Despite protests from hundreds of members of the public, the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association has defended the views of Peter LaBarbera, President of Americans For Truth Against Homosexuality (AFTAH), according to the CBC.
A petition was initiated by Intolerance Free Weyburn, and the group is also planning a protest during the Pro-Life Association’s convention, at which LaBarbera will be speaking. (CBC)
According to Intolerance Free Weyburn, AFTAH’s mandate is to to oppose “the radical homosexual agenda’ and ‘stand for God-ordained sexuality.” (CBC)
The Southern Poverty Law Centre lists AFTAH as hate group, but according to Pro-Life Association President, Marcy Mallette, “his website is for truth, and that’s not hateful at all.” (CBC)
