OTTAWA, Apr 28 ( – Contrary to the liberal media and liberal church leaders’ portrayal of Pope John Paul II as sadly out of touch with ordinary people, Canadians and especially Canadian Catholics overwhelmingly approve of his spiritual leadership.

John Paul, has used every opportunity to emphasize the great need for a return to natural law moral principles as necessary for healthy societies and to safeguard democracy. Despite these politically incorrect views he was given an 84 percent approval rating by Canadian Catholics and a 66 percent approval by Canadians generally according to an Angus Reid Poll reported on by the Catholic News Service yesterday.
