    No it's not. In fact, one of my fundamental rights is being able to tell the religous to go shove it

    Just because you can, does not make it the right thing to do.

    wrong, people are born in the US and face some rather high obstacles in relocating to another country. Interracial couples are completely voluntary exercises

    right, like criticizing the klan or marching for equal rights

    again, the accusation of projection makes no sense, so I am unsure why you keep using it. Secondly, yes, your idea of provocation, being resistance to the demands of the irrational, is the entire issue. No one should self-censor because of the demands of religious fanatics or racists

    right, like marching down the street demanding equal rights

    No, I am simply extrapolating your logic to other scenarios and letting you see how bankrupt it is

    Nope, telling some religous nut job to go suck a cock is the perfectly correct thing to do, when the nut job feels his religon should invade on my rights

    Provocation =/= Criticism

    Both can be dangerous. However, provocation unnecessarily provokes violent people. There is a difference between criticizing terrorism and actively provoking terrorists which is why academics and policymakers who criticize terrorists are different from people who burn Korans. I'm sorry that you can't see the difference.

    Having a right to do something is different from it being right to do something. I have a right to do a lot of things you would find disgusting. That doesn't mean I should do them. Understand?
