Liberal MP Justin Trudeau says he is upset and offended by a Tory MP who publicly questioned his adherence to the Catholic faith and his suitability to speak to students at a Catholic school.
Dean Del Mastro, the parliamentary secretary to the Prime Minister, said on Facebook last month that it was “outrageous” the Catholic school board in Peterborough, Ont. had invited Trudeau to speak for a second time in three years.
And what is really rich is that Del Mastro is not just tasteless, classless, and crass, he's a flaming hypocrite. (Yeah, I know, you're gob-smacked.)
Two years ago, Deanie got smacked down by a top honcho in the Catholic church. Thus:
A Roman Catholic in “good standing” must attend mass every Sunday and holy day of obligation, says the vicar general of the Diocese of Peterborough.
“There is nothing to stop a Catholic person from attending services elsewhere if he or she chooses to do so. However, Catholics are still required to attend Catholic mass every Sunday and holy day of obligation,” said Father Raymond Rick.
“You’re either a Catholic who is practising his faith or you’re not.”
Seems that while Deanie likes to parade his Italian Catholic heritage and play kneesies with Pope Maledict, he's a not very closeted fundy.
Del Mastro told The Examiner he’s been confirmed, and got married, in a Catholic church, but now attends Calvary Pentecostal Church. He said he attends Catholic mass “from time to time.”
“I bear no ill will to anyone at the Catholic Church,” Del Mastro said.
Yeah. Except Justin Trudeau.
Like I said: Asshat.
