Religious Freedom Office

It looks like our Canadian government is about to form a new office, Religious Freedom Office:

This has me a little bit confused: if freedom of religion is a human right, which is observed in Canada, why on earth would be need this office here? If this office is planning to intervene and promote Canadian values abroad, don’t we have a plenty of problems in the country including women’s rights, new immigrants issues and healthcare?

I would rather see freedom from religion office, because when religion and politics meet, nothing good happens.  They should be kept well apart. Maybe I should pray for a wise use of budget and taxpayers’ money.

Happy Tuesday :); hope you are as excited about going back to work as I am 🙂
