My point was the man exercised his free speech rights and got persecuted for it merely because somebody didn't like what he had to say. (Interestingly enough, sounds very familiar...kinda like what alot of people do in here when they don't agree with something someone else says that goes against their views. )
If it wasn't your point...why did you feel the need to comment that the "preacher was right" in his interpretation of the biblical scripture.
You post that....and then complain that people take you to task for posting it.
I agree with you on the second point, however, think you are dead wrong in your first statement.
Women (Nasty or otherwise) are going to be the reason that Donald Trump is NEVER President!
NO...what Objective Voice said was... "So, what this preacher said according to the word of God is correct." Meaning that he was quoting directly from the Bible. NOT, whether you agree with it being right or wrong.
Folks, we really need to stop being so touchy. No one is telling you to believe this or that or anything like it.
How do you know I'm not?I'm on the preacher's side.
Are you actually equating those things with having your posts debunked on an internet forum? Oh, the soul-crushing agony of persecution by logic.And who said that in order for one to be persecuted they had to be put to death in the process? Slaves were also persecuted, and whipped, nad their civil rights violated, but many lived to tell about it including those who were beaten.
No. He was silenced because he broke the law IN ENGLAND. I don't personally support those laws, no matter how wrong-headed and stupid I believe the preacher (and those like him) to be.My point concerning the preacher is simply this: His voice was silenced not because he broke the law, but because of the content of the message he spoke of.
Spare me the love of Jesus. The message he was sharing was one of hate and intolerance towards gay people in the guise of his religious views...views that I personally consider archaic, backward ass, and stupid.that was more in affect to reel in rowdy crowds at local high school football games than for people of God trying to preach their message on peace, love and harmony in a public venue where apparently they had a right to speak under the law.
The law is stupid. So was his message. Do not mistake my defending his right to speak with me condoning his message. His (and your) messages about gays and lesbians are abhorrent, repugnant, and socially retarded. I don't care that they're biblical, the Bible is an archaic document that belongs in the dungheap. We'd be far better off as a society without these silly archaic prejudices.
Nonetheless, the U.S. is a better system than the British system because people have unrestricted freedom even to put out viewpoints that I find personally disgusting.

And, since the mouth is an orifice for eating food, rather than sexual contact, oral sex would be out for you, as well, right? I mean, we'd want to be consistent, right?
