    No one said Fck the constitution just saying no need to be fckn stupid with it and being a dckhead at the same time. If you went up to some older Jews and started chanting nazi sh#t and one of them hits you with a baseball bat you might say "IT IS MY RIGHT" but Im pulling for the Jewish guy and supporting his right to respond that way.

    Well Gee there was a nut around here that actually picketed churches with some stupid stuff. Nobody even called the police to remove him. We have seen idiots protesting at the funerals of servicemen, nobody assaulted them at all.

    So if they were drawing nasty pictures nobody would care and of course they are doing this at their place not in front of a place of worship.

    Now I don't think it a good idea and I would not do it because I respect religion and see no benefit to doing it other than to possibly catch some nuts and eliminate them. Simple!!!

    I am not OK with it but the most that can be done (and I know some folks who have done it) is to screen them from the folks at the funeral. The constitution protects objectionable speech from the government.

    I stay away because I might get into trouble or get hurt from protesting their foolish actions. Simple!!!

    If sh!t goes down, I really don't have any sympathy for these people. Its one thing doing it at some community center. But doing it outside their mosque is just going our of the way to provoke. Sh!tting on their guy in front of their place of worship.

      Well Gee not having sympathy is different from indicating that they don't have a constitutional right to do foolish things. Simple!!

        I think everybody understands it is constitutional. The debate is whether it is advisable.

        I actually don't have a problem with an exercise or event where people draw Mohammed. In a way it is healthy. It is a reassertion of our basic freedoms, ones that some muslim groups would prefer us lose in the name of their religion.

        However, when you push it past a certain point, all you are doing is provoking and inflamming.

        I would think most gun supporters would support a peaceful event where gun owners gather and peacefully and lawfully brought along their guns - assuming open carry is allowed. However, I don't think anyone of us thinks it is a good idea for a guy to come with his large assault rifle and parade it around in front of a little league baseball game.

        You know the answer to that.

        You think ole avatard sat around wringing his hands when they have a Jesus in Piss day? Hell, no, he'd be screaming at the top of his lungs demanding that the government fund more of this.

          I don't see too many thinking it is advisable on this board so that is not a debate here as I see it.

          Now I like the idea of the say FBI doing this as a sting to folks who would do violence.

          I surmised as much from your comment as you did from what you perceive these people to be doing.
          You can do as you wish, within the law. In your hypothetical post here, which has nothing to do with me and everything to do with your imagination, that person has no legal right to hit me. It's sad that you support illegal behavior, and can't seem to grasp that he wouldn't have that right.
          You know, a wise man named John Kerry once said "In America, we have a right to be stupid", or something to that extent.

          Absolutely not. That version of "free speech" and "art" has gone on for years with nary a peep from the left (looking at you avatara :wink: ) about how the artist deserves what they get if someone lashes out at them. I love selective outrage, it's quite amusing to watch ;)

          Well sometimes an individual can do things that the government is not allowed to do. Some are actually illegal and you have to pay the price if you choose to do so. I can't imagine anybody having cause to hit you.

          Did he do this at the Church? No I did not wring my hands. I am a tolerant mofo. So if somebody blasphemes God, I don't care. But Most people would not do it at a church.

          short of the individuals being on the physical property of said church, the location is irrelevant.

          I agree!!! Today no matter where you might do thins everyone would find out about it. Not if there was no publicity then the location might make a difference.

          I need to know. If you were nearby would you join these brilliant individuals exercising their constitutional rights in front of the mosque? I see people all the time on FB and in person threatening physical violence to those that step on the American Flag. Are you as disappointed in those violent reactions to a constitutional right.

          See post #15.


          Disappointed? In people I don't know? Strange.

          You were upset I approved a Jewish person reacting with violence for nazi provocation. I pointed out how violence is threatened about the flag. I asked if that bothered you too.

          I will bite. I would not join because I don't draw well, tend to stay out of trouble, and generally am not so competent in a fight. I am not disappointed if someone took offense to those stepping on the Flag. I would be if they did not take the consequences of their action.

          If I saw someone around here disrespecting the flag I might call them on it and if they assaulted me I would use both civil and criminal means to make them pay. We fly the flag around here not disrespect it. Simple!!!
