    Jesus has long been an enigma, a blank canvas on which people of different cultures and persuasions have drawn a likeness. In the West, we are all familiar with a fair-skinned, blue-eyed Jesus, but African Christians color him black, and Oriental Christians give his eyes the epicanthic fold.

    August 10, 2011

    Back in 2006, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said, "I think the government of Canada, when a Canadian citizen is ill-treated and when the rights of a Canadian citizen need to be defended, I think it's always the obligation of the government of Canada to vocally and publicly stand up for that Canadian citizen. That is what we will continue to do." That was then and this is now. He was talking about the case of Huseyn Celil, a Uyghur from China who is a Canadian citizen and who served as an imam in Hamilton, Ontario.
