Please answer the poll.

I always believe traditionally that parties on the right part of the political spectrum are traditionally and grass roots -based have a Christian sect which is very large.

The Republicans in the USA have a huge Christian sect that votes for them.

In Canada most Evangelicals vote Conservative.

What part do you think this base should have in the party?

Do you recognize and accept that their is Christian underlings to the Conservative party?

Before I developed my Conservatism (defense, free market, democratic reform, etc.) I always placed them on my "side" as I was a Christian.

So lets discuss this tricky element to the party and today's political culture in Canada...

There are Christian underpinnings for the entire country; Judeo-Christian values are what built the West, and we would be wise to respect that, and continue that tradition.

Yes I always have seen the Right Wing parties (Conservatives, UK Conservatives, Aussie Liberals, Republicans) as the parties that don't want to create a Christian theocracy or have a national church but that want to respect, uphold, and continue the Judeo-Christian heritage the created and founded the Western civilization.

May that be the 10 commandments as the pillar of our justice system, or having God in political documents, or have a nativity scene on city hall.

I think the conservative parties of the western world are here to upkeep this.

And for that, alot of Christians who want this heritage upkept vote Conservative.
