    If you physically attack someone you do not get a "pass". The government can tell you not to use those words.

    Actions by opponents

    During a picket in Seaford, Delaware on May 21, 2006, one person broke through police lines and assaulted WBC members who fled into a police van. Five people faced criminal charge.

    Early in the morning of August 2, 2008, someone set fire to a garage near the Westboro Baptist Church, causing an estimated $10,000 in damages.

    On November 30, 2010, disabled Army veteran Ryan Newell was arrested in his parked SUV outside the Wichita, Kansas, city hall while members of WBC were in a meeting inside. Guns and ammunition were found in the back of the SUV, and Newell was charged with weapons violations and felony conspiracy to commit aggravated battery. On June 23, 2011, Newell pled guilty to impersonating a law enforcement officer and was sentenced to two years of probation. Newell received public support for his actions, and fundraisers and websites were created by the public to help in his defense.
    The guy who dressed up in the case we are talking about may or may not have been trying to make a point that he believes Muslims are wrong, but it does not matter. Plenty of groups find parody of their icons to be offensive, we should make an exception for Muslims's?

    Part of the point of the marketplace of ideas is that eventually "the better" or "the right" idea will win.

    I a not offended by things like this. For example I find the show South Park hilarious and it has crossed many lines of socially acceptable limits, so what?

    so Christian judges can't rule on cases dealing with Christianity?
    The point is that Sharia, and Islam, are united with regards to law, religion, culture, etc. They cannot be separated and therefore the Muslim Judge cannot be impartial while the Christian one can be.

    I think we should impose Sharia Law on that judge, and cut his tongue out for saying bad words to the accused.

    Legally, pretending to be zombie Muhammed is not fighting words. Neo-Nazis can march, and antiabortion demonstrators can yell at people entering a Planned Parenthood. Think more: Saying something like "I'm gonna enjoy stomping your face in", or telling someone to walk over a rotten bridge, or running around telling people who don't know any better that there's an emergency.

    "that by their very utterance inflict injury or tend to incite an immediate breach of the peace"

    If the guy was mocking something besides religion I doubt he would've been assaulted.

    "Who funds Muslim-baiting in the US? "

    "To put it simply, without these "experts," their donors, and Fox News (their media mouthpiece) you would never have heard that a Muslim community center (the "Ground Zero Mosque") was being constructed in New York City. And the center certainly would not have become a major news story.

    A new report details how a small group of donors and 'intellectuals' have pushed Islamophobia into the mainstream."

    Two things.

    1. Could you find a source of "Muslim Baiting" that is not supplied by a Muslim news orqanization please, and;
    2. I think that most people only need to here the very real news reports of Muslim suicide bombers, the 911 attacks, the attack on the Cole and the embassies in Africa, the shootings of US Soldiers by Muslim US Soldiers etc etc etc already pretty much established the phobia about Islam.

    Get a grip and use some perspective.

    A. No
    B. It was not intended as an insult though I can see now that it is written like one... I apologize.
    C. I am not taking the view of one that is fearful of Islam, so no phobia here.
    D. We haven't talked about government propoganda so I am not sure how you arrived at that conclusion and you use a source that mocks Fox News as a mouth piece for Islamaphobia with a source started by and run by Muslims that has been accused of being a Muslim mouth piece against Islamaphobia. THAT sounds amateurish.

    yeah. this judge's ruling offends me. actually, now that I think about it, the fact that this guy is a Muslim offends me as a Christian. how dare he disagree with me in public! wonder if you can find out online where he lives, this guy might need a good remedial choking....
