A family’s controversial testimony during public hearings into Quebec’s secularism charter has brought widespread attention…

In her testimony, Genevieve Caron says she was stunned to see people on small rugs while they prayed in a Moroccan mosque.

“Praying on all fours on a carpet, what is that all about?” she asked.

She adds she was taken aback when she was asked to follow the custom of removing her shoes before entering the building.

I remember going to a well-known place of worship in Montreal,  seeing women dressed in black, climbing 100 steps on their knees. I was stunned. What is that all about?

  1. There has to be some way to ensure people’s safety. I don’t think religious freedom trumps people’s safety. It’s just not that important to me. Some dogma is just plain nuts.

  2. @chas: This is about how elites will do anything to stay in power, including disturbing the sleeping dogs of ethnic insecurity and racial hatred, under the guise of protecting human rights.

    The Quebec government is probably going to lose the next election so they have invented a “problem” about how secularism is under attack in Quebec. They have now created a problem where bigoted individuals are targeting visible minorities and openly saying, “I don’t want non-white people here.”

    The people who are unsafe are the visible minorities, as usual. People who wear “religious” garb; headscarves, turbans, the kippah, are being explicitly told they are not welcome in Quebec.

  3. Well they sure took away our right to privacy in the name of security. I’d hate to think religion is giving anyone a free ride.

  4. “If they come for me in the morning, they will come for you in the night.”
