Kairos is a coalition of Canadian churches that “works to promote human rights, justice and peace, viable human development, and ecological justice”. Oddly enough, it doesn’t seem too interested in human rights in North Korea, China, Saudi Arabia, Iran or Cuba; it does, however, appear to think that Israel is run by devil himself. Kairos is funded by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) which is funded by taxpayers. Kairos’s funding has been cut off.
The puzzle is, why do churches like the Anglican Church and the United Church expect a secular state to fund their pet projects; why don’t they do it themselves?
