    “We are not nearly countercultural enough or prophetic enough,” Bishop Henry said

    The Bishop warned that the Church in Canada will face increasing attempts to privatize and marginalize religion, resulting in increased discrimination and restrictions. He suggested that the Human Rights Commissions and Tribunals “will in all likelihood act as the thought-police” in coming years, to enforce politically correct thinking.

    The Calgary bishop stated clearly that Catholic politicians, in particular, have an unavoidable responsibility to bring the fundamental convictions of their faith into their public work.
    “In undertaking any public initiative, it is morally incoherent to leave out completely one’s own fundamental convictions…The truth regarding the human person and obligations to uphold this truth do not change when a politician leaves the security of the home and ventures into the secular or political sphere,” Bishop Henry said. “In all that he or she does, the Catholic politician must work to proclaim and put into action the truth about man and the world.”

    A bold witness in a cold place.
