By Matthew ArchboldSomething tells me if they had a rainbow flag on their shoulder, they wouldn’t be in trouble.
You can speak your truth and your identity as long as that it isn’t the truth found in the Church or the identity of Christ.
Catholic News Agency: The police department in Montreal prohibited its officers from wearing religious symbols at work, especially images of St. Michael the Archangel, state media CBC/Radio-Canada has reported.
The mandate from the City of Montreal Police Service (SPVM) was based on a 2019 law and was a direct response to the uniform worn by officers at protests related to the COP15 international forum held in Montreal Sept. 7.
On that day, many officers were seen on social media wearing badges that read “St. Michael protect us,” in homage to the patron saint of Canadian police.
“After analysis, it was agreed that the crest of St. Michael worn by SPVM (Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal) police officers on their uniform is a religious sign within the meaning of the law,” the memo sent out to officers said.
“Consequently, we ask you now to kindly remove from your uniforms any crest symbolizing or referring to the Archangel St. Michael, in order to comply with the law,” the memo added.
The law on state secularism, known as Law 21, is a regulation that dates from 2019 and that establishes that Quebec Province, where Montreal is located, “is a secular state.”
Despite the challenges filed in court against this law, the Quebec Superior Court upheld it in 2021.
All signs of Christianity must be driven from the public sphere. All. Jesus is the new second hand smoke. Bystanders must be protected from second hand Jesus, lest they be infected.

However, he is Pope, and I pray for him every day.), the legitimacy of the House of Windsor or of the claims of the Elder Line of the House of France, or attacks on the legitimacy of any of the currently ruling Houses of Europe.
