Will Religious Freedom overrule Free Speech?


When a preacher says he wants his church on fire, he is obviously not talking about burning it down. The preacher simply wishes to ignite flames of passion to spread the spirit of his church like wildfire.

The preacher wants a fire that will purge society and influence democracy with nothing less than belief in his own god and submission to political tenets interpreted wherefrom, so if he says otherwise, he is a red-faced liar.

By virtue of spreading ‘the word’ the preacher will be known to dip into the tax-exempt offering dish for broadcast dollars, which is an unfair government sanctioned political advantage over those who feel oppressed by his tenets of law making, and those who are denied the privilege of speaking to a ready made audience like he possesses.

Condemnation of so-called sinners works well to suppress their very voices from the ears of his congregants – or at least the preacher hopes so.

Whether the preacher is anti-abortion, or anti-gay (never mind gay marriage), or anti-choice, the wildfire that he hopes to ignite is ultimately bent on destroying democracy and replacing it with his own brand of theocracy.

Whether his sermons provide condemnation and indifference that poses physical danger to his scapegoats, or his eye for an eye death penalty argument causes innocent people to be murdered, or his prohibition puts people in prison for using natural god-given learning and coping aids like cannabis, it is understandable that terrified students of history might misunderstand the preacher when he says that he wants his church on fire. [Note: Understanding bad behavior is not incitement.]

Will Religious Freedom overrule Free Speech?

Yes or no, will Democracy choose to outlaw blasphemy of prophets and gods?

If so, then I will legally declare that I am a prophet for my god and legally challenge anyone who mocks my word. I will even provide a proven prophecy that was given to me by my god, which by the standards of other believers provides proof.

If what a prophet declares does not pass, he is a false prophet – at least that is what the Bible says.

Thou shalt not blaspheme my name, or even think of publishing cartoons that mock me, lest you reduce your realm of free speech to a prison cell.

Simply Answer Yes or No, otherwise it will be answered for us.

Otherwise, enjoy your new world theocracy, and pray that a Conservative Republican Catholic President finally takes the throne with a Supreme Court majority, and say goodbye to the powers that once belonged to Protestant America. Bow to the image of that ancient and 'terrible beast' that came out of Rome, and make the Church of England your scapegoat. Go ahead, enjoy!
