If you ask the Minister for Science & Technology about his thoughts on the theory of evolution, you are asking him about his religious beliefs. You are not asking about his understanding and support of a scientific theory on which so much other science has been based.
If you demand that a recent immigration and refugee board appointee be fired because he opposes same-sex marriage and views homosexuality as sinful, you are making such demand on the basis of his religious belief. You are not making such demand on the basis of his support for Canadian law.
