Quote# 7408

When your deviance keeps me from using the Bible to criticize your behavior then you have taken away my civil rights. As of yet, in this country it hasn't happened. But people like you would like nothing better. When the thought police start telling me what I can say or not say then you've got a problem with me and I will use any manner possible to fight that. At that point it is no longer a republic it is a dictatorship.

We don't want you to use the Bible because it's outdated and contradictory. We want something that makes SENSE.

Unfortunately for you in this case, free speech is not meant to be 100% free. It's supposed to be free only as long as it doesn't harm anyone else, i.e. only while it doesn't turn into hate speech and doesn't call of crime or violence. What you would like to say heavily borders the hate speech area, therefore, some people WILL object to it.

Sure, whatever! However, me talking back at you when you criticize me, that is NOT a violation of your human rights. It's me exercising MY human rights.

Btw, with freedoms come responsibilities. In a society, you are expected to behave in a way that will benefit both you and those around you. You know, "treat others the way you want to be treated". For non-sociopaths, that's basically the only rule that is needed.

You are not the world's official Criticizer-in-Chief. You are not persecuted by anyone telling you this.

And yet if someone criticizes you, it's the persecution complex. Fucking hypocrite

You can criticise it all you like. What you can't do is use your book to suppress it.

Kim Il-Davis in your country; a certain decision by the SCOTUS on a particular 26th June. Those bakers in Northern Ireland losing their appeal, thus Section 5 of the Public Order Act given an extra legal steroid boost.

Don't say you weren't warned.

But actually, you've reminded me of something: curious is it not, how ranting street preachers - especially those who use threats of 'Hell' - are conspicuous by their absence here in the UK...?!

No British equivalent of the WBC here. The law is good. The law works.

Romans 13:1-5, don't forget. Therefore you've proved that your own 'God' is a dictator who's worse than Hitler. Enjoy your paradox, bitch.

When you think you can inflict your stupid Biblical beliefs on others is where dictatorship often begin.

This idiotic belief that you could live in a free and prosperous society under Biblical law or church dogma shows you don't know the Bible or history.
