That was the lesson Conservative MP Wai Young delivered in a sermon to the Harvest City Church in Vancouver last month.
Young said the government was doing Jesus' work when it passed C-51, the most controversial piece of legislation debated in Canada this year.
As first reported by Press Progress, Young said the government is acting in the vein of Jesus by doing not what is popular but what is right.
She opened her remarks to the congregation by saying it's dicey to mix religion and politics. Then she launched into into a speech that hit on Vladimir Putin, the gruesome murder of a hockey mom, drunk driving, ISIS beheadings and the assassination of a sentry in Ottawa teaching Canada "we need to now grow up and acknowledge that we need to protect ourselves."
To lighten things up, she also talked about tax breaks introduced by her government.
Young also said that she doesn't read newspapers anymore because "most of the facts in there are not factual." Then she moved on to Jesus. Young said that sure, Jesus saved, but he took action as well.
“That’s why we still study the bible and study Jesus, because we see that he has done these incredible things. So I want to share with you what I think about what our government is doing in the same vein," said Young.
And before long #CPCJesus was trending across Canada.
