“About 40 churches in Quebec fall out of use each year, often because dwindling congregations can no longer pay the bills. In some cases, the deterioration of the church’s earthly realm has fostered a new alliance of church and state.” writes Robert Everett-Green of the Globe & Mail

“Quebec City and the provincial government, for example, are supporting the historic churches of Father Bélanger’s parish to the tune of $30-million over 10 years. That largesse is founded on abstract values of cultural heritage, but also on the buildings’ appeal for tourists, who make up three-quarters of the 1 million who visit each year, according to a study in 2014.”

Meanwhile, “Canada’s Parliament will ask the Pope to reconsider his refusal to apologize to the Indigenous people who attended Catholic-run residential schools, and for the Catholic Church to make good on its financial obligations under the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement.” writes Gloria Galloway at the Globe and Mail.

Apparently, the Vatican is seeing it’s dwindling numbers reflect the reality that it’s life long ambitions to take advantage of people for their own selfish wanton luxuries and gross perversions is now finally coming to an end in Quebec. Now, why the government is now still funding this abominable stain on our Province is what we would like to ask! Or is that because the Quebec governments have been held captives for years with their devilish sect!
