MP should defend humanity, not his religion

How arrogant are all those who think that God needs their defence? To stand for humanity takes courage.

To the Editor,

Re: Lunney’s Christian stand ‘courageous,’ Letters, April 14.

How arrogant are all those who think that God needs their defence?

To stand for humanity takes courage. To be compassionate for people’s suffering and voice outrage for all wrongs being done is courageous. To stand with the oppressed, poor, or discriminated against the forces of injustice is courageous. Courageous and Christian.

Since Constantine the Great, the Crusades, Henry the Eighth, the Reformation until present, time and time again, politicians have resurrected religious devotion when and if it suits them. Like loons they are screeching about faith while sleepwalking nations into a disaster. The Third World War is in the making and will put a stop to any discussions about evolution and religion. Unless we all together try to stop our brave leaders, they are going to lead us into barbarism and destruction.

It takes a lot of courage to see this, stop denying it and to speak up. Let’s see if now-independent Lunney will gather enough courage to vote against secret police Bill C-51 and the Conservative party war machine.
