The next Saskatoon Freethinkers meetup is September 19.

WhatTheo-Conservativism and the Canadian Religious Right

When: Sunday, September 19, 2010 11:30 AM

Where: Venice House
906 Central Avenue
Saskatoon, SK S7N 2G8
306-373-6666

Earlier this summer, Random House Canada published Marci MacDonald’s The Armageddon Factor: The Rise of Christian Nationalism in Canada, which documents the role of Conservative Christianity in Canadian politics, with special attention to PM Stephen Harper’s government. One of our members, Tim Thibault, was important as a research source for Marci MacDonald in putting this book together. At this meet up, we have invited Tim to give us the lowdown on the book and some of the back story to the research of the book.

It would be ideal if we could all read the book for this meet up, but if that is not possible, MacDonald has also published a similarly-themed article in the Walrus: “Stephen Harper and the Theo-cons”.
