Nemuri Kyoshiro Posted November 11, 2021 Share Posted November 11, 2021 Just now, BossCrow said: This from his Wiki page under 'Beliefs' - Chisholm was a controversial public speaker who nevertheless spoke with great conviction, and drew much criticism from the Canadian public for comments in the mid-1940s that children should not be encouraged to believe in Santa Claus, the Bible or anything he regarded as supernaturalism. Calls for his resignation as Deputy Minister of Health were quelled by his appointment as Executive Secretary of the WHO, but his public perception as "Canada's most famously articulate angry man" lingered. Religious and other conservative writers and groups have accused Chisholm of being a Marxist or a Communist or subversive. Others placed Chisholm among three prominent Humanists who early on headed important United Nations agencies: Julian Huxley of UNESCO and John Boyd-Orr of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO). At least one conservative women's group in Southern California considered Chisholm to be the Anti-Christ. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
