    Wanting them not to protest and saying they don't have the right to are two separate things. I am exercising my 1st amendments rights saying they should have chosen not to.

    Well either way, your trolling is at an end, unless you or someone else has something relevant to say, you may have the last word. I'm done, there, have your last word trolling.

    Not to mention the children who were dressed up in garbage bags. What kind of parent would ever allow that?

    It's not when--it's where. They can't trespass on private property. They shouldn't be allowed to dress children up in garbage bags and have some goof in an Obama mask chase them around.

    They're not only hurting the image of the Catholic Church, they're making the pro-life movement look like a bunch of crazy zealots.

    Which other group uses their kids in this capacity? Oh yeah, the Westboro Baptists Church...

    I just found the Political Cartoons at the Lincoln Mesuem very telling about another period in our history when the country was divided along political lines.

    So, don't forget the last 8 years, just check the museum in Springfield if you're out that way. Interesting stuff.
    What do you mean was? Last time I check we still are, please enlighten me how the country is somehow united under Obama.

    TNE was speaking specifically of when the protest occurred, not where.

    Why not? Didn't look like anyone was being hurt.

    Were they there representing the Catholic Church? It didn't appear so to me, so how are they hurting the image of the church?

    You're joking, right? You need to watch some videos on protests by left-leaning groups sometime. They use children as props all the time.

    WRONG, I didn't want the protest at the college during graduation.

    Don't put words in my mouth.

    Since the protesters were at the college that was common sense.

    I said unless you or someone else has something RELEVANT to say. Learn to read. Your accusation was relevant to me.

    I was talking about protests at the college. But common sense eludes you I see. Why would I care what happense ELSEWHERE other than the college at their graduation?

    Play on words is all you got, sad.

    Garbage bags? When I was a kid, we dreamed of having enough money to afford garbage bags to dress up in...

    And since the graduation is a part of the college education, you are upset because Catholics are protesting other Catholics getting edumacated.

    Yeah, that makes so much more sense than them protesting the presence of an abortion aficionado at a Catholic graduation exercise.
