Hmmm. Well if I tell my 12 year old son he is grounded for a week it is quite different from the government passing a law that says all 12 year old males are grounded for a week. Does that help?
Yes, I agree. That's what parents and governments often do.Censorship is when someone wish to prevent or dissuade others from watching, hearing or reading material they deem inappropriate.
No, they were not. They were not trying to ban the Koran.That is what the Rev and his cohorts were doing with 'Burn the Koran Day'.
But of course it does.It makes no difference that they didn't do it officially.
Are you saying that this Florida preacher is the equivalent of the Spanish, or some other, inquisition? Advanced hyperbole doesn't advance your argument whatsoever, In fact it only lends to the ongoing hysteria swirling about an obscure American citizen who used his First Amendment rights.Many, many book-burnings (most of those during the Inquisition, for example) were not carried out by the government of the day but by self-appointed moral guardians. It was censorship then and is censorship today.
