Now I can agree with you on that. But even the freedom of speech in America has its limits.....and so should everythingI didn't mean to imply that it's right to burn the bible, it's obviously offensive to some people as is the burning of the flag.
Perhaps I should state that I also think that the banning of burning the flag is taking it a bit far in a democratic society. Even though I believe the act is stupid and those who burn it really have no point too it (same as the bible).
The point was that I don't think it's right to ban doing something because it's offensive to only some people. We are apart of a democratic society and therefore it's a persons right to express their opinions provided it's not physically harming some one.
and of course there are other ways to protest, there always is, It's just that some ways are more effective than others and the way that Manson did it, was clearly effective, though maybe he lacked the knowledge to understand that people can believe what they what. Then again, as I've stated the burning of the bible could have meant something else.
Ethically speaking, they should have a right to do so, but as you pointed out are they ethically alowed to when it offends some one?
