Canadian Women’s Group Exposes Homosexual Activist Opposition to Child Porn Law

OTTAWA, September 26, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – Influential gay activist political tactics against child porn laws and raising the age of consent has been a disturbing and on-going phenomenon that the public is not aware of according to leaders of organizations fighting child porn.

On July 20, Canada’s House of Commons passed Bill C-2 which added amendments to the Criminal Code on matters related to child pornography. Gwen Landolt, National Vice President of REAL Women of Canada, says that the amendments were helpful but still do not provide full protection for vulnerable children. Furthermore, in a detailed article scheduled for the September 26th edition of REAL Women’s Reality magazine, Landolt reveals there was predictably strong opposition from Canada’s homosexual activist organizations to C-2.

Bill C-2, says Landolt “includes some serious loopholes for those charged with violations of our child pornography law”. Some of the problems she identifies are:
  1.The defence of “artistic merit” to a charge of child pornography was retained.
  2. No minimum sentence was included in the bill when it was introduced in the House of Commons.Â
  3. It did not include a provision to raise the age of consent from 14 years to 16 years “despite the fact that the Provincial Attorneys General had approved, at their annual federal/provincial meetings in October 1998, December 1999, and again in September 2003, to raise the age of consent’.

Landlolt notes that Canada’s most prominent, and often government funded, homosexual activist organization, EGALE, opposes raising the age of consent and that the mild amendments to the child pornography law “made the homosexual community decidedly unhappy”.Â

Revealing the extraordinary influence of the homosexual organizations on government policy Landolt notes, “it is well known that the Liberal government never brings forward legislation unless it has passed inspection by the homosexual lobby.”

The article reports that the Coalition for Lesbian and Gay Rights in Ontario (CLGRO) submitted a brief to the committee considering C-2 and complained that the bill would deny lesbian, gay and bisexual teens the free expression of their sexuality and create more circumstances in which sexual relations with adolescents would be criminalized.Â

CLGRO stated in its brief that “younger persons are capable of seeking and do seek out consensual same-sex relationships with older persons and, in fact, may be the initiators of such relationships. In addition, contrary to popular belief, a relationship with an older person may not in fact be damaging for a young person”.

The national newspaper, the Globe and Mail, “which never fails to promote the homosexual agenda”, says Landolt, also opposed the C-2 amendments. In a July 6 editorial it stated that Bill C-2 was “extreme” and objected to the limits placed on freedom of expression.Â

The REAL Women article concludes by warning that “The homosexual activists’ objection to Bill C-2, together with the Globe and Mail editorial, are setting the stage for our liberal judges to overturn the child pornography law at the first opportunity they get”.ÂÂ
