And it's all because of Marci McDonald's book, The Armageddon Factor (which I gotta admit is a cool title.)
Anyway, for the last word on the matter, check out this posting by Paul Tuns, a social conservative/libertarian, who is also one of the smartest guys I know.
Marci McDonald has said she just reports all the facts and letting people decide. That’s what journalists do, after all. But there has been plenty of evidence that many social conservatives either don’t trust Harper, don’t consider him one of their own, or are confused about his views on various moral issues. McDonald could have reported those facts, but doing so would have undermined her thesis that the Prime Minister is the Earthly saviour for Christian fundamentalists looking to recast Canada as a Christian nation welcoming to Jesus when he returns.
