June Event – The Intersection of Faith and Politics with Jason Kenney


This month’s Catholic Men’s Night will be held on Thursday, June 22nd. We are blessed to have Mr. Jason Kenney, leader of the Alberta P.C. party speaking to us on the topic: The Intersection of Faith and Politics.

It is with great excitement that we announce our June 22nd Catholic Men’s Night speaker: Mr. Jason Kenney.  For his presentation, Mr. Kenny will be talking to us, not just as the leader of the Progressive Conservative Party of Alberta, but as a fellow Catholic man.  His topic is titled: The Intersection of Faith and Politics.

The following points outline some reasons why we think he is a politician worth hearing:

  • A “green light” from Campaign Life Coalition for his “perfect track record” of voting on pro-life and pro-family legislation during his years in federal parliament.
  • Last year, in response to the Minister of Education’s decisions in education, Kenny said, “You know what that means for these ideologues.  …It means social engineering and pedagogical fads in our schools.”
  • In an interview with CTV news in 2005, Kenny was asked about his traditional views on marriage.  His response was, “Marriage — in the eyes of those of us who support traditional marriage — is, by its nature, a heterosexual institution that requires the complementarity of the sexes. Virtually every minority ethnic or religious group in Canada has deeply set tradition with respect to family and marriage.”
