It is now a crime to read Leviticus 18:22 in Canada:
In Canada, the Gay Militia’s definition of ‘hate’?expressing public opposition to homosexuality?is now officially the law of the land. Bill C-250, which adds ‘sexual orientation’ to the nation’s wide-ranging hate-propaganda law, sailed through the Senate on April 28 on a vote of 59-11. Before C-250 it was already illegal to publish, distribute, mail, import, or speak any communication that could be perceived as promoting or inciting ‘hate’ against ‘identifiable groups,’ such as members of a certain race or gender. The new law recognizes gays and lesbians as an identifiable group?and makes any person who criticizes homosexuals publicly subject to two years in jail.
This is really bizarre. But Americans who are surprised by this ham-fisted bludgeoning of free speech in the name of tolerance (myself included) haven’t been paying attention:
Even without C-250, London, Ontario, officials recently slapped a Christian mayor with a $10,000 fine for refusing to proclaim “Gay Pride Day.” A Christian businessman in Toronto was fined $5,000 for refusing to print materials for a gay-rights group.
Wow. Americans, wake up. Our Supreme Court has already ruled that the right to free speech is not constitutionally guaranteed (McCain/Feingold). It’s just a matter of time before we’re facing the thought police, just like our neighbors in the Gay White North.
