Padres and the Past: Livestream on CAF Chaplains with Barry W. Bussey


On Tuesday, May 10, Barry W. Bussey offered his commentary on the topic of chaplains in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF). Recently, an advisory panel declared that, since mainstream religions have (in their view), “sexism, misogyny and discrimination woven into [their] philosophies,” chaplains from these apparently non-inclusive faiths should be prohibited from serving in the military, regardless of their personal beliefs or treatment of others.

In this livestream video, Barry puts the panel’s report in the context of a growing animosity toward religion in our society, which has been demonstrated through a variety of cases and policies. He shares some of his personal background growing up in Newfoundland, and notes the importance of understanding our history in order to appreciate who we are in the present.
