There's a distinction here. A "pedophile" is not someone who has committed a crime; that would be a "child sex abuser" or something of that nature. (In fact, I'm sure there are hundreds of thousands of pedophiles out there who have not and never will commit a crime.)



Okay. Change my speech to "I hate child sex abusers. I think they should be given the death penalty. I hate them and want others to hate them."
Isn't this still "expression whose primary purpose is to express or to incite hatred against any person or group"?

Also, I don't know how that statement "subverts the process of law". I specifically wrote, in my first example, the reason I wanted the group to be hated was to bring about a change in the law. A good way to get people to contact their representatives is to make a speech that causes them to become angry.

I'd also say I hate pedophiles. Don't let someone politically correct you because they have T-O-L-E-R-A-N-C-E for them in Oregon. How many pedophiles don't eventually become child abusers.

Oops, Jerry's name is a funny color again. Was it something he said?

I don't have much tolerance for sharing private messages in public. See this post if you're wondering why Jerry was suspended this time.

Reggie backed up his boisterousness with substance.

I predict Logan will be back posting within hours of his suspension ending.. He is addicted to causing trouble as a drunk is to cheap vodka.

Boring?

On the contrary. I think it's gonna be like a breath of fresh air.

Maybe we can have some good discussions now....

I really shouldn't bring this up, because I'm operating under a one-way truce with you. But I feel it necessary to give you a chance to apologize for some rather bigoted remarks you've made about Mexico and Mexicans in the past.



Nareed, I literally have no idea what you might be referring to. I've heavily criticized THE COUNTRY OF MEXICO in the past, but I have NEVER criticized the Mexican PEOPLE, and I have been very careful to draw the distinction between the two. To reiterate: I think the country of Mexico is a dysfunctional, corrupt cluster-fuck, and I think the Mexican people are the salt of the earth. I love Mexican food, music, and the general attitude of the people; I hate the policia shaking me down for all the money in my wallet before I can recross the border back into the US.
The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact that a drunken man is happier than a sober one. The happiness of credulity is a cheap and dangerous quality.---George Bernard Shaw

Try this. Last post. You are referring to a transaction between private parties, in other words Mexican people, and you kick the entire culture while you're at it.
