Religious Persecution in Canada

And an incredible attack on free speech: “In a decision that foreshadows the possible fate of Fr. Alphonse de Valk, Canada’s leading pro-life voice among Catholic clergy, the Alberta Human Rights Tribunal has forbidden evangelical pastor Stephen Boisson from expressing his moral opposition to homosexuality.”

In America, despite many threats to the separation of Church and State and the freedom of people to worship, we are still blessed to have relative religious liberty, compared even to our fellow Westerners. This is indeed one of the greatest legacies of the American Revolutionary tradition. Too bad American example on this is less compelling to a world that sees the war on terror as a religious crusade.
