Canada continues to treat the Bible as hate speech

From the Baptist Press:

A Catholic bishop in Canada is under investigation by a government agency for condemning "gay marriage," and American conservatives say such infringements on religious freedom could be headed to the U.S.

The bishop, Fred Henry of Calgary, is being investigated by the Alberta Human Rights Commission for comments he made about homosexuality in both a letter to parishioners and a Calgary Sun newspaper column. Two homosexuals filed the complaints.

In the newspaper column, which stated basic Christian doctrine, Henry wrote, among other things, "Since homosexuality, adultery, prostitution and pornography undermine the foundations of the family, the basis of society, then the State must use its coercive power to proscribe or curtail them in the interests of the common good." He also argued that behind the push for "gay marriage" is a desire to have society accept homosexuality.

Canada is a good model of what happens when Liberal idiocy takes over.

Carol Johnson, one of the homosexuals who filed a complaint, said she was concerned Henry's letter and column would expose homosexuals to "hatred or contempt."

"These remarks are particularly dangerous when made by a person in a position of trust and authority," Johnson wrote in her complaint.

And isn't her and the Canadian government's reaction, basically, holding Christians up as targets of hatred and contempt. The Bishop isn't calling for making homosexuality illegal, just fighting against government endorsement of it. But the homosexual activists in Canada are winning the battle to have Christianity declared illegal.
