    "We" stands for the countries that have "freedom of speech" as their official ideology.
    Freedom is an official ideology, not freedom of speech. Freedom of speech is just one part of overall freedom. Please explain your question. What do you mean by "can we use it?" Your question is just so vague.

    You forgot one:

    Good game, that was fun.



    Well put.
    Expressing disapproval toward offensive speech is different from demanding the speakers' lives be ruined or some other retaliation be carried out.

    Just another example of of political correctness. Where's the tolerance?

    Actually no we don't, because there are almost none of you (those that believe it should be a privilege, granted by, aparently the government or whoever), and those that exist that have that ideology are sociopathic, illogical and rediculous.

    Freedom isn't an official ideology, it's so vague and subjective that it's meaningless without a lot of caviots.

    University Files Charges Against Student who Refused to Stomp on Jesus | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes

    Now, up until the time this student refused to stomp on Jesus he was able to attend class. Now all of a sudden this kid is facing all kinds of discipline from the school. Because the school will not make public exactly what this kid did to deserve their wrath we are left to wonder what is going on. Hopefully this kid goes public and forces the schools hand.

    Added this one link also.

    True, that's why I said freedom of speech is only one part of the concept of freedom and asked the OP to be more specific with his question.

    then you'd go to jail.

    there is no way i would let anyone treat my employees that way. i'd get fired if i had to, but you'd be ejected from the bank.

    In the discussion of speech, no it is not. You're free to say gays should go back in the closet (as someone else did). I'm free to say a person like you should not be hired to any job which requires interaction with people. Your opinion is yours and my opinion is mine. In the context of free speech, there is no difference.

    Are the outcomes different? Sometimes, yes, but that is not the fault of the person who is demanding, it is the fault of the person who complies.

    First of all, what does that have to do with what I said? Second of all, so? The 1st Amendment is not going anywhere, so as long as the government does not start jailing people for thinking gays should go back into the closet, so what?

    Starbucks is not part of the government. The CEO says they do not want someone's business. What's the problem? If you support traditional marriage, then don't spend your money at Starbucks. Starbucks disapproves of what you say and you disapprove of what Starbucks says by not going there. It's the same thing which happened to Chick-Fil-A.
