MONTREAL -- Pauline Marois has defended a Parti Quebecois candidate who compared baptism and circumcision to rape.

Louise Mailloux, who is running for the PQ in the Montreal riding of Gouin, has also written in the past that a tax on kosher and halal foods helps to fund religious wars.

Mailloux, who is a philosophy professor, made the rape comparison in a 2011 essay on religious neutrality. Mailloux made clear this week that she stands by the statement.

Marois told journalists that Mailloux "is an eloquent writer...I respect her point of view."

"She is a supporter of our charter on religious neutrality and we appreciate her support."

Harvey Levine, the executive director of the Quebec region for B'nai Brith, told QMI Agency that "We find it unfortunate that Pauline Marois, the leader of the Parti Quebecois considers this candidate's writings to be eloquent, and not anti Semitic or racist as indicated in (Mailloux's) writings."

Well, as long as they keep on the same track, should be no problem keeping Quebec in the fold and the "separatists" on the back burner.

The parties are in an election and nothing escapes the pen of the press. Politicians cannot
resist opening their mouths and shoving both feet in. Baptism is done for the parents ease
of thought, the child knows none of its significance. Circumcision is another of those out and
out barbaric religious rituals. Religious rituals and actions have accounted for more bloodshed
in the world in the arena of human history. Religion was supposed to bring peace and comfort
to the grieving instead its brought its share of war hatred and misery not because of believers
but because the spiritual evolution of man has been hijacked by zealots of all stripes.

I guess sprinkles or dunking is compared to water boarding and skin peeling is compared to scalping.
