Don’t worry so much about international religious freedom, Oh Canada—how about starting at home by stopping the active persecution of Christians who express their faith openly.

Not only were the murderers NOT accused of any crime at all, the pastor was posthumously convicted of inciting a riot. This truly happened exactly as described although such is so hard to imagine.
