Every one of those links comes from 1 single website. A pro christian, anti abortion, anti muslim, anti darwin/evolution, pro gun, pro conservative website. I also noticed several derrogitory names thrown around towards other beliefs/faiths. Shocking...

Especially since some christians want to keep interjecting about respecting MY rights., MY religious beliefs, blah blah blah. That is NOT the topic. A piece of advice- Give non christians the same respect you demand & maybe you will get some in return. Otherwise, take it to the christianity forum where everyone will agree with you & give you a little pat on the head.
I agree. All this has really demonstrated is the widespread intolerance in the area. (Maybe in that respect, it's relevant?)

And the "Liberty University" link to JERRY FALLWELL'S school? The master of "hate speech" and called an "agent of intolerance"? The genius who stated 9/11 was "Gods judgment on America's sinful behavior". The intellectual giant who called the Teletubbies Tinky Winky a "homosexual icon". Yea...I'll be sure to take that site seriously.

Well, it's been more than 8 years since 9/11 and this hasn't been true yet. I'd say it's time we STARTED profiling, 'cuz that's who's doing the dirty work!! There has not been one instance in 8 years of a 5 year old or a grey haired granny with a bomb!! I think it's time we went with the MOST obvious!!!

There have certainly been a number of anti-abortion fanatics that have killed and terrorized over the past few years, perhaps we should profile all those folks.

I wonder if Al-Qaeda would consider it a victory, if we, as Americans, gave up everything we stand for in order to defend ourselves against them?

That may be so, I don't know? But that doesn't change the fact that they are TRUE! Mr.Cold

This lawsuit struck at the heart of the First Amendment. It is easy to defend freedom of speech when the message is something people find reasonable. The defense of freedom of speech is most critical when the message is one most people reject. For more information about the case, please contact the ACLU of Massachusetts."
So if I yell "FIRE" in a crowded theater or "I have a bomb" in an airport, the ACLU will send atterneys to defend me?? Freedom of speech you know!!! Do they defend The Nazis, Skin heads and the KKK too? Mr.Cold

Biased "info" with personal opinion thrown in wrapped up in an agenda is not credible info. It's a religious website with an agenda. The info is skewed at best. And again, if you actually read those links, there are plenty of biased, judgmental, bigoted statements thrown around. Go ahead & support that but I won't.

Your "fire" or "bomb" comment does not warrant a reply.

YES, the ACLU has defended some pretty repugnant organizations' right to free speech-just like they have defended Christians and American Military members. I would tell you to go to their site: ACLU.org and read about it but they don't have any pictures on the site.

Gee, If I go to their web site do you think the information there will be slanted?? And no pictures?? WHAT!! I'd have thought under their definition of liberal they would at least have your happy smiling face

Sorry, I try to get my information from unbiased sources and make up my own mind based on facts.
