Cafe Inquiry: Public Funding of Religious Groups
06 Jun, 2009
Our second Café Inquiry of the summer will focus on the surprising discovery by our political committee regarding how much tax payer funds go to religious organizations. Religious organizations receive charity status simply for advancing their worldview, so long as it contains a theistic component. Arguing for this will be the famous MPP from Parkdale-Highpark and United Church Minister Cheri DiNovo . Arguing against will be Greg Oliver, Vice President of the Canadian Secular Alliance . Should public funding go to religious communities? What of the non-religious and atheist communities?
