I think the vast majority of "big" business is not corrupt, and that those who ARE, and break the Law, should be punished by the Law.
I think the freedom of speech > religious sensibillities of violent extremists. Our society does not have a "Freedom From Being Offended".
And again, History (of the kind written by the non-religious) would indicate it's not, in fact, slander in many cases.
I want equallity under the Law. If our President is going to denounce say, a small self-financed Youtube Film critical of Islam, he should equally denounce a partially State-Funded Artwork created with the sole purpose of being criticial of Christianity, or better yet, not State Fund it.
I don't think consistency is too much to ask for from our leaders and laws, do you?
Agreed. As long as it does not infringe on anyone elses rights. I'm quite Libertarian, so of course I said with freedom and tolerence, more than (R) or (D) if you ask me.
But again, we do not in the country posess a "right to not be offended", nor does there exist a "Right to Commit Acts of Actual Violence Because We're Offended By Percieved Intolerence".
Based on your answers you agree with everything Obama said.
Everything you say he says in his speech.
Now, I know you hate the man, so maybe thats why you are trying to make issue out of something that is not there.
