Parliamentary petition against the religious exception in federal Hate Propaganda law

AFT launches parliamentary petition against the religious exception in federal Hate Propaganda law

Canada, Montreal, 19th October 2017 — Atheist Freethinkers (LPA-AFT), an association which promotes secularism and supports the rights of atheists, is pleased to announce the launch of its parliamentary petition e-763 against the religious exception in the federal Hate Propaganda law, that is, line 319(3)b) of the Criminal Code of Canada. That line stipulates that “an opinion based on a belief in a religious text” is not considered hateful. However, several religious scriptures make declarations which denigrate and promote hatred towards various groups, including atheists, women, gays and others. The impunity granted by this provision thus constitutes an unjust privilege for religious believers and is prejudicial towards nonbelievers.
To sign the petition, simply visit the web site of the Parliament of Canada at the following address:
