An American anti-gay activist and a Canadian abortion activist were arrested at the University of Regina Monday. Peter LaBarbera,
Yeah thats right, thats what they news articles on this story were reporting. But they could very easily be charged with Trespassing (after it all they were not students on the university)
I know that laws against hate preaching are pretty strict in Canada but I didn't know that these laws differ from province to province. It's good to know that Saskatchewan has no time for hate peddling. Why do you think he chose Saskatchewan?
The two men were looking for trouble. Why else would you go to a collage campus grounds to preach? There are plenty of places in Canada they could have gotten away with it. Like in a town square. They wanted a confrontation so they could pull out the "persecution" card.
Hi guys, these two preachers are the usual run of the mill troops shouting out for the sky gods & pals . In most nations religion is interfaced with the rulers etc. These religions may cause a form of dementia in the human brain, the constant anxiety caused by the conditioned effects of being constantly watched by the sky gods for any sins by the followers that might cause so called evil deeds.
To be fair most "crazy" people were crazy to begin with, the doctrine of the bible just puts the icing on the cake. I'm sorry but there is actually no evidence proving that religious beliefs cause dementia of any kind. As a matter of fact a person with no beliefs whatsoever is just as likely to experience dementia. An example of such people was Joseph Stalin (I'm not getting into dialogue with this views on communism here). But it is a known fact that Stalin suffered from dementia, which could be a key reason to why he had such a militant hatred for all persons with religious beliefs etc
Furthermore there has been research in the filed of psychology that positive beliefs from religion and or non-religous spiritualism are actually good for a person's psychological well being. Yes it may be a form of false optimism in many cases. It has the same effect of lying to a dying man and telling him he is on the way to recovery. It promotes a certain level of stability of the mind.I'm all for speaking out against the corruption of organised religion. But we should approach this with honesty. It is not accurate to say that religious beliefs necessarily cause dementia. Reason suggests that the root of most cases of dementia is some other reason. Such as a traumatic experience in a persons childhood, bad parenting or extreme stress levels. It may even be a born trait of some sort of psychological l imbalance. And the most important factor to consider here is that it really does take a certain type of person to believe in some of these very extreme beliefs.
