Comments on: Religious Freedom, Canadian Style Conservative commentary served up in bite-sized bits Fri, 04 May 2007 02:44:16 +0000 hourly 1 By: Doug Payton Fri, 04 May 2007 02:44:16 +0000 The “hate crime” bill, which is more like a “thought crime” bill since it criminalizes peaceful free speech, is due for a vote very soon. Call your Congresscritter.

Other than losing his job, I trust that the faithful in Saskatchewan will give him money to cover his loss. It could be more than $5000 because of the court costs.

Thing are really really bad in Canada regarding free speech. A Kamloops City Councilor was force to pay $1000 to a gay person for publicly saying that homosexuality was not natural or normal. He chose to pay the initial amount in order to avoid a human rights tribunal. In Canada if you lose you have to pay all the court costs. If they complainant loses they pay nothing.

Canada is becoming a country ruled by activist judges and a legion of other activists who desire to shut down free speech (whether Christian or not).

In the US it is still pretty clear that a right to marry does not require anyone else to participate in the actual ceremony. In contrast, the clerk issuing the license can’t make up his own rules about who may marry.

I say ‘pretty clear’ because the trend is pretty clear too.
