Canadian Human Rights Commission: Censorship Enforcers
The Bible ruled “HATE” according to the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal
What was posted on the Internet:
Quote: Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
Quote: If a man lies with man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
Canadian Human Rights Tribunal Ruling:
Ms. Beaumont claimed, during her testimony, that she based this comment on her interpretation of a passage in the Bible, adding that she did not care if Jews would be offended by her ideas. However, irrespective of whether she “cares” or not, s. 13 of the Act dictates that the repeated communication via the Internet of matter that is likely to expose targeted groups to hatred or contempt constitutes a discriminatory practice. Whether the person communicating the matter was in fact its author is immaterial. The mere act of communicating the material or causing its communication attracts liability under the Act.
CHRT Decision: Warman v. Beaumont, Oct 26, 2007, Para 68
Testimony of Richard Warman on the Bible
CHAIRPERSON (Member Hadjis): Mr. Warman, do you see any problem with the fact that the Bible was cited in those web pages that you -- the extracts of which you entered into evidence yesterday?
MR. (Richard) WARMAN: The context in which it was cited and the surrounding material led me to believe that it should be included in a complaint pursuant to section 13 of the Canadian Human Rights Act.

Stephen Harper (Prime Minister of Canada):
"Human Rights Commissions, as they are evolving, are an attack on our fundamental freedoms and the basic existence of a democratic society…It is in fact totalitarianism. I find this is very scary stuff."
(BC Report Newsmagazine, January 11, 1999)
What is “Section 13” of the Canadian Human Rights Act?
"Section 13" is Canada's shameful internet censorship legislation. It makes it a “discriminatory practice” of the Canadian Human Rights Act "for a person or a group of persons acting in concert to communicate ... any matter that is likely to expose a person or persons to hatred or contempt ... " against a host of privileged groups. Such as race, sex, sexual orientation, religion, etc.
“Contempt” is so vague it can literally cover almost all forms of criticism. According to past Tribunal ruling, it is irrelevant if what was stated is 100% true, it only matters if someone's feelings were allegedly hurt. The head Internet investigator for the CHRC, when asked about Freedom of Speech testified that: "Freedom of speech is an American concept, so I don't give it any value."
If found guilty of a Section 13 violation:
*Permanent (lifetime) speech ban will be registered with the Federal Court. If found in violation could face up to 5 years in prison
*Fines of up to $50,000 per named respondent
