Canada, O Canada

The Canadian Legislature has passed a bill yesterday that makes speaking out against homosexuality or "alternative" sexual orientations a criminal act. Opponents fear that once made law, it will condemn the Bible as "hate literature."

Also hugely problematic is the fact that in the law,  the term "sexual orientation" is not defined. The American Psychiatric Association lists 24 behaviors under "sexual orientation." They include polygamy, bestiality and pedophilia. So, someone could be fined or potentially go to prison if they speak out against polygamy or pedophilia.

I didn't want to blog about anything other than Terri today, but this is unbelievably absurd and in dire need of attention.

So, this means the mormon capital of the world will move from Salt Lake City to Toronto?
