re: #418 ggt
I agree and think that separation of church and state needs to be maintained (at least here, I have no idea about how it applies in Canada).
But I don’t really see why DF cited it as a failure to assimilate. It should be expected that people of all religions would continue to pray to their deities even after assimilation into a new culture. Unless he was implying that assimilation meant conversion as well.
