Every time you think that crazy-assed whackjob Kate McMillan can't get any more dishonest or reprehensible, well, she raises the bar. Or lowers it. Whatever.
As we did earlier today, witness the sleazy dishonesty:
"Five years in prison for quoting Scripture"
Which, as I'm sure you'll admit, certainly seems draconian at first glance -- a reference to 21-year-old Calgarian Jessica Beaumont. What unfairness! What injustice! What Christian persecution! What ... what ... what the fuck?
Internet hate costs 'Jessy Destruction' $4,500 for online racial slurs

A Calgary woman has been fined $1,500 and ordered to pay $3,000 in compensation to an Ottawa man after the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal upheld a complaint about Internet hatred.
In a ruling released yesterday, the tribunal issued a permanent order requiring Jessica Beaumont, a 21-year-old Calgary retail clerk and self-described "full-time Nazi," to stop posting hate messages on the Internet.
I'm sorry ... this is your poster child for free speech persecution? What exactly is going on here? Oh ...
Between October 2003 and May 2006, Beaumont, writing under the pseudonym "Jessy Destruction," posted more than 1,000 messages on the Canadian forum of Stormfront.org, a U.S. neo-Nazi website. The messages included racial epithets, white supremacist literature and hatred directed against blacks, homosexuals, immigrants and Jews.
Yeeeaahhhhhh. So what precisely does this have to do with quoting Scripture? Whoops, there we go:
Tucked into the CHRC complaint, along with some of Jessica's rather unsavoury internet posts, were two Bible verses:
Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable.
If a man lies with man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.
So it really was just a verse from Scripture -- one which explicitly promotes the murder of gays. Well, well, well .... how about that?
Perhaps the most revealing thing about all of this is how Christians like Beaumont (and, by extension, the homophobic white supremacist Kate McMillan) insist on hiding behind Scripture to justify their racism and homophobia.
"It's only Scripture," they say, whining about how this is somehow trampling their right to religious expression, or something equally inane. Well, fine ... then why not suck it up and come right out and say what that verse really means, Kate -- that gays should be killed.
I'm sure Kate and her drooling following of equally pathetic racists and homophobes have no problem defending Beaumont's right to post that particular bit of Scripture. But are they equally prepared to defend Beaumont if Beaumont came right out and said gays should be killed, in exactly those words? Come on, kids, let's not cower behind the technicality of Scripture -- if you want to leap to Beaumont's defense, then come right out and say you agree with her and that homosexuals deserve death.
In fact, here's a public challenge to that rancid bigot Kate McMillan -- if you're going to publicly complain about Beaumont's sentence, then I want you to publish a front-page blog entry, stating clearly and unambiguously, "Gays should be killed."
Let's go, Kate. You want to offer Beaumont moral support? Then let's not beat around the bush, or hide behind Scripture. Show some spine, and come right out and let the world hear it -- Jessica Beaumont wants the right to publicly state that gays should be killed, and you're behind her 100 per cent. If you want to hang out in Jessica's corner, Kate, then at least have the fucking grapes to do it publicly and proudly.
Let's go, Kate. We're all waiting.
THAT'S SOME PRETTY SELECTIVE CONTEXT THERE. As Dr. Dawg points out in a comment on that earlier related post, it's amusing to watch the people staunchly defending Beaumont turn around and whine piteously about gays being hanged in Iran.
How about some consistency, folks? Either you want teh faggots killed or you don't. How hard a choice is that?
NOT SURPRISINGLY, I'm happy to make the same blog challenge to any other right-wing, Canadian whackjob that has the lack of sense to defend Jessica Beaumont, and should anyone be surprised to find this cretin doing just that?
To no one's amazement, "Canadian Sentinel" whinges on about Christian persecution, while conveniently omitting the text of Scripture in question. So, CS, time to put the money where the mouth is as well. "Gays should be killed." Or are we, as they say in Texas, all hat and no cattle?
P.S. That last question was entirely rhetorical.
