One thing we truly, honestly refuse to apologize for. Right to free speech, fine, but that kind of speech has no place in our country.

For people wondering why this is possible, allow me to explain. The United States of America's rights and freedoms are governed and detailed by the Constitution, which is a steadfast, unchanging document. Canada's Charter of Rights and Freedoms is similar, but has the flexibility to fit certain situations. The reason why the US really couldn't do anything about WBC is that they were technically exercising within the parameters of free speech. If they wished to ban them from protesting, then it would go against the constitution and cause a whole bunch of horse **** . Canada on the other hand, is able to pick and choose (based on evidence) of what is free speech and what is hate speech. (Just so people don't think that the Government has veto power over free speech, there are certain sections of our constitution and Charter of Rights and Freedoms which prevent the government from restricting what media and general people say). In essence (and theory), Canada is more run on a public opinion/reaction than political parameters, which is why WBC is banned.

Interestingly enough the UK have had them banned from entering the county since 2009 because they were deemed to be "engaged in unacceptable behaviour by inciting hatred against a number of communities".

That's not all. An alliance of six UK religious groups (the Baptist Union of Great Britain, Evangelical Alliance UK, Faithworks, Methodist Church of Great Britain, United Reformed Church and Bible Society-funded thinktank Theos) made a joint statement condemning the activities of the Westboro Baptist Church saying, "We do not share Westboro's hatred of lesbian and gay people. We believe that God loves all, irrespective of sexual orientation, and we unreservedly stand against their message of hate toward those communities."

Canada is not alone in seeing what absolutely disgusting human beings the people of that church are and I hope to god that those bastards never set foot in either of our countries whilst they're still spewing their ignorance from every orifice.

Free speech (that doesn't involve threats or actively encourages violence) is a non negotiable right for me. I don't see how Canada rated higher on the freedom index than the US without it. 0.o

At any rate, it is not the Westboro baptist church I defend, it is the idea that you and I ought to be able to say what we want without the government deciding what is legal or not.

Shame on you FunnyJunkers for supporting what is essentially government censorship. -.-

Hate speech is not okay to be censored unless someone is screaming in your face. Peaceful protestation, even if it is of a military funeral (Something which I consider so vile and disgusting it makes my head spin) is a fundamental right by which I will always stand.

TL;DR: I may not agree with what you say but I'll defend to the death your right to say it.
