Lunney didn’t run on fundamentalist religious beliefs

In response to Carol Rae’s recent letter in which she states that MP James Lunney “is a man of his word...,” we must respectfully disagree.

In response to Carol Rae’s recent letter to the editor in which she states that MP James Lunney “is a man of his word who stands up for what he believes in,” we must respectfully disagree.

Lunney was first elected in 2001 and in that time he has rarely spoken about religious issues, never mind making his personal beliefs clear to his constituents.

If he really stood up for what he believes in, he would have run for election as a fundamentalist Christian who believes in creation from day one, rather than hiding in the closet for 14 years and then making the grand announcement when his term is almost up and when he has no intention of standing for re-election.
