So this is what we're getting for our tax dollars. 1400 Harper hacks monitoring a publication by the Mennonites who are less than 1 percent of Canada's population.

Apparently the Harpercons just discovered that Mennonites, unlike the war mongering Vic Toews are pacifists.

"It tells me that I need to be very careful on what I say about government policy and how I say it. That restricts me as a journalist and as a religious commentator."

Hardly. You are free to say anthing you like. You can even silict donations to help pay for it. You just can't issue as tax receipts for said donations. You are just like me and all other commentators here.

truth can't be bought, but lies sure can be sold..

Harper & his neo-cons better put a sock in Pastor Nasty & Father Siddon Mynee & their fetid flocks of religious extremists for supporting right wing so-con politicians and for promoting hatred towards women seeking legal medical procedures.

Including his Conservative MP who saw fit to award Jubilee Medals to criminal crones jailed repeatedly for terrorizing Canadian women.
I love raspberry pie, damn it.

As long as the Conservative’s waste more tax payers dollars buying favour from specific religions, I guess it leaves the Mennonites left with the balls to speak truth to power.

I don't think the Mennonites are ready to "canonize" VicToews, if you'll pardon the expression.

Not only do Harper's evangelical church friends have tax free status but he shovels mega tax dollars at them as well.

As long as religious organizations sing the "right" political hymn, they will have no letters from the CRA warning them about partisan politics while bigwig or is that big wig Steve's in power.

There should be taxes on religious groups anyway.
09:29 PM on 11/09/2012
Can you be more specific?

What kind of taxes, exactly?
10:26 PM on 11/09/2012
To exist, most likely.

If any group is enjoying the benefits of 'feeding @ the government subsidized trough' then they must follow guidelines or forfeit their benefits to enjoy the freedom of speech protected by the Canadian Charter Of Rights and Freedoms. Seems reasonable to me.

So is the Fraser Institute getting these letters??? a right wing charity that espouses many political beliefs, not really even charity worthy IMO since it is a 'think tank'

There is a difference between writing about ones beliefs, in this case pacifism, than saying vote for Joe

I may be a Conservative, but I gotta agree with you on this one.

Non of what they said in their articles appear to be very political to me. They were making comments on things that were already in the open.

I am always surprised when someone is such a strong conservative that they cannot see past their own partisanship to the problem with the event under scrutiny. You should hang out with Harleyopenroad - he gets the problem with this and he didn't have to stop being a conservative to admit it.

I vote NDP.
