Homosexual Rainbow Sash Movement Threatens to Disrupt Pentecost Mass, Confront Cardinal George - U.S. News - Catholic Online

Such an act is supposed to be illegal, at least in Ontario. I wonder if 'disrupting a religious service' is an offense in the city that gave John Daley to the nation? If there's anyplace in the US that would invest such powers to the police, it is likely that it would be there.

  1. Pursuant to section 176, subsections 1, 2, and 3 of the Criminal Code, disrupting a religious service is a crime in Canada.

    The kicker is: how does one define "disrupt?"

  2. Have you heard of any plans for this to happen in Canada?

  3. Julie: I have not heard of any such demonstrations in Canada (thank God), but these things seem to follow in trends so I will not be surprised when it does happen here.

    Welcome to the blog!! I hope you'll consider following it on a regular basis.

  4. I will, Fr Tim. My husband and I know your territory pretty well, I was raised in Sudbury, we lived in Ottawa for ten years, and spent many summers in the rural countryside around Algonquin Park. Plus my many years of visiting Madonna House in Combermere, brother lives there, and daughter with family in Barry's Bay.
    So you are like a visit back home.
    I live now in Halifax, but still miss Ontario summers.
