Go to: Canadians losing faith in religion

"religious institutions"

"They're the first on the ground when there's a humanitarian disaster or a tornado or a hurricane, and they're often the unsung heroes."

In Britain we have emergency services who are first on the scene, do they not have this system in Canada?

In Britain the religious institutions are normally being interviewed the next day to tell us how shocked the community is.

Strange how the media rarely use the phrase "militant christian" or "miltant catholic". With the root of militant being militare or "to serve as a soldier" you would have thought it was a much more apt phrase to use when referring to "The Salvation Army" or "Jesus Army" who seem to be self professed militants.

Even when religious people use violence they are not deemed to be "miltant". Then they are just mad not really religious. Not true believers.

It could be abuse or voluntary, hence the far harsher punishment for abuse.

We should also stop aid to countries where the catholic church prevents the use of condoms to prevent HIV spreading. That isn't persecution it's murder.
