All speech should be protected except for speech that directly incites violence.

  The rule in law is that the given speech must leave time for rebuttal. If someone says so and so is scum now let's go kill them; that would be inciting violence. There is no time for rebuttal. If someone says so and so is scum and he should be killed then that is protected I believe. It leaves time for rebuttal. It does not call for immediate action. So clearly religious hate speech leaves ample time for rebuttal.

Would preaching hate and violence toward the religious be ok?
JonathanDJ says2014-02-21T02:21:19.033
Yes, as long is you don't call for immediate action.
missmedic says2014-02-21T02:22:52.193
Wow
JonathanDJ says2014-02-21T02:23:20.853
That's the law.

That so sad that you think that way, it does bode well for a peaceful world.

What would you suggest?

What I consider okay speech, someone else considers wildly offensive... Freedom of speech isn't the Freedom to say only nice things... That wouldn't be free. Freedom of speech is in place to protect us from overly sensitive people, not vice versa.

This is an unwise uses of intellectual thought, trying to justify hate and violence. Hate is wrong and will always be wrong.
JonathanDJ says2014-02-21T18:58:00.220
Missmedic< in what way have any of us in any way justified hate and violence even once.

"If someone says so and so is scum and he should be killed then that is protected I believe. It leaves time for rebuttal. It does not call for immediate action. So clearly religious hate speech leaves ample time for rebuttal." and to me this is wrong

Then to you the First Amendment and it's established legal precedents of the last 237 years are wrong.
