Canada Killing Free Speech on Homosexuality

MassResistance has written before about the dangers of criminalizing dissent on the homosexual agenda. Because homosexual radicals have confused the public and legislators by arguing that their demands are all about "rights", they can next insist that anyone who has an objection to their behaviors and claims must be silenced.

Canada is leading the way down this totalitarian path with its "Human Rights Commission". This is thought control, under the guise of anti-discrimination and "hate-speech" laws. Free speech is being eliminated on this issue. And other issues will surely follow, if they get away with this!

Now in Alberta, a pastor who wrote that homosexuality is immoral and a health risk is being accused of hate speech, and dragged before the Human Rights Commission. It's coming our way soon! From LifeSite News:

[Rev. Stephen] Boissoin is being hauled before the Human Rights Commission to answer to a complaint filed by Darren Lund, an assistant professor at the University of Calgary. Lund made his complaint after Boissoin published a letter to the editor in the Red Deer Advocate, in which he denounced homosexuality as immoral and dangerous, and called into question new gay-rights curriculums permeating the province’s educational system.

In that letter to the editor, Boisson lamented that “Children as young as five and six years of age are being subjected to psychologically and physiologically damaging pro-homosexual literature and guidance in the public school system; all under the fraudulent guise of equal rights.”

Boissoin, who is himself no stranger to the dangers of homosexual and bi-sexual activity, since many of the youth he works with fall into that category, repeatedly expressed his concern that behaviour that is dangerous, and sometimes fatal, is being presented as normative and even healthy to the most impressionable. “I was just writing a letter to the editor, to the heterosexual population,” he says, “saying this is something to be very, very concerned about.”
