Dr Pipes:

The kind of world that CanadianChris speaks of already exists - it is called Canada.

Religion, particularly Christianity has been completely stripped of its political power and influence and has been completely removed from the public scene. Church attendance is in free fall. Many of the churches built in Montreal in the 18th and 19th century are conversation pieces. People overwhelmingly reject the view's of the church; so many young people live together and have had illegitimate children that the Federal Govt and Provincial Govt have made a category for them for tax purposes.

And like leftie Europe, the vast majority of Canadians support the Palestinians ( but run to a Jewish Hospital when they want to see a doctor; mainly in Toronto and Montreal). Like leftie Europe the intellectuals and radio show personalities are anti US and are very tolerant to the concerns of Muslims.

Talk show host from across the country are steadfast in their view that being islamophobic is as bad as being anti-semetic. They will not even say the "M" word on the air.

Recently a CBC poll of Muslims found that 12% support the use of terror to support their goals. THe results were quickly removed from their website after one day.

True many streets and towns are named after various Saints ( St Denis, Ste Agathe, St Jerome, etc..) but I seriously doubt that many people even have a clue who these people were.

CanadianChris does not tell us how we are to further strip religion from having any power, namely islam which is encroaching little by little very slowly into our lives. Hijabs are fairly common to see in parts of Montreal in the summertime.
