Quote:
Come on, Rev! What you are saying rings of self-adulation and a lack of compassion.

RedE, I am all eyes and ears to read and hear about the ways you practice compassion and serve the needy. Naturally, without judging your motives, I will take you at your word.

The fact remains: NL was a colony, an exploited one at that, of England until 1949, when it became Canada's tenth province, which the students at my university helped bring about. Canada did not have a Health Care system--and many other social programs--until 1965. The churches, of all denominations, pushed for this. The Medical Associations were opposed.
