Think of it this way....if it is written into the constitution, then it isn't a freedom of speech issue anymore....it's a win, win situation!!I can't agree Jay. It should not be banned. The US Supreme Court was clear on this:
"If there is a bedrock principle underlying the First Amendment, it is that the Government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable."I know we don't agree here... I just think it is a noble cause....I'm a bit of a sucker for a good flag.
If it was written into the constitution...the supreme court couldn't do anything about it....I know what you're saying also. But the Constitution is meant to give rights, not take them away. Whats next? Making abortion illegal?
