If he had said "let's pray for language of respect from our leaders" I would have been with him all the way. But when he demanded such speech he lost me. That path leads to tyranny and I will fight him all the way.

Think it through

As a citizen, I can demand that my government use language of respect. There's nothing wrong with that kind of expectation. Don't vote for people who don't speak respectfully of others. QED.

Your 'tyranny' issue would be in reverse - if the government demanded that i speak in whatever way was preferred.

The fact that you were triggered by a *single* word that in context doesn't even fit with your response... I'll stop there, and instead respectfully disagree with your outcome.

Yes, Richard

The only way to have free speech yourself is to grant free speech to all.

Carder on free speech

Carder is absolutely right but

In America we’re guaranteed free speech.

Speech one doesn’t like is the most important speech to protect

Thank you
