    In a speech to students in Berlin, the secretary of state defended Americans' rights to be what they want to be.

    BERLIN  Secretary of State John Kerry offered a defense of freedom of speech, religion and thought in the United States on Tuesday, telling German students that in America "you have a right to be stupid if you want to be."

    "As a country, as a society, we live and breathe the idea of religious freedom and religious tolerance, whatever the religion, and political freedom and political tolerance, whatever the point of view," Kerry told the students in Berlin, the second stop on his inaugural trip as secretary of state.

        Get real, we don't have anything of the sort, we have crybabies who can't face a god because they have too much evil in their harts. So they think if they don't have a god, then they don't have to answer for their evil deeds, and don't have to worry about morals. Well when you find yourself in a bad place and need some kind of place to get away from it all, you don't have to worry about where you will go. Just leave the rest of us who believe in a god alone. They bashed Christians and got rid of god from this country, and replaced it with Islam, I hope your ready for your hands to get cut off when you steal, or rob someone, because Islam has no morals of grace only the laws of man, which by the way is all we have now because of idiots like you. Hope you like Islam, you'll  be killed if you don't become one of them.

          Well, you certainly have the right to think that.

          Have you forgotten - we were talking about religious freedom and tolerance!

          Not much of that coming from you, is there?

      The rest of the world doesn't know it.  That doesn't absolve Kerry of spreading lies.  We don't practice freedom of religion here in the US.  When Christians can dictate religious material in our science classes, we don't have religious freedom.  When we have "In God We Trust" on our money and "under God" in the pledge, we don't have religious freedom.  When the President of the United States swears his oat of office TO God, we don't have religious freedom.  When you can have any religion you want and be treated as an equal, but if you have no religion, you're a freak... then we don't have religious freedom.  End. Of. Story.
