Re: radical christian preachers on college campuses
Being spit on isn't cool, but being criticized? That's going to happen. I don't know where many get this idea that freedom of speech is "I can say what I want, and everybody has to either agree with it or remain silent". That's NOT freedom of speech... But then again, these same individuals aren't likely to understand what freedom of religion is either, so... =/
Are you Bassoon Girl? I just wanted to say I'm sorry for how mean I was when I was 14/15. I don't know why I was so angry, but I'm not the insecure bully I once was! I'm sure you brushed me off seeing how most of what I said was nonsense, but I thought I would apologize anyway.
Also I agree with your response. Freedom of speech does not mean freedom to not have your ideas criticized.
Also, Lola, I like your response and just wanted to say that I am not condoning spitting on people or yelling at them when you don't like what they have to say.
I'm just saying, if a Jewish person angrily yelled at a pro-holocaust Nazi protester, I would not call the Nazi the innocent victim, and the Jew the hater. (exagerrated example, but trying to make a point.) I'm not sure, the protester just struck a chord with me
