  1. I can’t burn in hell for being gay because hell doesn’t exist lol!

    Those who hold positions of authority in any religious organization including pastors, preachers, ministers, priests, rabbis, imams, and any other titles should be barred from running for any public office in our Civil Societies….their views and ideas are often in direct conflict with our civil societies and those views should bar them from such elected offices, or indeed, any offices in a secular culture. BTW, those who judge us and wish for us to burn in hell have condemned themselves to that very fate, since they believe in it. I believe one gets what one believes, and these sorts believe in heaven and hell and are obviously unfit for heaven, leaving them in hell instead…little do they know…..

  3. I think it actually should be anyone that votes for the Wildrose Party will not only spend an eternity in hell but if the WRP get elected, it will be hell on earth in Alberta! GO the New Democrats!

      Second that from Ontario.

        Third that from BC!

  4. The only Hell that exist is living on earth with anti-gay Christian haters. The Christians use this scare tactic they call hell as a way to scare suckers into giving Christians money to stay out of this imaginary place that nobody has ever really seen. This is a 2,000 year old Christian scam to get money off of these suckers and control them to do what they want them to do. These Christians will do anything to keep their scam going.

  5. is the blog got any links to the political party or is it his personal one/church one? She should force him to apologieze rather then her do it (and make it look insincere because christian leaders never admit when they are wrong)

    Unlike US politics, gay issues do not seem to be such a political hot potato in Canada where genuine issues such as the economy, heathcare, education, housing, law and order and transport prevail. Those south of the 49th Parallel, take note!

    1. It is not such a hot potato because equality is already elevated in Canada where the concern about being LGBT is more acceptable and on, not really because other ‘genuine’ issues are of more importance; furthemore, the Canadian people tend to be more reserved and less dramatic. In this case, it is taking place in Alberta, which historically is more religious and thus more homophobic.

      I am Canadian!

  7. *quotes Lumi Bast*

    I totally agree. there’s no god, no heaven, no hell. deal with it.

    and ps. where’s mah apology?

  8. If this woman really is pro-gay as she has stated, then she should dismiss the Allan Hunsperger immediately.

  9. Deemed? Or maybe you mean doomed, Edmund?
