Last night, more than 1,000 people jammed into a meeting hall to hear about M-103, a Parliamentary motion that calls upon the government to “eliminate” Islamophobia.
Trouble is, it doesn’t define Islamophobia.
We already have laws against violence, and even against religious discrimination. So does it mean what it looks like it means: that the Liberals want to ban criticism or insults to Islam itself?
I spoke about my fears of M-103, and my experience with government censorship ten years ago when I published the Danish cartoons of Mohammed. We had other great speakers like the Rebel's Faith Goldy, four Conservative Party leadership candidates, and Dr. Charles McVety.
But some of the best insight into came from our guests, many who were Muslim or refugees from majority Muslim countries. Take a look at what they had to say:
Here’s another video, where our Jay Fayza explains why he believes islamophobia can be justified:
The Liberal government wants to give Islam a special protection from criticism that no other religion has. That’s not fair, that’s not legal, and that’s not the Canadian way.
We believe in the separation of mosque and state — no special status.
If you think that criticism of Islam should be allowed, if you think the Canadians should have the freedom to offend anyone, then please click here and sign our petition to fight back against motion M103.
We need to fight those who want to censor free speech.
