    Non-responsive answer. I'll try again: Is the right of free speech protected in the First Amendment?

    Here's the text:
    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    So "liberals" advocate "holler"ing fire in a crowded building? Is that the sort of speech you are complaining of?

    I'll just assume that is a ridiculous red herring and you can't come up with any coherent examples.

    Scamper on back when you can think of a legitimate example to go with your allegation.

    Damn, is this thread still going?

    What is there left to discuss?

    Then again, I skipped reading all 25+ pages of it, so perhaps there is something in there...

    However, my take on the variously located lingering phrases mentioning a deity (I think that covers most of it) is that much bigger issues exist. It's almost a tradition for such to be the case, not any real attempt to create a theocracy.

    Not that I approve of any relationship between government and religion (outside the obvious personal religion(s) of the various government officials).

    But it just seems a waste of time to...waste time on such minor issues.
    Education.

    This is another case of a court making laws contrary to constitutional enumerations.
