Anti-Gay Activist Peter LaBarbera Leaves Canada After Arrest

2_labarbera

Anti-gay activist Peter LaBarbera left Canada a day after being released from jail following his arrest at the University of Regina. Apparently LaBarbera and fellow anti-gay hatemonger anti-abortion activist Bill Whatcott were planning to hit the University of Saskatchewan with their homophobic nonsense, but decided not to get arrested again.

CBC reports:

LaBarbera, 51, was questioned by Canadian border officials Tuesday morning following his arrest on the University of Regina campus a day earlier. LaBarbera and fellow activist Bill Whatcott were escorted off university property and charged with mischief Monday afternoon.

The university learned the men were on the property around 12:30 p.m., and they were asked to leave the campus several times. LaBarbera and Whatcott were displaying materials the university described as "graphic" and against the institution’s policy.

LaBarbera planned to hit up a right-wing talk show this afternoon to "discuss the Gay Thought Police in Canada and their American defenders."

Peter LaBarbera Arrest

Just days after being denied and then allowed entry into Canada, anti-gay wingnut Peter Labarbera has gone and gotten himself arrested. He and anti-abortion activist Bill Whatcott were taken into custody at the University of Regina by the Regina Police Service on charges of trespassing after the two men refused to leave the campus after being asked to do so by the local police. T

hey were trying to hand out anti-gay propaganda and graphic anti-abortion pamphlets to passers by before they were asked to leave.

Stand by for this to be spun as a story of evil homosexualists attacking/bullying/persecuting innocent Christians for the thought crimes of practicing their religion.

You can watch a video of the arrest AFTER THE JUMP...

Peter LaBarbera Was Let Into Canada: VIDEO

Labarbera

Yesterday we reported that anti-gay wingnut Peter LaBarbera was held up at the Canadian border as officals conducted background checks on whether he might be in violation of the country's hate speech laws for his sermonizing against homosexuality.

He was eventually let in to the country, CBC reports:

LaBarbera claimed Canadian authorities were influenced by a group calling itself Intolerance-Free Weyburn, which did not want him to deliver his speech.

"I think it's a good precedent that, ultimately, their demands were not honoured," he said.

"I hope this bodes well for Canada and America. You should be able to have a debate on this issue."

The Canada Border Services Agency declined to comment on what had transpired, citing confidentiality reasons.

But more protests against "Porno Pete" were yet to come at the anti-abortion speech he was scheduled to give.

Anti-Gay Wingnut Peter LaBarbera Halted at Canadian Border Over Possible Hate Speech Violations

Anti-gay wingnut Peter LaBarbera was detained at the Canadian border on Thursday as immigrations officials examined whether he might be in violation of the country's laws against hate speech, LaBarbera reported on Thursday.

Wrote LaBarbera on his site after tweeting about the incident:

Upon deplaning, as I passed through Customs, I was delayed for further questioning by an official with the Canada Border Services Agency. Obviously, I had been flagged as a result of a campaign by the leftist group "Intolerance Free Weyburn," which is specifically lobbying the Canadian government to deny my entry into Canada as the alleged purveyor of "hate'" [See this AFTAH report on their lobby effort to deny me entry into Canada, and this previous report on the group's attempt to have me removed as a speaker at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association (SPLA) conference April 11-12.]

After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTAH’s website–a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada’s “Hate Propaganda” law (essentially the potential for “public incitement of hatred” against a group of people based on their “sexual orientation”). The Orwellian experience at Customs dragged on for more than three hours as a formal document was issued outlining my denial of entry under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (citing the Hate Propaganda code). Finally, after 1:00 A.M., I was released pending my appeal of the decision today (Friday). My passport was seized until I arrive back at Customs today at noon for my appeal before a “Minister’s Delegate Review.”

No word yet on that appeal.

Russian Gay Activist Disrupts Scott Lively’s Speech at Anti-LGBT Event in D.C. – VIDEO

At a ‘pro-family’ press conference in D.C. on Friday, evangelist Scott Lively was caught on camera being heckled by Viacheslav Revin, a Russian gay activist and refugee in the U.S.

Queer Russia reports:

Revin disrupted Scott Lively’s presentation and made a statement with a help of Ellen Sturtz translating his speech into English:

"Homophobia is a first step toward dictatorship! Putin is a dictator who condemned to death thousands of orphaned children by banning foreign adoptions. Putin is a corrupted thief who invents scapegoats and deflects attention from his crimes. His latest invention is the anti-gay law, so gays in modern Russia feel like jews back in the USSR. Declaring support for Putin means denying the democracy and demanding racial segregation. This is what Putin doing in Russia now in regards to gays and migrant workers from Central Asia."

Lively-protest1Lively's speech was intended to announce the creation of the Coalition for Family Values, which includes Peter LaBarbera, Linda Harvey, and others dedicated to “confronting LGBT agenda” and supporting the Russian government’s anti-gay efforts.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Earlier this week, HRC released a video denouncing Lively and other prominent U.S. anti-gay activists for their work in helping Russia pass its gay propaganda law.
