I am not a member of the Canadian Missionary Alliance and I havenâ€™t made up my mind who I am going to vote for in the election but I found this article in the Vancouver Sun about Harperâ€™s evangelical faith a little over the top.
I am not sure how this is any different than in the 60s where John F. Kennedy was labeled an â€œagent of the Popeâ€ because he was Roman Catholic.
The images used in the article show the bias as does the author ripping on Harperâ€™s church for not having crosses at the front. I guess this begs the question, â€œhow many crosses does a church need for it to be adequately Prime Ministerial?â€ It goes on to insinuate that most of itâ€™s members support Harper. Well the church is in Calgary, Alberta, he is their local MP, and attends the church. If they hated him, that would be a news story.
I know the story was posted on a blog but it is a blog that belongs to the Vancouver Sun, written by a beat writer that is employed by them. Maybe having an editor take a look over those things might be a good idea.
