This time in Canada over assisted dying.
If you are terminally ill, Canadian, are unfortunately Catholic and cares about burial rites, then don’t think about assisted dying. Archbishop Terrence Prendergast of Ottawa has said the Church might refuse to conduct a funeral when families strongly support and champion their loved one’s assisted-death decision.
To the bishop, assisted dying is a morally great evil, maybe greater than the wasting disease that makes one consider assisted suicide.
I sympathise with Catholics and those who want religious rites at their funerals.
Maybe they should tell the church to fuck off.
