Disturbing number of students say hate speech is not free speech
A new report has revealed that support of the First Amendment among college students seems to be decreasing, as nearly half of students believe that hate speech should not be protected.
Conducted by the Knight Foundation, the survey reveals that 41 percent of college students believe hate speech should not be protected under the First Amendment, while 58 percent believe that it should be protected. While the majority of students believe that hate speech should be protected, 53 percent of college women contend it should not be protected, as well a majority of black students.
Over half of college students agree that shouting speakers down is ‚Äúalways‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúsometimes‚ÄĚ acceptable. At the same time, 83 percent of college students agree that using violence to end an event is ‚Äúnever acceptable.‚ÄĚ...
A good word to preach & to share with others in a spirit of love & humility, as I am what, I am, but only by the mere mercies of Christ Grace Alone; G-God‚Äôs, R-Righteousness-A-At-C-Christ- E-Expense!
Pro 1:7 The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom & instruction.
Pro 9:10 ‚ÄúThe fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, & the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
Here is a good example in this recent, open air college campus preaching, of some saints, I know. How the unregenerate, are willing to lie, as the camera is recording, as they hate the truth. That apart from Christ Alone, we aren‚Äôt good, or will ever achieve a self-righteous, by our best efforts. As we are ever so a fallen unregenerate sinner, who needs a new spiritual heart of flesh. That being lead & called to the Narrow Way, comes with a great cost of counting the cost, of being a lover & a follower of Christ!
As the girl in the Pink shirt, who had no issues with lying, & didn‚Äôt like the Biblical truth,, that people were called sinners!
Gal 4:16 Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?
Just another example of the curse from Isaiah 3:12, where children oppress and women rule. No one can even stand up to these kids. Don't they realize that scientists can prove that the human brain is not mature until age 25, when the part of the brain involved in decision making matures. No wonder you see those funny video TV shows involving younger people doing stupid things.

Lawlessness is to be expected in a fallen reprobate society. Especially one whose ideology is contrived by satanic Liberalism.
So called 'hate speech' is another invention of Satan's Liberalist followers. Invented terms such as 'homophobia' 'transgender' 'gay' have become the sign of moral corruption in those who call 'evil' - 'good'.
Isaiah 5:20 Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!"
2Peter 2:12 But these, as natural brute beasts, made to be taken and destroyed, speak evil of the things that they understand not; and shall utterly perish in their own corruption;"
Hate speech really is irrelevant to Christians because hate is tantamount to murder. The issue is with those who can't discern between hate and love which are the same who cannot tell the difference between male and female. If people are "gender-plexed", they will be quite challenged with anything else beyond basics. "Higher" education is more correctly associated with the drug-induced concept of "high" rather than that which it originally meant as far as intelligence.

If true, nearly half of students are lacking in understanding, for there is no such thing as hate speech, just as there is no such thing as hate crime. How does man measure what's in a heart of another? People don't have to hate people to say or do evil against them. A robber doesn't have to hate his victim to rob him. Nor does disagreeing with someone mean hate is involved. The purpose of terms like "hate speech" and "hate crime" is to control not only what you do, but what you think. Orwellian nightmare promoted by the evil one, and his useful ignorant helpers.
...shouting speakers down is ‚Äúalways‚ÄĚ or ‚Äúsometimes‚ÄĚ acceptable...
Just go and do some open-air preaching and you will experience this for yourself. Don't go around looking for a survey, and don't bother when it happens to you. Don't bother with a manmade constitution, just follow Jesus. And accept the consequences. Live for Jesus, not for politics. Live the Bible way. Read the four gospels and learn more about Jesus. Stick to his side of the tracks. Don't get sidetracked from sola scriptura.
