Rejection of Homosexual Clergy is "Hate"

From New Zealand:

"The executive director of the Aids Foundation, Rachael Le Mesurier, issued a shrill press statement last week condemning the distribution of bumper stickers opposing homosexual clergy in the Presbyterian Church. She was gravely concerned that the law allowed no recourse against "hate campaigns"....

The Aids Foundation, however, thinks the rights of gay people are best protected by suppressing other people's right to free speech. Ms Le Mesurier's statement serves as a reminder that the gay activist lobby, for which the foundation serves as a front, hasn't given up its dream of a law forbidding "hate speech"....

Personally, I would rather live with the occasional distasteful bumper sticker than sacrifice basic democratic rights to the speech police."
