Lesbians 1, Christians 0

Vancouver Sun, July 6 2011: Comedian Guy Earle recently filed a petition at the Supreme Court in British Columbia to appeal a decision of the BC Human Rights Tribunal. The tribunal held that Earle discriminated against Lorna Pardy during an open-mike event for amateur standup comics. Pardy heckled Earle and he responded by making insulting comments regarding her sexual orientation. These comments resulted in the tribunal ordering Earle to pay Pardy $15,000 for injury to her dignity, feelings and self-respect.

In contrast, in 2003, the Alberta Human Rights Commission did not protect the dignity, feelings, or selfrespect of Quintin Johnson. Johnson, a Christian, had complained to the commission regarding a song titled Kill the Christian by the death metal band Deicide. The lyrics included, "you are the one we despise; I will love watching you die" and "kill the Christian." The commission dismissed Johnson's complaint on the grounds that Deicide did not have a wide enough listening audience or popular appeal, even though the band had sold nearly 500,000 albums in the U.S. alone by that time.
