    What hate speech do you need to preach the Bible?

    Also, what about people who will manipulate the word to fit an agenda, but be cleared because they can claim it is teaching the gospel? Let's not forget that passages in the Bible are used by groups to preach everything from racial intolerance to war to mass suicide to snake handling. There is no one widely accepted interpretation of the Bible - therefore it is dangerous to say that referencing it should always be protected speech. We should let cultural norms dictate what is and is not acceptable.

    Alex, preach it brother! I am so sick of hearing that Christians are intolerant, we have become the group that isn't allowed to voice our opinions (based on the word of God ~ BIBLE) while all other groups can and do voice theirs. if we speak it's intolerance, well their voice's are intolerant of my beliefs! Please whether you agree or disagree with what we say, at least allow us the same opportunity as you ~ to be able to say it. Rita Viselli Orange County Single Moms Ministries Examiner

    Guys like you are scary. You obviously don’t believe in freedom of speech and religious expression, both of which are foundation to the principles upon which our nation was founded.

    “Hate speech” is merely a way to censor free speech. Don’t like what I have to say? Call it hate speech and then pass a law saying such speech is illegal.

    You write, “There is no one widely accepted interpretation of the Bible.” Precisely the point. And because there are differences of interpretations, everyone should be entitled to express their views freely and openly. Yet, you believe referencing the Bible in ways not to your liking is “dangerous” and should not always be protected.

    Sounds like you would like to limit freedom depending on what is in vogue with the majority at a given time. So I guess that means that if Christians gain majority status in the world, you would be okay with Christian cultural norms being imposed on you, including what you can and cannot say?

    I can't believe some of these post, you must be the same group that voted for obama and say you are Christians! God help us.. get your heads out of the sand people and stand up for your Nation and Christian rights before what's left is gone!!!!!!
    Gay is wrong, Sin is wrong, molestation is wrong, porn is wrong, come on folks just say it!

    The above comment is why our Christian Country has gotten so rotten and weak. Christians are not weak and neither was Jesus he spoke out against sin and the leaders of that day and even drove them out with a whip in the temple.
    If you don't like our Christian Nation then leave and don't let the door hit ya!
    I m so tired of these weak grace, grace, grace idiots that embarrass true patriot Christians. Go home! Cause you don't belong here and nether do muslims that don't assimilate and take your liberal professors with you...

    How sweet, Christians standing up for their right to hate. Heaven forbid Christians be prevented from spouting their ugly bigotry.
    Nobody is trying to stop Christians from discussing their superstitious non-sense. But Christians do not get to use their ignorant superstition to discriminate or cause harm to others. The time for that has passed.
