Christian student sues college for free speech rights
« on: March 21, 2014, 07:46:22 AM »
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin

Free speech is never free.

Queen Victoria permitted totally free speech in a corner of Hyde park, after the Chartists gave her a bit of a scare. You can go there, say absolutely anything, and no one can touch you for it. I do think it was an elegant move to put Speakers Corner facing a fully working gallows (the Tyburn Gallows you read about in Dickens) as a gentle reminder.
