Religious Right Alert is written and run by a volunteer group of bloggers from across Canada.
We come from different political and religious backgrounds and share a common interest in observing religious/socio/political intersections, interactions and involvements in Canada. Religious Right Alert has been set up to compile and comment on posts Canadian bloggers have published over the years, as well as traditional media articles.
There has not been a general site in Canada as yet recognizing the observations and hard work done by bloggers. While sites such as Religious Tolerance do an excellent job in explaining theology and beliefs, we are attempting to bring together a vast body of work already done by many.
We will be compiling, commenting and staying current on the movement of religious right groups and individuals across the country and their ties to the larger movement in the US and across the world.
This is a larger effort than the four bloggers who are setting up this site, and we welcome volunteers, submissions, posts and tips.
