Many people have spoken out against gay marriage in Canada, many are very potent critics of gay marriage and if you follow the logic of conservative Rempel at The Politic, they all should now be before Human Rights Commissions for doing so.
How many anti gay-marriage folks are the subject of complaints for their comments on the subject. The answer is one. Bishop Henry.
Sometimes these folks think just because they are a member of a religion, it gives them free reign to say anything they want in society in the name of their religion. Does freedom of religion imply a church leader would be free to call for "the stoning" of someone or group of people? There are limits on all freedoms and Churchs are not above the law in our secular country.

Bishop Henry smacks 'em down, kicks ass
Peter Rempel March 31, 2005
"If anyone has any doubt whatsoever about the status of religious freedoms in Canada, then it is time to take a good hard look at the recent experience of Bishop Fred Henry of Calgary. Henry made the mistake of speaking out against gay marriage and will now for his indiscretion be hauled before the local kangaroo court known as the provincial human rights commission. The message is clear: Speak out against gay marriage and you will be subjected to abuses by the state."
