Quebec debates another bill about religious clothing in the public sphere

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

Currently the Quebec Legislative Assembly is kicking around Bill 62, which seems to be about state secularism, but doesn't actually mention secularism once, only "State religious neutrality".

The exact title of Bill 62:

"An Act to foster adherence to State religious neutrality and, in particular, to provide a framework for religious accommodation requests in certain bodies"

The woman who was arguing with the reasoning of cultural Marxism is the Quebec minister of justice, who is supporting Bill 62.

From the Catholic Diocese of Montreal::

The bill was tabled in June 2015. Its exact title - An Act to foster adherence to State religious neutrality and, in particular, to provide a framework for religious accommodation requests in certain bodies - already indicated the intended approach of the Liberal government under Philippe Couillard. The Minister then explained that Bill 62 "provides that personnel members of public bodies must demonstrate religious neutrality in the exercise of their functions, being careful to neither favour nor hinder a person because of the person's religious affiliation or non-affiliation."

On the surface, the bill appears to set reasonable boundaries: most Islamic dress will be permitted in the public space, but not face coverings such as burqas or the more conservative Yemeni style face veils. 

However, critics of the bill say it is a threat to the secular nature of Quebec, and a slippery slope to Islamic primacy, even going as far as to say that Bill 61 is a victory for Islamists.

I’m surprised Quebec has not found another way of addressing this.
They tried to throw Christians under the bus by making this bill a religious thing, when it is a clash of cultures happening already in Quebec.
Boy, if Quebec, the cry baby of Canada who takes a tantrum when they can’t get their way, is having problems eliminating this, the rest of Canada will succumb to it too.

I find it so very disturbing and frustrating the burka and hijab are being considered mandatory religious requirements; they are cultural choices.
This is what makes it bad for other religions, eg. Catholic crucifixes and crosses. These too are not mandatory requirements, they are choices also.

You are correct, Lloyd Nolan. My data isn’t composed of just attacks on non-Muslims. The Koran contains at least 109 verses that call Muslims to fight the with nonbelievers in order that Islam may dominate the world. Some of the verses are quite graphic, with commands to chop off heads and fingers and kill infidels wherever they may be hiding. Muslims who do not join the fight are called ‘hypocrites’ and warned that Allah will send them to Hell if they don’t join the fight. Since Sunnis, Shi’as and Karijites are the dominant sects within Islam, and each sect considers the others as apostates from the true faith, and since the Koran teaches that peaceful Muslims are hypocrites, they don’t just kill Christians, they kill everybody that doesn’t think exactly like them. Hence, they kill each other. It is truly a Satanic cult, and its growing exponentially, not merely by conversions as people convert just to avoid being killed, but by the fact that they are having babies at a rate three times that of western civilization.

Islam is the problem – this according to Islam’s own published works.
Moslems are the enemy – If they haven’t already admitting to wanting to take over the world and forcibly convert everyone to their death cult as every good Moslem is expected to do – then they’re lying, it’s called TAQIYYA which is part of JIHAD!
Ban Islam and contain it in a few Middle Eastern countries.
Deport all Moslems there.
Seize the property and tear down every single Mosque in this country.
Burn all Korans and other death cult writings.
Eradicate the filthy presence of Islam and its degenerate and savage adherents from this country.
Then go after the enabler/traitors who aided and abetted this Islamic invasion…
Once you have the will to act, the solution is very simple.

MAURICE , I record your speedometer readings on one of my calanders at beginning of every month, then I do the math, then I conclude that about or over half of the content on the REBEL is related to your speedometer readings , I also conclude that the people that are run down and kill by the islamomobile are their own people

Hope all who voted for the liberals just to get rid of the stink of Harper are happy.

We now have a Government that does not care about the wishes of its people, we are having the Islamic idealism thrust upon us and we have no choice now, it will be a constant slap in the face in the dark, no idea where it is coming from until it is too late, because the press is owned by the Government.

At least they can actually still talk and debate about it. I just read on Jihad Watch that our Muslim friendly government just passed a bill to outlaw islamaphobia. I must have been snoozing because I didnt know it was even on the table. Where’s the media? This happened Oct.26. Did the rebel report this? Are we all going to jail now?

Can’t believe that woman in the white jacket agrees with this stone age insanity.

Impose the law already & stop these never ending debates about Muslim demands which seem to be ongoing in the last few years. Enough is enough. The women who wear these body bags are submitting to what their husband is forcing on them, does any female seriously want to be entrenched in this clothing when it’s 80 in the shade, come on!!

The hijab, maybe not as much, but the burka & the niqab should be banned, period. I have read & heard over & over again that this is not part of their religion. This is also a matter of security. Would you feel safe in a bank, restaurant, theatre, etc if someone walked in with this attire, if you are truthful, you will not. This is Canada, not Saudi Arabia, or Afghanistan, etc so you live here & these are our laws, just like we would have to adhere to yours if we lived there. Don’t like it, why did you move here, go back where you came from then. It’s time political correctness took a back seat & common sense prevails. You start allowing this crap & pretty soon we have sharia law. Wake up all you bleeding hearts out there.
