Anti-gay speaker defended by the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association

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)

    LaBarbera is also fully backed and endorsed by Bill Whatcott — the man that forced Canada to draw the line between free speech and hate propaganda. Today Whatcott hides behind other deliverers of hate including LaBarbera. LaBarbera, being endorsed by Whatcott is enough evidence that his communications willinfringe and cross the line on what Canada considers free speech and enter into the realm of hate speech.

    Whatcotts endorsement including: “Here is the flyer I mass distributed. It is not nearly as bombastic as my usual flyers”

    how is that the intolerance group is allowed to spue their views about the American as a hater and yet he cant spue his views. I don’t get the argument – while you get the irony. Last time I checked free speech meant JUST that FREE. Free to speak and free not to listen. But to cast stones at the one you believe is throwing them leads to all this attention.
