This "ex-gay" stuff is dangerous!
There's an "ex-gay" social conservative activist named Bill Whatcott who used to be based in Regina and I believe he's been in Edmonton for the last few years. He's rabid ani-abortionist and rabid gay-hater. Some years back he ended up hit with a restraining order for picketing outside the Regina Planned Parenthood office with gory pictures of fetuses.
Some years back he ran for mayor of Regina. (He was a "fringe candidate".) Part of his platform was to force Planned Parenthood and the Human Rights Commission to move outside the city limits. I assume that his gripe with Planned Parenthood is that they're abortion-mongers. I guess his gripe with the Human Rights Commission is that is stands up for the rights of those evil gays and radical feminist abortion-mongers.
Lately, he's been a lot more focused on hating gays. One of my gay political buddies told a group of us that Whatcott says he doesn't advocate killing gays, but it should be legal to publicly say kill the gays. If you're saying "Huh??", that's what I thought too.
BTW, is it legal in America to spread hate against GLBT people? I'm asking because I know that in a lot of jurisdictions, there are no laws to protect gays from discrimination, so maybe there's nothing to protect them from hate either.
