Religion and Politics

Re: Religion’s Fair Game If It Motivates Politics

Lawrence Martin is right: Canadians have every right to know what Stephen Harper’s personal beliefs are, religious or otherwise.

When it comes to making important decisions about issues related to the environment, health, human rights and foreign affairs, the worldview of the people elected to public office to make decisions on our behalf really matters. Particular beliefs shouldn’t be given a free pass just because they are cloaked by the word “religious.”
