    So it's illegal in just a small part of California. How does the SCOTUS view this in relation to the First Amendment?

    I suppose we won't know, unless it is challenged, and makes it all the way to the SC.

    No, but unfortunately, shouting fire in a crowded theatre comes to mind.

    Yeah, what jerks, can you believe how they continually refuse to just get along with us? That's the great thing about the United States. We're always doing such a lovely job of getting along with other countries, even by force when needed.

    The amazing thing about this continuing argument over censorship/Muslim outrage is that most Americans seem to have completely forgotten that protest is also protected speech. It seems like any time somebody protests something, you have those claiming that their free speech is being taken away. Don Imus was fired? Where's his free speech?! Muhammad being censored? How dare those Muslims! Jerry Maguire didn't win best picture? That cute kid with glasses was clearly censored by The English Patient!

    I can care less what they protest or say. Its of no concern to me. What is of concern is when our emisaries whom are under their protection are murdered. That will get my ire. If they dont want our emisaries there they need but say so. Killing them is unacceptable.

    I dont think itès the protests that are the problem it is the violence.

    No way in Hell. If Chrisitanity can be mocked and ridiculed, so can any other religion out there. We have freedom of speech, and if anyone dislikes what others say, they are free to ignore it/change the channel/etc. This applies not just to religion, but anything else imo. The freedom to give one's thoughts and opinions without fear of punishment is precious and needs to be protected.
