Charles Mcvety President, Canada Christian College and the Canada Family Action Coalition is probably best known for cyber-squatting on pro gay marriage Liberal MPs names and re-directing them to his own rabidly anti-gay marriage site.
He was vocally disappointed with Harper's hands off policy on gay marriage but it appears the boys have kissed and made up as he is now acting as point man defending the government's decision to tear up the Federal/Provincial deal on childcare.
Mcvety's position seems fairly simple, expanded daycare would give more women the opportunity to enter or re-enter the workforce. Women in workforce bad.
This combined with a visceral aversion to the public sector and the sincere belief that the government wants to somehow indoctrinate their children in soviet style institutional daycare.
Conservative Christians have always been part of the public dialogue on political and social issues in Canada and fair enough. Being an engaged citizen isn't just for liberals. But Mcvety represents a very new, very American style strain of right wing Evangelical Christianity that we haven't really seen in Canada before. He hangs out with people like Falwell and Ralph Reed and has been heavily funded by far right evangelical groups like Focus on the Family.
He spouts the same victim message as the American Christian Right about Christianity and Christians being under attack. His examples invariably involve Christians being made to stop attacking someone else.
"The term marriage is a Judeo Christian term that comes from the bible and to do this, desecrates it in a way that is outrageous." - Charles Mcvety, June 2003
This would seem to indicate that he believes that no other religious tradition has marriage - not real marriage anyway. How enlightened.
