Is it us or are Canadian politicians trying to compete with United States politics when it comes to inappropriate behavior and comments? Manitoba Progressive Conservative Brian Pallister decided he would wish all the Infidels (in this case Atheists) seasons greetings.
We seriously think he was trying to be inclusive. I mean that’s the ticket these days right? We must embrace diversity.
So, with that Spirit in mind, we would like to say happy winter season to all those infidels as well. Here is a shout out to the pagans who will be celebrating the Winter Solstice (enjoy your Yule Feast). Oh heck, Happy Festivus ( may your poles be long and bare)
Press Progress Canada had this to say:
In what may turn out to be the most awkward holiday greeting of 2013, watch Manitoba Progressive Conservative Leader (and former MP) Brian Pallister wish everybody a happy holidays, including “all you infidel atheists out there.”
