    You mean should teachers be allowed to promote ideas (in this case socialism) in the classroom? no, teachers should be smart enough to understand that would be wrong...

    Teachers should have objectivity and any "teacher" that doesn't should not be one...

    There is a difference between teaching and brainwashing...

    I have absolutely no problem with teaching economic models, but pandering to one and neglecting or demonizing another is wrong...

    Yes, I do have a problem with these big union socialist teachers brainwashing children in the 4th grade (or even younger) with Marxist nonsense.... Those kids aren't even capable of having an objective point of view on anything other than candy...

    Notice how all I said was "discuss democratic socialism from the perspective of those who prefer democratic socialism" and you reverted to "no." Political correctness at work.

    Alexis de Tocqueville explained much of this in Democracy in America. He figured that in democracy, there is a circle of acceptable social discussion, and once one peers beyond it, they face the pressure of the masses to keep quiet, or are shunned.

    People of the Christian faith are supposed to spread the message, it's part of their beliefs. And when they do that, inevitably they are going to run into opposition. It's a two way street.
    I'm not saying that christians dont do the same thing. You are trying to argue a point I wasn't making.

    oh look all the posters who were calling for Martin Bashir to be fired are now angry about someone they agree with getting fired. Didn't see this coming....

    Freedom of speech goes both ways, Phil has the right to say whatever he wants and so does everyone else; this includes A&E. They have the right to pull him off the air, and everyone else has the right to speak their mind and be against what Phil said and lobby A&E to pull him off the air.

    Rights go both ways. How do people not get this?

    So having a large number of people agree with your beliefs should make it ok to persecute or mock someone for their beliefs?

    You either believe that a person has a right to their own beliefs or you dont. You either believe that a person should be mocked for their beliefs or you dont. But to act like its ok to mock one person for their beliefs and then be outraged when another persons beliefs are mocked is hypocritical.

    You may as well just start typing gibberish because I really don't understand what it is you're trying to say or imply.

    Re: 'Duck Dynasty' star Phil Robertson suspended by A&E

    A&E made a business call. Their ad revenue was theatened so they had to do something to stop the being especially if a large segment of their veiwing audience is LGTB.

    As a Christian, I find no fault in what the Duck Dynasty star said. Biblical scripture does consider homosexuality a sin. But I suppose when an individual who is not of the cloth reaches celebraty status and quotes Scripture during an interview that is unreated to the movie or TV show he/she performs in that person had best bit his tongue so as not to offend rather than speak the truth.

    Free speech be damned. I mean, it's just business, right?
