The Lunney Affair...The Hypermutable Paranoia Hypothesis.


Never mind the evolution denial business that began on the Twittmachine and ended with Mr. Lunney's resignation from the (not)Tory federal caucus today.

Because what I find much more disturbing is the following, which is from the opening of Mr. Lunney's written statement on the matter:

"Leaders of the faith community were in Ottawa on March 25th to express their alarm at increasing and unprecedented attempts to stifle freedom of religion, conscience and expression in Canada.

They identify deliberate attempts to suppress a Christian world-view from professional and economic opportunity in law, medicine, and academia. I share these concerns. I believe the same is true in the realm of politics at senior levels..."

Sure thing Mr. Tunney.

And just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're actually out to get you.

Not that such a realization would stop you and yours, regardless.

And, no, what happened to Trinity Western was not a stifling of religion....Instead it was a denial of institutional discrimination and enforced bigotry.

With less than 6 months until the federal writ is dropped:

Which CPC looney will replace Lunney?

It's called projection.The unconscious transfer of one's own desires to another person: we protect the self by a number of defense mechanisms including repression and projection. I think he's "evolving" and it scaring him.
