Immigration Minister Jason Kenney had some interesting advice for Canadian Bishops last month when asked about equity education and other programs by provincial governments infringing on religious and parental rights.

Speaking to Deborah Gyapong of Canadian Catholic News Kenney said that although he was concerned about the ways “intolerant secularism” can put pressure on parental rights and religious freedom, “we do have a legal framework” for people to defend their rights, the way the Loyola parents did. “It’s up to the bishops, church leaders, to vigorously defend the rights of their communities.”

“People who are concerned about these things need to lawyer up,” he said.
