    Guns with an immense amount of red tape. I remember that bear in Toronto where even the game officer had trouble acquiring a firearm to deal with the situation due to the restrictive bureaucracy.

    Yet Canadians still have guns but not the gun violence. We are clearly not in a position to criticize.

    Must've been a very quiet one as no one noticed it.

    Wah wah. Let me know when Christians are burnt to death, thrown off buildings, stoned to death, beaten to death, etc. (as LGBT people are and have been in Abrahamic societies) for being bigoted prats and maybe I'll take your oft-desired martyred badge more seriously. Until then, the guy just got arrested for being a public nuisance. These hellfire and brimstone preachers basically base their whole schtick around insulting and belittling people (much of Christian ideology is insulting, really), so I'm surprised when they don't get punched in the mouth for what they say.

    What do I need to repent of? What consequences? What afterlife? And what is this "sin?"

    Never, not once, has one of these breathless "zomg! Canada arresting pastors for being Christian!" Stories turned out to be true. NOT. ONCE.

    Stop lying.

    To those who have been privileged, equality feels like oppression.

    Yes, he was arrested for pushing the limit between free speech and public nuisance...and yes, the headline was definitely wrong about the case

    Yes he was....using a loudspeaker? That's not "adorning Divine teaching", that's pushing people away. Sure glad we use other, quieter means!

    Canada has Hate Speech laws. Shouting derogatory statements in a public place qualifies as hate speech.
