Persecution Bases on Sexual Morality

When my brother-in-law was in the Lutheran seminary eighteen year ago, he said that in the future Christians would be persecuted based on their sexual morality. Gay rights would take precedence over religious freedom. Anyone teaching that practicing homosexuality is immoral will be legally charged with hate crimes. He said this eighteen years ago, and it is coming true today.

In Canada we have the Canadian Human Rights Commission and a provincial commission for each province except British Columbia. These commissions are empowered by Canadian law to investigate allegations of offensive speech. Once their investigation is completed, these cases are brought before the respective human rights tribunal for adjudication. In British Columbia, allegations of offensive speech are brought directly to the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal.
