Because We Believe In A Society Where Freedom Is More Important Than Hurt Feelings

...We support freedom of speech and oppose "human rights" commissions:
Human rights censorship laws are so vague, they become nothing more than the expression of the personal whims of the human rights commission enforcers. It's quite revealing. Canadian censors have persecuted Mark Harding, a Christian pastor concerned about Islam being taught in public schools.

Human rights commissions have gone after Father Alphonse de Valk, a 70-something Catholic priest in Toronto.

They investigated Calgary Bishop Fred Henry because he wrote a pastoral letter against gay marriage.

They hunted down the Christian Heritage Party. They convicted Rev. Stephen Boissoin of Red Deer, Alta., and subjected him to a lifetime ban on giving public sermons, or even writing private e-mails, criticizing gay marriage. The conviction was overturned in 2009.

What do these victims have in common? Pastor, priest, reverend, bishop, Christian party. Canada's human rights censors aren't declaring war on hate. They are declaring war on Christianity. Scratch a human rights commission, find an anti-Christian bigot.
Well said. Ezra Levant nails it, as always.
