Mr. Speaker, those are interesting comments coming from a government that threatened a bishop of the Roman Catholic Church.
Public officials, including teachers and marriage commissioners, are being fired from their jobs as a direct result of the changes being made in the definition of marriage. Now activists are threatening to have the charitable tax status of Canada's churches revoked and the minister has done absolutely nothing to protect those religious organizations.
The minister has refused to address those concerns. He has in fact ensured that some minorities are protected while others are not. Why is that?
