Frankly, I am sick and tired of reading about and listening to George McIssac, and his handful of devotees defining the moral standing of individuals of whom he knows nothing, but choses to lambast as being comparable 'moral reprobates' (my words), because of their personal pro-abortion standings. Give them a break George...they are every bit as Christian, moral and discerning in the eyes of God, as I hope you are George....keep an eye on your own soul George, and they'll take care of their, as required. That said, should God be disappointed with these 'spiritual reprobates' as you likely see them, I'm sure He can handle matters Himself. You are still an earthling George, not a successor quite yet. Smell the roses while you can George, let the world continue to turn on God's terms; I think He can handle it. You can find some roses in Bowring Park...smell them George....I bet you'll you'll have a much better day. Invite your friends.

Mr. McIssac lost his "argument" - and his credibility - after the third sentence in the first paragraph. By the time he reaches the end of his letter, he makes the bizarre claim that freedom from religion is eroding freedom of religion, and that indoctrinating children in the Bronze Age mythology of illiterate goatherds is education. Mr. McIssac is seemingly oblivious to the fact that we rid ourselves of our own version of the Taliban centuries ago. If he wishes to live in a country where clerics or religious zealots rule, where women are considered breed cattle and where the rote memorization of religious mythology is considered "education", he might do us the favour of emigrating to Iran or Afghanistan. On the other hand, maybe not, those poor people have enough problems of their own.....

Wouldn't inflicting religious beliefs on people who don't subscribe to them or don't believe in them, be the opposite of freedom? I just don't understand why some people of faith feel like their religion is being taken from them, are people stopping you from going to church, stopping you from praying? That would be taking religious freedom away. The world seems to be coming around to the fact that not everyone believes in god, nor lives their lives according to any scriptures. It seems that the folks that are so upset about this sort of thing, feel like everyone should be following the same religion as them, and feel threatened in some way. This sort of attitude is responsible for a lot of violence and death across the world. We are pretty lucky in these parts to even have the discussion.
