41. It's not in their mental paradigm.
In a vast majority of the countries of the world, intensely provocative speech is illegal. Take Fred Phelps, for example: most other countries would have jailed his family a long time ago. Nazi's? Europe jails them, we give them parade permits and police protection.

In that sense, we are the weird fundamentalists, protecting some of the most bizarre and vile speech, regardless of a sense of human decency. You have any idea how bad a porno has to be to be found obscene at a federal level?
