Proposed world religions course is a response to a problem that doesn't exist

One would be forgiven for thinking that this Government has little time for religion, and even less time for the Catholic Church.
It would protest very loudly against such a notion, of course, but consider the fact that it closed our embassy to the Holy See. It introduced our first abortion law. It redefined marriage and the family.
In passing our first abortion law, it told Catholic hospitals that they must perform abortions under its terms, regardless of ethos. Even countries with more liberal abortion laws than ours rarely do this. Spinelessly, the hospitals complied.
