    Are we really surprised that the NY Times did not publish this? Why would they, it would admit that they are bias and wrong.

    Surprisingly fair article from the usually secular Canadian press! The ususal rabid comments afterward. I wonder why this article, or a counterpart, has not appeared in the American press. Just asking.
