Of course the Bishops of the Catholic Church in Quebec do not want the Crucifix to remain in the National Assembly. Who in God's green earth would want to be part of the scent of a mandated religion, including bishops? Who would want to be part of a heritage structure in an assembly, when one is part of a living religion, not a historical society? This is Canada and if a particular government within the country chooses to fossilize Christianity we are not going to be mandated as a thing of the past, so remove the crucifix for God's sake now and the one on the mountain too. We'll join the abundant religions that seek peace and goodwill to all mankind. It's not the end of secularism, that's for sure, but hopefully it's moving toward the end of sectarianism. At least I hope God gets my drift because he has a big stake in the matter. I'm hoping that Sophocles once again will remind us all, as he did, that, "Without numbers are the world's wonders, but none more wonderful than man." Let's not write anyone off.
