    Just like those uppity negroes and women did. I mean the constitution already says ALL men are created equal right. I mean, hell, we didn't even have to include women....but we did.

    In short....no they're not. Yes some are. You being one of them.

    I think it's still pretty funny. And for the record, while no one is calling for that on this board I personally know several people who think that "hate speech" (loosely defined as anything they don't agree with) shouldn't be protected by the 1st amendment and should be made illegal. And I'd just like to note that a couple of them look/dress just like the girl in the picture. Maybe that's why I find it funny.

    What amazes me is how such seemingly intelligent people lose their ability to to discern the difference between judging a person and judging their action, between freely opposing a symbolic jester and voicing hate mongering rhetoric.
    RB hasn't told anybody what to do, he has just asked that we consider our actions before doing something.

    What does any of this have to do with First Amendment Rights? Is someone calling for Ron Brown to be criminally charged for his remarks?

    You know I haven't really been following this whole Ron Brown thing very closely, what exactly was he voicing his opinion against? I know it has something to do with gay people and jobs, but I'm not aware of the specifics.

    I agree, I don't understand why Christians get so upset when you tell them they believe stupid made up stuff. It's not like I'm calling THEM stupid or made up. I just happen to think their whole religion is a joke and their beliefs and lifestyle surrounding those beliefs to be moronic. But inevitably most of them get upset about that kind of thing and I, for the life of me, can't figure out why.......

    I love Christians, but I hate their religion. See how awesomely tolerant that is of me.

    I didn't say they were my friends, just people I know from classes.

    A. It is the only RB thread on the first page.

    B. It was the poster's very first post. By the way, welcome to HuskerMax!

    It's understanding that makes it possible for people like me to tolerate a person such as yourself.
