Furthering the confusion over free speech, a suit against a youth pastor in Canada, brought under a hate crime statute, alleges "hate" for sending the following text to a local newspaper, which was published in Letters to the Editor:
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.
For this crime, he may be fined up to $7000 and serve jail time. Regardless of the outcome of the case, he says he will refuse to pay.
This type of judicial idiocy is dangerous to us all, both gay and straight. I hope he wins his case. The court should review my post on What is Hate? to help make their decision ;)
