Rahvin at Obama supports Ground Zero mosque. Religious freedom or is he being too PC?

Thread: Obama supports Ground Zero mosque. Religious freedom or is he being too PC?
Message #: 75

A spot-on description of why the Constitution exists.

The Constitution[al] rights we all claim to believe in and uphold were not made for the easy decisions. They were not made for the majority. They were made to protect unpopular minorities of faith and opinion. If you cannot build a building representative of an unpopular faith, then religious freedom does not actually exist. Freedom is, by definition, the ability to dissent from the majority, to be different from others.

This is America's biggest failure - the failure to actually stand up for what we say we believe in.

Thank you for your submission to Science. Your paper was reviewed by a jury of seventh graders so that they could look for balance and to allow them to make up their own minds. We are sorry to say that they found your paper "bogus," specifically describing the section on the laboratory work "boring." We regret that we will be unable to publish your work at this time.

Minds are like parachutes. Just because you've lost yours doesn't mean you can use mine.
