    OAKVILLE, ONT. -- Anyone who runs an online message board, from the lowliest vanity blogger to the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, can be charged under federal human rights law if visitors to their site post hateful comments, according to the Canadian Human Rights Commission......

    .....If a message board owner can't manage to ensure the content of the message board is complying with Canadian law, then the message board should not be operating," she said.......

    No free speech in Canada and it's coming to the U.S. via hate crime laws that are coming very soon especially if Obama and a Democratic House and Senate have the reigns. Kiss your rights goodbye (especially Christians) if this happens.

    It's true about the hate crimes stuff. And it appears that its already happening in America. I am reading through Janet Folger's book "The Criminalization of Christianity" and many examples are referenced in Canada, Europe, and America of people facing fines, imprisonment, reeducation (yes, classes imposed by courts to indoctrinate), et.

    We should remember to pray for our nation's leaders that as Christians we may live peaceable and quiet lives.

    Some on this board will wish they had not been so concerned about WOLVES at this point, but by then it'll be too late!

    Christians are the only ones you can legally bash and get away with it.
