    The Bill of Rights #1 Amendment was not written to protect popular speech, but to protect speech that would be Unpopular. And it does not protect malignant speech like “Fire!” in a crowded public place….or threats of violence.
    -
    Modern Liberals have wrongly stretched restrictions on protected speech even to the extreme of punishing children in schools for praying over lunch and choosing Jesus to write about in English assignments and drawing a picture of a gun.
    -
    The trend to gag speech that is contrary to PC speech no doubt will get worse, even to the point of persecuting Christians who quote Bible scripture that is relevant to a culture that is sinking to the lawless times that Noah lived in before God solved the problem with a world flood.

    Long ago, a Chief Justice of the Supreme Court said “Freedom of speech does not give one the right to yell FIRE in a crowded theater.” With this (and other) freedoms, a mature citizen is expected to exercise his rights responsibly. I don’t think the authors of the Bill of Rights meant that “Anything goes!”. Using one’s First Amendment right to whip up hatred and exhort violence against others is only abusing these hard-won rights. What goes around, eventually comes around.

    Well, yeah; but if it wins elections for our Republicans, it can’t be ALL bad.

    Unfortunately, our founders did NOT say “A” religion, they just said “establishment OF religion”. They meant a STATE religion, but it has been hijacked to mean the (physical) establishment of ANY religion. (unless it’s not Christian.)
    I’d love to see the reaction if a Muslim gave the invocation at the Daytona 500!
