do_unto_others, the hate speech case was about the KKK.

So... the KKK shouldn't have the right to free speech?  Who's next?  The Free Masons?  And then?  The Green Party?  And then?   The  more radical elements of Christianity?  And then?  Oh, dear.   :rolleyes:

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

Dave, they actually support having elective Bible study courses in public schools as long as they are objective and do not proselytize the views of a particular sect.

Personally, I think the money the Gideons use to pass out those bibles could be better spent, but that is neither here nor there.

re·vi·sion·ism (r¹-v¹zh“…-n¹z”…m) n. 1. Advocacy of the revision of an accepted, usually long-standing view, theory, or doctrine, especially a revision of historical events and movements. 2. A recurrent tendency within the Communist movement to revise Marxist theory in such a way as to provide justification for a retreat from the revolutionary to the reformist position. --re·vi“sion·ist adj. &  n.

I wonder which of the two definitions you are referring to? Regardless, it was a very pithy post. Congratulations! A touch, a distinct touch. :)

Personally, I agree with some of the things the ACLU does, and disagree with others. I see nothing wrong with student led Bible clubs, but would object if the school administration or faculty were involved in any way but as monitors. I also couldn't care less if the Gideons handed out Bibles or copies of Mein Kampf as long as they didn't do it inside the building. If they wanted to hand copies to students as they left the campus, more power to them.

Funny, David, you and I are essentially the same age but I don't remember a time when the ACLU routinely sued "all Bible Clubs and all High Schools".
