau’s edict – no biggie right?

    Believing as I do that the liberal leader’s main appeal is to anti-Catholics, coming as he does from Quebec and their rather biased view of the Catholic Church, said leader’s bona fides is proven to his target constituency by being attacked by the Church leaders. Unfortunately I see the Catholic leaders as being a bit weak in their taking on of young leader. Just like they did with his father when they gave him a state funeral and held it in one of their churches and had one of their clergy officiate they have not removed young leader from their roles. I know full well that should said shiny pony show up on my church I would refuse him communion based on his pro-death stance.

    Appears politics trumps personal religious beliefs for Justin. He made a decision to go for pro choice which includes allowing abortion but he made it worse by saying a person who is pro life is not allowed to run for the Liberal party he fronts. Now if the Catholic church is to follow it’s doctrine, he should not be allowed Communion, it would be a sham for him to show up for it.
    I love how the media try to pull Harper into the fray but he’s a tad smarter on this, Conservatives are free to honour their own conscience and none are barred from running for their stance on abortion, it’s just not on the agenda.

    JT is not an intellect, he just spews out whatever bilge water he happens to be swimming around in.

    I’m awaiting JTs announcement that only Satanists, and those who practice child sacrifice to Molloch can represent the LIEberal party.

    Naturally, this is known as ‘widening the net’,….in Dante’s 8th circle of hell.

    Horns and cloven feet are optional…

    JT is well on his way to making the 3rd party the 13th party.

    Maybe they should just rename the LIEberal party the Black Farce party; Blackbeard would be envious!

    If I had to guess I figure Trudeau’s stance would result in someone wiining a settlement from a human rights commission complaint. He’s basically saying you cannot apply for the job because of your religious beliefs.

      Oh that’s good. I would love to see someone do that and then see how he reacts. More importantly how would the main stream media “spin it” so their golden boy gets elected.

  5. Jen Says:

    As Justin said in replica to his father Pierre words “Just watch me”,

  6. Maryls Says:

    I think the Catholics have been strong Liberal supporters. Justin will likely not gain votes over this, but I suspect he will lose some.
