Document the "Defense of Religion Act" atrocities.


We'll be coming back to this later today but, over at the "He-Man Woman Hater's Club," Spanky is getting a little woody over the apparent resurgence of the DoRA. Feel free to document the distortions in both Spanky's piece and in Chris Wattie's abomination of a National Post article.

P.S. Olaf, you might want to sit this one out and just pay attention, so that you actually have a fucking clue before you start espousing really idiotic opinions. Seriously.

How about this poll:

If you work for the government and refuse to do your job, should you be fired?

I think it would be a great defense for liberals to push the idea that clergy shouldn't have government authority to make marriages if they don't want to live by those pesky human rights restrictions the government requires. Simple.

Well, yes, my policies would resurge too, if I was a socon think tank and I sponsored a phone survey that asked questions weighted towards my ideological agenda, ignoring things such as the fact that religious officials are /already/ protected against being forced to legally 'commit' two same sex persons to wedlock inside the bounds of their religious edifices and beliefs.

"I have here in my hand, proof! Proof that Canadians want to revisit this heinous lack of debate so we can think of the children...and protect our vulnerable clergy!"

Chris Wattie's the one who pushed that atrocious "Iran forces Jews to wear badges" story in The National Post. I'm surprised the man still has a job.

I'm not reading The Politic link. Those guys are idiots.
