Rabidly pro-abortion and pro-LGBT Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau — a self-professed Catholic — says the ALPHA Program helped him "refound ... a deep faith and belief in God."
In the interview, published in 2014 in the Ottawa Citizen, Trudeau spoke of how he was raised a devout Catholic, going to Mass and reading the Bible every Sunday and praying as a family each night.
He said it all changed when he turned 18 years old and thought the Church, formality and structure of Catholicism had nothing to do with the realities of his life. From then on he only went to Mass occasionally on Christmas and Easter.
When his brother Michel died in a skiing accident in 1998, Trudeau says he re-evaluated his beliefs after taking the ALPHA course. "I still consider myself and have re-found myself of a deep faith and belief in God. But obviously very aware of the separation of church and state in my political thinking."
The ALPHA Program is seeing extensive use in many U.S. Catholic parishes and is being increasingly incorporated into diocesan religious education programs. The problem is ALPHA was created by a Protestant and directed mainly towards Protestants.
Since Trudeau refound his "deep faith and belief in God" through the ALPHA Program, he's been the most pro-abortion prime minister Canada has ever seen, proudly calling himself a "feminist." He has even said he'd block any nomination to the Liberal Party if a candidate doesn't agree to vote for abortion or support abortion laws. As a side note, of the 87 bishops in Canada at the time, only six publicly rebuked him for his actions.
He's also the first Canadian prime minister to march in Toronto's gay Pride parade, although it's not the first time he's attended it. He recently introduced a bill to advance the transgender agenda in the country.
While Trudeau claims he has a "deep faith and belief in God," he is far from being the Catholic he maintains he is.
