Posted on 09/14/2010 6:19:55 AM PDT by kristinn
U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer has expressed a willingness to ban protesters from burning the Koran as the modern day equivalent of shouting fire in a crowded theater.
The Supreme Court has ruled burning the American flag in protest is protected speech under the First Amendment of the Constitution.
Breyer spoke to George Stephanopoulos on ABC's Good Morning America today:
But Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer told me on "GMA" that he's not prepared to conclude that -- in the internet age -- the First Amendment condones Koran burning.
Holmes said it doesnt mean you can shout 'fire' in a crowded theater, Breyer told me. Well, what is it? Why? Because people will be trampled to death. And what is the crowded theater today? What is the being trampled to death?
Breyer is promoting his new book, Making Our Democracy Work.
Breyer was appointed to the Supreme Court in 1994 by President Bill Clinton.
I’ve got an idea. If Muslims react violently, send in the troops or the cops. Arrest them, or shoot them if necessary, just as one would do, not Christians, real Christians don’t riot or murder, but Westerners.
Try them, punish them with the appropriate penalty. Repeat as often as necessary.
Is Rauf ‘building bridges or burning them?
Stupid kuh-ffir. You will not bow to islam. You will bow to mecca, six times per day. And pay the jizyah, and thank allah that we allow you to live.
Welcome to Obamaland. :(:(:(
I’m open to impeaching SCOTUS members that have more in common with Marxist dogma than the Constitution they are supposed to be ruling on.
I wonder if he would be open to banning ‘honor killings’?
seeing as islam is not a religion but more of a political ideology then why is it being hidden by the 1sr amendment anyway.
Oh, I think a hard tyrannny is the only way to stop these loons. We just have to make sure OUR guy is the tyrant.
I would love to ask “Justice” Breyer what is next to be banned.....a ban on drawing mohammed? How about short skirts because that offends muslims?
If this is okay to ban, then the sky is the limit.
IMO, this is foolish enough to warrant stripping him of his SCOTUS status......if he clearly is not ready to uphold the Constitution, he is not fit for the job.
Feh. Hitler may have been saying he would cease further aggression out of one side of his mouth, but he had been telling a completely different story out of the other, and had been at least since the publication of Mein Kampf. Hitler played the same al-taqqiyah game as these moozles. If there is one thing that salvages Chamberlain a little, it is that when it became apparent that he had been had, he became a war hawk, a strong one.
It is morally very bad under i-slam for a woman to become shaheed, because she might expose, someone might see, private parts.
The man is prejudging a case which is not yet before him. He should be impeached!
animals SYMBOLS are equal but some animals SYMBOLS are more equal than others".
Isn't leftist newspeak just dandy?
He’s open to burning the US Flag; he’s open to burning up your property deed and handing it over to the government; and apparently he’s open to burning the US Constitution; but a ban on burning the koran seems reasonable to him.
"- Burning the Holy Bible - the equivalent of yelling "fire" in a crowded theater."
I'm sure you were referring to the burning of the Quran, not the Holy Bible, with regards to Breyer's equating that with yelling fire in a crowded theater.
Exactly what I had in mind!!
Let them start arresting people for it.
If they outlaw it, millions of people will do it out of spite for the law.
They all hate Christ. That’s it in a nutshell.
And Satan keeps his “troops” from fighting each other to the extent that he can.
