Petition against Pope John Paul II Day

A bill to declare April 2 as Pope John Paul II Day in Canada - not just in 2014 but every year - has passed the House of Commons and is before the Senate. The reasons given in the bill's text (link below) include that he was "a leading figure in the history of the Roman Catholic Church" and worked to "encourage [youth] to live out the teachings of Christ". A petition against the bill is below.

You can add your name to the petition, but contacting your MP is abetter plan of attack. Send them a note directly because it's important we don't have this as a national day.

It's sad and scary that it could get this far.

We "antifascists" should maybe suggest a positive alternative such as a "Gandhi Day"
