Every time something like this happens in my area, I both write and call to let them know that I will not watch/listen/read until they reverse that decision. If that’s forever, I’m okay with that. I do not need programming from a bigoted and intolerant network in my life; if they have no room for real Christians in their world, then I want no part of them.

Not really. I wish the new Conservative majority would start standing up to this and not go all squishy like our RINOs.

In a word - no.
Parts of the Bible are now considered "hate speech", and DJs are even banned from playing Dire Straits' "Money for Nothing."
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh Canada .... you ought to be ashamed.

I have heard they are already using hate speech laws to silence pastors up there, but I do not have a link to confirm it. I know that it will only be a matter of time before that it is done here in the USA. My only hope is that the ACLJ will make those laws be used on real hate groups like LaRaza and the NBP.

It has been shown that Eric Holder will let his people violate the civil rights of others, so I’m not getting my hopes up.

Not like we do, no. For example, in Canada they could easily shut down a KKK march, where here it’s protected speech.

I posted a thread from a female lesbian hockey player (who is married) that is furious with Todd Reynolds and sent him an open letter in this regard. The thread was pulled from Free Republic, but if anyone would like to read what she has to say, here's the Link.

In one sense, she's right. They are going to win for a short time, but I've already read the back of the Book and it doesn't go well for those like Chai Feldblum at all.

Nonsense! Great tolerance is a 3" group at 100 yards and true diversity is qualifying with pistols, rifles and shotguns.

I agree, I do believe we’re so close it’s not even funny now. I do hope that we get to see their comeuppance, but I have this wedding to attend that’s been in the planning for ever, so we’ll have to see. If I miss the wedding though, I’ll catch pure hell for sure.

Canada is shot-through with socialism and political correctness, so they don't have freedom of speech as you imagine it. It is worse than the USA, and similar to Europe's condition.

Not to be nit picky here but.. you really need to read the article closer.

Unless I’m mistaken this is NOT state run TV. Censorship is when the Government shuts you up.

To me this reads as a company that did not like his comments so they fired him. Same thing could and has happened here in the US. Private companies can fire people if they don’t like what they say in public and they hear it will impact their business.

Where? .

Rogers Sportsnet is owned by Rogers Media , trades on the Toronto Exchange, RCI.B (TSX) . It's not the Canadian government .

Far too many ignorant statements made on this thread about Canada . Sportnet fires an employee because of what is said, , Free Republic bans ( censors) because of what is said. What's the difference ?

Oh, my bad.
So when a college newspaper (for example) prints something supporting a Conservative view, and the college communists run around and confiscate every single copy, that's not censorship.
Or when a Conservative speaker gets run off the stage anywhere in America, that's not censorship.
Or what the MSM does everyday, that's not censorship.
Okay, I think I got it.

The story of Damian Goddard today and the story of Todd Reynolds yesterday was what I was referring to. Both voiced support of traditional marriage, both are now unemployed. And there have been many many stories of people who supported California’s Proposition 8 and have had to endure the public wrath of pro-gay marriage advocates.

No, you don't got it.

Words mean things. And "censorship" is when the government suppresses free speech.

Those other cases you cited are simply "suppression of free speech".

I still LOL at the canadian threads that because canada lowered the tax rate it’s all hunky dory....I’m back in Vancouver twice a year and the biggest industry is security guards just to guard the massive and empty Olympic facilities.

If the libs have their way, in the not too distant future, if you do not support the homosexual agenda, you will have a tough time getting a job if not prosecuted for having the wrong ideas. It’s happening in Canada and Europe, it can happen here.

Okay, the deluge is now upon us. NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH! None. A sports commentator "tweets" his support of someone else who supports traditional aka "real" marriage - and his career is ruined, his livelihood destroyed. When - when!! are people going to stand up against this Nazi and Stalin-esque evil???

The big thing here is, the guy admitted to his beliefs, and bit the bullet by getting fired. I at least accept him doing that as the correct thing. As for the gymnast, it is disappointing that such a great athlete is gone from our team effort.

In too many ways, it appears they do not. IIRC you can be prosecuted for 'hate speech' in Canada.

Never fear, though. It's coming soon to an America near you.
