The Irish priests (or at least some of them) sure realize what a secularist government intrusion means. But what about Canadian clergy?

Any Ontario priest raising his arm in a mock salute and exclaiming "Hail Herr McGuinty"? Any outraged Quebec priest exclaiming "Hail Charest"?
The newsletter, which was in the Church of St Columcille in Togher on Sunday, carried an article about Mr Kenny’s Dáil speech of last week under the headline: “Heil Herr Kenny”.
