Maybe I'm biased, but I think a website that asks for Allah to “curse more American soldiers” should be considered "hate speech." But I don't believe that the government should have the right to ambiguously determine what is hateful or not. I despise the whole "hate crimes" mentality. Aren't most victims of violence victims of hate in some form or another? Why should a dead Catholic's killer get more time than the dead agnostic's killer, all other things being equal? So, as long as Samir Khan isn't telling lies or slandering others, he has my "blessing" to continue to do what he is doing.
I'll pray for him. Heh. That's the best revenge anyway.
Mr. Khan is fortunate to live in the US, where the soldiers he curses die to defend the Constitution and its Bill of Rights which protects his freedom to create such a website. Woe, though, to those who live in Europe. In Belgium, a bishop was tried for homophobia for saying he agreed with Sigmund Freud "that homosexuality is the result of hindered sexual development."
The bishop was acquitted, but even he recognizes that they are falling down that slippery slope: "I know very well that in a few years, I could be imprisoned for holding this position..."
Historians like to talk about the swinging pendulum. The 1920s and 30s and 40s found homosexuals rounded up and put in death camps. Perhaps the 2020s or the 2030s or the 2040s will fill the prisons with anyone who dares to think homosexuality is abnormal. Beware the Thought Police.
I just hope those cursed American soldiers are still around to liberate Europe once again.
