The CCRL is devoted to combating anti-Catholic defamation and to bringing Church teaching to bear on issues of public debate
The CCRL has been working with media to highlight the unacceptable violence against Catholic churches across Canada in July and the lacklustre response from politicians and law enforcement to find and charge perpetrators, deterring further attacks.
We stand with the victims of the residential school program and seek healing and reconciliation, but violence and property destruction does not answer these needs.
The CCRL decries the destruction of these two churches as acts of violence against religion and people of faith.
The state, including Canadian courts, should not become enmeshed in religious, doctrinal, and pastoral disputes. The Supreme Court’s decision clarifies that religious organizations, and similar non-profit or charitable groups, will not be subject to court review, unless underlying legal or contractual rights are involved.
