    Yeah Bill, this point got lost in the circular argument that unfailingly occurs in an internet discussion such as this. She OK, Darth?

    Yes, you certainly did dodge. But I'll try one last time. Since you a have such deep concern over hate speech, do YOU, personally, think that bashing Christians is "hate speech?" Or are Christians "fair game?" (And yes, I do already know the answer. I just wonder if you have the guts to admit to it.)

    I already told you. I don't support bigotry. I support the First Amendment. It's a shame that you clearly don't.

    I told you before, its how you word something. Criticism isnt hate speech.

    Just like you, the westboro baptist church uses the same argument. You both have the right to hate speech, and I have the right to point it out.

    Oh okay... so anti-Christian banter is only criticism and not "hate speech." Got it.

    So where does the line between criticism and "hate speech" lie? Or is it completely arbitrary? Is it criticism if your side says it and "hate speech" if your opposition says it? Is there some kind of objective measure we can use? Or is the criticism/"hate speech" threshold one of those, "I can't define it but I know it when I see it" kind of things?

    Yeah, you're right. I just like to point out hypocrisy where I see it. Mission accomplished.
