Don’t get me wrong: I don’t think that the filth in Music World should be illegal. I don’t think it quite rises to the criminal code standard of hate speech; I don’t think it quite meets the test of incitement to murder. But I wonder if, instead of saying “Kill the Christian”, it said “Kill the Jews” or “Kill the Blacks” or “Kill the gays”. You could imagine Comrade Andreachuk going nuclear. Well, no need to imagine — just look at what she did to Rev. Boissoin for merely preaching peacefully.
(…) I am unaware of a single non-Christian ever being convicted of a hate speech offense — certainly none have been at the federal CHRC. But the HRCs pick on Christians like a bully pulling the wings off of flies, roughing up Toronto’s Fr. Alphonse de Valk; the Christian Heritage Party; Calgary’s Bishop Fred Henry; and, no doubt, a dozen other martyrs who quietly paid off their tormentors with some sort of plea bargain.
But this case, Johnson vs. Music World, is different even than the HRCs’ persecution of Christians. It’s a declaration, in black and white that it is legally impossible for a Christian to be discriminated against. You can chant “Kill the Christian”, and it’s not “hate speech”. If you can say that, you can say anything.
You can read all about the cases against Fr. de Valk, Bishop Henry, Rev. Stephen Boisson and others in my book The Tyranny of Nice: How Canada crushes freedom in the name of human rights — and why it matters to Americans.
