Westboro Baptist Comes To Canada

Fri Aug 08, 2008 12:06 am

...and they will be making stops in:

Toronto, Ontario: They will be protesting outside of a theatre with 'The Pastor Phelps Project: A Fundamentalist Cabaret' on stage. Toronto's gay community is planning a counter protest to welcome them.

Manitoba: They will be protesting the funeral of the man who was beheaded on a Greyhound bus last week...I'm not entirely sure why they are protesting here.

Red Deer, Alberta: They will be protesting outside of a theatre that has 'The Laramie Project' on stage.

However, it seems their message will be a bit tame: "They plan to wave placards with slogans like "God hates Canada" and "You're going to hell"...(They will be omitting their more overt anti-gay sayings for fear of being charged under Canada's stronger anti-hate laws)." "They were held for hours and had their picket signs confiscated by Canadian customs agents the last time they tried to enter the country in 1999."

Thanks to ScrubbsYWG for posting this in another thread ( http://www.airliners.net/aviation-fo...ms/non_aviation/read.main/1950709/ ). They will be protesting in Manitoba because:

"...Phelps' daughter, Shirley Phelps-Roper, said about seven church members are expected to come to Winnipeg. "What we're doing is trying to connect dots," Phelps-Roper told the Winnipeg Sun last night. "We're trying to get you to see that your rebellion against the standards of God, your disobedience to the commandments -- your idols, your false gods, your filthy ways have brought wrath upon your head."

These people are nuts - just ignore them. Don't get angry, it just legitimizes their message and encourages them to continue. If everyone (the media included) pretended they were not there, they would go away.

This is bogus. I disagree with their absurd message as much as anyone, but we should only prevent people who have committed (or show clear evidence of planning to commit) actual crimes from entering the country. Not people who we disagree with or who might hurt people's feelings.

Possibly. But you should have to actually commit a hate crime first and be found guilty of it. Stockwell Day and border guards should not have the authority to make these kinds of decisions before the alleged crime even occurs.

As i mentioned, Canada takes a little different look at free speech than our neighbours to the south. Canada has hate speech laws, which basically say:

Quote:
Public incitement of hatred

319. (1) Every one who, by communicating statements in any public place, incites hatred against any identifiable group where such incitement is likely to lead to a breach of the peace is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

Wilful promotion of hatred
(2) Every one who, by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, wilfully promotes hatred against any identifiable group is guilty of

(a) an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years; or

(b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

Identifiable group is defined as:

Quote:

(4) In this section, "identifiable group" means any section of the public distinguished by colour, race, religion, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.

from http://laws.justice.gc.ca/en/showdoc...year=all&lengthannual=50&length=50

I am not a lawyer or judge so i have no real experience in applying or interpreting laws, but from what i can read, if we use the premise that we shouldnt let them in because they will likely break the law, it seems to be to be valid.

Maybe Canada can use their 'hate speech' laws to arrest them, detain them in a jail there, try them and convict them of a felony thus banning them from future entry into Canada.

Canada like all countries has the right to deny entry to anyone they feel like. Just having the proper documents only allows you to apply for entry, the problem is that if they deny the wrong person then it has the potential to create international tension. Also if they were come by air then the airline that flies them here has to foot the bill to send said people back.

That they call themselves Christians pisses me off.

No politician is going to lose votes by standing up to these people though. I don't even think the most socially conservative Canadians support Westboro to any extent; especially when you consider that this order was issued by Stockwell Days office.

According to our police service, the protest wouldnt violate hate laws in Canada. I think there is a religious provision that gets the off the hook. However:

Quote:
A Winnipeg police spokeswoman said the protest would not violate any hate laws, but officers have the ability to lay charges depending on what happens tomorrow.

She said charges can be laid under the provincial Cemeteries Act if anyone wilfully and unlawfully disturbs people assembled "for the purpose of burying a body."

http://winnipegsun.com/News/Winnipeg/2008/08/08/6381591-sun.html

Another interesting quote from the article, from a member of parliament no less:

Quote:
Pat Martin, the NDP MP for Winnipeg Centre, agreed.

"These guys are lunatics," said Martin.

"They're not baptists -- Tommy Douglas was a baptist."

Martin said there could be an "absolute melee at the church" if the picket goes ahead. If so, the folks from Kansas should be prepared for some "northern hospitality," he said.

I have to deal with these idiots on a regular basis. I hope they don't even let them in up there. They get away with too much down here in the states. We do have a group called the Patriot Guard that protects all of our military families of fallen coming home as well as deploying soldiers, whom they also like to protest and hold signs up to.

If you do some searches there are some really funny pranks on them. Some guys were calling them day and night for days on end sending gay strippers and sex toys among many other things to the Phelps. DO NOT however go to their website, they get paid for everyone that goes to it from what I hear.

Good luck on keeping them out.

If a country can deny entrance to people without any question or reason, why can't Canada reject these nutters at immigration? Canadian immigration would save them a ton of pain and they wouldn't have to take a smidgen of responsibility.

That is exactly what they are doing. However, unless they have all names on file of everyone that could be going, and are extremely vigilant(which i would hope they would be) they may 'slip through'. They were denied entry once, but apparently there is another 'team' on its way to winnipeg for the funteral. The federal minister in charge of border services sent an alert saying do not let them in.

The other thing is there are some 'uncontrolled' border crossings between canada and the US, where sometimes all you do is pick up the phone and call some guy.

Lock the mother fuckers up.

A year in one of your fine correctional institutions should do nicely (do you have any space on Beechey Island?), if you can get your self respecting felons residing therein to refrain from pounding the snot out of them.

If that happens, drinks are on the house.

Some years ago the ultra-rightwing NPD decided to march through the East Berlin district of Marzahn (where most people are actually communists). Acc. to right of free speech, they had the right to march and the police was supposed to protect them. But the police didn't like to be seen as protectors for neonazis, so they took their time to arrive at the starting point of the march. The Nazis felt strong enough and marched anyway, without police protection.
Well, the locals (reinforced by anarchist punk rockers and groups of mainly Turkish immigrants) were waiting for them with baseball bats (funny, almost nobody in Germany plays baseball, but the bats sell well  Wink ), bricks and steel bars.
The Nazis received the beating of their lives and were running for dear life.

it will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow.

I am kind of leary to get involved. There have been a few incidents involving police here in the past few weeks(someone shot and killed after apparently going towards cops with a knife, and a kid dying after a tazering, and then all the criticism of the handling of the greyhound murderer) that make me wonder if the police will be brazen or if they will hold back. Of course, if everything stays peaceful it will be fine, but i can see someone doing something that starts a chain of events. the cops have said they will have a heightened presence at the funeral as well.

PETA is apparently also planning on protesting at the funeral. I wonder who will get more attention.

Someone is beheaded on a bus and PETA is upset? I fail to see the connection. Even if someone involved were wearing fur coat and leather hat and eating a thick, juicy steak at the time, PETA should see this is neither the time nor the place for such a protest.

These morons will get theirs come judgement day, anyway. I am not very Christian in saying this but: I will love to see the look on their faces when God Almighty tells them exactly why they are being cast into eternal damnation...

PETA attempted to run an ad in the Prtage la Prairie paper(the town closest to the actual site of the killing) equating the killing to what we do to cows before we eat them. Thankfully, the editor of the paper said no to running the ad. They haven't publicly announced that they are attending, but there are sources on local message boards saying they were looking at going and are rumored to be protesting as well. Here is the ad:

I know. How many wild cows are roaming the countryside? Wasn't it Bill Engvall the one who joked about the thousands of wild chickens roaming the countryside before the white man came? What about the thousands of cattle roaming the countryside?

Comparing what happened in Manitoba to cattle shows PETA does not think much of humans, anyway.
Life in the wall is a drag.

Generally I think PETA does good work in opening people's eyes to animal rights issues. But this is misguided, stupid, badly timed, and offensive. Really dumb.

The other thing is there are some 'uncontrolled' border crossings between canada and the US, where sometimes all you do is pick up the phone and call some guy.

Yes... My work (a marina) is one of those such places. However, you give all the same information over the phone as you do to a real live customs officer. If the border control feels the need to come see the person they are usually there within a matter of 15 minutes.

That would be interesting if they all showed up at my work to cross the border. I'd take much pleasure in calling the border patrol (or whatever they're called)!
