And the Premier defends it! What does that say about the PQ?
Let me tell you : I know women who have been raped. It’s hell. This PQ candidate is committing the most extreme insult and banalization of women who have been raped. I think she’ll be apologizing publicly before the end of the week.
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 an essay on religious neutrality. It appeared in the book, Laïcité ça s’impose!, that was published in 2011.
Mailloux made clear this week that she stands by the statement.
