Lawman, this thread is very difficult to participate in without drawing a deeper perspective in. I'm not ignoring your comment about keeping "speech under the first amendment. Let's start there". But you did leave the window open just a tad so I'm going to respectfully exploit the opportunity but I'll keep it mild compared to what I would normally say about the arrogance of fundamentalists.
Laws are written to give us guidance. They are not meant to be a replacement for decency. Even though it may have been legally alright to do what those folks are doing, according to the law of man, it is in defiance of higher laws. Those fundamentalists are as wicked as extremists. I don't believe in physical war or shedding blood of any human or any living species on this earth. Regardless it is not up to us to judge as those wretched fundamentalists are doing. And no, God hates no one, not even soldiers. Some day, in some life, in some mansion, they too will finally realize the truth. The real holy war though, is an internal one. As soon as we pick up physical weapons as a form of resolving the "I'm right you're wrong, bang bang" argument -- we've automatically lost, not just the battle, but the whole war. Reset, reload, here's a club, there is a new world to populate, go fight those dinosaurs and wildebeests with all that misunderstanding within. The porch light is eternally on when we decide we've had enough. Then and only then do we enter into the seventh day. If anyone one of us was lost on earth, our fathers wouldn't rest until we were home safely. It's no different on a universal level.
To those who overcome...they shall go out no more.
