Response to: Russ Hiebert casts opposition coalition as ‘unholy,’ Dec. 5., Peace Arch News
“I believe that upon reflection, many opposition MPs are going to recognize that this unholy alliance with the Bloc is a terrible idea and reject it.” ~ Russ Hiebert
Russ Hiebert’s continual wayward use of religious dogma is more than amusing. Did Russ mean that it was ‘unholy’ because it was the democratic process in action and we ought to just let the PM dictate what will happen within a minority government, with no input from the other 165 seats representing ALL of Canada? We all know that the HOLY way is so much better, such as demonstrated by the Holy Wars and the slaughtering of millions of people due to religious differences, occurring over many centuries, and up to, and including the present day. I, for one, am sick and tired of the right wing conservative religiose ‘holier than thou’ approach to politics. Please keep your religion – whatever it may be – out of my government.
“Religion is a byproduct of fear. For much of human history, it may have been a necessary evil, but why was it more evil than necessary? Isn’t killing people in the name of God a pretty good definition of insanity?” [Arthur C. Clarke]
