    Again, criticizing or condemning something is not illegal in the U.S.. Nor should it be.
    You better go tell Don Imus that he has a killer wrongful termination case.

    The thing that smotes Leftists the most, is that they only condemn Christians as homophobes, when every organized religion in the world considers homosexuality a sin. We never hear Libbos go after Muslims for their disdain of homosexuality. I guess that wouldn't be PC. It's only PC to go after Christians.

    Condemning or criticizing Christians is not taking away their rights.

    I never thought that Christians believed that hell is a location. They may refer to hell in terms of being a, "location", and that's where you're confused.

    Intimidating them, so as to make them afraid to express their opinion is, though. That's the whole motive with the Libbos labeling: racist, homophobe, xenophobe, etc. It's used to scare people into keeping their opinion to themselves.

    Freedom of speech, does not mean there are not consequences to that speech.

    If I go into my work and call my boss "A sanctimonious ****ing asshole", chances are I'm not going to be working there. It isn't illegal for me to say he's an asshole, but it isn't illegal for him to fire me for misconduct either.

    Freedom of speech means I can say it and it isn't illegal for me to say it. Freedom of speech doesn't mean there aren't consequences for what I say.

    Is this REALLY that hard of a concept for you to understand?

    You should better educate yourself on world religions.

    But, at the same time, if you're at work and say that you believe homosexuality is a sin, you boss can't fire you for misconduct. It's not that hard for me to understand, at all.

    No it isn't illegal. Show me the law that says I can't criticize Christianity.

    The same could be said with how the right condemns homosexuals and Islam. Neither of which is illegal.

    I know many Christians who think hell is a place of fire and brimstone and eternal suffering.

    He can if those discussions disrupt the work environment or are not appropriate to that work environment.

    Again the speech isn't illegal, however, there are consequences sometimes for that speech.

    BTW that also goes in reverse. If I am at work and I say "Christians are idiots for believing in a made-up god", that could create a hostile working environment and I can be reprimanded or fired.
