I've been thinking a lot about this 'Christian Activist' thing in the Globe. It's carefully worded, but it's a controversial piece because of its subject matter. Religion - politics. It's a tricky subject. I started to feel bad about giving Gloria Galloway a hard time. It might have been poor judgement to offend a whole segment of society, but certainly there couldn't have been a political motivation -- it's not like she's one of those 'Liberal cheerleaders' Harper dislikes so much.
I was doing a search for something else, and I came across this-- I'd forgotten all about it.
Do you remember this from last year:

Liberal MPs shocked by party's election tactic
OTTAWA — . . . (devout) Liberal MPs were horrified to discover their party last month commissioned a pre-election poll asking Ontarians if they'd be more or less likely to vote for the Conservatives if they knew the party had been "taken over by evangelical Christians."
It took an extra year, but they finally managed to get the word out on this. I wonder did they pay Galloway for sniffing out this scoop, or was it on the promise of some future consideration. Senate? Not senate.
Naw, some people don't even need inducement to show lack of principle.
