Faith hasn’t served us well

The Beacon Herald - - OPINION -

Gov. Gen. Julie Payette speaks to the re­al­ity of sci­ence, while some politi­cians ac­cuse her of be­lit­tling those who be­lieve in an­cient gods and su­per­sti­tions. These so-called be­liev­ers and their so-called rights-to-be­lieve have hardly served well: Chil­dren in Boun­ti­ful, B.C., Jimmy Jones fol­low­ers, res­i­den­tial schools vic­tims and the count­less women who suf­fer in­jus­tices from the misog­y­nist re­li­gious lead­ers.
