IMHO freedom of speech has more Canadian support than the pro-life position.

Do Canadians not have freedom of speech?

You need to rephrase the question and insert "Christian". Then, as for the answer, no.......

Nope. There is no "First Amendment" in Canada.

They also have Human Rights tribunals... but look out most states are getting those as well. Canada is just a decade or so ahead of us.

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

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

Yep ... words mean things.

More evidence that the Gaystapo runs the media. This is why cowards like Rush, Beck, Hannity, etc. don’t ever dare criticize the butt-sex agenda.

Since the executive branch has so much power, all the more reason for all of us to get out next year and vote Obama out and a decent conservative into office. No more sitting home and sulking next year.

Many countries have drunk the kool aid of socialism because they want the money benefits, thinking that somehow they are getting things for free. But with the bribes come all of the socialist agenda which is very much interested in controlling human beings as if they are guinea pigs to the socialist elites. Socialism has its roots going way back to the French Revolution which was anti-God and radical in its attempt to turn human society upside down.

"Definition of CENSORSHIP" 1 a : the institution, system, or practice of censoring b : the actions or practices of censors; especially : censorial control exercised repressively

"Definition of CENSOR"

transitive verb : to examine in order to suppress or delete anything considered objectionable ; also : to suppress or delete as objectionable

________________________________

Don't see anything in there about "government".

For that matter, look at one of the examples Merriam's uses:

"Examples of CENSOR

The station censored her speech before broadcasting it.
