Air Date: October 23, 2014
Host: Vic Eliason
Guest: Peter LaBarbera
Peter LaBarbera is the President of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality.
In April of this year, Peter was invited to speak at a pro-life association group in Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. After being invited, some leftists decided to make an issue of Peter’s appearance claiming that Peter is a hate-monger. They tried to get him removed from the speakers list and then lobbied the border agency to turn him back.
When Peter arrived at customs, he was questioned. Authorities looked through his phone and computer and were allowed to do this because Canada has a law that bans so-called hate propaganda. So the charge was alleged incitement of hate based upon sexual orientation so it was decided that Peter would not be allowed to enter Canada.
Eventually Peter did get into Canada because of pressure by some conservative Christian politicians. However, some time later, Peter protested peacefully at a college with another activist and they ended up being arrested because they refused to leave. After one day in jail Peter was given the option of leaving the country which he chose to do.
On October 30th, Peter is going back to Canada for trial to clear his name and to help stop Canada from being subjected to the censorship of the liberal thought police.
