"In Canada, a Christian television show was reinstated in December 2010 after being taken off the air in response to the host’s comments about homosexuality. Although Word TV is back on the air, the Canadian Broadcasting Standards Council is now prescreening and censoring its content.
“We spoke against a new proposed sex education curriculum that would teach gender identity, six genders, and sexual orientation to our children,” explained Dr. Charles McVety, president of Canada Christian College and host of the show.
McVety also spoke against a $400,000 Canadian government grant for a homosexual pride parade, which the government ultimately withdrew because of nudity and other illegal behavior.
The CBSC afforded McVety no hearing, ruling that he had breached the code of ethics. In reference to his comments criticizing the parade, the council ruled that the preacher used the term “sex parade” in a derogatory way during a sermon.
During a sermon? The Canadian government is now in the business of policing what is said in pulpits?
“The criminal code says the people in the parade should be prosecuted,” notes McVety. “But somehow, I am the one prosecuted for speaking against this.”
McVety was told if he commits further “offenses,” he will be permanently taken off the air in Canada. He must censor himself or else.
