Judge Dismisses $104-million Class Action Suit to Silence Christian Preacher Bill Whatcott but Then Orders He Reveal Names of Supporters

Judge Dismisses $104-million Class Action Suit to Silence Christian Preacher Bill Whatcott but Then Orders He Reveal Names of Supporters

After Canada’s Jewish lobby, the most mortal enemies of free speech in Canada are the activists the the LGBTQ homosexual/lesbian/transgendered and sexually disfunctional crowd. Irrepressible evangelist Bill Whatcott keeps finding ways to bring his hard Gospel admonitions to the LGBTQ crowd. Last summer, he and some supporters infiltrated Toronto’s Gay Pride Parade as Gay Zombies. He handed out tracts and condoms. The hideous revenge planned for him was a $104-million class action suit launched by homosexual activists and lawyers. The idea was to saddle Mr. Whatcott and those who joined or financially supported him with a horrific judgement (and costs). The clear point of this intimidation was to warn potential supporters: “You could be on the hook for huge costs. Nightmares of losing one’s home or bank account were the clear threat. Some of Mr. Whatcott’s more timid supporters have already backed off.

From the start, the claim was preposterous, but with Canada’s courts deeply infiltrated by homo-friendly elements and the Cultural Marxist creed of victimology, one never knows. As the LifeSiteNews report below explains, the judge threw out the class action suit BUT preached that the plaintiffs might pursue other civil actions against Bill and his band. To that end, he ordered Bill to reveal the names of his supporters. Bill announced he’d rather go to prison. His lawyers are appealing the judge’s extraordinary order.

In the never ending battle to secure our ancient liberties of free speech from the demonic clutches of the thought control freaks, this is definiItely a case to watch.

ONTARIO, April 19, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – An Ontario judge has ordered a Christian who evangelizes homosexuals to identify his financial backers and anonymous friends who helped him hand out info packets about the physical and spiritual dangers of anal sex at Toronto’s [Gay] Pride Parade last year. “There could be serious repercussions for me, including prolonged jail time if I don’t comply with the order to disclose the names of my supporters,” said Christian activist Bill Whatcott.  “Generally, Christians should comply with secular courts, but not when complying harms the innocent or when the order is unjust in the eyes of God,” he added.  Homosexual activists last year launched a $104 million class-action lawsuit against Whatcott for defamation after he and a handful of friends infiltrated the [Toronto Gay] Pride Parade dressed as green “gay zombies.” They handed out what looked to be free condoms in packets that said “Zombie Safe Sex” but which contained messages about the physical and spiritual dangers of homosexual practices. The messages encouraged active homosexuals to change their lifestyle and accept the Christian faith. 


Last month, Justice Paul Perell dismissed the lawsuit on a technicality, ruling in Hudspeth v. Whatcott that the homosexual activists George Smitherman and Christopher Hudspeth could not claim defamation of an entire group, such as the Pride Parade participants or the “LGTBTQ2SI Community,” but only of individuals. [You need a politically correct guidebook to keep track of the growing number of sexually weird privileged groups.]

But then in a surprise move in the same ruling, the judge ordered Whatcott to deliver the names of a half a dozen anonymous “zombies” who helped hand out the info packets as well as the “unidentified financial backers” who funded the group’s expenses.  The judge argued that knowing the identities of the individuals who helped Whatcott was “necessary” to the homosexual activists if they were to decide in the future to go ahead with further legal action on grounds that the judge himself suggested.
But Whatcott said he would rather go to jail than betray his friends and supporters to homosexual activists who have publicly promised to “punish them” with a multimillion-dollar lawsuit.

Instead of letting Whatcott face jail time for being in contempt of court in not handing over the names of his friends and supporters, Whatcott’s lawyers are appealing the ruling.

In the appeal, Charles Lugosi and Findlay McCarthy argue that Judge Perell “erred” in ordering Whatcott to reveal the identities of the members of his group after having dismissed the case.  “Once it was determined that the action could not proceed as a class proceeding and that the representative plaintiffs [Smitherman and Hudspeth] had no cause of action, then the action should [have] been dismissed, as the plaintiffs were no longer capable of representing members of the classes,” they argued in the appeal.

Whatcott said that the judge ordering him to betray his friends so that homosexual activists can bring legal action against them shows how far the nation has “turn[ed] its back on God” as it “embraces sexual libertinism as its new idol.
Indeed, a judge helping the losing party to refile its claim and ordering the winning party to reveal the identities of friends and helpers to the losers so the helpers of the winning side can be sued is unheard of in property, divorce, criminal, or injury cases,” he said. “Only in a case involving homosexual activism where the homosexual activists are seeking to silence the voice of Christians could such a deviation from established legal norms be contemplated,” he added.

Whatcott has launched a GoGetFunding page to raise $50,000 to help cover his legal costs. So far, he has raised $10,706 (21 percent) of his goal. “If you agree with me this lawsuit is unjust and if you would like to help, please do so,” he wrote on his funding page titled “Help Bill protect his friends and stay out of jail!”

Whatcott’s lawyers are also arguing that the judge erred in denying costs to Whatcott despite having thrown out the case.
“It would be wrong to put a defendant [Whatcott] to the expense of the litigation process if there is no reasonable cause of action against that defendant on the face of the pleading,” they argued.


“Justice Perell, in striking the Statement of Claim as disclosing no reasonable causes of action, should have awarded the defendant to recover the full legal costs of the motion to strike,” they added.

Biased and unprofessional court clerk calls police and lies to get two quiet and well behaved Whatcott supporters removed from the courtroom.

Dear Friends,

Today was the second day of the hearing into the merits of the $104 million dollar lawsuit against me for infiltrating the Toronto homosexual pride parade with accurate information about the downside of homosexuality and the life saving Gospel while disguised as a “gay” zombie.

To see the redemptive work that got Bill Whatcott and his zombies sued for $104 million dollars go here: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=10526

The hearing didn’t have the most pleasant beginning. The court clerk who was not very pleasant on the first day of the hearing began the second day by warning my supporters that if they made any noise the would be thrown out of the courtroom. No one was making any noise and no one argued with her. My side was well attended with around ten supporters. The homosexual side only had Christopher Hudspeth and no supporters in attendance.

The homosexuals’ lawyer Doug Elliot started his arguments with his false allegation that I accuse all Liberals of child sexual abuse. Elliot also made much use of testimony from one of my zombies who decided to identify himself and agreed to submit himself to cross examination by the homosexuals’ lawyers without a lawyer of his own. Elliot used my zombie’s testimony to bolster his argument that my material was extreme hate speech. Unkown to me, I guess my zombie was passing out flyers of his own, as according to Elliot my zombie “found my flyer to be too extreme.” I guess in an earlier exchange with my zombie in Quebec according to Elliot, I commented my zombie’s flyer was “too boring as it lacked a picture of an anal wart.” At that point I nearly gagged on some water as I tried not to laugh.

On a more serious note Elliot used my zombie’s testimony to build a case for conspiracy, reading excerpts from the zombie’s testimony that I swore them to secrecy and engaged in a long period of planning. Elliot argued my zombie’s testimony regarding my planning and secrecy was compelling evidence in favour of an order to compel me under threat of contempt of court to divulge the rest of the names of my other zombies, financial supporters and friends who helped in other ways. Elliot argued I had no respect for the law, parade rules or the welfare of homosexuals. Elliot also accused me of not mentioning the mass murder of homosexuals in Orlando three weeks earlier, unlike the other parade participants who Elliot alleged were mourning the mass murder.

Maybe Elliot was mourning the mass murder in Orlando three weeks earlier while marching in the homosexual pride parade. All of the homosexuals around us where partying and having a good time. Not a word about the victims of the Orlando massacre was spoken within our hearing range by the homosexual pride participants. We only heard complaints about the hot weather, about Black Lives Matter holding us up, and of course happy talk about drugs, sex and partying.

According to Elliot because my flyers were hate speech and because I used deception to gain access to the parade my supporters had no right to privacy.

During these arguments I actually noticed the court clerk was staring at one of my female supporters an awful lot. After awhile the court clerk got up and went to my female supporter who was quietly texting and ordered her to put away her smartphone or she would be immediately ejected from the courtroom. I noted the clerk never asked me or George Smitherman to put away our phones and we both used ours to text quietly. Nor did the clerk ask the Lifesite News journalist to put away her phone that could have been used for texting and tweeting (which journalists routinely do during hearings and trials). An articling student (I think) was taking notes and used her phone to quietly text or google something and she was not harrassed either. Inspite of the double standard my supporter immediately apologized and put away her smartphone.

Half an hour later I saw three police officers arrive and then two of my supporters were removed from the courtroom. I wondered what was happening so I quietly left the hearing to see why my supporters were being removed from the courtroom. When I discovered the court clerk (who was needlessly hostile for two days) called the police to remove my two supporters I immediately pulled out my camera to record the event and get it on the public record that my supporters did nothing wrong to merit having their right to observe an open court proceeding violated. I vouched for their character and behaviour and demanded they be let back in but to no avail. The police ordered me to put away my smartphone and the court clerk was belligerent and out and out lied that my supporters received multiple warnings and dirsrupted the court multiple times.

When it was obvious we would get nowhere with the court clerk or police I asked my unjustly expelled supporters to wait around until lunch. During lunch I told my lawyers what happened and then two of my male supporters and I accompanied the two expelled ladies to the court office where the women made the case they should be reinstated. After lunch my two ladies went back into the court and the court clerk ignored us.

My lawyer argued the Saskatchewan Human Rights prosecution of my speech was not relevant to this case as Saskatchewan Human Rights law is different from Ontario civil litigation law and the context and content of my flyers delivered in the homosexual pride parade is different from Saskatchewan. Dr Lugosi made strong arguments in favour of free speech and the need to follow the law and not prosecute speech, rather than make new law to restrict speech even further.

Justice Perrell expressed concerns about the rights of Whatcott supporters being exposed to such a massive financial liability as a $104 million lawsuit for the simple “crime” of donating a few bucks to my cause or offering me a bed during my travels. By the afternoon the arguments were wrapped up and me and my supporters went out for a coffee. We all pray that God will help Justice Perrell to arrive at a just judgment. The decision is reserved for a later date.

$104 MILLION LAWSUIT UPDATE, WHATCOTT & HOMOFASCISTS FACTUMS

$104 million lawsuit update, Whatcott & homofascists factums

“The crime?” Depending on who you talk to different people are perceived as criminals and wrong doers in this video. When Smitherman, Hudspeth and their homofascist lawyer Doug Elliott look at this video they think the Christian activists disguised as “gay zombies,” are committing the crime by handing out truthful Gospel literature condemning the homosexual shame parade, the homosexual lifestyle, and charitably offering a way out of it. In fact they believe Bill Whatcott and his supporters should be forced to pay $104 million in damages to the Prime Minister of Canada, the Premier of Ontario, and everyone who marched in the parade or who received the Gospel package cleverly disguised as a “zombie safe sex package.” pray1

On the other hand if you ask Bill Whatcott who the criminals are, he will tell you it is the naked homosexuals exposing their genitals to adults and children on the parade route. Bill will also tell you the Liberal politicians who are in power are criminals for pushing the homosexual agenda, voting to lower the age of consent laws, and because all of the taxpayer’s money they have stolen from hard working citizens to fund this exercise in debauchery, perversion, self indulgence and anti-Christian hate speech. angry4

The hearing that will determine if the courts will order Bill Whatcott to give up the names of his friends and supporters in an effort to financially ruin them and intimidate anyone else from ever speaking out against the homosexual shame parade and lifestyle again will be Tuesday, November 15th at the Ontario Superior Court on 393 University Ave, Toronto. Keep this day in your prayers!!!!

Fighting for freedom of speech, so that one is able to accurately comment on homosexual shame parades from a Biblical and medically based factual perspective isn’t coming cheap. The Whatcott legal team’s bill is currently over $50,000. So far we have raised $25,000. Please consider donating something!
