A rally *against* free speech?
:shrug:

When it comes to disparaging my faith on public property, that's where I draw the line, said rally organizer Steve Wilson.

Crowd rallies against atheist sign

3. Fundamentalists prove again and again that they do not believe in equality.
Their arguments about being inclusive of religion in public life only ever applies when it's them only.

16. They never have, probably never will, on any aspect of issues involving
equality. They still have restrictions on women's service in their fundie denominations, gays vs heteros, and I can't help but wonder what ethnic and racial biases they still hold.

6. No, a rally telling us Atheists to stay in the closet and burn in Hell is what it is.
To these assholes our very existance is an "attack on their faith". :puke:

10. If the existence of atheists is an attack on their belief
then what do you think they think about the existence of maltheists like myself who believe and are more than willing to call their god the evil asshole of a tyrant that he is.

7. but I thought they were against "politically correct" speech codes?
I mean, for these guys free speech is supposed to be about being as rude, agressive, and in-your-face as possible
