‘Truth about homosexuality’ pamphleteer sues CBC over ‘kill the homosexual’ flyer

“The flyer with the words ‘Kill the homosexual’ was not one of the three flyers in question in the Supreme Court of Canada,” the statement of claim explains.

Instead, it was a flyer that Whatcott had handed out two years previously, and, more importantly, the words ‘kill the homosexual’ “were quoted as a parody on an Alberta Human Rights Tribunal Decision that found that a popular song with the lyrics ‘Kill the Christians’ did not constitute hate towards Christians.”

The 2003 case the flyer referred to was brought forward by Quintin Johnson, who said he was browsing for CDs at a Music World shop in Red Deer, Alberta, when he found an album from the group “Deicide” containing a track called “Kill the Christian.”

“Kill The Christian/You are the one we despise/Day in day out your words compromise lies/I will love watching you die,” the lyrics read.
