Canada is a Christian nation because.....
A guy just told me it's because the vast majority of Canadians are Christian.
About 85% of us are white. Does that make us a white nation?

Well I woulda said it was the snow.......

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Canada is a Christian nation because.....
Its a Christian nation because, being part of the British Commonwealth, its a constitutional monarchy. The Queen being head of the Anglican Church.

Which is bullshit.

In all honesty why do countries have to have bullshit things like national anthems, flags, religions, flowers and birds?

I fucking hate all that bollocks. Just get on with your bloody job, and stop dicking about.

Do we really need a national anthem? The most dreary, depressing, up your own arse lyrics.

Canada, with no real separation of church and state, still behaves like a secular society.

America, founded with a clear separation of church and state, illegally builds itself into a christian nation.

O Canada!
Our home and native land!
True patriot love in all thy sons command.
With glowing hearts we see thee rise,
The True North strong and free!
From far and wide,
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
God keep our land glorious and free!
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.
O Canada, we stand on guard for thee.


Lets just say I'm pretty sure that's Jesus Dad.

Substitute Hockey for God. It wouldn't hurt the song.

The Dutch National Anthem:

William of Nassau, scion
Of a German and ancient line,
I dedicate undying
Faith to this land of mine.
A prince am I undaunted,
Of Orange, ever free,
To the king of Spain I've granted
A lifelong loyalty.


I've ever tried to live in
The fear of God's command
And therefore I've been driven,
From people, home, and land,
But God, I trust, will rate me
His willing instrument
And one day reinstate me
Into my government.


Let no despair betray you,
My subjects true and good.
The Lord will surely stay you
Though now you are pursued.
He who would live devoutly
Must pray God day and night
To throw His power about me
As champion of your right.


Life and my all for others
I sacrificed, for you!
And my illustrious brothers
Proved their devotion too.
Count Adolf, more's the pity,
Fell in the Frisian fray,
And in the eternal city
Awaits the judgement day.


I, nobly born, descended
From an imperial stock.
An empire's prince, defended
(Braving the battle's shock
Heroically and fearless
As pious Christian ought)
With my life's blood the peerless
Gospel of God our Lord.


A shield and my reliance,
O God, Thou ever wert.
I'll trust unto Thy guidance.
O leave me not ungirt.
That I may stay a pious
Servant of Thine for aye
And drive the plagues that try us
And tyranny away.


The Dutch are probably the most secular nation on earth, and I doubt that you will find many amongst the Dutch citizens who have "sworn loyalty to the Spanish King". The Idea that an athem determins a nations social patchwork is really stupid.

Or it's stupid to keep stupid shit in an anthem that doesn't reflect its people.

I doubt that there is any anthem out there that "represents the people and country".

The British anthem is just one big pompus tune worshiping the monarch. The German athnem asks for luck and peace for the nation and the French anthem is a marching song from the revolutionary wars.

Although I like the Idea.
