did you ever think maybe it was hate speech? calling someone a fag and then telling them it's unnatural and they can't marry IS hate speech, maybe what they were saying about other religions such as Mormonism was hate speech because i didn't see what they said when they were preaching or whatever they were doing. I say this because i read on a forum once (if you ask me to link it i will but i need to find it again) about a person who wrote notes to a Pagan telling them they were going to hell and constantly tormented the poor girl until police were called and the person posting said that she was being intolerant because she didn't believe what she did.

Well, i don't agree with what the Christian girl did or said, but it's true.
The witch is going to hell. (If she doesnt accept Jesus)


and you are quite welcome to think that but things like that girl did makes me a little skeptical about the post at the top though that would be easily changed if i saw some quotes of what the church minister said that got the church shut down.

Yea, Canada is getting incredibly insane and stupid with their so-called "hate speech" laws. Pretty soon you won't be able to say anything in Canada that offends anyone without getting arrested. People should be allowed to criticize other religions.

Being critical of the government is probably hate speech too because you might hurt the politicians' feelings!

No, I didn't hear about that one but it doesn't surprise me. Most of what I've been reading about is people getting hit for criticizing militant Islam and stuff.

The thing is, these kinds of bans on free speech always start out with bans against politically unpopular things like Scientology and saying that it's wrong to be gay or something, but they always get worse and worse until you can't be critical of the government.

Scientology is worse than just a money-sucking cult it stops people from getting much needed medication and also has killed many people, a short check on the internet will reveal testimonies from ex-members and mysterious circumstances around the disappearance of other ex-members, Scientology is dangerous.

Awesome, Canada finally more into saving cultures than staying on 1 thing.. Christianity Free! Multi more!
Christianity is no longer going to take over the world... More Ideas less same ideas. There's always a reason for this.

It's wrong for them to shut it down. It's not right to shut something down for their doctrine, while they let groups who teach other doctrines (like pro gay movements and groups) to exist.

Go back to 4chan Anon. I agree with you that the CO$ is like that. I have a problem with censorship though.


i am not Anon but there are certain things that shouldn't be allowed, just like we wouldn't let a corporation hunt down and ridicule ex-employees and spread lies about them, so why should we let a cult do it even worse they severely hurt people or even kill them in some cases.

yes it would be wrong to shut them down for their doctrine (which they might have done i don't know how "hateful" their speech was) but how is a pro-gay movement (aka getting equal rights for gays) even close to the same as some of the things in the bible. Unless there is some pro-gay movement i haven't heard of trying to make everyone gay then i apologize but i really don't think there is one.

I am just showing an example. Some people think the homosexual life style is wrong, and they are entitled to their opinion. But when these groups go around and impose it and indoctrinate people that their lifestyle is acceptable, they are basically doing the same thing as the Christian group (if not worse) I hope you are all mature enough to know that I don't see all gay people that way. But the fact is, if groups exist that indoctrinate others, you can't pick and choose who gets to do it without infringing on human free speech rights. You can't pick and choose and still be free. Either all stay or none do. Of course it is different if the groups are violent, but these aren't.
