‘Archbishop Schools Prime Minister On Charter And Catholicism’

“It’s “logically impossible” for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to consider himself Catholic and pro-abortion, Ottawa Archbishop Terrence Prendergast wrote.

“He made this point in an Ottawa Sun editorial slamming the ‘Liberal’ government’s requirement that employers sign a pro-abortion, pro-transgender attestation for summer jobs grants.

“Prendergast rebuked Trudeau’s “disingenuous” claim that the Charter includes a “right” to abortion. The archbishop, a Jesuit, lamented the prime minister’s “confused personal comments” about reconciling his Catholicism with support of abortion on demand.

“There are no Charter reproductive rights or reproductive freedoms despite the Prime Minister’s claims,”
Prendergast wrote.
“Any Canadian can verify this by reading the Charter of Rights and Freedoms online. Nonetheless, Employment and Social Development Canada can now deny organizations summer job funding if they fail to endorse a non-existent right.”

“This new pro-abortion requirement is dismaying to Canadian Catholics, Prendergast explained, because

“this attestation excludes any Catholic parish or charity from [government] funding for hiring a summer student.”

“We cannot affirm that we support a (non-existent) right to abortion, which is what the euphemism ‘reproductive rights’ means,”
he wrote.

“Further upsetting many is the Prime Minister’s confused personal comments regarding the logically impossible coexistence of his identity as a Roman Catholic and his support of abortion,”
Prendergast continued.
“The National Post states, ‘He’s a Catholic who has long had to reconcile his religious beliefs with his responsibilities as a political leader, and he said the latter demands that he defend people’s rights.’”

“Even if Trudeau were not a Catholic Christian,”
he simply
“cannot invent, promote or defend a non-existent right.”

“Trudeau…received Holy Communion at a Catholic Mass in May, 2017.

“His Excellency Christian Lépine, the archbishop of Montreal, said his dispensing of the Eucharist to Trudeau at that Mass was a

“gesture of hope.”

“For someone to start questioning my own faith and accusing me of being a bad Catholic, is something that I really take issue with. My own personal faith is an extremely important part of who I am and the values that I try to lead with.”
–Justin Trudeau
