In a disturbing recent court decision in Queensland a Man was found guilty of inciting hatred against homosexuals by Queensland's Anti-Discrimination Tribunal for displaying a bumper sticker which read:
Gay Rights? Under God's law the only rights gays have is the right to die."
In the 77 page report put down by the Tribunal they said that he had a right to be homophobic but not incite violence against gays.
You know I am a bit confused here and I realise there is a legal distinction, but when some screams anti gay abuse at me that's OK, but if they said Die Faggot Die, that may be inciting violence?
Personally I would have therefore thought ANY homophobic comments were directly or indirectly inciting violence.
Whilst I find part of this decision good, I find the rest of the decision startling and scary as it legally allows homophobic abuse.
