    Etched in my mind are Muslim women giving out a war-cry in delight after 9/11.
    Is it necessary to stoke the fire in this day and age?
    The insistence on archaic language from 1789 makes no sense to me in Present Moment Awareness.
    No, I'm referring to the ignorant dumb asses who actually kill people because of it. We cannot coddle these people and make sure nobody in our country offends them. That is just stupid and giving into their demands. Good Lord! Wake up!

    No one else is to blame for them killing people over a burnt book.

    Absolutely not. Maintaining an atmosphere which facilitates the spriti of religion requires freedom of action and thought. To require observance of religious artifacts and texts as off-limits, via law, relegates religion into the realm of totalitarianism and authoritarianism, which is not religion at all, but is an attempt to control hearts and minds by force. THat is the problem when there is no distinction between religion and politics.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
    -C G Jung

    Absolutely not. Those are expressions of speech, protest, and dissent. As such they must be upheld, not banned.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    No even though I hate when I see Americans burning the American Flag, I will be damned if I ever let the action be banned.
