According to Andreas Heldal-Lund, Free Speech carries no responsibility and this would explain why he condones death threats against members of the Scientology religion and why he created an Internet “contest” that incites other extremists to commit crimes against the Church and its members.
Heldal-Lund claims that if anything is wrong or inaccurate on his website he will correct it, yet he failed to remove death threats posted on his message board.
Andreas Heldal-Lund’s hate for religions is well known. In June 1995 Heldal-Lund was arrested for conducting a hate march against the Lutheran Church at their anniversary.
Heldal-Lund claims that the information on his website is publicly available. However, he omits to mention that over the past several years he has been publishing the names of parishioners, merely because they are Scientologists, on his website ridiculing their religious beliefs and certainly Heldal-Lund did not ask their permission to mentioned their names on his hate site. Perhaps Heldal-Lund considers the violation of Scientologists’ privacy “free speech” too.
