Meanings and biases

Everyone is biased in some way about something, but there is a big difference between a bias that shades an opinion a little, and a bias that completely changes the color or reality.

Insisting the public servants remain within the bounds of the law is not censorship. It is a restriction as to time and place so that the purposes for which the public servant is employed can be fulfilled.

Allowing people who are not in the majority to express their point of view and prevail in some matters of disputed rights is not persecution of the majority. Being in the majority does not convey the right to have everything one's way.

The radical right in the USA has a persecution complex. That misperception is based on unreasonable expectations, which are inconsistent with "liberty and justice for all." Being in the majority does not mean being the only ones.

That depends on the law in question, obviously.

If you pass a law requiring public servants to go and shut down printing presses, then obviously remaining within the bounds of the law is censorship.

It is a restriction as to time and place so that the purposes for which the public servant is employed can be fulfilled.

How would an "Impeach Bush" sticker on the back of a police car prevent the policeman from fulfilling his purpose as a public servant?

Allowing people who are not in the majority to express their point of view and prevail in some matters of disputed rights is not persecution of the majority. Being in the majority does not convey the right to have everything one's way.

In our modern society, that right is reserved for those who can get the courts to rule in their favor.

Wasn't it your son that started this over having his rights infringed? IOW, he felt persecuted to some degree?

Funny I always thought, majority rules , was one of the foundational principles of this country.

Paul, if this thing goes to court will it be a jury trial?

Yes, I presume it will be a jury trial.

As has been pointed out repeatedly, the right to worship is not subject to the majority. It is individual and inviolable. That is the essential point you folks keep missing here.

Then you'll have an uphill battle. I guess that's why you haven't sued already. Maybe you can bring in Judge Seidlin from FL.
