    Yet it's not as different as you seem to imply. It says, in effect, "if you want to be licensed to do business in Chicago (or wherever), don't say things the local government doesn't approve of."

    Doesn't have to be "just like" to still have a sever dampening effect.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Open acceptance of atheism? Yeah right.
    I don't understand what you are actually trying to argue and assuming there is some sort of misunderstanding here. But, regardless of how stupid an idea is, it's still protected by the first

    It is the government action against the individual or a business that is the supression of the freedom of speech.
    I understand hyperbole. That's what I was pointing out.

    So if the CEO of Chuck E. Cheese says that statutory rape laws are stupid you would support their getting a business license in your community?

    it really isn't hyperbole, because in each instance the state is handing out punishment. It doesn't matter if that punishment comes in the form of a fine, a denial of a license, or incarceration. They all would have the same effect

    yes, because such would be his constitutional right (such rights aren't only guaranteed to those you like)
