According to the CBC's Political Bytes blog, Conservative MP Bev Shipley has been distributing the following bookmark in his riding. This one was left for congregants in the back of a church hall. (h/t)
Political Bytes notes:
More investigative-minded readers may find it interesting to read the entire biblical chapter quoted here. First Timothy 2 goes on to ask that the "woman learn in silence with all subjection," and not "to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence."
One presumes these verses do not reflect the position of the Conservative Party on the role of women in Canadian society.
Actually, I'm impressed Bev asked that Stephane Dion be included in his prayers. Now if Bev and his colleagues could just apply some of that scriptural foundation to their attack-ridden Web site, and turn the other cheek instead of launching partisan lawsuits to silence opposition and free speech, then we'd be getting somewhere.
