I don't know that I wish him well. If he is spewing and spreading anti-religious hatred, I say he deserved it. Yes we have free speach. But all that means is you won't get arrested. That doesn't entitle you to not pay a price for your actions. I certainly wouldn't go into Camden NJ or Philly yelling the 'N' word. I'm free to do so, but I'm pretty sure I'd be a little worse for wear than the guy in the article. I also wouldn't tell a big strapping lad that I did his mother and sister. Well, you get my drift.
A truly Christian response.
One of the posters on this thread is now sitting in a dark room feverishly collecting posts. Oddly enough, this same character went on defending the guy's right to be rude and abusive. Probably more out of unspoken agreement with Mirecki's sentiments.
I responded, much in the same manner as you mentioned in your post--that schmucks like Mirecki make these comments in a 'safe' environment, and they wouldn't dare say the same in a back alley or other less hospitable environments. If the story is true, then it bothers me, since Mirecki comes awfully close to uttering 'fighting words'. I can't say that I necessarily feel sympathy for the guy, but then again, it is regretful that society is coming to this--after all, the last acceptable bigotry seems to be slamming Christians, and it seems some are running out of cheeks to turn.

Yes, brother! Preach it! That heathen professor deserved to be beaten in Jesus' name! Hope these two saints visit him tomorrow and cap the heathen's a$$ to show him how merciful and loving God is.
