You keep using that phrase "free speech" ...

... I do not think it means what you think it means.

In unrelated news, Christians are constantly complaining that they're being persecuted and censored simply for their beliefs.

I guess that's called "juxtaposing," right?

I always thought the attraction of free speech absolutism was that it made these kinds of controversies impossible (unlike up here in Canuckian Fascistan, where we have to have laws and tribunals to sort this stuff out). And yet, they occur all the time down there, even when it involves inarguably benign expression like this.

I swear, they're going to end dealing with bus ads featuring naked lesbians masturbating with Bibles if they don't knock it off.
