The Catholic Church ~ What next?

Stephen Harper attacked right from pulpit of Catholic Church

The far left Development and Peace representing other leftist groups came to Catholic Church in Canada today, elbowing the Gospel of Jesus Christ aside for a full-tilt campaign speech for the Coalition Opposition.

In the last message heard before the final blessing was given, parishioners were told to “get on their computers” to spread the word that the Conservative Government of Prime Minister Stephen Harper is forcing Canada into the European Union.

The exact words of Susan at St. Gabriel’s Roman Catholic Church, Burlington, Ontario, who plugged the website of the Council of Canadians among others:  “The Harper Conservatives are planning our country’s entrance into the European Union.  Did you know this?”
(go to the 1:04 mark on CFP YouTube).

Nor did the political message stop there.  “We need to protect our freedoms here and now,” Susan said.

Why would the Catholic Church which was known as a bastion of conservatism attack a Conservative Political Party?

Is it because of the record number of Catholic Priests being charged with sex offences and child molestation ?

Can the Conservative Party's tough stance on sex offenders and moral degenerates be rankling a few feathers in the Flock ?

As a 'conservative' I could understand it if they attacked the Liberals and NDP over something like abortion, but this, this is just plain disgusting on so many fronts.

While I'm no fan of the Roman Catholic Church as a whole, I'm pretty surprised to see that the Catholic Church would support Liberals who are anti-everything that the Catholic Church claims to stand for.

However, is this video representative of the Catholic Church as a whole or is it just one person pretending to speak for the Catholic Church?

but it was an ordinary person doing it

But it was allowed to be said from the pulpit during Mass, and not just once but twice.

I thought people weren't supposed to discuss politics in bars or churches. Thank GOG bars are still sacred.

y ARPA Canada (www.ARPACanada.ca) There is fear and hesitation among many churches to get involved in anything political. There are a few reasons for this. First, most churches are registered as charitable organizations which allows them to provide tax receipts for the donations they receive. As registered charities, Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) enforces strict regulations about what they may do, including when it comes to politics. Since churches want to be able to continue giving tax receipts to members, they are very careful to not do anything that may jeopardize their charitable status. A second reason for the fear of politics has to do with the sensitive nature of the subject. Christians have very different perspectives on how to vote and many are tired of the debate over which party to support. Added to this, there is also a longstanding sentiment that politics is about the ways of the world and Christians should spend their time on our own church and family activities such as mission, evangelism, and world relief.

Congregations of Christian churches across Canada are being asked to tell the federal Conservative government they don’t want to pay for its justice agenda.

The Church Council on Justice and Corrections, a 39-year-old coalition for justice reform that represents 11 of the largest Christian denominations, has written a strongly worded letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper condemning legislation that is expected to increase the number of convicts dramatically and require billions of dollars worth of prison construction.
