OTTAWA, June 21 (LSN) – Reverend Fred Phelps, a US pastor whose extremist approach against homosexuality is seen by some as being helpful to the homosexual movement, is coming to Canada to stage a Canadian flag burning protest over the Supreme Court decision on homosexual spousal benefits. The National Post reported yesterday on the upcoming event.  The homosexual activist group Equality for Gays and Lesbians Everywhere is launching a counter demonstration and seems to revel in this opportunity to paint all pro-family activists with the same brush.  However, the Canada Family Action Coalition (CFAC) says that no attention should be paid to the antics of Phelps. “Homosexual groups are showing political immaturity by giving Phelps undue attention,” said Peter Stock of CFAC in an interview with LifeSite yesterday. Pro-  family groups argue that reasoned debate on homosexuality becomes marred when activists on either side concentrate on persons rather than on behaviour.  See the National Post at:
