"Hate Speech"


Remeber the uproar from mid-September about the Arkansas Republican mailing featuring a Bible stamped with the word "Banned?"

Well, now we find this (hat tip to Best of the Web).

"Council perceived what he was reading as hate speech. It would be homophobic today. They couldn't let him go on. You can't go up to the podium and start reading from the Bible," Assistant District Attorney Alyssa Kusturiss countered.

Do I think what this guy was doing was particular productive? No. Was he winning hearts and minds? Probably not. But it certainly was his right, and it certainly was not "hate speech."
