You do not have the right to braoadcast your bigotry. Agree?

And that is his right.

 So the 1st amendment only applies to some?  Who gets to define bigotry to begin with?  What is that definition by the way?

I am assuming this is in reference to homosexuality or gay marriage.  Many faiths believe this is sin.  Are these people bigots because of their religious beliefs?  The last time I checked the Constitution protects these people on 2 fronts in 2 separate and very clear amendments.

Finally, the SCOTUS has ruled you can broadcast most anything...because it is your RIGHT.

 

No it was inspired by my friends racially bigoted neighbor who took the opportunity of he window being open to walk by and use the N word several times. This is happening in a apartment building in a town with a history of racism. It used to be called caucasian falls.

Luckily or unluckily there are no laws against being a reprehensible asshole in this country.
As ice t said, you're free to say what you want to say but you'd better be smart and watch what you say.

Quoting katy_kay08:

not that I disagree with your overall point but I am curious as to which "2 separate and very clear amendments" you believe offers them "protection"?

I didn't word that very clearly..I apologize. I will make an edit. Two PARTS of the same amendment. Freedom of religion gives them the right to their belief and freedom of speech gives them the freedom to voice it.

it gives them freedom to not be prosecuted for it and it prevents the government from limiting it.  Beyond that,  no one is guaranteed a forum for their opinions.  

Case in point, the site owners have the right to limit one's participation of they feel the opinions being shared violate the rules set by the company.  

I must have missed where this question was about private forums....can you point it out to me?

I know , I just wish it wasnt I guess.

He has the right to think that way, I do not believe he has the right to say it to them.  I am glad my friends are older and wiser today, I would be afraid of them both getting arrested otherwise.

Wow.


That is scary that you think people shouldn't have the right to say something to someone.

I think hate language is the exception.  The n word is not right to say period.

Yep.  This.

You have the right to be a bigot, and you have the right to express it, provided you are not advocating violence to others.

Others have the right to tell you how despicable you are.

Freedom of speech.

dangerous territory.

Either people have freedom of speech or they don't.   You don't get to say you have the right to say whatever you want but other people can't use word you find offensive.

Nothing

He should just walk away.

Or he can call him a bastard back every single time.

Simply because you are offending someone doesn't mean that should be illegal speech.
