Now that everyone in the country spent Wednesday eating chicken sandwiches, or not eating chicken sandwiches, or arguing about whether your free speech rights give you the right to say bad things about a whole group of people...I have an idea.
Could we all try to get behind a movement to ignore ignorance? By which I mean that wacky church group from the midwest that shows up at the funerals of fallen soldiers, police, firefighters and says that God wants them dead because of America's sinfulness.
I'm not going to mention their name, but you know who they are, with their signs and their hateful speech. Yes, as a free speech advocate I have to support anyone's right to speak their minds. But there are some minds that just really have spoken all they need to.
It's like George Carlin's idea about gun control: don't try to limit the amount of guns that people can have. Just limit the amount of bullets they can have, and they can throw their guns at each other all day. Let this church group show up with their placards and their mean thoughts. If the TV news and the press and the bloggers would stop talking about them, perhaps they'd start hitting each other over the head with their signs like Moe and no one would even notice.
