Guy Giorno goes to Ottawa

I met Guy about two months ago at a Manning Centre for Building Democracy event. He was that week's guest lecturer for the Political Communications course I was taking with the MCBD. I thought he was a terrific speaker and observed that he does have passion in what he does. All of the guest lecturers for the 7-week course stayed after to meet and greet with the class of about 20. Guy was the only one out of 7 weeks of lecturers to take off right away. I figured he had a plane to catch or something, but like our other lecturers, they said so and apologize for only being able to stay for 5 or 10 minutes.

Now that these alleged characteristics of Guy are coming out, I can see the "introvert", but certainly not the Jane Taber axe job on him, caulking him up to be "an introverted, hard-core Conservative with a strategic mind and a deep religious faith is set to take over as Stephen Harper's top adviser."

Funny, if he was of any different religion would they be as fixated on his faith? Here comes another round of The chronicles of Harper's "hidden agenda"

What relevance is Guy's catholicism? Taber's subtext is: "I'm okay with Catholics being involved in politics, unless they're practising Catholics. Otherwise keep the papists out.
Along with any other Christians."

Note to Taber's editor: had she made a similar insinuation about a Hindu, Muslim or Jew you would have fired her.

Actually, if the media were being honest, they would that admit that appointing the very Catholic Giorno somewhat undercuts their conspiracy theory of Harper as an evangelical Christian. But that would involve admitting they were wrong.
