'Witch hunt' expected under new U.S. 'hate crimes' law
WND ^ | 12/13/2009 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 12/13/2009 6:40:26 PM PST by markomalley

The lawyer who handled the years-long battle by Pastor Stephen Boissoin over "hate speech" charges for a letter he wrote to the editor of a local newspaper that cited the Bible's condemnation of homosexuality is forecasting a nationwide "witch hunt" in the U.S. prompted by an expanded "hate crimes" law signed by President Obama.

Gerald Chipeur,  who supervises law offices across Canada, worked from his Calgary headquarters on the defense of Boissoin, who was accused by a university professor of instigating hate against homosexuals with his letter to the editor.

As WND reported, an appellate court in Canada recently reversed the decision by an administrative judge that Boissoin was to pay $5,000 and give a written apology to the professor.

Alberta had adopted a "hate speech" law with promises it would be reserved for actions that accompany "hate speech." Boissoin's letter to the Red Deer Advocate criticized those who "in any way support the homosexual machine that has been mercilessly gaining ground in our society since the 1960s."

"Our children are being victimized by repugnant and premeditated strategies, aimed at desensitizing and eventually recruiting our young into their camps. Think about it, 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… Your teenagers are being instructed on how to perform so-called safe same gender oral and anal sex … Come on people, wake up!" Boisson wrote.

University of Calgary professor Darren Lund filed the complaint with the Alberta Human Rights Commission . An administrative law judge later ordered the $5,000 payment and written apology from Boissoin along with instructions not to express his beliefs further.

Doesn't matter. Americans will continue to stay home and do nothing (for all the totally empty noise they will continue to make), just like they've always done.

America -- a great idea, didn't last.

What should be outlawed is the piggybacking onto essential legislation of a “bill” that could never pass on its own. Congresscritters are so afraid of their opponents in the next election criticizing their voting no on a military appropriations bill, without any explanation of the circumstances, that they are “forced” to vote for the double-decker bill. Can someone please introduce a reform of this practice? It affects both parties really.

I'm reading the facts, but I don't see any hate here. What this man had to say was correct. Where's the hate?
The "hate crimes" bill is like the global warming scam. Why not open the homosexual issue to debate? Why is no one allowed to question? If people had been able to question global warming, we wouldn't have waisted so much money, time, and freedoms on a lie.

You can say whatever you want to. Say it as an opinion, a thought, or a belief. You're protected by the Constitution. If you state it as a fact, you have to prove it.

[[’Witch hunt’ expected under new U.S. ‘hate crimes’ law]]

Shouldn’t it be concidered a ‘hate crime’ for homosexuals, or anyone else for that matter to tell religious folks they don’t have a right to bleeive in God and His word? Isn’t that intolorance of Religion?

[[First amendment. Freedom of religious expression.]]

mmm- not so much- the supreme court has unconstitutionally banned public officials from their right to freely express their religious views- falsely claimign that those hwo do that are ‘tryign to establish a government religious preference’

As well, it’s agaisnt hte law to freely express religious views with plaques in public spaces, and folks all across this country are beign arrested for handing out tracts and bibles and religious material at rallys

The left doesn’t care one whit for our constitution- And Canada never thought they would ever run into the type problems they did when their country passed ‘hate crime laws’ yet they did- We may very well here too

I don’t foresee an overt governmental witch hunt. I do foresee a covert witch hunt in the workplace, however, instigated by the government.

I work for a large international company that allows employees to form common interest groups for all purposes except the sharing of religious faith. Tolerance, indeed.

Maybe what should be added is a reading and comprehensive course for posters as yourself.

Just a thought...while there is a little time left to have and/or express such thoughts....

I personally hate venomously the following:

If ever called upon, I will support any and all efforts to rescue this Nation, by any means necessary, from the grip of any of the above....Just a thought in the head of a 75-year old Marine...

Maybe next century after history has been revised.
Don't expect the RINO's to get it done.

Yep! But no HOA's here where I live on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay...Although it is hell dealing with the EPA Marxists and their supporters.....{:-(

Although, I have reduced visits to the door or into the yard to sample off of one of the docks over the past several years with a couple of well-placed terrifying, to them, signs...
