Religious speech is protected speech. We have freedom of speech and we have freedom of religion, so we have freedom to discuss religion on an equal basis with any other world view. Why do liberals find pornography and atheistic speech constituitionally protected speech, but deny the rights of others who don't see things their way? Is this intolerance or what?

It's one thing to discuss religion, which few liberals oppose, but it's another for a school (and therefore the state) to promote one particular religion over all others. Examples include mandatory prayer at commencement and other events.

Few liberals would approve of pornography in the classroom. On the other hand, some conservatives do oppose classroom discussions of how our own species reproduces by labeling it pornography. Hmmm, we can discuss frog reproduction, why not human?
