    I said he should do something right for a change and not show up. As a staunch advocate of aborting babies he has no place being within earshot of anything Catholic.

    As he is there by invitation and thus the pleasure (and error) of the University, not having him there poses no crisis for the 1st Amendment.

    So since he was invited, you thought he shouldn't show up. Riiiiiiiiiight.

    And then you would be claiming how muslim he was for not showing up to an invitation by a Cahtolic school. Lose/lose situation, I am glad he accepted.

    The fault was the school inviting him, he accepted it. Not his fault and you conservatives that HATE him so much would have played out the worst.

    I support the freedom of people to protest. As I have stated specifically regarding protests at soldier's funerals, so long as they are peaceable and on public property protesters should be allowed to protest.

    The answer is relevant since you don't understand the situation between supporting something and supporting the right to do something. You think they are the same.

    Supporting people protesting is different than supporting the right for people to protest.

    I support the right of people to protest AT the college during garduation, I don't support it though. Those are two different things.

    And I have stated none different. I support the rights to protest, I don't support the actual protest though, they are two different things.

    Well, finally you start to make some sense. Thank you.

    No, they are not. If you support the right to protest you earn the privilege of shutting up when someone chooses to do it at a time and place you find unpleasant.

    I think he means he doesn't agree with the views of the protesters. I could be wrong, though.

    Sounded to me that he was more hacked about the venue of the protest. The only credible First Amendment response to that is "Deal with it."
