There isn’t too much that makes me angry. Ok well, yes there is but I don’t usually let stuff get to me.
But when it comes to the arrogant bastards who want ram their opinions up everyone else’s life – I get Maaaaaad!
And you don’t want to be making me cross – especially if your ‘opinion’ is one of the insidious, dangerous, intrusive sort that cause young people to take their own lives.
Hate Speech takes many forms and the one that has riled me up was in written form on a friend’s blog.
My friend Karen has a blog and it recently attracted the attention of a self professed ‘opinionated’ Canadian who clearly believes it is her job to rid the world of homosexuality.
Well, of course, she’s a Christian and according to her, the bible says homosexuality is a sin. So naturally, she feels compelled to get herself ‘out there’ and verbally abuse anyone who supports ‘wrong sexual choices.’
By getting herself ‘out there’, I mean she makes nasty comments online while hiding behind the name ‘Sandi’ (yes, as Joe C says, Sandi with a fucking i!)
So she’s not ‘out there’ at all. Or so she thinks. But with a very tiny amount of research, I found her full name, address and phone number.
I have passed them on to Karen who had to suffer the intrusion of this woman’s ugly opinions and thoughts – all in the name of God, of course.
And as ‘Sandi’ feels compelled to spread her homophobic, religious ranting:
I wonder where she stands on this from Leviticus:
Leviticus 19:27 “Ye shall not round the corners of your heads.”
Is she waging a campaign against people with short hair too?
And what about covering our heads up? Where does Sandi stand on the following I wonder?
1 Corinthians 11:2–16
Now I commend you because you remember me in everything and maintain the traditions even as I delivered them to you. But I want you to understand that the head of every man is Christ, the head of a wife is her husband, and fthe head of Christ is God.
Every man who prays or prophesies with his head covered dishonors his head, but every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven.
For if a wife will not cover her head, then she should cut her hair short. But since it is disgraceful for a wife to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her head. For a man ought not to cover his head, since he is the image and glory of God, but woman is the glory of man. For man was not made from woman, but woman from man.
Neither was man created for woman, but woman for man. That is why a wife ought to have a symbol of authority on her head, because of the angels. Nevertheless, in the Lord woman is not independent of man nor man of woman; for as woman was made from man, so man is now born of woman. And all things are from God.
Are the Christian busy-bodies out there sorting out women with short hair? Because, according to the bible, women with short hair are a disgrace and their heads need to be covered.
So, are you out there, Sandi-with-an-i, ridding the world of disgraceful short haired women?
Or does leaving abusive comments about homosexuality on people’s blogs take up most of your time?
And Sandi – me old mate – do you eat, or have you ever eaten:
Leviticus 11:10 “And all that have not fins and scales in the seas, and in the rivers, of all that move in the waters, and of any living thing which is in the waters, they shall be an abomination unto you.”
How, may I ask, are you tackling the widespread practice of Godless humans consuming all of the above on a regular basis, in posh restaurants all over the world?
Or, as I said earlier, are you so busy focusing on the sexual activities of other people (which I find a little creepy if I’m honest) that you don’t have time to nip down to your local Red Lobster Restaurant to tell them how to run their business in accordance with your biblical bollocks?
I’m sure you are fully aware they would tell you to Fuck. Off.
But if you want to give it a go, they are at 6575 Tecumseh Rd E, Windsor, ON N8T 1E7, Canada
But you may find it easier to stick to terrorising people online, from the comfort of your sofa, anonymously (or so you thought).
Because that is what bigots and bullies do.
They attack those who can’t fight back.
They spread their intrusive opinions the coward’s way – online.
But Sandi – Hate Speech is a crime in your country – did you know that?
You are of course entitled to your grubby little opinions but what you are not enitled to do is force them on others in the name of Christianity. You may be able to get away with that shit in the USA, at the moment, but not in Canada – where you happen to live.
Canadian Human Rights Act. Section 3 of the Canadian Human Rights Act prohibits discrimination based on “race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family status, disability and conviction for which a pardon has been granted.”
And this from the Canadian Criminal Code:
Criminal Code Provisions Targeting Hate
3.1 Hate Propaganda
Section 319(2) makes it an offence to communicate, except in private conversation, statements that wilfully promote hatred against an “identifiable group” (which has the same meaning as in section 318). As with offences under section 318, no prosecution under section 319(2) can be instituted without the consent of the Attorney General.
And who knows what the Attorney General would think of your opinions, expressed very forcefully on someone else’s blog.
Yes, that’s right, it’s 2019 and we still have people in our midst who believe that sexuality is a ‘lifestyle choice’ and that those who make that choice need to be ‘saved’
Do us a favour Sandi – take your bigoted, tiny mind and use it to sort yourself out.
Your Hate Speech is not wanted by the decent human beings who care about the welfare of the marginalised groups you target.
Young people take their own lives because of pressure from people like you – how does that sit with God eh? You think Jesus would have been happy to watch young people get bullied to death by ‘opinionated’ people?
I think not. Hate speech needs to be STOPPED NOW.
