  •  It sounds like assault - the profs have a (0+ / 0-)

    reason to fear for their lives. Others are being urged to "Kill for Christ". If I were threatened like that, I would file 1) a restraining order and 2) a lawsuit for the threatening language that scared me. Not protected speech.

    There are too many loony-tunes who think that God wants them to kill (despite the commandment that says don't murder). They feel as long as they are doing God's work, they aren't really murdering anyone.

    Truly scary!!!

    •  Filing a lawsuit would be a waste of time. (0+ / 0-)

      There's not a chance you're going to win.  It's clearly protected speech.  We can debate whether that's a good thing or not, but those are the facts.

      •  Maybe protected, but still assault (0+ / 0-)

        if I fear someone is being encourage to kill me.

      •  Intentional infliction of emotional distress? (0+ / 0-)

        Harassment? Incitement? There must be something. I bet if the tables were turned, some RW sleaze like David Addington would be right there with a legal loophole or an outlandish interpretation or cease and desist order or something.
