Justin Trudeau praises Pope John Paul II -- whose pro-life views would get him kicked out of the Liberal caucus

Brian LilleyArchive

Justin Trudeau pandered to Catholic voters this morning by sending out a message marking "Pope John Paul II Day."

While it isn't widely celebrated, April 2 was indeed set aside by the House of Commons years ago to honour the late pontiff (who is now a saint.)

However, Trudeau's statement is laughable.

For one thing, given the Pope's pro-life beliefs, he wouldn't be allowed in the Liberal Party caucus if he were alive today.

As well, Trudeau has previously called the teachings of the Catholic Church (which he claims to belong to) "repugnant" and "repulsive."

All political parties play the identity politics game.

But isn't it particularly disturbing when it's done in the name of a principled man like Pope John Paul II?

That is actually one of his better ones.
Still can’t believe that stocky, buff Braseau couldn’t whoop Trudeau’s skinny little ass. Has nothing to do with his political prowess though.

trudeau just had another adolescent, whip out the cf-18 moment…..“i had difficulty finding a conservative to step into the ring with me and punch me in the face”…really? how immature does he get?..

I’m not buying it Zarnif.
You protest too much.
If you detest fundamentalism in all its forms you wouldn’t have shot back that way or weighed in on the side of Iran, in another post.
I didn’t call you a Muslim either, although I suspect that you are, and not of the moderate persuasion. I did however say that your vitriol didn’t help the cause of moderate Muslims who want to live peacefully in Canada. And in this post you declare your allegiance to Hamas, because you are saying Israel defending itself is guilty of crimes to humanity. Shame on YOU. You should be ashamed and hang your head. You are trying to guilt us and intimidate us. You are darn right I stand with Israel.
Ezra’s problems are in part why this site exists in the first place. There is a large population in Canada, the majority I would hazard to guess, who are starting to speak up and push back against those who would try to intimidate us, bring their hatred to our country and expect us to thank them for it.

Zarnif , when did you hear last time that a Christian Fundamentalist stoned a woman to death, burned a man in a cage , donned on a suicide vest and blew up a church or issued a fatwa to kill a writer. If you can give us a few examples of the above then I may be converted to you views. I still think you are a Muslim or , at least, ardent sympathizer of Islam. You do not have to be a religious type to be an Islam sympathizer because Islam is not just religion it is IDEOLOGY. Lots of left-wing nuts like that ideology since it assure complete control over the believers. It operates on intimidation, extortion , subjugation and , most importantly, on devoiding their followers from critical thinking and analytical reasoning. Before Mohammed, Arabs had many achievements in mathematics , astronomy , medicine etc. After that evil man started his cult- not so much. I challenge you to name one Muslim contributor to human civilization that his name is widely known such as ,for example, Newton, Copernicus, Rembrandt , Tolstoy, Mari Curie etc. In 1400 years over one billion people have done a very little contribution to science, arts, literature etc. Do you know that just in one year more books are translated in Spain and France than in all Muslim countries in 1000 years? That’s tell you all you need to know.
commented 2015-04-03 19:06:50 -0400
I’ve never called you a Muslim either. I wouldn’t insult true Muslims by lumping you with them. You spout nothing but anti-freedom propaganda, and all your “shaming” and negative, hateful rhetoric is getting really tiring. But you DID say one complimentary thing…

You compared us to Ezra. I for one thank you.
commented 2015-04-03 18:57:02 -0400
Oh gee, Zarnif JoJoa, now I feel just awful, I must hang my head in shame at how horribly we have all mistreated you. Actually, I never called you a Muslim, I just called you a nincompoop. So we’re good, right?
commented 2015-04-03 18:35:33 -0400
It is absolutely ignorant and appalling for all of you to immediately assume that I am a Muslim. It just shows how xenophobic all of you really are. I say, “SHHHHAMMMME”.
commented 2015-04-03 18:33:21 -0400
To Dale Warren and everyone here who thinks I’m a Muslim: I AM NOT A MUSLIM. I am an atheist. I despise Islamic Fundamentalism in all of its forms (Sunni/Wahhabism – ISIS, Saudi Arabia, Boko Haram, etc. and Shia Islam in Iran). I oppose all forms of religious fundamentalism. And guys….. you know that Christian Fundamentalism is a huge problem in the US and in other parts of the world…. but Rebel Media would NEVER even discuss or address those phenomena.

Ezra Levant is a hateful, fear-mongering Islamaphob. No questions asked. Do you know how much trouble he has gotten into in the past for making racist and derogatory remarks when he was on Sun News. There are so many different instances.

I do not know any of you personally, but for you to support this hateful Zionist who supports the crimes against humanity committed by Israel and who takes any opportunity to demonize and insult Muslims as a whole, I can only assume that you are no different from Ezra Levant.

Now that, is well said Nicole.

Thank you very much ZJ for exposing why we have to be more selective when assessing applicants breaking down doors to get into Canada. I showed your poorly written rant to Nader, a practicing Muslim friend of mine, and he bemoaned your type for the damage you cause peaceful, democratic and loyal-to-Canada immigrants. I have to agree. Do us all a favour and don’t confuse the issues. And if you are not interested in doing “us” a favour, then do one for your fellow Muslims, and don’t write on a site like this one, don’t even WATCH it, where the videos and opinions that are presented, are untainted by the mortal disease of sameness, as is found on the liberal socialist programs who present pablum just so as to ensure that sponsors have an audience of followers who will buy their products. Better yet, go back to where you blend in, with others who urinate on and throw shoes at people who have views that don’t match yours.

I think that Zarnif is an alias. Zarnif’s real name is Justin. Thank You, Justin for exposing Islam for what it is. How did you find the time? your local Mosque closed?
commented 2015-04-03 16:23:28 -0400
Boy blunder is at it again, if his right foot is not in his mouth, it’s his left hand and the more he expresses his personal opinions, the more horrified I am that liberals still want this puppet as PM!
As for the post by our friend Zarnif, i also have to ponder why the hell are you spending your precious time in websites that are so evil to your believes? No more goats in your cave? No more women to stone? Go pray for your own ….leave us " rebels" alone, please!

Thanks for that, Wit Zalewski. You just made my day.

A teacher asked her 6th grade class how many of them were Trudeau fans.
Not really knowing what a Trudeau fan is, but wanting to be liked by the teacher all the kids raised their hands except for little Johnny.
The Teacher asked little Johnny why he has decided to be different…again!
Little Johnny said “Because I’m not a Trudeau Fan”
The Teacher asked “Why aren’t you a fan of Trudeau”
Johnny said “Because I’m a conservative”.
The teacher asked him why he’s a conservative.
Little Johnny answered, “Well my Mom’s a Conservative and my Dad’s a Conservative, so I’m a Conservative”.
Annoyed by this answer, the teacher asked, “If your mom was a moron and your dad was an idiot what would that make you?”

With a big smile Little Johnny replied, “That would make me a Trudeau Fan.”

Correction of one sentence in my post :
“When one section of society has a secret agenda to infiltrate and eventually take over another section of society, are we not suppose to protect ourselves and generations to come who will inherit what is to come.
Again if we had the ability to edit or delete it would be nice,one cannot correct any mistakes once posted

ZARNIF My My such hate spewing forth and you accuse me of hate
I agree with you most Muslims are very nice people, i watched a program on CNN about the chap there who travels around the world showing different nations and how they live. He went to Iran and the people there were very nice and welcoming, i was actually surprised.
I take my cleaning to a Muslim dry cleaner, i buy items from a Muslim variety shop, very nice people
I have nothing against Muslims and i am not spreading any hate, just facts
But answer me this. what was inaccurate about what i stated. You know that is Sharia or Islamic law,( Muslims should engage in Taqiyya and lie to non-Muslims to advance Islam) that is from Sharia Law
if you get angry with me you are getting angry at Sharia law, or are you upset when someone actually exposes it .
Why do you try to silence anyone who speaks of all things Islam, i am not criticizing it, just stating the facts, facts that we need to know if we are being deceived, that is for our own protection, The Quran does not allow criticism of Islam, but one can talk about it, it is not against the Quran to discuss it
When one section of society has a secret agenda to infiltrate and eventually take over that society, are we not suppose to protect ourselves and generations to come who will inherit what is to come.
No you are wrong, i do not hate Muslims, i have great respect for the majority of Muslims, i have nothing against Christians ,Catholics, Jews, Hindus or any other peaceful religion.
If you call Islam a religion of peace, well you know that is not true, if you are a Muslim you know that is not true.
I am just concerned about future generations
commented 2015-04-03 13:38:43 -0400
Zarniff, phobia is an irrational fear of something. There is nothing irrational to fear Islam. Your religion is a retarded , regressive , primitive cult which never evolved from 7 century. It is a danger to humanity as much as Nazism an Communism had been. If you do some research you will learn that the followers of your cult murdered over 100 millions of people over the 1400 years. The cult keeps murdering. Yes, I am an Islamophobe and I have a good reason to be.
commented 2015-04-03 13:26:29 -0400
Well Zarnif, if you proclaim to be against The Rebel, I have to ask myself why you even bother posting or visiting the website at all? Is it possible you are a closet Rebel? Or is it much more the fact you just want to stir up dissent? Your rhetoric is virtually the same each and every post as well. My guess would be that you are just a hateful, disrespectful unenlightened slave of your own self-ignorance and loathing. I really have to say that I have a great amount of pity for you. But it’s not your fault entirely. You were most likely brainwashed into thinking this way. You’re sick and need help. I understand. :-P
commented 2015-04-03 13:19:38 -0400
Hey Zarnif you really need to get a new rant your posts a starting get quite repetitive. I think hoggi needs a puppy
commented 2015-04-03 12:41:05 -0400
Zarnif . . . one more thing . . . Are you lyin to the Infadels . . . or do you really feel that upset?
Perhaps if you left your medieval cult mentality long enough to understand why the West has had so much success and you are still stuck in the dark ages you would start to see the light.
Every life has value . . . every life is equal . . . but you obviously do not agree. That is why your group still practice Dhimitude and Slavery in some parts of the world. That is why some of your fellow travellers inflict violence on their fellow countrymen. 98 out of 100 attrosities in the world today are inflicted by followers of your faith.
Perhaps it is time you took a hard look at reality . . . Truth is hard to find . . . but there is only ONE set of Facts and Only ONE Truth. I even know his name . . .

Difficult to belief this latest B.S. from the go to guy for hair products when his top advisor Omar Alghabra is an Islamist with ties to CAIR, an outspoken advocate of Sharia law and Pro-Hamas.

Zarnif . . . if it was not for your “Fellow Travellers” the world would be a much safer place.
Look around the world man . . . leftist/socialist states are failing misserably, izzzlamic bastions of failure are everywhere . . . and you want to criticize Conservatives?
That is just insane Zarn . . .
commented 2015-04-03 11:25:57 -0400
Zarnif, can you help people understand your point of view then?

To Al Rose: You really hate Muslims don’t you. You are islamophobic, hateful and ignorant just like everyone else who supports Rebel Media. How about you meet some Muslims? They are very nice and caring people. Much better than the far-right wing evil white trash on this website.

What is this garabage? Rebel Media? Are you kidding me? There is nothing rebellious about this garbage. It is quite the contrary. How about conservative bs** media, corporate paid and bought out media or disinfo crap media. Those names seem more applicable.

How many times has Ezra gotten into trouble spreading misinformation or making racist, derogatory comments before Sun News crashed? Too many to count.

This website is an infestation of islamophobic, Zionist, racist, homophobic, reactionary idiots. All of you are hateful bigots. You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Put your heads down in shame. All of you right wing lunatics are the reason why good and compassionate people in this world can’t have nice things.

All of you are cancerous and parasitic to humanity.

Actually we are witnessing how truly naive Trudeau really is, he has a Muslim right hand man advisor, this Muslim advisor wanted Sharia in Quebec and voted for that , fortunately it was voted down, but that gives us some insight into the person who is advising Trudeau on all matters regarding Islam and Muslims.
Now anyone who know anything about Islam and the Quran knows this.
Muslims are allowed to deceive non Muslims if it helps Islam,for non Muslims this principle called Taqiyya is another surprising concept of Islam,While most other religions speak highly of truthfulness , the Quran instructs Muslims to lie to non Muslims
about their beliefs and political ambitions to protect and spread Islam.
All non Muslims living in non Islamic states are therefor enemies so deceiving westerners is totally acceptable even encouraged if it can forward the goals of the spread of Islam.
Is Trudeau really that gullible, that he is being told the truth and nothing but the truth in all the Mosques he visits, some being known terrorist recruiting Mosques, some preaching hate as exposed by Ezra, and also shown these, Imams preaching hate on video in their own words
Harper understand all this, Trudeau is a babe in the woods, as the Leader of Canada he will just be a puppet whose strings will be manipulated by others. Step 9 of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Manifesto Called THE PROJECT states

9. Develop a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world;
Step 4
4. Use deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions,
Step 5
5. Avoid social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist powerbase in the West
Step 13
13. Instrumentally use existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam;

Every time Baby Trudeau sees a mosque, he has to stop and visit. Exactly what he claims he does. And when inside, he joins in prayer and recites “The Prayer of Conversion”. So technically he no longer is a Catholic (or Christian for that matter) and is now a Muslim.

Of course, as he always tries, he will attempt to square the circle with his confused, over dramatic, bafflegab that passes for intelligent discourse.

He visits synagogues and churches for fundraising, and I question the rationalism of the people who donate to his – for lack of a better word – cause. He must be sore from all the fence sitting he does.

How did he ever graduate from McGill? Must have something to do with the family name I guess.

He doesn’t realize he is contradicting himself, and rather amusing, he doesn’t understand the majority of the Canadian people can see through him like window glass. Take pity on the boy.

The only way for Justin Trudeau to hear us, is to write to him. So, I sent him this letter:

Dear Justin Trudeau
If you were standing face to face with St. John Paul II, what would you say to him how you value the Catholic Church and the Church teachings in comparison to your personal and party’s pro-choice position? Would you reiterate your statement that the Catholic Church teachings are repugnant and repulsive and have no place in Canadian society? Would you reject him on his pro-life position on abortion and euthanasia, yet you encourage Canadians to live according to the same values that were championed by him?

Your statement is beyond hypocrisy and is extremely disrespectful and insulting toward Catholics and Christians of all denominations. It is amazing how you, and your fellow Liberals, have the audacity to send out a press release like this.

As a Catholic, I am highly offended by your attempt to market Catholics for their votes with this hypocritical comparison of the Liberal Party with St. John Paul II’s values.

If you were Catholic, as you claim to be, you would be attending Holy Week/Easter vigil, especially the sacrament of Reconciliation. Otherwise, be up front with Canadians that you were raised Catholic but do not practice it and do not have any particular respect for Catholic teachings.

I am afraid if you were facing St. John Paul II, your words would not be representative of Canadians who ‘already’ live the values he spent his life defending.
commented 2015-04-02 22:00:43 -0400
The man is truly embarrassing. He seems to believe he’s a deep thinker of some stripe?

However, should he be voted in then perhaps the adage “you get the government you deserve” is indeed relevant……
