    This isn't one of those cases. This is a case about fully protected free speech

"And for Christ to have been crucified and laid on the cross for three days where he not only bled to death, he shat himself and he peed himself to death. So if 'Piss Christ' upsets you, maybe it's a good thing to think about what happened on the cross."
    Serrano needs a history lesson if he believes Christ hung on the cross for three days, but then what would he know about it anyway?

    that is not relevant to this discussion. lampooning someone who has been worm food for centuries is not ever going to violate the law unless the muslim extremists get into power and flush the constitution

    No, you're just not getting it. You have failed the test. You don't support and defend free speech. Period.

    Free speech is offensive speech. That's why it has to be defended.

    You certainly seem offensive enough on these forums, calling people all sorts of nasty names. Why is it that you are not censoring yourself?

    Defending the right to spout off offensive speech and defending the speech itself are two different things. One can both criticize speech and defend the right to say it.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Why can you? Why can't anyone?

    Because the First Amendment allows the American people to be jerks, and that includes Pamella Geller..
