I have a growing hostility toward people who say “I see a growing hostility toward religion.”
Free Speech. Nothing more critical or divisive by nature than it. It is one of the more important concepts our society: I’m allowed to think and say as I please and so are you. Neither you or I are to receive punishment for our thoughts nor are they to be impeded.
For instance, when you’re a racist turd, I can’t make you not be a racist turd. And if you defend a racist turd, I can’t stop you from that either. It doesn’t matter how you definitely fit into one of the following:
1. OUTWARD RACIST
2. Covert or secret racist
3. Subconscious racist
I can’t stop you. But here’s the flip side to this: I get to call you a piece of shit. You don’t get to tell me I’m infringing on your rights. Because if I’m supposed to just let you sit and be the pile of crap you were raised to be, if I’m not allowed to say what a fuck you are, guess who’s freedom of speech is actually being taken away. Hint: it’s not you.
Criticism is not is not is not persecution or oppression and it never will be. Most of the time, if you have a view you believe you can’t be argued with, you’re wrong. We “politically correct morons” (read: non-bigots) get to say you’re a shitty person so get used to it.
Guns are only a tool for killing people.
Just a murder apparatus. A slaying gadget. A carnage appliance. A massacre implement. Only a homicide gizmo. Just a hit utensil. A kill device.
That’s all, guys. A means to an end. A Biblical end.
Hopefully they call it “Please-Don’t-Think-America-Is-Like-This Land”
