When did freedom stop meaning the right to do whatever you should?
I just have a hard time seeing some of these signs and even imagining myself on the same side as these people. Freedom of speech means the right to write and say whatever you SHOULD. People need to stop listening to other people's rendition of religions and ideaoligies and start listening to their own morals. Every religion and free minded philosophy in the world boils down to one word. Morality.
Evidently some people believe they should be saying that God hates you.
"Hate" is a thing made up by humans. I would imagine these people would never go as far as to say that their God is human. So how then, would he even be capable of having this famous human attribute. The word God used to be synonymous with morality.
There's no way to defend the above picture as something you SHOULD do. This picture taken at a veteran's funeral in no way expresses any morality. Funerals aren't a celebration of the persons life. They are purely for the remaining friends and loved ones. The dead person doesn't care about the funeral...they're dead. It's a time of closure and mourning for the people who knew him/her. Whatever problem you had with the soldier is over.
They're ideological exhibitionists with a ravening need for attention. The best response is to give them none. Eventually, they'll find another cause and different shock value postures with which to poke other people in the eye with a sharp stick.

I just had one of those personal flashes of insight. Probably because someone was speaking about defending the USA and all I've been trying to do is look at the ethics of various policies. Then when those policies have been defended with how successful the USA is comparative to other countries,...

Recently I learned that the directors at radio stations usually determine what get's played day in and day out. I used to think that it was the record labels that had this power. Once upon a time I pointed the finger at the recording artists themselves. Until I placed myself in...
