    Alot of people think that Muslims, as a whole, are America hatin', blood thirsty assholes. These clowns in Afghanistan went out of their way to prove them right.

    Do I have the right to publish political incorrect cartoons? Not really in my opinion. Not when threats prohibit me from exercising that right.
    What if animal-rights activists started killing 12 people everytime a hunter shot a deer. Do you think hunters would still feel they had a right to hunt?
    Face it.These are example of rights being eroded away by blackmail.

    Reverend Jones had every right, under the first Amendment, to burn the Koran.

    Along with that right, comes responsibility.

    You can yell "fire" in the crowded theater, but you're responsible for the riot that ensues. You can say that your neighbor is a child molester, but, if that isn't true, your neighbor has the right to sue for defamation. You have the right to incite crazies to violence, but you're responsible for the results.

    There are no rights without responsibilities.

    from my understanding he was protesting islam and sharia law, namely that islam is evil. But wouldn't try to over analyze things, being that his thoughts on the subject are a little off and over simplistic.

    But that's tthe burden of free speech. For it to be a real right, even people like Fred Phelps, and thiss guy, need to be able to exercise it. So it doesn't really matter if you get it

    Really? Who is saying it? Even FOX news is condemning Jones.
