Edmonton gay activist Rob Wells has decided perhaps that Catholic Insight Magazine is too small a fry for his efforts to make Canada over in his image.
Now he has decided to take on Ezra Levant.
Don't mess with the EZ! Prepare to become a laughingstock during your 15-minutes of worldwide fame. People are already laughing across North America.Ezra has dubbed him the Fred Phelps of Canada!
Wells is pretty much the same, but without the noble past. And he switches Phelps’s routine around a little: he protests outside churches, for months on end, slandering Catholics. He actually dresses his vehicle with anti-Christian hate messages, equating Catholics with Nazis, and drives around looking for people to offend. I wouldn't be surprised if he does funerals, like Phelps does. Come to think of it, Wells could use the same posters as Phelps, with just a little re-arranging: “Fags hate God”. But that’s probably not vile enough for Wells, the garbage-mouthed fool who thought the bumper sticker “F*CK HARPER” was the height of political eloquence.
The Fred Phelps of Canada? Heh heh heh. Glad I had finished my coffee by the time I read Ezra's post, or I would have splattered my key board with a full snort.
But no matter how funny Ezra can make this, what Rob Wells is doing is dangerous to freedom. Ezra writes:
Even though the gay rights group EGALE disagreed vehemently with Boissoin's letter, they defended his freedom to write it. Rob Wells' actions have probably generated more hatred towards gay activists than Boisson's letter ever did. In fact, many Christians shrank from Boisson's strong and perhaps intemperate language. But Rob Wells actions may make many Canadians wonder if there's more than a grain of truth in what Boissoin is saying. That's Rob Wells fault. Not Boissoin's. If Wells hadn't filed all his complaints, the letter would have caused a flurry of debate in Red Deer, Alberta and nothing more.
Wells is a favourite of the CHRC. He has used the CHRC to harass the Christian Heritage Party. And he was the complainant against Fr. Alphonse de Valk and Catholic Insight magazine, that drained them of $20,000 in legal fees. That complaint was dismissed by the CHRC when they started getting political heat over it, but Wells is now appealing that dismissal.
Between making little Catholic children cry at church and filing nuisance suits, where does the man find the time? His complaint against me is rooted in my recent republication of Rev. Stephen Boissoin’s editorial column in the Red Deer Advocate several years ago. That was the column in which Rev. Boissoin expressed his Christian opposition to gay rights – and it resulted in a complaint filed against him at the Alberta HRC. After five grueling years of bureaucratic bullying, Rev. Boissoin was sentenced to a $7,000 fine, a lifetime ban against giving any public sermons that were “disparaging” to gay rights (he was also banned from sending private e-mails about the subject) and he was actually ordered to publicly renounce his religious beliefs on the subject. Seriously – read the sentence here for yourself if you can't believe it
Thankfully, Wells is not representative of the freedom-of-speech-respecting gay activists I have met in Ottawa, just as Elmo's sock puppets are not representative of freedom-of-speech-respecting Muslims. But because of human rights commissions, he has far more power than he deserves.
I’m disgusted with Rob Wells – he’s just as despicable as Fred Phelps. But he’s just an individual bigot, and he's got the freedom to utter his filthy speech. What’s truly appalling, though, is how he’s turned the CHRC into his personal anti-Christian inquisition – going after the Christian Heritage Party, Rev. Boissoin and Fr. de Valk. Without the CHRC’s aid and comfort, Wells would still be driving around Edmonton in his hatemobile, a pitiful, angry, junior Fred Phelps. But, thanks to Jennifer Lynch and the rest of the team at the CHRC, the taxpayers of Canada and the laws of Canada have been hijacked, yet again.
Ezra has republished Stephen Boissoin's letter in full.
As an act of civil disobedience based on principles of freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of the press (derived from our Judeo-Christian Western civilization that many complainants seem to hate), and in protest against the abuses of illiberal human rights commissions who are being used by anti-Christian complainants like Rob Wells, I join Ezra and other bloggers in republishing Stephen Boissoin's letter today. I believe in a Canada where Rob Wells is free to express his anti-Christian hatred but not in a Canada where he is free to use the power of the state to crush people who disagree with him.
I am a free Canadian, free not because the state says I am, but because I am made in the image and likeness of God and my rights are inherent in my God-given human dignity. My rights come from God and not the state. I respect the rights and freedoms of gays and everyone else who disagree with me. But none of us will have any freedoms if we do not take a stand and rid ourselves of these illiberal, anti-Western, Marx-inspired commissions. Let's take Canada back for freedom.
Here's Boissoin's letter.
Homosexual Agenda Wicked
The following is not intended for those who are suffering from an unwanted sexual identity crisis. For you, I have understanding, care, compassion and tolerance. I sympathize with you and offer you my love and fellowship. I prayerfully beseech you to seek help, and I assure you that your present enslavement to homosexuality can be remedied. Many outspoken, former homosexuals are free today.
Instead, this is aimed precisely at every individual that in any way supports the homosexual machine that has been mercilessly gaining ground in our society since the 1960s. I cannot pity you any longer and remain inactive. You have caused far too much damage.
My banner has now been raised and war has been declared so as to defend the precious sanctity of our innocent children and youth, that you so eagerly toil, day and night, to consume. With me stand the greatest weapons that you have encountered to date - God and the "Moral Majority." Know this, we will defeat you, then heal the damage that you have caused. Modern society has become dispassionate to the cause of righteousness. Many people are so apathetic and desensitized today that they cannot even accurately define the term "morality."
The masses have dug in and continue to excuse their failure to stand against horrendous atrocities such as the aggressive propagation of homo- and bisexuality. Inexcusable justifications such as, "I'm just not sure where the truth lies," or "If they don't affect me then I don't care what they do," abound from the lips of the quantifiable majority.
Face the facts, it is affecting you. Like it or not, every professing heterosexual is have their future aggressively chopped at the roots.
Edmund Burke's observation that, "All that is required for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing," has been confirmed time and time again. From kindergarten class on, our children, your grandchildren are being strategically targeted, psychologically abused and brainwashed by homosexual and pro-homosexual educators.
Our children are being victimized by repugnant and premeditated strategies, aimed at desensitizing and eventually recruiting our young into their camps. Think about it, children as young as five and six years of age are being subjected to psychologically and physiologically damaging pro-homosexual literature and guidance in the public school system; all under the fraudulent guise of equal rights.
Your children are being warped into believing that same-sex families are acceptable; that men kissing men is appropriate.
Your teenagers are being instructed on how to perform so-called safe same gender oral and anal sex and at the same time being told that it is normal, natural and even productive. Will your child be the next victim that tests homosexuality positive?
Come on people, wake up! It's time to stand together and take whatever steps are necessary to reverse the wickedness that our lethargy has authorized to spawn. Where homosexuality flourishes, all manner of wickedness abounds.
Regardless of what you hear, the militant homosexual agenda isn't rooted in protecting homosexuals from "gay bashing." The agenda is clearly about homosexual activists that include, teachers, politicians, lawyers, Supreme Court judges, and God forbid, even so-called ministers, who are all determined to gain complete equality in our nation and even worse, our world.
Don't allow yourself to be deceived any longer. These activists are not morally upright citizens, concerned about the best interests of our society. They are perverse, self-centered and morally deprived individuals who are spreading their psychological disease into every area of our lives. Homosexual rights activists and those that defend them, are just as immoral as the pedophiles, drug dealers and pimps that plague our communities.
The homosexual agenda is not gaining ground because it is morally backed. It is gaining ground simply because you, Mr. and Mrs. Heterosexual, do nothing to stop it. It is only a matter of time before some of these morally bankrupt individuals such as those involved with NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Lovers Association, will achieve their goal to have sexual relations with children and assert that it is a matter of free choice and claim that we are intolerant bigots not to accept it.
If you are reading this and think that this is alarmist, then I simply ask you this: how bad do things have to become before you will get involved? It's time to start taking back what the enemy has taken from you. The safety and future of our children is at stake.
Rev. Stephen Boissoin
