    And it means nothing because the Evangelicals are running Canada. In Canada we have the right to religious freedom and to worship who we
    please, even if we believe that the moon is made of blue cheese or that
    there is no God and we’re just an alien experiment. HOWEVER, when you
    mix that religion with politics
    and start making policies based on your religious beliefs, then it
    becomes MY business.

    The Christian Alliance Church, Evangelical Christians, believe that the earth is only 6,500 years old and all scientists are liars.

    They believe that without Israel there can be no Armageddon
    and therefore no Rapture. Therefore Israel must be protected at any

    They do no support abortion or homosexuality and believe that those who aren’t born-again are “lost.”

    WHO is the most PROMINENT member of the Christian Alliance Church in Calgary, Alberta? Canada’s Prime Minster, Stephen Harper.
