    On freedom of speech, it's a right but not an absolute one. No right is absolute. So when the exercise of your freedom of speech foreseeably provokes violence from people who then put my life at risk, then my life comes first and your freedom of speech comes second. If only we lived in a better world without violent people who don't react to provocation. But we don't. So till we do, I'd like you to take it upon yourself to consider the impact that your freedom of speech could have, in advance of exercising it.

    Think of freedom of speech like a fast car. If you look after it responsibly and drive safely, then it will go on for years and give you and others a lot of enjoyment. But if you drive it like a madman and run it into the ground, then you can expect your freedom to drive fast cars to be curtailed by your irresponsibility. Freedom of speech is to be cherished - groups like these people in Garland in fact treat it with contempt and risk its future for all of us.


    Liberal bull****.

    No man shall live in threat of his life for declaring that which be believes. The only exceptions are the inevitable shouting fire in a theatre.

    FFS you people love to see Jesus depicted as a clown, gay, laughing on the cross, and Christians don't blow **** up, and if they did, you would have them hunted and killed. FFS, a girl in Indiana speculates about a pizza catered gay wedding and draws death threats, and not one liberal, from the President to whatever worm is running for the job had not one comment. They tacitly approved those death threats.

    Now, here you are tacitly approving and excusing mob violence to silence free speech.

    What we all love about "progressive" ethics is that they are as flexible as a snake

    So what, you believe people should be murdered for mocking others' religion? That's insane.

    How far will they take it? You have the freedom to operate an abortion clinic, but you don't have freedom from the consequences.

    What approval? for what now? I was simply retorting to your notion that I couldn't carry a basic plate carrier, carbine, pistole and tacticool hat. *shrug*

    since the athiests tend to be the most hostile to the religious, wouldn't that put you in great peril?
