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.
Looks like they're winning in Canada...
Same stupid "PC" laws coming to a city/state near US soon....
What have you done now???
cause al lthose dirty words hurt thier fragile wittle minds
I really, really don't like it when folks go distributing me like that.
We aren't far behind.
How come all the Muslims in Canada aren't in jail? Don't they say the same thing this guy said?
As we have stated before there is no freedom in Canada or the EU. We need to block the border in the north as well as the south.
"...$17,500 in damages to several homosexuals ..."
Only Canadian dollars.
You said "behind." Heh-heh.
Whatcott added bible verses referring to homosexuality...
Next they'll be flushing those pages of the Bible with those verses on them down the toilet. Do we get to have a riot then?
Jesus said: "And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? Wherefore, they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder." -from THE BIBLE: Matthew 19:4-6
