Hate Speech


Detail from the Hunterian Psalter, Glasgow University Library MS Hunter 229
(U.3.2) circa 1170. Public domain in the US

*In our zeal to craft a statement to show where the Board stands on the
subject of hate speech, the word “Religion” was inadvertently left off. We
apologize for the oversight.*

*Paul Lancaster*

*Chair, Board of Directors*

*Society for Creative Anachronism, Inc.*


*The Society for Creative Anachronism strongly condemns hate speech in any
form by any officers and participants of this organization. The SCA was
founded on and continues to be governed by the concepts of chivalry and
honor, and strives to include and be respectful of all people, regardless
of race, gender, religion, disability, sexual orientation, and politics.
All participants are reminded of and expected to hold to these principles
in participating in this organization and interacting with other people in
person and in all forums, regardless of media.*

*The Board of Directors has heard the concerns of many people regarding the
use of hate symbols in the SCA. The Board is concerned about this matter
and has tasked the President of the SCA to immediately investigate. The
President has the full confidence of the Board, and the Board will act as
necessary to protect the participants of the SCA and to ensure that
chivalry, honor, and respect for all continue to govern the organization.*
