Last month we wrote about this church in Fitchburg which was causing a stir by posting a sign that said, “Marriage is 1 man and 1 woman…….and you know it” on their front lawn:
Our take was simple – we don’t agree with that, but they have the right to say it. And the fact that the same people defending Colin Kaepernick’s right to kneel during the National Anthem because of free speech are the same people who supported defacing this sign because it offended them, makes them the biggest hypocrites on earth. Well the church is back in the Discussing Fitchburg Facebook page with a new message this week….
Oh yea, this should go over real well. Notice that abortion is one of the issues that we have no interest in writing about here at Turtleboy Sports. Too divisive. Makes people hate each other. We’re here to unite people. So our take on this sign is simple – they have a right to put it up, and if it triggers you then just don’t look at it. Pretty simple concept, right? Oh wait, you mean the “free speech as long as I agree with it” patrol is triggered and demands that this sign be taken down? Never thought I’d see the day. Let’s see what they have to say…..
So let me get this straight. You think that opinions you don’t agree with shouldn’t be posted in public areas, but yet here you are posting a ridiculous opinion about suppressing free speech on Facebook – the most highly trafficked website in the world. Yea, that makes TONS of sense.
Oh, look who it is – Christi Frink. The same chick who led a crusade to force Fitchburg and Leominster to take down anti-panhandling signs because it would hurt panhandlers feelings.
Yea, she just can’t stop finding things to be offended by apparently.
So Christi, when should free speech be censored?
Oh I see. So free speech should be restricted if it makes people feel bad about themselves. I actually think that’s written in the Constitution somewhere. Our founding fathers were VERY concerned about people’s feelings being hurt in 2016. And for the record, if you don’t have a problem with abortion, then a sign outside of a church shouldn’t make you feel bad. But if a sign like this triggers you, then maybe you shouldn’t be getting an abortion. Just a thought.
Sounds like your “friend” needs a safe space and probably shouldn’t leave the house without a helmet on. Mentioning suicide is the failsafe play in the SJW handbook though. It’s the only thing they can come up with to combat free speech. “I don’t like that sign, and someone out there might see that sign and commit suicide. Therefore it should come down.” Whereas most rational people would say, “That person probably needs serious psychological help if a sign forces them to end their life.”
Wait…….so if they know abortion isn’t murder, and then you see a sign that says “abortion is murder,” then why would that trigger you? Sounds like your friend doesn’t really “know” that after all.
So let me get this straight. This sign not only can traumatize women who have had an abortion, it can also traumatize people who think women should have the right to an abortion? OK then.
Then this guy just came in out of nowhere with his brilliant thoughts:
Yea, why should they ignore someone else’s opinion they don’t agree with? This is America. A country founded by men and women who didn’t want to listen to other people’s opinions on anything. “Freedom of speech ends the second it’s used to condone hatred.” Sorry Ryan, but that’s not how any of this works. Freedom of speech means that anyone can tell you how much they hate you whenever they wanna tell you that. After all, this is why the founding fathers created a bill of rights – because the things they were saying and advocating for were deemed by the British to potentially incite revolution. Know what I mean?
Oh for fuck’s sake. People are really this dumb? Hey numbnuts, the British suppressed the rights of colonists, including free speech. That’s why the revolution started. Groups have every right to try to “impose” their beliefs on you. And as an adult you have the choice to either reject those beliefs or accept them.
Oh I see. So it’s not the “abortion is murder” part you have a problem with. It’s the “and you know it” part. Well…..do you know it? Because if you don’t, then it sounds like that sign isn’t telling the truth. So…..you’re proposing a ban on lying?
And just for the record, these people in a Fitchburg church hardly represent all people who hold religious beliefs:
Finally Christ emerged with more hot takes towards the end:
Yea, if you don’t have a vagina or haven’t had an abortion then you can’t have an opinion about the First Amendment. This is how freedom works. Evidently she did not get this gentlemen’s transphobic reply to her asinine commentary:
Social Justice Warriors are the stupidest people on planet earth. All you have to do is size up the people liking these comments to understand that:
Hey here’s an idea – if you don’t like this church’s sign then just make your own sign and stand outside of the church with it. Just be like, “This sign isn’t true,” or “Nuh-uh.” It’s your right to do that. But you don’t have the right to tell people in a free country that they can’t express their opinion about a controversial issue like abortion.
