Pastor fined $7,000 for comments on homosexuals

This Candian pastor is being fined for stating the Gospel truth that homosexuality is a sin. And his rights to free speech are being taken away. Is this a harbinger for things to come in the US?

Most disturbingly, says Boissoin, is that the ruling calls for him to "cease publishing in newspapers, by email, on the radio, in public speeches, or on the internet, in future, disparaging remarks about gays and homosexuals."

Boissoin wondered to what extent the right to freedom of expression in Canada will be deteriorated, stating, "I am not allowed to hold on to my views."
The pastor also maintained that his beliefs are founded not on hate or malice, but derive from a personal concern for the family and society rooted not only in faith, but also in science.
"I am not allowed to hold my views, but the Lunds of the world are allowed to bring gay ministers into schools, they are allowed to present scientifically baseless teachings to kids that people are born gay."

Absolutely incredible, is the fact that the 'complaint' is about him expressing his views , which were being expressed AT A TIME OF PUBLIC DISCUSSION about same-sex marriage - before it became law! The nerve of him! He participated in public discussion about proposed legislation!!

This decision comes in the midst of bad publicity about HRC's AROUND THE WORLD! The obtuseness of these people is hard to grasp. (I want to call them stupi, but hey, I'm Canadian and I don't have $7000 to spare...)
