Why anywhere? Why should people be allowed to do anything they think they are free to do in life anyplace they want to? Do you ever feel that the only
way to embrace your atheism is to get a group and go discuss it softly in a federal staircase or would that just be silly?
Sounds like a parade to me; actually, more like a circus. The cop was right to break it up and make them leave. Subsequent events, foremost among them
the letter to the Supreme Court, shows that what these people were actually doing was attempting to provoke a confrontation between themselves and the
Court. It appears that in this regard they were successful.
Had that cop, or any cop, not acted...I would bet money they would plan another trip to the Court, possibly with a larger group...until someone
decided to ask them to leave and then they would have sent a letter.
In my opinion this is a provocation...an Act of War upon the Government, the American people and the Constitution. I wonder what the Constitution says
about American citizens serving as agents of a foreign government. That's what those people are.
As each day passes...the position of those that believe that the American government and its people should be subject to the authority of Vatican City
and its so called Pope becomes more offensive to me.
Well i don't see the problem in them having been told not to pray at the supremecourt, but maybe it's also because i look at the freedom of speech
differently due to me being danish.
The way freedom of speech works here is that of course you are allowed to speak freely, but not when it is possibly harassing others, looking down on
them, causing injuri to honor, or mocking others without their strict permission of you to speak freely about that, if you don't have that permission
you must be prepared to face the consequences of the laws surrounding what you said.
The law you posted also says devices that can show impartiality is not to be used in the supreme-court building, and i honestly don't know, i
wouldn't get offended by it if i saw someone practicing their religion as long as it doesn't hurt individuals passing by, but them bowing their
heads, folding their hands and praying is a device of impartiality if you ask me, of course it will all be down to argumentation and rethorics, but
