Youthful theocons plan big Ottawa rally

[Posted at Bene Diction Blogs On, May 14, 2011] August 27 is set as the date when hundreds if not thousands, of very conservative Christian youngsters will gather in Ottawa. My guess is that they will try to meet on Parliament Hill. It's The Cry Ottawa, and if the last such event is any indication, they will gather to sing, hear speakers and pray for Canada. No doubt Faytene Grasseschi (the former Faytene Kryskow) could be interested in being there, or involved in some way, as The Cry was her baby for so many years. But then again, maybe the new leaders she's grooming will step up. The Cry's feature some laudable things, but as I noted in my extended post on the last such event, The Cry Vancouver in 2009, dominionist and theocratic emphases have had a way of creeping in.
