    Hell no!

    Why don't we just make it illegal to insult any religion? I mean why play favorites? This is getting stupid. We do not appease terrorists which is what the Islamists involved in the violence are acting like, period.

    Wrong.

    I'm not going to lift a finger to help him if his rights are getting infringed, since there are more important concerns. It doesn't mean I support the infringement.

    Try applying a little logic. I have been very clear about this. Maybe you're just having trouble following the subtle nuances? It does require a bit of thought to follow me on this, I grant you.

    What I said is that we have bigger fish to fry when it comes to freedom of speech than this. In a idea world, freedom of speech would be absolute. It isn't, and I have a hard time caring about the rights of some asshole who wants to incite violence when the rights of honest people to put nudity and curse words on tv is still being infringed.
    Game. Set. Match.

    We get it.

    You want us to surrender our freedom of speech "but only when it might offend a ME fundie."

    You are a weak-minded man who lacks patriotism, and yet, I will still defend your right to say such annoying things.

    I'm really only interested in discussing this with X, honestly. Although he disagrees with me, he is civil and fair minded.

    What really irks me is the hypocrisy of an argument in defense of this guy's right to indirectly incite violence , only too happy to become free speech champions the minute it coincides with a chance to bash Islam. But talk to these same folks about nudity or cursing on TV, and they're right there with an excuse for censorship. Priorities, people!

    I think private TV network should be able to display whatever they want. Some are able to (like HBO regularly has full nudity). Doesn't the government partially fund the broadcasting for the basic channels though? I think that's how they are allowed to force certain types of censorship.

    And yet you don't seem to have that same hard time having deep concern for the feelings of extremist assholes who oppress, assault, vandalize even kill others based on their gender, religion, political views, sexual orientation etc.
