Shock on CBC This Morning

This is not sent for discussion. If you agree, forward it.. If you don't, simply delete it. By me forwarding it, you know how I feel.

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 this 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.
I was asked to send this on if I agreed or delete if I didn't ..
Now it is your turn. 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%?
AMEN!
If you agree, pass this on, if not, simply delete

If you Dont want the word God in the Anthem your NOT a canadian.

Do all of the true CANADIANS a favor and go back to whatever part of the world it is your from and leave CANADA alone.
I'm not a religous freak by any means but i have my beliefs that have been taught to me by other GENERATIONS of CANADIANS.
Whatever your beliefs are is fine by me but please don't try to change whats not yours and hopefully never will be.
Being even more truthful here---Your not welcome.

---- Leave
Thank -you

I know Mark...and I know for him to say what he did he must have a pretty solid belief in "something".

I'm 100% in agreement with you Mark.

If you don't like our country the way it is....get out!

If you are not interested in learning English - start packing.

I hate how we have a Prayer room at work for "others" ..... but we can't say "Merry Christmas" or have a Christmas Party or put up a Christmas Tree...it now has to be a Winterfest or Holiday event.

We can't have a Children's Christmas party never mind have Santa make an appearance. Nooooo - we don't want to offend anyone. Total bullshit.

If you think your customs are better than ours, and our customs "offend you" - get the hell out of Canada. Good riddance.

Bye Bye!!!

I just came across this post and I feel I have to respond even though it may be too late.

My only respond to the topic is "...if you do not want the word GOD in the anthem, then, Do all of the true CANADIANS a favor and go back to whatever part of the world it is you're from and leave CANADA alone."

I am copying this from Val's comment above because she hit the same nail on the head as I did...

"If you don't like our country the way it is....get out!

If you are not interested in learning English - start packing.

I hate how we have a Prayer room at work for "others" ..... but we can't say "Merry Christmas" or have a Christmas Party or put up a Christmas Tree...it now has to be a Winterfest or Holiday event.

Gooood bye.

Like the USA we have been founded by Christian Fathers under God and this is what should remain. God is our Father and he watches over our Country. So God remains in the Anthem and now we just need to get prayer and the national Anthem back in school.

Come on guys! This hoax was done years ago in the USA. It was false. Now they have copied it in Canada with the same statistics almost verbatim. I never trust e-mail forwards without reliable confirmation. The lack of a name, date, or anything else verifiable is a pretty good BS warning. I am amazed at you many people swallow this crap.

The comments on this site are embarrassing for Canadian society. People who hold God as part of their belief system do not have ownership over Canada, or any place for that matter, except perhaps the buildings you call church. I am a Canadian and I come from a lineage of Canadians that have been here for generations. However, as I became more educated the idea of God no longer fits my conceptual model of reality. When I hear the anthem, I find I am singing about a mythical being, this God. Go ahead and believe what you want, but your medieval oppressive behaviour will be called out by more advanced members of society. Enjoy your hating, I'm sure that's taught somewhere in that book of yours...

I fully agree with Mark and Rudy. This blessed country was founded by Christian Fathers on bible principles and has made this country what it is today. Sadly the undesirables who have come into the country who are not happy in their own country or in any other country are destroying this country from the inside out like unwanted cancers. They should go back because nobody asked them to come here. Maybe they should make a colony on the moon and send the whole lot there. Every country that does not believe or honour God is in a mess today. God has given us free choice and the good choices we make are based on bible principles. So God should remain in the Anthem. The bible clearly says "to repent" and we should for all that we have allowed in this blessed country just because we are too scared to offend anyone. We have lost ourselves in the process and need to stand up for our rights before we have none left!
God bless Canada!
