    Each to his own I guess. Different strokes for different folks.
    Cricket is fun?

    Yes, we are fortunate enough to live in a country where freedom of speech is allowed; however, freedom from consequence is not allowed. WTF were these idiots thinking? "Gee, it would be fun to entice angry Muslims to come and try to kill us while we mock them?" Thankfully, it wasn't worse... but I can't imagine why anyone would think such an in-your-face outrage would be a swell idea.
    Exactly. Im all for free speech but if one looks for trouble you will eventually find it. Its like walking up to a random black man and yelling the n-word to his face. You can say what you want but you need to be aware of the consequences when you do.

    True, but then again you can not harm people because they say something you do not like.

    I get that it's not everyones cup of tea.

    For me personally, Sunday cricket, exercising, running around in the fresh air, enjoying the sunshine with friends and family, laughing and having fun is a lot more appealing than attending a "family day" that offers prize money for the best caricature of any religious figure.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    I don't think so

    freedom from consequence is not allowed

    that's what was said not that it shouldn't be or should

    im getting more of a your not free from consequences in the sense that cause and effect happens vibe from that

    rather then people can do whatever they like to you and thats ok if you open your big mouth vibe

    Maybe you and I wont be doing that but everyone has a different temperament. My gramps always told me when I was a kid was not to go out of your way in trying to offend somebody. Just because you can doesnt mean that you should.
