The reference to the supremacy of God is right off the top.Now Tristan Emmanuel has an audience and a goal. The Ontario minister is deeply opposed to same-sex marriage, and he's organizing those who share his convictions. He is reminding those he talks to that they decide who goes to Ottawa.In churches such as this, the Orthodox Christian Reform Church of Cambridge, there is a kind of political awakening happening encouraged by the Reverend Tristan Emmanuel.Among his firm beliefs is that the time has come for Christians to speak with a louder voice in the world of politics.

I support more Christian involvement in the political arena, but I do have some concerns about the apparent obsession with winning the culture battle but losing the souls of people in the end. Recall how the fundamentalists won the Scopes trial but lost the ultimate battle of the creation-evolution controversy.
