Update: April 11, 2014, 5:00 p.m. Eastern – Peter LaBarbera tweets that Canadian customs officials have reversed course and will now allow him entry into Canada.

EXCLUSIVE — In a serious violation of freedom of speech and conscience, American social conservative leader Peter LaBarbera has been denied entry into Canada.

LaBarbera’s trip to Canada for a speaking engagement has been vociferously opposed by Canadian pro-homosexual activists, who mounted a campaign to force the annual conference of the Saskatchewan Pro-life Association to withdraw LaBarbera’s invitation.

“I expected this would happen,” said LaBarbera, founder and president of Americans for Truth about Homosexuality (AFTAH).  “A group called ‘Intolerance Free Weyburn’ has been lobbying the Ministry of Public Safety to block my entry into Canada ever since they found out I had been invited to speak.”

After being detained briefly by the Canadian Border Services Agency in Regina International Airport, Saskatchewan, LaBarbera was released into the custody of Bill Whatcott, a prominent Canadian pro-traditional morals activist.

LaBarbera’s appeal of the CBSA decision is scheduled to be heard at noon, Saskatchewan time, by Penelope Ulmer, the superintendent for the CBSA at the Regina airport.

Whatcott is asking supporters to pray, and to “call Chris Alexander, Minister of Education and let him know Christians like Peter who preach truth, and certainly not so-called “hate” should be allowed into Canada to share his wisdom with Canadians.”  Whatcott said Alexander’s email address is: chris.alexander@parl.gc.ca, and his phone number is 613-995-8042.

LaBarbera told BarbWire that Canadian border agents met him at the airport when his flight arrived late Thursday night and searched him thoroughly.

“Upon entry into Canadian Customs, all my belongings were searched, inc. my laptop + phone, to gather info for ‘Hate Propaganda’ evidence,” LaBarbera tweeted early Friday morning.

LaBarbera, a prominent leader in the movement to defend traditional marriage in the United States, said he is scheduled to speak on Saturday in Weyburn “about the interconnections between the pro-abortion and the gay agendas.”

LaBarbera said he was carrying several books critical of the homosexualist movement in the United States, including Dr. Michael Brown’s book, A Queer Thing Happened to America.  “I was planning to refer to the books during my speech,” LaBarbera said.

“[I]nitial judgment by Canadian Border Security is to NOT allow me to enter Canada based on alleged viol. of ‘hate propaganda’ law,” wrote LaBarbera in a followup tweet.

LaBarbera told BarbWire that Canadian border agent Darren Bannick informed him that he had discovered evidence that LaBarbera was “targeting” an “identifiable” group of people based on their “sexual orientation.”  According to LaBarbera, “Bannick referred specifically to the ‘About’ section on the AFTAH website.”

The website’s “About” section describes AFTAH as “a national organization devoted exclusively to exposing and countering the homosexual activist agenda.”

Exposure of the moral and health hazards of homosexual behavior, LaBarbera’s principal emphasis at AFTAH, is considered hate speech in Canada.  American radio ministries have been forced to censor their teachings about the sinful nature of homosexual activity in their Canadian-based broadcasts.

“Canada has no respect for freedom of speech at all,” Whatcott told BarbWire.  “Even our schools teach explicitly against freedom of speech. Peter hasn’t done anything illegal.  All the illegal activity is from the homosexual activists.  It’s illegal to call people names in Canada, and they’ve violated the law a thousand times.

“I’ve been called ‘Canada’s premier homophobe,’ and ‘Canada’s leading hatemonger,’ because I preach the Gospel. I don’t advocate violence against gays, and I believe gays can be redeemed.”

According to Whatcott, “saying gays aren’t born that way, and saying homosexual behavior is sinful, is a crime in Canada.”

LaBarbera joked, “I’m not sure the Obama administration will allow me to return to the United States.  I may have to ask for asylum in Moscow.”

            An AIDS infected, drug addled, naked freak of any sexual orientation is superior to anti-American trash like you. I suppose you don’t bear too much responsibility for the fact that you are an inbred hick, though. That would be the fault of your sister/mama.

            How would he feel about the life you are living right now? Are you following the Bible word for word? Or are just persecuting people for ignoring some parts that we now consider to be outdated. Remember, according to the Bible, if you aren’t sacrificing animals to God, then you are not really praying.

          • Michael Hampton

            So tell me, do you follow every single rule in the Bible? Do you not cut your hair and shut yourself off from society when you get your period? No? Then you are a moron AND a hypocrite.

      Canada is neck deep in trash already. It’s a small wonder that this guy didn’t burst into flames soon as he landed here. It’s honorable that he still tries to reach out to people with the truth, but the fact is the culture was is over and the good guys lost. There’s nothing we can do to stop the secular, liberal, progressive movement except to wait and see what happens when the Muslim community breeds themselves into positions of power.

      • sagecreek

        Hey, homophobia AND racism in one sentence. TWO POINTS.

  • John

    *Americans for Truth About Homosexuality

    Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) was formed as a part-time venture in 1996 by long-time gay-basher Peter LaBarbera, who reorganized it in 2006 as a much more serious and influential, if often vicious, operation.

    A one-time reporter for the conservative Washington Times, LaBarbera has been an energetic campaigner against “the radical homosexual agenda” since at least 1993, when he launched The Lambda Report, which claimed to do first-hand reporting to expose its gay enemies. Over the years, he has been an official with Accuracy in Media, Concerned Women for America, the Family Research Council and the Illinois Family Institute (see below for the last three). He left the Illinois Family Institute, where he’d been executive director, in 2006.

    AFTAH is notable for its posting of the utterly discredited work of Paul Cameron (of the Family Research Institute; see below), who has claimed that gays and lesbians live vastly shorter lives than heterosexuals. Among the Cameron propaganda published by AFTAH are 2007 claims that gays and lesbians in Norway and Denmark live 24 fewer years than heterosexuals. Reviewing that claim, Danish epidemiologist Morten Frisch found that it had no scientific basis. LaBarbera himself, in 2002, compared the alleged dangers of homosexuality to those of “smoking, alcohol and drug abuse.” Similarly, AFTAH’s website carries essays describing homosexuality as a “lethal behavior addiction,” a “dangerous” practice that is “neither normal nor benign.”

    In 2007, LaBarbera claimed there was “a disproportionate incidence of pedophilia” among gay men — yet another false assertion. The same year, he posted an open letter to the Lithuanian people from long-time gay-basher Scott Lively (see Abiding Truth Ministries, above), who has made a series of false claims about gays running the German Nazi Party. In the piece posted to the AFTAH website, Lively said homosexuals are trying to take away free speech from all opponents of gays and to silence all religious opinions on the matter.

    The AFTAH site repeats bogus claims like the idea that a proposed bill in California would “promote cross-dressing, sex-change operations, bisexuality and homosexuality” to kindergartners and other children. And it ran an essay that falsely asserted that hate crime laws would “restrict our speech.”

    • 19gundog43

      What AFTAH states are proven facts whether you clowns want to face it or not. Per capita homosexual pedophilia, drug abuse, domestic violence, and disease far outdistances heterosexuals. Homosexually is a deathstyle NOT a lifestyle! Truth hurts doesn’t it Cupcake.

      • John

        Nopers. Just anti gay garbage with no science to back it up. Try again sugar!

      • Michael Hampton

        Um…no. Actually most of what appears on their press releases is a mass of horrible lies and half-truths.

      • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ Plum Dumpling

        Source or it did not happen.

    • RhondaStar

      Unfortunately, we have the ability to check into your claims. And we know that you are lying. Homosexuals have four choices when confronted with the truth: 1. Believe and repent, 2. Get angry and attack, 3. Lie and deceive others, 4.) A mixture of options 2 and 3. You have obviously chosen #4.

      • Lamont Cranston

        See, the thing about believing and repenting is it might lead me to having to spend eternity around filth like you. I’ll do anything necessary to avoid that.

        • RhondaStar

          You have just chosen option # 2 on the list. And figuratively speaking, homosexuality usually involves a love affair with #2.

          • Lamont Cranston

            Honey, do the rest of the world a favor, please. Next time you bathe, no matter how far in the future that might be, scrub a little harder “down there”. The smell is so bad it permeates the internet!

          • chillwallball

            Yes, because a deity that created the ENTIRE UNIVERSE cares about what the talking apes on the tiny blue planet do with their genitals.

          • Michael Hampton

            Um…what exactly are you doing? You are attacking us! You stupid woman. Now, go tell your husband that you were using the computer again. After all, he is king of your household and you have no rights.

      • John

        Everything posted is verifiable. No lies. No attack. Just putting it out there for all to see.

        • RhondaStar

          And we have verified it to be categorically false.

          • John

            citations and proof or are you just another liar for god?

          • RhondaStar

            I used to waste my time providing proof. But nothing will convince the reprobate…except the Holy Spirit of God.

          • John

            There is no proof and there is no god.

          • RhondaStar

            Oh, thanks for reminding me, I forgot that Denial is another popular response to the truth. I’ll add that to my list in the future.

          • 19gundog43

            “There is no proof and there is no god.” Ever heard of a double negative??? You have proof there isn’t genus??? Better hope your right Skippy or you are really screwed!!

            Living the good life here in Texas without a worry or a care! Have a great day sugar bear!

          • S_O_T_A

            Rhonda, this is probably the most correct thing on this thread. If someone thinks homosexuality is OK, then truth is probably nothing they are interested in. It’s pointless to reason.

          • RhondaStar

            Exactly right. If anyone is so warped to think that abusing the sewer system of the human body is an expression of “love,” then there’s no human logic that will ever register with them…until they are transformed by the grace of God

          • S_O_T_A

            God bless you!

          • shepetgene

            That’s an unfair and rude simplification of a gay male relationship. That is one behavior that not all gay men even engage in. Meanwhile, you’re denying all of the acts of love shared in a relationship outside of the bedroom. Unless of course you’re arguing the only “expression of love” in a male-female couple is penile-vaginal intercourse.

          • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ Plum Dumpling

            Spend a lot of time thinking about the mechanics of gay sex, do you?
            Sounds as though it makes you quite aroused to do that.
            Are you fapping while typing “sewer system?” I bet you are. Fap, fap, fap …

          • sagecreek

            Don’t wanna be gay? Fine, don’t be. But the fact that you are spending this kind of time and effort hating people you don’t even know makes me suspect there’s some interesting dark little things going on inside you.

          • S_O_T_A

            You’re only shedding light on yourself in that you try to use the thing you say you support to accuse me. Ironically, you’re admitting you know homosexuality is wrong!

            The issue is about freedom to speak the truth and live for truth without fearing punishment for that.

          • sagecreek

            No, homophobia is wrong.

            And being a closet case may not be wrong, but it sure isn’t healthy.

          • S_O_T_A

            Homophobia is non-existent. It is a political word dreamed up only to bully people. It also trivialises real phobias.

            But if you really want to claim I am a ‘closet case’, then fine – I was born a homophobe, I used to be quite suicidal about it until I went to counselling and can now proudly and publicly declare my homophobic inclinations without fear of being bullied!
            Will you come to my homophobic pride parade one day?

            Actually, I think secretly you are homophobicphobic, so when are you going to admit your ‘dark little things’ sagecreek?

          • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ Plum Dumpling

            Fairly obvious it is in reaction formation. It is so gay.

      • 19gundog43

        Most just try to bully anyone speaking truth, thinking we will just shut up and go away. NOT gone to happen!!! When confronted with these kind of people I just get energized. When you have facts and truth nothing can stop you. Especially a bunch of sorry homo-Nazis

        • RhondaStar

          Never back down is right.

      • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ Plum Dumpling

        If I am gay, I have a 5th choice. I can get married to my beloved and live happily and ignore you. I love the sound of whackjob tears in the morning.

  • VictorLandry

    Homosexuals are Christophobic. If God doesn’t exist why do they hate him so much. They are petrified He is real.

    • 19gundog43

      They know if they are wrong and we are right they are doomed. What a sad bunch.

    • Theodore Fenton

      I believe you’re referring to atheists.

      • Truth Offends

        Homosexuals who continue to have sex w/ other men also hate God. If homosexuals say they believe in God, either (1) they deliberately sin against Him, or (2) they believe in a god they’ve created in their own imaginations.

        • Persephone Sixty-Six

          I have yet to see any evidence that make your god in specific more valid than any other god. Have fun with your strawman.

          • Truth Offends

            You (a man) hate God because he judges both your sexual desire to have sex with other men, and your desire to dress up like a woman as abominations…and because no matter how hard to suppress the truth that He exists, you know that He does.

          • John

            NOPE

          • Persephone Sixty-Six

            You are wrong. I do not know that your God in specific exists because there is not sufficient evidence for his existence. It’s that simple. I do not hate your god. Do you hate the gods of Hinduism because you do not like their rules? Does such a notion sound rather silly to you?

            What I do dislike, however, is your god’s ridiculous fan club. I’ll illustrate it for you.

            Trekkies do not suicide bomb Star Wars conventions.

            Beliebers do not protest One Direction concerts.

            No Star Wars fan has ever knocked on my door asking me if I have heard the good news about Luke Skywalker.

            No Twilight fan has ever threatened me with the wrath of Edward Cullen because I told them their book was poorly written.

            Warhammer 40K fans are not trying to make the rules and laws listed in
            Imperial Infantry Man’s Handbook part of local or federal government.

            I have never seen Dungeons and Dragons used as a basis for discrimination.

            Marvel Comics fans do not own a considerable portion of the town where I
            reside and force local business and law enforcement alike to bend to
            their will.

            Anime fans do not have a rather constant and annoying presence many US airports.

            Bronies are not insisting that Rainbow Dash is real and that everyone knows it and chooses to ignore it such that they can sin against him.

          The Ancient Roman and Talmudic Definition of Natural Eunuchs presents proof that gay men in ancient times were natural eunuchs, physically intact, capable of procreation yet not interested in women. This truth was codified in Roman law.

          John MacArthur admits
          the link to Lev 18:21-22

          “Judah’s syncretistic worship was reflected in the practice of swearing by the Lord and, at the same time, by Milcom, who may be either the Ammonite deity of 1 Kings 11:5, 33 or Molech, the worship of whom included child sacrifice, astrology and temple prostitution (cf. Lev. 18:21; 2 Kin 17:16; Ezek 23:37; Amos 5:25, 26; Acts 7:40-43).”

          The MacArthur Bible Commentary, John MacArthur, Thomas Nelson Publishers, 2005, p. 1038.
          A MacArthur sermon

          “And the pagans, of course, commonly made eunuchs and many parents even mutilated their children to prepare them for service to the idols. And this was always a Satanic practice.”

          MacArthur continues: “I would just add as a footnote that God offers grace to such people. According to Isaiah 56 verse 3,

          “Neither let the son of a foreigner that hath joined himself to the Lord speak saying, The Lord hath utterly separated me from His people, neither let the eunuch say, Behold I’m a dry tree.”

          In other words, if you’ve done this, you don’t have to be totally despairing,

          “For thus saith the Lord unto the eunuchs that keep My sabbath and choose the things that please Me and take hold of My covenant, even unto them will I give in Mine house and within Mine walls a place and a name better than a name of sons and daughters and I will give them” and I love this, “an everlasting name that shall not be cut off.”

          That’s pretty practical. You may cut some things off, [castration] but you’ll never cut that everlastingname off if they come to Me in faith. So God offers grace to the transsexual or the eunuch.”

          John MacArthur’s online sermon about: the sin of homosexuality. Gay Christian teaching about homosexual eunuchs is historically accurate. We trust that Pastor MacArthur will acknowledge this truth.

        • John

          Says you? Sorry to burst your bubble but there are many of us who have no belief in any gods.

    • Halou

      It is not god that gay people dislike, it is the Christians like Peter LaBarbera who tour foreign countries recommending the enforcement of laws that would have gay people jailed for up to 10 years (Jamaica), 14 years (Southern Nigeria), Life (Uganda). Or herald the works in India, Ethiopia, Croatia, and Russia. Or attempts to roll back changes in Peru, France, Brazil and of all places, Canada.
      The thing that has gay people ‘petrified’ is the pastors and politicians who when asked to balance the existence of gay people in public and the death penalty, go on to say that the death penalty would be the better option. Only suicides and martyrs wants to die.

      • VictorLandry

        You neglected to make any mention of Muslim countries where homosexuals a routinely killed.

        • Halou

          Very true. Many countries, both west and east are also subjected to Shariah and Wahhabi preachers who likewise advocate for anti-gay laws among other things, they are just as bad.

    • http://plumstchili.blogspot.com/ Plum Dumpling

      Jesus has no problem with homosexuality. He is quite understanding.
      YOU HAVE A PROBLEM WITH HOMOSEXUALITY, which means by the way that you are most likely gay.
      God does not have a problem with homosexuality, s/he makes homosexuals.

  • 19gundog43

    Don’t worry America will catch up with Canada regarding denying freedom with the rabid Sodomites whining about every so-called denial of their ‘freedoms”! Disagree with their deathstyle and you are evil and should be shut down. Dream on Cupcakes, many of us are not afraid of your bullying, we will keep speaking truth!!

    • John

      yawn

  • John

    This is awesome! He has already spent time spreading his anti gay hate to Jamaica and his website is based on the discredited work of od several researchers to include Paul Cameron. What a guy….

    • Truth Offends

      homofascist!

      • shepetgene

        Do you have something to offer other than “discourteous” name-calling? At least John is making some point that we should look at who Peter Labarbera is using to support his statements.

        • Truth Offends

          He is a homosexual (supporter of homosexuality) who thinks it’s “awesome!” that an American would be denied entry! into the nation to our north because he had in his possession written material that disagrees with the govt’s position on homosexuality. “Homofascist” is an appropriate term to describe him, and it is a term I choose to use.

          • thisoldspouse

            Indeed, there is no other rational description for it.

          • shepetgene

            Name-calling offering nothing else (regardless of whether or not you agree with the name) doesn’t really lead to anything useful. If I just replied “bigot” to every post you put up, it wouldn’t really do much to further any sort of idea exchange.

          • Truth Offends

            John is not interested in the exchange of ideas. Remember, he thinks it’s “awesome” for governments to PROHIBIT the expression of ideas he disagrees with. Therefore, there would be no point in me adding anything more in my reply to him.

          • shepetgene

            I’m confused, so is your argument “two wrongs make a right”? How about not saying anything in response and writing a useful comment not responding to him?

          • Truth Offends

            I did not do anything wrong.

          • shepetgene

            Other than breaking the posting policy of this website. Discourteous behavior (calling names, rude or insulting statements directed at another user/post). They won’t call you on it (because best I can tell the moderators here do not have the moral integrity to equally apply their rules to both sides) but that doesn’t mean I won’t.

            It’s ironic this site is almost exclusively people making fundamentalist Judeo-Christian moral arguments, and then those same people blatantly disregard moral imperatives when it doesn’t suite them.

          • Truth Offends

            First: God sets the standard of what is “wrong” and what is right; of what is moral and what is “immoral”–not you. And, given your support for homosexuality, it is clear that you do not agree with God’s standards.

            Second: There was nothing “wrong” or “immoral” about the word I chose to use. That one word captures what would otherwise take several words to describe. You may not like that word, but it is the word I will choose to use when I find it appropriate. And it was entirely appropriate in my reply to John.

          • shepetgene

            Seriously? You’re taking the time to argue that name-calling is a productive and appropriate action and worth this much rationalizing effort to condone. Really think about that for a second. You’re working this hard to justify calling someone a nasty name. How do you sit on such a high and mighty moral pedestal of “God’s standards” and then act that way? It’s just sad.

          • Truth Offends

            By simply stating the truth that God sets the moral standards for human behavior does not mean, in any way, that I think I meet those standards (or as you might say “sit on high and mighty pedestal”). God will judge me for the words I speak, just as He will judge everyone. But, like I said, I don’t consider it wrong to use the word “homofascist” when it is a word that accurately describes someone.

          • Truth Offends

            This is why I said that God (not you) sets the moral standards for human behavior:
            You said that what I did was supposedly “wrong,” that the moderators at BarbWire supposedly lack “moral integrity,” and some of those making “fundamentalist Judeo-Christian moral arguments” are supposedly “blatantly disregarding” what you believe are “moral imperatives.”

            Nevertheless, by simply stating the truth that God sets the moral standards for human behavior does not mean, in any way, that I think I meet those standards (or as you might say “sit on high and mighty pedestal”). God will judge me for the words I speak, just as He will judge everyone. But, like I said, I don’t consider it wrong to use a word (that you consider to be “name-calling”) when it is a word that accurately describes someone.

          • Truth Offends

            First: God sets the standard for what is “wrong” and what is right; for what is moral and what is “immoral”–not you. And, given your support for homosexuality, it is clear that you do not agree with God’s standards.

            Second: There was nothing “wrong” or “immoral” about the word I chose to use. That one word captures what

        Supporting something that is patently false and arguing something even after presented with new material in the contrary is different than supporting something before presented with new information. I’m reminded of a Parks and Rec episode where they accuse Leslie of Flip-Flopping. Here is her response: Leslie: “Well, because I learned new information. When I was four I thought that chocolate milk came from brown cows, and then I flip-flopped when I found out that there was something called chocolate syrup.

    • yilley

      Why don’t you look up the use and laws of free speech in the US and Canada before you make a comment like that. The whole situation begs a few questions:
      – if LaBarbera was a pro-homosexual rights advocate carrying books decrying the anti-gay movement, would he still fall under the hate speech according to the border patrol?
      – has someone in authority with the border patrol used a law that was intended to address riot or violence-inducing behavior to enforce his/her own personal opinion of Labarbera’s character or ideas? You don’t have to like or agree with him to realize he has the right to a wrong opinion.
      – would Lababera have been stopped at the Windsor crossing? At an airport in Toronto or Vancouver or Calgary? At the Quebec crossing near Tres Rivieres?
      – Opposition to gay rights would not, by a majority of Americans or Canadians, be considered sedition or hate speech – no one has said ‘kill all gays’ here. Would you be denied at the Canadian border if you were an avid atheist? The Pope? A well-known protagonist for anarchy attending an anarchy convention? Labarbera does not present a physical threat to anyone. His ideas challenge those of the gay rights movement – which now appears to be shielded by police authority. Be watchful of a celebration for this behavior by authorities – they may someday come for you and yours.

  • The Skeptical Chymist

    As much as I dislike Peter LaBarbera’s views, all viewpoints should be permitted to compete in the marketplace of ideas. When that is allowed to occur, his views will lose, as they have been losing throughout the US. Canada should permit him to enter and deliver his speech. It should be well-publicized and made available for all to see. Then, I believe the overwhelming response will be one of disgust.

    I have to admit, though, that the idea of Peter LaBarbera asking for asylum in Moscow is a very attractive one.

            Not as much as God does:

            Romans Chapter 1:

            20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

            21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

            22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

            23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

            24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

            25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

            26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

            27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

            28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

            29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

            30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

            31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

            32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

    We can, and MUST, expose this act by Canada as the MORAL outrage that it is. At the same time, we should be very careful, if we call ourselves conservatives and Christians, to tell the entire story. We need to also report that:
    1. Canada is under NO legal obligation to allow anyone in. If we defend sovereignity here in the US, we must respect it there.
    2. Canada (I believe) is following its (yes misguided and entirely wrong) laws in denying this man entry.

    Let’s call for that country to change its destructive and deluded “anti-hate” laws, which only PROMOTE hatred by denying one side (and ONLY one side) the right to free speech and the ability to promote traditional marriage.

    Let’s call for an end to Canada’s selective law enforcement, stopping only “dangerous” Christians like this man, and totally ignoring that he poses no securtiy threat whatsoever to that nation.

    Let’s NOT try and tell another country that this act was legally wrong, or that they had no right to do it. That is NOT the truth.

    The
    Gay Manifesto
    First Published in Gay Community News, February 15-21, 1987

    We
    shall sodomise your sons, emblems of your feeble masculinity, of your shallow
    dreams and vulgar lies. We shall seduce them in your schools, in your
    dormitories, in your gymnasiums, in your locker rooms, in your sports arenas,
    in your seminaries, in your youth groups, in your movie theater bathrooms, in
    your army bunkhouses, in your truck stops, in your all male clubs, in your
    houses of Congress, wherever men are with men together. Your sons shall become
    our minions and do our bidding. They will be recast in our image. They will
    come to crave and adore us.

    Women,
    you cry for freedom. You say you are no longer satisfied with men; they make
    you unhappy. We, connoisseurs of the masculine face, the masculine physique,
    shall take your men from you then. We will amuse them; we will instruct them;
    we will embrace them when they weep. Women, you say you wish to live with each
    other instead of with men. Then go and be with each other. We shall give your
    men pleasures they have never known because we are foremost men too, and only one
    man knows how to truly please another man; only one man can understand the
    depth and feeling, the mind and body of another man.

    All
    laws banning homosexual activity will be revoked. Instead, legislation shall be
    passed which engenders love between men.

    All
    homosexuals must stand together as brothers; we must be united artistically,
    philosophically, socially, politically and financially. We will triumph only
    when we present a common face to the vicious heterosexual enemy.

    If
    you dare to cry faggot, fairy, queer, at us, we will stab you in your cowardly
    hearts and defile your dead, puny bodies.

    We
    shall write poems of the love between men; we shall stage plays in which man
    openly caresses man; we shall make films about the love between heroic men
    which will replace the cheap, superficial, sentimental, insipid, juvenile,
    heterosexual infatuations presently dominating your cinema screens. We shall
    sculpt statues of beautiful young men, of bold athletes which will be placed in
    your parks, your squares, your plazas. The museums of the world will be filled
    only with paintings of graceful, naked lads.

    Our
    writers and artists will make love between men fashionable and de rigueur, and
    we will succeed because we are adept at setting styles. We will eliminate
    heterosexual liaisons through usage of the devices of wit and ridicule, devices
    which we are skilled in employing.

    We
    will unmask the powerful homosexuals who masquerade as heterosexuals. You will
    be shocked and frightened when you find that your presidents and their sons,
    your industrialists, your senators, your mayors, your generals, your athletes,
    your film stars, your television personalities, your civic leaders, your
    priests are not the safe, familiar, bourgeois, heterosexual figures you assumed
    them to be. We are everywhere; we have infiltrated your ranks. Be careful when
    you speak of homosexuals because we are always among you; we may be sitting
    across the desk from you; we may be sleeping in the same bed with you.

    There
    will be no compromises. We are not middle-class weaklings. Highly intelligent,
    we are the natural aristocrats of the human race, and steely-minded aristocrats
    never settle for less. Those who oppose us will be exiled.

    We
    shall raise vast private armies, as Mishima did, to defeat you. We shall conquer
    the world because warriors inspired by and banded together by homosexual love
    and honor are invincible as were the ancient Greek soldiers.

    The
    family unit-spawning ground of lies, betrayals, mediocrity, hypocrisy and
    violence – will be abolished. The family unit, which only dampens imagination
    and curbs free will, must be eliminated. Perfect boys will be conceived and
    grown in the genetic laboratory. They will be bonded together in communal
    setting, under the control and instruction of homosexual savants.

    All
    churches who condemn us will be closed. Our only gods are handsome young men.
    We adhere to a cult of beauty, moral and esthetic. All that is ugly and vulgar
    and banal will be annihilated. Since we are alienated from middle-class
    heterosexual conventions, we are free to live our lives according to the
    dictates of the pure imagination. For us too much is not enough.

    The
    exquisite society to emerge will be governed by an elite comprised of gay
    poets. One of the major requirements for a position of power in the new society
    of homoeroticism will be indulgence in the Greek passion. Any man contaminated
    with heterosexual lust will be automatically barred from a position of
    influence. All males who insist on remaining stupidly heterosexual will be
    tried in homosexual courts of justice and will become invisible men.

    We
    shall rewrite history, history filled and debased with your heterosexual lies
    and distortions. We shall portray the homosexuality of the great leaders and
    thinkers who have shaped the world. We will demonstrate that homosexuality and
    intelligence and imagination are inextricably linked, and that homosexuality is
    a requirement for true nobility, true beauty in a man.

    We
    shall be victorious because we are fueled with the ferocious bitterness of the
    oppressed who have been forced to play seemingly bit parts in your dumb,
    heterosexual shows throughout the ages. We too are capable of firing guns and
    manning the barricades of the ultimate revolution.

    Tremble,
    hetero swine, when we appear before you without our masks.
