Majority of Canada embraces religion

Editor: Re: Robert T. Rock’s letter (The Times, July 15). Does Mr. Rock understand with his incessant rants that he is guilty of bigotry and discrimination himself?

The Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms guarantees freedom of religion and also conscience.

Printing his views abets his ignorance.

The majority of Canadians — 67 per cent — identify as Christians.

Islam has 3.2 per cent, Hinduism 1.5 per cent, Buddhism 1.1 per cent, and Judaism one per cent.

Non-religious are at 23.9 per cent.

It appears Mr. Rock is in the minority, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

That’s his choice.
