CALGARY - An Alberta man who has pressed for five years to get an anti-gay letter branded as hate literature won a victory Friday with a human rights commission ruling that said it broke provincial law and may even have played a role in the beating of a gay teenager.
The letter, written by Stephen Boissoin and published in the Red Deer Advocate in 2002, carried the headline "Homosexual agenda wicked" and suggested gays were as immoral as pedophiles, drug dealers and pimps.
Darren Lund, a high school teacher in Red Deer at the time, complained to the Alberta Human Rights Commission after the teenager was beaten in the city two weeks after the letter was published....
Some people don't understand the idea of reading the Bible in context. I guess anyone making a negative comment about their parents should be killed. Or maybe to discipline their kid, we should beat our child with a shepherd's staff. When we read the Bible, we have to use the brain God gave us and not take everything so literally. I wasn't able to find the letter on the site, however if Mr. Boissoin advocated violence against homosexuals, he is not acting biblically. Remember what Jesus said were the 2 greatest commandments.

I notice in "God's Letter"
That HE puts homosexuality alongside human sacrifice and beastiality. I guess this would upset this guy too.
Lev 18:21 And thou shalt not let any of thy seed pass through the fire to Molech, neither shalt thou profane the name of thy God: I am the LORD. 22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination. 23 Neither shalt thou lie with any beast to defile thyself therewith: neither shall any woman stand before a beast to lie down thereto: it is confusion. 24 Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things: for in all these the nations are defiled which I cast out before you: 25 And the land is defiled: therefore I do visit the iniquity thereof upon it, and the land itself vomiteth out her inhabitants.
