I really had ditched commenting about the charges being dismissed against Christian "demonstrators" from the Gay "Rights" Parade in Philadelphia but as I was perusing my normal blog reading, Sherry over at bittersweetme.net posted a blurb of what the judge said that I think bears comment.
"We are one of the very few countries that protects unpopular speech,"-Judge Pamela Dembe
Excuse me, but this judge is comparing preaching the Bible and the word of God with "unpopular speech"? Does she live in the same America as the rest of us? While it is true that even unpopular speech is protected under the First Amendment, to liken this situation to defending the KKK or left wing Nazis is going a bit far on the Judge's part.
You can view the video of the event here. Watching it you can clearly see that it is not the Christians that are trying to infringe upon anyone's rights, but rather the Pink Angels that harrass the Christians. You will also hear several exchanges between the protestors and offices on the scene where the officers treat the Christians like criminals and even wind up arresting them for charges unknown.
A federal action against the officers is underway and well it should be. This abuse of power to appease a group that doesn't like letting the other side speak cannot go unpunished and police officers that cannot do their duty must also be punished.
Leave a comment if you like! *Note if you are a left wing, tin hat wearing, pro-Marxist loon that likes to post "anonymously" you will be treated like the kook you are!
