Neutrality plea a way to forget past?
For many decades, Quebec was known for its ties to the Catholic Church. Then, for various reasons, the province became increasingly secular.
Could it be that those who now wear across, ki pp ah, hi jab or turban are reminding us of a past we have chosen to abandon? Could the state’ s plea for religious neutrality bean excuse to help us forget what we were?
In any case, I am much more frightened by cyclists on our side walks, motorists who speed through yellow lights or race on Metropolitan Blvd ., and aggressive pan handlers than I am of those who display a religious symbol.
