Freedom of Speech is FREEDOM of Speech.
PERIOD.
It's not Freedom Of Speech For Those With Whom We Agree And Like.

I really despise the world church of the creator.
I have major hate issues with this group of neo-nazis parading as englightened thinkers and truth disseminators.

HOWEVER.. they have every right to gather in a public building for a meeting.
The idea .. just the *thought* that the city council would attempt to block their use of the building is so offensive.
SO offensive.

Because it means that the city council, some of our elected officials, have no basic understanding of the most important part of our constitution.

It makes me just *seethe* with anger that we feel just fine and dandy about censoring things that we find personally distasteful, completely ignoring the fact that, 50 years ago, no group of blacks would be allowed to gather and talk about equal rights laws without this EXACT sort of backlash.
This EXACT reaction.

It was wrong then, it's wrong now.
Let them gather... don't give them this power.. .don't HAND them the fear they'll only interpret as awe.
