Evangelist takes credit for film crackdown
Christian crusader says he pressured cabinet ministers and PMO officials to deny tax credits to productions deemed too offensive
A well-known evangelical crusader is claiming credit for the federal government's move to deny tax credits to TV and film productions that contain graphic sex and violence or other offensive content.
Charles McVety, president of the Canada Family Action Coalition, said his lobbying efforts included discussions with Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day and Justice Minister Rob Nicholson, and "numerous" meetings with officials in the Prime Minister's Office.
"We're thankful that someone's finally listening," he said yesterday. "It's fitting with conservative values, and I think that's why Canadians voted for a Conservative government."Darned right. And once we stop wasting public money on smut, well, I can think of other utter wastes of the taxpayer's hard-earned dollar.
Time for Canadian Christians to stop being such financial leeches, wouldn't you say?
THE MORALS AND VIRTUES OF CHARLES McVETY: Lest we forget, it was Christian douchebag McVety who was convinced that Canada needs a Ralph Reed. That would be this Ralph Reed, which suggests that Canada needs a Ralph Reed about as much as we need another Charles McVety, which would be about as much as we need an outbreak of genital warts.
P.S. What is it with sleazy conservatives and life insurance policies on other people? Once is a coincidence, but twice? That's a pattern.
