    I see (I'll pretend I don't know that the difference to you is that you liked what one kid said, but not the other). He didn't have the first amendment right to free speech and he also wasn't protected by freedom of religion but he did violate the establishment clause. Pretty much the Constitution only worked against that kid, I guess. Explain to me how he "broke" the establishment clause, and if you believe he did then what do you think should have happened to him for violating all those people's civil rights? How many months in jail? Certainly, his future should be trashed, I'm sure you would agree.

    20 lashes with a wet spaghetti noodle would be good. As far as his his future I've never seen pandering to the audience as a good thing. I'd rather be challenged.

    Yeah, s'pose.
    Boring, though, and any kudos will come from boring people.

    Evidently bigotry has gone out of style. I'm so sorry for your loss.

    Brave would have been for somebody in the audience to tell him that this was not the proper venue for him to engage in verbal exhibitionism about his sexual deviancy to the public humiliation of his parents.
