The DWP’s case against the 56-year-old father of four claimed the doctor’s belief in Genesis 1:27 was not a belief protected by the Equality Act 2010 but was rather a ‘mere opinion.’ “In essence, I’m now being compelled…

When asked if New Zealand is hostile to free speech, Ardern replied, “I think we’re hostile to their views.” “Look, they’re here because there were no grounds to block them being here,” Ardern added. “That does not mean we welcome their views.” “I think you’ll see from the reaction they’ve had from New Zealanders that their views are not those that are shared by this country and I’m quite proud of that.” So much for tolerance and…

Stefan Molyneux and Lauren Southern have released a video after venue owner cancelled their event last minutes. Stefan Molyneux explains: “In the West there was almost no problem with free speech until multiculturalism….

The Australian Labor Party’s consultation draft claims to “distill the policies and enduring values that Labor aspires to implement in government.” According to the document, “all Australians have the right to exercise their freedom of speech” (p.187; 120), but with that freedom comes the responsibility not to “harm” others with your words. “Australia’s anti-vilification laws strike an appropriate balance between the right to free speech and protection from the harm of hate speech” (121). Words, either written or spoken, can cause actual harm, beyond “mere offence,” according to the ALP. Those who abuse the “responsibilities that come with freedom of…
