You’ve got to love how free our society is. Compared to many other countries, our freedom of speech is incredible. When I try to explain how our constitution works to my little second and third graders I say that if I wanted to go out on the street corner and yell as loud as I can that our president is a knucklehead – I could.
In many countries you would be MIA for a while for doing just that. Maybe even missing forever. Not in our country. We have a freedom of speech that allows us to rant, or lie, or tell the truth as we see fit. And, unless we slander no one can stop us. Hey, what’s not to love about that, right?

die at the hands of radical Muslims because of Jones’ attention-seeking, self-important foolishness? Won’t the action of burning another religion’s sacred holy book fan the flames of hatred on both sides? Isn’t this something that will play right into the hands of the radical Muslims trying to paint a world in which Christians and Jews and Muslims cannot coexist?
Love one another.
Love one another. Why is that so hard?
