Free Speech

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

No matter whether you come at this as a Christian or as a non-Christian, the freedom to speak is what has made democracy possible for so long. Free speech entails free thinking. Sure it irks me when I see some vile t-shirts that declare stupid things (I am thinking here of the “Big Johnson” or any other sexually suggestive t-shirts that declare the wearer a lady’s man or a sex toy)…but I do not want to ban people’s freedom to say what they think. If they think foolish thoughts, I should also have the freedom to try to encourage them to think wisely.

Here’s an article from the Wall Street Journal yesterday that is a 3 minute read on some of the latest the SCOTUS is going to be hearing on free speech. Take a look.
