Happy Canada Day Eve, you hellbound Canucks! Did you know that Canada still has blasphemy laws on the books? Indeed, we do. If we go by strictly what’s on the books, blasphemy is punishable by up to two years in prison in our vast nation. Wait, you thought Canada was a modern, secular country? Haha, you silly little hosers.
The last conviction for such an offence was handed down to Reverend Victor Rahard, a member of the Canadian Anglican church, in 1935. Upon the walls of his Montreal Church, this blasphemous reverend hung posters entitled, “Sermon from an old monk.” In his “sermon” posters, he criticized the Roman Church using scripture to back up his opinions.
