Conservative MP Chuck Strahl has an excellent post on Christians in office, particularly Conservative Christians.
...a journalistic genuis who was offering analysis on Bill Good's radio show was hyperventilating because Cindy is a Christian, and, well, you know how unfit for office they are. When someone pointed out that she attends the same church as Liberal incumbent Don Bell, there was an unhappy moment of silence. Thankfully he remembered that a Conservative Christian is far more worrisome than a Liberal one, and you could almost hear the sigh of relief over THAT. As one contented caller put it, "my son-in-law is a Christian, and I warn you, they never change their spots."
Too bad, cause what we need in politics is people who deny their faith, or better yet, denounce it. At least for their term of office! That way, we could have only athiests in Parliament, and Svend could lead everyone in a round of "Solidarity Forever" instead of an opening prayer.
And it's too bad there are so many people, whether they admit it or not, that actually feel this way.
