Gay rights foe Peter LaBarbera on Thursday said that he was detained by Canadian border officials under the nation's hate speech law.

In a series of tweets to his nearly 4,600 followers, LaBarbera, who helms the Christian conservative group Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH), tweeted his own story.

“Breaking: initial judgment by Canadian Border Security is to NOT allow me to enter Canada based on alleged viol. of 'hate propaganda' law.”

“I'll appeal initial judgmnt barr'g my entry into Canada for speech Sat, based on alleg tht I violate Canada's 'hate propaganda' law #tyranny,” he messaged.

The Weyburn Review reported that LaBarbera appealed the decision and was allowed to enter the country.

“Canadian customs officials reverse earlier dec. + let me stay in country to give my speech on Saturday. Win for true tolerance + diversity,” he tweeted.

LaBarbera is scheduled to give a talk Saturday at the Saskatchewan Pro-Life Association (SPLA) conference Weyburn. He was detained and initially refused entry at the Regina airport.

“Obviously, I had been flagged as a result of a campaign by the leftist group Intolerance Free Weyburn, which is specifically lobbying the Canadian government to deny my entry into Canada as the alleged purveyor of 'hate,'” LaBarbera wrote at his group's website.

“After questioning me about the purpose of my scheduled presentation at the SPLA event; rifling through my luggage, which contained numerous books and literature related to homosexuality (pro and con); examining the contents of my laptop and my cell phone; playing a DVD of my speech Wednesday at Sinclair Community College in Dayton, Ohio; and critically viewing AFTAH’s website – a preliminary decision was made to deny my entrance into Canada on the basis that my speech at the SPLA would violate Canada's 'Hate Propaganda' law (essentially the potential for 'public incitement of hatred' against a group of people based on their 'sexual orientation'). The Orwellian experience at Customs dragged on for more than three hours as a formal document was issued outlining my denial of entry under Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (citing the Hate Propaganda code). Finally, after 1:00 A.M., I was released pending my appeal of the decision today (Friday). My passport was seized until I arrive back at Customs today at noon for my appeal before a 'Minister’s Delegate Review,'” he added.

LaBarbera has previously argued that the “homosexual agenda” is corrupting “every major institution” and blamed gays for ruining Thanksgiving.
