[QUOTE]Originally posted by NR: [QB] [QUOTE]Originally posted by buckstalker: [qb] NR...you are joking RIGHT? You really don't see the hypocricy in your statements? You stated that you believe that "Mr Robertson" is being rightly punished for something he stated he believes...but it would be unfair for you to be punished for stating YOUR beliefs... Is that right or am I missing something What if his statements were: There is no god... I think blacks are still being mistreated by whites... or, I embrace homosexuality... Should he still be punished for making those statements? [/qb][/QUOTE]You were the one suggesting that I be banned from Allstocks because of what I said under your own "definition" of the 1st Amendment. I never said he was being "rightly punished", I just said there are consequences to the things we choose to say and I happen to believe what he said was wrong. If he had chosen to say there is no god? That is his right, I have no opinion either way. Agnostic: [i]a person who holds the view that any ultimate reality (as God) is unknown and probably unknowable; broadly : one who is not committed to believing in either the existence or the nonexistence of God or a god[/i] I am just trying to point out two things: #1, "Mr." Robertson is a bigot, and not someone I would want to "stand behind"; #2, The 1st Amendment doesn't protect you from the consequences of being a bigot in front of a large crowd. How are those lawsuits for violation of 1st Amendment rights going for Don Imus and Paula Dean by the way? [/QB][/QUOTE]
