Citizenship officials ban the Bible.
The official's decree is ah explicit attack on Christianity, and a declaration that Canadians are now supposed to worship ah idol, multiculturalism. Reverend Phyllis Nesbitt, national director of the Bible Society, commented, "They say that this is about freedom of religion, but the government is actually curtailing freedom of religion." She noted that "this great nation of Canada was built on a strong religious foundation," and that to reject holy books at citizenship ceremonies reinforces secular, irreligious philosophies.
Simard's decree--and one may ask with what authority ?--is facilitated by the general attitude of the current Federal Liberal government. It is Christianity, not multiculturalism, that is the bedrock of Canada.
