An unReformed, Conservative...
“There's a particular reason why Jesus called men only. It's not that women aren't co-participators. It's because Jesus knew women would naturally follow. Men, on the other hand, had to be called.” - Conservative Candidate David Sweet former President & CEO of Promise Keepers Canada - Rick Mercer's Conservative Cabinet
David Sweet is the Conservative candidate for the riding of Ancaster-Dundas-Flamborough-Westdale near Hamilton. Last time out he won a sharply contested nomination there before the last election; this time, it was by acclamation.
When he sought the nomination the first time, his website underscored his six-year presidency of the Canadian chapter of Promise Keepers. This time, his website says only that he headed a "national non-profit organization." Promise Keepers, a huge and growing movement in the United States, describes its vision "to challenge Canadian men to discover the incredible life quest that God has for them as revealed by Christ and the Holy Scriptures." - from Valley Skeptics
I don't have a problem with the scriptures, just the way some people like to read them. Then again, seperation of church and state eh.
