20 Shout AMEN!Amen ~ 17 PrayingPraying

Member Comments:
I bet the response came as a big surprise to CBC to the question :

Do you believe that the word God should stay in Canadian culture?

CBC yesterday morning had a poll on this question. They had the highest number of responses that they have ever had for one of their polls, and the percentage was the same as this:  86% to keep the words "God Keep our Land" in the National Anthem 14% against.  That is a pretty 'commanding' public response.
It is said that 86% of Canadians believe the word "God" should stay, therefore, I have a very hard time understanding why there is such a mess about having the word "God" in the anthem! Why is the country catering to this 14%?

Really believe this is a tempest in a teapot Kari.  I have never seen such national pride in Canada in my long life.  Don`t know why they are bringing Harper into the mix as he is a strong Christian.  Maybe we could chaulk it up to the fact that an election seems to be on the horizon.

National pride is seen in the crowds with Canadian flags lining every overpass of the freeways as another soldier is brought home from war.  And again at hockey games where strong male voices loudly sing out "God keep our land".  Brings tears to my eyes every time.  Are we at long last realizing how God has truly blessed Canada.  I can only pray it`s true.
