'Single-issue' candidates target nominations

The G&M has a follow-up on this weekends stories about Christian activists.

Money quote:
Christian activist groups told The Globe and Mail last week that they have made concerted -- and often successful -- efforts to win Conservative nominations for members of their faith who are willing to go to Ottawa and fight against measures such as the redefinition of marriage to include same-sex couples. They said members of congregations were urged to take out Conservative memberships and flood meetings to ensure the candidate of their choice was elected.
If this really is an organized and concerted campaign, it is indeed newsworthy.

Hey, they have learned from history and the CPC hasn't. This is the EXACT same way that Chuck Cadman lost the CPC nomination in his riding...and look how well that worked out for the CPC.

Perhaps us Pro-SSM folks should do the same in CPC and Liberal Ridings too...just to square things
