He was great imo. Who woulda' guessed?

Now we've got him on tape saying that he gets high with a little help from his friends.

Those caucus meetings will forever take on new meaning in my mind now. Smile

He was actually very good. This performance could go down as the day Stephan Harper became everyman. A turning point when those that thought of him as a stuffed shirt, humourless and arrogant... ...saw him as a real person.

Compare that to IGGY. Let's see what the polls say now.

The more I see him and listen to him the more I thank God he is leading our country! Now here's hoping for a majority in the next election.

Iggy - Elitist stuffy pompous arrogant Canadian born American.
Harper - Economist, Canadian, piano playing, singing, Toronto born, Calgary living, Hockey historian.

So you do not mind having a nutbar as PM? And I quote LD here....entry 65 of the Blasphemy Day thread....

Thanks, Just had a lesson in the Holy Trinity

And having read that entire page, it reaffirms to me that religious people are nutbars.

Yes i can.....would you also like to discuss the church he belongs to? - an American evangelical affair....?

Although not associated with the Reform Party's radical wing, Harper expressed socially conservative views on some issues.[18] In 1994, he opposed plans by federal Justice Minister Allan Rock to introduce spousal benefits for same-sex couples. Citing the recent failure of a similar initiative in Ontario,
he was quoted as saying, "What I hope they learn is not to get into it.
There are more important social and economic issues, not to mention the
unity question."[19] Harper also spoke against the possibility of the Canadian Human Rights Commission or the Supreme Court changing federal policy in these and other matters.[20]


Despite the party's move to the centre, the party began a concerted drive against same-sex marriage.
Harper was criticized by a group of law professors for arguing that the
government could override the provincial court rulings on same-sex
marriage without using the "notwithstanding clause", a provision of Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Harper can believe whatever the hell he wants to as long as he keeps his faith separate from his job as PM.

Well, then you had better be concerned about a whole lot of people in all of Canada's political partys. Many MP's of varying ethnicity vote according to their faith. It is no secret.

Just what is so scary about Christians? Would you rather have Islam and sharia law in Canada? What do you think the punishment for same sex marriage would be? In Saudi Arabia, gay men are beheaded for being gay.

I don't have a problem with Harper's religion. That was no secret when he ran for election. However, I think the US panders to much towards the Christian vote. I guess the trick is finding balance.

Apparently Iggy tried to sing this same song.....except in French.... in Quebec. Apparently it didn't work out as well.

Wikipedia says that 76% of Americans are Christians.

I don't see how someone can keep their beliefs out of what they do?
