A word from Stephen Harper’s God

He isn’t that wild about anyone in the Third World who may need an abortion. Or seafaring Tamils.

“I don’t speak very often about my own religion, but let me be very clear: My God and my Christ is a tolerant God, and that’s what we want to see in this world.” — Stephen Harper

Don’t get me wrong: My God doesn’t want homosexuals to be able to get married. He’s not that tolerant a God. I mean, try to find one who is, am I right? Ha ha. But up to a point that serves my own narrow purposes and blinkered world view, my God and my Christ is a tolerant God. Oh, He also isn’t that wild about anyone in the Third World who may need an abortion. Or seafaring Tamils. My God is not tolerant of seafaring Tamils. You know what: this is getting complicated. Would it help if I made you all a list?
