Re: "The religious right and Harper" (Opinion, April 28).
What a surprise. Tory- hater Josée Legault is enraptured by Marci McDonald's, factually challenged paranoid delusion, The Armageddon Factor. It seems that religious people need to stay out of the public square because only followers of the secular humanist cult should be listened to.
But religious people have as much right to speak and to lobby the government as anyone else. Perhaps one reason that religious people are more likely to vote Conservative is the disrespect shown them by the Grits, the Dippers, and the Bloc.
To those who wish to silence religious voices, I say, we will not be silenced. We have every right to speak out, and we are certainly not all of one opinion, even on social issues. I, for example, am pro-life, but I don't have any problems with same-sex marriage.
