    One could often say the same about you, yet I've never known that to stop you from posting.


    There are plenty of places in this country where you can get up on a soapbox and say whatever you want. There's no reason to corner someone to make them listen to you.

    Not following the proper protocol and submitting his NEW speech for approval.

    Yes, you've already made it clear that you think he's some kind of Christian super hero. Breaking rules and bending the law!

    I wouldn't care if his speech were on behalf of Satan. I'm an adherent of no religion. I just like the fact that he broke the rules and spoke his mind.

    It's true that he didn't follow protocol, but that wasn't an error.
