Quebec ‘hate speech’ law will target “people who would write against … the Islamic religion”

"Human Rights Commission (QHRC), Jacques Frémont, has been quoted saying that he would use the new powers to target "people who would write against … the Islamic religion … on a website or on a Facebook page."

The law would allow the QHRC to "apply for a court order requiring [alleged hate speech] to cease" and would further impose a fine up to $10,000 if "a person has engaged in or disseminated such speech". The exact monetary value of the fine would be determined by the Human Rights Tribunal.

"The OIC desperately wants to see criticism of Islam criminalised globally, and too many 'useful idiots' in the West buy into their perversion of 'human rights' language to achieve this sinister aim. In August a senior Saudi official said that free expression was an 'abuse of religious rights'. The West must not be lazy in resisting this; or worse, compliant, as this piece of legislation is. Religions shouldn't have rights, and religious believers have no 'right' to remain unoffended by satire, criticism or ridicule."

This isn't anything new. Islam just doesn't like human rights.

It's the Humans Rights Commission in Quebec, not Islam. They should have written as 'against any and all religious faiths'.

I feel like someone watched "This Week in Stupid."

Either way, this is just religion being religion! I imagine it will be shot down sooner or later. Stuff can only bend so much until it breaks.

My two cents.

I never get why liberals love bashing Christianity but defend Islam.

Irreligious liberals dislike Christianity because it's simply closer to home. Most of us have even less patience for Islam.

I'm surprised this came out of Quebec and it's not in French.

Something that blatantly against freedom of speech and human rights will go down eventually. Nothing really to worry about though I wonder who thought that was a good idea.

Personally, I bash all religions. They exist for one reason only, to control the masses.

Islam is a terrorist organization, but not all Muslims are terrorists.

Hopefully this will blow over, but you never know. It is quite perplexing to me how some folks bash all religions except for atheism.
