Here was an article from a newspaper which took a new survey which suggested that the Kebecois feel an increasing sense of attachment to religion.
Following this was a statement that Marc Cardinal Ouellet of Kebec was a leading contender to become the next pope.
But, as they usually do in Kebecois Catholic circles they left out the reason why he should not become pope. That the Cardinal had failed miserably when he did not defend the rights of English-speaking Catholics, and was openly was siding with his own race, that being Kebecois. If that is the case how can he be a shepherd of all Catholics? Having failed that test Marc Cardinal Ouellet should do what any honest prelate would have done and resigned from the priesthood.
I am totally puzzled by the story of Kateri Tekakwitha the 17th century Algonquin /Iroquois maiden who converted to Catholicism and died near Montreal. St. Kateri Tekakwitha (Lily of the Mohawks) was an American, and not as implied by some that she was a Canadian. So the story really has no bearing on Catholic religion in Kebec at all.
As for the Kebecois religion being Catholic I doubt that very much. These pseudo Kebecois Catholics daubed a Roman Catholic Church in Verdun Kebec with paint, because it served the English-speaking community. So, religion in Kebec is only skin deep and their linguistic hatred overrides all their religious beliefs to the point of insanity. Unless of course this was an attempt buy the Kebecois to create the illusion that Kebec was still Catholic and influence the votes at the VATICAN for one of their Cardinals to become the next POPE.
Je me souviens!
