A couple of years back, the Reverend Stephen Boissoin committed the crime of writing a letter to a local newspaper objecting to various aspects of “the homosexual agenda”. The Alberta “Human Rights” Tribunal convicted him of this crime and imposed a lifetime speech ban preventing him, in essence, from saying anything about homosexuality in public or private ever again anywhere for the rest of his life.
The Court of Queen’s Bench in Alberta has now struck down this outrageous decision. (…)
the Court of Queen’s Bench decision (not to mention its reference to yours truly) would have been less likely before the campaign to restore freedom of speech up north. The cravenness of the politicians is depressing, but Ezra and I and a few others have helped to change the climate – and, for the moment, rendered these disgusting laws unenforceable.
I’m getting lots of emails asking me why I haven’t posted anything on this decision from a few days ago.
Why should I be thrilled that some dude in a high chair and a black robe has been sufficiently cowed by people like me bitching at him, that he’s now going to “grant” us something that is rightfully ours anyway?
Ooooh! Let’s celebrate this all-powerful unelected Wizard of Oz’s magnanimous wonderfulness!
After thousands of manhours a bunch of us spent bitching and moaning and getting sued/fired/called names for our troubles, some judge got the hint and kissed the boo-boo and made it all go away!
Wow, The System Works!
The judge in Boisson just ruled:
Remarks by a youth pastor who wrote about declaring war on the “homosexual machine” were “jarring, offensive, bewildering, puerile, nonsensical and insulting,” but not hateful or extreme, an Alberta judge ruled on Thursday.
Hey, glad he cleared THAT up, aren’t you? The hell?
This. Is. All. Bullshit.
And your little dog, too.
