    Editorial Reviews
    Product Description
    In her new book, award-winning journalist Marci McDonald draws back the curtain on the mysterious world of the right-wing Christian nationalist movement in Canada and its many ties to the Conservative government of Stephen Harper.

    To most Canadians, the politics of the United States — where fundamentalist Christians wield tremendous power and culture wars split the country — seem too foreign to ever happen here. But The Armageddon Factor shows that the Canadian Christian right — infuriated by the legalization of same-*** marriage and the increasing secularization of society — has been steadily and stealthily building organizations, alliances and contacts that have put them close to the levers of power and put the government of Canada in their debt.

    Determined to outlaw homosexuality and abortion, and to restore Canada to what they see as its divinely determined destiny to be a nation ruled by Christian laws and precepts, this group of true believers has moved the country far closer to the American mix of politics and religion than most Canadians would ever believe.

    McDonald’s book explores how a web of evangelical far-right Christians have built think-tanks and foundations that play a prominent role in determining policy for the Conservative government of Canada. She shows how Biblical belief has allowed Christians to put dozens of MPs in office and to build a power base across the country, across cultures and even across religions.

    “What drives that growing Christian nationalist movement is its adherents’ conviction that the end times foretold in the book of Revelation are at hand,” writes McDonald. “Braced for an impending apocalypse, they feel impelled to ensure that Canada assumes a unique, scripturally ordained role in the final days before the Second Coming — and little else.”

    The Armageddon Factor shows how the religious right’s influence on the Harper government has led to hugely important but little-known changes in everything from foreign policy and the makeup of the courts to funding for scientific research and social welfare programs like daycare. And the book also shows that the religious influence is here to stay, regardless of which party ends up in government.

    For those who thought the religious right in Canada was confined to rural areas and the west, this book is an eye-opener, outlining to what extent the corridors of power in Ottawa are now populated by true believers. For anyone who assumed that the American religious right stopped at the border, The Armageddon Factor explains how US money and evangelists have infiltrated Canadian politics.

    This book should be essential reading for Canadians of every religious belief or political stripe. Indeed, The Armageddon Factor should persuade every Canadian that, with the growth of such a movement, the future direction of the country is at stake.

      To be precise, it is Jesusits who are obsessed with same gender marriage.
      Since I am not a Jesusist I couldn't care less who marries whom and what they do to consume it.

              I note your volunteering the wiki quote , but must disappoint you: I have never heard of the word Jesusism and invented it as a sarcastic label for those racist hateful and hypocritical Taliban-Puritan sort of rednecks who place "JEEESUS THE LORD!!!!" and "PRO LIFE!!!!" b-u-m-persticker on their heavy rear end pick-up trucks , while toting the gun, fuming with hatred of "other" and ready to shoot and kill anyone who doesn't look like them just because they don't look like the next-door stinky a.ss racist redneck. Anyone who has been to rural or semi-rural uneducated, stupid and racist redneck infested places knows what I am talking about.

                  Armageddon, war of races and Jihadism Mullah Limbaugh style are not part of my agenda. Nor do I support candidates who make shooting target of elected representatives.

                  I am a PROUD JEFFERSONIAN LIBERAL DEMOCRAT and I stand for US Constitution and its' Bill of Rights that protects the dignity and well being of all, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, religion or gender orientation.

                  One thing I will not ever compromise with is any attempt to destroy the way of life and Constitution of this land!

                            I doubt there would be 36,500 Google hits on a word that you claim you invented, lol.

                              You must be slow in comprehension department, aren't you? hmm , amnyway... the fact is >>> I <<< haven't heard of that word before writing it here. So , for all practical purposes, the word was invented by myself, as far as my usage of the word is concerned. If I knew the word pre-existed I would read the definition and not use it in the context of my posts since what they describe in wiki is not to what I put into meaning of it when using in the context.
                              That doesn't negate the fact that, as it is apparent now, that word had existed for more than a hundred years (although with different meaning attached to it), so rest assured I am not going to send application to patent office to claim my original rights to word "Jesusism".
                              I thought this would be obvious, but apparently some people have difficulties grasping simple things, hence lengthy explanation, specially for individuals like you.
