CANADIAN court agrees that BIBLE is HATE LITERATURE
CWNews.com ^ | 2-11-2003 | staff

Posted on 02/13/2003 6:56:57 AM PST by Notwithstanding

In a ruling given virtually no media coverage, the Court of Queen's Bench in Saskatchewan, ruled that a man who placed references to Bible verses on homosexuality into a newspaper ad was guilty of inciting hatred. The December 11, 2002 decision was in response to an appeal of a 2001 Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission (HRC) ruling which ordered both the Saskatoon StarPhoenix newspaper and Hugh Owens of Regina to pay CAN$1,500 to three homosexual activists for publishing an ad in the Saskatoon newspaper quoting Bible verses regarding homosexuality.

The purpose of the ad was to indicate that the Bible says no to homosexual behavior. The advertisement displayed references to four Bible passages: Romans 1, Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10, on the left side. An equal sign (=) was situated in the middle, with a symbol on the right side. The symbol was comprised of two males holding hands with the universal symbol of a red circle with a diagonal bar superimposed over top.

Justice J. Barclay rejected the appeal ruling: "In my view, the Board was correct in concluding that the advertisement can objectively be seen as exposing homosexuals to hatred or ridicule. When the use of the circle and slash is combined with the passages of the Bible, it exposes homosexuals to detestation, vilification and disgrace. In other words, the Biblical passage which suggests that if a man lies with a man they must be put to death exposes homosexuals to hatred."

Janet Epp Buckingham, Legal Counsel for the Evangelical Fellowship of Canada, told LifeSite: "The ruling that a verse from the Bible can be considered to expose homosexuals to hatred shows the danger for Scripture if Bill C-250 passes." Bill C-250, proposed by homosexual activist MP Svend Robinson, would see "sexual orientation" added to hate crime law as a prohibited ground of discrimination.

I hate to say it, but you're wrong. Look up Ernst Zundel, Doug Collins, Paul Fromme, and a few other cases whose names escape me. (Scott ?, a printer from Toronto?)

There is no possible way Canada respects freedom of thought and speech in the same way that America does. The Doug Collins case is particularly odious, where the adjudicator for the alleged "Human Rights" tribunal claimed that "the Truth is no defense" and that "hurt feelings are the issue".

Canada is becoming a repugnant nation of penis envy and hatred.

Let's see, the person you are addressing cuts and pastes a quote that accuses me of being a defender of alternative lifestyles, a blatant lie, but you can't see where I may have interpreted that he agreed with the charge?

Man. I looked for it but couldn't find it. Perhaps the moderator nixed that post.

None so blind as they who will not see.

Aw, come on, Mr. Gonzalez. Don't be that way. It's not necessary or good. I don't think the guy is your enemy and neither am I.

Well, sir, the man only noted that you showed up as predicted, even though you may have been pinged here, but he did not, at that time, accuse you of being a gay defender as you claim.

The post you refer me to does not support your contention.

Yeah, the infamous ping post was a bit insulting if untrue. But can you see that your namecalling, insults, profanity and accusations might offend the people you level them at, especially when they have done nothing to justify such abuse?

Do you think all these people come to the FR just to pick on you?

The people whom I offend, such as yourself on our last few encounters, do things like the Kid did here, much like yourself in our last few encounters.

If you think that I am at all concerned about the sensitivities of people on this forum who make the conscientious choice to initiate a debate with me my being either insulting, or abusive, you are wrong.

I don't care what you think of me if that is your choice of dialogue, and I'll do my best to make sure that you don't ever bother posting to me again.

Why shouldn't I do just that?

On the other hand, if you decide to keep the dialogue civil, I'll do the same.

Well, sir, I WAS talking about you when I admonished him not to admire keyboard threats and profanity. But I cannot show your posts that he was referring to, because so many of them are removed by the moderators.

But this person gives reference to what I was talking about. His post was not removed, so I refer this part of it to you. It is not meant as a jab, sir, just a call to civility. I know how difficult it is to keep from being drawn into this sort of thing.

Luis Gonzalez Part 1:
Luis: Sorry kid,...I'll bitch-slap you into nothingness.
Luis: ...like your a$$hole buddy Todd...

And then Luis Gonzalez Part 2:
Luis: ...I am a Christian, and I find it offensive.

I can link to our last two encounters, I'll link to the first communication between the two of us. On both threads, your first post to me were insulting, and confrontational.

Need the links one more time?

Want to take one more look to see if I posted anything to you before you started with the personal attacks on me?

Then you spend the rest of the thread claiming injury, because my response to your insult was too insulting.

Cute post.

"Well, sir, I WAS talking about you when I admonished him not to admire keyboard threats and profanity. But I cannot show your posts that he was referring to, because so many of them are removed by the moderators."

This is a normal tactic of yours, but you're just not all that good at it.

None of the pulled posts on this thread are mine. If you look down the responses, you will eventually find one or more posted in response to the pulled post. Look who the post is addressed to. That way you can tell whose post was removed. I responded to insulting posts, if you look at the post, you can link beck to the post I was responding to, then read my response in context...which is why you never provide links.

Sorry to ruin your theory.

Having said that, I don't give a rat's ass what you have to say about my response. Is not for you to decide how I should respond to personal attacks, and if you don't like my response, don't engage in leveling personal attacks at me.

It's very simple.

"I am a Christian, and I find it offensive."

Yes I did, I found the ad absolutely offensive, and I am a Christian, and what of it?

I guess you believe that in order for an individual to be a Christian, one has to endure boorish behavior from the hoi polloi, you are wrong.

But then again, you being wrong is the rule rather than the exception each and every time we run across one another.

Criminy, man. Well, at least you haven't sunk down low enough to scream that my sweet old mother is a whore, at least not on this thread, at least not yet. But do you ever wonder why so many people seem to grow angry with you? Do you think it might have something to do with your threatening to bitch slap [them] into nothingness and call them a$$holes? I'm not telling you not to do it. I'm just wondering if you ever think there might be several causes.

Not only do you not have a notion of what the truth is, I NEVER called your mother a whore, and you will not provide a link to the post where I did that, because you can't, but you are one dishonest dude. You apologized to me for continuously attacking me with racial slurs, I guess that's next, since your word ain't word the paper you flush down the toilet.

David...you see? A hypocrite, that's all he is.

BTW...I mentioned that I had heard that your mother worked at the border, you were the one that told us what she did there.

What's particularly sad and crazy, Archimedes2000, is that so many Canadians actually defend the taking away of their own freedoms. Americans are a different breed.

They are not "slouching to Gomorrah" -- they have declared themselves "Gomorrah".

In Canada, homosexuality is now 'normalized', with kids being indoctrinated in schools, scouting programs, churches and by government programs. And the average parent citizen retains little or no power to stop that (because, in large part, speech 'offensive' to homosexuals is being criminalized).

You and I exchanged words on this subject, and while the debate was heated, and it is a subject that emotes passion, we kept the dialogue fairly civil.

This poster, Thorondir, is a racist, follow him about the forum and you will find plenty of evidence to that effect.

He first posted to me on a thread announcing my Radio FR show featuring the Executive Director of The Islamic Supreme Council of America...here is that first post, we had never spoken to one another before, to the best of my recollections.

My first response to him was measured, and polite, but as you will see as you follow the thread, that was not his intention at all, by this post he was already starting the ethnic slurs. He continue scalating, and a few posts later, he began the name-calling.

I would ask you to closely examine the thread to verify my facts.

The ethnic slurs continued on the thread, as well as insults leveled at Christian folk who spoke about converting Muslims to Christianity by showing them the love of Jesus Christ.

Should you wish further evidence of this man's racism, simply follow his posts in the forum, it will become nausiantingly evident to you very quickly.

One last thing, by the end of our last encounter, he apologized for the ethnic slurs, and I had not addressed him since.

He apparently decided to retract that apology, and initiate the flame war once again.

You will notice that once again, he addressed me first, and is starting the name-calling already.

You will also notice that unlike in my posts, he will not substantiate a single accusation, he won't because they are lies.

Specifically, the one about my calling his mother a whore...no such thing, and he can't provide you with a link.

Like on this thread, he will claim that the post was pulled, but as I demonstrated on this thread already, he lies about that as well.

Hi Luis, ;-)

I went back on this thread where things started to get heated up again because you thought Throndir was being disingenuine. Then I noticed you started getting heated up again where you though Throndir was being disingenuine. I believe that you really thought he was being disingenuine but I did not view it as that. I thought that he really did not see the post you were talking about. Maybe I'm too naive but I really did believe him that he did not see the post where you were accused of defending gays. I think since you thought he was starting to pick on you again you started heating up again. And understandably so after your last encounters with Throndir. But Throndir already has apologized for that last encounter. So lets start again with a clean slate. So everyone, calm down a bit and lets get back to civility. Lets all talk about the issues calmly and not get personal. That is for everyone.

I DID apologize for responding to your profane attacks with anger, sir. And it was like pulling teeth to get you to apologize for repeatedly calling my mother a whore, which you kindly did. Thank you.

Nope.

You will notice that once again, he addressed me first, and is starting the name-calling already.

Please link to the post on this thread where I have called you any name. I have done nothing of the kind, sir. Not once. Not even close.

Specifically, the one about my calling his mother a whore...no such thing, and he can't provide you with a link.

The posts where you repeatedly slurred my mother WERE removed by the moderator, sir, and you know it. If a call to civility gets you this angry, then so be it. I can't help you. Just stop hunting me down and posting rude things to me (as you once bragged is so easy to do). But it is really not that important, my friend. And I see it does no good to ask you to maintain the level of civility and decency I once got you to rise up to. Anyway, sir, have a good day.

If I remember correctly you started by attacking Luis ethnicity. Luis responded by saying your mother worked at the border. You took that to mean that he called your mother a whore. I don't think he said that to you before you started attacking Luis ethnicity. He said it only after you attacked his ethnicity. Then a huge flame war started but then it stopped after both of you apologized. Maybe you were angry over something else Luis said. I don't know nor do I care. All I know is you guys have to calm down and just discuss the facts civilly without getting personal again. If that is impossible for anyone of you to do then just do not respond to one another. Discuss the facts with other people other then yourselves without ever mentioning anything the other said. This can help avoid anymore conflicts in the future between you 2 guys.

I hate to say it

No you don't . I've never insulted your country and you even manage to bring in penis envy , of all things and that in it's self is an indication more of your problem than any in my country.

The whole basis of yours and others argument is that the First Amendment protects your free speech. My point to you and others is that like Canada's right to Free Speech , your First Amendment is not absolute.

http://faculty.ncwc.edu/toconnor/410/410lect08.htm

the First Amendment is about protecting the public good rather than individual freedom. Freedom of speech in America has NEVER been absolute. Ever since The Alien and Sedition Act of 1798, there have been a number of laws restricting scandalous, malicious, inflammatory or false utterances, particularly any attempting to defame or bring down the government, or help its enemies.

The following areas have NEVER been protected by the Constitution. There are NO barriers to government interference or regulation. The ONLY constraints on government are that officials must be engaged in a legitimate purpose (doing their duty) , the law to be enforced must not be too broad or vague , the law must be content neutral , not intervene before the fact unless extraordinary circumstances exist , and not have a "chilling effect" (which makes people fearful of engaging in legitimate activities). (obscenity , libel, fighting words , nudity). There are in-between categories between free speech and unprotected speech. Generally, governments have a free hand in how they want to go about regulating these areas.( hate speech, internet defamation , commercial speech ).

Take the time to read the link. Zundel has been arrested in Tennessee on INS charges and is being deported to Germany , where they do have extremely harsh hate laws. This court decision is about the intent of the ad purchaser, nothing more and., as I said in an earlier post, test your freedom. Print an identical ad in a local paper and see what happens.

Great summary of the events thus far, but you forgot the dozen or so posts where this individual was talking crap about me to other people.

All this, LONG before I began to respond in kind.

"If that is impossible for anyone of you to do then just do not respond to one another."

Sounds like a plan to me.

But there's also a lesson for those who insist, despite all available evidence to the contrary, on seeing the work of 9/11 as just that of a few terrorists. They fail to recognize that Islam has been waging war against the West well before 9/11 and that it will continue to do so until we submit to their rule.


I pray that day will never come, and it has not so far. Just like Communism failed, I think Islam will too in its latest attempt to subdue the West. But it should also be clear, given what is being said in our own nation's prisons, that much damage could be done before we can see the light at the end of the tunnel.

They have been at war with human civilization since their bloody birth in the seventh century. There have been relatively quiet periods, where they have restricted themselves to quietly murdering, oppressing and enslaving those they could find who were more primitive than they. But the vast wealth we have given them for the oil we developed for them has given them new hope for a bloody conquest of the world.

This is not going to be over for a long time, if ever.

I think it bears mentioning that the moderators of this forum also apparently consider certain parts of the Bible to be "hate speech". A short time ago, there was a thread whose article talked about someone looking to "cure homosexuality" or some such. One poster replied, "There's already a cure, and it's in Leviticus." The post was pulled.

I tell you what, I'll create a temporary password for David1, which allows him to see any post that I have writen, or any post directed at me by logging on as me.

Then he can tell me where that post is, once he finds it, I will gladly apologize.

It's a well-known FR glitch that's available to you as well by the way, so, come to think of it, you can simply cut and paste it back on the thread, and I will apologize both to you, and your sainted mother.

I'll wait.

Luis, you're wasting your time. This article was posted to this thread two days ago, at which time I made basically the exact same point you are (about the issue not being the Bible, but the advertisement and the intent behind it).

All this joker has done is repeat the same disinformation on another thread.

In the meantime, I will feel free to quote any part of the Bible I see fit, at any time.

I will apologize both to you, and your sainted mother.

Why be so sarcastic, man? I never said she was a saint, but she is a sweet old lady and a good faithful wife and mother to all of her seven children. I am grateful for her and know that I won't have her around much longer.

Back when I was in school (even all the way through college) one subject of villification was absolutely off limits. That was the other guy's mother. Nobody did that, even WITH plausible deniability, which would have been considered an act of shameful cowardice. But I grew up in very a high class little town in the midwest. When I moved to southern Arizona, I was shocked and appalled by the trashy, low class behavior I encountered on a regular basis. I guess different things matter in different places. I suppose that I shouldn't let it bother me so, but, even after all these years, it still does.

Quit talking freely, the speech police will come get you.

Thanks for the post.
