Subject: RE: BS: Free speech, eh?

I thought jobs were plentiful up there. Don't these people have any work to do?

Hypothetical: "I agree with current Catholic doctrine on homosexuality."

Pay a fine.

"Homosexuality is normal and natural."

"No, it's not."

Pay a fine?

I'm sure homophobes are not an "identifiable group." We could safely disparage them, and incite . . . , without running afoul of the law?

I suppose this councilman made his comment during official proceedings, which changes things - but still. "Inciting hatred . . . in such a way that there will likely be a breach of the peace" is not that ambiguous to reasonable people. (Bureaucrats are an identifiabe group so I will say no more.) sheesh.
