is an MP in the House of Commons of Canada, and he's essentially their version of Ted Cruz
: Irrationally conservative, bigoted and proud of it, and eager not to give an inch on any issue since it's all a matter of principle. But one particular response in a recent interview

At San Diego State University, in a choir class that is required for certain degrees, a professor told students they had to perform at a local Baptist church, then sit through the sermon.

If you want to get baptized, fine. Find a pastor and have at it.But forcing others to get baptized? That's messed up. And that's not even the worst part of this story involving a Florida man who said God was speaking to him
Last night, I watched Ray Comfort
's latest film The Atheist Delusion

Last night, in a spellbinding interview
, Khizr Khan
told MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell
that he only delivered half

and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell
-- both Republicans whom Khan praised generously for their patriotism and leadership -- to set aside politics and repudiate Trump for the good of the country.
