SASKATOON, SK, May 18, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) A Saskatchewan man has been charged and ordered to pay $17,500 in damages to several homosexuals as a result of a flyer he distributed in Regina, containing warnings against the dangers of a homosexual lifestyle that a human rights tribunal ruled was hate speech.
On May 2, the Saskatchewan Human Rights Tribunal ordered William Whatcott to pay homosexual Guy Taylor $2,500 and $5,000 each to homosexuals Brenden Wallace, James Komar and Kathy Hamre for damages. The four had sued Whatcott for a flyer he had distributed in mailboxes between September 2001 and April 2002 for what they considered hate speech.
I believe homosexuality activity is a sin, Whatcott said, according to a CP report. To give me a $17,500 fine and say I can't say that is quite frankly garbage and is not something I am going to abide by. If I have to sit in jail for the rest of my life, I am not going to be quiet.
Quotes found to convict him included, Our children will pay the price in disease, death, abuse if we do not say no to the sodomite desire to socialize your children into accepting something that is clearly wrong, and Sodomites are 430 times more likely to acquire AIDS and 3 times more likely to sexually abuse children!
Whatcott added bible verses referring to homosexuality such as the following: The Bible is clear that homosexuality is an abomination, and Sodom and Gomorrah was given over completely to homosexual perversion and as a result destroyed by Gods wrath.
Whatcott argued in his own defence that he had himself engaged in homosexual acts and that the Lord had set him free, according to court testimony. He added that only 2% of homosexuals were monogamous or semi-monogamous, while 43% of male homosexuals estimate having had sex with 500 or more different partners, and 28% of male homosexuals estimate having sex with 1,000 or more different partners.
Is it any wonder aids is running rampant in the homosexual communiy?...oh wait did I just commit a hate crime?Am I now forever barred from entering canda? The whole country is becoming a huge joke with no punch line.Just like its sister country england
Not much free speech in Canada eh?
Canada is a lost cause!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"...$17,500 in damages to several homosexuals ..."
Apart from not liking the message, how were they 'damaged'?
If Canada wants to attack free speech and still call themselves a Western country then maybe we should keep our Yankee dollars at home.
It is only a matter of time before our Supreme Court REFERS to this case on which to base a future decisions about FREE SPEECH here in the United States.
If so, what is the method?
And yet Tobacco companies are REQUIRED to tell people how dangerous their product can be.
As much as the 'Gay' community wants us to accept them and their 'life' partners, if a cure for AIDS is found, then virtually overnight, the Bath Houses will open up once again with multiple partners engaging in sex with unknown partners.
Sooner than we think.
If his flyer contained purely medical information about the dangers of the "lifestyle", would he still be in trouble? Or is it the Christian angle that put him in hot water?
And if they were "damaged", doesn't that prove him right that homosexuality is dangerous?
Did he hurt da widdle sissy's feelings? Aaaaaaawwwwww!
You mean france?
Although England's 'no personal defense' laws of late are quite twisted, we (USA) hold that sister title.
I'd tell 'em to kiss my as...,ooh,nevermind.
Guess something like this is hateful, even if it is factual.
None are so blind as those who refuse to see . . .
The lifespan of a single homosexual man, aside from AIDS, in the United States is 42 years.
This is according to a study done by Dr. Paul Cameron, Chairman of Family Research Institute, Inc. Studied were 6,737 obituaries from 18 U.S. homosexual journals over 13 years; they were compared to a large sample of obituaries from regular newspapers. (Cameron et al. The longevity of homosexuals.
