Will Canadian Bishop Face More Trouble For Stating Religious Views?

In a country that is increasingly using federal government agencies and laws to suppress free speech and religious expression, Bishop Fred Henry seems determined to seek a showdown with Ottawa's oppressive and corrupt Liberal Party regime by stating firm religious viewpoints. What will the government's response be? Something to watch in less-free Canada:

CALGARY, January 13, 2005 ( - In what is likely to be the most effective, and strongest letter ever issued by a Canadian Bishop in defence of traditional marriage, Calgary's Bishop Fred Henry is to release a pastoral letter this weekend which cuts to the heart of the debate.

Bishop Henry, who recently courageously stood up to threats by Revenue Canada agents over his pre-election comments about the Prime Minister's moral incoherence on abortion and same-sex unions, writes: "Since homosexuality, adultery, prostitution and pornography undermine the foundations of the family, the basis of society, then the State must use its coercive power to proscribe or curtail them in the interests of the common good."

The pastoral letter begins by emphasizing that the fight to preserve marriage in Canada is far from over. The bishop points out that Canada's Supreme Court justices did not say that Parliament "must redefine marriage to include same-sex couples." However, Bishop Henry also castigates the Court justices and all others who use the Constitution's Charter of Rights and Freedoms as their authority to justify the imposition of radical social changes on the nation.
