Christmas MIA for MIA

We are now in the midst of the most blessed time of the year, Christmas,the celebration of  birth of our Lord Jesus Christ who came from His home in Heaven to this wretched sinful world to give us freedom,save us from our sins and give us eternal life in which no man is able to give.

Our nation was build on Christian principals.  Even The Charter of Rights of Freedoms that Liberals tout all the time, begins with the preamble of the "Supremacy of God"
 Ezra Levant points out the dearLiberal leader Michael Ignatieff's Christmas card is well not a Christmas card. 
Michael Ignatieff’s Christmas card isn’t a Christmas card.
It’s a “holiday” card. It has a Jewish menorah on it, which is great. Fully 1% of Canadians are Jewish and though Hanukkah was three weeks ago, it’s a nice thought.
The card has some snowflakes on it, too, and mittens and a gingerbread man (or a ghost, it’s not clear). Those are symbols of winter. Which is great, because it is winter time.
But there’s not a single Christian symbol on the card, the religion of the majority of Canadians. It’s the faith our Queen Elizabeth is officially the “defender” of, the religion that inspired the names of so many places in this country, from the St. Lawrence Seaway to St. John’s.
As Ezra also points out we have many Christian symbols in the coat of arms in the provinces, our anthem etc.
It is the religion whose cross adorns the coats of arms of almost every province, the religion from whose Bible comes Canada’s motto, “From sea to sea.” Our anthem asks God to keep our land, and the French version says we will “carry the cross.”
Even the Charter of Rights begins with the reminder that neither judges nor politicians are at the apex of Canadian society, but rather both are under the “supremacy of God.”
Also on the Peace Tower on the Parliament Building, you have inscribed from the Psalm 72:8 in the Bible,
"He shall have dominion from sea to sea."
So see you have symbols of Christianity all around you.  Our country is based on Christian principals.  For Michael Ignatieff to ignore that is ignoring what our country was build on.  Most Canadians identify themselves with the Christian faith.  If Ignatieff is trying to win back Christian voters back from the Conservatives ignoring them will not help.

On a side not:e: I would like to take this time to wish everyone a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.  As we do our shopping, baking, visiting friends and family, let us just take the time to reflect on what this time of year is really about.  Jesus is really the reason for the season.
