Religion and science are perfectly complimentary
Questioning Stephen Harper's degree of funding for science research is a fair discussion point, but to connect this with religious dogma is absurd.
Religion and science are perfectly complimentary and any research will bear out the fact that many of the greatest scientific discoveries have come from devout Christians. A few examples and their discoveries include: George Lemaitre (Catholic priest/astronomer who proposed the Big Bang Theory), Francis Collins (devout Christian/director of the Human Genome Project), Louis Pasteur (ardent Christian/ pasteurization, rabies, vaccines), Marconi (Catholic/Nobel prize,radio), Jerome Lejeune (devout Catholic/geneticist, identified down syndrome), Andre Ampere (devout Catholic/father of electro magnetism), Allesandro Volta (devout Catholic/ first electric battery), Roger Boskovic (Catholic priest/ discoveries on atomic theory).
There are so many more examples if one simply googles famous Christian scientists but the writer of the letter unfortunately chose not to do even this but instead preferred to throw out discriminatory anti religious myths and rhetoric. I would suggest that his scientific research on this subject was lacking funding.
