    Come down off the pedestal for a moment and tell me what will we do if one of these films or cartoons or whatever start coming out every month? Nothing?

    Actually, not true. The State of California has many rules and regulations regarding the kind of speech, activities, etc., are allowed on state campuses. They've chosen to ban military recruitment of any kind, ban anti-semetic activities in the classroom and on campus, ban hate groups and hate speech in the classroom and on campus, etc.
    How is asking you whether you agree with something putting words in your mouth?

    Did you notice the question mark at the end?

    For someone who neither agrees and disagrees with the draconian Law in california, you do seem to be very interested in the outcome of such a law

    I am little confused how criticism of Israel foerign policy and occupation of Palestinian territory is deamed to be anti-semitic?

    Is ciriticism of Russia also prohibited and anti-Russian?

    What if I criticise China's actions in Tibet and label them as aprtheid and racist or fascist? Am I anti-sinotic?



    (another question with a question mark at the end - I hope you dont missinterpret this question as me putting words in your mouth)

    Yea ... let the crazy ass people like Westboro or the ass that is intentionally displaying hatred and pushing just right buttons have their free speech. Yet the patriotic loving citizens that are part of this beautiful country and have religious tolerance and do not have hateful hearts should also speak out and show we elect leaders who do not hold these nuts as anything other than hateful instigators.

    No, we should not legislate any such thing and if that idiot wants to incite hatred and endanger our troops and citizens abroad ... that is his his hateful and ugly mindset.

    Let all of us .... condemn the hatemongers on both sides trying to take us off the path of tolerance and making a better world by marginalizing them and let them be condemned by the majority of thoughtful, patriotic and loving people.

    and probably the biggest lie of the decade. (or 3)

    Islam has Exponentially More bad apples, so many more in fact, Inherent in their religion.
    This was just an extra bad week, but people die EVERY DAY in the name of Islam. That is, not just crimes committed by Muslims, but Crimes committed in the Name of Islam against other religions or other sects.

    Someone is counting, at least the ones we even know about:
    30 days only.

    There simply is nothing even close by any other religion. We do NOT all have a similar problem.
    Not remotely.
    Islam is a majority Literalist religion, (Unlike others) and literalist to a Holy Book Not Compatible with Western culture.

    A Christian Fundamentalist is a Missionary, a Muslim Fundamentalist Kills him.

    excellent suggestion

    I hope that if I look up her location that I would not be putting words in her mouth

    I would not want to make that critical error again - there could be an international incident that spirals out of control

    Nothing, absolutely nothing. Principle always comes before anything else.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Islam: Making a True Difference in the World - One Body at a Time

    There simply is nothng even close by any other religion. We do NOT all have a similar problem.
    Not remotely.

    Simply, A Christian Fundamentalist is a missionary, a Muslim Fundamentalist Kills him. (ie, the Philippines)
    1.4 million dead Iraqi Civilians and much of their land contaminated with Depleted Uranium

    Are you aware that the cancerrate in Falluja has increased by 700% since the USA attacked it in 2003>? Why is that?

    If you wish to link war crimes with religious domination, you dont need to go much further than the great Adolf Hitler - a devout Christian!

    Was he Christian misionary chased by fundamentalist muslims?

    NOT Comparable, and you neglected to use the word "Fascist"!, though you did, similarly, degrade to Godwin's Law.
    Nor, note the string topic, are YOU prohibited from YOUR daily anti-USA Hate speech.

    But, what does this say about the free speech movement of 1963?

    And I don't see recruitment as free speech, but rather solicitation.
